This week (April 8 – 14) one of my favorite children’s clothing brands, Polarn O Pyret, is challenging everyone to go outside and play. The goal is to get families out enjoying the outdoors no matte the weather. They call it Every Day a Play Day week and they’re logging the collective hours of play so join in! Oh, and did I mention that they’re giving away giftcards every day too? Here’s how it works:
Photo booths have practically become a party essential. While you can easily just snap shots of your guests in front of a blank wall, it’s more fun to have a backdrop. This one I made from candy buttons is as easy as they come and would be perfect for a polka dot or colorful party. Plus, it will only take you about 10 minutes.
I think there’s a common misconception that the moment a child joins a family, stylish interior living goes downhill. Their toys and messes take over the house and there’s no way you’re going to own anything nice because they’ll surely destroy it. But I love parents who turn that notion on its head and still have beautiful homes that work with the children, not against them. I love when the homes looked lived and loved in, where there’s evidence that children live there. So this home tour that was featured in a recent Land of Nod catalog caught my eye. It’s the home of Trina (the lady behind La La Lovely), her husband and four kids and it’s amazing. See for yourself.
