{July 4th Ideas} Patriotic Fruit Pizza

I love fruit pizza and so do the kids! There are so many ways to make them and the possibilities are endless!  Here's a fun idea we whipped up for a Patriotic fruit pizza.

So, in my mind fruit pizza is super easy and kids love it!  All you need is-

  • Sugar Cookie Dough - I like Pillsbury, but I'm sure your own recipe is fine.  You can also try puff pastry or brownie mix as your pizza 'crust.'
  • Some type of cream to spread over the cookie once it's baked. - we use a vanilla frosting or Marshmallow fluff because the Mini Diva has dairy allergies, but you can mix a pack of cream cheese with sour cream or yogurt and use it as a spread or try my favorite fruit dip.
  • Fruit - sliced, diced or chopped- any fruit is fine, but since we're celebrating our great nation's holiday, I went with strawberries and blueberries!

Then follow these steps -

Dee-licious berries!!!!

{Etsy Shop} ANNOUNCEMENT & New Listings

Just wanted to share a few new items I added to the Etsy shop!

With my work schedule, along with just being a wife and mom, along with demand from customers, AND my desire to add my Party-to-Go items to the shop, I decided to offer my deluxe party kits as printables.

I will still provide professional printing services for invitations and other party stationery, however, the full party kits are a bit too much for me to continue to handle at the moment. Hopefully things will change and maybe in the future, I'll be able to reinstate that service. In the meantime, here are some new items I just added to the shop as printables.

 A really fun summertime Popsicle themed party is a sure way to beat the heat!

I also updated a collection I created a few years back. It needed new life!  This Pink Baby Elephant Party printable set is just too cute!  I think it's perfect for a baby's first birthday or shower!  I love the colors too - has sort of a preppy feel to it!

I have all intents and purposes to take some REAL photos of these parties over the weekend - crossing my fingers - in the meantime, check out our other items listed the shop for more fun party printables & decor!

{Happy Customers} Video Game Sleepover Party

I have been holding onto these photos for far too long of a fun video game inspired sleepover thrown by a regular client of mine, Natalie. She threw her son, Amari, this fun party in November (yes, last year....I told you I've been holding on for too long) and was kind enough to share the photos with me of the custom items I designed for the party.

We came up with this idea for the invite to highlight everything that the party would include, sleepover, pizza, popcorn, soda pop and video games!

Once I designed all the materials, they were shipped to Natalie where she added labels to bottles of soda & Martinelli's apple juice!!!!

I love this idea of a popcorn bar - but I think I'm more in love with all of those containers!!!!  Natalie added those fun popcorn signs to her table.

Her son really enjoys his Wii - so Natalie had a really cool Wii remote control cake created just for him!

Natalie wanted a way to personalize basic black gable favor boxes, so I designed these labels that she adhered to the front of each box!

This adorable concession stand was available for guests to fill boxes with treats using tickets they received.  Each cotton candy cone was embellished with a personalized sticker.

Thanks Natalie for working with me again!!!!  You're awesome and your ideas are fabulous as always (I do have another party that I did for Natalie that I promise to share next week!)

When I started working on this custom order, I originally came up with this invitation - which I just, I added it to my shop!

You can find the  Wii-inspired invite in the Cupcake Wishes & Birthday Dreams Etsy party shop!

{Fantastic Friday} Nuts About Dad Father's Day Gift Idea and 'Tie'-Riffic Party

I know I promised to share this idea with you yesterday but I was taken down by the allergy monster that I mistook for a cold....anyways, I'm alive and well. As promised, here is a quick tutorial on how to create a fry box Father's Day favor/gift using our 'Nuts About Dad' printables!

Here is what you will need to get started:

(I didn't have my bone folder on hand so I used my scissors to score the box.  So, if ya don't have a bone folders, scissors work - but BE CAREFUL....please!!!)

(Tip: I like to use these no slip hair elastics
before adding my twine to bags - they help to firmly secure the bag.)

The 'Nuts About Dad' Father's Day printable set is available in the shop!

Also - please check out my post on a Father's Day 'tie'riffic party that I styled for MG Party Impressions!
