Great Trunk or Treat Ideas

Pin It!
Have you ever been to a Trunk or Treat? It's an alternative to (or it can be in addition to) traditional Trick or Treating. Lots of cars converge on a parking lot, the parking lot is closed off (for the safety of the children), & candy is passed out to the kiddos. It makes it even more fun & festive to decorate the trunks with a theme. Since a group of friends - or a church group sponsors the activity, it is a safe activity for all the little monsters. 

With October coming up, (& since these things take a little prep time) I thought you might be in the mood for a little Trunk or Treat inspiration . . . (Click the blue bar below to read more)

Paper Sack Stars

Pin It!
Get ready for a neat little trick that you're going to love having in your back pocket! Paper bag stars (and snowflakes) are easy to make & inexpensive. They are great when you need to create some drama with very little budget. They are especially great when decorating for a church function in a large cultural hall or a school activity in a gym. How about hanging from a pavilion? 
Here's what you'll need to make them . . . (click the blue bar below for more!)

Keys to Happiness from 2 Nephi 5

Pin It!
This is from a church lesson that my friend Colette shared with me. It is based on the scripture 2 Nephi 5. The scripture mentions, "And it came to pass that we lived after the manner of happiness." Here are eight keys to happiness that it teaches. I created this free printable to share with you. It can be printed as a 4X6 photo. (Easy-peasy!)

A Couples Shower for Chris & Kelsey

Pin It!
I've known Christopher all his life & his mom is one of my closest friends. It was such a pleasure to host a couple's shower for him & his beautiful bride Kelsey.
I didn't want to use party decorations that were too girly. I ended up with black, white & green. {It turns out that green is Christopher's favorite color!} I threw in a little burlap & some chalkboard labels to identify the food. There were no flowers - just greenery.
