Easter Egg Hunt

Last Sunday we threw an Easter Egg Hunt for the kids. It was such a blast to plan AND put together on party day! It is so touching to see the smiles on their little faces and even recieve a special thanks!









I used the TomKat Easter Printable Collection for all the labelling and used the drink flag printable from the collection to cover the chocolate bunnies.







I spotted this bunny cake online and knew I had to make one for the party. You can find the directions here. The bunny ears were made out of gumpaste and allowed them to dry a few days before the party.





The easter tree was made from branches we found on a field trip out in the country. The easter egg decorations were found at a local dollar store as were the bunnies, little wooden crate, the little birds and nest.







I made the sugar cookies and covered them with fondant. The 'egg nest' coconut macaroons were made from a recipe I found at No Fuss Fabulous.

I thought this floral garland that was posted at Thoughtfully Simple was fabulous! You could use this for a garden party, a wedding or even to celebrate Easter. For the instructions go to Once Wed.

Train Party - Part Two



Train Party - Jadon's 3rd Birthday

This past weekend we celebrated my son's 3rd birthday. Here are some snapshots from the celebration...













We made the banner and labels for the dessert buffet





We gave out train whistles for favors and used Dimpleprints party circles to adorn the favors and dessert buffet treat bags



I also made a second train cake for my birthday boy. He loved it!

Shamrock Shake

It was tradition when I was a child to go to the neighborhood McDonald's and get a Shamrock shake every St. Patrick's Day. A few years back they discontinued my favorite shake. Since then I have been making my own version.

Ingredients:
2 cups Vanilla Ice Cream
1/4 cup Low Fat Milk
1/4 tsp peppermint extract
Green food coloring

Directions:
In a blender combine milk, ice cream, extract and a few drops of food coloring. Blend to desired consistency. Pour into malt glass. Serve immediately and enjoy!
