Raspberry Rose Ice Cubes

February has arrived and now that the Super Bowl is over, I’m switching my focus from football and the painful loss all of us 12s experienced on Sunday, towards some much lovelier things. Yep! I’m choosing not to dwell on what could have been, or what should have been in the final minute of the game and instead drowning my sorrows in pretty pink roses (kidding) but honestly…flowers are truly the way to my heart, especially when I’m feeling a little down. I just adore the way they brighten my mood and bring a smile. So armed with tons of blooms and feeling motivated by the happiness they bring me, I’ve preserved and transformed the leftovers into pretty little beverage garnishes to share with all of you. These cubes are so gorge and perfect for the upcoming arrival of V-Day in soft tinted pink. They’ll fill your glass with floral and fruity notes and dress up your favorite beverages in an instant for easy entertaining.

DIY Raspberry Rose Ice Cubes

Pink petite roses and fresh raspberries frozen into cubes of distilled water to add a touch of posh to your favorite beverage. I chose to pair these cubes with Rhubarb flavored DRY Soda (that just happens to come in a pretty pink bottle.) Did I mention it comes in a pink bottle? Not only that, but the soda is local to Seattle (fitting) all natural, and complements the fruit and floral notes of the cubes beautifully.

Ingredients/Supply List

1 gallon of Distilled water

6-12 fresh rinsed raspberries

6-8 petite pink/white roses (look for organics free of pesticides) Check Trader Joes, Whole foods, or other local organic stores. You can also use home grown.

1 large block silicone ice cube tray (6 cavities) or a regular sized cube tray will do

Instructions

Boil 3 cups of distilled water and allow it to completely cool (this will give your cubes a crystal clear look)

While water is cooling prep your flowers. Remove the blooms from the stem and soak them in water. Allow to soak for 10-15 minutes to remove any residue.

Pull roses from water and remove some of the petals.

Place a few single petals and raspberries into each ice cube cavity. You can switch up the design of each cube by adding a few white rose petals, or an entire bloom to the cavities.

Pour cooled distilled water over the top of each tray and fill about half way full.

Place in the freezer until frozen solid.

Remove from freezer and pour remaining distilled water over the cubes and continue to freeze until they’ve turned into cubes.

Place one frozen floral cube in each glass

and top with Rhubarb DRY soda (or beverage of your choice).

Here’s how the cubes look once melted. Lovely!

Use these cubes to add a touch of posh to your drinks of choice. I’m envisioning a girl’s day brunch cocktails or romantic Valentine’s beverages with your love. Really any idea above will do.

Hope you’re looking forward to the weekend as much as I am. Thanks as always for reading!

Super Bowl Party Popcorn


It’s officially Friday and we’re now just two days away from the most exciting night in football…not that I’m counting or anything. Do you have big plans for the Super Bowl? Mine are actually pretty low key. I’ll be hosting a small group at my home but I still have plenty of prep work ahead, so my goal is to keep the menu fairly simple. This can sometimes (or all the time) be pretty difficult for me, considering that I’m not really a simple gal, but I’m relying on many of the recipes I created at last year’s Super Bowl celebration, which will definitely make things much easier on me.

Since I’m from the PNW and a serious Seahawks fan, I want to be able to make ahead as much as possible, so I’m able to relax and actually enjoy watching the game come kickoff.  If you can relate and are looking for last minute treat and snack ideas for Sunday, I have you covered with this simple party popcorn recipe.

All you need is a few quick ingredients and M&Ms in shades of your favorite team’s colors. Warning….this will require some color sorting, but it’s totally worth doing to achieve a team themed look! If you have kids at home, sorting is a really fun job for them to take part in.

I cannot forget to mention the DIY miniature footballs. Seriously how adorbs right?! They literally take seconds to make and although tiny, they add so much festive fun to recipe and a taste that’s touchdown worthy!

