Pumpkin Cupcakes

Thursday, December 16th, 2010


Today my son celebrated his birthday at preschool. He looked so handsome in his glitter crown, standing there as his classmates sang to him. I still can’t believe he is already 4.  His school does not allow sweets so I made these pumpkin muffins (thank you Trader Joe’s for your yummy and super easy pumpkin bread mix!) for the kids.  They are just as good as real cupcakes (okay almost as good, but you feel better knowing you aren’t eating an entire stick of butter). I figured the teachers couldn’t complain about the teeny tiny dollops of frosting either. I even got to use my new Ikea tray that I just love.  I thought they turned out pretty cute so I had to take a picture to share.

If you are shopping for last minute Christmas gifts for a fellow cupcake lover, here are a few cute ideas

Art Party for Kids

Friday, September 24th, 2010

We’ve got another fabulous children’s birthday party idea to share with you. Amy, of Amy Nichols Special Events, was originally inspired with the simple idea of putting different color frosted cupcakes together on a round platter to look like “paint” on an artist’s palette. From there her idea grew and grew. From cute invitations from Sarah + Abraham to decorated palatte cookies, and jumbo wall post-its so the kids could paint their own masterpieces – she didn’t miss a beat. Check out her blog for more details and adorable pictures.

Pizza Party

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

I have asked Amy Nichols of Celebrate Life by Amy Nichols Special Events to keep me posted as she comes up with creative birthday party ideas. Her latest is a pizza party – a great idea that can work for kids of all ages (and for moms who don’t want to spend a fortune). Here are a few of the highlights.

1) Every birthday party starts with a great invitation. Amy found some really cute pizza theme invites at TomKat Studio.

2) Buy some plain aprons at Michael’s that the kids can decorate.

3) Let the children make their own pizzas with lots of yummy toppings.

4) Make a delicious fruit pizza pie instead of a birthday cake.

5) For party favors, everyone can take home a delicious pizza slice cookie. These cute cookies (see photo) are from little laura’s sweets.
