Little House on the Prairie Birthday Party

When you have five kids and a small budget and not a ton of extra time you have to get creative with how you celebrate their birthdays. All three of our girls have their birthdays in October and it’s also our Anniversary month. So we decided a while back that we would make their birthday special by taking the birthday kid out to breakfast, then letting them pick what they wanted me to make for dinner and the flavor and decorations on their cake. We then let them have a big “friend” birthday party when they turn 1, 5 and 10. And this year my fourth child turned 5. How is that possible!! 
The theme she chose for her birthday party is an Autumn Harvest Party…and I would tell you all about it but the party isn’t until this coming Saturday. But I am VERY excited about her party because we have a family from church who has agreed to bring their horse so all the party guests can ride the horse. My girls LOVE horses so this will be a really fun surprise for them. We’ve been lucky with the spacing of the kids because there won’t be a year where two kids have big parties in the same year. But I will be throwing at least one party every year for a while!! And that’s okay because I love to throw a good “theme” party every once in a while.
I ask my kids to pick a theme early enough so I can start pinning ideas and making things ahead of time for the party. Of course I always run out of time and don’t get to everything I wanted to. This year I totally forgot to mail invitation so I had to do a Facebook message and that totally drives me nuts!!
Last year my oldest turned 10 and she picked a “Little House on the Prairie” theme and we had a really fun party!!! I love putting together parties and would love to do this for other people as well. I set up and “Olsen’s mercantile” in our patio and we played games and did some crafts. We asked the girls to dress up like Laura and Mary too. It was a great time!! 
Here are some pictures from her party.

My friend Kellee made the cookies and we used them as party favors!! She’s making some again this year for Abi’s party!!

Naomi asked for a pie instead of a cake and I think it fit the theme perfectly!!

The girls did a little painting…

and sewing…

And they all had some personalized gifts to take home!

They also played some games, drop the pin in the bucket and a potato sack race. 
The girls all had a really good time and I was wiped out!! It was so much fun creating these memories with these girls for my daughter…it was just a few months later that we found out we would be moving. I’m so glad she had this time with her friends!!

 
I can’t wait to share a little bit about Abi’s birthday party next month!! 
How do you make your kids birthdays extra special?!

Miss P’s 5th Birthday Art Party

Hi everyone! 
 I hope you had a lovely Memorial Day weekend. 
I am here today to share with you all the details of Miss P’s 5th birthday party we had 2 weeks ago. 
I asked Miss P what kind of party she would like to have and after discussing our options, she decided on having an Art Party at our house with her friends.
It was a fun, colorful afternoon! 
 Here is the invitation I designed for the occasion. It was fun making this one and I was just as excited as she was to get them printed out and have her pass them out to all of her friends at school and those that we’ve known from outside of school.
Since I made the invitation so colorful and it had some rainbow colors going on, I ran with that idea for all the rest of the party decorations. 
Here’s how I decorated for the party.
And I totally apologize for the crappy lighting in the photos. I swear, it is a cloudy day every year on her birthday parties and we do not have very good light in our dining room plus I desperately need to buy a new camera. 🙁
Guests were greeted at the door with a welcome to Miss P’s Art Studio.
 Since it was a painting art party, we hung two paint can from two corners of the dining room and used plastic table clothes to make it look like paint is flying out all over the light then dripping down.
 I then topped the table with more plastic table clothes in the matching colors of the “paint” dripping off the light itself.
Each spot had a party hat (as requested by Miss P), an apron, and then a mini easel with the guests names painted on a canvas.
 In the center of the table I placed a metal tray and on top of the tray I painted a number 5 in rainbow colors, a vase with daisies, and some mason jars filled with paint brushes. 
The paint brushes were decorations but were also for the guests to use to work on their projects. Gotta love something that pulls double duty! 
Like I stated previously, each spot had a mini easel with the guest name painted on a rainbow painted canvas.
 
