Flower Cookies for Mother’s Day or Any Day!

Hello Friends,

 I hope you are all doing well!  My blog has been on “pause” for  awhile mainly due to time contraints.  I am hoping to be back here a little more often and to bring you a few new things along the way.  My kids and I have been playing around with the idea of doing a video for you all.  I must admit, we can only improve from here!! We laugh at our first attempt, but you have to start somewhere…

 We make these marshmallow flowers every year in different versions.  I used to have my classes make these for their moms on Mother’s Day (we would invite the moms to a Mother’s Day Tea) when I taught school.  They have been a big hit for so many years, and so we thought we would start with something “tried and true” to bring you our first ever video.  Remember, we can only get better from here!! 🙂  It has been fun and funny to make the video- the kids love the bloopers at the end.  We hope you learn a little something that you can use- and we hope that your kids can learn from it, too!  We would love for it to be a video that they can follow along with and make something fun with minimal help from their parents.  Here goes…please watch our video below (and you can be our very first subscriber- we have 0!)…

CAMILLE’S FIESTA ~ MEXICAN THEME BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS

Celebrating your birthday with a Mexican Fiesta is a sure way to have a great time!  My daughter and several of her friends had a ball with all of the bright colors and (hopefully) vivid memories of a beautiful party day full of fun!  Planning all of the party ideas and details was loads of fun- although we don’t claim to have everything authentically perfect- this is our take on a party that combines Mexican birthday party ideas with a young girl’s likes and wishes!  For instance, we know hedgehogs don’t hail from Mexico- but when she fell in love with a festive-looking hedgehog at a local shop, we decided the hedgehog would make a perfectly fun party favor!  So read on and enjoy- and hopefully you will find an idea or two that you can use for a Mexican-themed party or even a Cinco de Mayo celebration, too- and inspiration to incorporate ideas that make your party perfectly-suited for the birthday child!
