Fabric Friday

Fabric Friday on Pretty Prudent

We are back this week with another adorable fabric from the Serengeti collection. This time it’s Jay-Cyn Designs for Birch Fabrics, Serengeti, The Plains. I love the idea of designing a nursery around this fabric, between the colors and animals there is so much inspiration to work with. You could tie the whole room together by sewing a homemade baby blanket with it too. What does this Fabric Friday fabric inspire you to make?

Enter for the chance to win one yard of Jay-Cyn Designs for Birch Fabrics, Serengeti, The Plains, and find out who won last week’s Fabric Friday after the jump…

Savory Pesto Monkey Bread Recipe

Savory Pesto Monkey Bread 2
Are you going to a superbowl party this weekend? I am! I was pondering what to bring for the feast, and I thought something you can eat with your hands would be ideal, and monkey bread popped into my mind. Usually this is a sweet treat (our Chai Monkey Bread Recipe and Lemon Monkey Bread Recipe are favorites), but I thought it could be just as fun and maybe even more delicious in a savory version. Savory Pesto Monkey Bread Step 2

I grabbed some pesto and sun dried tomatoes from the pantry, and a little cheese, and got to work. This recipe is surprisingly simple to make, but will look very impressive to your party going friends. Savory Pesto Monkey Bread

Most importantly, it’s delicious. Get our Savory Pesto Monkey Bread Recipe after the jump… (more…)

Lego Birthday Party Ideas

lego birthday partyThis little boy turned four a few weeks ago and we celebrated with a Lego party. You might remember him from his Batman 3rd birthday party, or maybe his first (football) birthday party that we shared right here on Pretty Prudent, You might also remember when he was born and introduced right here or even when I announced that he was going to be a boy with some chocolate mustache pops before mustaches were even a thing (I’m a visionary like that.) But now he is a big four-year-old boy and as many have been known to do, he is obsessed with Legos and so a Lego-themed birthday party was in order. We didn’t go nutso but did just enough to make it special and super fun. If there is a Lego party in your future, here are some of our favorite party tricks.lego birthday partyWe started off by dumping all of our Duplos out on the living room and inviting guests to don a Construction Hat and get building as they arrived.lego birthday party lego birthday party lego birthday party
