new year’s eve

Happy Sunday everyone!

Christmas may be over but the party planning definitely is not- New Year’s Eve is just a few days away and I’ve got a ton of ideas. It’s one of my favourite events to plan because you get a room filled with excited guests celebrating a year past and a new year ahead, and lots, lots of glitter!

Here’s what’s on my inspiration board

cupcakes

Good morning everyone

Today is a Wedding Wednesday post!

Cupcakes have been a popular alternative to wedding cakes for a little while now. I love the idea of using dessert variations instead of a traditional wedding cake. It’s a nice way to get creative and make your event unique.

For those of you who are interested in this trend or who just want a good recipe- here is some inspiration!

First, some pretty designs

tonight’s menu & dream kitchens

Hi Everyone!

I hope you are all having a great week so far- I can’t believe it’s already Thursday. The week (and the month for that matter) is going by so fast. I did draw a winner on Thursday and I am so excited to send Carley her the $100 Staples gift card to help get organized and creative this holiday season- congratulations and thanks for reading!

Although it’s chilly out today I felt like switching it up and pulling out some of my favourite summer recipes.

Here’s what for dinner tonight: 

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwiches: I use this recipe (you can also buy the package or use a homemade barbecue sauce)

Fresh Corn Salad this recipe is really tasty and really simple- the best!

Roasted Potatoes Preheat oven to 425- cut potatoes into cubes, toss in oil and your favourite potato seasoning- I get mine at the Farmer’s Market it adds great flavour. Bake until crispy (about 25mins).

For dessert? peanut butter rice krispies ( I use the recipe on the cereal box and add some peanut butter!)

Enjoy your company, your backyard and something yummy!!

Keep the kids busy after school (or during a halloween party) and have some fun with them.

These treats are simple, fun and so tasty!

Get the kids to draw a face on the clear plastic cup. In the meantime, prepare vanilla pudding and add a few drops of green food coloring. Let them help you fill the cups and top with crushed oreo or chocolate cookie. YUM!

Can you guys tell I love special occasions? I really think you can make it fun at any age. 

that’s all for now – wishing you all a wonderful evening!

Red Velvet – the classic
