We just couldn’t resist sharing this recipe for Kit Kat Cheesecake bars via Bakers Royal. Remember a color palette doesn’t just have to lend itself to decorating your home. You can make your party look like the pages out of a magazine by weaving in your color palette where possible, not only with tablecloths and flowers but with desserts and drinks. And with Saint Patrick’s Day coming up soon, these Black and Tan Beer Pops from Betty Crocker are a great alternative rather than just serving up everything green.

Dress up your cupcakes with patterned cupcake papers from Viking Importing Company or search unique toppers of all kinds on Etsy for a special theme or interest. (You can even use cupcakes as place card holders.) Individual strawberry shortcakes are another great classic, instead of baking the shortcake in a pan, drop the batter in cupcake tins, then slice each one in half and … Read more
Father’s Day is fast approaching, it’s Sunday, June 16th! We thought we’d put a gift guide together for you in case you are stumped on what to get Dad.
