from moving my daughter!
I was away for a few days helping my daughter move from one city to another.
It all went well, but it is SO much work!!
I feel like this little penguin!
But I might have been acting like the bear a few times!! he he.
We lined up some great help and really couldn't have done it without them.

I'll be posting some great ideas starting tomorrow so stay tuned. :)

Wedding basket

I really love this idea and have been thinking about for the big wedding coming up.
Have you ever been to an event and wished you had this or that in your purse?
Well, this little basket might just cover you. :)
Some of the items in the basket are:
Lint roller, tide to go stick, hand lotion, qtips, hair spray, tums...etc.
All the details for this basket are found at Little Miss Wedding Planner.

Tiny Wedding Cakes

My niece wants cupcakes for her wedding.
But maybe, she'd like these instead!!
The site I found them on says
"the idea of mini-tiered cakelets is utterly seductive!"
Well then....better start baking, huh!!
They certainly are elegant (which is the look she is going for!)....but are they TOO much work? My daughter says we could just pour a glaze over them and sprinkle some glitter on top.
So...any ideas?
Anybody have any amazing cupcake recipes?
This wedding stuff is, :)
Idea, directions,

Garland....of the button kind

To me this is amazing!
Buttons on string.
Of course!
Why didn't I think of it??
Certainly an idea to save in my book.
Found this on
Kara's Party Ideas
and she said she got it from
Wedding Chicks,
but I couldn't find it there.....but there are alot of nice ideas there. :)

Go away

I'm sending you away today!
Yep, go.
let me tell you where to go. :)
Dawn at Not Just A Mommy

has an amazing post about Candy Buffets and instead of me copying everything she said (and I would need to do so) I'd love for you just to head over to her blog and read all about it.
Great advice.
Good ideas.
Awesome links.
bye...for now. :)

I'm famous!

Ok, so not really, but here's the deal.
I did a google image search for diy chandeliers and as I'm going through the pages I look at a picture that seems to be MY blog header!!!
And yes, yes it is my blog header with a link to a Martha chandelier that I posted about!
I had no idea my post would show up like that.
I'm alittle slow! :) ha ha
Well it was a little fun for me to see anyway.

But I did find some amazing invitations with a chandelier theme and here are some of my favorites:

and this very cute one from Event 123 Etsy Store more from lillebarntoo Etsy Store

garland of the paper kind

So I found this at Project Wedding and although it is similar to the garland I posted earlier this week, it's different! :) This one is done up in with a vintage library feel to it.
You could make a mobile out of it, hang it as a backdrop, or swag it from a ceiling.
imagine it done up in other colors and styles of paper.
The options/creations are endless!

Mobile/Chandelier/Party Decor

This cute mobile would certainly work for use as a chandelier or any party decor. Can you see it hanging over the gift table or buffet for a baby shower?
Or maybe use a bunch of bold colors for a teen girls party.
And guess what I see??? Strings of these circles hung in a window or as a backdrop for just about any party!
A mobile doesn't have to be a mobile. :)
So, get creative, get cutting and have some fun.
Idea and tutorial found at Organize and Decorate everything blog.

Good news! I have a new computer! :) Yay! Actually it's been here for awhile but it is just now all hooked up and working. Still thinking I should have gotten a laptop though. Guess I didn't think of it till this was already ordered....oh well.

So.....let's begin, with garland! :)This is sweet, unique and so creative. I found the garland and tutorial at tatertotsandjello.blogspot. And what a fun blog name. :)
And this is what she did with her you might not have a storefront window to put it in, but hey,
I'm pretty sure it would work anywhere for most parties too.
