Cupcake Inspired Baby Shower Invites & Tags...

Sometimes I think my tag line should be anything and everything cupcake-lol!!!

Jessie, a mommy to be(so exciting)... recently contacted me after seeing my previously posted cupcake inspired baby shower, and asked if I could create some goodies for her as well! Of course... I love cupcakes! Jessie will be offering the bake your own cupcake party favors at her shower, so she asked that I make matching tags as well! What do you all think?!?

P.S. Happy Hump Day!

DIY Lime & Babies Breath Floral

Because these floral arrangements were such a hit, and because I have received many emails asking for assistance in re-creating them, I thought, hmmmm... why not do a pic tutorial!

Your Shopping List
Pretty Ribbon
Glass Vase from Michaels Craft Store
Double Sided Tape
About 5 Limes
4-5 Bunches of Babies Breath

Now go makes some pretty florals for your next event! Happy Monday...

Special Notes: When you start adding the babies breath, it will not look good... as displayed in the third to last pic! You MUST add at least 4 large bunches of babies breath to get a big puffy cloud of white look.

Please be sure to fill the vase with water and flower food prior to adding babies breath!

P.S. Sorry I didnt get a great shot for the final look, its rainy and icky out and my pics were not looking to hot!

P.P.S. Please feel free to comment with questions and I will answer in this post!

Your Favorite Color: What it Says About You...

My favorite colors are pink and green! I just love them, always have and probably always will! Pink cocktails, pink cupcakes, pink paper, etc! There is also so much green in my house. Green cabinets, green fabric, green rugs!

What are your favorite colors and what do they say about you?

Pink: This color embodies the gentler qualities of Red, symbolizing love and affection without passion. Women who prefer Pink tend to be maternal. Pink desires protection, special treatment and a sheltered life. Pink people require affection and like to feel loved and secure, perhaps wanting to appear delicate and fragile. Pink people tend to be charming and gentle, if a trifle indefinite.

Green: The color of harmony and balance, Green symbolizes hope, renewal and peace, and is usually liked by the gentle and sincere. Greens are generally frank, community-minded people, fairly sociable but preferring peace at any price. Green people can be too self-effacing, modest and patient, so they may get exploited by others. They are usually refined, civilized and reputable.

Recipe Archive: Baked Brie w/ Candied Pecans

Well, it's raining in Baltimore- the wind is crazy and gosh is it gloomy outside, beyond gloomy! Weather like this makes me want to snuggle up in a warm blankey, bake some yummy food and relax. Well, the relaxing isn't going to happen for quite a few years- so the yummy food part will have to do.

I felt like re-posting this crazy yummy appetizer incase you didn't see it previously... plus its Saturday, the day for entertaining!

Baked Brie w/ Candied Pecans
1 Round Brie(any kind will do, wholefoods always has a great selection)
1/2 cup Brown Sugar(add more if you like)
1/2 cup of chopped pecans
1 box of fresh raspberries
2 tart apples( I like granny smith)
1 box of assorted crackers

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Remove the thin white film off the top of the brie with a knife and place brie in a pretty baking dish(no need to transfer once heated as who needs more dirty dishes to clean). Spread the brown sugar and pecans over the top of the brie- then softly place fresh raspberries on as well. Bake approx 30 minutes, or until center is a gooey yummy mess.

While the brie is baking, cut the apples into thin slices(but not too soon, as the apples will turn brown, so shortly before its ready).

When the brie is done, remove and surround with apples and crackers!

YUMMMY! Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
