Mimosa Popsicles

| Brunch, Drink

Mimosa Popsicles. These adult popsicles are tasty for a brunch pool party and refreshing to cool off in summer!jpg

I love brunch and mimosas. I could really eat breakfast food at all times. We do breakfast for dinner sometimes because you can never have too much breakfast food. Also because I am not much of a chef and some breakfast foods are easy. Brunch is always a good option for having people over with kids, my late night days are over. Of course for brunch you have to have mimosas. I love mimosas! They are such a refreshing drink and the only acceptable way to drink before noon. In the summer in Arizona I have a problem keeping mimosas cold enough. You do not want a warm mimosa. That is where the mimosa popsicles comes in. They are even more refreshing than a regular mimosa. You can serve them at a pool party and everyone will love them! Obviously this is not a kids popsicle but you can have juice pops for kids too. Momma needs a popsicle every once in a while. I also need a little adult brunch time!

How to Make an Awesome Ice Cream Sandwich Bar

| Desserts, DIY, Ice Cream

How to make an awesome and easy Ice Cream Sandwich Bar! Guests can build their own ice cream sandwiches with this easy ice cream sandwich bar.

I am on an ice cream kick this week and what could be better than an ice cream sandwich bar?! This is an easy dessert bar for guests at a summer party. I love bars for parties. You can have mimosa bars, taco bars, bar bars, sandwich bars, candy bars and many others, the possibilities are endless. What I love about a food bar is that people get to choose how they want their food because everyone likes it a little bit different. It is also less work for the host. You put out some ingredients and you are done! The best kind of bars involve sweets in my opinion.

Oreo Ice Cream Sandwiches

| Desserts, Ice Cream

Oreo Icea Cream Sandwiches are the perfect little tasty crunchy cookie filled with creamy ice cream!

Ice cream is one of my favorite desserts. In the summer it is number one on my list! This is the time of year to indulge in sweet treats. Swimsuit season is halfway over go crazy ;)! These are perfect little bites to serve for a group or just to make with kids. You can eat just one and not feel too bad because it is smaller than a normal ice cream sandwich. I loved how the Oreo ice cream sandwiches turned out and will definitely be making them again. They were really easy to make but they did take longer to make than to eat. That is my problem with desserts they seem to just disappear.

Food and drink labels are a cute touch to add to any kind of party.These diy party food labels are really simple to make for parties. These colors are fun for girls nights, bachelorette parties or bridal showers. I like to have bright colors but you can use any color combination. You can make a full food menu if you are having a more formal meal. I love the little foil paper accents on these! You can see that my hand writing is not the best but I still wrote on them to show that they can still look cute with fancy hand lettering. I will also tell you different combinations you can use to make them extra cute!

Cactus Garden Cupcakes

I love the succulent and cactus trend right now for parties. Living in the desert it makes it an easy trend to follow! These cactus garden cupcakes are simple to make and adorable for parties. A cactus is really the only kind of plant I can keep alive so I am fond of them. Putting a couple of these simple toppers on each cupcake turns it into a little succulent or cactus garden. You can also use the toppers for other party foods like appetizers and cheese.

What you need to make them:

DIY Emoji Party Favor Tags

I love emojis! I may over use them just a tad when I’m texting though. Sometimes words can’t express what an emoji can! Emoji parties are a fun trend right now and they are perfect for tween/teen parties. I will show you how to make these adorable emoji party favor tags and give a few ideas for party favors. Teen party favors are really tricky because bubbles and bouncy balls no longer cut it(although I’m an adult and I like bubbles haha)!

White Chocolate Covered Fruit Kabobs

White Chocolate Covered Fruit Kabobs

For summer I love having desserts with fruit in them. I also like a simple dessert. These white chocolate covered fruit kabobs with rainbow sprinkles are perfect for a simple refreshing dessert! I chose rainbow colored fruits to give a pop of color. I also didn’t put all the kinds of fruit on one kabob because some people like different fruits. You could do a bunch of combinations of fruit too to give variety. I like them separated and how they look all lined up by color. I also toyed around with the idea of colorful candy melts for the chocolate drizzle but decided white chocolate with colorful sprinkles would look good. If you have a theme and a certain color you want to use you can add a colorful chocolate drizzle! I was thinking of orange, pink or another bright color. I also think colorful sprinkles are a nice touch for parties!

Under the Sea Fruit

| kids, Mermaid party, Pineapples

Under the Sea Fruit

I’m always trying to make fruits and vegetables more enticing for my daughter. She likes fruit, vegetables she wont do unless there is ranch involved. I’ve found she likes fruit better when I make it into something cute. I also like to use candy eyes whenever I can. Everything is cuter with candy eyes. You don’t have to put candy eyes on all of the fruit like I did(I know it’s a bit much) but a few of them Is cute! I thought for summer under the sea fruit would be cute for fun and parties.

Chocolate Firework Pops! Anyone can make this adorable dessert for 4th of July

If you have visited my bloggy before you might know I like candy melts. I like making cute desserts and most of them don’t involve a ton of baking or complicated baking. I’m a shallow baker like that because it has to look pretty. Luckily when you work with something like candy melts it tastes yummy and they are really easy to work with. These chocolate firework pops require zero back and are really fun for the 4th of July! If you want to do some baking you can use them as toppers for cupcakes. You can also buy store bought cupcakes(I wont tell) and top them with these fun fireworks!
