Winter Birthday Party Ideas

Winter Birthday Party Ideas

The holidays are over so now it’s time to turn to Winter Birthday Parties.  If your child has a Winter Birthday then you know how challenging a party can be.

A Winter Birthday pretty much calls for an indoor venue, unless you plan on taking everyone skiing, ice skating, or dog sledding.  Not bad ideas if you live in an area where these activities are available.  But for the rest of us who aren’t so fortunate here are some winter birthday party ideas for you!

winter birthdayFrozen Party

One of the first ideas that come to mind is a Frozen Party.  You can’t get any more wintery than that!

It’s the perfect theme for your little princess, maybe not so perfect for your little prince.  If you do decide on a Frozen party for a little boy you can focus on Olaf instead of the princesses![spacer height=”-20px”]

 

 

 

 

winter birthdayWinter Wonderland

A Winter Wonderland party is a good alternative if your child isn’t into the Frozen thing.

It’s pretty much the same as a Frozen Party only without the princesses.  [spacer height=”-20px”]

 

 

 

winter birthdaySledding Party

Take the kids outside for some sledding and other snow activities.  Okay, this only works if  there’s snow outside.

Then usher them into the house for a hearty lunch!  Tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches are my favorite cold weather comfort foods.

Setting up a hot cocoa bar will add to the fun!

winter birthdayBeach Party

By the end of January you’ll probably be dreaming of sun drenched beaches, so why not bring the beach to you!

Throw a Beach Party!  It’s a great theme for teens and tweens.  You can center it around Disney’s Teen Beach Party movie or use your own ideas.

Hang posters and pictures of the beach.  Add a palm tree or two and some plastic pails and you’ve got a beach party.

Serve a refreshing fruit salad to give it a tropical feel and don’t forget the Hawaiian Punch!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kids’ Thanksgiving  Craft Table

Kids’ Thanksgiving Craft Table

 

Whenever we have a large family get together with lots of kids we like to set up a special table Kids’ Table.  Not only does it frees up room on the dining table it makes them feel special, and keeps the kids entertained during the meal.

This works great on Thanksgiving!  Set up a kids’ Thanksgiving craft table within view of adults so you can keep an eye on them.  Keep them busy coloring their own place mat before the meal.  A cute pilgrim hat crayon holder on each place setting keeps crayons hopefully on the table and not the floor!  The table can convert into a craft table after the meal to keep kids busy while adults clean-up, watch the game, or just visit.

 

Remember it doesn’t have to be fancy, just FUN!

Here are some cute ideas from Fiskars to help you set up your own Thanksgiving Kids’ Table.  For cheap craft ideas click here!  For fun treat ideas click here!

Make each child a table card with his or her name using a brown paper bag,  cardstock, and foam letters.  Trim the bag with pinking edgers, push the pointy corners in, fill with newspaper or better yet a popcorn ball and form into shape.  Insert bone cut out from cardstock and staple close.  Glue foam letters on.
Set sail with this “Mayflower” cup.  Cut out a circle of blue cardstock for the coaster.  Cut out the sails from thin foam, punch holes on the top and bottom, thread in straws and plop in to brown paper cups.
Pilgrim Hat crayon holder using paper cups, cardstock, and construction paper.  Cut out the bottom of a black paper cup with a craft knife.  Glue it on upside down to a circle cut from black cardstock, glue on construction paper band and buckle.
Thankful Tree made from cardstock as your centerpiece.  Cut out a tree shape from brown cardstock.  Fold each in half lengthwise.  Glue folds together to make tree stand up.  Cut out leaves from construction paper.  Glue leaves to tree.

 

Prefer a Turkey crayon holder?  Make these pinecone turkeys from Amanda’s Parties to go.

Or just cover the entire table with brown paper, you can buy them in rolls, and have the kids go at it!  That’s what The Frugal Homemaker did![spacer height=”20px” id=”2″]

 

 

This idea from Rusty and Rosy turns juice boxes into turkeys.

A popcorn filled paper bag turkey doubles as a centerpiece and a snack.  Great idea from One Charming Party.

Kroger Cake Review

Kroger Cake Review

Image source: Pinterest

Cake is one of the most important thing when you are having a party or during a holyday. This is why you need to pick the right cake to light up the party. There are a lot of things you should take into consideration from selecting the cake to receiving it at your front door or picking it up from the store. Also, take into consideration the design, the ingredients, and of course, your budget.

