Princesses and Pirates

One of the main reasons I love my job is because I love the people I come in contact with who I would otherwise not have the opportunity to meet.  This beautiful Princess and Pirate Party was for a sweet little girl named Mayren who was definitely a princess in her own right.  It was held at Leu Gardens in Orlando, Florida so everything about it was going to be girly, but with the help of Stacy from Pinkadot Shop, we created the perfect setting for both princesses and pirates!

What I loved about this party was it was not your traditional pirate colors.  We matched the color scheme of the princesses but kept the boyish feel.  We added some pirate booty on the tables, mugs with blue striped straws and with the pirate silohuette printable, it all came together perfectly.

The princess tables were elegant, sparkley and PINK!  Perfectly fit for a PRINCESS!  Each table setting had a cup and saucer, gorgeous glass plate and a wand as an added touch!

The birthday princess was seated in a specially decorated throne just for her!

What a memorable day!

Spring Brownie Tutorial

Easter is just around the corner, and that is a great excuse to bake and craft!  Really though, do you need an excuse to do either?  Today I wanted to share the simplest tutorial for the most delicious brownies on the planet!  And if you're like me, you probably already have everything you need in your pantry right now.

Gather your mix brownies, oreos, and sprinkles!

Mix according to the box instructions, and try not to eat the batter, you will need
every drop to fill a 12 muffin pan.

First, spoon just enough batter to cover the bottom.

Place your oreo on top and cover with more batter!

Bake for 30 minutes and top with sprinkles.

And be ready for the sweet surprise thats inside!  Its that easy! 

Enjoy!  And Happy Spring!
