Bakerella

I had the pleasure of meeting Angie Dudley (otherwise known as Bakerella) today at a local book signing for her brand new book, Cake Pops.  I’ve been a fan of her blog for awhile now, so it was great fun to actually meet her in person.  If you haven’t seen her book – check it out!  It’s darling, and is full of quick and easy tips on how to make your cake pops turn out as well as hers!  It would also make the perfect Christmas present for the baker in your family!

The Party Dress Welcomes Our New Advertisers!

I like to interrupt our party inspiration once in awhile to welcome our new advertisers!  We are fortunate to have a collection of amazing paper companies, gift shops and home stores that we call part of The Party Dress family.  Today, we welcome four new members….

First up, Tea Collection.  Known for their charming children’s clothing, Tea Collection has been a favorite of mine for quite some time!  Beautiful patterns, darling clothes for baby, girls and boys – Tea Collection is the perfect go-to when you need the perfect gift!

Next up is Munchkin Designs!  This on-line shop carries everything from darling invitations, birth announcements and party favors to custom gifts like jewelry, picture frames and teacher gifts.  Munchkin Designs has something for every occasion!

Our next new advertiser is Curly Cue Wall Decals.  I have been a fan of their darling collection of wall decals for awhile now….perfect for dressing up your child’s room, or to use as a simple, yet exciting backdrop for your next dessert table!

Last but not least, Waxing Poetic.  A stunning collection of unique jewelry and home accents.  Tiny details to celebrate the huge occasions in life.  A letter, a word, a symbol for a name, a place, a life. These charms and pendants are lovely and brave and lasting.  And they make the perfect gift!

4th of July Cupcake Toppers

One of my readers sent me the link to this party…..a playgroup 4th of July party where the hostess used my free 4th of July printables to make the cupcake toppers.  They look fabulous, don’t you think?!  Have you downloaded yours yet?

Fourth of July: Free Printables!

July is one of my favorite months of the year!  It is {normally} perfect, summer weather in Chicago, the fourth of July, and my birthday!  So in celebration of this fabulous month, I decided a free printable was in order!  Here are two free printables for your fourth of July celebration: cupcake toppers and food tent cards.  *See below for instructions*

.

Instructions: click on the images above to download.  For the cupcake toppers, you will need to cut them into strips, and then use a 2″ circle hole punch to cut them out, and attach them to white lollipop sticks with hot glue or tape.  Simply cut out the food tent cards and write your food name (or you could use them as placecards on your table!) in the star with white or silver pen, and fold in half.

Enjoy!  I hope everyone has a festive fourth of July!
