My son loves hitting golf balls, and he loves collecting as many tees as he can possibly stuff into his golf bag.  I wanted to come up with an idea for the Valentine’s Day card exchange in his class to go along with things that he likes. Golf was an easy choice~ and I hope this idea will help make your Valentine’s Day card giving lots of fun!  You simply need golf tees, gumballs, and these cute tags from Anders Ruff to make it a perfect way to let friends know that they are TEE-RIFIC!

 These Valentine’s Day goodies are right on par!  They are perfect for a small but unique way of saying, “I’m glad we’re friends!”…

I love using colorful tees to add a little color.  You could also use white tees and colored gumballs if you prefer.  Also, remember to use the smaller gumball size if you are gifting younger children.

These are easy to package!  Using a cellophane bag, add a little bit of paper “grass”…add a tee and a gumball, and top with a cute tag from Anders Ruff Custom Designs!

I used mini clothes pins that I found at Michael’s to add the tag, but you can also punch a hole in the tag and tie it to the bag using ribbon.

If you would like for the gumball/golfball to stay in place, secure it to the tee with a dot of white icing.

Perfect for girls or boys!  Also, if your child’s school has a no candy policy, you can use real golf balls!

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! 




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!



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!”. 


What began as a simple gesture to introduce my daughter to a wonderful book series has become a special evening ritual for us- reading Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House books!  I must admit, I didn’t realize quite how interesting these books would be to her, but she cannot wait to read all nine in the series.  It was only fitting that her birthday party focus around Little House on the Prairie!  Together, we had a ball planning all of the details of her party that related to the books in some way.  At Camille’s request, we focused on some of her favorite parts of the stories… prairie flowers, covered wagons, tee pees, the colors in the drawings of the books,  and “pretty”…because “Ma” liked things to be pretty!