1/3 organic popcorn kernels

1/4 cup coconut oil

1 tbsp orgnaic smooth almond or peanut butter (I use Trader Joes brand)

1 tsp agave nectar

3/4 pretzel bites (TJ’s pretzel sesame squares were used in this recipe, but any pretzel will do)

3/4 cups mixed nuts

1 medium sized bag of regular chocolate M&Ms sorted (colors blue, green and brown for the Seahawks)

mini paper serving cups

Make popcorn in popcorn maker. While popping melt your coconut oil in the microwave, or on the stove for 30 seconds. Once melted, add in your almond or peanut butter and agave nectar to the oil and stir until completely blended.

Mix together popped popcorn and mixed nuts until fully incorporated.

Pour oil/butter mixture over the top of your cooked popcorn and mixed nuts. Stir well until coated.

Add in pretzels and stir to incorporate.

Set aside for 30 minutes so the popcorn mix has time to set, then add your colored chocolate M&Ms.

While your popcorn is setting, you can make your mini footballs. Instructions below!

Serve your party popcorn in individual containers for your guests.

Grab and enjoy!

DIY Mini Footballs

Mini chocolate footballs made using brown peanut M&Ms and piped white chocolate for the laces.

1 oz white chocolate

sorted brown peanut or almond M&Ms

sheet of parchment paper

1 ziplock bag

Instructions

Place all sorted brown peanut or almond M&Ms on a sheet of parchment paper (M side down).

Place your white chocolate in a heat-proof bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals until melted.

Pour melted white chocolate into a ziplock bag and snip the tip. Make sure that the tip is small enough to create a thin line on each M&M.

Holding your hand steady, pipe one straight line down the center of each peanut M&M.

Complete the look of the football laces by piping 3 crossed lines over the straight center line.

Allow 1 hour to dry.

Once M&M footballs have dried, place one to two in each individual container of party popcorn for a winning finishing touch!

Painted Mini Pumpkin Centerpieces

Black & Gold Mini Pumpkin Vases | Posh Little Designs

Black & Gold Mini Pumpkin Vases | Posh Little Designs

Each year as Halloween approaches I look forward to bringing home mini pumpkins from the market to display around my home. I prefer the white, or what are known as “ghost” pumpkins, since they’re a blank canvas, neutral for decorating and so incredibly chic! Although too much white is never a bad thing in my opinion, when I see a blank canvas, it’s in my nature to elevate it. As such, I’ve given my mini pumpkins (which included a few orange) a fresh coat of paint for an added touch of glam.

Aside from white, when I think of glam and opulence, black and gold come to mind. Both are elegant, and timeless with a major posh factor and look gorgeous when styled for parties, in fashion and for the home. These are the thoughts I had on my mind when I painted the pumpkins.

And in addition to making table centerpieces look posh and parties stylish, the black and gold painted pumpkins easily transform into miniature vases and centerpieces to hold your favorite blooms.

I just happened to have a vase of white roses on hand, so I stuffed each mini pumpkin with one single stem. I just love how they stand out in contrast to the black and gold.

Black & Gold Mini Pumpkin Vases | Posh Little Designs

Aside from paint drying time, these pumpkin vases only take a short period of time to make! Here’s what you’ll need to give them a try:

Black & Gold Mini Pumpkin Vases | Posh Little Designs

Painted Mini Pumpkins Centerpieces

Add a touch of glam to your Fall home decor and floral blooms with this simple and affordable DIY.

Supplies

Mini pumpkins white or orange will do (white will work better for the gold paint, but orange will be fine for black).

Sharp knife.

Black & gold craft paint (gloss preferred). I actually used leftover chalkboard paint that I had and it worked just fine.

2 paint brushes (one for each color of paint).

newspaper or scrap paper to paint on.

small tray for paint.

white roses or flowers of choice.

Black & Gold Mini Pumpkin Vases | Posh Little Designs

Black & Gold Mini Pumpkin Vases | Posh Little Designs

Instructions

Rinse all pumpkins and pat completely dry with a paper towel.

Using a large sharp knife, cut the top off of the pumpkins starting at about 1 inch down (try to make sure the cut is even so the top can fit back on the pumpkin properly).

Using a small spoon, scoop out the interior of the pumpkin and discard.

Rinse out the pumpkin and dry with a paper towel.

Begin painting the exterior of each pumpkin in the color of your choice. Paint everything including the stem and the flat surface of the bottom half of the pumpkin. (You won’t need to paint the bottom half of the top of the pumpkin since it won’t be seen.)

