Wreck-it Ralph Party – Sugar Rush Dessert Table {Part 2}

Wreck it Ralph Party | #deliciouslydarling #wreckitralph #desserts

Whooho for Part 2! Sharing the rest of our super awesome Wreck-it Ralph party today. The Sugar Rush dessert table. Side note, here’s part 1 of the Wreck-it Ralph party.

For those of you who haven’t watched Wreck-it Ralph, Sugar Rush Speedway is a racing game but based in a land where everything and pretty much everyone is made of sweets. That’s my kind of game! I tried to recreate the feel of the race. From the paper lollipops and candy in the grandstands to the awesome little race cars. In the Sugar Rush clouds are actually cotton candy clouds, donuts are police men and oreos are solders that guard King Candy.

I hope you enjoy my take on a Sugar Rush dessert table. Details & Vendor info below.

Dessert Table Details

I am so fortunate to work with an amazing group of vendors – seriously amazing. Their work literally floors me. So let’s start with the cake! I found a gorgeous picture of a rainbow petal cake on pinterest & sent it to my sweet & uber talented butter-cream friend Kathi from My Sweet Things. Not only are Kathi’s cakes a work of art, they are incredibly delicious and the only cake my kids request for their birthdays. Kathi whipped up this beautiful rainbow petal cake.

My son, Jad, also requested a Ralph sitting on top of his cake. Maria from Love & Sugar Kisses created the most amazing fondant Ralph! He looks absolutely perfect sitting on top of that rainbow cake holding a little pie. Maria is so talented. I just love her. She also created those yummy gold chocolate covered oreos with Wreck-it Ralph characters on top. Ins’t Fix-it Felix so cute? On a side note, I have to set aside one chocolate covered oreo for mama to enjoy the day after the party with my coffee. Yum.

Don’t you just love the Ralph inspired Fondant toppers by Lynlee’s Petite Cake? I am so grateful that Lynlee took time out of her super busy schedule {if you didn’t know she’s working on her first book, can’t wait to get my hands on it!} to create these cupcake toppers which featured: Sonic, Ralph, Vanellope, Cherries, Sour Bill, Qubert and lots of other Ralph-tastic movie icons. Brittany, from Edible Details created the most amazing fondant hero medals, hammers & humongous pies! I just love how real her toppers look. The detail on the medals is incredible!

Let’s take a minute to talk about the Sugar Racers Sugar Cookies by Sandy of Firefly Confections. Seriously Amazeballs! The detail on her cookies is astounding. So intricate and such a work of art, I literally have a hard time eating her cookies. Not because they aren’t super delicious it’s because they are so incredible, too pretty to eat.

The darling “You’re My Hero” Sugar cookies were created by Deb from Yummy Delicious Cookies. Deb is so so so sweet and her cookies are beyond delicious. My kids {and I} just love them.

My sweet friend Stacy from She’s Kinda Crafty added some awesome to the Sugar Rush Dessert table. She created the “Start / Finish” Line. I just LOVE the glitter card stock and was honored she said she added the glitter just for me. Giggle, she knows me well. Glitter makes everything better. The race cars look so good on the yellow felt racetrack next to the starting line!

In addition to all the above the dessert table also included: rainbow jello, oreo cheesecakes and cotton candy cupcakes. So what’s my favorite part of this dessert table? I have to say it’s the paper oreo’s protecting the chocolate covered oreos. I swear, sometimes I only do things to make myself laugh and I found this hysterical.

As always, thank you thank you thank you to my incredible photographer & friend Lauren. She captures everything so perfectly and makes me look good. Thank you Lauren!

Wreck It Ralph Birthday Party {Part 1}

Wreck it Ralph Party | #deliciouslydarling

I’m Gonna Wreck-It! So excited to share part 1 of my son’s Wreck-it Ralph Birthday party with you all today. My son Jad, whom we joke is “Jad the Distroyer” loves to wreck stuff. Lego buildings don’t stand a chance when Jad’s around. So when we went to see “Wreck-it Ralph” in the movie theaters I instantly knew Jad would want a “Gonna Wreck-It” birthday party. Sure enough, a few months later he asked mama for both a Ralph & Sugar Rush birthday party.

What I love about the Wreck-it Ralph movie is there is so much inspiration to pull from: The Fix-it Felix Jr Game, Game Central Station, Sugar Rush and Bad Anon where just a few of the elements I brought to life. I hope you enjoy the pictures and details below.

