Peanut Butter and Jelly is favorite and go-to meal for most households, especially with little ones. April 2nd is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day and although it has has passed, any day can be a day to celebrate Peanut Butter & Jelly! Elsie and Sadie went head to head with their favorite, “the Peanut Butter” and “the Jelly”! And who doesn’t love Donuts? We decided to combined the two to celebrate PB&J Day with PB& J Donuts! All you need is Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits , Powdered Sugar and of course the PB&J . The easy instructions to make the biscuit donuts can be found on the Pillsbury’s website. I took the donuts, covered it in powdered sugar, sliced it in half and then added the PB&J. It was fun, it was messy, it tasted amazing , and it was a hit! Kid and adult approved, this treat is a great way to commemorate PB&J and spend some time outside in the warmer weather.
Hi! It’s Christina, the modern half of neutral hue! I am posting without Ashley today, since i’m featuring my little Mila’s first birthday party. I am tearfully adjusting to the fact that my little lady is now one, but that aside, I had a great time putting together her party fit for a little lady.
I wanted this little soiree to signify soft vintage femininity with a modern touch. I was so excited to create this party for Mila that I made the invitations by hand, months in advance. I had bouquets of Baby’s Breath strung down a feature wall, made a Baby’s Breath crown for Mila and hung a branch from the ceiling with monthly pictures backed with blush card stock I found at Paper Source. I purchased transparent balloons and stuffed them with peach metallic tissue paper. I found a slew of white vintage handkerchiefs from a local vintage store and layered them across the table as a table runner. Honestly, I originally bought them thinking they would make an interesting swag attaching them by the ends, but designs always change while you’re actually styling.
The gift bags were filled with Wildflower Seed Paper I found on Etsy. The paper was shaped like daisies. Needless to say, I was thrilled with the find and it fit in perfectly — and as you can see here , I just adore flowers.
I made a 3-layer carrot cake from scratch with cream cheese icing (just like my mother made me for my first birthday). Speaking of which, Mila wore the actual dress I wore on my first birthday. It was a perfect fit, and an amazing heirloom and feeling to know I wore the very same dress. Life is just about that, making memories to share from generation to generation. And this party one amazing memory with friends celebrating Mila’s first year.
