ABC’s of Simply Celebrating Holidays

abc's of celebrating holidays

The ABC’s of Merrymaking, Holiday baking and booty shaking fun! This is a creative resource for all of us who are looking for ways to be creative in our small and big celebrations.

To be honest I love both the big and the small celebrations but in all of it I like to keep it simple.  I am not the mom who hangs wreaths for every single holiday and wears easter egg earrings or snowmen sweaters but I do like to simply enjoy the big holidays!  Sometime’s it’s simple like a yummy recipe: chocolate dipped strawberries shaped like hearts for Valentine’s day. Or a fun craft that doesn’t involve too much like cereal box bunnies.  Or a quaint little gathering for the family. Or a big celebration for friends and family.

Stay tune for more  great articles or you can follow us via your favorite social network to get our updates:Twitter, Pinterest or Facebook and our readers preferred way via email.

Be inspired and party on!
