Cascade Ice Bucket

Prolonging the Summer with a Cascade Ice Giveaway!

A few weeks ago, we threw an Endless Summer surf party for my daughter, Anabelle, to celebrate her 7th birthday. On a 108º Vegas Summer day, there was no question a pool party was in order! Not only was the need to cool off in the water a must, but offering cold, refreshing drinks to our guests was absolutely essential. So, we served Cascade Ice Sparkling Waters! As you may have read in my original post sharing all the fun event details, I made the acquaintance of representatives from … [Read More...]

A Mess-Free Fondant Ice Cream Sandwich Tutorial

There are fewer things better on a hot Summer day than an ice cream sandwich, especially here in Las Vegas where the days are literally scorching! I mean, refreshing ice cream on its own is heaven, but sandwich it between two cookies... seriously the best! I have to say I'm partial to the ones made with fresh baked cookies {chocolate chip cookies ~ yum!}, but my daughter definitely enjoys the traditional ones. Eating these delectable treats can sometimes be super messy, so why not … [Read More...]

S'mores Fondant Cupcake Toppers ~ Lynlee's

Gimme S’more Fondant Tutorial!

Don't you just adore the taste of a messy, gooey s'more?! I have to admit, I'm not a huge fan of eating marshmallows alone, but warm it up, add it to a chocolate and graham cracker sandwich and I am all in! Though traditionally cooked on a stick over a fire in the outdoors, my family and I have been known to simply stick the marshmallow in the microwave to enjoy a s'more {or two!} during our indoor campouts in our living room as well. To celebrate National S'mores Day on August 10th, I was … [Read More...]

Antsy Watermelon Fondant Tutorial

My dad always asks my daughter, "Anabelle, what's better than watermelon?" to which she always replies, "NOTHING"!!! Needless to say, we are all huge fans of this juicy fruit and it is a constant staple in our diet, especially in the summertime. Because ants find refreshing watermelon as irresistible as we do, in most cases, they are something we try hard to avoid at picnic and outdoor get-togethers, but we just couldn't refuse the presence of this sweet little ant! Celebrate National Watermelon … [Read More...]

Anabelle’s Endless Summer Surf Party

I'm super excited to share the details of my daughter's Endless Summer surf party for her 7th make-up/unbirthday! Ever since Anabelle was born, we've been throwing big parties when commemorating her special day. The celebrations, as well as my party planning skills, have evolved and developed throughout the years, from her very first Poodle in Paris party to her 4th Finding Neverland birthday to last year's Vintage Hawaiian Luau. Due to work commitments and all the craziness from the release of … [Read More...]

Las Vegas Casino Party

What Happens in Vegas…

Viva Las Vegas! Last November, my incredible grandmother celebrated her 90th birthday!!! What an amazing milestone! Everyone who meets her cannot believe her age because she looks so young, but also because she can usually be found partying it up at the Vegas casinos! Due to her affinity for gambling, we decided to celebrate with a casino-themed party and dessert table! Since we had planned an entire weekend of fun, including a couple of nights at the Palms Casino Resort, we set up the desserts … [Read More...]

Let Me Take You to a Rio Party!

This past weekend, we celebrated my mother's birthday with a Rio party! A couple of years ago, we commemorated my mom's big day with a Pan Am party, harking back to her days working at the airline. Though last year's vibe of her Namaste Spa was serene and tranquil, we decided to spice it up a bit this year! As you may or may not know, I was born in Brazil and lived there until I was almost 12. Though I'm from São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro is such an iconic city (the second largest in the country) … [Read More...]
