Keri Jill is 8 August is an unbelievably busy time of year for us. I think most of the activity is beginning to wind down. Jill and family headed back to New York last night but not before joining in the fun of Keri Jill's 8th birthday party. For some fun and inexpensive decorations, I made tissue pom-poms and streamers. Pinterest was my inspiration (follow link to see pom-pom's streamers, sunflower, fruit kabobs and piped butterflies). I went to my paper stash and used my one-and-only paper punch to make the streamers. After punching the scalloped circles, I simply machine stitched varying lengths and then thumb tacked them to the ceiling. Getting the room ready the day before The Birthday Girl arrives with her guests They ate, made a craft (next post) painted their nails, opened presents and had birthday cupcakes! Make a wish, Keri... hope all your dreams come true! Cheese & Grapes Sunflower (see Pinterest link above) I sliced a block of cheddar cheese into 1/4-inch slices and cut each slice diagonally.

Inspirami - RECEPT: Världens godaste chokladrutor Det här är det absolut godaste receptet jag vet på chokladrutor, jag vet inte var jag har fått det från men jag har haft det uppskrivet hur länge som helst. Jag tänkte att jag skulle åka och hälsa på på jobbet i veckan, det känns som att det var hur länge sen som helst som jag var där sist så jag tänkte ta med mig lite fika och vad passar väl bättre än den här.

How to Make a Cupcake Tower » Annie's Eats How to Make a Cupcake Tower A couple of months ago I posted about the Dr. Seuss-themed party I threw for my little man’s second birthday. In that post, I included pictures of a cupcake tower I constructed for the event. Let me say right off the bat that this method is simply a rough guideline. First, let’s talk about what we need: First, I prepare the base by hot gluing the styrofoam discs together in an even column. I glue together both cardboard circles of the same size, unfinished sides inward… To end up with a double layer. Repeat with the remaining sizes until all the cardboard circles are doubled up. I trace around each of the cardboard circles onto the card stock that will cover them and cut out the corresponding circle. Hot glue the card stock circle onto the cardboard circle to cover it and give it a finished look. Three pretty covered circles :) Now I use additional card stock to cover the soup cans that will act as the pillars. Do the same for the base.

How To Tuesday: Bouquet of Tulips. 12Jul/11 When I made my Chocolate Banana Cinnamon Muffins I got a lot of questions about how to make your own tulip baking cups. I described it briefly in the recipe but I thought it would be better if I just showed you. You can buy tulip baking cups but why bother spending money on something that you can make for next to free? Cut parchment paper into squares 2 – 3 inches wide. Continue until you've filled the muffin tin with the sweet tulip baking cups. Make sure to drop in tomorrow to see just how to properly use these adorable liners. I'll give you a hint. Brownie Pops to Cheesecake Pops: Things on a Stick taste Better Posted on September 14, 2010 by Christina Why do some things taste better when they’re on a stick? Maybe it’s the novelty that makes them fun – or the fact that you don’t have to get your fingers all sticky and buttery. I rounded up a few good things on sticks for you to drool over. All would be perfect for a wedding – especially if you’re still a kid at heart. Let’s start with Bakerella’s Poptarts on a stick. Brownie pops. Cookies on a stick from I am Mommy. Pie on a stick. Cheesecake on a stick.
