Halloween Classroom “Treats”

Halloween Treats for Kids

Every Halloween my kids always ask to bring “treats” for their class, but the complication is that they often can’t bring in food.  (Or at least need to bring in peanut-free candy).  So a few years back, I came up with these personalized printable tags that you can DIY print and insert a few glow sticks in them.  They work perfectly, and make kids (and adults + teachers) happy.

Every October in our house, I sit down with my kiddos and we make them together for all their classmates.  It’s such a great craft for kids to do with a parent.  You can find the printable glow stick tags here which includes super simple instructions.  Easy peasy. And have I mentioned, that they also make GREAT favors for Halloween birthday parties?!

The BIG ONE

It was our little one’s first birthday that started it all… my love for great design, perfectly curated parties, and fun and bold birthday celebrations!  And after over six years of being in business, our “Big ONE” first birthday party collection has remained the bestseller.  Bold polka dots, fun stripes, and chic argyle all in charcoal, bright blue, baby blue and lime green… what more can any little boy need for his big day?  Those have remained my most favorite color combinations for boys.  And even better?  They are super easy colors and patterns to match.

Sparkle & Shine… It’s BIRTHDAY Time!

There are a bunch of new designs up in the shop this week.  As the kids have gotten back to school and life has settled down a bit, I’ve gotten a few extra minutes to sit down and list some previously custom-designed invitations from this past summer back into the shop.  And this is one of my favorite.  I mean, how cute is this?! You don’t get a brighter, bolder and cheerier party theme that this gold and rainbow invitation.  And so easy + fun to coordinate for your little girl’s big day!

How to: Personalized Water Bottle Labels

A quick + easy decoration that I love to dress up any occasion are personalized water bottle labels.  They’re super easy and lend a really great, stylish touch to your event. So here we go:

  1. Purchase your printable water bottle label file.  We have a TON to choose from in our shop for all occasions, and you can find them included in every party  package kit.  (Because we never have a party without them)!
  2. Print either on white card stock or on sticky label paper.  (I find sticky label paper much easier to work with and recommend Avery full sheet labels).  For full sheet labels, the entire page is a giant sticker so you will have to trim out your labels, BUT you won’t have to worry about lining up any margins AND you can use the labels for lots of other items.
  3. Trim out the labels.  In our shop, the files are formatted with four labels per page.
  4. Rip the original label off your water bottles (you don’t have to be very thorough).
  5. Stick the new labels right where the originals were.
  6. While you can certainly refrigerate the water bottles, I recommend against putting them directly on ice as the ink may run depending on your ink and paper choice.

Easy Peasy!

HOW to: make cupcake toppers (+ a free printable)

flamingo toppers - IG

Printable cupcake toppers are a super easy + fast decoration that work great for any occassion!  Did I mention they are super easy?  Like super easy!  Yep.  And with just a few quick tips and a couple extra minutes to spare, you can have the most adorable cupcakes decorating any dessert table.  So let’s break it down step-by-step for the not-so-crafty bunch:

  1. Get your printable cupcake topper file.  You can purchase already personalized ones, or you can use our FREE download to make some super chic flamingo toppers as shown above.
  2. Print the file from any color printer on heavy duty white card stock.
  3. Once printed, trim off the excess white borders and use a 2 inch round punch to cut the circles.  (I especially like this punch).  Don’t have a punch?  Don’t worry, you can always trim out the circles with scissors, or even easier, trim them out as squares.  (That’s why all our printable cupcake toppers are formatted as a circle inside of a square, so you can take the easy way out!).
  4. Once you have the circles (or squares) punched out, you’ll want to adhere them to lollipop sticks.  Make sure to purchase the short lollipop sticks (and not the super long ones).  You can usually find these in the baking aisle of any craft store. I like to glue gun the sticks on to the back, but you can also use a small round white label if you don’t want to see the glue.
  5. And viola!  Stick those suckers in the cupcakes.  And that’s it.. you’re done!
