One of my favorite evenings in December, is when all the family gathers together to trim the tree. We play Christmas music, or watch our favorite Christmas movie, drink hot chocolate, and we usually try out some new holiday recipe in the kitchen. Beginning traditions, like an Advent calendar, and starting those Christmas cards, make it a great family night, creating memories!
Hosting Thanksgiving this year? I am making my grandma’s cherry pie, and bringing a bit of nature inside. Using leaves from your yard for place settings, and garland, is such a great idea! I like keeping the decor simple, so I can focus on the turkey!
Make Thanksgiving dinner fun for the kids this year with bright, colorful decorations. Keep them entertained with their own turkey (or chicken) to “carve”, and paper feathers they can decorate and hang before the meal begins!
I love the classic orange and black for Halloween, but how about an all white Halloween party this year? Bones, mummies, and ghosts can help do the trick! Give your guests the fun challenge of finding an all white costume to dress up in.
With the season turning cooler, it is the perfect time to throw a Red Riding Hood party. Throw all the party goodies into picnic baskets, and find a perfect little spot hidden in the trees. Any kid would love playing wolf with these masks, and the finger puppets are perfect party favors.
