Summary: Everyone has a birthday. Some people like to celebrate those little “unknown” holidays like Best Friends Day or Book Lover’s Day. Others like to do it big for the Superbowl, Valentine’s Day, and Christmas. Whatever your holiday pleasure, Everyday Confetti has you covered! Karen and Glynnis (from Proverbs 31 Ministries) have compiled a book of activities, recipes, and (inexpensive) decorating ideas for a good number of holidays/celebrations throughout the year. Grab a copy of Everday Confetti and get planning!
Review: I love celebrating things. Birthdays, Christmas, random days “just because”, you name it! My only problem is planning. I’m awful at coming up with fun things to do or yummy foods to make. Thankfully I’ve found Everday Confetti! Not only is it a cool book, it smells good, LOL! (I am notorious for smelling books, I confess.)
I think one of my favorite parts of the book is how the authors tied in God to a lot of holidays where people tend not to think of Him. Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, even Passover (because there are a lot of Christians who don’t celebrate it, even though it’s actually a big deal!). There are a lot of things I’m planning to incorporate into our homeschool as well. Backwards Day, some of the Presidents’ Day ideas, Tell a Story Day, Books Lovers Day… I could go on, but I don’t want to tell you EVERYTHING they included!
The recipes are easy to follow, the decorating suggestions are great, and the book is very well organized. Part I is the Everyday Celebrations like birthdays and spiritual milestones. Part II is for Holidays through the Year and it’s divided into seasons (for the most part). Unfortunately there isn’t an index for easy recipe finding or recipes by holiday, which I think would be a great addition. Other than that I really didn’t see anything I didn’t like about Everday Confetti. I even read off some of the suggestions/recipes to my husband and he thought they sounded good too. When Mr. “I Don’t Like Celebrating Holidays” says things sound like fun or he’d like to do them, you know it’s a good deal!
