Following on from yesterday's Santa inspired post, I thought I'd share the DIY for the cupcakes I made to match my Christmas Candyland desserts table.
I used sugar paste fondant and printable toppers to decorate the cupcakes. It's not rocket science - more like playing with modelling clay! :)

If you follow me on Instagram, you'd have seen a few sneak peeks of these cute Santa cake pops, and today I'm sharing the easy step-by-step tutorial.
My seven year old daughter helped me with these ( you can see her little hands in the photos, bless ) and they are perfect to entertain little ones over the Holiday period.
I used them for my desserts table at the Marie Claire salon in Paris in November, but they would be cool as a party favor or cute gift too. I see them all wrapped up in cellophane paper for hot cocoa stations or even as part of a Christmas gourmet hamper!
Great for using up left over cake too...wait, what left-over cake?! ;)

Can you believe Christmas is nearly here? If you're stuck for ideas on fab and affordable gifts, decor and Holiday treats, take a peek in our Holiday Guide here.
Speaking of treats, today we're sharing of the cutest recipes (approved by Martha Stewart herself!!). Yes, when it comes to Norene Cox of Party Pinching, recipes can totally look cute too!
If that was not enough, we're also giving away one digital copy of Norene's book Sweet Treats for The Holidays!!
Double celebration, did you say?! It calls for some cookies, I think... ;)

But the key is to prep as much as you can in advance. And ask for help!
So in the spirit of sharing, with the help of Foodie.com; I've compiled a collection of recipes to help you on your way - Including several turkey recipe ideas, sides, condiments, desserts and treats (making my mouth water already...).

“Where’d you get those awesome Christmas cards?” is one of the things we all love to hear after choosing, creating and sending Christmas cards each year, right?! ;)
And the answer (for me, at least!) is always Pear Tree. The cards that everyone loves the most are usually their unique holiday photo cards that have special interactive features like their new spinner cards, or picture frame cards.
They may have multiple pages like their photo book cards, or unusual shapes like the ornament cards. And any card with a ribbon or real gold foil automatically gets my thumbs up for awesomeness! ♥

Last year we did a round up of gorgeous tablescape for Thanksgiving, so this year we're sharing some fun party ideas for the kids table.
This stunning Thanksgiving party was featured first on Bird's Party Magazine a while back, and styled by Alexandra from Enchanted Events and Designs.
The idea is to make the Thanksgiving kids table inviting enough so the kids will want to sit put. For a little while at least...So crafts, activities and practical but FUN decorations are a must!
Disclaimer: Be warned! You may even get some adults wishing they could sit there too ;)

When life gives you lemons, sometimes is hard to think about making lemonade.
Especially when what you reeeally wanted to begin with, was a huge slice of comforting lemon meringue pie :)
If my sweet analogy doesn't really cut the lemon curd (sorry...pun intended.), what I'm trying to say is; we don't always get what we want . Stuff happens.
But most certainly, there's always, ALWAYS, something to be thankful for!
