While I definitely found a few nuggets in this book, I didn't walk away feeling like I was ready for a year of celebrations. Some pretty major holidays/occasions (i.e., Easter) only offered two or three suggestions. Then there were a lot of minor or made up holidays that were listed with only a couple of suggestions that would require quite a bit of research, thought, or creativity to pull something together. Other times the suggestions just weren't that creative. For instance, the suggestion for both Black History Month and Cinco de Mayo was to read a book about the topic and learn more about the reason for these holidays—but no books were suggested, nor discussion questions or other activities to make it fun. Personally, I would have preferred a shorter list of holidays/occasions and more thorough, creative, and fun ideas about how to celebrate the holidays that were included. Since this is a Christian book, I also wished that there was a spiritual tie-in for each holiday. Some of the holidays included this type of connection, but many did not.
The three sections that were the best were Valentine's, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. These were the most complete sections and thought some of the ideas listed might be things I could incorporate into my family celebrations.
While some may appreciate this book for what it offers, I think many readers will be frustrated.Read more ›
I can't think of a singe holiday that this book doesn't cover. It has it all, including Backwards Day, Left-Handers Day, and Book Lover's Day (on which this book would be the perfect gift for someone).
I like how it covers everyday celebrations, such as spiritual birthdays, reaching out to others, birthdays, and everyday moments. It also has all of the holidays, from the well-known days to the lesser-known days.
There are lots of recipes to try during these celebrations and I can't wait to try them. They all look so good and rather easy. My favorite part though are the ideas of how to make these days special, from notes to presents to ideas to parties. They are simple and not horribly involved and are things that I think I can easily manage.
2014 just got a little sweeter and I'm looking forward to making some fun memories with my little ones this year that will leave them in anticipation of what comes next!
I received this book free from Revell Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion of this book.
What I liked:
Many of you know that I don't review very much non-fiction material on my blog. But every once in awhile I come across something that really gets me excited and Everyday Confetti is one of those books. Both authors are part of the Proverbs 31 ministry team and I knew this book would have a Christian perspective and have the interests of women at the forefront. I don't know about you, but sometimes I need an idea to work with when it comes to celebrating special moments in the lives of my family. We have family traditions that span generations but I want to do something special with my daughters that is just ours. Our own traditions and that's where this book comes in. It has ideas and recipes that I never even thought of before. It's nice to have a fresh set of ideas to consider.
I love celebrations of any kind. And I loved the whole idea of being able to turn other days besides those red letter days on the calendar into a party. I want my children to have special memories of things we did together that maybe everybody else didn't do. I like to be unique in that way... LOL. There are so many good ideas in this book.Read more ›
