Hooray for event planning! I’ll admit that I didn’t really do much of the planning for this event but I did try to make sure that the details were Pinterest worthy! 🙂
Here are some of the little touches that I added to make the event memorable.
The Chalk Board
Writing on chalk boards can be difficult but with a little practice and a special reflections brand chalk stick, I’ve pretty much got it down pat. This was a great way to greet the guests as they approached the venue and also to reassure them that they were at the right place.
The Dessert Bar
I was going for a rustic garden look so I mixed wood with fresh flowers as well as many beautiful desserts and treats. And of course I had to sneak in a little rhyme, “love is sweet please take a treat”.
The Bubbly Bar
Since this venue is an old home, I thought it was a good idea to spruce it up with some more modern and fun decor, thus distracting from the dark vibes in certain areas. I mean, take away the balloons and the banner and this could be a set from American horror story. A little glitter can work wonders!
Check out my last DIY blog to see how I made the banner!
So there you have it, focus on the details and it will be a picture perfect event!
Today, my friend Chelsea and I decided to attempt to make cake pops for the first time. Although we messed up on a few minor things, we learned what to do differently next time! We decided to make them “Valentines Day” themed since it’s only a couple of weeks away!
So if you’d like to try and make these tasty treats for your valentine, here’s what you’ll need:
Cake mix of your choice – we used red velvet and vanilla (mixed with sprinkles)
The ingredients required on your box of cake mix – eggs, water, oil
Frosting of your choice – we used cream cheese frosting
Dipping chocolate of your choice – we got chocolate and vanilla
Cake pop sticks – we used straws, I wouldn’t reccomend it
Sprinkles and any other toppings you can think of
Styrofoam – to stick them in while they dry
Now add 1/2 cup of cream cheese frosting
A happy accident… We just added more sprinkles!
Place them in the freezer for 30 minutes.
One of our minor mistakes was that we forgot to buy foam or something of the sort to stick the pops in after dipping and decorating them. We poked holes in a cardboard box instead, it worked but it was sketchy and not pretty. (Which is why I won’t post a picture of it)
Allow them to dry and either eat them or package them up to give to your Valentine! ❤️💕
