Gender Neutral Baby Shower Brunch

Let me preface this post with a disclaimer: I have never really been to a baby shower, let alone hosted one prior to this. Technically I went to one shower about 14 years ago, but 1) I don’t remember much, and 2) I don’t recall any baby shower ‘stuff’ – I think it was just some appetizers and present opening, so I don’t really...

Popcorn Box Cake Pops

I decided to make these at the last minute for a Red Carpet-themed birthday party I was throwing, and they turned out SO cute.  I was skeptical on the design as it involved a lot of drawing with a candy writer, but again, I just loved the finished product – totally worth a try regardless of your general artistic talents.

Actually, I think this was the only thing I obsessed over as I wasn’t super interested in the other details (I sort knew what I wanted, but didn’t need to micro-manage to make sure everything was...

Dried Lavender Place Cards

At some point while I was in the throws of all things wedding, I became mildly obsessed with the idea of using dried lavender for my table assignments. I quickly ruled out buying lavender because it rivals the price of gold. Seriously, everything I found was around $16 a “bunch”. I use the word “bunch” loosely though, as it would have made...
