Want to let some know you're WILD about them?! 
My animal print cupcake toppers and party decorations will help you do it! 
More delicious photos and Valentine's party tips below....


   My FREE cupcake toppers can be trimmed into squares or punched out with a 2" circle punch. Simply attach a toothpick or lollipop stick to the back with a small piece of tape and stick in to your sweet treat of choice! You can also tie them on to goodie bags, glue to plain party hats or use them as napkin rings. (To make a napkin ring tape a 6-8" ribbon to the back of the toppers and tie it around a rolled napkin.)




These larger 4.5" party circles can be cut out with a circle cutter or just carefully trimmed out with scissors. Use them to add a special touch to a basic flower arrangement or string several together in a pattern to make a garland to hang at your party!  
Enjoy! XOXO Emily

  These sparkly pink zebra striped cookies are so cute and super easy to make! I first spotted the on the A to Zebra Celebrations Facebook page and then again on the blog Life Is Sweets. I knew they'd be delicious *hello, peanut butter & chocolate!* but I didn't want to make them from scratch so I put my own twist on the recipe......


I used Krusteaz Peanut Cookie Mix! Step 1 on the box says to mix together the wet ingredients (1 egg, 1 tablespoon of water, 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil) this is the stage where I whisked in the food coloring. I used about 30 drops of neon pink liquid food coloring to achieve this color! 

Then I added in the packaged mix and mixed it together with a wood spoon to form a dough. I rolled the dough into 2 inch balls, dredged them in pink sanding sugar (this makes them extra pink and oh, so glamorous!) and baked at 375˚ for 10 minutes.

Finally, I pressed a Hershey's Hug in to the center of each cookie as soon as they came out of the oven and allowed them to cool completely before taking them off of the baking sheet. 
Don't try to move the cookies on to cooling racks. The chocolate on the top sinks through the bottom and it looks like a mess. Trust me on this one.  :)


  These cookies look FABULOUS and taste divine! Make them for your next party and be ready for the compliments! 
XOXO Emily

  When it comes to the girl's birthday parties I try to let their interests guide me. But when Ella told me she wanted a bear party I wasn't sure what to think! Did she mean polar bears, teddy bears, grizzly bears or *gasp* live bears?! After some conversation we decided to make a magical pink forest full of friendly bears that would come out to celebrate her birthday! (Yes, she's VERY imaginative!) She now fancies herself the Teddy Bear Princess!

  To make a fantasy forest fit for a four-year-old princess I decorated all the tables with pink metallic Christmas trees, pink table cloths and glittery faux snow. The children donned bear ears when they arrived, then got to stuff their very own bears. Our party guests even got a taste of real bear life when they "foraged" for prizes! (The prizes were silver jingle bell necklaces.)

  I want to give an extra big bear hug to all our friends and family who made Ella's birthday "beary" sweet! Thank you for being a part of our girl's special day! :)
XO Emily

  
My favorite moment...this photo was taken right before we sang "Happy Birthday". She was SO excited! Pure birthday bliss! The hat she's wearing was custom made for her by Lissy from Shop Lissy.
It was a surprise and she loved it!



A cookie platter like this one is easy to put together and really makes a dessert table look special. 
Can you spot the bears hiding among the cookies? 

My "Bear Mix" was a hit with the kids! 
It's Teddy Grahams, mini marshmallows and chocolate chips. Yum!


These fondant teddy bear toppers were scrumptious and looked so cute on my homemade cupcakes!
They were expertly made by Lady Cupcake's Corner.







A magical visit from Sleeping Beauty! Ella adored her!
