Fun, Football and Family and a Tutorial

After the holidays are all over and packed away for another year the remaining winter can be daunting for some. 

One of our fun family activities is watching weekend football games. 

I have gathered up some of my creative ideas to celebrate the games in style.  Fun for everyone and won't break the bank!  Many of these decorations I use year after year. 

The ideas are not team specific but you can always cater to your own team colors to make it fun. 

You can find my tutorial on how to make these easy chains - GET THE KIDS INVOLVED - over at Catch My Party. 

Making signs using heavy cardstock (reusable for years to come)...some themed cookies and a goalpost made with fringed paper. Easy and affordable decorations.

I used a hula skirt and some sticky numbers to make the "turf" hanging decoration...the middle picture is from the children's table complete with some Football BINGO and coloring pages....tissue paper fringe adorns the fireplace mantel coupled with a few printables. 

These Oreo Cakester pops were so easy to make for the kids - BIG SCORE

Setting up an easy grab and go station for the children is a must. Complete with juice boxes, some sweets and popcorn. 

For more ideas for your family football fun, I invite you to check out two of my Pinterest boards:

Would love to hear them!

Shining the Spotlight - Finding Home Farms

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you another company that I feel you should know about.  

I first learned about Finding Home Farms on Instagram. Little did I know, Laura, one of the owners of Finding Home Farms, lives local to me, in the Hudson Valley of New York. 
You can read all about Laura and her lovely family at her blog about page. 
 I immediately knew that I had to try their products in my home. I have grown to love their products (shop), Laura's sense of style and her blog. 
Can we just stop now and talk about their packaging first.  It speaks to you before even trying the products. Simple, organic and calming.  Isn't it just darling with the little dove.
sigh....insert smile

I love her blog tagline - Gather Create Connect - that says it all, there in three little words. YOU already know before going forward that you are in for a special treat. 
I am only going to speak to a few of their many products because these are what we use in our home with our family.

Happy New Year and welcome back to our first
Shining the Spotlight
for 2017! 

 I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are settled back into your routines.

Today I am so excited to introduce you to a company that has such a wonderful purpose behind it!  Jessica Griffis is a 17 year old college student paying her way through college selling Hilltop Design simple, natural and homemade products.  Jessica was also home educated!!! (dear to my heart)

Ya'll know I am all about the package as first impressions are so important. Don't you just love this sticker/stamp that she had on her package!  Spoke to me before I even opened it up and smelled the freshness of the products. 

I was impressed with the smell of the products, not overwhelming and artificial smelling at all. I felt safe using them on myself and my children. 

There are lip balms, lotions, scrubs, body butter, bath bombs and more.  The scrubs rival any other name brand and the bath bombs are THE BOMB!   The products are very …

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you a company that  not only meets but exceeds my expectation.  In service and product. 
Rustic Honey

The owner's name is Lauren Moran and I can see why her shop is so successful!  Rustic Honey is a lifestyle boutique. They offer women's clothing and accessories, children's wear, home goods, vintage finds, handmade gifts and more!  Let's look at this business card first. First impressions are everything in my book.  (I did not get a picture of the adorable chalkboard wrapping that the box was wrapped in but it was so cute!)

It's cute, to the point and shows her style.

Not even talking about the farmhouse towel that I ordered yet...but come on a hand written note to me personally and has all her social media outlets on there also. Clever!  On the opposite side of this personalized note is the cutest quote and picture. 

Ok I am getting to the towel I's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
