Tic Tac® DIY Wedding Favor Idea with Free Printables!!



If you follow me on Instagram, would've have seen a  little sneak peak of today's post using Tic Tac®
mints as a wedding favor idea. Tic Tac's goal is to "Shake Things Up", and I was thrilled when they asked me to come up with a fun packaging idea for a wedding favor!  

Tic Tac®  packs remind me confetti, little colored sprinkles, perfect for weddings. So I wanted a modern vibe for the packaging, something that would be meaningful for a wedding, but also add a modern/funky twist to shake thing up ;) 

Naturally, I turned to printables. And glitter. 'Cause if you can't have a bit of bling on your wedding day...when can ya?!

My Book | Les Party Printables out now!

party-printables-book-ideas


So beyond excited (and a tad relieved), to be able to share this news! Been keeping this under wraps since last summer when I got signed to write the book

The day I received the news, it didn't quite sink in. And all the months that followed. Not until I actually had the printed book in my hands earlier this month, so it's kinda cool that I waited. It feels more real now! :)

Bejeweled Pink Rose Truffles Recipe for HGTV




This is the last post of Wedding series for HGTV, and we're ending on a super sweet note!

These pretty truffles are super yummy but so easy to make - as with anything I bake ;)
Their "bejeweled" effect is achieved by rolling the truffles in pink sugar pearls.

FREE Printable + DIY Framed Table Numbers for Weddings




As part of my recent wedding story for HGTV, I got to play with spray paint and create my very own mini pedestal stands. I had found some vintage pink saucers in a flea marked, and all I needed was to spray paint some ceramic candlesticks to match. 

I have to say I was hooked - Not only was it easy to make, so pretty, but also way more inexpensive than buying individual stands. Now I have all sorts of plans for making larger DIY ceramic cake and cupcake stand - So watch this space! ;)

How to Make Crepe Paper Roses for Floral Bouquets



When I was younger, I didn't understand the fascination with giving or receiving flowers. Yes, I know, shocking! I thought it was a real waste since the gift wouldn't last long. Now I am a lot less pragmatic and totally adore giving and receiving them (you reading, husband?). But these crepe paper flowers still appeal to my practical side as they would make perfect memento of any special day or occasion!

I made these pretty blooms for my recent wedding shoot for HGTV. But they are good for all occasions!

How to Make Your Own Wedding Cake!



I'm no professional baker, so the thought of making a DIY wedding cake for my latest project for HGTV was a little daunting. But then I realized that with anything homemade, the beauty is in the "journey" as much as in the final product. 

So I went with a less is more approach. Basic pound cake, simply frosted with vanilla cream cheese frosting (thanks to all the masterclasses in Caking it Pretty!). 

The "wow factor" came from some easy to make (yes, honestly!) fondant roses, which I displayed in a cascading fashion on the front of the cake.

I must say, the results exceeded my wildest expectations, and I loved how it turned out. Minimum effort (well, nearly...) and maximum satisfaction = My kind of baking! ;)

DIY Wedding Ideas for HGTV + FREE Printable Wedding Stationery!!!



So mega excited to finally share my latest project for HGTV !!!

My inspiration for parties and printables usually comes from my kids, and so naturally; I've always gravitate towards all-things-geared-for-little-ones. So it was mega refreshing to be tackling a subject that I don't often get to work on - Weddings!! ♥