You’ll have to apply about 3 coats of each color of paint, allowing at least 30 minutes to an hour to dry in between, + touch ups. This part takes the longest.

Once the paint completely dry, you can fill each pumpkin with a small amount of water if you plan on using them for miniature vases.

Cut the stem of each rose bloom down to about 1 inch and place the bloom into the mini pumpkin. Depending on the size of your flowers, you may need to use more than one bloom. Allow roses 1-2 days to completely open up.

Red White & Blue Fruit Skewers

This year’s 4th of July celebration is a bit last minute so I’m planing to keep the menu simple. Simple isn’t always an easy task for me because I may have a slight tendency to overdo things…but I’m reminding myself that the simpler I can keep it, the more time I’ll have with my guests and the less time I’ll spend in the kitchen. No brainer!

I really do love food in its natural state so I plan to serve up some fresh fruit from the market as one of our healthy appetizer options. Since we’re repping red white and blue for the 4th of July, I’m sticking with a festive color scheme in America matching hues. No alterations necessary and I can move the fruit directly from packaging to serving dishes in seconds.

Red White & Blueberries | Posh Little Designs

The fruit already looks gorgeous on it’s own, but displaying it in cute little dishes will make it look even more fabulous. You can even cut your fruit into shapes as I did using my star cutter and skewer them for a fun holiday touch. Hmm..I may just have to do this simple thing more often!

Red White & Blueberries

Red White & Blueberries | Posh Little Designs

Ingredients/Supplies

This fruit display is versatile so pick which ones you enjoy the most. I chose jicama because of its white color, but it’s quite starchy and almost potato like. Consider pears, or apples as an alternative.

2 cups raspberries -rinsed

1 half jicama peeled and sliced into 1/2 inch thick rounds

2 cups blueberries -rinsed

fresh lime wedge

Mini star cookie cutter

3 glass dishes for display

Metal skewers or toothpicks

Instructions

Squeeze lime juice over jicama and cut into mini star shapes using a cookie cutter, or cut into even matchstick slices, with a knife.

Red White & Blueberries | Posh Little Designs

Place rinsed and prepped fruit into individual dishes, and display in red white and blue order for your guests to enjoy!

Red White & Blueberries | Posh Little Designs

These can be made in advance and chilled in the fridge. Serve with skewers or attached to toothpicks as seen below for a quick and easy 1 bite appetizer.

Red White & Blueberries | Posh Little Designs

Fourth of July fresh, healthy and delicious.

Do you have fun plans for the holiday? If so, I’d love to hear them! Wishing you all a safe and happy holiday weekend.

Thanks for reading!

Graduation & DIY Chocolate Chalkboards

There’s nothing I love more than giving edible gifts, and last week when my oldest daughter and I came across the DIY chocolate chalkboards found on the Dollhouse Bakeshoppe Blog we knew they would make an adorable thank you’s for her preschool teachers, in preparation for her graduation last Saturday.

Reality most certainly set in during the ceremony. I still remember 2 years ago around this time when we enrolled her into preschool, and I remember the tears I wept when we dropped her off for the first time. The way that she told us she would be fine, and ran off to play before we even walked out the door. Now to see how she’s blossomed and transformed into such a beautiful little being, makes me tear up over and over again.

We surely do have the teachers to thank. They have become a big part of our lives, playing a role in her growth and development over the last few years, with guidance and instruction helping shape her into the girl she is today. Both caring and compassionate, a lover of arts and crafts, a thinker, and great role model to her fellow classmates, and so much more. They most certainly deserve to be honored for all that they do. So in addition to the chocolate strawberries we made for the graduation, we also made these dark chocolate chalkboards for 5 of her teachers, using instruction from the Dollhouse Bakeshoppe Blog’s tutorial.

DIY Chocolate Chalkboards | Posh Little Designs

These little dark chocolate bars really do look like mini chalkboards. Wouldn’t you agree?! The addition of the jimmy sprinkles used as decorative chalk is such a brilliant idea. I die…seriously! And they make such perfect heartfelt gifts, that teachers will truly appreciate. I know my daughter’s teachers did!

