Back 2 School

It’s that time of the year where you see shinny yellow buses, pointy pencils, and new back packs. That’s right it is back to school time.

I think I have everything I need to head back to school.

Now I just need to figure out how to use this computer when I don’t have thumbs. 

Are you excited school is starting again?

Thoughtless Thursday: Party Decorations

What would a party be without decorations and let me tell you, my mom went all out!

We started with a color scheme (red, blue, green and orange) and went from there. 

I already had the “Spencer” banner, which is great to be able to reuse props. A little DIY project that involved using a Cricut machine and a wonderful “Happy Blogiversary” banner was born.
Next, you have to be dressed for the occasion. Again, following the color scheme, I found this handsome bow tie at Target and this party hat on Etsy

What does every great dog party need, that’s right, a fire hydrant. Even though it is made out of paper, it still adds that extra something. 

My favorite is this DIY fabric banner. My mom went to our local fabric store and picked out a yard of five different fabrics, one pattern and solid colors. Can you guess which colors???

Once home we cut the fabric into one inch wide by twelve inches long strips. We did this until we ran out of fabric. Then we tired the fabric onto a long piece of twine in a pattern. We ended up making two banners, each about four feet long.

 

Finally, every good party needs balloons. The best part was using a bottle of peanut butter as the weight of the balloons.

I would love to hear from you, what is your favorite decoration, either from my party or at your own parties?
There will only be one winner announced for this Blogiversary giveaway. The winner will be randomly chosen by Rafflecopter. The winner will be contacted via email. This giveaway is open for US residents only who are 18 years of ago or older. All prizes have been donated no other compensation was given for any reviews, publicity, or write ups.
