“Where the Wild Things Are” Party & Printables

“Where the Wild Things Are” Party & Printables

My oldest son Jonah’s second birthday is only two weeks away.  While planning for his upcoming party, I remembered all of the DIY decorations I made for his first birthday.  I thought it would be a great idea to give away everything I made for his “A Wild One” party.  It was “Where the Wild Things Are” themed and he even wore a Max costume.   I will do my best to include links to where items were purchased as well as download links to all of the “Where the Wild Things Are” printables. Not all printables are pictured below, so be sure to check the full list to get everything available.

I created the “A Wild One” Banner by printing it onto cardstock, hole punching the top, and stringing twine through the holes.

I ordered the smash cake and cupcakes from Walmart Bakery. They are currently having a special where you get a free smash cake with a bakery purchase of $15 or higher.  The Cake Topper and Cupcake Toppers came from PaperlyPress on Etsy. The cupcake stand and tropical leaves are from Amazon.

I created the graphic in the background and it is now hanging in my son’s playroom as wall art. I changed the text to Birthday – King of All Wild Things so that you can download it for yourself. Where the Wild Things Are Party & Printables Where the Wild Things Are Party & Printables Where the Wild Things Are Party & Printables

For party food, I created Table Tents with clever names relating to the theme. We had Moss Balls (Cheese Balls), Crowns (Peanut-butter & Jelly Sandwiches), and Monster Teeth (Apples, Peanut Butter, and Marshmallows).  I made cheese balls and rolled them in chopped parsley for a mossy look.  They were a huge hit and turned out even better than I expected!  I included the recipe below. I used a Large Crown Cookie Cutter from Amazon to cut out the sandwiches and toasted them.  The monster teeth were also a really fun food for the kids and very easy to make. Where the Wild Things Are Party & Printables

I created a Crown Yourself Print and put it in a basket with Gold Crowns i got from Amazon.  We took photos of Jonah in his “Where the Wild Things Are” Costume and framed them in Walmart frames to display around the house.

The Leaf Garland can be bought from Amazon and the Gold One Balloon from Hobby Lobby. I bought a “Where the Wild Things Are” Book from Amazon and asked people to write a note to Jonah on the front cover for a keepsake. I edited the graphic to say “Our Wild One” instead of Jonah’s name so you can use it too! You can print this Birthday Keepsake Note here.Where the Wild Things Are Party & Printables

Jonah’s favorite part about the party was riding around in his boat just like Max from the book.  We used poster board, tape, and markers to create a boat from his Radio Flyer wagon.  Of course his Build-A-Bear had to come along for the ride.Where the Wild Things Are Party & Printables Where the Wild Things Are Party & Printables

Lastly, I used the same prints from the “A Wild One” Banner but only printed out the crowns and the one to make bunting for his highchair.  He had a blast eating cake for the first time, and had to change clothes to open his presents.Where the Wild Things Are Party & Printables

Stressed is Desserts Quote Wall Art

Stressed is Desserts Quote Wall Art

Stressed is desserts spelled backwards. Today’s freebie is wall art to make you smile. Hang this free print on your fridge, wall, or wherever you can see it daily.

I know most of you already know this, but being a mom is exhausting and it only gets more tiring the older they get.  I always hear new moms complain about how tired they are with a newborn baby.  I agree, a newborn is tiring, but wait until they’re a toddler.  At least when they’re a baby, you get naps.  Once they start moving everything changes.  That sweet little baby is now running around breaking piggy banks in toy stores (speaking from experience) and being an emotional wreck.  Just when you think you have them calm, the slightest movement can set them off.

We are now entering the terrible twos and I’m starting to figure out the art of distraction.  FOOD SOLVES EVERYTHING.  If my toddler is eating something he is perfectly happy.  We now give him food while shopping, at the hospital, in the car, and even bring food into the grocery store.

If you are feeling stressed: take a break, eat some cake, and give your kid a bite. Remember, they are only little once.

Minimal Cow Wall Art

Today’s freebie is a Minimal Cow.  To give it an artistic feel, I put her on a white background with a black and white filter.  This printable looks simple but alot of photoshop went into it. I spent a long time cutting out the grass in front of her and rounding out her one lumpy side.  I had to make sure this cow was perfect enough to hang on your wall!
