Get Linky

Well, you caught me….

It’s past midnight and I was on my way to bed when I realized that I forgot to set up a post for today.  I’m tired and heading to bed but I didn’t want to leave ya’ll totally hanging.  So……

I decided I would leave it up to ya’ll today instead!

So, LINK UP PEOPLE! I would encourage you to focus on the seasonal parties that are coming our way, but today is a free-for-all.  You may link to any kind of party you would like!

(oh, and I’ll apologize in advance for anyone who submitted a Halloween/Harvest party to be featured.  Most likely I will never even open your email until after Thanksgiving….that’s how far behind I am.  Link up to them today! On that note…. those of you who have Christmas Parties to share….start sending them in now!)

***I had actually hit “publish post” and then decided I just couldn’t let you down…so here is an oldie but goodie post of mine from like two years ago for your viewing pleasure:


Thanksgiving Dinner…..Hosted by YOUR KIDS!

I suppose you COULD go as far as to have your kids fix the meal….tv dinners or something….but that’s not what I’m talking about.

Last year I decided to have my kids host thanksgiving dinner. Together we made invitations and sent them out to the family. We also worked together and made placemats, placecards, and napkin rings. The placemats and napkin rings were made with the intention of using them for as many years as they last.

I kept it very simple. I bought some heavy corduroy fabric and cut it into squares. Then the kids help glue on silk leaves and ribbon that I bought at the craft store.

Then we all worked together and made napkin rings. They were simple rings made of wire and beads. These should last for many years.

Of course you could go “fancy” and use nice plates and everything

But this is where naming your KIDS the host gives you an advantage…..
We used charger plates to keep it fancy looking, but on the charger plates we used paper plates. You can totally get away with that when kids are the hosts! And HELLO…clean up was a snap!

I’m excited to pull these items out and use them again this year. The kids were so proud last year and everybody just raved about the beautiful table.

I just wanted to encourage you to get your kids involved in hosting family events. It’s fun to watch them take ownership and to see the beaming smile on their faces when they get all the compliments.


Now….get linky!

Enjoy the parties!