Although I used Lindsay’s instruction as a guide, I chose to melt my chocolate into molds for a decorate frame and finish. I did not use the caramels to frame the chocolate however if you do not have mold on hand and would like to use the caramel frame, visit her blog for instruction by following the highlighted link above.

DIY Chocolate Chalkboards | Posh Little Designs

DIY Chocolate Chalkboards

Ingredients/Supplies

Chocolate mold (optional or you can just use the back side of the bar itself to create your message this is probably a faster option) You can find the mold I used in the Posh Etsy Shop.

Four 4 oz bars of quality dark chocolate

1/2 cup powdered sugar

white jimmy sprinkles

toothpick

brand new paint brush washed and dried

parchment paper

ziplock bag

cellophane bags

bakers twine

DIY Chocolate Chalkboards | Posh Little Designs

Instructions

Heat the chocolate in a double boiler or in 30 second intervals in the microwave until fully melted.

Pour melted chocolate into ziplock back and snip the corner.

Pipe melted chocolate into molds and once finished gently tap the mold against a hard surface to evenly distribute.

Place in the fridge until cooled, about 1 hour.

Remove from fridge and flip mold upside down onto a sheet of parchment paper to remove the chocolates.

With a toothpick, begin engraving your message into the molded chocolate. Remove excess chocolate shavings with brush.

Fill the engraved chocolate with powdered sugar using the paint brush or similar to pack it down, so it’s evenly distributed throughout the entire message.

Brush off the remaining powdered sugar which will also give the chocolate the “chalkboard” look.

Towards the bottom of each bar engrave two spaces large enough to hold the “chalk” or white jimmy sprinkles. Gently push them into place.

Repeat these steps for each chocolate bar.

Once all bars are engraved and completed, place them each in their own cellophane bag for packaging, and finish with bakers twine and handmade labels.

I would caution against placing the finished chocolate back in the fridge as the moisture can affect the look and texture of the powdered sugar. Leave them at room temperature, in a cool dry place.

DIY Chocolate Chalkboards | Posh Little DesignsChalkboards are so trendy these days, you could really use them for all sorts of different gifts and favors. Bridal showers, weddings, birthday parties and more!

 And here’s my little beauty, on graduation day! So much joy and many tears as well. When we asked what she wants to be when she grows up, she said a Dr, so she can help people. She also said she will miss all of her friends from school. This girl melts my heart and words cannot express how proud we are of her. This is only the beginning!

Real Parties – Ombre Minnie Mouse

On Mother’s Day weekend we celebrated my baby girl’s 2nd birthday! Ah…I can’t believe she’s officially two now! I’m still amazed at how fast she’s grown. It’s difficult to grasp and most certainly bittersweet, but I’ve loved every moment of watching her blossom and reach new milestones. I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

Her actual birthday fell on Mother’s Day this year (such a special gift), so we planned the Minnie Mouse festivities for the day prior. It was a quaint little party, with tons of pink, and ombre accents, but not too over the top in terms of character details. Definitely more subtle and understated, but just perfect for our sweet mimi.

Ombre Minnie Mouse Birthday Party | Posh Little Designs

Decorations included everything from hand-made tassel garland, made with white tissue paper and minnie inspired letter prints in different shades of pink. A simple DIY pink ombre glittered #2, a banner of bows to capture the bowtique feel, glittered mouse and bow confetti, a dress up station with headbands and jewelry and plenty of balloons.

I made the floral arrangements using roses in 3 shades of pink and white from Trader Joes, carnations also in 3 shades of pink, and all white hydrangea. I finished each arrangement with Minnie prints, which I attached to wood skewers.

Ombre Minnie Mouse Birthday Party | Posh Little Designs

All of our lunch plates were adorned with the most adorable minnie mouse ears, which I was delighted to find via a free printable from Chickabug! Visit Heather’s shop for fabulous prints and paper designs for your upcoming celebrations. Seriously…how cute are these?! Just cut them out, attach with tape and you’ve got ears! I would recommend printing them on a thicker quality paper.

Ombre Minnie Mouse Birthday Party | Posh Little Designs

We kept the menu simple, serving barbecue, teriyaki wings, a fresh quinoa salad, my mom’s famous potato salad and many of my daughter’s favorite things…chicken sausage, olives and fresh fruit and veggies cut into mouse shapes, using a minnie mouse cookie cutter.

