Saint Patrick's day is in three days, and if you're looking for quick and easy table decor ideas or last minute decorations, than this post is for you! πŸ˜‰ Did you see the pretty rainbow balloon arch we shared last week? Well, this DIY is a spin off, since we used the same technique to make a garland that you can use to decorate walls or as a table runner! We also made a quick video to help explain how we achieve this look with a simple party trick using regular balloons!

Valentine's Day is 'round the corner, and if you're looking for a quick and simple, yet tasty dessert for your party, or simply to pleasure a loved one; then this is it! πŸ˜‰ This is my go-to quick route when baking cupcakes.

Plus, I find the combination of chocolate and Mascarpone such a marriage made in cupcake heaven...so creamy and luscious! YUM!

Just shows you can create something special and last-minute, without much effort. And THAT is my fav kind of craft!! πŸ˜‰

DIY Christmas Ornament Baubles Garland

DIY Christmas Ornament Baubles Garland

I created this gorgeous and super easy Christmas baubles ornaments garland for my Holiday Cocktails & Appetizers party I shared last week. Did you see it up behind our the bar?! So pretty! Originally, I wanted to make a baubles ornament wreath, but those things look a LOT easier in theory, I tell ya! Have you ever tried making one? Man, they are a pain! Not only you always end up with a lot less baubles than you thought you might need, which means endless trips to the shops to buy more...not to mention they take aaaaages to get looking so full and pretty like you see on Pinterest , and let's not even mention the hot glue burns. Sigh...

Pumpkin & Cinnamon Tiramisu Recipe

Pumpkin & Cinnamon Tiramisu Recipe

Tiramisu is one of my all time favorite desserts. I come from an Italian background, so there's no surprise there ;) But because autumn rhymes with pumpkin and cinnamon errything , I decided to add a little twist to my classic recipe. I say classic, but really it's far from it, 'cause for my usual Tiramisu I use cinnamon cookies instead of the traditional ladyfingers. I adore cinnamon just a much as pumpkins. And coffee. So it was a no-brainer, really!

DIY Animal Ear Headbands for Halloween

DIY Animal Ear Headbands for Halloween

Confession time: Despite my love of parties, I never go OTT on costumes for Halloween. And I hate those shop-bought "monstrosities" costumes that you only wear once. But I DO like dressing the part for any party or celebration. So I tend to opt for some funky tee-shirts, crazy tights, makeup or a little black dress ( like in this post ).  And almost every time, I reach our for animal ear headbands to complete the look (the mean girls "I'm a mouse, duh!" phrase comes to mind...). 

DIY Halloween Balloons with Black Electrical Tape

DIY Halloween Balloons with Black Electrical Tape

Okay, so black electrical tape has become one of my fav go-to crafty materials lately. You may have seen the striped boxes I create for my office here ? Well, I was so inspired, that I decided to spook-up my Halloween party balloons using black electrical tape!  They are perfect as party decorations, but also make fun photo booths or even as part of a funky costume.