 On one wall, I bought some old frames from Goodwill then some from Michael’s and spray painted them again, in bright rainbow colors. 
Then Miss P and Miss S drew some pictures and we just placed those in each of the frames for an “art gallery.”
On the wall where our buffet sits, we strung up more plastic table clothes in rainbow pattern and tucked it behind the buffet. 
I found this happy birthday banner at Target and it was blank and you color it in which I thought was perfect since this was an art party. We had a family evening on night painting it together. 
I painted another larger number 5 and propped that up in one corner with another jar of flowers, hydrangeas splashed with bright colors, my light box in the center saying “celebrate and paint,” then I just placed the favor bags on the other end.
I used our bar cart in one corner to place the paint, palettes, canvases, and bird houses to have everything that we would be using during the party in one easy spot.
In the kitchen, we took another paint can and a red table cloth to make it look like paint was spilling all over the food table.
 I then just so happened to have these colorful banners and decided to hang them in the window by the food table to bring more color into the area and the kitchen.
I found these plated and napkins at Hobby Lobby and snatched them up since they were perfect with the theme.
The cake was totally NOT what I asked for but I didn’t mind it so much in the end since it looked like it was splattered with paint. Plus, I wanted vanilla, they only had chocolate made that morning for some reason, so we got it for a discounted price as well.
And lastly, the favor bags were stuffed with bubbles, watercolors, a stackable crayon and a stencil so they could continue the creative fun at home. 
Time for the party! 
Miss P was super excited to greet her guests and was dying for them to show up.
 We began by painting a canvas. 
I taped off the guest’s initials on a canvas and they were to paint the canvas and then once dry we would peel off the tape to reveal their initial.
It was perfect for all of the kiddos to do.
We let them pick their own colors of paint and placed them in their paint palettes and let them go to town.
We did have to convince them to paint OVER their letter but they caught on.
And they all turned out great and unique! 
Once we finished the canvas painting, we moved on to painting bird houses.
They all took their time and again, each house was so cute and unique.
After we finished the bird houses, it was time to take a break and eat some pizza.
Once pizza was complete we had cake and cupcakes.
As for the cupcakes, I placed multiple choices of sprinkles in a palette plate and then each guest got to decorate their own cupcake however they wanted too.
Each girl took a different route using either only a few sprinkles or multiple types.
But they each enjoyed making their own and eating them.
After cupcakes we opened presents and then the girls were free to play or leave or whatever! 
It was a super fun time and I think everyone enjoyed themselves.
Miss P loved it and that is the only thing that matters most! 🙂

Miss P’s Royal Tea Party Birthday Party

Today, Miss P turns 4, FOUR!!!
How is that even possible people? 
And I swear I’ve looked at her this past week and she looks like a whole new kid too! So much older over night! 🙁
 This past weekend we had her birthday party, (hence why I’ve disappeared on the blog and on FB the past week or two since I’ve been in planning mode), and it was a super fun! This was her first party with her actual friends instead of just our friends and their kids.
We went with the theme of a Royal Tea Party.
 I designed the invitations like I have in the past. I designed two and let Miss P pick which one she liked best and this is what she chose.
And here are the rest of the details from the party.
The party was mostly in our dining room so I wanted to make it extra special.

We used tulle and draped it on the ceiling. We wrapped it around the light fixture and then placed small command hooks on the walls. We wrapped a small rubber band on the end and just hooked it onto the hook. 
It really helped bring the ceiling down a little and was the perfect touch.
On the buffet I put a light box with some flowers. I then hung another fabric tassel banner on the mirror.
The bay window had the fabric tassel banner on it and then the presents were placed on one side of the seat. 
I placed pictures of P on the other side.
 I placed some of the fabric I bought for the tassel banner and then framed newborn through 4 yr old photos of her. I also put one of the vintage tea cups I bought there as well with a faux flower to tie in the tea party. 
The table is my favorite part.
I used a white sheet as a table cloth and tied or pinned it up really tight under the table so the kiddos wouldn’t move it around.
I used a printed burlap runner that I already had from my best friend’s bridal shower and placed that down the table. 
 On top of that I placed two chargers I’ve had for a while now that I found at Michael’s.
 I put a vintage plate with cookies on it on one charger.
And the tea pot on another.  I found this tea pot at Goodwill and it worked perfectly!
Next to the chargers, I placed two more vintage tea cups and saucers with faux flowers in them as well. 
I set each place setting for all the little princesses.
I cut little doily place mats out of scrapbook paper. I found these Meri Meri “I am a Princess” plates and napkins and knew I had to get them for the party.
I stacked the dessert plate on the dinner plate and then placed a little name card on the plate. 
Each guest had a tiara at their place setting along with a personalized tea cup and saucer and both of these items were their party favors.
 My mom found these small tea cups and saucers at Old Time Pottery and brought them with her.
I then just took a paint pen Sharpie and wrote the first initial of each princess attending and baked them in the oven to make them permanent.
The birthday girl had a fancier crown than everyone else.
In the living room, I printed out these tea time printables for the girls to color as they come in or in between activities. There was a hashtag at the bottom that I just cut off to fit our party.
I set up the photo booth in the kitchen.
I place the wood bulletin board paper that I’ve had for years now on the floor and then bought a roll of photo back drop paper at Hobby Lobby and taped it up.
I made another fabric tassel banner and hung it lower on the background so you would see it in the photos with the girls and then put a little leftover white tulle on the ground to soften it a little. 
On our bar next to the backdrop, I placed all the photo booth needs.
I covered the bar with more fabric that was used to make the banner. Then, a bucket full of props for the photo booth, some candles and another tea cup with faux flowers, two Instax cameras to use at the photo booth and lastly a photo album to place the photos in for Miss P to look back on her party sat on top.
The photo booth was definitely a big hit! 
I placed all the food in the kitchen as well.
I served:
-cookies
-pigs in a blanket
-homemade chicken salad with potato rolls and tomatoes and lettuce to top
-fruit salad
-pasta salad
-veggie tray and dip
-and strictly for the kids I made PB&J, PB, Jelly, PB and Marshmallow sandwiches.

