Our little white kitchen was my very first DIY project when I started blogging 1.5 years ago so I felt it was time to dress her up in some festive holiday spirit this week and highlight her again! For a full tutorial on our DIY upgraded all white play kitchen with links, you can find it here

The cooking utensil's hanging on display can be found here which I was able to get on sale for super cheap during Ikea's friends and family sale! (Day of Thanksgiving! So fingers crossed they do it again this year)  The felt veggies can be found here and our pots and pans here. I also put together some more play food favorites of ours! As well a few items I'm getting Abby + Emma for Christmas this year because... Tis the season for our mini cooks to stay busy while we cozy up with warm coffee (reheated 3x) in our favorite festive holiday mug! ; )

We are hosting Thanksgiving for the fist time this year! Love having family hang out around the island as the smells change and complex as the day goes on! Especially that herb stuffing. ; ) So here's our modern + classic Thanksgiving table scape that we will be doing this year, along with all links to everything.

Two scoops please! With extra sprinkles! Both Abby and Emma's costumes were made in 24 hours (including two coats of spray paint for Abbys rain boots/ice cream cone). I wouldn't advise this hack for every day use as you can see from the photo above that her paint came off fairly quickly! Great for a last minute hack! Though in the end, I would stick with shoes your little one already has if possible!

For a full video tutorial on how I made her costume and Emma's, you can find it over in instagram under my story highlights titled, "2 scoops!" All of her sprinkles were felt from Hobby Lobby and the rest of her costume is linked below. If you liked this costume, you might also like last years "last minute" Halloween costume found here and or this one. Enjoy!! + happy almost Hallows Eve friends!


Warmly, Steph
