Can You Host a Play Date Just Around Play Doh? Yes You Can!
I’m so grateful to have found moms to hang out with, share parenting stories with and just help pass the time. As any new mom can attest to, finding one that you genuinely like, and has kids that are similar in age that play well together AND that lives close by feels like finding a unicorn riding a bike. It’s easier finding your soul mate on match.com (see prior post here).
I like to be social so while being a stay at home mom, I stay active and in touch partly by planning play dates for my little one. My most recent one was planned with one day in advance and themed around the new Play Doh set that my daughter just received. So I was psyched to have 4 moms and their toddlers over and happy to get creative with my dollar store gift wrap which matched perfectly with the Play Doh colors and toys.
Plus the floral pattern and colors were just so fun and summer-y that I knew I wouldn’t mind having them up for a while. My place is very neutral otherwise and this just adds a burst of color. Using gift wrap for your dessert table backdrops and/or blank walls is such a fun, cheap way to change things up! See my instagram account for pictures on this area decorated for fourth of July!
Thanks to my hoarding ways when it comes to my party decor, I was able to re-use the Oh Joy for Target pieces that I first used during my new year’s party and toddler tea party. See hubby, I DO end up using all this stuff!
And I had enough gift wrap and an extra Oh Joy for Target banner to cover the cake stands and even J’s playhouse door!
It was so nice to catch up with the AC on, and have the kids play together without worry that they’d fall off some playground ledge or hurt themselves tumbling down some slide. And luckily J was gracious with sharing her toys.
