Party Like A Pineapple

I am so anxious for summer! I blame the crazy cold temps that blew into our area this week (and the upcoming arrival of our baby boy!). Summer seasonal merchandise has hit the stores and I am seeing pineapples everywhere! 

I have always loved pineapples and I think it's such a great party theme. The symbolism of pineapples is great too... it means "Welcome"!

I felt my shop needed some pineapples, so I added gold pineapple plates, confetti and cupcake toppers!


I added these gold pineapple cupcake toppers to the shop yesterday!

You can find this matching gold pineapple confetti in 
the shop too!


These fun gold foil pineapple party plates are also in the shop! You can find them here.

Party like a pineapple!

April Fools' Day

Did you see Polar Seltzer's April Fools' Day prank? They released a new flavor for April called Unicorn Kisses and said they were changing their logo to a unicorn! I loved the design, so I grabbed a bottle when I saw it in our supermarket a few weeks ago... little did I know that they were hard to find and people are searching for them!

Shop news: I added this new lighter lavender engagement ring drink marker to the shop today! That part is not a joke, you can find them here!

(Unicorn) Kisses,

Lucky Charms Baby Shower


I received a custom request for a baby shower with the most unique and fun theme I had heard in awhile... LUCKY CHARMS!

They asked me to create cupcake toppers to go with the theme so I created toppers in the shapes of the marshmallows. 


I also made toppers that read "Mommy's Lucky Charm" :)

Hope everyone has a wonderful time celebrating little Prince or Princess Charming!

Happy Easter Deviled Eggs


I saw this idea on Pinterest and decided to give it a whirl. Luckily it wasn't a Pinterest fail!

This was super easy because my husband helped me and because of one super secret time saving thing we did. What did we do? Shhhhh... we bought precooked, peeled hard boiled eggs. So no boiling eggs, and no peeling! 


To make them we just followed our favorite deviled egg recipe. The only added extra step is dying the eggs.

To dye the eggs, we put a half cup of water in 4 small bowls, and 3 drops of food coloring. The water looked dark but the eggs still come out a nice pastel color!

We let each of the eggs sit in the water for about 20 seconds and then took them out and set them on a paper towel to let the excess dye drip off.

Make sure to flip the egg over so that the both sides dry off. It only takes about 30 seconds for the eggs to dry and be ready for filling.

My husband, made the filling and put it into a piping bag. He then piped the filling into the colored eggs. It's easy and gives a nice finished look, but if you don't feel like piping, you can just spoon the filling into the eggs.


Our pretty finished eggs!

I put them on an oval platter for serving because I thought it looked like a giant Easter egg!

Happy Easter!

Gender Reveal Party For Baby T


This past weekend my husband and I hosted a very small get together for some of our family.... to announce the gender of our BABY!

Our first baby, Samardzija Puppy, anxiously waiting to hear if she is going to have a brother or sister.





A close up of the onesies hanging on the chandelier. 

We hung our ultrasound photos with mini clothespins over the punch bar. I made two flavors of punch. They were supposed to be pink and blue but they turned out a little more red and green than I had hoped... They both still tasted delicious though!


I made a gender reveal cake for the party. Usually you ask the ultrasound tech to put the gender in an envelope, and you give it to a baker so that you yourself don't know the gender until you cut the cake. But my husband and I both wanted to hear the gender directly from the doctor. The cake reveal was just for our family.

I purchased a pink and aqua sprinkle mix from Sweetapolita to decorate the outside of the cake. The mix was called Jersey Shore :) The inside of the cake would be either pink or blue.






My mother-in-law cut the cake...

and...

it was.....



BLUE!!!

WE ARE HAVING A BOY!!! 

Samardzija can't wait to meet her baby brother!

We are all very excited, and time seems to be flying by! Baby T will be here so very soon!
