Sprinkle Me Cupcake Topper

Sprinkle Me Cupcake Topper

Sprinkles make everything better. Place two treats side by side, one with sprinkles and the other without, and chances are you’ll take the sprinkled one! It’s just so much more appealing than a plain jane treat. They act like edible confetti; Adding just the right amount of sugar, color, and whimsy. Just what you want for a Valentine’s Day treat! With that sentiment in mind, we created the Sprinkle Me Cupcake Topper so everyone can enjoy the satisfaction that comes from pouring sprinkles all over your cupcake! Taking a nod from Alice and Wonderland, we made a “sprinkle me” flag to attach to the toothpick, giving the recipient the OK to snip the heart and pour those glorious little sprinkles all over! No need for restraint! Perfect for children and the child within us all, make the Sprinkle Me Cupcake Topper for all your Valentines this year!

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!

5 mama and baby costumes

Russian nesting doll mommy and baby costume Artist and palette mommy and baby costumeHalloween is fast approaching and there are few holidays I like more! Spooky and creepy may not seem like the name of the game here at Lars, but we love to go all out! What’s more fun than dressing up?! You’ve probably heard that I’m pregnant (yeah, that’s the bump under my dresses, folks), 24 weeks to be exact, so naturally, we have babies on the brain here! We’ve teamed up with Solly Baby this Halloween season to create 5 amazing costumes for moms and their little ones along with their daily giveaways on Instagram! Each costume has a component for the mom and then a way to dress up the Solly wrap in a coordinating costume for their baby. We are so thrilled with how they all turned out! And even if you don’t have a babe to tote around on Halloween, these costumes would still be amazing! I’m having a hard time choosing, but I think I’m going to go with the Russian doll costume myself! But who knows! They’re all so good!Mushroom and garden gnome baby and mommy costume Chiquita and banana mommy and baby costumeStork and package mommy and baby costume

Check out all the looks and start planning your costume! I’d love to know which one is your favorite?

“The Birds” Cake Topper

"The Birds" Cake TopperIt’s mid-September already which means we’re knee-deep in Halloween crafts and costumes! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays because it’s a chance to embrace all things spooky and moody and even a little bit creepy, which I love. This may be a bit surprising to many of you, but it’s not always rainbows and flowers over here! So to kick off our Halloween posts this year we have “The Birds” cake topper, inspired, of course, by Alfred Hitchcock’s famous thriller. If you haven’t seen it, it’s a great “scary movie.” It is more suspenseful than anything and appropriate for all tolerance levels (I’m a bit of a wimp). Fun Fact: It was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry of the United States Library of Congress in 2016. So yes, it’s worth a watch!

Lucky for you, these birds won’t attack you when you go in to slice the cake. However, they do make a stunning centerpiece for a Halloween party! A really simple DIY, made even easier if you have a die-cut machine. We chose to pair our birds with a red velvet cake frosted with black icing to up the creepy factor a bit. They’d also make great cupcake toppers for a party if you nestled two or three birds on top. So bookmark this for your next spooky soiree and let “The Birds” cake topper take flight!
