splash bash fun food

Looking for party food ideas? Well, you’ve come to the right blog. Food doesn’t have to be complicated to be fun and yummy! For your next pool party serve these “inner tubes!” {snicker} They’ll go over well with guests.

And I wasn’t sure the “rafts” (aka sugar wafers) were going to make our pool party. I actually was probably the worst culprit. They remind me of my childhood and I kept thinking, one more won’t matter. My thighs may feel differently, but they were yummy and perfect for a pool party snack!

good ole water balloon fight

Who doesn’t love a water balloon fight?! And it makes a great party game for a pool party or summer gathering!

When styling our new Splash Bash collection and additions to our Deep Blue Sea collection, my sons got into a huge water balloon fight in our front yard with the neighbor kids (okay… and my husband) and so we said why not have one at the party shoot too. It gets the kids giggling and makes for a great time.

These are a few of my favorite shots that Angie of Angie Arthur Photography captured!

Gathering ammo.

Catching some air!

The war face. I LOVE this one. These two are brother and sister. Can you tell?!

More intensity. These kids meant business!

The bounce. Some of the water balloons just refused to burst. You can see the one in midair that just bounced right off her side. Trust me, it wasn’t because he wasn’t throwing hard!

And when all the balloons were gone, there was “the drench.” I just love how Angie captured the water in this one!

In the end, cookies, from our partners at Sweet Tooth Cottage, and cupcakes embellished with our crab and SPLASH cupcake picks, brought them all back together. It’s funny how sugar can do that! {wink}

You can find all of my pool party supplies in the party store!

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

These lovely (and amazingly soft and yummy) cookies are just a small peek into our Deep Blue Sea party supplies collection shoot from late June. My sweet and super talented friend Angie Arthur of Angie Arthur Photography captured the day and all the fun that came with it!

I have tons to share, but I thought I would kick the week off with the custom butter cookies from our partners at Sweet Tooth Cottage. You’ll notice our crazy crab, fish and starfish (he was so simple, but so pretty!) from the Deep Blue Sea collection.

half birthday cupcakes

I mentioned a few days ago that my little guy, who is a June birthday, would be celebrating his “half” birthday at preschool this week since all the winter birthday kiddos get to bring in snacks and celebrate during the school year. I think it’s really a nice gesture on his teacher’s part (thanks Mrs. England!). So although I found some wonderful allergy-free ideas (my little guy has a severe dairy allergy), I decided to go with what I knew his friends would like… cupcakes.

But then I was at a loss. I kept asking what “theme” he might want on his cupcakes and he just wasn’t excited about anything (something we’ll have to work hard on by his next birthday since I’m not sure what will beat his dino-roar party in the eyes of this dinosaur loving boy!). So at the end of the day I got silly. {wink}

He and all his little buddies got a cupcake and a half, or better a cupcake and a mini cupcake. His cupcake had the number four in his favorite color, blue (ooohhhh, these cupcake wrappers would go great with our deep blue sea collection too), on the large cupcake and his small cupcake was the half symbol (it still makes me smile!). And all his little friends got two cupcakes too. I’m sure the moms were loving me that afternoon!

The dots and the numbers were just fondant and I promise if you can use a cookie cutter you can make these yourself. You can find white fondant in the baking section of your craft store and I recommend gel food coloring if you want to tint it (it stains your hands so use a resealable plastic bag over your hands to massage in the food coloring). Just tint, roll it out like cookie dough, cut out your shapes and ta-da you have adorable cupcakes! By the way, for dairy free cupcakes, I used Classic Yellow Duncan Hines cake mix (with apple sauce in place of oil… just my preference) and Pillsbury’s chocolate and dark chocolate icing (that’s right, no dairy!).

As always, I hope you’re inspired!

luau cookie placecards

the-celebration-shoppe_palm-tree-surf-board-cookie-placecard

We shot our new luau collection yesterday. As usual it was a lot of fun and a lot of work. And for those of you who follow me on Twitter or ”like” the shoppe on Facebook (links in upper left corner) you know we had a few cookie catastrophes yesterday. This beautiful palm tree cookie on the left took a nose dive off the table just after this shot. I admit that I mourned it for a few seconds before I could move on. And the surf board on the right suffered an attack from my 3 year old. At least that happened after the shoot was over. {Who could really blame him, right?}

This collection is truly beautiful and will be perfect whether for a child’s birthday, an adult summer get together or a destination wedding engagement party. I’m really excited to share all the details with you early next week. Until then, I thought I would share my luau placecard and favor idea. 

I picked up some tin pails at the local craft store (washed them really well) and filled them with brown sugar for my sand. I then iced these fun cookies and piped the guests’ names on. Not only are these a great way to mark your placesettings, but they’re also wonderful as a favor for your guests to leave with. I’ll post a pictorial on how to ice them in a few days with some tips on how to make them stand. (The cookie cutters will be part of the new collection coming to the shoppe early next week.)

Have a great weekend everyone!

DIY toss game

diy-toss-game

And last but not least for our deep blue sea bash, we made a toss game to match our party theme. The great thing about this is you could change the shapes and fabric to match any kind of party theme. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 yards of coordinating fabric
  • 3 pre-cut squares of coordinating felt
  • plywood (or foam board if you don’t have a saw handy)
  • fabric glue
  • staple gun

And here are the super simple steps:

  1. Have the hardware store cut your board to size (3′ x 4′) and have someone handy with a saw to cut your circular holes.
  2. Cover the board with fabric using a staple gun.
  3. Next find the center of each hole, cut a small slit and then cut strips folding the fabric back to cover the hole sides and stapling them in place.
  4. Cut out a fish template from the felt and then a circle in the center, the same size as the hole in the board. Apply the fish with fabric glue.
  5. Finally cut out numbers for each hole and apply those with fabric glue.

We placed ours on an easel that my hubby whipped up, but you could lean it against a tree or make small wooden feet for yours. As for what to throw, use either balls or beanbags and hand out prizes for all those who play! Happy crafting.
