Another holiday, another class party! Our resident kindergartener, Penny, is halfway through junior kindergarten and I am starting to get into the swing of sending a fun treat for her class on party day. I am naturally gravitating towards non-food treats for two reasons, 1) I am an allergy parent and unidentified snacks scare me half to death so I am not sending one in myself and 2) I can make a non-food treat well in advance.
When we got married I tried to bake some banana muffins. They were awful. I would describe them as banana flavoured hockey pucks and sadness. My mother in law shared with me her banana muffin recipe and promised that they would be perfect every single time. And they were.
In our house I always like to go a little over the top celebrating holidays both big and small. While I have an extensive collection of decor for Christmas, fall time and Halloween, my Valentine’s day stash has always been lacking. This year I tried my hand at making my own heart shaped tulle wreath. It’s fairly easy and inexpensive to make yourself with a few supplies you can easily find at a local dollar store or department store.
