Here is a delicious and easy-to-make summer treat for summer. Just bake some cookie bowls using the back of a cupcake tin, and serve mini scoops of ice cream in them! Here we used chocolate cookies, but you can try any type of cookie you like!

Woodland Baby Shower and More!

by Jillian Leslie on

My favorite parties are a woodland baby shower, a back to school party, a stylish fashion party, and a French Paris party |

Happy mid-July! It's hot here today in Palo Alto but we braved it and walked to our neighborhood art show. I shared a few snaps on Snapchat if you're interested. You can follow me at catchmyparty. Btw, I'm really enjoying Snapchat! Are you on it yet?

Lots of great parties were added to our site this week, including a woodland baby shower you will love! Check out the toadstool cupcakes with white chocolate chips!

Blueberry Mojito Recipe

Blueberry Mojito Recipe |

I had a friend who went to Cuba, and when he got back, he threw a party and made everyone mojitos to celebrate! It was the first time I'd ever tried one and I loved the fresh mint and lime flavor. It tasted light, bright, and summery.

So check out this blueberry mojito recipe we're sharing. It's still got all the zestiness of a traditional mojito, with a lot more bold fruit. And doesn't the blueberry color look so vibrant? Wouldn't your guests love sipping on one of these on a hot summer night?

Geometry Party and More!

by Jillian Leslie on

My favorite parties this week are a geometry party, a patriotic 4th of July party, a under the sea boy birthday party , and a carousel dreams pastel birthday party

Happy almost July 4th! We're being mellow this year, watching fireworks from the Costco parking lot near us where we can get a great view!

This week we had incredible parties added to our site, including a modern graduation geometry party. If you're up on current party trends, you know that "geo" parties are very popular right now. They've got a great modern feel and you can do them in any colors you like.

What Works for a Busy Blogger Mom

What Works for a Busy Blogger Mom |

When you are a blogger, your home life and work life blur. I love this about my job, because everything is part of everything else.

So yes, I am a multitasker by definition. I'm constantly juggling work and family, switching between the two at the drop of a hat.
