Valentine's Day Cupcakes for Two

Valentines Day Cupcakes for Two

Are you ready for Valentine's Day? How about celebrating it by making cupcakes just for two? 

I found a recipe that lets you make cupcakes using only one bowl, doesn't need a mixer, and makes just enough for two delicious cupcakes. I used baking cups and didn't even have to drag out the baking tin. Easy-peasy and feels special since there are only two.

You can find the recipe on How Sweet Eats.  I doubled the recipe to make one for everyone in my family :-)

5 Ways to Decorate with Balloons without helium
Picture Sources: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 |

We just added balloons to our shop and I am so excited! I love balloons and think they are a great way to decorate for a party. They are instantly festive. However, sometimes it is difficult to find helium or you don't have time to run to the balloon shop to fill them up. Here are some easy ways you can use balloons to decorate without helium!
  1. Blow up balloons and stick them to the wall to create a festive backdrop.
  2. Use small balloons, or even bigger ones, along with lollipop sticks or wooden stakes, to decorate a cake. 
  3. Hang balloons with some tissue paper poms for a beautiful backdrop.
  4. Hang balloons from the ceiling for a magical soiree.
  5. Use stakes and string balloons to set the tone for a cheerful celebration.

To view the balloons we now have available, visit our shop!

Attending Amber Housley's Inspired

Friday, September 12, 2014


Deliveries have been received, custom invitations have been delivered and plans for a very special birthday party are all set.  My schedule is cleared for the next few days and I'm ready to go! I'm heading to Nashville to attend Amber Housley's Inspired. For those of you that don't know what this is, it's "a one of a kind workshop experience for creative business women to grow, connect, and be inspired." I can't wait! 

It will be a bit quiet here on the blog next week while I'm focusing on the event. I'll tell you all about it when I am back!

Mermaid Party Invitations

Mermaid party invitations
My daughter is turning 4 this month and we are celebrating this year with a mermaid party! She loves Ariel from The Little Mermaid and chose the theme herself. It was fun creating the invitation, and it's even more fun planning the party! I'll be sure to post the pictures after we have the party.  In the meantime, if you are thinking of having a mermaid party yourself, you can purchase this invitation in our shop or check out some of our ideas on our Pinterest board.

Sweet Mondays:Spr√ľngli Luxembergerli

Monday, September 1, 2014

Luxembergerli
Happy Monday everyone! Today for your sweet inspiration, we have Luxemburgerlis, which are Switzerland's version of the macaron. They look a little bit like mini colorful hamburgers and come in all kinds of flavors. They usually have a flavor of the month based on what's in season (last month it was mango), some special ones like champagne, as well as classics like chocolate, strawberry and vanilla. It doesn't matter what flavor you choose, they are all yummy. They are smaller and fluffier than a traditional macaron. They are bite size and once they hit your tongue the flavors erupt and it melts in your mouth. Can you tell I love these?
Luxumburgerli from Confiserie Sprungli

The Luxemburgerli is made by Confiserie Spr√ľngli, which is one of the oldest chocolate factories in Switzerland. The Luxemburgerli was first made in the late 1950s and gets its name because the person who first produced them came from Luxemburg. The Swiss often add -li to the end of words to mean something small and cute (i.e. Schatzeli, from the german word Schatze meaning treasure). Today they are very popular and to enjoy it the best you have to eat them when they are fresh. There is a note attached to each box that says "Please Enjoy Immediately". If they stay out too long, they may lose their airy consistency. There is never a problem of them staying out too long at our house! 

These are pretty unique to Switzerland and I recommend trying them if you are here for a visit.  If you live here, you already know how good they are.  They are great for parties or get-togethers, and you can choose a mix of them or just the ones that match your party colors. They are sure to be a hit!
