A Summer Backyard Camping Party with Free Printables

“This post is sponsored by Sony Pictures in connection with the release of Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation. ” During the summer months I'm always on a lookout for easy ideas to keep my kids (and the whole family) busy and entertained.

A Summer Cheese and Beer Tasting Party

Father's Day is this Sunday, and if you need easy, no-cooking-involved, no-fuss but totally delicious ideas to celebrate dad, then this Cheese and Beer Tasting party is IT! I mean, I don't know many dads who'd pass up the chance to taste beer on his special day (or any day...). Or cheese.

Paper anything is my jam. But paper flowers are my particular favorites! I mean, you take a fairly simple, banal, flat piece of paper and fashion it into something 3-D, beautiful and super practical.
