Free And Easy Holiday Decorations

 Did you know that you can use found objects to upgrade your Holiday decor? You can create a warm, inviting atmosphere for your next Holiday party without spending anything, and use the money you save to lock down one of our catering packages.

Once you've built up a larger collection of paint chips, transform them into a wreath full of brilliant blooms. To create the flowers: Cut the end of the chip at a 45-degree angle with scissors, then twist around until a conical form takes shape. To keep it from unraveling, add a generous bead of hot glue to the back where the two edges of the paint chip meet.

Everyone can read his or her own completed story to the group, or they can trade and read a different child’s. Have a shy bunch? A parent can read all of them aloud.

Birthday Party Planning For Busy Moms

 When you are a working mom, planning a fantastic birthday party can seem like an impossible feat, given that there are only twenty four hours in a day. We want to help lighten your load with one of our fun, delicious kid's catering packages. Here are some other tips on how to make your planning easier:

The invites are always a special touch for me -- I usually find an example I like and customize the invite to suit. Sometimes, there is a template included in a themed printable pack -- copy and paste, insert text, add a cute photo of your little one and voila! You have unique and memorable invitations to send with your child to school. I have also learned from experience that it often pays to invite the whole class. If you are having a party, I say do it! The marginal cost of a few more kids is not significant, and you will help your child learn to build and grow their relationships by including all their friends and getting to know the parents.

Baby Shower Etiquette

 Do you have a loved one who is expecting an addition to their family in the near future? Do you feel as though you should host the baby shower, but have no idea where to start? Check out our extensive selection of catering packages after reading this advice piece about baby shower etiquette.

  • Can immediate family members host a baby shower?
    Traditionally, a family member should not host a shower for a daughter, sister or other close relative. However, when good friends don't offer to step in, an immediate member of the family can get by with hosting a small (or large) gathering, in honor of the mother, and to celebrate the upcoming birth.
