DIY hot cocoa bar (and shopping list)

hot cocoa bar

I think that every winter party might just need a hot cocoa bar. Warm, cozy and delicious- I can’t think of a time that a buffet of hot chocolate wouldn’t be a party favorite. The hot cocoa bar at the Chocolate Shower was definitely a highlight (and I will be adding this little feature to […]

My sister-in-law, Tricia, and I share a fond affection for macaroons. And ice cream. And oreos. And a whole list of other fabulous sweet treats.

panda birthday party

So this party happened in June. And we’re just getting the pictures up now. Better late than never, right? Have I mentioned that I love it when Jordan and I have the chance to throw parties together?

Decked out in some sprinkle accessories- a sprinkle barrette and sprinkle corsage- the birthday girl […]

With my love for all things Cake Pop (and their frequent party appearances), I’ve been meaning to come up with a quick and easy (and cheap!) DIY Cake Pop Stand for awhile now. After putting a few functional-yet-easy-on-the-eyes cake pop stands together for Adam’s grad party, I’m sorry I waited so long to make them. […]

angry birds birthday party

You guys are probably better parents than we are- you probably don’t hand over your cell phone/iPod/iPad to bribe your Smooches with Angry Birds. But we do. And so Burke has deep love and great enthusiasm for Angry Birds Rio (and Letter School… and Cut the Rope… I could go on, but I won’t). Of […]
