Ok, maybe it's not nice to steal, but definitely BORROW this one! How CUTE are these Cupcake Doilie Skirts???? Click here for the original post, photos, and instructions from No Fuss Fabulous. How's this for a fun way to jazz up those Valentine's Day cupcakes or Pretty Princess party cupcakes?

Super Bowl XLIV

We're still waiting to hear which teams are going to face off in the Super Bowl on February 7th, but it's not too early to plan your Super Bowl bash! I'm not going to bore you with the usual ideas of using team colors, pennants, jerseys, etc. to decorate. Instead, I'd like to offer you some fun and flavorful recipe and beverage ideas to spice up the party. No matter which team you root for, your party menu will be a winner! I'm a huge fan of the Food Network, so all recipes presented here I found on

Menu #1: Miami Flavor

Menu #2: Tailgate Sizzle

Menu #3: All-American Classics

I hope these varying menus help make planning your Super Bowl get together easy!

If you use any of these recipes, please leave a comment letting us know how you liked it/them!

I simply need to share with you some gorgeous invitations that I came across on Wiley Valentine's blog. You can see the original post here. I love the unique color palette and beautiful print work. Photos by Wiley Valentine.

This is a fun color scheme for a winter celebration or a different twist for your upcoming Mardi Gras party!
