Christmas in August


So it's 85 degrees in late August, and while I should be dreaming up some amazing Halloween or fall designs, I'm procrastinating. By making cookies.  Christmas cookies.  In August.  Makes perfect sense, I know.  My darling mother picked up a set of "A Christmas Story" cookie cutters at the thrift store (which was really a leg lamp (awesome), bunny suit (awesomer), and then a roast turkey, star and house (meh, meh, and meh).  I've been wanting to bust these babies out ever since I received them.  So yes, Virginia, it's way too early, but I don't care.  Check out our Christmas Story themed set of cookies.  Enjoy!

Nacho Cookies


Sometimes I surprise myself and actually come up with an original idea :)  I needed some concession style treats for a baseball-themed bar mitzvah that I was putting together a dessert table for when it hit me: NACHOS.  Cheesy gooey nachos with JALAPENOS!  I couldn't be happier with how these turned out and how flippin' easy they were (always a bonus).  Stay tuned for the bar mitzvah post to follow.  Play ball and enjoy!

Aaar Matey!


It always amazes me.  I get an order for a custom set of cookies and like magic, my blog family of exceptional cookie artists all seem to have gotten word and post about the same theme before I can even begin sketching designs!  

Pirate cookies from the amazing Sugar Belle

It's great and terrible at the same time.  Great because I get to see everyone's take on the subject and terrible because they're so talented it's hard to come up with fresh designs!  Here's my spin on a collection of pirate cookies (half of an order for a set of fraternal twins - here is the companion half).  Enjoy!

Under the Sea Cookies


This was such a fun collection of cookies to work on!  This is the sister set to our pirate collection for a pair of fraternal twins' birthday party.  I modified my original mermaid cookie to give her long flowing locks and a luscious tail.  Pair her up with some starfish, scallop shells and purple sea horses and we had quite an adorable assortment.  Check out the rest of our picks for all the sweet seaside details. Enjoy!

I love this seahorse's haughty look.

Vintage Pony Party


Wow wow wow.  Our Vintage Pony Party for the three year old daughter of my dear friend Ryam, from The Inspired Mama, was this weekend and it was truly a phenomenal affair!  The gorgeous results of this labor of love were due in large part to the Ryam's incredible vision and tons of DIY projects. (I must have asked her to quit her day job three times and run away to partner up with me!)  And the beauty is in all the pretty eclectic details - lace, doilies, ribbons, wildflowers, and found objects galore. 

Our party site was Irvine Railroad Park and their beautiful red and white pavilions with huge grassy areas and gorgeous shady nooks (not to mention the random wandering peacock who strolled through our site to take a gander) made the ideal backdrop for our  sweet soiree.  Please take your time through these photos to soak up all the tiny details.  Enjoy!
