My name is Dannyelle, welcome to Life is a Party!

I know life can’t always be a perfect…but it is what we make it. So, we may as well make it a party!  I sometimes joke that I am a “missionary of fun”, and love to get together with friends and family, to create beautiful things, and celebrate life.

This is a place for me to share ideas, attempts, successes and failures in cooking, baking, decorating, party planning, mothering, DIY, crafting…and living!

I am a stay at home mom, I have an M.Div, and B.Ed.  and some time soon I plan to return to teaching.  While I’m at home with my two beautiful girls, aged 8 and 11 this is a place for me to be creative, and share my journey.  My husband, my girls, and I live near Toronto in Ontario, Canada. 


If you’re new here, I’m so, so glad you’ve stopped by.  Use the categories to look around a bit.  Here are some of my very favourite post to get you started:

Best craft I’ve ever come up with and featured in the pages of Better Homes and Gardens, the Acorn Craft.  You’ll never guess what these pretty decorative acorns are made out of ….Easter eggs!  Find out how here.


It would be hard to pick a favourite recipe…since I love cooking (and eating) so much.  But if it was my birthday and you made me this cake, I’d be a pretty happy girl.


And, if you’re a gardener, my favourite post would have to be this sweet little fairy garden in a tea cup.  And, it’s easy to make too.


Around here, we love nothing better than a good party -and we’ll take a dinner party, a birthday, a family party, any excuse to get together really.  Here’s a recent favourite, a sweet little woodland tea party for my sweet girls.


And last but not least, if you’d like to have a peek around our home, check out the home tour category.

Thanks so much for stopping by and looking around, hope you’ll come back all the time to visit.

All the best, Dannyelle.
