Sprinkle Rainbows Everywhere

The New Year is here and with that comes something fun and new for Giggle Hearts . . .

If you already follow me on Instagram - you may have seen what happened yesterday . . . but in case you didn't, it's all about the 3's. Every third post on Instagram will feature either a brand new edition to my FestiveFetti shop on etsy or a download I create just for you, that's available at no cost for your personal use.

The past 3 days, was all about rainbows - likely because they inspired me after my daughter and I saw three in one day over the past weekend - a double rainbow included :) Today, is the start of the next series of 3 . . .

The newest Festive-Fetti™ Confetti bags are now in my shop. I’m ready to ship some colorful cheer your way because any day of the week, month or year can be a reason to celebrate and toss some confetti. These bags of Festive-Fetti™ Confetti are just $4.95 each and you can even customize the wording on the paper insert at no additional charge.

Festive-Fetti™ makes the Perfect Party Favor.

Candy Kabobs + Printable Tags : custom made to match any color palette or theme

Wouldn't you love to send your party guests home with fancy candy on a skewer? At Sweets Indeed that's just what you can do. Marie's Sweet Skewers™ are a Sweets Indeed™ original and you can have them custom made to match any color palette or theme. The signature-sized kabobs are topped with gourmet lollipops that come in over 75 shapes, colors and flavors. There's even Mini Sweet Skewers™ that hold about 3/4 the amount of candy as the regular sized kabobs. These minis are topped with assorted gummi candies. Don't you just love the colors?



Since I'm always thinking of printable ideas - I had to share with you these downloadable candy tags that I created in a few different color choices. These would be super cute printed, cut out with a 2" circle paper punch and tied onto the candy kabob {which come wrapped in cellophane}. You could write the guests name on them, say thank you or anything you wish. The ideas are endless. Download your file here which includes all of the colors shown below.

A Fabulous NYC Rooftop First Birthday

Today's First Birthday Celebration comes to us from Seri and Michelle of  Little Miss Party and features a fabulous event that they styled on their client's New York City rooftop deck. Since the setting was naturally beautiful, they focused most of their attention on providing fabulous food, favors and decor. The party theme color was pink and was used practically everywhere - from the balloons, to the gorgeous florals and coordinating partyware. The menu was full of delicious offerings for all the guests...big and small. Custom labels were used on the beverages and added a sweet personal touch. My favorite DIY item is definitely the personalized bubble favors that were created for the little party guests, SO cute and creative! 

 

How cute are those chocolate chip cookie pops?
