The beginnings of our Garden Fairy Party

Where there is Joy, Laughter, and Color, Fairies will be found!

Introducing our new Garden Fairy Party! I'm making a few products for an upcoming party and I'm so excited to share them with you!  The pixie dust will be a craft station which mixes sugar, pink lemonade mix and star confetti.  I love it!  I also made the favor bags which will hold a little wand and some hair accessories.  This is the first time I tried my hand at the lollipop holders, and I was thrilled with how darn cute they turned out too!  I have a few other things I'll be making as well for this party, including napkin and cup rings, cupcake toppers and a table centerpiece.
The adorable model is my own daughter, Olivia, who was estatic that I asked her to put on a tutu and wings and dance around! 
I'm very excited for this upcoming party!  Thanks for letting me share!

A Trashy Party

Two posts in two days?!  Somebody stop me!  But this is a party I've wanted to share for a few weeks and I'm finally getting around to posting it. Check out this Garbage Truck Birthday Party, the perfect theme for a little boy turning 3.  The mother did a fabulous job combining Garbage Trucks with Oscar the Grouch with Recycling! 

These creative banners were made from newspaper and magazines that are probably sitting in your recycle bins too!

Baking doesn't get much easier than this! This cake was so simple yet so creative!  Crumpled up chocolate cake with a chocolate graham cracker path through the middle.  The fondant trucks were bought on etsy.

Think the cake would be hard to serve?  Not at all when you serve it in a trashcan and mix it with chocolate syrup! (Is that even legal?!)  YUMMY!!

The kids were fascinated by the garbage truck they got to see in action!  They each even got to put a piece of cardboard in the dumpster and watch the truck pick it up and load it overhead!  Everyone cheered!

When all the kids were tuckered out...(LOVE the sticker!)

Everyone collected their trash and hit the road!
