Aye, aye! It's time to fiesta!

Just in time for a popular celebration in Texas, I discovered these fun designs for a Cinco de Mayo party!   Chris at 'Celebrations at Home' puts together some very cool ideas on her inspiration board, and shares them with us...I can't wait to try them out myself!
Are you ready to Fiesta?!

A 'Blinged Out Baby Shower'!

I must say that to design and decorate a baby girl's shower, was TONS of fun!!  It all began with a 'baby bird' theme, and her chosen colors of mint green, chocolate brown and pink....and it carried into 'baby' everything!  Including dessert!

Using 'nests' throughout the decor - from the buffet centerpiece, to the chocolate birds' nest on the table', and even a 'nest wreath' for the baby's door - it all tied in nicely with the 'baby bird' theme.


Party Favors were Baby's Breath seed packets, that I made and put on a 'Bloom Board', for the guests easy removal on their way out the door.








The dessert bar was full of sweets, including my 'Cotton Candy Pops' and 'Mini Mint Chocolate Ice Cream Cones'.



I hope the mom-to-be enjoyed it as much as I did planning it!

'Having your Cupcake and Eating it Too!"

I can't think of a better way to wake up on a Monday, and see this awesome idea for summer cupcakes!

An 82nd Birthday Party...

I've been blessed to have both of my parents still with me in this big ole' world, and last night we celebrated my Dad's birthday.  What a joy it was to see the twinkle in his blue eyes!  With serious health issues, that twinkle isn't always there, but yesterday it was!


After a hearty Texas brisket dinner, I had made a little 'flower pot' surprise for dessert...We've all seen the crushed Oreo desserts in different ways, but I added mine to the pots inside of pots (!) with a flower and fun mini pinwheel.  Reminiscent of a childhood long ago, but.with some new memories!  Happy Birthday Dad!

A Race to the Finish!

Just as most of us are 'racing to the finish line' of the school year, there is another major race that takes place this time of year in the south - The Kentucky Derby!
I stumbled on this great recipe from Celebrations.com for Kentucky Derby Chocolate Mint Julep Cupcakes (of course!) and just had to share!  Hope you make enough for me!

Spring has sprung!

Spring shows it's face in so many ways...new green sprouts from the ground, a pleasant little shower, and in Texas - the wind!
But this is one spring thing I would love to see -
Cupcake 'flowers' nestled in a little 'flower pot'! 
Too cute to eat!  Thanks to Mike 'n Aleesha for creating and sharing!

Baby, oh baby!

As I get ready for an upcoming 'Blinged Out Baby Shower", I just HAD to share photos from my 'baby 'cakes and 'baby 'cones I created for Easter.  Complete with a 'baby' ice cream tub, and a Pink Party Girl beaded spoon, the 'baby cakes' are even sweeter sitting atop a 'Rosanna' cupcake stand!...
I just LOVE baby bites!

Easter Easy!

Did you have a Happy Easter?  I sure did!
It was so easy this year, and I just have to share the photo I took before we sat down to Easter lunch ~...very simple, but sooo Easter easy!
Notice the cute little chick salt and pepper shakers, and the cupcake stands by Rosanna ...they not only hold dessert, but are part of the spring decor!

Spring Chicks...

Well, it's not EXACTLY what you might think, but close! 
These 'chicks' are perfect for your table anytime of year, thanks to Martha Stewart!.  Adorable AND yummy, what better way to end a delicious Easter lunch?
....at least until you go for the chocolate eggs!
Happy Easter!

Color Trends in 2010

Just as I recently spoke on the new color trends of 2010, I happily discovered waiting in my mailbox, 3 beautiful invitations depicting exactly that!
'Retro Renewal' is a reflection of the 1960s and '70s in color and design,
so I was really excited to see several
events taking the trends to heart!  The first step to a party is the excitement created by the invitation, and these three show us exactly how it's done!  Cheers!
