Candy Corn

Candy corn is a big weakness of mine.  I try really hard NOT to buy a bag until October 1st, because once I buy one bag it doesn't stop until November 1st.  Well, I broke down and bought a bag this week and boy are they tasty.  I couldn't help it, there are so many cute candy corn ideas that I needed a bag for...inspiration!  Here are some of my favorite candy corn ideas I have come across.  I love these candy corn treat bags.

I love any macaron, especially candy corn ones!

Candy Corn Krispies

Candy Corn Waffles, a great way to start off a day!

These candy corn vases are fun.

Okay, even if I tried to make these they would not look like this...yummy!

This garland is fun, although it wouldn't last as a decoration in my house.  I would just eat it!

Candy corn is a fun treat and a great way to add a little color to decor.  What fun treats have you made that have been inspired by candy corn?  Have you made any fun decorations that are candy corn themed?  Do share, I love new ideas.

Baseball Party Recap

Well, I am finally getting around to a recap of our son's baseball party.  I wish I would have had someone just in charge of pictures, because I was so busy enjoying the time with my son that I did not get as many pictures of things as I would have liked.  It was also very windy that day, so some of the "planned" decor was nixed.  Here are a few highlights:
Overall it was a huge success.  For the food we served:
  • hot dogs
  • chips (snack-sized bags)
  • watermelon
  • potato salad
  • red licorice
  • peanuts
  • Cracker Jacks
The food was so easy!  I really enjoyed having the pre-bagged chips and Cracker Jacks.  It made it easy serving 15 kids and 18 adults!

Most of the party was just free play, lots of t-ball was played. We did have a parachute and baseball beach balls, which was a lot of fun.
The kids are at an age where it is fun to just let them play and the end of the party, most all of the kids were in the pool (with the baseball beach balls of course).

We had one happy and tired birthday boy.  He tells me that each birthday he wants a different sports party, ha ha!  

My big 4 year old All-Star!

Baseball Party Preview

Wow, it has been a while.  The start of the school year is always so busy.  To top it off, soon after schools starts it is time for my son's birthday (along with our anniversary and my husband's birthday), all three days in a row!  Crazy, but fun.  Well, I still need to edit photos, but I thought I would share a photo of the baseball cake pops.  They looked much better when I first made them, but of course the two days leading up to the party it was 105 degrees here and they kind of melted a bit just sitting in the warm kitchen...ugh!  Oh well, the kids loved them.

I will try to get more photos uploaded this week, along with add the baseball collection to my etsy shop.
