It’s Grandparent’s Day on the 10th and we wanted to do something extra special this year to show Brielle’s Nana and Papa how much we love them! I went with the theme “We a-peach-iate you!” because we truly do. They’re always down to help out with watching Miss B while we go on a much needed date or just coming over to visit because they miss her…they’re phenomenal! Everything was variations of peaches to go with the theme! I kept all the food simple though, just easy desserts. Stick around if you wanna see the rest of this peachy party!
In my family we’re serious students of Harry Potter so it was only natural to have a Harry Potter Dinner party! Now, word of warning…this post is extremely picture heavy so grab a stein of butterbeer. You’ll be here a while. The first thing my guests came into was the potion station.
The cashier asked if I was a germaphobe when I checked out at the store with my haul of dish soaps and dish towels. Haha, no they’re all for the gift we’re giving out to our neighbors this year. If you’re looking for last minute gift ideas this one ticks off all the boxes. I got the taller bottles of dish soap because I liked how it gave more support to the card but the shorter bottles do work.
We have a problem at my parent’s house. Leftovers come into their home and when the owner comes back, so excited to devour their savory item, it’s vanished. The thief in the night is my brother and he doesn’t discriminate, dessert or half of a pasta dish, it doesn’t matter he eats them all. We knew he had a problem when Scott and I dropped them off some frosted dog cookies from Dog Bakery in Park City at my parent’s so they could give them to our family dog, Ernie. My mom woke up the next morning and there were the dog cookies sitting on the kitchen counter with one half eaten cookie beside it. My brother came upstairs later that afternoon and made mention of the terrible cookies that somebody had left. He was the only one not crying with laughing after being told he ate a dog cookie! We thought that would teach him some manners on respecting people’s leftovers but so far no luck. I made these to give my family in hopes that it’ll deter him just a little bit when it comes to the holy grail of leftovers…Thanksgiving! I’m not holding my breath though. In case you too have a leftover thief in your house I thought I’d offer it as a Thanksgiving freebie! Just right click and save it as a full size. Enjoy those leftovers!