In this article we are going to review Kroger in order to find out more about their products and the designs. If you want to learn more about how to order a cake from Kroger and about their prices, you can visit them in person or search for the fees online. Kroger cakes prices are going to help you decide if this store is the best one to order the cake your want.

A Cake for Every Occasion

Kroger offer cakes for every occasion. At this bakery you can find cakes for birthdays, a baby shower, graduation, and even a wedding. For every occasion they have different licensed cakes. They have a vast selection of models and designs to choose from.

Birthday cakes
When it comes to birthday cakes, this is the area where Kroger excels. They have a lot of models for kids and for adults. Also, they have licensed designs for boys and girls. Some of their designs include Star Wars, Paw Patrol, Frozen, and Spiderman. All of these are very interesting and your kid is going to love the bright colors and his or her favorite character on the cake.

They also have simple designs which are great for a birthday cake. You can select a simple white or chocolate cake with a few sugary flowers as decoration. These are suited for anybody and they can even be a great birthday gift. One of the best thing about these cakes is the price. They price range between $24 and $47.

Baby Shower cakes
As we mentioned, Kroger has different cakes for every occasion. What better occasion to have a cake then a baby shower. They have licensed special designs for this event. Some of their most known designs include Baby Special Delivery Stork and Baby Block. The price of these are almost the same as the ones for birthday cakes.

Wedding cakes
If you want to have the perfect wedding but you are on a tight budget, you should pick out a cake from Kroger. They have 2 options: a 2-tier or a 3-tier cake. The designs are going to amaze you. These cakes look exactly like the ones you find at a renowned bakery and they also taste amazing. Also, this way you save some bucks on your wedding cake.

Build-a-Cake Service

One of the best things about Kroger cakes is that you can actually build your own cake just the way you like it. It is a great thing for people who want something special or simply when they don’t find the exact design they were searching for. Also, the best thing is that you can select everything from the cake type to the frosting and the decorations.

This option is great for those who want to celebrate a different event than a wedding or a birthday. With build-a-cake option, they are allowed to make the cake just the way they want. You can customize the cake by selecting the type of cake (sheet or round) and then choosing the icing, flavors, and the decorations. Get creative when purchasing a personalized cake.

Getting the Cake

After you selected and ordered the cake the only thing you can do is wait until the cake is ready. One thing you should consider is to pick up the cake a day before the part or at least a few hours before to make sure that the cake is ok. Kroger cake also offers a delivery option but not all Kroger stores have this option.

Unfortunately, cakes need to be picked up from most Kroger stores. It is important to order the cake about 72 hours before the party to make sure that the bakers have time to make it. Also, if the party is during a holiday you will need to plan ahead.

All in all, Kroger cakes have a great quality-price report. Since the price of the cakes are a lot smaller than the ones you will find at a renowned bakery, you should also expect the cakes to have a good design not an amazing one. Kroger makes it simple for you to order the perfect cake from their licensed designs or to build your own model. Just choose the one you like and enjoy it.

Star Wars Party for All Ages

Star Wars Party for All Ages

star wars partyThanks to the recent release of the latest Star Wars movie, Solo, Star Wars Themed parties are popular again.  I have to admit if we had to host a grandkid’s party this summer I’d probably persuade him to pick Star Wars as a party theme.

This post contains affiliate links.

Star Wars parties are not exactly limited to kid’s parties, many adults love theme too.  In fact I’ve even heard of a Star Wars themed wedding.  Now that might be going a bit too far for me, but hey a grand entrance thru a tunnel of light sabers would probably be pretty cool!

Having said that here are some fun ideas for a Star Wars Party!  Hope it inspires you to throw one too!

star wars partyReception Table

I found this sign on Pinterest.  It’s basically letters pasted on to a project board, you know the one you used for your child’s science project.  Really easy to do with stick on letters and stars.  You can customize it with your child’s age and name!  I’d use at least 1″ letters and 3″ stars in gold or the color of your choice.

star wars partyDecorations

Party decor is only limited by your imagination.  Think of the possibilities!  Lots of characters to choose from to make centerpiece cutouts or standing cutouts for your dessert table.  You can DIY or order from Etsy.

I love Photo Booths and so do guests of all ages!  Doesn’t take much to add a Photo Booth to your Star Wars Party.  You can tape a black plastic table cloth to a wall and use it for your background.  Stick on a few stars, you have some leftover from the reception table sign don’t you?

Add a few Star Wars related props and voilá you got a photo booth!
