I'm a stay-home-mom of three wonderful kids! I'm lucky to have a hubby who has the patience with all my krafty making and my mess because of it! =) I love baking and CUPCAKES! My biggest passion is to party plan and make people happy!!! =)
I can't believe it has already been three years! They went by too fast! I saw this idea on Pinterest and I knew I had to do them too! Every year you'll see how they will change and what they are into that year
My daughter Jaela wanted a Lalaloopsy theme for her Birthday
I have to admit, I think those dolls are SEW CUTE!
I made button sugar cookies and used this recipe here.
I love how well they kept their shape!
I used neon food coloring on the cookie dough. I used a circle cookie cutter and a one size smaller circle cutter to make the circle "groove". Then I used a plastic straw to make the button holes.
Then I sealed them up with a bag topper
Jaela asked me to make Lalaloopsy cake pops but they have sooooo much detail so I just made "button" cake pops.
One of my friends have asked me to whip up some "Thank You" tags to attach to some sweets that she was giving out. We put a chocolate chip cookie inside a treat bag and attached the tag with some bakers twine from The Twinery.
Lucky for you, I made them downloadable for you to have as well!
My way of saying "Thank You" for being patience with me for my lack of post!
I have left some tags blank so that you can add your own notes!
you can use these tags on anything, like I have taped this tag on a mini brown kraft bag. You can attach to gifts, cake pops and more!
My mom, sister and I co-hosted a carnival party for my nephew's 1st birthday. My nephew and his parents live out of state but they come over here to celebrate since all the guest are from here as well.
We went with the traditional red and blue colors with hints of yellow
My mom's famous J E L L O! Get the recipe and tutorial HERE!
"Popcorn" cupcakes! These were fun to make!
Mini water bottles
Peanuts and caramel apples were the favors
We "hired" my brother to be the clown (yes...the birthday boy's daddy...hehe)
Since my brother has no "clown" experience, he just made an appearance and passed out these goody bags to the kids
We played lots of carnival games like Tic Tac Toe, SkeeBall, Ring Toss, etc. We also had a jumper that the kids loved. We had Bingo for the adults. We borrowed this popcorn machine from a family member.
Can you tell we love photo booths!?!
I got lucky and got some props at Targets $1 section which was for Circus/Carnival Theme!
My dad painted this Gypsy. It was hilarous when they boys took pictures with the gypsy!
