Like a Flash!

Like a Flash, another year has gone by and my first born is now 8 years old.  This year we celebrated with "The Flash" super hero theme. 

For the first time, I ordered a cake instead of making it myself.  It took some tweaking, but the cake turned out great.  The family worked as a team to make a "balloon helix" in signature "Flash" red and yellow.  The decorations were topped off with simple red and yellow napkins and plates.

This year we went back to our local "Wallabies" for jumping fun on the inflatable slides and obstacle courses.  Fun was had by all!

A tribute to our sweet "Cody"

Last month (May 9th, 2017) we lost our dear furry friend "Cody".  Cody had blessed us with  9 years of companionship filled with happiness and joy. 

We will always remember his sweet little face and wagging tail.

Lego Batman Birthday

My youngest son just turned 6 and this year he requested a "Lego Batman" theme for his birthday party.

I used a mix of gray, black, and yellow fondant to make the "Batman" cake.  To keep things simple, I used a cake mix (my son picked a vanilla flavor).

I found this tutorial on "Pinterest" for "Lego" brick head marshmallow pops.  I gave the marshmallow pops away as party treats and they seemed to be a big hit. I used the "Wilton Candy Melts Marker" to draw on the "Lego" faces.

Below is a recap of of the birthday cakes made for my youngest from years 1-5.

Wishing you birthday cake inspiration.

Easy Easter Egg Wreath

Hello All,

With Easter Sunday quickly approaching, I wanted to share this simple Easter Egg wreath I put together for around $5.  I already had a grapevine wreath on hand, so all I did was hot glue some pretty eggs I found (marked 40% down) at "Michaels". 

A couple weeks ago, I found these wreaths at  TJ Maxx that were $24.99 each. These are a great option if you are looking for something ready made. .

If you are like me and want to save money every chance you can, don't be afraid to give "DIY" a try. My total investment was about 10 minutes of time and $5 for the eggs

Wishing Everyone a very Happy Easter!
