Edible Fruit Arrangements

Fruit can be used at a party as a centerpiece as well as an appetizer.  Here are a couple of great ideas for fruit arrangements.


These Melon Balls would be great at a bridal shower or a baby shower.


This Watermelon Flowering Garden is great for a Spring party.


This Strawberry Heart would be great for a Strawberry Shortcake party.


I stumbled upon this site and found this tasty Citrus Splash with Chocolate.

Host an Easter Brunch for Kids has some great ideas on hosting an Easter Brunch for Kids.  While you are making all of your Easter plans, don’t forget the kids and do something exciting for them too.

They have instructions on how to make this pop-up card.  This could also be used as a place card.


I love this Cupcake Cafe.  These would also be great for a Tea Party or a Baby Shower.


Here are some some easy to make Impressions sandwiches.



Make Easter Brunch memorable for the kids too.

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Easter holiday.

Baby Shower Cupcakes

Cupcakes are  a new trend that you see more now at baby showers.  You can make creative cupcakes to go with the theme of your baby shower.  Here are some creative cupcake ideas that I have found.

This Peek-a-boo Baby Cupcake and Baby Shoe Cupcake can be found at Cutest Baby Shower Ideas.


These Safari Cakes would be great at an Animal Adventure Shower or with a  Noah’s Ark theme.

Wilton has some great ideas for cupcakes like the Shake, Rattle and Roll and the Cute and Contented cupcakes.


The most unusual cupcake that I found was the Pickle and Ice Cream Cupcake.  This one might be better to serve just to the expecting mother.

The display of your amazing cupcakes at your shower will be a topic of conversation for your guests!  Hope you enjoy!
