Even mama got to bring a few books out to enjoy, a couple old favorites to revisit and a new addition that we are loving. My copy of Naturally Fun Parties for kids arrived just a couple weeks ago and already I can tell it will be a favorite that we will refer to often.
Kinsley immediately grabbed it today to look everything over once again. With each turn of the page declaring a new idea for her upcoming birthday or a "oooh mama can we make this" at most of the incredible looking foods inside.
I think that is what I love best about this book, that it truly is a book for the entire family. Even the littlest among us enjoys looking at all the beautiful pictures the book holds. The themes for the parties are seasonal and incredible. With every party giving you all the details you need to host a beautiful party of your own, everything from crafts right down to the foods. The really great thing is that it breaks down all the details so that you can easily pick and choose which details speak to you and make each idea your own. It even gives you a timeline to help planning go smoothly and keep you from running around frantically at the last minute like I always seem to do.
Kinsley has decided a fairy party is a must, but this Gratitude Birthday Party is my absolute favorite in the book. Something about the simplistic beauty just makes me happy. And I'm thinking we need a banner like that just to have hanging in the house every day.
Now to the good part, the giveaway! Since I was lucky enough to win my copy of the book from a giveaway over at Rhythm of the Home I thought I would share the good fortune and give away a copy myself. Right now we are full swing into party planning mode so it seemed like the perfect time.
And the winner is Kim who said: "My favorite birthday party was my son Owen's First Birthday. I really want that book. :-) "
Congratulations Kim, send me your address so I can get your book in the mail to you!
