I apologize for the gap in posts this week. I got back from our Ohio trip on Wednesday night and have had a whirlwind of catching up. I'll post some Ohio trip pictures soon--after I weed through the many, many pictures. I'm still don't quite feel rested and settled again, which is why the Friday Favorites is late today. I think you'll find some good ideas, though.
I pulled a few ideas off of Pinterest this week. Are you on Pinterest? If you'd like an invitation to participate, let me know and I'll send you an invite! It is such a wonderful website, and the phone app is great. It completely feeds my creative side, which I love!
Enjoy the ideas this week, and have a fabulous weekend!
Ice Cream before Dinner made cinnamon roll pops for a brunch. What a cute idea! I love when presentation ideas add charm and are easy!
I found these dessert stands by Centsational Girl. She went to Goodwill to get glasses and plates. After adhering them together, she spray painted them. I love this idea. Spray paint is such a great invention. If you need coordinating trays and tiers for a party, this is a cheap way to make your displays look great! A cheap tray would work well too!
This idea was on Pinterest and came from Wilton's. They sell a cookie bowl tin, but really all you need is an upside down muffin tin and some cookie dough. Voila! Cookie bowls for fruit, ice cream or pudding--whatever your heart desires. Yum and fun!
The Party Dress gave us a modern spin on the caprese salad--one of my favorites. How fun would this be to serve as a salad course at a dinner party?
Paddycake and Peekaboo made apple butter and shared the recipe. I was just in Ohio at a little Amish town where they specialize in maple syrup and apple butter. I promised my kids I would find a recipe and make our own apple butter. Voila! Here you go, and it looks delish!
Come Together Kids made smore mix for the go. Genius. I wish I had known about this before the 6 hour plane ride. I now have it filed in the kid recipe index! My boys would, of course, love this as a special treat!
School is starting soon, and Crissy's Craft has a cute starting school idea! I have my oldest starting kindergarten this year, and I have always loved the book The Kissing Hand. I would read it to my students too when I was a teacher.
The last idea is off of Pinterest. It is a braided infinity scarf. I don't speak German, and this is listed on a German Etsy type shop, but I do understand pretty--and this is pretty. I love the color and it looks fairly easy to make! I am thinking nice fabric or even sheets cut into strips, hem and braid some sections. It is hard to think about scarfs in summer, though. You'll thank me in December.