Tablescape

My son equally loves Fix-it Felix Jr & Ralph so I wanted the tables to reflect that. My inspiration came from the Fix-it Felix Jr Game. Lots of reds {for Ralph} and Blues {for Felix}. The building centerpieces were created to look like the Nicelander’s building that Ralph wrecks every game. Each building had 40 little di-cut windows & doors. The centerpieces were finished off with large blue balloons and amazing custom balloon tassels from The Flair Exchange. I love the shades of blue, gold, white & red in the tassels. They really brings the colors together perfectly.

Each plate had a bright blue bottle of Fix-it Pop. The labels & printables were created by Piggy Bank Parties. Not only are they a joy to work with but Team Piggy Bank is incredibly talented. They took my “vision” and perfectly turned it into reality. The Felix bottle labels are my favorite! Let’s talk about the custom cutlery by Sucre Shop! I seriously squealed when the “Gonna Wreck It” forks & spoons arrived. Custom cutlery just makes any event that much better. 

Game Central Station 

In the movie, Game Central Station is the terminal in which game characters can go from game to game. I really wanted to kids to feel like they walked into Game Central Station. We have Tappers, the root beer float game complete with actual root beer floats. I just love the Tappers stickers!

Next we have Bad Anon. In the movie the bad guys go to a Bad Anonymous meeting where they say their pledge & talk about taking it one game at a time. Chairs with Ralph, Saitine {aka Satan}, Zombie & Zangief were set up around the ridiculously awesome Bad Anon poster by Piggy Bank Parties! Seriously, it’s amazing. I actually laughed during the party when I noticed that some of the kids came over and just started hanging out in “Bad Anon”.

All the sweet Sugar Rush characters make an appearance in Game Central Station. For more Sugar Rush cuteness you have to check back tomorrow when I’ll be sharing the whole dessert table set up.

Activities

Since Jaddy’s birthday is in the summer we always go with a water party. The kids had the most amazing time playing in the various pools, water tables & huge inflatable slip n’ slide. Mama had to fight the urge not to slide down with the kids. They had such a blast.

The kids also had fun with the homemade Wreck-it Ralph game. I wrapped 8 large boxes with Brick paper then added windows and a door. Using Ralph hands, also from the Disney Store, the kids wrecked the building. They had a blast trying to see if they could knock the building down with one punch. It was a fun activity.

The kids also had a chance to sit down & craft a little. Cardboard hearts with string, that resemble the “You’re my Hero” necklace from the movie, were decorated with stickers, glitter and crayons. It’s a fun and inexpensive craft.

Favors

Each kiddo took home their very own gold bucket that contained a Sugar Rush plush, gumballs, skittles & a lollipop. I actually sprayed the buckets gold and then added a little gold glitter because everything is better with glitter. *wink*. The buckets were finished off with a Sugar Rush inspired label that says “Everyone Loves an Adorable Winner”. As for the stand all the favors are on – it used to be green, fast forward 3 cans of spray paint later – it’s gold & glittery & perfect.

Monsters University Party

Monsters University Party #deliciouslydarling

My kiddos love animated movies. I’m actually not sure who loves these movies more, the kids or mama. We wanted to celebrate the upcoming Monsters University movie with a little MU Play Date. Inspired by The Celebrations Shoppe, Lynlee’s Petite CakesLaura’s Little Party instagram post, I decided to put together a sweet little dessert table for my kiddos play date.

So why do a dessert table on a couch? Answer: Why not? I’ve always wanted to set up a dessert display on a couch. This couch is perfection – white & leather so it’s easy to clean post play date. I wanted a simple, inexpensive & easy dessert set up. I opted for dressing up store bought cupcakes with monster eyes & using store bought sugar cookies. How perfect are the sully & mike cookies from Target? Chocolate covered oreo pops & brownie push up pops, sparkling fruit water were also featured. Wrap a few books in scrapbook paper and washi tape a Mike Wazowski to the couch and you have an instant party.

“Scream Like Monster”. I did a little research and loved the “Scream like Monster” tag line on the marketing posters for Monsters University. I fought the urge to insert an “A” into the banner while making it. Just before the play date, my son Malik walks up to me and says “Love the banner mom but you forgot an A. It should be ‘scream like A monster’ not ‘scream like monster’”. LOL. You never argue with a soon-to-be 1st grader when they are correcting you on your English.

