I am apart of a new parent group and hosting in June (nine families). I want to get the babies hand prints on paper to make Father’s Day cards for all of the Dads.

I’d like to try making petit fours for my daughter’s birthday party. We’re trying a tea party theme!

I’d like to host a 4th of July BBQ but indoors since I live in an apartment. Make the place seem like the outdoors have come inside

This isn’t really a party idea per se, but I would love to start a “cookbook club” for girlfriends so we can all get together and share recipes! (Sans kids, so we can actually eat without being interrupted!)

I want to make fairy bread – regular bread spread with Nutella and covered in sprinkles – for the next kid party I host.

I’d like to have a “teach a craft” party, where each guest teaches the others how to do some crafty thing.

I want to use glo sticks in translucent tubes covered with tissue to look like fireworks. Fancy glittery pipe cleaners or more glo sticks for tails of course.

My little girl’s first birthday is in May and I’d love to add a homemade craft to the small party. Maybe a pretty banner or some special desserts. 🙂

Something on my to-do list is to host a tea party for the ladies of our small church, with lots of elegant little details, of course! 🙂

Our next party is the christening of our son Emil, and since I love elephants, I’m going to make little blue elephant placecards, elephant cakes and figure out some way to do an elephant-themed centrepiece. Such fun!

I’d like to try all sorts of posh savoury & sweet petits fours, just in case I have a handmade weeding to prepare (once that Sweetheart of mine is ready to propose…)
Thanks for the chance!

I love those water lilies on the table on the cover! Such a nice addition for a tea party or some other “pretty-themed” event! 🙂
