Ok chicks…need a quick, easy and delicious recipe for your next shindig?  Well, this one is straight from my mama’s kitchen and happens to taste just like the awesome chicken salad you can buy at Costco.  We just served it at Shannon’s baby shower 2 weeks ago and it was a HIT!!

No worries…baby shower photos coming soon, but in the meantime…here is FREE recipe download to hold you over (:

hmmm…maybe we should call it “Fresh Chick Chicken Salad?”  Enjoy!!  x0x0~rebecca

So with Easter just around the corner it was time to set up a little playdate photoshoot.  We wanted to set up a kid-sized, budget-friendly dessert table perfect to get a “jump” start into spring!  The locale?  My backyard, the budget?  Minimal…so, I picked this location because of the natural, casual setting.  I loved how the lemons were starting to come in on the tree  so I thought it would be the perfect backdrop for a fun playdate setting.  Now, when planning for a small playdate…you don’t need much…we went with cupcakes & candy!!!  YUM!!!  What more do you need??  This look was achieved with things I already had that I pulled from my holiday fireplace decor, some newly designed printables, fabric scraps (you may recognize the aqua and lime damask fabric from Blake’s Winter Candyland), a fabulous coordinating banner and ribbon garland from Nancy of A to Zebra Celebrations, candy and some cupcakes from a local bakery.  Underneath the layered fabrics were tables from my playroom…just the right height for the kiddos to grab a treat!!

I thought mixing the fabric patterns kept thing a little less serious and set the tone for a playful table set-up.  Together, we styled this simple, yet oh-so-cute table that that is sure to get things-a-hoppin’

Once things were set up, Nancy dressed her beautiful girlies up in ah-dorable t-shirts by Whimsy Tots Boutique, gorgeous bracelets from 3 Little Birds Boutique, and darling hairbows by Fairy Dust Bows.

Also among the decor was a fun & festive sign from Our Hobby To Your Home.  For a cute little favor, small jars were filled with peanut m&m’s, then I embellished the jars with printables attached with coordinating twine from The Twinery.

Here is a pic from my fireplace before snagging stuff for the photoshoot (;  Look familiar??  I got all of this stuff from Target!!  Oh, how I love that place!!  The decorative porcelain jars are from Homegoods.

Here is a close ups on some of the awseome products from some amazing vendors

So, there it is…a fun, easy and budget friendly playdate!  Happy Spring!!

Here are all of the sweet chicks that were involved:

Happy Valentine’s Day!!  It is good to be back…I have been out of town this last week hence the reason for the lack of posts.  My dad suffered a stroke so I spent my time in the ICU with him.  I am home now and so thrilled to say he is doing great!  So, today I am sending lots of LOVE to him in hopes of a speedy recovery!

Well…it is back to work for me…and in case you never peeked at my “Sweet Tweet” Collection…here it is!!  My sweet and talented friend Nancy from A to Zebra Celebrations and I collaborated on this party that would be great for Valentine’s Day or a darling baby shower.  We managed to pull this off for LESS than $100.00.

How did we do this?  Thanks for asking…here are some tips

1.  Borrow cake stands, platters, dishes, jars – ask around…between Nancy and I we had enough of these items to pull together to complete the table.

2.  Visit the Dollar Store – our local Dollar Store had some great seasonal items that could be incorporated into the party that were just the right colors.

3.  Treats – You don’t need to splurge on all of the treats…homemade it your most budget friendly option, but it is great to have one fabulous item, whether it is the cake, cookies, or cupcakes…that items(s) can take center stage.

4.  Make the party a playdate – for some of the secondary holidays…turn your party into a playdate.  Keep it small by limiting it to a few kids.  Provide the main food and drinks and have other mom bake a treat to bring and share.

5. Coupons – This is a must!!  Joann’s, Michaels, and Hobby Lobby always have coupons…strategize how to use them for that higher priced you have been eyeing up.

6.  Get crafty – try to make as much of the decor as possible by being creative with party printables

These are some super simple tips to help minimize the moola you spend all while throwing a super sweet soiree!!

Happy Valentine’s Day Chickies!!! x0x0 ~ rebecca
