{NEW TO SHOP} canada day diy printable party


I can hardly believe what a busy week this has been! Geez, I can hardly believe it is the end of the school year on Thursday and Canada Day on Friday! So much to do to get ready for the long weekend and I’m not hosting a big Canada Day party!

How about you? Are you hosting a Canada Day party this year? Ive been seeing a lot of party printables and party ideas for Independence Day, but not so much for Canada Day! So I had to change that!

And with the last day of school back-to-back with Canada Day, I wanted to make sure there was a quick and easy party solution for Canada Day. So today I launched my new Canada Day Holiday Collection DIY Printable Party, just in time for Canada Day!

A quick and easy, just print off and decorate kinda party! Everything you need to get in the Canada Day spirit, minus the spirits and the fireworks, but I know you’ve got a handle on those, yes?

Party circles, party flags (for your straws or toothpicks), banner, bottle wrappers (which are perfect napkin rings), decorative papers (so you can get your craft on, if you have time) and food labels that are pre-filled with a variety of Canada Day food favorites, including: BBQ Chicken, BBQ Beef, BBQ Pork, Watermelon, Hamburgers, Hot Dogs, Ribs, Corn on the Cob, Water, Pop, Cake, Pie, Marshmallow Salad, Potato Salad, Macaroni Salad, Sweets & Treats. There’s also a sheet of BLANK tent cards for you to fill in just in case I missed something on your menu.

The Canada Day Holiday Collection DIY Printable Party is available in my Etsy shop for only $9.00!

So spread the news (and the love) my Canadian friends! Canadian party throwers now have a DIY Printable Party option, woot!

wonderland part 4 – fun details


Welcome to Wonderland Part 4 – Fun Details, the final post detailing my daughter’s Wonderland birthday party! This one is a short and sweet highlight of some of the fun details I incorporated into the party to reference the Disney version of the Alice in Wonderland story.

One is the Cheshire Cat grin. One of games the girls played was ‘Find the Cheshire Cat’. Once all the girls arrived in Wonderland, I showed them a picture of the Cheshire Cat grin and sent them on a hunt to find the Cheshire Cat. They wandered around looking for the grin, but it was once they sat down at the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party that one of the little girls screamed with delight “the Cheshire Cat!!”.

In the Disney movie, Alice wanders around the forest trying to find her way when she comes across some birds; one bird shaped like a pair of glasses and one bird shaped like a mirror wearing a pair of glasses. To give the girls a little moment of fun, I crafted this bird out of a mirror and some orange craft foam for the girls to peek into.

As a last little bit of fun, as the girls wandered around Wonderland in search of their next activity, they came across this post directing them where to go… kind of.

See how some of the arrows are a little crumpled? Crazy, excited 4 year olds :).

Throwing an Alice in Wonderland themed party and in need of some Wonderland signs? These arrows are in my Etsy shop just for mama’s who need a bit of whimsy for their Wonderland parties!

I hope you enjoyed this week in Wonderland! I really enjoyed showing you my daughter’s birthday party. A lot of prep, design and love went into creating every bit of this party and I really hope it inspired you. If you have a moment, I would love to hear what you think!

a day of fun and crafting


It’s been a great day around these parts! An early morning craft and gab session with some of my favorite girlfriends and an afternoon of crafting and paper cutting with my favorite daughters. I love how my girls tend to stick around the studio when I’m busy preparing a printable set for launch or testing out a table design for an upcoming client party. They like to get in and help, let me know what they think looks good, and sometimes just watch and stare at all the pretties that are lying around. I get excited by what I do and I love watching them get excited about what I do! I love watching them watch the process with eager eyes and open hearts. It’s something I love to share with them and I really, really LOVE having them see their mama happy and productive. It also inspires them to get crafty and how could I not love that!

Such a good, fun day. Want a sneak peek at what’s coming your way, and to my Etsy shop later this week?

Bright colors and lots o love! Off try and sneak a little bit of knitting in before bed. Tomorrow is going to be another busy, busy day!
