Friday Weddings: Bridesmaids theme Bachelorette Party

You know I always give you wedding inspiration on Fridays...but what about one of the most fun parties right before the wedding!? {why have I been neglecting this?...I have no idea! lol}

I'm obsessed with Andersruff 's fun photo shoot inspired by Bridesmaids the movie!...{I actually went to see this movie with my Bridesmaid ;) how sweet is that!, and she was wonderful, since she promised me that none of that will be happening to us or at my wedding lol}

The great catch that you will be able to throw a bachelorette party  just like the one by the girls at Andersruff because all of their pretty eye candy decor is included in the DVD set coming up on you def have no excuse to give your Bride a fun and chic night in ;) {Love it! It's genius, right?}

If you've seen the movie, you will crack up as soon as you get hit by the first pic {puppies - 5 to go pls!}

DIY: Scissors Cookies {Crafting at School Party}

The first days of school are here have a Crafting at School party for your kids {nephews or even a block party!}

Activity: Have everyone decorate their "Back to School" theme cookies.

Set a small table and chairs, assign a decorating station for all of your guests! 

You will need:

1 set of "Back to School" theme cookies {2 or 3 per guest}
Royal icing in pastry bags, in 4-5 different colors
Sprinkles, sugar crystals


And since you can't have a Crafty Party without must have a few of these cute Scissors shaped cookies!

Here's how you can make your own:

You will need these cookie cutters: 
X & ♥

Cut your cookie dough with each of the cookie cutters. Then cut each cookie shape into half and pull them together to form a Scissors shape cookie (as shown on pic)

Bake your cookies for 10 minutes. Have them ready for your little guests to decorate them :)

Teach them hoe to outline the scissors shape following the simple steps on the pictures!

The final touch... add a cute sprinkle or heart on top of the scissors and they will be ready to cut!

Beach theme cupakes {for your wedding}

Beach//Nautical theme weddings are huge here in NJ!

Now more and more couples are opting for having cupcakes in lieu of the traditional wedding cake...I love this if you're trying to sell this idea to one of your M.I.L.s {we all want to be happy, don't we?} them show them these ideas on your next meeting ;)

Cupcakes can be fun, pretty, classy and wedding worthy!


Beach Party Pull Apart Cake

Love putting together this fun pull apart cake...for those of you that are not familiar with it, a pull apart cake is actually a flat surface covered with lots of cupcakes to form something like this!

 This Beach theme pull apart cake holds 72 cupcakes
 {vanilla, vanilla chocolate chips, cinnamon and blueberry with vanilla, chocolate and cream cheese frosting}

And here's how it looked at the party!! 

We added lots of brown sugar, beach themed cookies and 
the pretty flower garland

We also added a personal cake for the Birthday Girl

We loved being part of this Surprise 13th Birthday party for sweet Lauren!

DYI: Apple Marshmallow Pops

Send your kids away to school with these pretty treats!

These apple marshmallow pops are sure to make everyone smile ;)

You need:

10 lollipop sticks
1 bag of red candy melts (white chocolate)
green colored fondant
mini pretzels
red sugar crystals
What to do:

1. Insert a lollipop stick into the marshmallow {to make lollipops}

2. Make mini green leafs using the green fondant. Make 10 tiny bowls (about 1/4 inc each), then roll each of them with the same lollipop stick and mold into a leaf shape with your own hands. Trace a leaf pattern with a toothpick.

3. Cut the mini pretzels into tiny sticks

4. Place the candy melts into a microwave safe bowl and melt for 1minute or less. Cover each marshmallow pop with the melted candy melt. Immediately coat it with red sugar crystals.

5. Add a pretzel stick and a mini leaf on top with a little pressure to make sure they are touching the melting chocolate that will help them stay in place. Set aside on a wax paper for about 20 minutes.

So cute...I feel like trying this in apple green next time :D
