Talk about coincidence. I just won this book from Burdastyle.com (always, always comment to enter a giveaway!). And the funny thing is my kid's birthday is coming up in a few weeks and I am making tents for her party in the park. It's going to be a camping theme, which was an extrapolation on what she wanted — a marshmallow party. (When do you eat marshmallows? When you're camping. So there you go.)

Anyway, I had already decided on this A-frame tent I saw at the great blog Grosgrain. It seemed a little simpler to make and set up than the teepee style, and I wanted to make three of them so the kids don't have to fight over them. Of course the teepee is cuter, but I'm all about simplifying when it comes to planning my kid's party. We live in a tiny apartment in Manhattan and have to drag everything for the party to a nearby park. Oh, and we don't have a car and you can't grill in the park. So that means minimal everything. For food, we'll have pizza delivered to the park. Whatev.

Anyway, I'm very excited about this book. I bet it will be inspiring. And I think there will be good ideas on handmade gifts for my kid's friends. They all have a carrier now. I need something new for the next round of birthdays.