I just couldn’t say no to the adorable Monsters U letter Jackets my kiddos are sporting. I know it’s like 100 degrees outside but they are going to be perfect for the fall when they return back to school.

I hope you enjoy & are inspired to put together your own “Scream Like Monster” party.

4th of July Dessert Table- Let Freedom Ring

Deliciously Darling | 4th of July | Let Freedom Ring | Desserts

Let Freedom Ring!!! So very excited to share my 4th of July collaboration with Rebekah from A Blissful Nest with you all today. I had the opportunity to get to know Rebekah at BlissDom this past year. She is such an amazing & talented woman! She created this amazing printables vintage inspired set  - with dark blue, red & tan. I literally jumped up and down once I got the files & decided to add a little gold into the mix. I hope you enjoy this “Let Freedom Ring” 4th of July Inspiration.

Desserts:

This super patriotic dessert table has lots of red, white & blue {and glitter too}. I started with an amazing bit of fabric – a gold dot burlap – that I found at Joanne’s Fabric. Once I found the gold fabric, I knew I wanted to pair gold details with the dessert table, from the gold glittered frame to the gold glitter star spoons. I went for traditional 4th of July desserts like: Berry Trifle, Patriotic Jello & Berries and mixed in some Salted Caramel Macarons. I can’t resist adding them in. Fresh berries in adorable little tasting cups, yummy sugar cookies, caramel corn & cupcakes rounded out this delicious dessert table.

Just a side note: I really loved making the Berry Trifle. It was incredibly easy & delicious. Lots of fresh berries, cool whip & yummy pound cake. You can make it ahead of time and it’s great for large gatherings.

Hanging above the dessert table are 3 adorable hanging tassels from The Flair Exchange. The shades of blue in the tassels really helped pull together the various blues used in the desserts. I also added 4 star garlands from target. Not only were they affordable but really adorable. I replaced the silver star with a gold star and it fit my table perfectly!

Need an idea on what to give your guests as a favor? Mason jars with marshmallows, chocolate & graham crackers are the perfect “S’mores-to-go” favor. They look so darling with star parchment paper, tied with twine & a tag .

I really hope you  are inspired for your your own 4th of July party.

True Blood Inspired Vampire Vanilla Raspberry Parfait

Deliciously Darling | True Blood Inspired Dessert | Vampire Vanilla Raspberry ParfaitRaise your hand if you are excited about the new season of True Blood? Am I the only one raising my hand? It’s no secret that I’m a huge True Blood Fan, Team Eric {of course since Vampire Bill is now Billith}. This weekend is the Season Premiere, so I’m celebrating with a simple & yummy Vampire Inspired Dessert – Vampire Vanilla Raspberry Parfait.

If you need more True Blood Inspiration, check out last year’s dessert table & party – part 1 and part 2.   

Deliciously Darling | True Blood Inspired Dessert | Vampire Vanilla Raspberry Parfait

Vampire Vanilla Raspberry Parfait

Ingredients

  • 1 (5 ounce) package instant Jello vanilla pudding mix
  • 2 – 16 ounce (or 4 – 8 ounce) containers Cool Whip
  • 1 Pound cake
  • 1 Jar of Raspberry Preserves

Directions

  1. Cut the pound cake into small cubes. I love the Trader Joes brand pound cake so that’s what I used with this recipe. Set aside after cutting.
  2. Pour 1 package of instant vanilla pudding into a large bowl and fold in the two large containers of cool whip. Mix well and set aside.
  3. In your glass, scoop one teaspoon of Raspberry preserves at the bottom, followed by the pound cake cubes then topped with the pudding mixture. You may want to continue layering the raspberry, cake & pudding until you’ve reached the top of your glass. My glasses are shallow so only one layer of each was needed.
  4. Top off with raspberry preserves & grab a tooth pick & swirl the berry & pudding together to form a design.
  5. Enjoy!

Note: I realize this make a lot of pudding! To cut down use only 1 large package of cool whip to about 1/2 package of instant pudding.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Inspired Birthday Party

Deliciously Darling | Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Cake

So excited to {finally} share my son Malik’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party! Let’s rewind back to September 2012. Malik was watching Saturday morning cartoons and saw a commercial for the new TMNT cartoons. He then turned to me and said “Mama, I want a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party for my Birthday”. In my head I’m thinking “Wow, he’s an early planner like his mama. A chip off the ol’ party planner’s shoulder”. Then he continued, “I think everyone will want a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Birthday Party so I want to have one. It’s going to be Epic”. I actually stopped sipping coffee at this point and laughed for probably a solid 3 minutes. LOL, He’s such a trend predictor. So his 6th birthday party {that’s a good 7 months away} needs to be Epic & have lots of Turtle Power.

