As Thanksgiving Day approaches, I wanted to share some fantastic ideas with you from Katherine Marie Photography.  Take a look at these cute little gobblers- I think they would be adorable on the Thanksgiving table!  These are made using simple craft supplies including clothes pins covered with ribbon or paper.  I always love a darling little traced turkey hand!

How cute is this Turkey Coin Bank?  It is a great way to recycle a spice container and make a useful craft!  I LOVE IT!

Games like Turkey Bingo add a little fun and learning to the holiday…just be sure that the turkey feather colors aren’t all the same on each board!

This Turkey Roll game is my favorite!  Roll the dice, add, and look at the key to see what color M&M to add to make the feathers!  Use leftover Halloween candy for the feathers, and adapt math skills to make age-appropriate…

Peanut butter play dough is always fun (for those without allergies, of course!)- dressing up the dough balls like turkeys is sure to be a hit!  Gobble Gobble!

Edible Play-dough Turkeys  Fancy tooth pics+ Feathers + Preschool Peanut Butter Balls (Mix and chill 1 cup PB +  1 cup honey + 2 cups dry powdered milk)

The Turkey Farm is also a great way to combine math and crafts for the holiday.  Notice the Turkey Trivia- what a fun way to broaden your children’s knowledge!  The cupcakes are also an easy, fun, and kid-friendly way to celebrate being thankful!

Celebrating your birthday with a Mexican Fiesta is a sure way to have a great time!  My daughter and several of her friends had a ball with all of the bright colors and (hopefully) vivid memories of a beautiful party day full of fun!  Planning all of the party ideas and details was loads of fun- although we don’t claim to have everything authentically perfect- this is our take on a party that combines Mexican birthday party ideas with a young girl’s likes and wishes!  For instance, we know hedgehogs don’t hail from Mexico- but when she fell in love with a festive-looking hedgehog at a local shop, we decided the hedgehog would make a perfectly fun party favor!  So read on and enjoy- and hopefully you will find an idea or two that you can use for a Mexican-themed party or even a Cinco de Mayo celebration, too- and inspiration to incorporate ideas that make your party perfectly-suited for the birthday child! 


There is nothing like the bright colors and happy prints of Lilly Pulitzer to make every day feel like a party!  For my daughter’s 12th birthday party, she wanted to decorate cakes~ Lilly-style!  So, in order to decide how to mesh the two, I kept thinking “if Lilly had a cake shop instead of a juice stand”… I have to admit, this was one fun party to plan!  It is a blast to see where ideas go in the hands of a TWEEN!  Enjoy and remember, “…being happy never goes out of style!”. 




Any chance I get, I love to share what my friends at Anders Ruff Designs are doing!  Maureen and Adria are ALWAYS up to something creative!  And so, I bring you another fabulous party design and graphic design by Anders-Ruff!  They were kind enough to share their thoughts on what makes a wonderful Thanksgiving table.  Their eye for using natural elements and incorporating their fantastic paper designs makes the celebration warm and cozy!
