Harry Potter Party Ideas & Inspiration

In honor of my sister and nephew coming to town...I have to do a Harry Potter post (she is a MAJOR fan!).  I have done a few before...check them out here (link)

Set up some fancy drinks (all that would be served at Hogwarts!) on a travel trunk! Source








Roche with velum wings (or even feathers) make perfect and delicious Snitches! Source and tutorial















A little involved but you can't have a Harry Potter party without wands! Sticks, glue and some time will make these unforgettable favors! Source and tutorial






I always love to see an activity for the kids... let everyone adopt and decorate an owl! Source

Party dessert ideas!

Feels SOO good to be back! I got some really good news today, had lunch with a new friend and really enjoyed this weather! ...so let's celebrate by kicking this party back on with some great summer party dessert ideas!

Who doesn't think of banana splits when you think of summer?! Wouldn't this fun presentation look great on top of a scope of ice cream?!  Source and tutorial  (buy sticks here - link)















How about serving these beautiful bites?!  Meringue "bowls" with an orange or lemon curd (note: I can eat the curd by itself, you don't even need to make me anything to hold it lol!) Source














Who can say no to anything related to s'mores?!  These strawberry "s'mores" would not only be a fan favorite, but they are almost too beautiful to eat! Source and tutorial















Have you ever seen these pineapple flowers? I always swear I am going to make them and always forget about them! Definitely going on my to-do list this summer! Source and tutorial

Party is back on!!!


Hey Frosted Family!!! I know it’s been FOREVER! I had to take a step away for a while to handle some overdue “tasks”, as well as, a lot of you know my "real" job is a VP at a large bank, which has been extra busy the past few months. Things are much more together for me now and I can't wait to get back to dreaming about parties with all of you! As of tomorrow, I will be bringing Party Frosting back to the party inspiration place you all know and love! ;o)

So for those that have been loyal followers for a long time (thank you!), I want to bring you up to speed…

My little guy is ONE!! ..can you believe it? my mostest adorablest handsomest!



I have been redoing stuff at the house and working on the yard (little sneak peek) – so much fun!




If all that wasn't enough to occupy me...I have been getting into yoga (sorry no yoga pic available lol) and in the best shape of my life so far! and I have been spending a lot of time thinking about my next steps in education. I already have my Master’s, but researching/considering a Ph.D. – Dr. Kim! ...whew! what an awesome, busy year this is going to be!



...so what have you all been up to!? I can't wait to hear!

Spring/Easter Ideas and Inspiration: Carrots

Though it doesn't feel like Spring yet here, I am getting the itch for Spring cleaning! I have spent all week between rearranging rooms and being sick :( boo! It's hard to believe that Christmas wasn't last week! So I guess we better start thinking about Spring and Easter (if you celebrate)!

Here are some carrot ideas/inspiration to get your creative juices flowing!

Turn wooden prop eggs (or even hard boiled eggs!) into "carrots" using some felt! These would be adorable in some cookie "dirt"! Source and tutorial  (buy wooden eggs here - link)

Happy World Frog Day! Frog party ideas and inspiration

There certainly a holiday for everything! Today's observance of Frog Day hits home here, though. With Spring here, we get a ton of peeper frogs around our pond/woods. These little guys put up such a racket for the Spring mating season! They say you can hear their peeps a mile away...for us, we have to shut the windows sometimes to hear the tv! Hope you are having a great 1st day of Spring!


Break out the sherbert and serve up this fun little guy today! Source and tutorial






Have some fun and make these frog party blowers! Source and tutorial








Make some chocolate frogs! Use craft paper to cut out lily pads! Source (buy mold here - link)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! - Last min ideas!

We woke to A LOT of snow for our St. Patty's Day - boo! Come on Spring already!

If you are looking for some last minute ideas to add a little green in your day... hopefully these ideas will inspire!
Run out and grab a few buckets (craft store or dollar store), some gold spray paint if you can't find gold buckets.  Add coloring pages, rainbow of crayons and you have a great treat for when the kids get home! (if you aren't stuck in the snow like us heehee) Source