The beverage station featured my homemade watermelon lemonade, and sparkling berry lemonade from Trader Joes. Mix-ins included: Perrier, fresh lemons, mint and raspberries.

Ombre Minnie Mouse Birthday Party | Posh Little Designs

For dessert I made gluten-free and dairy-free cupcakes with vegan icing so they were suitable for my daughter who has a dairy and soy intolerance. I actually bought the cake mix (Bobs Redmill) but made one batch of cupcakes and the vegan buttercream homemade, using freeze dried raspberries and strawberries to color and flavor the icing. I topped the cupcakes with royal iced sugar cookie rounds that I cut using a shot glass to mimic the mouse ears, and used a shaped mold to make colored bows out of white chocolate with a little gel food coloring in two different shades to finish each cupcake. The white chocolate bows were the only component that weren’t dairy free.

On the dessert table were the Minnie Mouse cupcakes, as well as colored jelly bellys, 3 shades of sixlets, pink ribbon candy and strawberry popcorn. I also made sugar cookies with royal icing which were decorated with the help of my dear sister and good friend the night before! Thanks so much fabulous ladies!

The birthday girl’s mini cake was made using the same technique as the cupcakes. I baked 1 cake and cut out 4 rounds using a water-glass. Stacked them, and then my hubby iced them with two different colors of vegan buttercream for the ombre effect. I topped the mini cake with homemade bunting made from minnie inspired prints, ribbon and paper straws, which can be found in the Etsy shop!

Ring Pop Party Favors – DIY

One of my best girlfriend’s was in town from New York a few weeks ago and completely unaware of a top-secret bachelorette party myself and the rest of the girls from her wedding party had been planning! We prepared for her final fling over the course of a few weeks and the entire night couldn’t have turned out better! Many personalized details were added to celebrate the Mrs to be, which included the Ring Pop party favors I made for all of the girls that attended. You may remember this sweet candy bling the most from days of your childhood, but they’ve recently become quite trendy for wedding gifts, bridesmaid invitations and party favors.

As you will see below, they easily transform from childhood treat into the perfect party favor or parting gift. Even better, they’re simple to create and affordable too!

DIY Ring Pop Party Favors

Supplies

Ring pops in your choice of color.

Showcase packaging containers which can be found in my Etsy shop.

Ribbon of choice cut into 8 inch pieces.

Small cellophane bags.

8 inch pieces of bakers twine.

labels for the top of each container (optional).

mini paper clips (+ glitter and glue).

paper name tags (these can be handmade in Word or Photoshop, or even store-bought)

Instructions

Remove ring pops from packaging.

Open each showcase container and insert ring pop on an angle until secured.

Seal by placing the lid back on the bottom.

Wrap 8 inch piece of ribbon around the bottom portion of the showcase container where the black lid, meets the acrylic container.

Next, place one label in the top center of each container. I made mine specifically using the verbiage “he put a ring on it” with a few extra embellishments to emulate the bling.

Ring Pop Tutorial | Posh Little Designs

After you’ve placed the ring pop in the container, wrapped in ribbon and labeled, insert each Ring Pop container into 1 small cellophane bag.

Tie the cellophane wrapped candy gift with one piece of bakers twine in your choice of color.

Write or print a name on each name tag, then hole punch (if not already done) and tie to each piece of bakers twine.

Ring Pop Tutorial | Posh Little Designs

Finish with one glittered mini clothespin (optional).

To create the mini glittered clothespins, simply paint the full top side of each clothespin with craft glue, and dredge in colored glitter of your choice. Allow an hour to dry.

The favors for my girlfriend’s celebration were personalized to match the color scheme of her upcoming Summer Wedding. She has chosen shades of navy and grey, so I made sure to incorporate those details into the final packaging.

These certainly added a special touch of posh to our evening and didn’t disappoint! Can’t wait until I have the chance to make them again!

Thanks for reading as always! I have a busy few weeks coming up with my brother’s wedding Easter weekend and family in town, but hoping to squeeze in one more post before then!