For drinks, I served sweet and unsweet tea, water, and then I created a fruit tea for the kids combining normal iced tea and a berry juice. They all loved it! 
 I placed out the rest of the vintage tea cups that I bought for the adults to use for their tea as well. 
And lastly, what would a birthday party be with a cake?
 We had to go the princess route with this one. I got it at Wal-Mart and was actually a cupcake cake. It looked so good and was equally delicious! 
The party itself was a lot of fun! 
All the girls showed up in their princess dresses ready for tea.
 Wrangling 9 little girls, ages 5- 10 mths, was like wrangling cats but we managed! lol
 We started with tea and eating.
 Then moved on to making scepters. You know, every princess needs one! 
 I’ll be sure to share these with you all next week! 
 After creating the scepters, it was time for cake and presents.
 The party was a lot of fun and a crazy whirlwind! 
I am so happy with how it all came out and Miss P had a fabulous time with all her friends!

Fun Weekend Events

This was a fun weekend in our household.
Not only was it Halloween but we celebrated Miss S turning 2. 
Halloween was a lot of fun this year with both girls fully able to participate. 
We started the day by finally carving our pumpkins then after nap they got all dressed up and we started trick or treating about 430. Trick or Treating starts early here in our little town which was so nice because we were then home early enough for dinner. And does our town Trick or Treat!! I have never seen so many people out and about trick or treating. It was so fun! 
The girls got all dressed up as an adorable little Monster and Miss P was her favorite princess, Cinderella.
Of course Miss P went right up saying Trick or Treat like it was nothing but I was worries Miss S would freak out with all the costumes and strangers but I think once she realized people were giving her candy, she was all about it too! 

That night we put Miss S to bed for the last time as a one year old and she woke up as a two year old! So crazy to think that it was already two years ago she made her grand debut on our living room floor. (New here, check out her birth story here.)
 I decorated the downstairs with streamers, balloons, and a sign and decorate her bedroom door and threw balloons on her bedroom floor as well. 
She was super excited about everything but I think I could have just placed balloons everywhere on the floor and she would have been in Heaven.
 My parents came up for a visit and my mom created her a super cute birthday shirt to wear.
 She was a happy birthday girl, for most of the day. lol
 She was really into opening presents this year too which was so fun to watch! She would pull out all the tissue paper and get so excited when she looked in and got her first glance of her present.
 Makes me excited for Christmas! 
 And then after all the gifts were opened, the rest of the morning was spent playing and checking out all the new fun things.
And to end the day we ate some pizza and celebrated with a birthday cake which she was also excited about the new crown and scepter toys she got to play with after.
It was a great weekend making memories together. 
One last thing, today is the last day to apply to become a contributor here on AGI
I’d love for you to apply if you are creative, love to diy, or love to cook!

