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.

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.

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!

Check back again soon!

DIY: Glitter Clothespins – holiday edition

Im sure many of you know that I love glitter, but just to reiterate how much I love sparkle and shimmer I’m revisiting one of my favorite posts of the year. And this time I’m adding a festive color scheme to get you in the holiday crafting spirit.

Glitter Clothespins - Holiday

Here’s what you’ll need

Supplies

Clothespins

Scotch tape

Glitter glue (easier and quicker than the double stick tape used in the original post)

Red, silver and gold glitter

Plain sheet of paper

Glitter Clothespins Holiday Edition

Instructions

Add one piece of scotch tape to the very top of the clothespin, leaving enough hanging off the edge to pull later (this is for the portion that you will leave un-glittered, as seen above.)

Apply a thin, but even layer of craft glue to the untaped portion of the clothespin.

Place the clothespin on a piece of scrap paper (glue side up) and pour glitter over top, covering completely.

Once applied allow to dry for 1 hour, then shake off the excess.

Repeat these steps to make additional sparkly pins.

Use the sheet of paper to pour any leftover glitter back into the original containers.

Glitter Clothespins - Holiday

A simple, versatile and glamorous holiday craft.

Dress up your gift tags or use them to display Christmas Cards, holiday photos, garland or stockings in a posh and glitter way.

Real Parties: Vintage Glam Baby Shower – Yellow & Gray

Our newest addition to the family will arrive sometime at the end of this month, or beginning of next. We celebrated the anticipation of her arrival a few weeks back at my vintage-glam themed baby shower brunch, which couldn’t have turned out better! I have my mom, sister and a few good friends to thank for their assistance in pulling together all the little details leading up to the event, the day was simply perfect.

 In one of my previous posts Sunshine Yellow and Gray, I mentioned that I would be using that color scheme, along with some vintage and glam details, to pull together my concept for the celebration. Here’s a look back at my special day and all the details that made it so posh.

Brunch has forever been one of my all time favorite meals, so of course I had to incorporate that into the day when planning the menu. I am a big fan of little bites and appetizer portions so that’s how everything was prepared, in mini sizes. The delicious homemade menu consisted of the following; french toast rounds with maple syrup, a yogurt parfait station complete with fresh fruit, golden raisins, coconut, granola, white chocolate chips and pecans. We also served turkey sausage links, turkey bacon skewers, fresh fruit skewers made up of cantoulope, mango and pineapple and accompanied by a heavenly orange dream dip made by my Mother In-law. Lastly we ate mini frittatas, assorted cheese, fresh bagels and light cream cheese, donut holes and roasted potato cups.

To go along with the menu we served virgin mimosas using fresh mango orange juice and san pellegrino. We also prepared homemade virgin caesars, and a homemade cucumber lemonade. So fresh and perfect for a spring time soiree.

The sweet menu consisted of small bites as well, all of which were homemade and tied in perfectly with the color scheme. The dessert table included homemade lemon poppyseed muffin pops, skinny mango cheesecake bites, onesie lemon sugar cookies, mini cinnamon rolls, gray and white M&Ms, mango pineapple and lemon gummy bears, yogurt dipped raisins and almonds, and banana and vanilla saltwater tafffy. Each guest was given a favor bag to fill up with sweets of their choice as a little token of our appreciation.

The onesie sugar cookies were the perfect touch. I incorporated fresh lemon juice into the glaze so you could taste citrus in every bite. They were also hand designed by myself with the assistance of my sister and good friend using sugar pearls in our yellow and gray color scheme.

I found the recipe for the lemon poppyseed muffins in a cookbook and just cooked them in mini muffin pans. I inserted sticks into them the same way you would if making cake pops.

The recipe for the mini cinnamon rolls came from this fabulous blog: Iowa Girl Eats. I chose to use organic crescent dough from Trader Joes, just a personal preference. They were a big hit!

The decor and dishes used in the display tables and throughout the shower were a combination of vintage and modern. I added sparkle by adorning some decorative pieces with crystals, which I found antiquing. I borrowed the rest of the pieces from family and friends. The fabric for the tables was purchased from a local fabric store, and I found the birdcages at Michaels. Printed paper treat bags were purchased online and I found the damask plates and napkins at a local party store.

For the flower arrangements, I used milk glass, vintage decanters, vintage wine glasses, mason jars and teacups. The doily banners was hand designed by simply threading twine through doilies, and the adorable baby clothesline was hand designed by my sister using twine and the same glitter clothespins from my previous post Glamorous Glitter Clothespins.

To create the centerpiece on the left I used inexpensive flowers; carnations snap dragons daisies and spider mums and put them in a vintage decanter and mason jar. I used a vintage gold mirror, twine and a white porcelain bird to finish off the look. I used the same flowers for the centerpiece on the right and placed them in an old china teapot. I hung some crystals from the spout for the touch of glam. These same details were displayed all throughout the shower.

Here’s another look at some of the florals and table decor.

And here are some additional views of the decor from the celebration. The letter ‘M’ is the initial of our baby girl’s first name. My husband distressed it and painted it for me and we hung from the front door for a personal touch. All of the decorative pieces here will be incorporated into the nursery, which I will be revealing over the next few weeks once it’s finally finished!

To tie in our colors I custom designed all prints including invites and labels in a yellow damask with gray accents.

The fun games from the shower consisted of Guess Mommy’s Tummy size, Attributes, Never say baby Clothespins, Guess how many diapers, and Finish the Nursery Rhymes. We used the glitter clothespins I blogged about a few weeks back for “Never say baby.” Prize bags were hand designed. Check back next week for my easy and inexpensive DIY tutorial on these.

Here are some more snapshots from the celebration.

and more with my favorite people…

Thank you to all of you who helped make our baby shower celebration extra special and nothing short of posh.

Glamorous Glitter Clothespins ~ DIY

What’s the first thought that comes to your mind when you think of clothespins? For me it’s laundry or a clothesline, yet after gaining some inspiration on Pinterest, I found some alternative uses much more exciting than laundry. Just add a little glitter and viola! You now have a glamorous version perfect for weddings, bridal or baby shower games, favors, gifts and celebration decor.

Today I made some for my upcoming vintage-glam baby shower using gold and white glitter. They turned out adorable and all you need are the following 3 supplies to make your own:

1. Glitter in colors of your choice.

2. Double stick tape.

3. Wood clothespins.

A pair of Scissors and scrap paper.

Instructions~

Apply a piece of double-stick tape to one side of the clothespin.

Using a pair of sharp scissors, trim the excess tape from the pin.

Place the clothespin on a piece of scrap paper (sticky side up) and pour glitter over top, covering completely.

Once applied. Press glitter down with fingers and shake off any excess.

Repeat these simple steps to make additional clothespins.

Note ~ I prefer to use Martha Stewart crafts, but you could use any supplies of your choice and I’m sure they’d turn out just as great!
