Ahoy! I'm hosting a pirate party this weekend and put together these sails to go on top of Rice Crispy Treats. There is the tutorial for you!
First take two pieces of printed card stock and cut them in shapes of how you'd like your sails. I made the top one large, and the bottom one a little smaller. You will also need a bamboo stick, scissors and your hot glue gun.
Once you have your sails cut out, you need to cut a piece off leaving the middle section. That will be the piece folding and glued to the bamboo stick.
Next, glue the top piece of your sail to the bamboo stick, letting it completely dry before you glue the bottom piece. Once dried, bend the sail and clue to bottom part to the stick.
Repeat this above step for your bottom sail. Once dry, your sail is complete! Use on a cake, any dessert, or whatever will work for your party! Enjoy!!

I had the pleasure of helping a friend with her wedding this past weekend! She chose a beach theme since she grew up and still lives right on the ocean. The colors were blues and white. I founds some beautiful sea shell covered balls that I hung on the banisters with navy tulle. I also used lanterns and filled them with flame less candles. I strung the lanterns above the stairway entrance into the reception site. I also mixed in star fish that I hot glued to some ribbon. It turned out really pretty together. And once the lights were dimmed, the lanterns really stood out.
For the favors, the bride chose a candle with monogrammed matches. We placed them in a navy organza bags and tied with ribbon and a personalized favor tag we punched with my go to scallop punch.
How gorgeous does the cupcake tower look? I love how brides are choosing cupcakes instead of cake. It's very trending right now and I love how the display looks. The cupcakes were chocolate and vanilla with butter cream frosting. White chocolate star fish were places on the cupcakes as well as fresh hydrangea flowers.
I hope you enjoyed the pictures!

Here's quick post while I'm on vacation. I recently created a party in a box for my mother who was hosted a bunco party for her friends. I stuck with red, white and black colors. I made her cupcake toppers, favor tags, a banner and water bottle labels. She did a great job setting the party up herself!
She made really cute cupcakes! She used sugar cubes and an edible marker and made dice. Love them!
She even used the water labels for vase wrappers. Smart idea! The lips were also on the table which are a free printable from Living Locurto.
