Free Decorative Valentine’s Banner

January was a bit of a whirlwind! If you follow along on Instagram, you probably saw us posting fun finds at CHA, the Craft and Hobby Association trade show we attended in Anaheim, CA. Next we hosted a bath salts, make-and-take table at the opening night party for the new BASH conference for party bloggers and event planners, which was hosted right here in Phoenix. There was also a fun trip to the zoo with Animal Jam, and then we totally got sucked into our new friend Rachel‘s book. We met Rachel at BASH and she gave us a copy of Party Girl — it’s in the genre of A Devil Wears Prada, and if you like light-hearted but enthralling stories like Twilight, then you’ll love this novel. This week we got back to work and shot a whole slew of new Valentine’s ideas that we’re excited to share.

First up is a new free printable Valentine’s banner. We still really like the preppy Navy & Fuchsia LOVE banner we shared last year, but we wanted to go back to black.

Family-Friendly New Year’s Party Ideas

New Year's Clock Game

On New Year’s Eve, we love to invite a few families over and celebrate together. We usually have a little dance party and play some games. Then at “midnight” — since we are in Phoenix, we can celebrate with the crowd in Time Square at 10pm our time, which is conveniently more doable for the kiddos — we throw confetti and drink sparkling cider floats. It’s a whole lot of fun!

Free Printable Back to School Banner

Pennants say "Hit the Books" - love this Free printable Back to School Banner from @PagingSupermom #freeprintables

The transition from lazy summer days back to a strict school schedule can be tough on kids. I like to decorate the house a bit to help the kids get excited for the change.

Love this free and cute Back to School Banner from @PagingSupermom #freeprintables

Before I tell you about our back to school banner, though, I wanted to let you know about a easy opportunity to help out the Adopt a Classroom foundation through Great Clips #GREATLIST program — all you have to do is download a free app!

Great Clips recently launched a super-convenient Online Check-In App that lets you add your name to the waiting list at your local Great Clips salon (with more than 3,300 salons throughout the United States and Canada, there is bound to be one near you). It’s not an appointment — what it does is let you add your name to the list before arriving at the salon to help save you time, and more time definitely comes in handy during the back to school rush.

The best part is when you download the FREE Online Check-In app, Great Clips will donate to the Adopt a Classroom cause. According to AdoptAC, on average teachers spend $1,000 of their own money to make sure their students have the resources they need to learn. Great Clips has pledged up to $20,000 to AdoptAC and every download of the free Online Check-In app helps.

Three Free Printable Banners

Show your #Olympic Pride with this Free Printable Brazil Banner via @PagingSupermom -- free Team USA Banner too!

With the World Cup going on now in Brazil, we wanted to share this free printable Brazil banner.

Free Printable Brazil Banner via @PagingSupermom -- would be great party decor for a Missionary Farewell or Missionary Homecoming or for a #WorldCup Soccer viewing party

Are we big soccer fans? Well, actually no. I’m pretty sure the only soccer games either of us have been to were for one of our kids.

Are we big Brazil fans? Um, no, not really big Brazil fans either, but I created this banner for my sister’s missionary homecoming earlier this year and figured soccer fans could get some extra mileage out of it. Also since we know there’s some debate about whether it’s “Brazil” or “Brasil” we’ve included both S and Z so you can use whichever you prefer.

If you’re with Team USA, of course we’ve got you covered there too — get our free printable USA banner.

Now in case you were interested in seeing some of the fun pictures from my sister’s Missionary Homecoming, I’m happy to share those too! (Don’t know about this whole Mission thing? Find out more.)

Missionary Homecoming Ideas via @PagingSupermom

The whole family was pretty excited to welcome Jenny back from Brazil, and we got together the night before to make a bunch of welcome home signs to hold up at the airport. It was a crazy, messy business using poster markers, glitter and glue with a bunch of kiddos, but it was great. We also made a fun sign for the house — more on that in a minute.
