Hello! My name is Shannon Taylor. I'm a long-time writer and editor from Minnesota surprised to find myself on an island in the Pacific Northwest with my husband, three younger children (the oldest is attending college in Chicago), and two dogs.

So what if instead of thinking about solving your whole life, you just think about adding additional good things. One at a time. Just let your pile of good things grow.

Bloom and Grow Earth Day Party

Earth Day is April 22nd, so all this week One Charming Party will be featuring ideas for you to host your own Bloom and Grow party. To be perfectly honest, I don’t see us hosting an Earth Day party in the midst of this insane Spring Sports/Dance Recital Prep/Field-Trips-Practically-Every-Day season. But my goal is to pick a couple of our favorite ideas to try out on Earth Day. Just for fun—no pressure, right?

But if you’re having a more mellow April and would like to host a party, you’ll want to head over to PagingSupermom.com for your free, printable Bloom and Grow invitations.

While you’re there, you can also print out these very cute printable leaves for compost pudding. To make the compost pudding, all you need to do is layer chocolate pudding with crushed Oreos in recycled glass baby food jars. We’re fresh out of babies around here, so I’m just going to use the small jelly jars from Lily’s birthday party last year. And I might even go all domestic and make homemade chocolate pudding. We’ll have to wait and see what kind of a day we’re having.

New ideas will be appearing all week, so be sure to check out One Charming Party if you’re interested!

    That day is election day here so prob won’t be partying either, but it’s a lovely idea! I shall try and think of something suitable to do to acknowledge the occasion though.
