Decorative holiday paper
Triangle template (create your own size)
We created the triangle template on the computer and decided we wanted the size to be 3½ x 4½. (You can use whatever size you want) Using the template cut out the triangles on the decorative paper. Once you have the desired amount of triangles cut out attached them to your ribbon using the brads. They are sharp enough that they will pierce the paper and ribbon, so there is no need to punch or cut a hole!
Voila....you have a festive fall bunting without gluing or sewing!!
Have a happy weekend!
To check out the "how to" go here!
small Styrofoam balls
4" square of tulle
4" square of lace
thin black ribbon
gems for eyes and mouth
(glue gun and scissors)
Just take your little Styrofoam ball and stick one of your lollipop sticks in it. If you need to add a little dab of glue to secure it you can.
Place your lace square over your tulle square and lay it over top of the Styrofoam ball, tie with your black ribbon. Then you can trim around the lace and tulle to get it to the length desired.
Next just hot glue two small gems for eyes and a larger one for a mouth and your little ghost is complete! How easy is that!?!
Chocolate chip or sugar cookies
Sprinkles (color of your choice)

We thought it would be really fun to have a donut tasting bar. We set out plain and flavored donut holes from a local bakery on a long white plate. On each side of the donuts we set up jars with homemade caramel and hot fudge sauces and apothecary jars with chocolate chips and toasted coconut. We created a little “donut bar” sign to set on the table as well. We also set up a three-tiered pedestal with graham crackers, pretzels, marshmallows and strawberries so that people could use the sauces as fondu if they wanted to.
We also made mini cupcakes with pink buttercream and a mini donut on top! At the ends of the table we set up “donut” shaped cookies that were pink with white sprinkles, we placed them next to pink bags that we glued doilies onto, so that everyone could take one home...(or eat it there if they wanted.) As another take home gift we made mini jars filled with caramel and hot fudge sauces with one of our “sprinkled donut” tags that read, “thank you for sprinkling Katie and Siena with much love”. We also created a “Sprinkled with Love” letter garland to hang across the front of the table.
We made fabric covered embroidery hoops in the color scheme of Katie’s nursery to create a backdrop for the table. (We let her take them home after the shower so she could hang them in the nursery) We also used some of the fabric as a runner on the table to offset the white table cloth and used the rest of the fabric to cover the mini sauce jars that everyone took home. We used lace and pink ribbon to tie around mason jars with pink and white polka dot straws filled with pink lemonade for the kids. We also got disposable coffee cups and tied an elastic ruffle ribbon around them and put a donut circle tag on them for the adults to have their coffee out of.
We served really simple plates of fresh vegetables and assorted cheeses, crackers and candied nuts.
We made Katie a corsage to wear out of paper flowers so that she could save it in her baby book!
Katie’s sister, Becky was recently married and Katie created the most gorgeous ruffle garland backdrop for a photo booth at her wedding. So Becky brought the gorgeous backdrop with her and a chalkboard. We all took turns writing a note to the baby on the chalkboard and Becky took photos of us so that Katie could save the photos for her baby book! It was such a fun idea and great way to remember that special day!
