Nobody in this house was either well enough or old enough to stay up until midnight and ring in the new year, last night. So I thought I’d take advantage of the fact that the only headache I am suffering from is the one induced by congestion, cough and cold and make a special Happy New Year breakfast for my kids. Let’s face it, with New Year’s Day falling right after New Year’s Eve, my children are unlikely to be getting many special, bright and breezy 7am Happy New Year Breakfasts, so I thought I’d make the most of it this year, cold be damned.
The stars on this glass milk bottle were punched out of white contact paper and stuck onto the glass.
I made these milk cartons using a really helpful tutorial from Splitcoaststampers you can find here
. I guess you could seal the lids if you wanted to, though I used mini paper clips to keep them shut.
Because this is a breakfast party after all (remember…. no hangover!!) I made up a special cereal which I poured into their milk cartons. I used pretzels, mini marshmallows, teddy grahams, M and Ms, and a handful of actual cereal. The spoons are there to kid you into thinking that my kids will actually use a utensil to eat this.
With a pinkish theme going on, I got some small bottles of pink lemonade and made some hang tags for them. Luckily I ran out of 2 and 1 stickers so I was forced to write 2012 in Roman Numerals, something that my son asks me about almost every day because of the Roman Numerals marking chapters in books. I printed him out this sheet
because he’s 7 and always asks me lots of questions I don’t know the answers to.
Happy New Year!
I hope that 2012 will be full of healthy and happy days for you.
Roll on 2012…
