Having a kid makes me very nostalgic. I love watching the older Disney movies with my daughter that I loved when I was a kid. I also love all of the music. My daughter Keira could do without me singing along to all of the songs but I can’t help it! A dream is a wish your heart makes is my favorite song from Cinderella. The words still ring true as an adult. Adults don’t listen to their dreams and hearts as much as children. I definitely have been working on recapturing some of myself and childlike spirit. My daughter has brought that out in me a lot and it really is the best to re-experience some of the joys of childhood through your child. OK enough of the cheesiness, I told you I get nostalgic! This Cinderella printable is great for a bedroom decoration or a Cinderella party. Maybe next to the pretty Cinderella slipper cupcakes ;), if you haven’t seen them yet check them out so much sparkly goodness! I put one of these printables in my room and in my daughters room. I have not seen the new Cinderella movie but it is on my list to see. I absolutely love the dress with all the butterflies, my daughter got a new Cinderella dress. This is her third Cinderella dress that is how much she loves the character. The first Halloween that Keira got to choose her own costume she dressed up as Cinderella.

My brunch week on the blog is coming to an end :(. If you missed my other brunch posts you can see my bacon flowers here http://valeventgal.com/2015/08/bacon-flowers/ and bacon and eggs banner here http://valeventgal.com/2015/08/bacon-eggs-banner/. I just had to make some brunch printables to go with the brunch fun. I would not survive without coffee! I really do not know how some people just don’t drink coffee. That is why I needed the but first, coffee printable. I love a good coffee bar and I will give you a few ideas of what you need for the ultimate brunch coffee bar! I also am a fan of mimosas. I love mimosas because they always make brunch feel like a celebration! My mimosa me printable is perfect for a mimosa bar. In the morning there aren’t a lot of words in my vocabulary so mimosa me should get the job done! I really like any kind of bar taco bar, mimosa bar, coffee bar,waffle bar, ice cream bar and bar bar. Bars are the best for parties because you can set them up to look all pretty and people get to choose the way they like their food and drinks. It can be hard to cater to everyone’s taste when you are hosting a party. I say let them decide how they want things.
When I was a kid I basically thought I was a mermaid. I loved to swim and would put a ring around my feet to keep them together like a mermaid tail. Anyone else do this? When you live in Arizona as a kid you are basically a mermaid living in the water half the year. It is disappointing when you grow up and realize you will never actually be a mermaid. Thanks mom and dad, you told me I could grow up to be anything I wanted to be! While I have come to terms with the fact that I will never be a mermaid I have not given up on sparkles and mermaid party fun! This weeks theme is mermaids! I am bringing the mermaid party fun starting with these adorable underwater mermaid party favors with printable gift tags. I am a little late starting this week since my daughter just started school again and I am getting back in a routine. School seems to start earlier every year. I promise I will get better in the coming weeks, I have some fun things planned! Yes, I am a creative type and sticking to a schedule is tricky when you are on mermaid time(I’m guessing mermaids are on a relaxed schedule). These mermaid magic jars are so easy to make and are a perfect mermaid party favor! Kind of like a snow globe but with glitter and under the sea creatures.
I love pirate parties it is a classic theme that never goes out of style. When I was a kid my dad built a pirate ship playground in the backyard. How cool is that?! We would dress up like pirates and play pretend pirates all the time. That is why pirates have a special place in my heart. Acting like a pirate is so much fun and having a pirate party is fun too! I made these pirate party diys with foam paper. Then kids can have sword fights without anyone getting hurt! Really easy to make and fun for parties or just pretending to be a pirate aaarrggh.
If you are not a Game of Thrones fan this post is not for you but to my fellow fans welcome! I’m obviously very excited for the Game of Thrones premiere this week. I might need to get HBO Go just to watch this show. That is how much I love it! I may or may not be dressed as the queen of dragons while watching. I also need to go back and binge watch all of last season before I start this one. With so many characters it is hard to remember where everyone was at when it ended last season. Plus my memory is about as good as a goldfish. I am just assuming goldfish don’t have a long term memory but I could be wrong.
‘Tis the season for holiday parties! I usually like to bring a bottle of wine to holiday parties if I am not bringing food. It’s always a safe bet, since most people like wine. Well at least most people I know. If you want to spice up your bottle of wine I have these free printable holiday drink tags just for you! All you need is a little ribbon and a hole puncher. These drink tags can work for beer too or even hot chocolate! I have Christmas and Hanukkah ones depending on the occasion you are celebrating. You could use both if you celebrate Christmukkah, like we do in my house. The drink tags are perfect for gifts or to display on all of your wine or beer bottles at your holiday party!
