Every morning I bring my husband tea in bed. Can't really remember when it started, but that's how we roll.
He loves tea. And love him. So that's probably why...
Anyways, this Valentine's I decided to serve a little extra sweetness along with the tea.

Hi, it's Hani from Haniela's. Are you getting ready for the Valentine's Day? Here is a cute idea to add to your Valentine's Cookie repertoire - Heart Balloon Cookies!
Step-by-step + recipe below.
There's nothing more loving in my view than a box of homemade, edible delights. I mean, taking the time to say "I Love You" or "You Matter" with a box of sugary things, makes for a pretty special gift, don't think?! :)
Our contributor Gillian from Crumbs of Comfort Cake Design thinks so too. Check out her recipe for the most pretty and scrumptious Valentine's Heart Cookies below.

Hey guys, I'm guest posting today over on GigMasters.com, so come on over and check out the Cheesy Fun Fondue Party + French-inspired 'Fondue Savoyarde' Recipe?! :)
I love thinking up new ideas on how to re-purpose printables. Take a sheet of printable scrapbook paper + some heart favor tags, for instance - the possibilities are truly endless!
I hate waste also, and have used the off cuts of the paper to embellish some pretty cute Valentine's Cutlery Pockets! Step-by-step below...
EXCITED to see all the fabulous entries over on Superchickland's Valentine's Day Kandy Kone Challenge!!
I'm guest judging along with Pizzazzerie's darling, Courtney Dial and SuperChick herself, Geneviève - All I can say it's gonna be hard to choose....
BTW, which one is YOUR fave?! I'd love some help! ;)
Nice to start the week spreading the luuurve, right?! :)

OK, so we're all geared up for Valentine's here and will be bringing you some super fabulous posts in the next few weeks!
I'm a sucker for easy recipes (pun intended) and there's nothing easier than these Valentine's Heart Lollipops - Wait for it...Made with left over candy canes from Christmas! How cool is that?! :)
I saw the idea a while back on Pinterest, and just had to try it - We always get tons of candy cane left over from Christmas and this is also the perfect way to use them up!
My kids got involved in the making of course, and fun was had all round - Bonus, for when you're stuck indoors due to cold weather! ;)

Today I'm blogging over on GigMasters.com with some fun ideas for winter birthdays. But just stopped over to share some fab news!
Can't help it but be so proud and excited for my sweet friends and blog contributors, when the limelight is on them! And deservedly so, because not only they are incredibly creative and talented women, they are all so sweet and totally fabulous friends!
Crissy from Crissy's Crafts has recently had her work featured on a HUGE national magazine in Brazil - Claudia Bebe. Check it out...
Following on from my posts last week on styling a Hot Cocoa Bar here and here, I thought it would really be handy to share a recipe on how to make lHomemade Marshmallows! ;)
I know you may be thinking - "Why the heck would I want to make my own marshmallows" - Well, I thought that too...BEFORE I made them!! The taste for starters, is beyond dreamy (and quite addictive). Plus, it's a real fun thing to make (with or without kids). AND if that wasn't enough to convince you, making your own marshmallows means you can color them and cut them in any shape you like to match your party theme and colors perfectly! ;)

Speaking of which, for my Hot Cocoa Bar post for GigMasters, I came across some super fun ideas when brainstorming for the shoot! As any self-respecting stylists and pin-addict, I naturally pinned quite a few....Here are some of my faves.

Hi this is Dorangela from Two Prince Bakery Theater, excited to be here with you today!
My darling boy turned 5 recently and he has a slight obsession with Spider-Man, so there was no question what theme his party would have to be! Not only did we have a theme, we also knew it would have to be completely gluten free in order for both of my boys to be able to enjoy it all!
I am not one to throw parties that are too character based, as in using all character plates etc., so I decided to do a vintage feel. I was lucky enough to get Bird's Party Spider Hero Printables which worked perfectly. I love the primary colors and vintage feel!

The new year brings a new diary full of commitments but also new and exciting adventures, and I'm delighted to be joining the awesome team over at Gig Masters as their newest contributing blogger!
My first post is up on their site today - "How to Style a Hot Cocoa Bar".
There's nothing better than a good old Cheese and Wine Party to warm your cockles in the cold winter months! It's quite a relaxed way to entertain in my view, but also a fun way to savor the remaining goodies left from your Christmas pantry!
Now that my kids are schooled full time, hubby and I find ourselves having romantic lunch dates. Hence this impromptu little tablescape! ;)
Hope you like these quick ideas + some FREE printables for you to download!
OK, so Christmas has been and gone but there's nothing wrong with a little forward planning! I know come the end of the year, I am like a headless chicken with a thousand and one things to tick off my check list...
So this is where pinning some crafty ideas throughout the year will save me (and you) a heap of time! And AllFreeChristmasCrafts.com has done half of the work for us, compiling a website PACKED with ahem...all free Christmas crafts!
There's nothing like catching up with friends after a long break, right?! Glad to be back to our normal blogging schedule and seeing so many fab parties out there! Are you ready to join us?! :)
We have some fabulous ideas to show you, including the stunning parties from our last monthly link up (scroll down for the links)! And would so LOVE to see what you've been up to! So go on, link up your party posts and go mingle!
Happy New Year sweet friends! :)
Back to blogging properly next week (with a link party on Monday!) but just came over to share the first piece of good news of 2013 - The STUNNING Dinosaur Birthday Party styled by Crissy's Crafts is being featured on Pizzazzerie!! Woo-Hoo! :)