I was so excited about this theme! My hubby & I grew up on the old school TMNT cartoons. I even remember the show where they tried to make the turtles “real” by having guys wear costumes. I digress. It became the question of which route do I go? The edgy new turtles or the adorable old school turtles? So fast forward to April 2013 – Malik had his Epic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party, with both old school turtles references & new school turtles. Best of both worlds. I totally hope you enjoy the radical pictures below dudes! Cowabunga!

Tablescape

My son loves pizza and well Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles love pizza so naturally I had to add the pizza element in thus “Malikangelo’s Pizzeria” was born. The apple green plates fit so perfectly with the green linens & apple soda. A “shell-tastic” muslin drawstring pouch held the most adorable stamped cutlery from the Sucre Shop. I just love how adorable the forks are. Hobnail vases filled with orange & yellow ranunculus and finished with a sewer cap pizzeria sign made the perfect centerpieces.

Dessert Table

Keeping with the Pizzeria theme, I wanted the dessert table to feel like you were in the sewer. I found the perfect brick fabric that served as the backdrop. Glittered PVC pieces came together to form a really cool looking sewer pipes. The first thing that catches my eye is the amazing cake! Two amazing vendors came together to create straight up gorgeousness. Brenda from Sugar High Inc is such a talented artist. She created the huge Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle cake topper. Amazing right? Kathi from My Sweet Things made the delicious & equally adorable ombre petal cake. Intricate TMNT cookies from Firefly Confections were incredible. The Marshmallow pops, created by Alejandra from the Marshmallow Studio were the hit of the party. I just loved the adorable little chocolate covered oreos with turtles on top. The dessert table also featured: pizza sugar cookies, oreo pudding cups, ooze push up pops {aka lime jello}, chocolate turtle lollipops and cupcakes with amazing fondant toppers.

Craft Activity

I have to have a craft at each one of my parties. What better craft then to decorate a little green backpack? Thank You to Mariah from Giggles Galore for helping me brainstorm & suggesting the craft at Blissdom. The little backpacks had shell stencils ironed on to them so the kids then brushed on the fabric paint, peeled off the stencil then added their own touch. It was really cool to see all the different backpacks the kids created.

 Additional Activities

In addition to crafting the kids had such an amazing time on the Inflatable Obstacle course. There may or may not have been a few parents sprinting through it at the end of the party. That may or may not have been me.

We ended the perfect party with a Ninja Turtle Pinata  A pinata that was made by Mama. Back-story: My son came into my studio and requested a Turtle Pinata. The thought of kids with bats kind of terrified me so I began the search for a pull string pinata  Unable to find one that Malik & I liked he asked me to make it. So adorable how he thinks I can make anything. Challenge accepted. I think it turned out pretty awesome. There will totally be a blog post tutorial on how you can make your own pinata.

Favors

Each kiddo took home a Pizza box filled with goodies. I’m a fan of useful party favors so the TMNT coloring books, pen & stickers were just perfect. The kids also filled their pizza boxes with TMNT cookies, marshmallow pops and bottles of gumballs from the dessert table.

That’s a Wrap

I hope you loved the gorgeous images, from the talented Lauren of Lauren Nicole Studios. HUGE thank you to my amazing vendors. You guys make me look good. The level of talent seriously amazes me and I’m honored to have a chance to work with them. Also, please don’t forget to pre-order The Marshmallow Studio’s new book so you can learn how to make amazing marshmallow pops too: http://martshmallows.com/

Retro Pink & Mint Ice-Cream Parlour

 

Deliciously Darling | Pink & Mint Retro Ice Cream Parlour Dessert Table

As soon as the flowers start to bloom and the leaves start to grow I immediately begin to crave ice-cream. I think I speak for children of the world when I say “We all scream for Ice-cream”.

I wanted this ice-cream table to have a retro feel but a modern touch. I went with a jade green, pink & silver color pallet – pink for the girls and green to appeal to our boys. I’ve been wanting to do this color combination for the longest time. So when Bird {from the one and only Bird’s Party Magazine} asked me to create an ice-cream dessert table – I jumped.

More details below the gorgeous pics. Big thank you to my amazing group of vendors, scroll down and show them some love.

