I have been wanting to draw a school bus for quite a while now. I know, that might sound silly to you, but I guess the thought of back to school makes me want to get creative. I drew this cute little bus last night to add to the top of what I’ve used for the past couple years for my own daughter – a New Teacher Question Card. I love this for finding out all the teacher’s favorite things from snacks to her favorite quote. It makes is SO much easier to figure out gifts & treats through the year.
I’m offering it to you as a free download, but if you don’t have a printer or would like it to be a high quality print on a thick card for you to keep visible around your house during the year, just go here and we will ship you one for just $2 for shipping + handling.

Hope this helps you as much as it helps me!

Last week, I told you about a little series we’ll be doing on the blog. I get a lot of questions from clients and friends on party planning and so I thought I can share a little insight! Now, everyone has their own way of event planning, so just because I do something as step 1, doesn’t mean that you have to go in that order, I just am giving you the way I do it and you can make it work for you. I love planning parties & events, so let’s get to the fun part…
This is one of my favorite parts of party planning… selecting a theme! I’m a mom of a 3, soon to be 4-year-old, so I started planning the theme of her party just about a week ago. Her birthday is at the end of April and although that may seem like a long time from now, as a busy mom, I want to have a plan so that I am not forced to rush or stressed come March! Just because I started thinking about it last week does not mean that I am always thinking about it, believe me, I don’t have time to think about my child’s birthday party, nor should I for 3 months straight. This will just allow me to get my thoughts on paper and in my head so if happen to be out shopping one day and I see the perfect party favor, etc. I can buy them and not have to think “wait, how many people should we invite, who has siblings”, etc.
Selecting a Theme
Now here’s something I do take a little seriously and I don’t want this to come out the wrong way, but parties are all about the honoree. In other words, if you are doing a party for your child, it is for your child, don’t forget that. It’s a time to celebrate, reminisce and make a new memory. It is not about having the perfect party, the most amazing sweets table or the best party favor. I am all about having a wonderful celebration, but if it is done for the wrong reasons, it becomes about you and not your child. I have seen way too many parties, way over the top done for show. In other words, don’t get discouraged when you look at Pinterest for party ideas, most things you see over and over were done for show anyway. Celebrate your child, celebrate life, celebrate a new day we are so blessed to have.
Ok, so here’s how I do it… what does the person like who you are throwing the party for? What are their hobbies? What are their favorite colors? My daughter’s second birthday party was a Parade theme. I had never heard of that theme before, I just knew she loved parades. We went to Disney World around Christmas (a few months prior to her party) and she fell in love with the parades. We had to play the Christmas parade from YouTube every day for about two months and we would have to march around the house together pretending we were in a parade, so it was clearly evident what she loved! I love parties that bring out personality. We asked the children to bring a riding toy and we provided little noisemakers for them to play and we had a parade in the park. It was such a great memory for me and so fun for her. Last year, we did a dress up/ballet theme. She wore tutus constantly and loved to dance, so I pulled things I already had together to make a theme that fit her girly dress up personality. Think outside of the box… it doesn’t have to be a character theme, it can be almost anything related to their interests.
I have a handy sheet for you to print that once you select a theme, you can jot down some notes and ideas as you come up with them throughout the planning process. At the end of the sheet, I have a “Don’t Forget” section. I always have to have this for the party. All along you will think of things that you need to remember, like buying ice!
