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 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.

fetch friends with flair

A little over a week ago I hosted a small get-together  with three of my best friends. We made yummy drinks, cooked fun snacks, and played some hilarious games. : )  I didn’t plan anything too fancy, but I added a few fun things to spice up the night and wanted to share them with you! photo 2

I had some plastic Martini glasses lying around so I set those out. While I was at target collecting some goodies for the night, I stumbled upon these adorable candy necklaces in the dollar section, so I just had to get them. I didn’t know how I would use them immediately, but as I was setting out the glasses I thought they would make great accents for the glasses!photo 1

Since there were only four of us, I decided to add a little more personalization by writing place cards for each of us. I got a bit carried away and added some pink confetti at the last second just to add something extra. It’s not the most elaborate or cute thing I’ve ever done, but it was fun and added some flair to a normal get-together.
