So much to do!!

This is going to be one busy week.  I have two parties this weekend.  Not to go to.......parties here at my house!! My husband scheduled one, I scheduled the other and miscommunication occurred.  Actually, he told me about his and I forgot to put it on the calendar.   At least they are not on the same day!  

Thanks to everyone who gave advice on my beach cupcakes.  I think they will turn out so cute. If so I will take pictures.  If not I'll just chalk it up to another cupcake experience.  So a party on Friday and a party on Sunday and then Father's Day on Sunday.  Yikes!  I have a lot to do. 

I saw these on Martha and I think they will be perfect for the older kids to make. 
I also have a bucket left over from Liam's party.  I thought we could either write something on it or draw pictures on it and then fill with car wash supplies and he can keep it in the garage.  It's a twist on a gift idea I also saw on Martha. 

In more relaxing news, just two weeks till our Outer Banks vacation.  Fun, fun times around here.  Parties, crafts and packing for the beach.  I couldn't love summer more than I do right now.

Grass or Sand..........

I'm working on my "End of School" party next week.  Having a little cupcake dilemma.  I'm doing little fondant flip flops as the cupcake decoration.  Perfect.

Now for the hard part.  Make grass out of icing?  Ice them regular and put brown sugar for sand?  Umbrella or no umbrella?  or I was even thinking of piping the icing putting the flip flops on top and then using sprinkles.

Isn't summer great?  My only dilemma involves flip flops.
