1. Pastel Easter Milkshakes

    I had to share a closer look at these delicious and adorable Easter milkshakes I whipped up for my kids table. Not terribly unhealthy, they are such a fun and colorful dessert idea for the little ones!

    What you need:

    Directions: Place 5 Scoops of Coconut Dairy Free Ice Cream in the blender with ​2 Tablespoons Skim Milk in blender. Mix until nicely blended. Add 2 drops of food coloring of choice and mix until color is fully incorporated into the ice cream. Place mixture into a highball glass and top with whipped cream, sprinkles, and a peep on the rim! Repeat with each individual color you want displayed!

    Serve your little ones and expect endless smiles!!

  2. Watermelon Cooler Cocktail

    Nothing pairs with sunshine quite like fresh watermelon, so today I wanted to whip up a delicious and refreshing watermelon cocktail to serve as a compliment to my Spring party and party menu! What I love about the cocktail is the natural sweetness which comes from the watermelon itself, and the hint of lime which comes from the fresh lime juice. Also a fab mocktail, it’s quite the crowd pleaser so I recommend making a pitcher worth to place on a bar cart. One note if you plan to serve outside, I recommend placing ice separate {ie. in an ice bucket} as…

  4. Floral Cheese Board

    So in yesterday’s post I mentioned I couldn’t wait for a cozy Valentine’s Day at home. Well, I decided to create a pretty cheese board for our movie night and this sweet idea of a floral cheese board came to me, so I had to share! It’s such a great last minute party idea, and transforms the look of your display in minutes. While shopping at the grocery for your cheeses, crackers, salami, olives, and nuts {see an amazing over flowing cheese board in this post}, also reach for a mixed bouquet. Come home and assemble your cheese board and…

  5. Mashed Potato & Toppings Bar

    I am really into creating fun and unique buffet displays at my latest parties {if you missed my soup bar, check it out here!}, so for my latest winter dinner party I created a delicious mashed potato bar with all of the necessary toppings! Great for kids and adults, and with the right display, looks uber chic, guests couldn’t wait to doctor up their favorite mixes. To create the buffet I found this gorgeous calligrapher, Amy May Paper, to create this rustic chalkboard sign and matching label cards {which I plan to use again and again!}. Then I made sure to include my favorite…
