We have a super easy do it yourself today just in time for the 4th of July. We discovered a fun way to add pattern and color to candy!

Separate the paper ribbon so that it is in strips, set stack of candy (in this case we used our favorite, red vines) on top of ribbon and begin rolling paper around candy and seal off with tape, washi tape or stickers.

And presto, you have one fire cracking display cute enough for any 4th of July party!

We came across this adorable red white and baby blue sock monkey party over at the blog, We Are The New Black and had to share this wonderful first birthday party for their son Brady. For more details on each image be sure to visit the blog.

It looks as though the sock monkey is making a come back and we could not be more happy! Love the sock monkey!! He looks especially cute next to  the 8″ red burst blumeboxes. As you can see here blumeboxes are not just for flowers! Simply add decorative pinwheels to the blumeboxes and you have yourself some very creative, colorful and cost effective decorations.

A decent cupcake stand is hard to find, so we could not have been happier to have to have been introduced to this one from Petite Square Cupcake Tree.  Brady’s mom decorated the stand by spraypainting it blue and then gluing on the red and white ribbon (spraypaint and ribbon from Michael’s).

The sock monkey cake topper came from Etsy seller SpiritMama and it could not be any cuter, not to mention fit more perfectly with the cake and cupcakes of which were made by The Cake Lady.

Well done birthday boy!
