Fall Chilli Cook-Off

Fall Chilli Cook-Off

Fall is one of my favourite times of the year, and I’m always looking for ways to celebrate the season.  I also really love hosting people in our home, and creating events and spaces where our friends and family feel welcome.

If you’ve been following me for awhile then you’ll already know that we did a major overhaul in our backyard this last summer, which resulted in our own little backyard oasis.  The only downside was that it took almost the entire summer for us to complete the project, so I was feeling like we hadn’t had much time to enjoy it by the time September rolled around.

My baby turned one this month.  I’m not crying, YOU’RE crying.  Ok, I lied, I’m definitely crying.  I cannot believe I hosted my very last, first birthday party.

Glamping Birthday Party

Glamping Birthday Party

I can hardly believe that my first-born turned EIGHT this August.  I know it’s so cliche, but it truly does go SO FAST! I’ve always loved celebrating my kids’ birthdays, despite the fact that they are a bit bittersweet as well, recognizing that my little ones are getting older.  However, my creative side loves to prep and plan each party to suite the interests of each individual child, and together we have a lot of fun with it!

I would say my party-planning style is 2-parts-DIY, 1-Part-Buy!  I really do love a good DIY, and I often find myself thinking, “I can make that”, when I see an idea I find particularly inspiring.  However, as a mom of four, sometimes it is just easier to pick-up the things I need – especially if I don’t have to compromise the quality of the theme in the process 😉  So, all that to say, I really do believe that anyone could replicate any of the parties I’ve thrown, whatever your party-planning style may be!
