Joulukuu on nurkan takana ihan juuri nyt! Miten ihanaa! Molemmat tytöt saivat tänä vuonna oman kuvakalenterin, koska olen niin iloinen siitä, että he ovat rakastuneet tähän vanhaan traditioon yhtä paljon kuin minä olin lapsena. Nappaan niistä varmasti blogiin muutaman kuvan joulukuun aikana, mutta toinen löytyy jo Instagramista. Sen lisäksi meidän seinällemme ilmestyy taas joka vuotinen perinteinen pussukkakalenterimme. Sinne löytää tiensä tänäkin vuonna muutama pieni aarre ja herkku, mutta sen lisäksi kalenterissa on aina niitä mukavia yhdessä puuhasteluja. Sitäkin tytöt odottavat jo innoissaan. Jos sinulta on jäänyt kalenterin suunnittelu viime tippaan tänä vuonna niin täältä pääset printtaamaan valmiita lappuja yhdessä tekemisiä varten. Joko valmiiksi ideoituna tai itse täytettäväksi.

Sitten vielä vinkkinä kaikille sitä kyselleille ja muillekin. Äitinä ja hänen ystäviensä aivan ihanat tunnelmalliset myyjäiset järjestetään tänäkin vuonna. Pieni joulupuoti on Katajanokalla ( osoitteessa Satamakatu 5).

7.-10.12.

to-pe klo 11-18

la-su klo 11-16

( maksu käteisellä ja huomioithan, että pankkiautomaatti on poistunut siitä lähistöltä)

Olen löytänyt sieltä jokaisen joulun kauneimmat koristeet ja kranssit. 

Ihan kohta on joulukuu! Ihan kohta…

Lattemamma on instagram

by Sofia   -   in Random

Hey and happy Monday! I finally opened an Instagram account for the blog. I have been meaning to do it for ages but then yesterday I decided to just do it. I have had a personal Instagram account for a long time and I use it A LOT. So I don´t really even know why it took me so long to start one for the blog. But please do come follow me there! You can find it by @lattemammanblogi . I will be sharing hopefully inspirational things that I don´t necessarily have time to write about for the blog, it will be more fast paced and I do take those photos with my phone. The blog is not going anywhere as writing is what I love the most but lately I did feel like starting every blog post by saying sorry for dragging behind here so I figured it could be the space to fill the gaps. Like for instance I´m travelling to Paris with my mom on Thursday for our annual Christmas shopping trip so there you could be with me instantly instead of waiting to hear if I will write about it for the blog and when. Yay!

I wish you have a great start for this week! I´m travelling to New York ( yes again!) today  just for a day ( yes for work!) and I promise to Instagram something seasonal from there too! See you on Instagram!

Mermaid pool party

by Sofia   -   in Party planning

Cotton Candy´s 8th birthday for her school friends was on Monday. She had a flamingo pool party the year before last and it was a huge success so she wanted to do another pool party. She is very in to mermaids at the moment so she picked that as her theme. As we have the sauna & pool area in our building we just rented it out. I had smoothie bottles & straws for the girls for the pool but this time I set up the snacks upstairs for them.

We had ice-cream instead of a cake and Cotton Candy made mermaid bark ( from candy melts & sprinkles) for her guests. She was in charge of the menu so we also served some candy, potato chips, gold fish, cookies and regular sodas. On top of making the bark she also crafted the mermaid tales, from scratch and by her very own idea, for the straws. I only helped with the names. I found the perfect party favours in New York from Sugarfina. Fish & shell shaped ” fruits de mer” candies. I also bought a little bag for each girl with matching tissue paper from there as they were the right colour & the illustration looks like mermaid tale or waves.

All in all it was an easy and super fun party. The girls are so much older now they just take care of themselves. No pre-planned party games needed. They even arranged a spin the bottle for opening the presents. I think next year the party planner is ready to spread her wings and do everything by herself. I will however still be in charge of the family birthday parties for a s long as I can as I love the planning so much.

For the mermaid tales Cotton candy painted an aquarelle paper with the watercolours in the shades she wanted. The she cut them. I wrote on them with a glue pen and added glitter. we attached the tales on the straws with double sided tape. They were even prettier in real life.

Cotton Candy made the mermaid bark from 3 different candy melts and mixed srinkles & sugar pearls. It tasted as good as it looks! Here is the super easy how to.
