This was delicious (as is--with bacon). Perfect fall salad. Thank you.

Oh my goodness. I just popped onto Ohdeedoh after not visiting for a while because I'm a teacher and am so busy with the start of the school year. We happen to be reading Caps for Sale in my first grade class tomorrow, and this post has inspired me to make mustaches for the kids to wear when we act out the story. Thank you! They're going to get a kick out of it. Beautiful party.

I know someone who made these with her kids and as they grew up and moved out, it became a tradition to always include one in a package or with a letter. Now she has hundreds of them and she hangs them all over her house at Christmastime. It's really beautiful.

Here's another: s'morepedoes. You could make them on the grill or in an oven.

Beautiful room! I love the colors. Remember you can make your own wall silhouette.

Oh, I love this (and Meg's blog).
I wrote some tips for hosting a sledding party earlier this winter:

And don't forget this outdoor winter party featured on Ohdeedoh a while back. Almost makes me like winter.

Love the letter and the felt alphabet! I wonder if those are pockets on the alphabet. If so, you could play a game with your kid where they try to sort little objects into the letters that match the beginning sound of the word (like a matchbox car for the letter C, a barrette for letter B, etc.). I teach kindergarten and have something similar in my classroom--but not nearly as pretty!

Cute, cute. Love those invitations and the tutus.

My daughter just had a horse-themed birthday, which you can see photos of here and here.

I also wrote up some ideas for a Toy Story-themed party last spring here.
