Uncategorized

Sons 3rd birthday party was a success!!!! Cant believe how awesome in turned out! All decor was handmade. I was on a tight budget this year so I made sure to make it extra awesome with the limited resources.

All printables were found online at Pinterest.com for free. Just search, “free superhero printables.”

Background poster bought at Walmart for $5.

Piñata was bought at a local party warehouse. I added a some work to it.

Toys were provided from my sons toy collection

Superhero costumes from Party City (sons aunt and uncle dressed up)

I always buy bulk candy when it goes on sale. Most of the candy was bought after this past Easter for $.25 each bag at Aldi.  AWESOME!!!!

All buildings and other decor was drawn, cut, and spray painted as well as gift wrapped by me.

All the decor came out to about $120!!!

Feel free to get inspired! =)

Safari Themed Shower

The letters for all my handmade decor I bought from Michael’s and the fringe paper and vases as well as tissue paper from the Dollar Tree. The baby blocks are actually gift boxes covered in fabric which I found at Wal-Mart. It was not easy finding a base for these blocks, I looked online and in many stores and decided to go with the gift boxes and they worked wonderfully.

All candy, straws, and bowls were ordered from Orientaltrading.com

I love this elephant and how cute this came out. I painted the letters and crate and hot glued this cute chubby elephant I found at Big Lots for $3. Under all the fringe is a random bow I had at home to hold everything together.

The outside of the house went perfectly with the theme. Baby Brandon was celebrated wonderfully in the jungles of Miami.

Easter Baskets

DIY

IMG_0038_Fotor

A bit too late but, hope everyone had a fantastic Easter Sunday with family and friends… thats all it is about… appreciating our loved ones everyday.

These Easter baskets belong to my son and godson…. Not much DIY here but the ribbon, bows, and personification.

I bought the standard baskets at Target, looked in my craft office and used some left over ribbon to personalize the baskets. I had cardboard paper letters and hot glued those one. My sons is on the ribbon and I added my godsons to the bow.

There’s always a way to make a gift unique with simple touches. Both gifts were budget friendly, I always make sure that for Easter I get the kids 1-2 small toys and the rest is things they need or books. And of course the sweets!
