1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Re: Animal Faces Cascarones 2015 on: April 06, 2015 08:15:16 AM
I dont use confetti. Last year I used rice crispy cereal and this year I used bird seed, that way we only have to pick up the egg shells.

They are beautiful! I wish I could do that, I am terrible at painting. All of them are very pretty; my favorite is the blue one with the daisies.

The animals faces are plain paper embellishments. I search (google images) for animals faces that matched the colors of the egg dye kit.  Smiley

Last year was the first time I made Cascarones for my granddaughters.  They were a smashing success =) so this year the Easter Cascarones are back!

To make them different from the flower decorated cascarones of last year (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=432884.0, this year I decorated them with little animal faces embellishments.

These are some of the eggs that the Easter Bunny will bring to my family  Wink

Happy Easter Everyone!
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Easter Peep Diorama - PBS Sherlock - on: March 18, 2015 04:27:16 PM
We have a Easter Peep Diorama contest going on in the family.
This is my Peep Diorama: BBC (PBS) Sherlock 221B Baker Street Living room.

Because I am a Sherlock nerd fan, I search and found the wallpaper for both walls of the Living Room. I also included the A-Z London Street Atlas guide from the second episode, The Blind Banker and of course Sherlocks violin.

 I like the way the mirrorover the fireplace mantel reflects the famous wallpaper.

The books on the coffee table are, Fingerprints Analysis and Understanding & Crime and Criminology.
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Sangria bottle crochet scarf and hat. on: December 03, 2014 04:00:59 PM
On Sunday I went shopping to Cost Plus World Market and saw some very cute wine bottle covers on sale for $14.99. Too much $ for my taste, so 25 minutes and some yarn later, here is my first set of holiday wine bottle scarf & hat.

Update: Two more sets Wink

Set #2

Soda Pop bottle scarf & hat set for my son that is a fan to unusual soda pop flavors.

My suggestions:
Personalized Water Bottle Labels in blue gingham paper.
Dorothys ruby slippers favor boxes with Lollipops, of course! You can find a free shoe favor box pattern on line, very easy.
Cupcakes toppers with all the Wizard of Oz characters.
Flying monkeys cutout graphics and hang them as decorations
I agree with kittykill, photo props are easy to make and lots of fun and I love the courage badge idea. You can add the Tin Man's heart from Cherry Jello heart jigglers.

Thank you killkitty. The true is that I love planning themed parties. I tend to go overboard in the beginning stages of the planning and usually I have to scale it down a bit =)
For this year birthday I stared planning a high tea party theme with unique teapots as centerpieces and teacups but wasnt really suitable for kids, when the older ones are only 4 years old.
I am saving all my unique teapots and teacups for a future bridal shower for my future daughter in law.

Very cute! My favorite is Magic, because I love fall colors but all 4 are very pretty.
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Tea Time Birthday Party - Image overload - on: August 18, 2014 12:17:26 PM
Hello Crafty Ladies,
Another birthday party under our belt!
This years birthday party theme for my twin granddaughters 4th birthday was Tea Time.
Cake Table

This is what planned and put together for their party.
First thing, I got the girls birthday outfits and sandals.

I google image search for a teapot & teacup graphic with the same colors of the girls birthday dresses to make the decorations, tags, water bottle & sandwiches  labels and cupcake toppers with the same color palette.

Party Favors:
For the girls:  Hats and matching purses.

Inside the purse each girl got a handkerchief matching the hat and purse color, a pearl necklace and a white fan.

I made the birthday girls hat and purse a little more distinct than the rest by changing the small white daisy to a bigger flower matching their dress colors and a pink tulle ruffle.  Also their while fan is decorate in gold instead of silver.

For the boys: A plastic top hat and a gentleman favor box with a white handkerchief, a bow tie and a mustache.

Ladies Photo Props Hats, pearls necklaces and mustaches for the men to take funny pictures.

Birthday Party Sign It wasnt my best handwriting but because I forgot to buy a second black poster in case of making a mistake, this one had to do.

The Centerpieces

Juice Boxes & Personalized Water Bottles. Sweet Tea & Raspberry Ice Tea
The party venue place encouraged/suggested juice boxes for the kids. To add a little of the theme I made them a teacup embellishment.

I made the Chicken Salad, Cuban Ham Spread and Flower Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwiches.
My daughter made the Cucumber Sandwiches, Vegetable Tray and Fruit Salad.
Chocolate and Strawberry Pirouline Tray.
Merengues I added pink flowers and green hearts sugar sprinkles to store bought merengues.

Cookie Boxes Favors
