Cori’s Bridal Shower

This had to be the prettiest bridal shower I have ever attended.  Everything came together so perfectly on her special day. The mint, coral, and gold colors were so pretty together. The bridesmaids and Cori’s mom  (my sweet best friend)  carried the theme throughout the house and backyard with many custom DIY projects.

I had so much fun making some of the sweets for the dessert buffet. I made cookies to match the chevron theme using mint, coral and gold colors. The French macarons were filled with mango buttercream. The pretzel rods were wrapped in caramel and dipped in white chocolate.  We dipped Oreos in white chocolate using chocolate molds from www.spinningleaf.com   The curly alphabet cookie cutters are from www.cakesbyximena.com The adorable cake was made by Cucamonga Cakery in Rancho Cucamonga and the mini champagne cupcakes were made to match by our sweet friend Laurie.

The talented Kristin Visk of www.kristinviskphotography.com captured these beautiful photos of the day and I am so happy to be able to share them here with you here. For more beautiful photos of Cori’s shower please check out her blog post here. www.kristinviskphotography.com

Cute Cookie Packaging

I love packaging cookies as much as I love decorating them. I find cute packaging everywhere but my favorite cookie boxes come from BRP Boxshop (www.brpboxshop.com). I also find stuff online at Pickyourplum.com, Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, even the dollar bins at Target. I love to buy beautiful ribbons from www.giftsintl.com and in downtown Los Angeles at UnitedCraft.

Pastel Chistmas Cookie Collection 

I really enjoyed decorating all my Christmas cookies in soft pastel colors this year. I was so glad not to have to mix up dark red and greens this Christmas. Here is my Christmas cookie roundup for 2013! Thank you to Glory of www.glorioustreats.com for her cute snowman face tutorial using an ornament cutter. He ended up being one of my favorite cookies.

Candyland Cookies for Abigail

These Candyland themed cookies were so fun to make! I love all the bright and happy colors and recreating cookies to look like candy was a perfect order for a candy lover like myself.

The birthday girl Abigail had such a fun party. Her backyard was transformed in amusement park with bounce houses, a water slide, a dunk tank, things to climb on, crafts to make and a huge candy bar that looked like a candy store. The party included a taco bar, popcorn, snowcones, make your own candy straws, cotton candy, cupcakes with giant gumballs on top and a beautiful Candyland birthday cake for the birthday girl who was turning 5.

Thanks for letting me share in your fun day!

Farm Cookies for Karson’s 2nd Birthday

I created some special cookie favors for a farm themed party. The adorable birthday boy Karson was turning 2 and his party included a petting zoo and farm animals. The decor centered around hay bales, bandanas prints, and burlap. I got inspiration from Sugarbelle (www.sweetsugarbelle.com) for the bandanna print cookies and used a cowprint stencil from Salsa Sweets new stencil line. (www.facebook.com/SalsaSweets). I found the wired burlap ribbon at Hobby Lobby.
