Hey guys! Long time no blog. Maybe in 2015 I will have more than 3 posts in 1 year 🙂 A lot has changed with my Christmas décor this year vs. last year, but one thing that has not changed is my love for the color … Continue reading
Saturday we celebrated Avery’s 4th birthday with family and friends. This year when I asked him what theme he wanted for his party, I was expecting some Disney character or sports theme like he requested in the past. So, when Avery shouted, “I want a Donut Birthday Party!!”, I was excited and confused but not that surprised either. I know that makes no sense, right? It wasn’t what I expected him to choose since it was sort of out of the box, but the kid LOVES donuts and I have to admit, I was thinking to myself, “this could be fun for me to plan!” We had the party at 11am and I got away with providing just donuts, fruit, milk & coffee as opposed to the entire spread of food and cake/cupcakes like his first 3 parties. As much as I like doing the food part I have to say it was SO AWESOME not having to come up with a meal and do food prep for 35 people! We ordered 7 dozen donuts from Festival Foods and let Taste of Scandinavia do all the work! Well…other than those few donuts that I added blue drizzle to 😉 Here is details of the party in photos. Enjoy!
If you haven’t noticed by now, my FAVORITE color is blue–aqua, turquoise, teal, you name it I love it. I will find a way to sneak it into any holiday. So if you didn’t know that, you know now. With that being said, you can now prepare yourself for my untraditional Christmas decorations. You may notice some of Avery’s favorite color, purple.
Our weekend off was rainy and cold so we spend our time indoors. Kind of a bummer, but we enjoyed time with family on Friday evening and brought Avery to the movies on Saturday. We will have to reschedule our trip to the apple orchard for a non-rainy day! Being stuck inside allowed for some autumn decorating and craft projects. I love to have fall scented candles lit in the house this time of year. There’s something about the smell of pumpkin spice!
Last night I helped Avery do a craft. It was a win win situation because he had fun fingerprinting with different colors and I got a new seasonal canvas!
