As the weather continues to cool down, let your little ones invite a few friends for a warm and cozy night in! Here are our five favorite tips for hosting the perfect sleepover.
1. Create a special space. Designate an area that’s ready for fun with a teepee or hanging lights. Make sure to lay the sleeping bags in a cluster or circle so that everyone is included in activities throughout the night.
2. Prepare a plush place for kids to curl up. Whether your little guests will be watching a movie or playing games, make sure there are plenty of pillows, throw blankets and soft seating for an extra cozy evening.
3. Plan a few light snacks for the evening activities. When choosing a sleepover snack, choose something that is healthy and light like Veggie Chips, so that guests don’t have any trouble getting to sleep.
4. Keep extra items on hand. It’s always a good idea to be prepared for any forgotten or lost items like toothbrushes, pajamas or sleeping bags. Create a basket of extra items a few days before the sleepover to be prepared ahead of time.
5. Cook up a mighty breakfast. Greet your sleepover guests with a special breakfast before they head home. Find our favorite recipes over at Design Studio.

Add another layer to your doorstep decor with these Halloween Face Balloons from Mer Mag. Whether you’re including another pumpkin face or a wicked witch and white ghost, this DIY is the perfect way to add additional elements that aren’t too spooky for trick-or-treaters.
Add some extra sparkle to your next party or play date with dash of fairy dust and a little magic! Whether they’re engaged in dress-up or ready for a whimsical celebration, we’ve fallen for all things fairy-inspired this season.
