Breakfast at Tiffany’s Bridal Shower Party

We had a great time putting together this Breakfast at Tiffany’s party inspiration photo shoot. Since springtime will be here in a few weeks, we thought it would be perfect to showcase the collection in a outdoor tea party setting. We used the Tiffany blue (of course!) and soft pink as the color palette. Simple touches gave this party a sweet, elegant look.

This party collection is perfect for a classic bridal shower, baby shower, or even wedding. We hope you enjoy it! Our Breakfast at Tiffany’s printable collection is available at our SHOP.

Hot Chocolate on a Stick

Here’s a thing you don’t know about me… I’m always cold! And a good cup of hot chocolate ALWAYS hits the spot. So you can imagine how excited I got when I found Ticket Kitchen. This San Francisco based company that offers handcrafted, delicious and “super cute” Hot Chocolate on a Stick. Their “HCOAS” are currently available  in two different flavors – French Dark Hot Chocolate and Three-Chili Hot Chocolate.

Not only will these be great for a cold winter night at home but also perfect for your next camping trip, dessert table, or as an unforgettable favor. Mmm…

Valentine’s Day Breakfast

I don’t know you but I would loooove to be treated to a delicious breakfast on Valentine’s Day. Okay, let’s be real now… Valentine’s Day is on Monday so let’s not be too picky and settle for a Sunday pre-Valentine’s breakfast!

Either way, print these yummy recipes I found at Kaboose and strategically place them where your significant other can see them, tell the kids about it, or (sigh!) treat yourself to it.

Valentine's Recipe

Valentine Strawberry Shortcakes

Flaky buttermilk biscuits, rich strawberry topping, and cool whipped cream combine beautifully in this classic Valentine’s Day treat. Cutting the biscuits into heart shapes makes a memorable presentation.


* 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

* 2 teaspoons baking powder

* 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

* 1 tablespoon sugar

* 1/2 teaspoon salt

* 1/2 cup shortening, chilled

* 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cut in small pieces

* 1 cup buttermilk

* 1 quart strawberries cut small

* 1/4 cup sugar

* 1 cup heavy cream

* 2 tablespoons sugar

* 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cooking Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Lightly grease 2 cookie sheets.

2. In a large bowl whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt to combine. Cut in the shortening and butter using two knives or a pastry blender until the pieces are about the size of peas. Add buttermilk and stir to blend.

3. Turn out on lightly floured board. Knead about 4 times and pat into a 3/4-inch thick rectangle. Using a 3-inch heart-shaped cutter, cut out biscuits. Cut as many biscuits as possible by reforming scraps into a 3/4-inch thick rectangle.

4. Bake about 20 minutes or until golden and baked through.

5. In a medium bowl, mix strawberries and sugar to combine. Let sit until juice forms.

6. In a large bowl with a beater on medium-high, beat cream with sugar and vanilla until whipped.

7. To serve, slice through biscuit horizontally and place cut sides up on a plate. Top with 1/4 cup berries and juice and 1/3 cup of whipped cream.

Make it Faster

Instead of using a cookie cutter, pat the dough into a rectangle and cut into serving-sized squares with a sharp knife.

Tips & Tricks

For a richer taste, brush the tops of the biscuits with beaten whole egg or heavy cream.

Valentine's Recipe

Berry Mimosa Mocktail

Put a fresh spin on the traditional mimosa — minus the alcohol — with cranberry juice and a fizzy mixer.


* 1/2 cup cranberry juice

* 1 cup raspberry flavored ginger ale

* 1 strawberry, top removed, sliced in half

* Sprig of mint

Cooking Instructions

1. Combine juice and ginger ale in a small pitcher; pour into champagne glasses.

2. Garnish with strawberry slice and mint sprig.


Trade the ginger ale for a raspberry-flavored sparkling water or berry-flavored sparkling lemonade.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Ready In: 5 minutes

Valentine’s Treat

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and seems like the right time to post a bit of inspiration for this special day! We thought it would be cute to turn a regular ham and cheese or PB&J sandwich into a Valentine surprise.

PB&J Sandwich for Valentine's Day

Simply use a heart shape cookie cutter to cut the slices of bread.

Butterfly Mobile

I came across this super cute butterfly mobile by Becky M from All in One Day’s Time. She used one of my latest obsessions the Silhouette machine (I’m dying for one of those!) to create all of the butterfly shapes. I thought this mobile could easily be used as a party decoration, perhaps change the shape to match your theme and voila. I will definitely try this some day…

Check out the entire tutorial HERE.
