1 comment:
Eighth Annual?! What? Amazing...
This year's invitation features a colored pencil illustration created by my sweet and creative sister, Elizabeth Kielman. A whimsical, fun, design was just the thing I needed to get in the mood for this year's party. I'm crossing my fingers for a cool front and am looking forward to an evening of fun with friends and family.

Owl Bean Bag {Free Pattern}

These owl bean bags were perfect for my friend's Owl Theme Birthday Party. I helped her make them and it was such a fun, easy project I thought I'd share a free pattern here on the blog for others to use.
I've create a two page PDF file with a basic pattern and very simple instructions. Click on the link below. Enjoy!

Today Is...

During my PreK curriculum search I came across many ideas for teaching the concept of days, months, years and seasons to pre-schoolers. Not wanting to invest too much money in something that would be used just a short period of time I created this poster and had the blank "canvas" printed at a local print shop and then printed the various pieces, laminated them and added velcro dots. I thought this might be useful to others and so I'm sharing my files here. This design caters to my daughter, Marin, thus primarily pink design (sorry boys).

Owl Party

No comments:
My friend Darci threw her girls an adorable owl theme birthday party last weekend. Here are photos from the big day.
 These unique owl smores were an original creation of Amy from Living Locurto. Tasty and cute, this theme appropriate spin on an cool weather treat, was a big hit.
Darci pulled inspiration and colors from these fabrics which were used to created banners, owl bean bags and we even used the fabric to line various dishes. The Brown Owl Fabric and Fruit Trees in Cream are both Timeless Treasures fabric designed by Alice Kennedy. The Tangerine-Full moon polka dot fabric is an Amy Butler design.
Oh and in addition to cupcakes and owl smores Darci made these tasty acorn cookies. Dandelions and Lace has a helpful tutorial for making your own. The owl bean bags were used as decoration and as part of a bean bag toss game. Kids were given chances to toss these owls into holes cut from a large wooden tree (created by Darci's husband). A fun filled activity for the kids.
No opportunity for adding an owl detail was missed. Even these drinking bottles were tagged with an owl label. The orange and white paper straws and paper flags were fun and matched the theme.
Enlisting the help of her 3 year old, Darci created these owl party favors. Made from butcher paper, shaped as owls, filled with trail mix and sewn shut with a sewing machine. A sweet, hand made touch and a great way to include the birthday girl in saying thank you to her friends.
A super cute candle moment from the evening.
No party is complete without an owl pinata. A special request by the birthday girl, who wasn't quite sure if she wanted to hit the owl once it came time for the big moment.
Hand colored owl bags were used to collect "owl guts" from the pinata.
A wonderful, party filled with fun, family and fine feathered friends.
