Colorful Spring Chocolate Bark

| Uncategorized

Chocolate bark in colorful spring colors

Spring is in the air and that means bright colors all around. The flowers are blooming and I just love this time of year. In Phoenix I think spring starts a bit earlier than the rest of the country. Here it’s in the 90’s and other places are having snow storms. Even if it isn’t quite outdoor entertaining time you can still make some fun colorful spring chocolate bark with kids. I happen to have a bunch of bright colors of candy melts that I needed to use up. I used white, orange, and green. These colors kind of remind me of a retro vibe. When I was a kid my grandparents still had the retro shag carpet in these bright colors. They also are fun for spring! Next time I think I will use pink, yellow, and orange. Then I topped them with colorful sprinkles and that is all that is needed. I am still trying to perfect the art of making colorful chocolate. It’s an art in my mind. Since I have made mistakes I will share what they are and what you can do differently. read more

Easter Bunny Lollipops

Bunny Lollipops

It’s bunny time of year! I made these little bunny lollipops to celebrate Easter. I can’t decide which are cuter these are my Easter Chick Lollipops. Let me know which ones you like better. These are a fun craft to make with kids for Easter. You can also put them in Easter baskets. What are the rules for the Easter bunny is it supposed to be the Easter bunny that brings a basket or can kids know it’s the parents? I get confused from holiday to holiday what my daughter believes. She just lost a tooth and she is so excited about the tooth fairy. I love it but she keeps asking questions. Then I forget what I already told her. I fall into the rabbit hole of well, rabbit lies and fairy lies. However, I think there is something wonderful and magical about these imaginary creatures. I wish I still believed in as many things as my daughter. Anyways getting back on track, these Easter bunny lollipops are the cutest. They are simple to make and kids can make them themselves to give to friends. Well maybe with a little help depending on their age. read more

Plastic Tablecloth Floating Flowers

| Uncategorized

I’m going to get real with you about this post. I wanted to come up with ideas with things I had in my craft supplies. I’ve been cleaning things out because we just moved. Some stuff I wanted to keep in case I had some use for them in the future. I hate to waste anything and because of that I have hoarded random craft supplies. I had one pink plastic table cloth that has no purpose. A while ago I saw on Pinterest someone had use plastic table cloths to make floating flowers in the pool. I have no idea wear that post was from but I wanted to create my own floating pool flowers. These aren’t the prettiest flowers ever but with a bunch of them I think they would look so pretty in the pool for a party! Also just for an outdoor party. These plastic tablecloth floating flowers are a simple diy decoration that no one will expect. I made 3 of them with one table cloth. These table cloths I got in a pack of two from the dollar store. If you had 5 packs of them you could make 30 flowers! I can tell you how to make them even prettier than my attempt. read more

15 Simple Party Cleaning Tips

15 Simple Party Cleaning Tips!

I would say my least favorite part of throwing parties is the clean up! More like my least favorite party of life is cleaning. I’m not afraid to say it, I don’t like cleaning, but it is a necessary evil. When you throw a party sadly after all the fun you have to clean up the mess. Since I am a blogger that focuses heavily on parties I know a thing or two about making glittery confetti messes. I am creating things on a daily basis and with that comes tiny pretty messes. Since making messes comes more naturally to me than cleaning them up I have come up with some shortcuts and ways to make the cleaning party a bit easier. I also have thrown enough parties to figure out what does and doesn’t work with the clean up. You can see my messes above, that top picture sure has a lot of dirt haha. In Arizona we get these lovely dust storms that bring massive amounts of dust all around, I decided that dust needed some confetti on top. My bottom more Instagram friendly mess picture I was playing around with confetti while wearing my unicorn slippers! Grown women need unicorn slippers too! I never outgrew my love for fairies, unicorns, and mermaids. Luckily I had a daughter so I can still play with all those silly fun things. Those are just a few of my many party messes that I have made and had to clean up! read more

Sparkly Candle Centerpiece

With New Years and winter around the corner I want to add some sparkle to everything. I am all decorated for Christmas and I added plenty of sparkly snowflakes to my decor. Of course I didn’t think about how messy the sparkles could be so now my place is covered in glitter. These sparkly centerpiece ideas are no mess because I used glitter washi tape! Plus I got the materials from the dollar store. Cheap, easy, and sparkly without the mess.

For the Candles I wrapped gold washi tape around led tea lights. Don’t use regular candles unless you are just wrapping the very bottom. read more
