If you read my blog, you may remember a few posts I did some years back about parties that left big impressions on me. One was about a Party with Heart and the second was A Party with Vision. In the latter post, I commented on how one of the most rewarding aspects of owning your own business is having awesome clients. The other side of the coin, however is that having your own business means you also have employees.
Okay - first thing that I must admit...I love the name of Jen Hadfield's blog - Tatertots and Jello! If you are a mom, or anyone who at some point has to feed a child on a regular basis, chances are tater tots and jello have served as a main staple for at least one meal.
Parents can be amazing.
A good parent is there to listen, guide, instruct, laugh, cry, and offer unconditional love. The way a parent shows their love is many faceted: it can be a funny card in the mail with a $20.00 bill for “something fun”, an unexpected car wash after a weekend visit (my Deed is notorious for this sneaky little trick), or having all of your clothes cleaned, mended and pressed.
My husband Scott and I refer to these as “the silent things” that people who love each other do for each other. Something that often goes unnoticed, but makes a huge impact
What is it about cereal that is so addicting? I'm not sure if it's just me, but whenever there is a box of cereal in our house, I end up eating it in like 2 days. I do this thing where I fill my bowl, put in my milk, and then have to keep going back to the box to fill and refill until all the milk has been used up. Needless to say, I don't buy cereal often.
Recently, I was asked by one of our large (and favorite) Event Planning Companies in SF to design a craft for an event at a Brazilian restaurant. Given the restaurant we wanted to create something that reflected Brazilian culture. It need to be fun, festive and colorful - a sort of “Carnival” feel. Our budget was slightly limited so I turned to my beloved Dollar Tree for inspiration. That’s where I spied these inexpensive “tiaras”, basically a foil headband with a cardboard back.
