Entertaining For Big And Little People

Now that our house projects lists is down to a semi-manageable level (it will never go to zero, will it???), that has led me to more thoughts about entertaining...it is so fun to finally start enjoying and sharing our home!   And, because we often include whole families many of the ideas include how to keep the little ones happy so the parents can have a good time, too.

Here are a few of my favorite ideas lately:

Super cute western theme birthday party!
I'd love to have a cowboy-themed birthday party for my son at some point...this is adorable!  I don't think the kids would fully appreciate it, but perhaps parents would.  :)

That kit kat cake looks great and something that even I could do! My boys are starting to move beyond themed parties, they now just want "chill" parties - the end of an era for me! Quite sad, actually. X Sharon
