Tootsie Pop Cherry Valentines

Tootsie Pop Cherry ValentinesThank goodness for Valentines Day right? A holiday all about showing love, giving flowers, wearing red and pink, and eating treats? We need more holidays like that. It’s a whole day devoted to love notes! The act of giving valentines is one that I believe should never stop, no matter what age you are. So it’s time to start planning what you’re going to pass out to your friends, family members, co-workers, or whoever you think deserves a little love! We’ve taken a classic candy and turned it into a fruity treat that makes the perfect token of appreciation. These Tootsie Pop Cherry Valentines are super easy to put together and equally delicious. Don’t forget to include a little note: “I love you cherry much!”

Rose Parade Tablescape

DIY Rose Parade tablescape

Are you familiar with the Rose Parade? Every year my family would watch the Rose Parade in all its glory. Never mind the Rose Bowl which happens on the same day. Who needs football when you’ve got a magical festival of flowers? The floats have to be completely covered with flowers or natural materials like leaves, seeds, or bark. In addition to floats, there are marching bands, equestrian units, and a royal court. Guys, this is an American pastime! Naturally, we had to create a Rose Parade tablescape since we did one for the Macy’s Day Parade!

Rose Parade Tablescape

Gather your girlfriends together to make mini floats covered with brightly colored flowers! The floats line the center of an otherwise all-white tablescape in honor of the “White Suitors” aka: all the men and women who volunteer and make the parade possible wear crisp white uniforms. This is a classy occasion, folks! It’d be great as a New Year’s Eve dinner or a brunch on the day of.

FTD was kind enough to provide all the beautiful flowers (like this bouquet!)  to transform our floats with! So start prepping for the new year, because a Rose Parade Tablescape is the best way!

Get the full how-to for the Rose Parade Tablescape!

To each his own! This Countdown to Midnight Backdrop is definitely putting me in the mood for a late night with friends!