 Handmade paper plate backdrop {inspired by Blue Eyed Yonder} adds a fun element to this dessert table.

The gorgeous cake created by My Sweet Things makes the perfect focal point to the Ice-cream parlor. Little ice-cream cups filled with strawberry ice-cream, topped with a fondant cherry & ice-cream spoon look absolutely perfect.

Ice-cream pint containers with adorable ice-cream labels make the perfect favor container.

Other sweets included Vanilla Marshmallow Ice-cream cones {using the amazing recipe from SprinkleBakes }, delicious ice-cream shaped cookies, strawberry cupcakes and strawberry milk.
Pro-Tip:
When photographing ice-cream it’s best not to use real ice-cream. I used “photographer’s ice-cream” for this shoot. You will need 1 jar of frosting to 2 lbs of powdered sugar. I picked frosting that was already pink so that i could have the same consistency throughout. Eventually the frosting & the powdered sugar will combine into a dough like form. Just scoop & snap away! Looks real doesn’t it. Shhh, our little secret.

DIY Earth Day Wreath

Deliciously Darling | DIY Earth Day Wreath | Recycled

Happy Earth Day!!! The sun is shining down here in Atlanta, the birds are chirping, the pollen count is high and well it’s a beautiful day. Here’s the back story on today’s craft {yes, there is always a back story}. This past weekend was my son’s 6th birthday party. Being the party planning mom that I am, I used every cute item in my party supply stash, including some adorable wooden spoons from the Sucre Shop. Early Saturday morning, I scooped out 24 cups of ice-cream and added the adorable light green & dark green chevron spoons. Sadly, I forgot the tray in the freezer so the ice-cream was not served at the party.  Note my fabulous Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle nail art below.

Deliciously Darling | DIY Earth Day Wreath | Recycled Bummed that these fabulous spoons didn’t get to play at the party – I created this DIY Earth Day wreath. Created with 16 recycled ice-cream spoons, a large paper rosette I had left over from a past photoshoot, some green twine {from Waiting on Martha}, 2″ paper circle & printable that I’m offering for free at the end of the post.  Super duper easy, check out my 4 steps below!

Step 1:  Using hot glue, glue your spoons together in groups of 3 to 4. Make sure to fan them out as evenly as possible. Gluing them in groups makes it easier to assemble.

Step 2: Grab your groups of spoons and start to glue them all together to form a circle.

Step 3: Grab a left over paper rosette { if you don’t have any laying around you can make one very easily by folding 3 12×12 sheets of scrapbook paper together, turning them into fans & gluing them together} and glue on a 2″ paper circle. This will serve as the base the spoon circle is glued on to.

Step 4:  Glue your spoons onto your 2″ circle.

There sort of is 1 more step but I felt it kinda common sense plus how do you fit 5 steps into the cute little picture above?! Giggle. Cut out a banner from the printable below & glue on top. Don’t forget to punch a little hole in the back of your rosette to hang. Now you are good to go!

Have you created a wreath out of recycled items? Have you forgotten to serve items at your kiddo’s birthday party? I’d love to hear all about it.

DIY Muslin Favor Bags

Deliciously Darling | DIY Muslin Bag

Happy Tuesday! Sharing an adorable DIY Muslin Favor Bag Tutorial. Confession: I’m obsessed with Muslin / Linen drawstring bags. Beyond obsessed really. How adorable are they? Super adorable. What can you put in them? Anything that will fit, from sequins / business cards to sweet treats and jewelry. Back to to the tutorial, today’s tute involves a paper punch but tomorrow I’ll share a few tips on how to create your own stencil for custom muslin bags.

Run to your nearest Micheal’s Craft Store &  Target to gather these goodies:

Deliciously Darling | DIY Muslin Bag

Materials

-    Muslin Bags {Pick your Plum}

-    Freezer Paper

-    Martha Stewart Paint

-    Martha Stewart Glitter Glue

-    Martha Stewart Paper Punch

-    Sponge Brush

 

Directions

Punch & Position: Cut a piece of freezer paper and put in your punch. I found that it works best if the shiny side is down while punching. Then position your design {shiny side down} on your muslin bag.

Iron, Paint, Peel & Glitter: Iron on the design and grab your sponge brush and start applying the paint lightly. Wipe off your brush so you don’t get big paint globs. Paint globs lead to smudges and just don’t look pretty. {Tip: for intricate designs, use a Q-tip}. Wait for the paint to dry and then carefully peel off the freezer paper. At this point you can proceed to the last step but if you are a glitter girl like me, grab your Martha Stewart Glitter glue tube and just dazzle it up a little.

