Easy DIY Paper Palm Fronds

| Uncategorized

This is my end of summer blog celebration with some tropical fun! I made some easy diy paper palm fronds for my daughters party and I wanted to show just how easy they are to make. You can’t have a tropical party without some palm fronds. You could decorate a whole party with a bunch of these on banners, table decor, and with balloons. Add some pineapples too and you are good to go. They can be in any colors to matching party colors. I only made one size but make them in a variety of sizes to give it more dimension as well. I know fall is coming but who doesn’t want to stay warm and tropical with some tropical celebrations. They are probably needed more in winter. I live by the beach so tropical parties are always an option! read more

DIY Cinnamon Roll Bouquet

A Sweet Bouquet With Cinnamon Rolls

Some bouquets are sweeter than others. This sweet diy cinnamon roll bouquet is easy to make and a fun gift to give friends. You can make homemade cinnamon rolls or a package. I went the easy route with a tube of rolls. Add colorful sprinkles to brighten them up more and put them on bamboo skewers to make a bouquet. I love how this bouquet turned out and seriously who doesn’t prefer a bouquet that you can eat?! Edible bouquets are becoming more and more popular because birthdays are a time to splurge on your favorite treats. Cinnamon rolls also go great with coffee so making it in a coffee mug is a perfect fit. I just used a large plain white mug with colorful tissue paper. You could also decorate a mug to give as part of the gift or get one with a funny saying on it. Lets get these cinnamon rolls started! read more

Dollar Store Floating Tray

| Uncategorized

I’m going to keep this post short and sweet just like the tutorial for the post. I made this floating tray with dollar store and dollar section materials. I have to tell you this isn’t 100% an original idea because I saw something similar. However, this is a much easier way to make it. I saw a tray that was made with pool floats and it included a lot of cutting and gluing to make the finished product. I don’t know about you but when I’m hanging by the pool I want to be lazy and relax. That is why I made this simple dollar store floating tray. It includes just a simple round tray and round float. If you cant find the round float at the dollar store check the grocery store for just a simple small float. read more

Firework Balloons

I’m going to keep this post short and sweet because I’m moving this week and tired. Pardon any grammar mistakes. I also started this project one way and ended it another so I didn’t get pictures of the process for what worked.Originally I was going to use tissue paper for the firework part but it didn’t quite stay on right. In the end I used glitter glue to draw on little fireworks and I love how easy it was.

What you need to make them:

Tissue Paper Fireworks

| Uncategorized

Who doesn’t love fireworks! Ok dogs usually don’t and sometimes firework shows are just too crowded. However, once those beautiful shining fireworks start it is all worth it. That is one of the best parts of the Fourth of July and I wanted to make fireworks fun for kids too. Not with anything flammable because kids and fire do not mix! I’m talking about the squishy fun tissue paper kind. Kids can throw them all around and make their own firework show. They are also super cute for a decoration at parties! So lets bring on the summer and the Fourth of July with some fun fireworks! read more

Flamingo Treats

| Uncategorized

These flamingos are almost too cute to eat but they are edible! I made some cute cupcake and donut flamingos that are super simple to make with printable flamingo heads to add as toppers then pipe cleaners for the legs. They are tall but they have to stand tall like a flamingo to be a true flamingo treat. This is another one that I made a video for hopefully the video will help show you how easy they are to make. I also have some easy instructions for the bodies.

All you need are cupcakes or donuts. I have to say I prefer the donuts with the candy melts but with frosting piping the cupcakes would look adorable! read more

Graduation Party Games

| Uncategorized

Graduation Games Penny Game

Graduation is such an exciting time and reason to celebrate! I remember how excited I was to graduate and move on to the next exciting stage of my life. I have some fun graduation party game ideas for both high school and college graduation parties. You don’t need anything too complicated or cheesy to have some fun at graduation. You can pick a couple games you like from the ideas I have that fit your crowd.

  • Pennies. Bounce or throw a penny into a jar.
  • Twister. Adults playing Twister is always fun!
  • Yard games. Corn Hole and Giant Jenga are always a hit.
  • DIY Yard Dice. Make large dice from large square boxes painted white if you want with dots drawn on with a sharpie.
  • All about the grad game. Some one can ask the graduate questions about themselves like who was their favorite teacher, least favorite teacher, favorite spot at school, where they want to travel to, and what they wanted to beĀ as a kid when they grew up. Then everyone has to answer these questions to guess what the graduate would say, whoever gets the most right wins.
  • Bed sheet volleyball. Use a bouncy ball, balloons, or an actually volleyball to play volley ball with a bed sheet as the net.
  • Paper airplanes you are going places game. People have to make paper airplanes and fly them to see who gets them to travel the farthest.
  • College essentials scavenger hunt! Go around to neighbors to find some of the essentials for college such as ramen, mac & cheese, crackers, and other college foods. You can get creative with funny items to find too.
  • Pizza eating contest! Pizza is a big part of the college experience. See who can eat a slice or two of pizza the fastest.
  • Pizza money game. Put money in a jar including dollars, quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies, then count how much it is. People have to guess how much it is. The winner gets to keep the money.
  • Glow stick hide and seek. Nighttime hide and seek with each person getting a glow stick and hiding outdoors. You are never too old for hide and seek!
  • Funny photo booth! Big sunglasses, boas, and fun stuff to take pictures with. It is not a game but still a fun activity and easy to put together.
  • College or after college advice. This can be funny like a don’t do what I did with funny or embarrassing stories from guests.
  • Kick school goodbye! Soccer with a fun bouncy ball. You can write subjects in school to kick.
