saucy's sprinkles (bloggedy blog blog): {simply} sweet saucy's sprinkles (bloggedy blog blog): {simply} sweet It's so simple, it's silly. Everyone has probably seen it or done it already, but Saucy just felt like stuffing her raspberries with dark chocolate and white chocolate chips today. As if the raspberries weren't sweet enough. They're cute on their own or they'd be even cuter on ice cream. What about making a white chocolate raspberry ice cream and garnishing it with some of these little fellas?
For Easter I made papier-mache polka dotted eggs. I created them using small water balloons and tissue paper then I filled them with candy and toys and sealed them shut. The egg can hold a surprising amount of candy and the tissue paper seems delicate making for a delightfully heavy and yet fragile object, much like real egg. Also like a real egg you have to break the shell to get at what’s inside. I like things you have to destroy to open. papier-mache easter eggs

Train Birthday Party + Balloon Extravaganza! Train Birthday Party + Balloon Extravaganza! Inspired by her son’s love for trains, Jaime from YourBASH! created one super fun RIDE for his birthday celebration this year… and for all of his pint-sized PARTY TRAIN passengers too! In addition to taking a ride on the adorable “Mini Express“, guests got to “stop” at fun Temporary Tattoo and “Make a Balloon” STATIONS. And speaking of balloons, there’s some seriously crazy-cool balloon art going on at this party… from the balloon artist’s creations to the fabulous giant balloon centerpieces, which really helped to fill the space and create a playful, kid-friendly vibe. Other favorite details include the train-shaped lollipop favors, napkin rolls embellished with “Chew Chew” printables, and water bottles labeled “Chugga Chugga“! I also love how the carnival-inspired food stations were lined up in a manner to look like a train… very clever!

Tutorial | next to nicx One of my all time favourite wardrobe items is a silk and cashmere cardigan by Alana Hill that I’ve owned for about 7 years (bought when Alana Hill still made luxurious garments and not the disappointing polyester items you find now). I’ve worn it until it’s almost falling apart. My favourite part of it? Tutorial | next to nicx

DIY Bubble Gum Machines For A Kids Party Bubble gum machines are perfect things to put on a table for a kids party. You can put a bunch of them with different gumballs and your kids and their friends would be happy. To make one such machine you’ll need a terra cotta pot, a wooden ball, a wooden doll pin stand, a tube of E600 glue or hot glue, a round bubble bowl and a can of bright spray paint. Instructions The first thing you need to do is to paint your pot, base, wooden ball and doll pin. When they are dry place the painted pot upside down and attach the round bubble bowl to it using glue.
I love paper Christmas decorations, so when I bumped into The Cheese Thief's woven paper ball tutorial, I had to give it a try. They're curiously addicting. Maybe I should carry some supplies with me to pass the time in long check-out lines, boring holiday parties, or during that weird Choreography number in White Christmas.

FIESTA mini flags For english summary, see end of post. Det er ikke alltid så mye som skal til! En liten detalj kan virkelig gjøre en festlig forskjell - som disse anvendelige miniflaggene til å feste på stetter, sugerør og annet (for eksempel mat/cupcake-flagg). MERK: Flaggene er ment for gøy/pynt! Fargen vil flyte utover dersom flaggene blir fuktige, og fargeflekker på fingre (og barnetøy?) kan forekomme.
