Cork Boat Thanksgiving Place Cards

Cork Boat Thanksgiving Place Cards | Confetti SunshineAs part of my nautical inspired Children’s Thanksgiving table, I knew I wanted to come up with some fun Thanksgiving place cards. Not that all the children at the table will be able to read, but most will be able to recognize their own name. And, how could you say no to such a cute idea as cork sail boats? I’ve been wanting to make these for forever, and just loved the idea of sailing these little boats right into Thanksgiving.

And, a great bonus, is the fact that these little boats make excellent toys before the festivities begin. While I am making one for each child, I will also be making extra boats to float along the middle of the table. I imagine that these boats will be racing down the table in no time while the children (patiently) wait for dinner. [Read more...]

Children’s Thanksgiving Printables Placesetting

children's thanksgiving printablesAre you ready to start talking about Thanksgiving yet? I know, I know. It’s not even Halloween. But, this is how my life goes. We jump from one party to the next. And, I really need to get started thinking about Thanksgiving. It’s my first year hosting more than a half dozen people. We are going to be jamming over 30 people into our house – AND feeding them. It is craziness people!

So, to start I figured I would plan the children’s table. While they are always very easy to please, I still wanted to make it more special than lining the table with fake turkeys and pumpkins. So, I had the grand idea to create a nautical inspired kid’s table! I designed “Set Sail To The New Land” placesetting as free children’s Thanksgiving printables.  [Read more...]

Paper Holiday Wreaths diy

DIY Holiday Paper Wreath | Confetti SunshineIt’s the time of month again that I get to share a fun paper filled project with you! I love wreaths, and paper, and Christmas. So creating holiday wreaths diy style seemed like a natural fit for me. As you can see, I’ve already been secretly planning my Christmas decorations – and I am so excited to be adding a little plum into the mix. I really love the blues and pinks of years past, but I’m ready for a little change – and a new color is always a fun choice! I love the plum, but I am also thinking a little pale pink would pair nicely with the ensemble. [Read more...]

How To Customize a Trick or Treat Bag for Halloween

how to customize a Trick or Treat BagI am one of those lame parents that has never bought their child a trick or treat pumpkin or bag. Every year I see them at the store and just can’t bring myself to buying one. I’m not sure why I haven’t. I guess I could never decide if I should buy a pumpkin and store it year after year or to buy a new one every year. Anyways, the decision was too much, and so I never bought a plastic pumpkin!

So, now to over compensate for that decision, I have decided to start a new tradition where we decorate brown paper bags every year for trick or treating. And, while it doesn’t look like the girls helped with these bags, they actually did. They each picked out what picture they wanted on their bag, and I created some design around it. Can you guess whos is whos?

Wouldn’t these bags look great with these cute little ghosts inside?  How about these monsters, or trick or treat pouches?
