My son has a love for everything soccer so when I suggested a swimming party at the local gym he said only if it’s a soccer party. The best part of this party was how easy it was! The cake was frosted like grass along with the cupcakes. That was my sons favorite part was his grass cake in the goal. In the past I will be the first one to say I may have gone a little crazy party planning. This year however was a very busy few months and everything was planned and finished in no time at all. No stress and it still has the little guy so excited. The guest tables were all covered in green table cloths with paper soccer balls.

The kids were so excited to have their very own New Years party two years ago. I did drop the ball and did not take very many photos of all of our actives. I put everything together the day before so with a little more planning it could be even more fun. The kids had a blast though and my kids who go to bed at 8 made it all the way to midnight with our hourly activity count down.
Have you ever used a paper lantern for a party and you cant get it to look full. This past November I pulled out some lanterns that I had used 2 years before but I could not keep them from collapsing. Just blow up a balloon of a matching color inside and it looks great!
I found the balloon a plus with this one cause I attached it to a balloon stick.
Last year I wanted to buy mini glass milk bottles for my sons birthday party. None of the local stores carried them at the time so my choices were buying online with crazy shipping or buying some bottled Starbucks Frappuccino at my local supermarket and remove the labels.
So its been well over a year and I still have the sitting around and was trying to figure out what to do with them. My kids love to drink hot coco out of them so I decided to make a mini hot coco bar in a box.
I just traced the carton on a sheet of 12×12 scrapbook paper and then glued it together. It only takes one sheet unless you want to use different patterns. I then added a circle on the top of the lids but spry painting them would work great as well. Then I added some scrape ribbons on the bottles. The last thing is to fill with items of your choice. I put candy canes, coco mix, peppermint marshmallows, and cookies inside mine.
So this was my little fall project last year. I am planning on spending sometime on pinterest tomorrow to look for something exciting to make for fall. Now that the kids are back to school I feel like getting crafty again.
While the crisp fall air and autumnal colors are still a few weeks away all I can think about is fall. I find myself searching pumpkin and apple recipes, Halloween costume ideas, and fall decorating ideas most nights.
I love fall foods and candies but candy corn is probably my least favorite. As soon as I saw the candy corn cones I instantly fell in love with them and several other projects that use them or was inspired by them. One of my favorite projects so far is from Thrify decor chick @ http://thriftydecorchick.blogspot.com/2011/09/candy-corn-love.html. Although I have only made one of the 3 projects today I might be making the others very soon. You should check hers out they do look a little different.
The original was made with a foam cone. I know it would have been easier and stronger but I didn’t have any and I did have sheet after sheet of poster board so thought I would give…
