Last week I shared my excitement with you that Bakerella was coming to the Cake and Cupcake Camp! I was excited to attend her cakepop class, but now instead of attending the class I will be setting up shop! My very first time as a vendor! I am busily working on my display. I have pulled out all my Halloween decor and I am excited to put it all together. It amazes me how much I can find around my house for a beautiful table display. I have also been working on my Halloween Designs. Here is a sneak peak!
I will share photos as the week goes on. If you are going to be at the event please stop by and say hi :)
Oh and YES, I am still hoping to meet Bakerella!!!
I opened my email this morning and discovered that I am going to have the chance to meet Bakerella! Yes, I stood up and did the happy dance. In fact, I am still dancing around so excited! Not only am I going to meet her, but I am going to take a cake pop class from her. Yes, you read that right! Bakerella is coming to Oregon and to the Oregon Coast Cake and Cupcake Camp! Along with the class, getting to meet Bakerella and many more fabulous cake and cupcake designers, I am also going to receive the new book by Bakerella "Cake Pops".
I am just thrilled! This is just in time... just in time to be able to make those cute little owl pops for an owl baby shower I am planning and some fun cake pops for the holidays!
With all good intentions and school fast approaching my two little party planning helpers and I sat out to design a back to school party!
We had most of the work and planning done, when just as we were ready to hand out the invites, my little man came down with the stomach flu. Having been through this before... I knew with a family of four, we could count on someone else coming down with the flu too. I didn't know the magic number of days that it would happen, but I knew it would likely happen! I decided not to hand out the invites, as I didn't want to have to cancel if another member of our brood was to be sick.
I looked at the calendar, and just couldn't come up with another date that would work for our family, or the friends and neighbors we would invite. Sadly, I decided to postpone indefinitely the Bookworm Party.
I snapped a few pictures of what we had all ready for the party.
These little tags can be used is so many ways! As treat toppers, favor tags, to tie around jars as decoration (pictured above), to make napkin rings, to fancy up the ordinary paper cups, as cupcake toppers, etc, the possibilities are endless :)
To make these bookmarks special, I laminated the entire sheet, trimmed them, punched a whole in the top and ran a ribbon through the hole. I had my munchkins string beads on the ribbon to personalize them to their liking!
I intended this to be a craft for the party. I would have the ribbon strung and the kids could then string the beads!
These bookmarks would be fun to hand out to your child's class, or better yet as a healthy alternative for the little tricker treaters that will soon be knocking on the door!
I would love to see pictures of your creations with the BookMarks and Favor Tags!
