When your Ultimate Frisbee-lovin' son is about to turn 15...and you need a party theme he'll actually appreciate...well, you know what to do.


Ultimate Frisbee Party @michellepaigeblogs.com


First of all, if you were not aware that Ultimate Frisbee is a sport, I must tell you that it is in fact a sport with it's own culture, language and rules.  There are games, tournaments, select teams, college teams, professional teams and even a SOTG 'Spirit of the Game' expectations.  There is a rumor out there that Ultimate will possibly become an Olympic sport as well?  So on your next walk in the park, watch out for flying discs overhead.  And by the way, discs are the correct term for frisbees...if you really want to sound like you know what you're talking about.

My son joined the local high school Ultimate team last fall and found his calling.  He quit all other sports to just focus on one.  Our entire family (grandparents included) have had a steep learning curve this year in Ultimate...this isn't disc golf!

OK, back to the party.Frisbees...I mean discs, were the focal point. I chose blue and yellow, because those were the color of discs that I found.  I made printables to tape on the front of each disc. (Scroll down to end of post if you'd like to print out your own.)

Blue and yellow crepe paper, curling ribbon and balloons helped carry the color theme.  My son added his own special white discs to the decor.  Apparently Ultimate games and practices are always played with white discs.

...for labeling snacks.
I chose round shaped snacks to resemble discs.

Ritz crackers, round pretzels and Funyuns onion rings filled up the glass containers.

I added the yellow Laffy Taffy because it was the perfect color,

Instead of making one cake, I made individual Ultra Star disc cakes for each guest.  According to my son, Ultra Star discs are the best out there.

I made yellow cakes with rich chocolate frosting, my son's favorite. To make the stars, I used a paper stencil and poured yellow sugar crystals onto it.

The boys were so excited to have their very own cakes to eat!

And of course, every party needs a photo booth.  Simple crepe paper taped up makes an easy, colorful back drop.

So I bet you're wondering what a group of 15 year olds do at a party nowadays?  



My son had every minute planned with a Mario Cart Wii Competition, NERF gun battle, Laser Tag, Basketball Shootout and of course some frisbee thrown in!

Just had to share with you this little card I made my mom, who recently had foot and toe surgery.  And naturally, it's filled with foot and toe puns. You do know that puns make everyone feel better, right?!  Take a look.

3.14 or March 14th, is Pi Day.
For a cutie pie.  Pi Day Printables

Which really means, PIE day.  And who doesn't like pie?
Got any math lovers in your life?  Or really anyone who loves pie--this is the perfect Pi Day treat!  (For a Cutie Pie.)



Mini pies at WalMart


These mini pies are found at WalMart for 50 cents!
Purchase pies, print out these tags, trim and attach.


Printable tags for Pi Day

Now you could easily just tape a tag to the top of each box....OR
tie it on with some green ribbon.  You know I always choose ribbon!


Pi Day tags


Hand deliver.
After taking these photos I realized I forgot to add a plastic fork. Just tape one on--you could even use coordinating washi tape.

When I gave these to my family, they didn't even use a fork!
Oh well.

Some GREEN for your day!


Printables for St. Patrick's Day


Here's a cute little printable to add some festive green color to someone's St. Patrick's Day.  Everyone needs a little green in their life, especially on St. Patrick's Day!


St. Patrick's Day Printables

Just print out these tags, trim and attach to any green treat.

You know my trick for scoring inexpensive green M&M's right?
Buy the red and green candies on Christmas clearance in January. Sort the colors.  Save the red M&M's for Valentine treats and the green ones for St. Patrick's Day.  (Store M&M's in ziplocs in the pantry for up to 12 months.)

I'm totally a M&M's fan, but if you have healthy friends- tie this tag onto a green drink, green fruit or a prepackaged salad.
