Tooth Fairy Cupcake Topper

Sweet Tooth Fairy Fondant Tutorial

My daughter, Anabelle, lost her first tooth a couple of years ago when she was five and so began our relationship with the magical Tooth Fairy! There are a variety of traditions that families follow for their tooth transactions and it's worth thinking about early on so that items can be made/ordered that will make the Tooth Fairy's first visit a smooth one. Our little fairy decided that she would leave a little tooth pillow {that she just might have commissioned from Hannalah Designs' … [Read More...]

Head Back to School as the Teacher’s Pet!

Have your kiddos headed back to school yet? My daughter starts school on Monday and we just attended her school function where she found out who her new teacher will be and who's in her class! It's always a nerve-wracking time in a kid's life... wondering what the teacher is going to be like and if his/her friends will be in the same class. Luckily, she was placed with the teacher she had been wanting AND she'll be together with her BFF from last year. Phew!!! I can hardly believe that … [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...]

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...]
