basketball birthday bash

When Paula from Party Like Paula sent us her son, Jake’s, Basketball Birthday Bash, I knew it was a slam dunk! {wink} She did a fabulous job transforming this classic basketball theme (Jake’s favorite sport, of course!) into a party with some punch.

From the strikingly simple color palette of black and white referee stripes with basketball orange, to the scoreboard backdrop over the dessert table, Paula scores big with the little touches that make a big impact. My absolute favorite item, though, is the DIY basketball dessert stands she crafted using mini basketballs and frisbees!

Other note-worthy party details include a fun DIY door wreath, balloon pillars, basketball centerpiece… all items you’ll want to bounce on over to Party Like Paula to see!

Happy Birthday, Jake!

 As always, we hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and CELEBRATE!

simple Super Bowl cookies

footballcookie1 With the Super Bowl only a few days away, here’s a little inspiration to help you bring your theme to the table.  All you need is a stick of refrigerated gingerbread cookie dough and a can of white icing.  

Bake your cookies (see a few tips on cookies keeping their shape in the oven), allow them to cool completely on a wire rack and then ice. Simply take a resealable bag and spoon in your white icing. Snip one corner and pipe your lines.

Simple, fun and your guests will love them. Happy baking!
