Featured Etsy Shop: Peapods Cookies

If you’ve signed up for our Vintage Sesame Street Giveaway you’ll recognize these cookies from Peapods Cookies:

Elmo Birthday Cookies from Peapods Cookies

Kristie is a super talented cookie aficionado from New York.  She makes some of the cutest cookies we’ve seen on Etsy (her icing technique is to die for- she’s such an artist!).  Speaking of New York, Kristie made some fabulous “Big Apple” themed cookies that would be perfect for a New York wedding or birthday party:

I think the little hotdogs are so cute!

We’ve been thinking about how cute an Alice and Wonderland  birthday party would be over here at tumblewee and I think these little teacup cookies would be perfect (the “eat me” and “drink me” – so cute!):

And if you’re having a business event (or some really neat themed social media party), check out these cookies:

I could almost die over these Social Media Cookies - so clever!

Makes me want to design a social media party just for the heck of it . . . and to eat these cookies.

Make sure to check out her other cute designs at her etsy shop Peapods Cookies and maybe buy a couple goodies for your next big event.  Jax tells us that the cookies are not only good looking but good tastings as well (OK so he can’t really talk so he didn’t tell us per se but he did gobble up and elmo for his birthday)!

DIY Easter Decorations

So we’re all prepping for fabulous Easter Sundays and that means having some fabulous Easter decorations.

Here are some of the best DIY from the blog world:

Pastel colored glass

Use the colors of spring to inspire your table settings, or if you’re having a hard time visualizing go to Inspiration Home for ideas!

Pastel tables with tulips

Of course Martha also usually has some great picks .  Did you notice the bowls filled with jellybeans, grapes, and lemon drops?  I like the idea of mixed jelly beans as center pieces too!

Monochromed egg basket center piece with a touch of pussy willow.

For an eye catching center piece put those dyed eggs to good use by making a monochromed egg basket center piece in the color you choose (Digs Digs actually has many ideas).  Or if your going eclectic and colorful mix all the colors together.

Plastic Easter Eggs into toy teacups!

Don’t leave the littles out!  Their table can be so cute and a little “Alice and Wonderland-y” with these cute toy teacups and some large flowers for the back of chairs!

Large paper flowers hung on the backs of chairs

 

Paint sample Easter Egg Garland

If you’re pressed for time to decorate just drop by the hardware store and steal a few paint sample cards to string together this cute Easter Egg garland in your house.

Cupcake wrapper wreath! So clever!

Most of us hardly have time to make an egg wreath at this point but this easy cupcake wrapper wreath is SO cute and SO cheap!

Hope these quickies help anyone whose been lagging on the decoration front!