Final Step: Pat yourself on the back. You just created some cuteness.

Darling BlissDom 2013 Recap

Deliciously Darling | BlissDom 2013 Recap

SO where do I start!? It’s been about two weeks since I left for the BlissDom Conference. I’m still feeling the BlissDom glow. It was such an amazing experience! Trying to think of how to recap this experience hasn’t been easy. How do you sum up a weekend full of awesome in one blog post? Why not do a top 5? I always love top 5′s. So here it goes, my top 5 things I learned at my first BlissDom:

1 –  ”Knowledge + Passion = Profit” and “Twitter is a conversation not a dictation” – Scott Stratten. {Okay so that was sort of two things but they are both from the same guy so I’m gonna just count it as one}  Scott had the most amazing “on stage personality”. As the opening key note speaker, he got me fired up, excited and ready to start BlissDom {as if I weren’t already excited enough}. I  was literally laughing so hard at his stories and had a huge smile plastered to my face during his entire speech. Full of knowledge, I just loved listening to him and can’t wait to dive into his two books I picked up. Follow him on twitter, he’s beyond awesome.

2. “Creativity is not just about Time Management, it’s Energy Management” – Jon Acuff. Jon was one of my favorite speakers at BlissDom. Not only did his session rock but his speech as the closing Keynote wrapped up the conference so perfectly. During his “3 Stages of an Awesome Idea” session, he talked about energy management. It hit so close to home that I can’t believe I didn’t think about it earlier. His newest book “Start” was given to us at the end of the conference – it’s like the road map to life, I can’t recommend it enough. He tackles fear and why it slows us down. My goal is to not let my fear slow me down.

Want another reason why he’s awesome? Check out this video where he describes how it feels like to wear man spanxs under his shirts, lol – might be kind of hard to hear over our laughter:

3. “The future of business is marketing with people not at people” – John Morgan. John’s session was amazing. Seriously, I say that about every session but it was so true. So many amazing speakers. I digress, back to Mr. Morgan. He layed out 6 keys to Branding. He challenged us with thinking about how we are viewed as a company and how that differs from our competitors. Seriously awesome stuff.

4. “Would you rather be famous or successful?” – Jeff Goins. Great question Jeff. In his writing workshop, Jeff discussed the definition of Craft: An activity involving skill in making things by hand. Writing is a skill. One that I hope to improve on. Ooo and I’d choose success vs fame any day of the week.

5. “You are here for the Magic. There is magic in face to face conversations, shared experiences and meeting people you normally see as avatars on the web” – Alli, Barbara, Paula & The Bliss Chicks. In my opinion this was “the” point of BlissDom. For me, it was about meeting & connecting with amazing people. Listening to their experiences and applying them to my own. It was about taking time for me to grow as a business woman, as a blogger and most importantly as a person. I found out a lot about myself during BlissDom:  going through the workshops, talking to sponsors and meeting new people. I was totally there for the “magic”.

In closing, it was just a wonderful experience. I have lots of resources to go back and do what I need to do, I got to meet some amazing gals {some of whom are pictured below}, and I came home to two happy beautiful children & a sweet hubby. So very thankful that Mr. Darling is so supportive and appreciates his “dude’s only weekends” with his boys when mama is away for the occasional conference. I came back feeling refreshed and ready.

Here are some pictures of my fabulous trip to BlissDom 2013. If you follow me on Instagram chances are good you’ve seen some of these pics. For those of you who don’t, start following me on Instagram @deliciouslydarling. Ooo and while your at it on twitter @ddarlingevents #shamelessplug. First up: Some of my Lovely Friends {Note: wishing I could have grabbed a pic of everyone so if you aren’t below, I’m sorry – I still got mad love for you} -

row 6 || pic 1: I had to include one little picture of the French Macarons I brought to BlissDom. I stayed up late baking some yummies for some of my sweet friends, especially for Sandy from Firefly Confections {who brought us some of her famous caramels. You haven’t tasted heaven until you have had one of Sandy’s caramels. Not sure how you can taste heaven but you know what I mean!}. || pic 2: Got to meet Ana Gasteyer & Jeremy Sisto from Surburgatory. At this point Jeremy says “What’s your blog?”, I respond with “It’s an entertaining blog called Deliciously Darling”. Ana says “that sounds amazing”. To which I reply “sure is”. Yup. This happen in the few seconds I had to pose for this picture. LOL. Jeremy even did “rollin’ with the homies” for me. Throwback to Clueless. What a good sport. || pic 3: Came back to sweet, happy little boys that seemed to grow so much in the few days I was away from them. Could they be this big and mature sounding? Yup! They had a blast on “Dude’s only Weekend” with darlin’ daddy.

