Happy Birthday and Hello Baby! This seems to be the theme for this summer! Having kids definitely creates a very social calendar and it seems more and more of my friends are glowing and prego these days! I decided that I would try to be cute, practical (budget friendly), and personal with my summer gift giving and decided to go with Summer Buckets.
You all remember my new obsession with paint pens. I took my investment in those pens and used them to personalize these cute summer beach pails. For the Birthday boy/girl I added a summer bathing suit or beach towel and some fun beach toys. For the new babies I mixed it up with bath towels and shampoos or new baby outfits! I love how they turned out! I even made sure to take care of any big sister or brother with matching mini-pails. These could also be used as party favors for your next birthday party! Other great ideas using buckets can be found here at Scary Mommy’s site. And for those of you who just want to get one quick without the DIY approach, check out this great site - Just A Dream. Now I have to work on my Summer 2010 theme, any suggestions?
