Don't be late for this very important date!
Want to add some whimsy to your daughter’s birthday party? Think Alice in Wonderland and see magical results. Set the scene with a “Mad” Tea Party table using common items such as a deck of cards and tea cups. Make labels reading “Eat Me” and “Drink Me” to add charm to nibbles and beverages, but beware if you have low ceilings! Try Pinning the Grin on the Cheshire Cat sitting atop a mushroom using colored board or paper and see who gets a purrfect fit. What about a follow the White Rabbit scavenger to discover what’s hidden in your garden? Let your imagination rule as you create a fanciful dreamland for your “Alice”. Don’t be caught unprepared this year by the Queen of Hearts, otherwise it will be “Off with your head”!

Start your Engines for Some Serious Birthday Fun!
Race car birthday themes are so popular right now thanks to the Disney "Cars" movies. This fun birthday party theme lends itself to countless ideas and super fun decorating. Red and black are popular colors, but any of the primary colors will work. A black and white checkered motif matches red, green, blue, orange-- just about anything. Use your toy raching track strips to set up a car racing game. line up tires and orange cones on the grass for a fun obstacle course. Tape a black dropcloth down with duct tape road stripes for a push-car race track. Stack up chocolate "tire" donuts on a dessert table. Matchbox race cars make great inexpensize goodie-bag fillers.

Buying all that disposable wrapping paper during the holidays is not only expensive, but takes a toll on our landfill and the environment. Just think of all that trash that is gathered up late Christmas morning after all the presents have been unwrapped. Wrapping paper from holiday gifts is largely to blame for a 25 percent spike in curbside trash volume between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, according to the EPA. Fortunately, there are pretty and festive alternatives to paper wrapping.
GreenGiftWrapping.com offers pre-sized fabric wraps that assemble easily with the pull of a ribbon. The fabric wraps can be re-used dozens of times and can even be laundered if necessary. Japanese Furoshiki is a beautiful way to wrap a gift and the wrap actually is a gift in and of itself. Learn the art of Furoshiki here. For an extra shiny effect and a different twist on recycled paper, recycled aluminum foil adds shiny happiness. Tie on some colorful raffia or a reusable fabric ribbon to finish the look or tie on a compact flourescent bulb instead of a bow. Decorate your packages with found elements in your backyard such as pine cones, pine sprigs, berries or other greenery. If you still want to go the paper gift wrap route, make sure it's made of 100% recycled paper and printed with soy-based inks. With these tips, cutting down on holiday waste should be easy- now if we can only get the toy manufacturers to do the same!
