Happy Mardi Gras!!!!!!!!!!!

I wish I could be in the streets of New Orleans catchin' beads! But, my co-workers and I had a lot of fun food today at work and since I have been cookie-ing, I have never got to make Mardi Gras cookies, so this was the perfect opportunity. I may need to buy me a cutter set next masks were a little off LOL
Happy Fat Tuesday everyone! Go out and have some fun!

Valentine Fun Re-Cap

I have never had a Valentine's party....and since my kids are only little once, I decided to do something simple and have an Ice Cream Social. It was a lot of fun and I did a pretty good job keeping things simple. I also got to put my big jars to use!
I wrapped the cones in V'day scrapbook paper, dipped the waffle cones/bowls in chocolate and loaded them up w/ lots of V'day sprinkles

Look at the little wooden spoons I found at Williams Sonoma! They were so cute, here's a close-up:
And of course, I got to have lots of fun with my new cookie cutter set from Kookie Kultura~very unique and fun!
And remember those little metal mailboxes Target has in the Dollar aisle every Feb? I used those for
teachers gifts and they turned out so sweet!
I'm also LOVING my Americolor cookie pens!

Hope everyone had a "Sweet" Valetine's with the ones  you LOVE!

It all Starts With A.....Pink Lemonade pre-party Planning!

A napkin, plate, a dollar aisle item, or in this case, a piece of fabric.....Anything, at any moment can spark an idea that heads straight down a path of party planning, which is 1 of my most favorite things to do! I knew the theme a long time ago, and got it ok'd with Addie, but had been struggling w/ the color palette; Stupid I know, but a playful stressor. There's pastels and traditional/ vintage-inspired anything for a lemonade-themed party and I was prepared for that, but then I found this:
It's the fabric in the foreground! Unfortunately, my camera is awful but when I seen the bright "lemon" yellow I knew I had tablecloths at home that would work great with this! With any luck, I will get one of my sewing friends to trim this out in big hot pink poms and we'll be in business! Hoping to tie it in with some fabric penannt banners too! Not at all what I had orginally envisioned, but I am finally excited about the possibilities :) Can't you just see a huge jar of bright yellow lemons sitting on this?
