Black Cat Cupcakes - Val Event Gal

I’m getting ready for Halloween and what says Halloween more than black cats? Some people think of black cats as unlucky but I think they are cute! I had a mostly black cat when I was a kid. My parents let me pick out a cat when I was 5. Parents, do not let your kids get a pet unless you really want it to. My parents learned that the hard way. I named the cat Sarah because they told us it was a girl and I wanted a girl cat. Then we took her to get fixed and they told us Sarah was a Sam, meaning it was a boy cat. Then we called him Sammy. That cat was a bit of nightmare. He loved to bite and hated people. Most cats don’t like too many people but this one hated everyone. Except my mom, she spoiled him rotten and he loved her. In the end Sammy ended up being her cat. Seriously, don’t let a 5 year old pick out a pet they will never take care of it like they promise.  He was a pretty black cat though. I am not superstitious at all I think a black cat is just a cute cat. These black cat cupcakes are the perfect combination of creepy and cute! That is usually the goal for Halloween with a four year old a bit of creepy but still cute. My daughter thought they looked like owls, which you could do too just without the ears it’s an owl. read more

Unicorn Party Horns made out of party hats! Easy to make unicorn horns, cute for a unicorn party. - Val Event Gal

Continuing my unicorn love today I will be showing you how to turn party hats into unicorn party horns! I got these party hats from Target because when you are at Target you always come back with the essentials. Toilet paper, snacks, a piñata, party hats, some throw pillows, a pretty plate, toys and then raid the dollar sections. Who doesn’t need a more pretty straws and baskets?! I need to ban myself from Target because it is not pretty. I have no self-control there. I also give myself excuses to go there when I don’t need to because I can’t get laundry detergent at the grocery store, right?! I’m trying to budget but Target is always my splurge place! I need to have a little fun though and that is where I have my fun. I guess I am really an adult since plates and pillows are my play time! Target has really done a good job with their party decorations lately.  Love their party hats and they have cute diy banners. I got these white and gold party hats because I just had to have them! I knew I would find some uses for them and turning them into unicorn horns is obviously a logical use, right? I still have some left for dinner parties or any other occasion. Yes, I expect my dinner party guests to wear party hats. Now lets make these unicorn party horns! read more
