~Snow Queen 5th Birthday Party~

My daughter, Torance turned 5 years old December 5th, so of course planning the most spectacular party for her was on the top of my list!
This fancy December birthday party was fit for a "Snow Queen" turning 5 years old! Ruby red, purple and lavender colors with sparkly accents made this party shiny and unforgettable. Snowflake shaped sandwiches, red grapes and cran-raspberry juice were served to the guests. The dessert table was almost completely edible with mini red velvet cupcakes swirled with lavender buttercream frosting, red velvet cake pops with sparkly purple candy coating, red licorice sticks and matching m & m candies. Sparkly snowflakes, shiny ribbon, purple organza, bling rhinestone accents were some of the finishing touches added to make this party "all girl"! I made sparkly red and purple tutus for each princess guest, silver tiaras and purple necklaces were also included in the party favors. Designing this party was so much fun and I loved joining the beautiful ruby red and grape purple colors and elements making her birthday magical!

Dessert Table for Graysen's 1st Birthday!

This is a dessert table I did for an adorable 1 year old named Graysen! I loved working with the color theme of orange and baby blue which I accented with a dark brown and it turned out really nice. I created and made the coordinating toppers and a banner for the birthday boy! I made 2 types of cupcakes, a dark chocolate cupcake and a vanilla cupcake both topped with vanilla buttercream frosting! It was a fun table to create and design! Thank you Anderson family for letting me be a part of Graysen's special day!

Dessert Table for Kenna's 4th Birthday Party!

I created a dessert table for my friend's daugther's 4th birthday party. Kenna is as sweet as can be, so I focused on making this dessert table pink and girly! Chocolate cupcakes with pink buttercream frosting and delicious vanilla Cake Pops with glittery sugar crystals were the delicious treats at this lucky girl's party! Angelyn created the adorable pink & chocolate toppers. I was told the kids at the party LOVED the Cake Pops!

Baby Boy Shower Cupcakes!

Here are some adorable cupcakes I made for a baby shower. The color theme was baby blue and chocolate, so Angelyn made toppers to complete the look. They were a hit!

4th of July weekend...

I made strawberry cupcakes (I added edible silver stars for a little holiday sparkle too) for the brave volunteer fire fighters of Big Lake this year. They organize and put on a spectacular firework show every year. They work hard all year, so this was the least I could do for them. The cupcakes were definitely a hit! I also added a picture of the adorable planter my mother-in-law gave me. Plants in fire boots...aren't they adorable? Happy 4th of July!!!

A Tractor Birthday Party!

This 2 year old boy's Tractor Birthday party was like no other! Right down to the unique details of custom made paper die-cuts of tractors to the clever party favors. I used wheat grass as decor and for the centerpieces on top of adorable custom blue and white table cloths. Straw farmer hats were the party hats of choice for this party! I served pulled chicken BBQ sandwiches, potato salad, fruit skewers and PB & J sandwiches in the shape of tractors for the kids. The dessert table showcased a royal blue tractor holding up the birthday boy's "2" topper on his cupcake. Dark chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream were topped with crushed cookies for the "dirt" element. They were delish! The party favors were chocolate chips and gummy worms in adorable cellophane bags that read "Life's short...EAT DIRT!". The party favors were secured at the front door with clothes pins so each child could grab a bag as they left the party. This creative party wouldn't have been possible without Angelyn Harris who created and made all the paper banners, signs, die-cuts, etc. and Pam Schutte who made the cute table cloths. Thank you ladies! Also, some of the photos were provided by the very talented photographer, Dennis Dow.

How Sweet It Is