Toilet Paper Tube Owls

I have another item I created for Miss S’ party and I think, think, it is the last one.
I am not too sure and will have to go back to all my pictures and see if I missed something. 
I got creative with some toilet paper tubes and repurposed them into some super cute owls. 
 They are pretty simple so here is how to make some. 
Supplies:
 – Scrapbook paper
-Empty TP tubes
-Double Sided Tape
-Cupcake Liners
-Scissors
-Hot Glue Gun

Ignore the baker’s twine. I took this picture for another project and then changed gears to the owls. 
Begin by cutting the scrapbook paper the length of the toilet paper tubes. 
Using double sided tape, tape the paper onto the tube.
Stand the tube on one end and with your fingers, press down one side of the tube. Place a piece of double sided tape on it.
Then, fold down the other side of the tube and press it firmly on the tape.
I found it best to stick my finger or something inside the tube to make sure it stuck to the tape well.
Time to grab your cupcake liners.
You will use 2 liners per owl.
To create the ruffle feathers on the front of the owl, begin by folding the liner in half.
Then fold the liner in half again.
Using a pair of scissors, cut the tip off the liner where the liner’s bottom starts.
Next, cut the seams so you have 4 pieces.
Using hot glue or a strong glue, glue the ruffle feathers onto the front of the tube overlapping them. 
To create the wings, fold another liner in half.
You will then cut the liner in half, well really a little more than half, to create a triangle.
Then cut the seam to create two wings. 
Tape or glue the wings to the back of the owl.
Here is a view of the front with the ruffles and the wings attached.
 I cut out some circles in two different sizes to layer for the eyes then just used a black marker for the pupil.
Glue the eyes onto the owl.
I then just cut a small beak out of brown paper and glued it on as well.
Here is my little parliament of owls. (Did you know a group of owls is called a parliament?!)
Cute right?!
 For the party, I just slipped the open end of the tube onto a tree branch and that was it! 
They turned out super cute and I loved how they looked on the branches!!

Mod Podge Wooden Owl

Holy cow! 
With all the craziness of the holidays and Christmas coming, I totally forgot that I never finished sharing ideas that I created for Miss S’ first birthday party! Oops! 
So I am here today with another little project I created for her party. 
To make your own you’ll need.
:
Supplies:
-Wooden Owl (bought at Hobby Lobby)
-Acrylic Paint
-Scrapbook Paper
-Mod Podge
-Wood Glue

This is how the owl looks when you buy it. All the pieces are attached to the body of the owl.
You will need to pull the eyes, wings, and then the belly portions off the main owl body.
Give everything a coat of paint. I used white so my papers stood out.
Trace the wings and body on scrapbook paper and cut out. 
Using Mod Podge, glue the paper onto the correct body part. 
 If the paper sticks out over the edge of the wood shape, take a file and just file it off the edges.
Then use wood glue to glue the pieces back onto the main body.
I painted the eyes white and added a bright yellow ring on the outside for a little extra pop of color. 
Then used black paint for the pupils.
Use the wood glue once again to glue the eyes onto the body.
I wanted my owl to have a little beak so I just took a scrap piece of scrapbook paper I had on hand and cut out a little beak and glued it down.
And that’s it!! 
You could always add another paper pattern on the belly region for a little something extra. 
For the party, I just propped it up in the tree that was in my parents living room like it was peaking out over the party. 
I think it turned out super cute!

Owl Pillow Box Favors

I have another item that I created for Miss S’ birthday party
 I created some pillow boxes to use as favors and they were super cute and easy to make. 
Here is how I created it.
 Supplies:
-Scrapbook paper
-Double Sided Tape or Glue Stick
-Silhouette Machine
 I used my Silhouette Cameo to make these boxes so I browsed their online store and found numerous pillow boxes that looked like owls but I decided to pick this Owl Pillow Box to use.
 
I broke up all the parts of the box into separate windows so I could use multiple papers and cut everything out at once for the number of boxes I was making.
 When the box body itself is cut, the machine cuts perforations where the box gets folded to make it even easier.
Fold the box and use double sided tape or a glue stick to put it together.
 
