Bubble gum contests were sort of a tradition in my family. We would do them on camping trips or at other family gatherings. So since I consider myself a bubble gum contest expert, here’s a little tutorial on how to host a bubble gum contest of your own.
HOW TO HOST A BUBBLE GUM CONTEST
Bubble gum contests are really great family activities since they require very little prep work and both adults and kids will truly have fun with it. Here’s what you need…
Okay we’ve been shamelessly teasing you about this Back to School breakfast, and we are excited to finally share today all the gorgeous photos!

The kids loved them — but more importantly, Liam was proud to pass them out.
Aimée mentioned yesterday that we have some super-cool preschool graduation ideas. We’re sharing them today over on One Charming Party, and here’s why: at each holiday party for Piper’s preschool class this year, I have re-created ideas from One Charming Party — like the Popcorn Turkey and Donut Tree — and I’ve developed a bit of a reputation. Now everyone is expecting something spectacular for Preschool Graduation. The problem? There aren’t any preschool graduation party ideas on One Charming Party… yet!
After racking my brain for ideas and coming up completely blank, it hit me
