Today we're sharing 8 great July 4th party ideas to give you some inspiration for your parties, BBQs, and celebrations this weekend! We have ideas for desserts, decorations, free printables and more! Plus, they're all really really easy.
Here's a fun spin on summer cupcakes. Turn your regular cupcakes into July 4th ice cream cone cupcakes. They're more festive and portable this way, and great for little hands.
This quick and easy recipe comes from Shauna at Ella and Annie Magazine!
It's Sunday again and I'm excited to show off my 4 favorite parties of the week added to our site. Each one has a phenomenal cake, as you can see. It makes me so happy just looking at this collage.
So let's get to it... My favorite parties this week include a fantastic Lego Ninjago party, a pretty and whimsical fairy birthday party, a fun pink & brown pony birthday party, and a fabulous patriotic 4th of July party (with a Rice Krispie treat cake -- oh my!).
When I see a new trend showing up on our site, I love to share it.
That's why I've rounded up these beautiful bohemian tribal parties. They have lots of Native American touches like teepees, arrows, dream catchers, and feathers, but to give them a more ethereal feel, the color palette is usually pastel, and there are lots of soft details, like fabric and ribbons.
It's Summer! Yay! I've teamed up with some of my favorite blogs to bring one lucky reader the must-have techy item of 2015 - the new Apple Watch!
You might already own a smart phone, and you might not be able to justify upgrading to the new Apple watch, so that's why it would be so cool to win an Apple Watch!!
It's always fun showing off my 4 favorite parties of the week.
This week, I've included some seriously fun ones... a Harry Potter party with a dessert table right out of the movie, a seaside themed nautical first birthday, a pink and gold glittery birthday bash, and a Medieval knights birthday party with lots of dragons!
Skinny Cow asked me to share how I indulge myself -- where I put myself and my needs first.
As a working mom, I must admit, I don't have a lot of time for indulgence. I constantly ask myself, "What did I do with all my free time before I was a mom? How could I have thought I was busy?" To be fair, I do remember watching lots of movies and taking lots of naps, and that can be exhausting.
When I think of July 4th, I think about being a kid and heading to the Jersey Shore with my family. I grew up in NJ but we didn't go "down the shore" often, maybe once a summer. It was special.
I loved the Jersey Shore, it felt so alive. It wasn't snooty, like other east coast beaches. It was tacky, with lots of people with bad hair and bad accents, and yes, I was one of them. (But I only discovered that years later when I moved away.)
