DAY+NIGHT 4th Of July Treat Board

Festive by day AND light-up at night for the 4th! 

This is one I’ve been excited to MAKE for weeks for now as we tend always visit others for the holiday. Espeically this one because the clear food container is actually meant to be a "cold" food tray by putting ice in the bottom (which doubles as a future serving tray for hosting cool food) How fun is that?!!


Want to MAKE this for your 4th of July day and night celebration or summer gathering?


Clear cold food container w/lid 

Tissue paper (pinks, blues, white, silver)

Twinkle lights



Graham Crackers

Extra fun

Star glitter garland

Enjoy MAKING! + Happy 4th to those who celebrate.

Warmly, Steph

Rainbow 5th Birthday Party

Rainbow-Rainbow for my youngest daughter's 5th Birthday and oh my goodness! This was such a fun theme to MAKE with! Every time I asked her the last few months, "What's your favorite color?" 

It's always.... pink and rainbow. Or purple and rainbow.  Insert my warm mom heart.

Since she was turning 5. I did a few fun twist's to make it personal for both the young kids attending and adults (which I'll share more through out the week!) Though above are some of the party highlights as shown with all the DIY supplies to MAKE what I created below for your rainbow or kids magical party fun!
