Peach & Mint Bridal Shower + Peach Cocktail

It’s wedding season and that means bridal showers! I’m in love with the soft hues of peach and mint. This color combination makes me think of the south… of home.

In my opinion, choosing the color palette for your wedding has to be one of the toughest decisions for the big day… beyond choosing the right man of course. {wink} Everything from your bridesmaid dresses, flower arrangements, invitations, linens, ribbons, favors… and on and on… and on… will reflect the colors you’ve chosen.

Or… if you were like me… for those moments when you just needed to “escape” from all the pressures of planning the big day. {grin}

This sparkling Peach Fuzzy Navel cocktail is one of my favorites! Not only is it yummy and light, but it’s so pretty when paired with fresh fruit.

Easy Glitter Wine Glass Markers {Personalized For Pennies}

Having guests over for drinks? Need some glass markers? It seems I never have enough or they don’t match my party’s theme. So in my recent girls night in party post I shared a peek at these fun and simple glittered wine glass markers that only cost pennies to make.

Easy-DIY-Glitter-Wine-Glass-Markers-Kim-Byers

 

I’ve shared this sparkle tape (aka glitter washi tape) from Darice before (also available at JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores), and every time I use it I love it more. The glitter really shines and you could practically sand a table with it and no glitter would fall off. It’s perfect for embellishing gifts, crafting and oh yes, DIY party ideas! {grin}

To make these simple drink markers you’ll need:

Cut several lengths of tape, fold in half and trim out a triangle, peel off adhesive and stick to glass, write on your guest’s names. Done!

And here’s how darling the glitter drink markers can look on a pretty and delicious drink recipe. You don’t want to mix these glasses up. Trust me, you want every last drop of my Raspberry Acai Pineapple Champagne Cocktail.

Both this DIY glitter wine glass marker and this recipe will be perfect for New Year’s Eve too! {wink}

  4. Draw football threads with a Painters pen.

10 Healthy Cold Summer Treats

Along with the summer heat come cold summer treats. And since I’m always looking for ways to keep my kids healthy, and my little one with food allergies included and happy, I buy “all fruit” treats as much as possible. Thank goodness for amazing fruit bars like Frutarre.

Healthy Summer Treats | TheCelebrationShoppe.com

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Fruttare, but all my opinions are my own. I’d have it no other way! #itsallgood #pmedia  http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Fruttare Fruit & Juice Bars are bursting with real fruit taste, creamy milk, or refreshing juice. My boys loved them…

Balloon Fight

and as you can see wouldn’t even put them down while balloon fighting at our Memorial Day friends and family party. {grin}

There are 10 delicious flavors to choose from like Strawberry & Milk, Peach & Milk, Banana & Milk, Black Cherry, Pineapple, Lime, and more! We celebrated with the Strawberry & Milk and the Mango. Oh… the Mango! It was like eating a real one and only 60 calories!

I picked my Fruttare up at Kroger, but they’re available nationwide.

You can find out more about this wonderfully refreshing treat by following them on facebook!

Peanut Butter Corn Flake Balls

My mom first made Peanut Butter Corn Flake Balls when I was about eight years old and they’ve graced all of our holiday parties ever since. I warn you… they are addicting.

Peanut Butter Corn Flake Balls | recipe by Kim Byers of TheCelebrationShoppe.com

Make Peanut Butter Corn Flake Balls for your family!

You’ll need: 

This is a no-bake recipe and here are the super simple steps:

  1. Mix sugar and Karo well in a saucepan and place over low heat until sugar melts into Karo and no longer grainy.
  2. Raise mixture to a rolling boil for one minute. (Be very careful not to burn the mixture. It will likely spindle when it’s ready.)
  3. Remove from heat and quickly add vanilla and peanut butter. Still into boiling mixture and quickly add Corn Flakes stirring constantly.
  4. Spoon into buttered pan for squares or allow to cool a few minutes, coat your hands in butter and roll.

NOTE: They will harden into a brittle like candy, but can easily be made soft again by heating for 5-7 seconds in the microwave.

Yields 20 medium balls.

I hope you’ll give them a try. For more cookie recipes, visit me at Snackpicks or follow me on Pinterest and browse my Foodie {Cookies} Board.

Easy Carrot Cake for Easter & Garden Parties

Easter is only a few days away and how better to welcome the bunny than with carrot cake!

11a-The-Celebration-Shoppe-Easter-Carrot-Cake-7547wt

12a-The-Celebration-Shoppe-Easy-Carrot-Cake-7489

If you’re a great baker, make your mom’s carrot cake recipe and flat ice it with a rich buttercream frosting . . . if you’re not a great baker, no worries. This cake idea is still for you! Just order your flat iced carrot cake from your local grocer or bakery.

14-The-Celebration-Shoppe-Carrot-Cake-7578

You can keep it simple like the top two carrot cake images, or you can create a cake topper!

15-The-Celebration-Shoppe-Carrot-Cupcake-7645

You can even embellish carrot cake cupcakes. The Easter bunny will appreciate all of your carrot cake . . . no matter the size! {grin}

To embellish this easy carrot cake and these carrot cake cupcakes, you’ll need:

  • Orange and green (this one is glitter) cardstock
  • Sharp scissors (dull ones will tear your paper and make your cut choppy)
  • Lollipop sticks (available in the baking section of your local craft store)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Orange and white sixlet candies (available at your local candy store)
  • Tip: Use a cake stand with a small lip so that the candies don’t roll

16-The-Celebration-Shoppe-Carrot-Cake-7590

To make the carrot decorations for your cake and cupcakes:

  1. Cut out the carrots. For the small cupcake carrots and side of cake carrots, think snowman, three bumps. Once you have one you like, use it as a template so your carrots are all the same size. For the larger carrots for the top of the cake, cut five bumps.
  2. For the carrot leaves, cut out a lopsided heart.
  3. Attach the leaves to the carrots.
  4. Attach the carrots to lollipop sticks. For the side of the cake, cut the lollipop stick in half and hot glue the flat end to the back of the carrot. For the top of the cake and cupcakes, glue the lollipop stick to the back of the carrot.
  5. Insert the lollipop sticks into your cake and cupcakes.

As always I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate!

Talking Creative and Themed Easter Baskets with JoAnn & Fox28

Kim Byers talking Easter baskets with JoAnn and Fox 28 Columbus

I created four themed Easter baskets (all items, even the baskets were from JoAnn Fabric & Craft Stores): science basket, baker’s basket, crafter’s basket and a gardener’s basket. I think the gardener’s basket was my favorite.

I hope you’ll watch for all the details (no giggling please) and tune back in tomorrow for better pictures of the gardener’s basket I created for my mom!
