Gwynn Wasson is kind enough to share another easy and cute way to spruce up your Valentine celebrations!  This would be perfect for a low-key, special treat with the kids- or for center stage on a dessert table!

 Isn’t that cute?

For this project you will need the following…

– 2 8″ inch cookie sticks
– 5 candy covered heart-shaped pretzels
– 1/8″ ribbon
– 1/4″ ribbon
– scissors
– cupcakes or cake
– hot glue

And, of course, chocolate pretzels found at grocery stores and other large chain stores~

1. Cut a length of the 1/8″ ribbon and tie two of the pretzels together~

2. Repeat step 1 until all of the pretzels are connected…

3. Take one of the cookie sticks and the 1/8″ ribbon. Put a dab of glue on the end of the ribbon.

Adhere the ribbon to the stick and twist the stick winding the ribbon around the stick. When you reach the end of the stick, trim the ribbon. Add a dab of glue to the end of the ribbon and adhere the end of the ribbon to the stick.
4. Take the 1/4″ ribbon and weave it through the center of one of the end pretzels. Add a dab of glue to the end of the ribbon and adhere the end of the ribbon to your stick.
5. Leave about an inch of ribbon between the pretzel and the stick. Loop the other end of the ribbon over to the stick. Trim the ribbon to length. Add a dab of glue to the end of the ribbon and adhere it to the stick.
6. Cut a length of your 1/4″ ribbon and tie it into a bow. Add a dab of glue to the 1/4″ ribbon adhered to the stick and attach the bow.
7. Repeat steps 3-6 for the other stick.
8. Secure the bunting in your cake or cupcakes.
What an easy way to add a little pizzazz to your party!  Thank you for sharing, Gwynn!

Celebrating your birthday with a Mexican Fiesta is a sure way to have a great time!  My daughter and several of her friends had a ball with all of the bright colors and (hopefully) vivid memories of a beautiful party day full of fun!  Planning all of the party ideas and details was loads of fun- although we don’t claim to have everything authentically perfect- this is our take on a party that combines Mexican birthday party ideas with a young girl’s likes and wishes!  For instance, we know hedgehogs don’t hail from Mexico- but when she fell in love with a festive-looking hedgehog at a local shop, we decided the hedgehog would make a perfectly fun party favor!  So read on and enjoy- and hopefully you will find an idea or two that you can use for a Mexican-themed party or even a Cinco de Mayo celebration, too- and inspiration to incorporate ideas that make your party perfectly-suited for the birthday child! 


There is nothing like the bright colors and happy prints of Lilly Pulitzer to make every day feel like a party!  For my daughter’s 12th birthday party, she wanted to decorate cakes~ Lilly-style!  So, in order to decide how to mesh the two, I kept thinking “if Lilly had a cake shop instead of a juice stand”… I have to admit, this was one fun party to plan!  It is a blast to see where ideas go in the hands of a TWEEN!  Enjoy and remember, “…being happy never goes out of style!”. 


What began as a simple gesture to introduce my daughter to a wonderful book series has become a special evening ritual for us- reading Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House books!  I must admit, I didn’t realize quite how interesting these books would be to her, but she cannot wait to read all nine in the series.  It was only fitting that her birthday party focus around Little House on the Prairie!  Together, we had a ball planning all of the details of her party that related to the books in some way.  At Camille’s request, we focused on some of her favorite parts of the stories… prairie flowers, covered wagons, tee pees, the colors in the drawings of the books,  and “pretty”…because “Ma” liked things to be pretty!


How cute, fun, and EASY!  I love these adorable spider poms from Candy at The Party Bakery!  Candy shares step-by-step how to make these spiderific decorations to add to your Halloween fun!
