Happy Valentine's Day!

While browsing the internet I came across the website Sweetapolita, OMG I am in love!  Rosie has the best recipes and photos.  I can't wait to try to bake these Neopolitan Milk and Chocolate Sugar Cookies! Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

As you all know Valentine's Day is right around the corner.  If you're anything like me you probably have big baking plans and adorable packaging ideas...but not much time to carry them out.  This year I thought it might be fun to support some of the awesome Etsy bakers that I've been drooling over for the past few months.  Why not send the people you love a sweet care package! 
I cannot get these vanilla shortbread hearts out of my mind.  Yummm!!! 
What could be better?  How about 3 whole months of cookies? Once a month for three months Scrumptulicious will deliver a dozen beautifully packaged, delicious cookies right to your door.  Talk about the perfect gift!
Don't worry I haven't forgotten the cake, it wouldn't be Valentine's day without a cupcake!  Aren't these cupcake bites from Cake Pop Bake Shop adorable? Perfect for your Valentine parties!
I'm a real sucker for cake pops (haha get it? sucker?) and these Valentine cake pops are as sweet as can be!
Happy Valentine's Day!

A day at the circus

I have wanted to throw a circus or carnival party for as long as I can remember My almost 3 year old has party ideas of his own this year, so my circus party will have to wait.  I can still dream though! Normally when I think of a circus theme I think of blue and red but DimplePrints has come up with a sweet girly theme that is a-dor-a-ble!  Their printable party packs make it easy to customize your party and make it your own.
Now on to the blue and red...We all know that the invitation sets the tone of the party and boy does
Two Pooch Paperie make a cute one!
Of course a trip to the circus wouldn't be the same without a few treats...
 Serve up popcorn in these vintage bags from HeyYoYo or bake your favorite cupcakes using these fancy liners also from HeyYoYo.

Now for a few decorations and your all set! How about these tissue paper garlands
Bring out the kid in everyone with these silly mustaches on a stick from Joosy Card Co