So I have to close out my recap with one more sweet tip from Jon Acuff. Wanna know how to “dominate” Instagram? Tilt your pics to the side. Regular picture = nice. Tilted picture = poem  So now I’m hashtag-ing everything #poem #dominate. Giggle:

Okay so I usually don’t write this much in my blog posts. Desserts, Crafts & Parties are all about images, so THANK YOU for reading this far. I really had a blast and I hope it shows!

A Personal Note

Deliciously Darling | Look at how you Shine, Darling

Image Source

It’s been a whirlwind of a few weeks, months really. I just wanted to take a moment and share a personal note. Some of you may have noticed that I’ve gone from “Deliciously Darling Events” to simply “Deliciously Darling”. A newly redesigned blog & updated logo {by the fabulous Michele of Intrigue Design Studio}, new business cards, new branding materials, every-thang new!

Why the change? Well, after many months of running full speed I’ve realized that I need to slow down and enjoy the little moments with my family. My kids are growing so fast – way too fast. My time with them is very precious to me. I’m sure you all feel that way about your families. So I am shifting gears from being an Events company to inspiring others to create their own events. Sharing more tutorials, recipes and more inspiration. I’m hoping to inspire you to find that planner hidden in you. I will still take on the occasional client but only the handful that truly inspire me to create something fresh & different.

In addition to my focus to inspire others, I’ll also be opening a wee-little Etsy shop in the next few weeks. I plan on selling party decor from my past & future events as well as little adorable party items. I don’t plan on becoming a party supply shop, there are so many amazing ladies with amazing party supply shops out there.

I want to thank each and every one of you! You guys give me the motivation to Shine. You all inspire me so much & your support means the world to me. Thank you for taking the time to read posts, to flip through albums, to comment, to “like” & to “share”. You guys are incredible.

Adorable Easter Chick Dessert Table

Deliciously Darling | Easter Chick Dessert Table #easter #yellow Happy Monday!!! Bringing you just a little bit of sunshine today {since it is gloomy in Atlanta} with an Adorable Easter Chick Dessert table. Since we will be celebrating Easter at Epcot this year we celebrated Easter early. Truth be told, we celebrated Easter on St. Patty’s Day. 

Inspiration: Ever since I saw the Movie hop, I kept thinking about the having a little chick Easter party. I walked through Sur la Table and saw the cutest Yellow Chick cake stand, had to get it – justified it by saying it’s the centerpiece to my chick party but honestly, I couldn’t resist the cuteness! There is something bright and refreshing about a yellow color pallet. So I went through my party supply stash and pulled out a few pieces to pull together this sweet little dessert table. Sweet & Simple.

Huge thank you to Kathi from My Sweet Things for creating the adorable yellow ribbon cake & chick cookies. Seriously, the cookies are too cute and just delicious.

DIY Glitter Note Cards


Deliciously Darling | DIY Glitter Notecards

Happy Glittery Tuesday! Today’s tutorial is all about glitter note cards. I’ve been deep in the re-branding process – from updating the logo, website, business cards, etc. I noticed I needed to create some sweet little note cards, glittery of course!

Deliciously Darling | DIY Glitter Notecards

All you are going to need are the following items, most of which can be found at your local Michael’s Craft Store:

- Your favorite stamp {Note: Any stamp will do, think Easter ones for little Easter note cards or “Thank you” stamps for Thank you notes. You get the idea.}

- Recollections Glitter {I used Antique Gold}

- Martha Stewart Crafts Glue Pad

-  Blank Note cards

- Glitter catching tray {A paper plate will do but I do love my little Recollections Glitter Tray}

Deliciously Darling | DIY Glitter Notecards

In 4 easy steps you’ll have your little glitter note card:

1. Pour the glue on the glue pad per directions on the package

2. Press stamp on glue pad then press onto your note card.

3. Sprinkle glitter on the note card

4. Dust your note card off with a clean brush to get loose glitter off and do a little happy dance. Don’t forget to pat yourself on the back for being so Crafty.