 The ruffles for the eyes get cut into two separate pieces so you will need to glue these together as well. 
Then glue the eyes onto the ruffles.
I just used a black marker to draw on the pupils.
 Now it is time to attached to owl body. Place tape or glue near the bottom of eyes. Don’t go above center too much. The eyes will stick above the top of the box.
Tape down.
Double check that you didn’t take the eyes onto the flaps and see if you can close them.
Then apply the beak. 
And they are done!
I ruffled the feathers on the front before I put them together.
I used some thinner paper, so I also used double sided tape on the bottom flaps to make sure they would stay closed once I filled them.
I placed some candy and a little paint palette I found at Party City inside.

Quick and Easy Owl Wreath

Yesterday I shared all the details of Miss S’ owl themed first birthday party and I shared a picture of the owl wreath I put on the door to greet guests. 
Today, I will show you how fast and easy it is to make!
 
It is seriously so easy! 
 Supplies: 
-Wreath Form
-Yarn
-Coffee Filters
-Tulle
-Ink pad
-Scissors
-Hot Glue Gun

Start by hot gluing the end of the yarn down and wrapping the wreath form with the yarn. 
Continue wrapping the yarn until the whole thing is covered. Make sure it is tight on the wreath so the form doesn’t show through the yarn.
Next, cut the tulle to the length that you want your wings to be. You will be tying this around the wreath so be sure to take that into account when determining the length. 
I just wrapped a piece and decided what I was happy with then cut it. Then cut more the same length.
 Tie the tulle around the wreath and knot it. I used 8 pieces of tulle per wing.
I wanted the wings a little fuller so I cut some tulle in shorter lengths than the first layer and tied them between the first layers. I used 6 shorter pieces.
Here are both wings complete.
For the eyes, take three coffee filters and cut them down so they all fit inside each other. 
I used ink on the edges to add a little color to the eye. 
Glue the pieces together and draw a black dot in the center for the pupil. 
I also crumpled up the eye to give it more texture
 Glue the eyes onto the wreath form.
I cut a triangle to use for the beak out of brown paper then just taped it to the back of the eyes.
That’s it!! 
For the party, I placed a chalkboard onto the owl by using a push pin on the back side to make it look like the owl was holding it.
It was a fun way to greet guests and get them ready for what they may find inside!

Miss S’ Owl Birthday Party Decorations

Yesterday I shared pictures of Miss S’ first birthday party
Today, I want to share with you all the details of the party itself. 
 I shared this yesterday but wanted to include it in this post as well. 
These are the invitations I created for her party. 
I wanted to do an owl theme. Thought it would be cute for a first birthday in November but wanted to keep the colors girly and bright.
Since we would be in TN for the party, I had to think about my decorations way in advance to make everything to mail to my parents house or take with us. Then I had to figure out where everything would go.
Guests were greeted with this owl wreath holding a chalkboard saying “Sadie is One!” on the front door.
My parents have this buffet by their front door so it was the perfect place to add a basket full of the favors and some pictures of Miss S.

