sprinkles, sprinkles, & more sprinkles

This past weekend I hosted a party in celebration of my 22nd birthday! The party was good, but the preparation was even better. I decided on a confetti-sprinkle theme and may have taken it a little too far, but it was worth every second because I really enjoyed  planning , decorating, and baking everything for it.

I baked confetti-cake cookies, mini cupcakes, and dipped oreos in white chocolate and coated them with sprinkles.

I placed the straws in mason jars with sprinkles for an extra touch of cuteness. : )

I also had some rock candy laying around, so I put it in some wine glasses.

I cut circles out of tissue paper and put them inside clear balloons to create confetti filled balloons.

I had some confetti/sprinkle shaped garland hanging on the wall behind the balloons.

I rimmed some of my glasses with white chocolate and sprinkles and then made homemade butterbeer to pour in topped with whipped cream.

I had such a wonderful time planning and baking and a lovely time enjoying it with some of my closest friends. I hope this will inspire you to do something special for your next gathering, all it takes a little effort and an teeny tiny bit of creativity.

skyline themed card

A few weeks ago was my roommate, Neha’s,  birthday. I made a cute sign to hang on her door, so I thought I’d share that. As well as a Chicago skyline themed birthday card I made. (Her boyfriend actually commissioned me to make it for him to give to her, haha) Either way, I think it’s a pretty cool card and wanted to share!

For both the door decor and the birthday card, I only used a sharpie. It really shows how little you need to be creative. All you truly need is passion and inspiration.
