The kids will love helping you turn those extra hard-boiled Easter eggs into these cute springtime chicks and bunnies, with some simple slicing and a few basic garnishes!

A few weeks ago, when I shared my Peter Cottontail-inspried Easter printable, I promised to create a deeper meaning of Easter-type printable. So that’s what I have for you today.

Chewy chocolate coconut macaroons are shaped into bird’s nests and decorated with colorful Peeps chicks and candy-coated chocolate eggs for a festive Easter cookie or springtime treat! One of my favorite early signs of spring is the return of bird song. It might still be cold out, but if the birds are back, you know that the turning of the weather can’t be too far behind.

St. Patrick's Day Free Printable ~ Irish Blessing | FiveHeartHome.com

Heading into March, my mantle is still bedecked in pink and red, so I’m thinking it’s just about time to switch that out for some kelly green. While I don’t go too crazy with St. Patrick’s Day decor, I do love me a good Irish quote. So I transformed the words of one of my favorite Irish blessings into the type of printable that would make a wee leprechaun proud…and today I’m sharing it with you, too! I don’t know {Read More}

This Chocolate Mint Cookie Bark — with its two layers of chocolate, Oreo chunks, mint chips, and mint M&Ms — is so festive and enticing that it can even double as Leprechaun Bait! People.

New Year's Free Printable ~ Auld Lang Syne | {Five Heart Home}

Happy (Almost) New Year, friends! I decided to create a printable to help you ring in 2014, and I thought it would be fun to incorporate the words of that beloved, nostalgic, and cliched New Year’s Eve song, Auld Lang Syne.

And then I decided {Read More}

Trick or Treat ~ Free Halloween Printable

Trick or Treat ~ Free Halloween Printable | {Five Heart Home}

I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that October is already almost halfway over. In fact, can I make a confession? I just now finished setting out my Halloween decorations. I’ve had some fall decor up since the beginning of September, but I got sidetracked and busy, and I neglected to add my Halloween stash when October rolled around. Oh, the mom guilt! But as of this weekend, that’s remedied…my kids can now stop pestering me {Read More}



Pink First Birthday Party

Pink First Birthday Party | {Five Heart Home}

When you’re born into the world after two big brothers, odds are your mama is going to make sure you are immersed in plenty of pink to balance out all those years of blue. So naturally, it only makes sense that your first birthday party would follow the same theme… A little over a year ago when we were expecting our third child, we decided that we didn’t want to find out the gender ahead of time. Already having two {Read More}

We don’t really have a lot of trees with color-changing leaves here in central Texas, and our {Read More}



6th Birthday Pool Party

This past weekend, we celebrated my eldest son’s 6th (I can’t believe it!) birthday with a fun summer pool party. It’s the best kind of party to beat the heat when your birthday falls in August! I found the cutest set of Pool Party Printables from Mimi’s Dollhouse (they come in pink as well!), so I ran with this primary-colored pool party theme. I used to create my own printables for birthday parties, but there are so many amazing, affordable {Read More}

“America the Beautiful” Subway Art ~ Free Printable

America the Beautiful Subway Art ~ Free Printable! | {Five Heart Home}

Independence Day has always been one of my favorite holidays.  I love patriotism and I am very proud to be an American, which is probably why Lee Greenwood’s famous anthem gives me chills and brings me to tears every time I hear it.  I have happy childhood Fourth of July memories of sitting on a blanket on the banks of Town Lake while listening to the 1812 Overture and the Stars and Stripes Forever, as huge fireworks lit up the {Read More}

A couple of weeks ago, we celebrated a successful end to the school year for my Kindergartener and preschooler with a family cupcake celebration that we deemed our Smarty Pants Party.
