Doc McStuffins Birthday

One of my friends recently had her daughter’s birthday party and the theme was Doc McStuffins!  So cute!  She even made her own pinata.  It was all quite impressive actually and the themed activities were the best!  Such an inventive person she is!

Shabby Chic Diaper Cake

I have a relative who is having a baby shower soon and I was asked to create a diaper cake for her.  I’ve never done one before (believe it or not) so I had to figure it out through trial and error.  The theme was already assigned and it was Grey and Pink Shabby Chic.  That theme is not really my forte, but I gave it a go!

I think it came out looking a little more elegant and blingy than shabby chic, but hey, I can’t win them all!

Angry Birds Birthday

For those who follow my blog, you know I usually put a lot of time and effort into my children’s birthday parties.  My son’s 5th birthday party fell a little short.  Not because I wasn’t willing to put in the effort, but because the venue he chose happened to be very restrictive.  Normally I bring in tons of extra stuff (goodies, vegi tray, fruit tray, specialty items) but this place did not allow anything except cake, ice cream and water.  Period.  What a let down!  Well, anyway, without further adieu, or otherwise known as excuse making, here are the photos of the party:

This cake was beautifully and deliciously crafted by Cakes-4-All in Carrollton.

And somehow, I failed to take a picture of the birthday table as a whole, but around the cake, we had wall stickers and hanging decorations.

And we had these amazingly cute goodie bags made by Fun Party Crafts who has a store on eBay.  These super cute bags were such a hit with the kids.  They are hand made with foam paper.

Christmas Table Decorations

This year I found a very sweet idea for a Christmas table decorating plan on Pinterest.  It consisted of hanging Christmas ornaments from your chandelier.  I stole the idea and with a few coordinating items, presented the following table to my guests:

The decorations are fairly simple silver and cream (to match my already existing china).

Adorable Snowman Cookies

I found these adorable snowman cookies on Pinterest and made them for a winter ladies cocktail event.

Snowman Cookies

They are super cute and fairly easy to make.  I bought small tubes of pre-made icing just to make it easier, but that is not required.  They are made from white chocolate covered Oreos which you can find at the store during the winter months.  The hats are made from blue icing and then dipped in various colors of sprinkles.  The eyes, nose and mouth are created using a writing tip.  I found the original idea tagged on Pinterest from this link (which also happen to be a re-post from somewhere else):

Winter Snowmen

The idea matched very nicely with my snowman glasses!

It also perfectly blended together with a special cocktail I found on Pinterest which I will explain in more detail in a separate post.
