Stacy of Kids Stuff World and I had the opportunity to throw the first SA Crafty Kids party over the weekend with a 4th of July theme, putting our crafty skills together and rounding up some of our favorite local bloggers for an afternoon of celebration. I went all out with decorating the house and wanted to give you a peek at our day...
I rounded up some of my favorite American authors in the living room (along with the 4th of July bunting pictured above), and a globe with the US facing out.
The refreshment table was decked out with items gathered from around the house: vintage spools, wooden blocks, mason jars, red white and blue yarn balls, and my suitcases had to make an appearance, too, of course!
Stacy and I were dashing around like crazy ladies getting everything ready, but we had a blast doing it all--parties are so much easier (and enjoyable) when you're throwing it with a friend (and Stacy is one of the sweetest!).
And most importantly the kids all had fun--I think we had close to 20 all together! It's such a blessing to be able to gather with friends in celebrating our country and all of our freedoms. I have been truly blessed with my family, my home (no matter how messy it is at times), and my growing community of friends here in San Antonio--and of course, all of my awesome readers here at Maker Mama!
Thank you all for your support in my pursuit of a creative, meaningful life. I hope that I can inspire you all and I am certainly inspired by all of you!
Hope your 4th of July is full of friends, family, and an appreciation for all the blessings in your life!
