8 is great!!

February 4, 2013

My little Bean turned 8 this weekend.  We had a small party with her friends at home.

We stuffed a LOT of fun inside!

She’s wanted a cupcake shop before she knew that cupcake shops were a “thing”, so we brought out the cupcake theme again this year.  Heavy on the cupcakes.

 I love finding little water bottle wraps online.  These were a rainbow of polka dots, and I added punched circles of scrapbooking paper with cupcakes on them.  We had juice boxes too, but water was the beverage of choice – I think because the bottles  were so cute!

We went light on the goodie bags because each girl frosted cupcakes to bring home in their own bakery box and fabric aprons with heart shaped pockets.  The baggies included a little plaque with each girl’s initial, some cupcake erasers, and a Cupcakes-to-Go container (meant to store a single cupcake without it getting squashed!) filled with heart shaped marshmallows.

 

The cupcakes kept them busy, homemade buttercream, fondant, gummy things, sprinkles…

and so did the photo-op area.

Everyone had their picture taken by themselves and with the birthday girl, and I got some wonderful group shots.  This was easy-peasy to set up, and they loved the props.  So fun!

I hope my Big Girl thinks her day was sprinkled with fun, 8 is great!

Santa Hats and Mix

December 23, 2010

(also known as “ohsure, i’ve got PLENTY of time for these shenanigans, the day before christmas eve”)

suuuuure, lemme drop my kiddo off for a short day of kindergarten and then go get supplies before i have to go back and get her.  because i’ve got NOTHING else going on.

so the hats – they are bugles dipped in red chocolate, white nonpareils with a marshmallow poked on the point.  flippin ADORABLE.

and quite tasty.

then in another bowl i mixed pretzels, corn chex, peanuts, craisins, and more bugles… just whatever was kicking around.  i melted some white chocolate and put it in the bowl and stirred it around.  after it dried on a cookie sheet, i broke up the mix and added the santa hats and holiday m&ms.  adorable and delicious.

aww, yeah.

i put a nice portion in some baggies and we’ll share them with some friendies tomorrow… if it lasts that long!

i got the info and the hairbrained idea right here last night, and i couldn’t think of anything else til i actually made them.  what an awesome and super cute idea!

more fun with shrinky dinks!
