Happy Easter Lovelies!! As promised, although a day late as my night plans changed yesterday due to late public transportation, our Easter eggs this year!
They are marbelized rubber band eggs. Just mix 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil with your dye and you have instant marblization.
Wrap a rubber band around the egg before you dye it and you get a white strip. Wrap it around after you have dyed it in say yellow and then dye it in blue and your strip stays yellow and the egg is blue. Pretty cool!
I also made castle eggs!!!
Aren’t these the cutest? It was a kit from Target. Can’t beat that for $2.50! A knight, a queen and princess and a horse at this Kingdom.
If case you missed it these first appeared on our instagram and twitter. Make sure to follow us to get the latest!
Happy Easter Everyone!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day Lovelies!! As promised I have a lovely dessert bar for St. Patrick’s Day today! This fabulous Emerald City dessert bar was inspired by the color of the year, Emerald and OZ the Great and Powerful, a perfect combo for 2013. This magnificent city is filled with emerald delights like green popcorn, green candies, green jello and tons of green drinks too! Using free printables from earlier this week and some magic found at the end of the rainbow, this lucky city was born! Check out this beauty at the end of this yellow brick road!!

POSTED ON FEBRUARY 14, 2013
Happy Valentine’s Day Lovelies! Finally the day is here, my favorite holiday of the year!! I just love to sense of community today. From preschoolers to retirees, everyone is sharing the love today. I even had my apartment complex handing out muffins and chocolate in the streets as cars left for work. How awesome is that?! I have a special something today for you that I gave my little pup Keely. I also managed to get this gorgeous photo of her and to me it is straight up breath taking!
Ok on to the good stuff! Check out this Valentine’s Day Pup Treat that I gave to Keely today.
The X’s are made from chicken covered rawhide and the O’s are made from Cheddar and Liver heart shaped dog biscuits that I spotted at my local grocery store. They have peanut butter to keep them stacked together. Needless to say she LOVED it!

POSTED ON FEBRUARY 13, 2013
Lovlies!!!! Today I have a real treat for you! I styled and put together my own little Valentine’s breakfast treat for my special someone.They are Valentine breakfast doughnuts filled with love and sprinkled with lots of hearts! I hope you get inspired by this eye candy.
Isn’t just the sweetest!? I feel in love with the roses in the sweet xoxo vase.
I am smitten for the for you heart spoon marker and Valentine tag as soon as I spotted at Fancy That.
I adore the placemat too though. How cute is this?
Lovelies-Here is a Thanksgiving table that I put together. It is so simple but creates a beautiful runner and place card setting. The runner is made up of leaf garland from Hobby Lobby and gourds from your local grocery store. The turkey in the middle was the crowning piece we found at Cost Plus World Market as well as the wheat bunches. Everything was on sale as we purchases them a week before Thanksgiving so that is a major hint for you tippers out there. The place mats were found at Bed, Bath and Beyond, and the china and flatware were the families. The place cards were made out of pumpkins and name cards that I printed and glammed up myself with sticky jewels found at a scrapbook store. It all came together beautifully!
Lovelies! Here is a Halloween Party that I put together this year. The theme was black and white and all the treats were in 6′s for 666. There was a dessert bar, candy bar and drink station. Accompanied by a great photobooth, great decor and great friends it was a wonderful event. A big thank you to Josh from Ignite Images for these pictures.
The dessert stands were boxes wrapped in wrapping paper and the other serving trays were white plastic from party city and crate and barrel.
I made these broomsticks out of branches from the backyard and raffia. Here is the how to
These Fabu cupcakes were made and decorated from Tipsy Cupcakes, gourmet cupcakes infused with alcohol
Batty whoopie pies and ghoulish ghosts made by Whole Foods. Yes they can customize any dessert for you and they are amazing!

Make your alcohol display chic and fun by adding your own theme labels to them. Labels found at Marshalls by Martha Stewart. The shelves were made out of stacked containers found at Target. Add color matching cups and you have it!
