How to make Mini Fruit Cones

Anyone who knows me, knows I cannot cook. However, I do get creative food ideas every once in a while, so they need to come out! This one I am particularly happy with. I was in charge of bringing the fruit to a  4th of July party, so I needed to think of a more creative way to present it than just a bowl. And DING! a light goes off- mini fruit cones ! I worked out the idea in my head, then made it happen. Here’s the tutorial for the perfect party snack Mini Fruit Cones

Mini Fruit Cones

 

Supplies needed


Joy Mini Cups; Mini Ice Cream Cones for Kids, 42 Count (1 Box (42 cones))

Norpro 5135 Double Melon Baller

OXO Good Grips Melon Baller

Good Old Values Bamboo Toothpicks, Pack of 1000

 

Step 1

First, cut all the fruit you want – I went all melon because then it looks like ice cream, but you can use any fruits. Clean them, cut them into workable sizes, and start BALLING ! We kept all the sizes in separate bowls so it made assembling easier.

Step 2

And you will have lots of fruit leftover that looks like rotary dial phones! (we cut up that fruit and served it in a large bowl and it was yummy)

Step 3

Here is the dish of fruit kabobs we assembled. We mixed up what fruits were on the top and bottom, too. In the bottom of each cone, though is a cherry de-stemmed.

Most Important Tip! The kabob assembly can be done the night before, but wait to place the kabob in the cone until the day they will be served because the cone will get soft after 3 hours.

Breakfast at Tiffanys Themed Bachelorette Party DIY

Tiffanys Themed Bachelorette Party

Hello everyone! If you have been wondering why I have been pretty silent these past few weeks is because I have been in my studio preparing to throw my sister’s Breakfast at Tiffanys themed bachelorette party . I have been planning this party for 3 months which game me a good amount of time to devote to all the DIY touches . We had about 15 ladies that came and we all had so much fun! I can’t share all the details since it was a BACHELORETTE party, but it’s safe to say we all had a rowdy time 😉   We stayed at the Marriott  suite here in Ypsilanti and  had a car service drive us to The Wurst Bar for a very special Drag Queen Bingo that I arranged. Then we headed back to the suite for party games, dessert, drinks & more entertainment.  The Tiffany’s party theme was so much fun to add fun touches to.

 

Here are the pictures I can share:

I assembled each of those little Tiffany blue favor boxes, wrapped ribbon and tied them. Inside were rings from Wholesale Fashion Square  that everyone wore . A party favor that everyone can wear and enjoy after the party is really important . The 4 Tiffany blue champagne flutes filled with white Jordan Almonds.

I added edible luster powder & pearls to the cupcakes and desserts.  I also added those lovely diamonds to every table surface . The cupcake toppers I made with my handy circle cutters and printed some icons I made in Photoshop off the computer, glued them together with a blue toothpick in between them and viola!

Tiffanys blue alcoholic drink mix – yummy! I added my turquoise necklace to the top to add more flair to the drink dispenser. The martini drink glasses really were a big hit. I added a little tiffany’s blue ribbon to them.

Here’s what I bought for the Tiffany’s Blue Bachelorette Party theme:

Henna Party for Girls

Today I had a henna party at the salon here in Ypsilanti, MI . This was a really fun group  – a family that is hosting their own henna party with one of our henna artists. They came into the salon to have their henna designs done before the party they are having. Each of the girls had picked out a henna design and I repeated a similar design on their hands and feet. Here are the pictures :
