Disneyland Savings Tin

It's been 6 months since our last visit to The Happiest Place on Earth & I'm missing Disneyland!

I covered a dollar store piggy bank with cute scrapbook paper & added ribbon on the top & bottom edges with my glue gun. I finished off with some simple embellishments.

Now I can add in spare change and cash to add towards our spending money next time we go back!

My Son's 8th Birthday Party- Star Wars Theme

My son turned 8 in December and had a Star Wars themed birthday!



I edited a photo from our trip to Disneyland the month before...




I bought a book of posters from the new movie and used some to make banners...





My son enjoyed setting up his Star Wars toys on the tables for decoration...





Another banner I made with clothespins, string, and posters from the new movie. And he had some other posters he wanted to add from other Star Wars series...



At each place at the table, there was a mask for the kids to wear that I bought at the party store.

My daughter...



My son...



Lots of pictures of the food...




My son made the sign and the box for his party in the top left photo. It's cute how my kids enjoy helping me with party preparations as they are getting older!








We did one party for his school friends where they had more snacky things for food.

For the party with extended family, we had pizza for lunch, that's when I had the selection of pop out...




"Jedi Juice" out at the party for extended family...



I made labels for the pizza that we had at the party with extended family. It's nice that people can just read what each type is instead of having to ask!






Cupcakes!



Cupcakes at his other party! I also made cupcakes for him to take to school on his birthday. I was quickly sick of baking and decorating cupcakes!




Treat bags that we had for his guests at his friend party...



I sure had fun doing the Star Wars themed parties for my son as he is obsessed with Star Wars!

DIY Painted Ikea Kids Table

For my daughter's 2nd birthday, I made-over an Ikea table for her, as she loves tea parties.


I got this small table that came with 2 chairs (price is in Canadian Dollars).



I bought a set of Martha Stewart paint at Michael's that had some pretty colours I loved and painted it all...



*Note: I already had one chair from this set in case you are wondering how I managed to get 3 chairs!



I chose yellow for the table, pink for one daughter, purple for my other daughter, and blue for my son so they each have a chair, just for them!


I added on cute letting stickers onto the back of each chair & put some Mod Podge over to keep them from peeling off. I bought some flower vinyl stickers from the dollar store to add onto the top.


She loved it when I gave it to her on her birthday and my kids use it each and every day!

My Daughter's 2nd Birthday Party- Sofia the First Theme

When my daughter turned 2 we had a Sofia the First themed party to celebrate!




Lots of girly pink & purple decorations...





I made this doily and tiara banner for the front entry closet...



I added photos of her onto doilies for a personal touch to enjoy some of her cute photos...







We fed our extended family pizza, veggies & dip, and chips for lunch...





I made labels on my computer and printed them on cardstock to display what each type of pizza was...




For drinks, we had soda pop, bottles of water, and punch in my drink dispensers to choose from...





The dessert table...









My sweet birthday girl enjoyed her party!



I also made up 3 dozen marshmallow pops for the party and I even made the stands. And I forgot to put them out for the party- I was so mad that I forgot them in my pantry!




For the treat bags for the cousins we gave: heart-shaped sidewalk chalk, Sofia treat containers with gum inside, ring pops, rockets, candy bracelets, Sofia stickers, lollipops, Sofia blow-outs, Sofia necklaces, and Sofia bracelets!



I had lots of fun doing this princess-y, girly party for my little girl!