I found the little chicken wire frame at JoAnns and painted it and added the small wooden owls to it.
Placed some pictures of Miss S on it with mini clothes pins and then a sign saying thanks for coming and asking guests to fill out their address on an envelope.
I created these little owl pillow boxes using my Silhouette Cameo and filled them full of candy for favors.
Looking into the party now… you may recognize the garland. 
I used the scallop garland I created for Miss P’s 2nd birthday and garland between all the arches in my parents house.
Here is a shot of the living room area. 
We removed all the furniture to make way for tables and chairs.
I then layered some colored table clothes with a clear table cloth with white dots on top.
I love how they came out! 
I placed different vases with branches in them on each table and put some little owls I created on them.
Here is how I decorated the mantle. 
I created this banner that says “Look Whooo’s One” and placed that on the mantle along with some tissue paper pom pom garland that I bought at Hobby Lobby and then also layered a string of the scallop garland with it as well. 
One the left side of the mantle I placed pictures of Miss S at different ages along with a little wooden owl I painted and a lantern ball.
In the center of the mantle, was the birthday stat board I created. 
I had my dad cut out the owl shape out of some thin wood and then I painted it white.
Once that paint was dry, I took gray paint and added the details of the owl onto the white before I applied all the information that I cut out of vinyl.
Then on the right side of the mantle I placed another picture, a glass owl I found at Hobby Lobby and another lantern ball.
My dad also cut the one out of wood and I painted this white as well and then used Stickles to add the dots to it in an ombre effect. 
Next to the mantle is another buffet that I placed a bunch of balloons on along with some other decorations. 
On the buffet, I placed another glass owl from Hobby Lobby, some more pictures and then the large chalkboard I created for Miss P’s birthday and decorated it with an owl theme. 
I also placed some props for the photo booth in a small white container that I found in the dollar section at Target.
Here is a closer look at the little owls I created to place in the branches on the tables.
We left my parents large tree in the living room and I decorated this wooden owl with paint and scrapbook paper and propped him up in the tree.
Now onto the kitchen area…
On the high chair, I placed another banner that I created on it and then just placed Miss S’ party hat on it as well.
Here is the dessert table. 
I again layered the table clothes and then used this table tutu my mom created for Miss P’s baby shower. I love that she still had it and it worked perfectly! 
Placed some cake stands, another vase with a branch, and another picture and it was set. 
This was my favorite part of the party!
I created the cake stands using wood slices and a base. You can find the wood slices at most craft stores, but I bought these at JoAnns. I bought the wood bases at Michaels. Just glued them together and they were ready to go! For the taller stand, I just placed two of the bases on top of each other.
 I placed another frame with a picture of Miss S on the table with a frame with a design I created to match the invitations. Then just put some painted wood owls near them as well.
Here is a closer look at the birthday print I created for the cake table.
And now here is the dessert table with Miss S’adorable smash cake and cupcakes. 
A family friend made the cupcakes and cake and they turned out so great! 
I chose to do chocolate and vanilla cupcakes and then some of the cupcakes had flowers on top and the others had an owl with a branch on them.
I just ADORE this smash cake! I am so excited how it turned out and it was pretty darn tasty as well! 
The table was so fun and colorful once the cakes were on it! 
I designed some water bottle covers to coordinate with the invitations as well. 
Here is a better shot of the water bottle covers. 
 Here is a shot of the living room from the kitchen.
And to round out the decorations, is the kitchen.
I just placed a polka dot table cloth on the island and another vase with the owls.
All the food was placed on the island, buffet style.
Forgot to take a picture with the food but we served BBQ, potato salad, pasta salad, and fruit salad.
Then for the drinks, which I also forgot to take a picture of, I served the water bottles, made some sweet tea and then some strawberry lemonade. I used my mason jars with lids and straws for the cups.
And that’s it! 
I am pretty excited with how it all turned out since I was trying to plan everything from CO! 
Stay tuned for a couple fun tutorials of items I created for the party.

Miss S is 1!!

I can’t believe that my baby girl is 1 years old! 
 This year has flown by! I feel like it was only a few months ago, that I woke up feeling contractions and gave birth to her less than 2 hours later! (If you missed her wild birth story, you can check it out on her introduction post.)
We had a great day celebrating Miss S in TN with family and friends. 
This post is just a rundown of the party and tomorrow I will share her party decorations. 
 Here is the invitation I designed for the occasion. 
I wanted to go with an owl theme since I thought it would be fun for a November birthday, but then wanted it to fun, girly colors.
All the party decor went with this color scheme.
We started the party by greeting all the guests.
Everyone was so excited to finally meet Miss S! 
We then had some food… BBQ, potato salad, pasta salad, and fruit salad- all homemade.

After we ate, we decided to open gifts before doing cake.
She wasn’t too sure about what to do with presents but she loved seeing all her toys, books, and clothes. 
Speaking of clothes- I forgot to take a picture of her in the adorable dress my mom made for her to wear. You can see it best in these pictures. 
Then it was time for cake! 
Her smash cake was this adorable owl cake and I thought she would be ALL about eating it. 
NOPE!!! She is probably the cleanest one year out there after eating that cake. 
She barely ate any of it and didn’t even really smash it. I tried to get her to eat it. Miss P tried to get her to eat it. In fact, I think all the grandparents did too, but she just didn’t want it. 
Maybe she thought it was too cute to mess up! lol
 She was a happy little girl the whole time.
Here she is wearing the party hat I created for her and giggling at her Aunt Rissa.
Of course, it was so fabulous seeing all my friends that came to meet and celebrate Miss S. 
It was also great meeting all my friends new babies as well! 
Her party was a lot of fun! 
Everyone just loved meeting Miss S! 
I think she was a little overwhelmed at first but she was having a good time too!
Tomorrow, I will be back with all the details of the party itself!
