Oddly enough, this Mickey Mouse Tablescape was not for a child but for a 23 year old (hence the wine glasses on the table) with a love of Disney and a great sense of humor!
Pulling together a quick fun tablescape should be fast, easy and inexpensive and this tablescape was.
With just 3 elements I was able to make the whole table look Mickey Mouse inspired. This theme would also work well for a baby shower.
It was a fun lighthearted party that the birthday girl truly enjoyed.
Breakfast in bed, it sound so romantic and indulgent.
It can be a real treat for someone who has been overworked and frazzled. The most lovely way to start a day is to be pampered.
But how can you make a breakfast in bed perfect? It takes a little bit of planning and knowing what the person would truly appreciate.
Most of the time fancy foods and fussiness is not required. What they would really appreciate is a simple well made breakfast that they would enjoy presented in a beautiful way.
There has been a lot of odd things written about how to make perfect hard boiled eggs that include all sorts of additives to the water.
When you need hard boiled eggs that look perfect in the shell it is frustrating when half of them end up cracking.
I have two methods on how to cook eggs so that they are perfect and will reduce cracking. Chose which one is best for you for the situation.
It is shockingly easy to create fun, memorable and unique cake toppers for any occasion.
Using your glue gun and a pattern you can make any number to fit the birthday boy or girl.
Best to make a day before you need it so you won't be rushed.
Let your imagination go wild in what colors you would like to make these numbers.
I wanted mine to have the look of cake sprinkles!
Dressing a bottle of champagne gives it an extra bit of prestige when presented on a table.
This was something that I was taught to do years ago but doesn't seem to be done so often anymore.
In the high end florist store I worked we were routinely brought bottles of expensive wines and alcohols to dress them or the cradles that they were being served in.
For one of our own recent parties I dresses this Methuselah sized (yes, that is the correct term) bottle of bubbly as it was the show piece of the wine table.
St. Patrick's Day is when everyone find a little bit of Irish in themselves.
You can join the festivities by putting back some green beer but if beer is not your drink of choice why not try an Irish Coffee.
Very popular it is a sweet coffee with liquor, great for finishing off a meal.
Add a four clover garnish and you will be celebrating St. Patty's Day in style.
You need to get ready for some spring cleaning and to get yourself in the mood why not whip up a tea towel chef's apron.
Tea towels often go on sale and it is a pity just to use the great colors and patterns that they come in just for mopping up.
This apron was made with two 99 cent tea towels I picked up at the Cambridge Towel Outlet Sale.
Easy to make this tea towel chef's apron is meant to be washed many times and still look good.
These can also be made up quickly as gifts for the cooks, barbequers and bakers in your life.
This free printable birthday banner is bright and cheerful and easy to print off. Perfect for either a child or adult.
I made this free printable birthday banner in a multitude of colors so it can fit many color schemes or you can take your color scheme from it.
Red, pink, blue, yellow, green and purple all pop up here, either in the lettering or the multicolored edging.
Simple to print of on paper there are cutting lines for easy trimming. Four letters to a sheet plus I added an extra empty frame if you needed to fill in a number.
