I hosted an Easter Egg hunt over the weekend.  The weather didn’t cooperate with sleet and rain causing activities to be moved in doors.  The children still enjoyed the indoor Easter egg hunt and egg coloring.

I put together a treat table that included purple Peeps chicks in a nest of Whopper Robin eggs sitting on top of green tinted coconut flakes.  The yellow Peeps bunnies were presented on skewers.  I covered spring Oreos with candy melts in shapes of elephants, bears, monkeys and lions.  My nephew loves Angry Birds so I made angry Chick cake pops for him.  There were also Butterfly shaped sugar cookies decorated in  blue, mint green, pink and yellow pastel colors with sprinkles.  Ring pops and blow pops were presented in jars.  The yellow chicks and bunny cupcakes tied in with the spring theme.  There were also bags of sour bunnies and more robin eggs.  Old left over jelly beans, gum balls, candy melts and nonpareils were made into trees for decorations.  I also used sugar ice cream cones to make cotton candy cones out of them.  There were also bags of popcorn and Annie’s bunny snacks.  Apple juice bottles were presented with the same labels courtesy of Magnolia Easter Collection template.  Each child went home with an Easter basket made especially for him or her.  The children left with treats and visions of spring to come.

Pin the Fun on Halloween

A last minute class party to put together left me looking for inspiration from a twist on a classic party game.  This time it was a class Halloween party where pin the tail Halloween themed games were needed.  In this case, I printed a pin the nose on the jack-o-lantern, pin the nose on the witch and pin the tail on the cat from the internet and mounted all three on a poster board for pin the fun on Halloween theme.

Halloween themed cupcakes with light orange butter cream frosting were topped with pumpkin and bat sprinkles presented on a pumpkin platter.  The cupcakes have pumpkin, witch, and cat toppers to tie in with the game.  A mini bucket is filled with candy corn and is perfect for holding the cupcake tag.

Cake pops and marshmallow pops have colored sprinkles and arranged in a bouquet with mini candy bars.  The pumpkin party bags are filled with candy and favors with candy corn and owl tags.

All the baked goods are wrapped in cellophane for the final presentation.

Baby Girl’s First Birthday Party

I had a day to put together treats for a treat table at a baby girl’s first birthday party.  There was no theme just a color scheme of pink.  It was a mad dash to incorporate items already available.  I made vanilla cupcakes with butter cream frosting and butterfly sprinkles.  The cupcake liners are muffin cups that go directly into the oven without need of a cupcake pan.  I tied white ribbon around the cupcakes for a little extra flair.  I already had cookie  cutters with a spring theme and decided to make butterfly shaped sugar cookies.  I sprinkled pink sugar and put them in a treat bag with the same white ribbon used on the cupcakes.  I coated marshmallows with white candy melts and sprinkled them with pastel sprinkles.  The end result reminded me of ice cream so I used ice cream glasses to display them in and used the remaining candy melts to fill the glasses.  I had pastel stickers with ducks, teddy bears and rabbits on them.  They provided a nice effect for the marshmallow pops’ final presentation.  Pink ribbons and tags described what each item was for guest.  Spring came a little earlier that day.

Halloween Themed Treat Table

No tricks just treats was the theme of this Halloween party.  The treat table included candy apples, Oreos, popcorn, pretzels, marsh mellow ghost pops,pumpkin cookies.  Jars and bowls were filled with Dum Dum pops, Smarties, Sour Patch, Skittles, and Swedish Fish.  There were also cups full of Franken Berry and Boo Berry cereal.  Cups of dirt with gummy worms were a big hit with the kids.  Pumpkin cupcakes with white chocolate and sour cream frosting provided a taste of fall.  Half  the cupcakes had skeleton sprinkles and skeleton cupcake wrappers.  The gift bags displayed the children’s initials and tied in with the theme of the skeleton cupcakes.

Car and Heart Shaped Sugar Cookies

Car-shaped and heart-shaped sugar cookies with red, blue and black sugar sprinkles.   Cookies are placed in bags with coordinating colored ribbons.

Teapot Baby Shower Gift

Baby shower gift idea of mini teapot and teabag.  The small teapot is good for one individual cup.  The gift tag reads, “baby is brewing” with a tea cup stamp.  The tea bag is in a mini bag with a plastic pacifier tied to it.
