Is there a such thing as a low key party? plus winners !!!

Is there a such thing as a low key party? Oh my... I am exhausted! I did get to dart out of school right at 2:00 and now relaxing after a hot shower.

Here are some of my tips. I'd love to know your tips!
1. Have a guest reader - You can really get ready if there's a reader keeping your little ones occupied

2. Pick one craft and don't try to do it on the day of the party. I always run out of time at parties so rarely do I do crafts the day of the party.

3. Kids love using their five senses. I try to fit in some curriculum during parties. This year I covered our Science Unit: five senses.  At Christmas we will be doing a goods and services unit and Holidays Around the World.

4. Keep them busy! Packets are a plus! There are tons of free packets on tpt. Students always need something on their desk. I love my pumpkin time unit and can't wait for Holidays Around the World.

5.  Use signup genius to get donations for party food or supplies. This year we had Chick-Fil-A.  Three parents sent in money other parents sent in paper products, cupcakes, drinks, etc.

How do you keep SANE on holidays? I swear Halloween is the worst :)

3/50 project with a giveaway

In case you didn't know... I'm obsessed with decorating for holidays. I used to go all out and now I like it simple. Whenever I'm in the mood to decorate I just go to my garage and pick a door hanger. Pretty simple these days. I have door hangers for all seasons. It really is getting out of hand. HAHA!

When I was in Biloxi last month I found the cutest booth at their local Seafood Festival. It's always a treat when I find new artists. I'm OVER commercialized products. I try to support the 3/50 project as I have seen cute shops disappear over the years. Check out the cuteness at Elizabeth Ann's Shop. I am now a forever fan! LOVE her art!

Did you know door hangers make great gifts? I love door hangers as presents. Usually for bridal showers I will give an unexpected gift such as a door hanger. I remember when I got married I always remembered the gifts that weren't on my registry. Same goes with baby showers. Look at this precious chevron elephant. How stinkin' cute is he?

And... of course I need door hangers at school. 

Take a look at some of these precious hangers on her esty shop or Facebook. She also has gorgeous frames. They were stunning in person. I can't wait to do another collage wall with some of these frames.

Do you need a new door hanger? Would you like to a chance to win one?
