90th Birthday Party Ideas


Ninety is a big age milestone.  I can’t imagine what it must be like to have experienced ninety wonderful years of life. It’s definitely a cause for celebration.  When we decided a number of months ago to throw my grandmother a 90th surprise birthday party, I was excited to have the honor of styling the dessert table and designing the […]

Chocolate Drizzled Coconut Macaroon Nest Cookies


I love coconut macaroon cookies.  Not to be confused with their spelling cousin macarons, coconut macaroons are definitely a dessert that I can tackle in the kitchen.  Their sweet pillowly goodness of coconut, vanilla, and egg whites (lots of egg whites) baked into a mountain melts in your mouth. When I hosted my recent party, […]

Tweet! Tweet! A DIY Spring Birdhouse for Your Dessert Table


I am so excited to be styling my first dessert table for my grandmother’s 90th surprise birthday party this week. I did say surprise, but since she doesn’t read blogs, I think it’s safe to talk about it. The theme I chose for the party is Birds and Blooms. To add some bird elements, I’ve been […]

St. Patrick’s Day Push Pops


The minute I saw my first cake push pop, I knew I had to create some.  It’s exciting to think about devouring the perfect proportion of cake and icing in one single bite.  Plus, cake push pops look so pretty at a party.  It’s another fun way to integrate the party’s colors into the desserts. […]

Flakilicious Gum and Free Winter Candy Circles Printable


I think the fact that the crocuses are blooming and the trees revealed flower buds yesterday means that spring has arrived early.  I hope, considering that it’s the beginning of March, that some of you are still enjoying the last bit of winter.  I love winter.  From hitting the ski slopes to warming up with hot cocoa afterwards, I think it’s […]

I recently came across a candy bracelets kit when I was searching for Valentine’s Day baking supplies. They brought back found memories of buying candy necklaces and bracelets at the candy store. There was a childhood thrill of munching on your jewelry for the afternoon. I also loved the convenience of not having to search […]
