Cinco De Mayo Cookies

cinco 5 de mayo cookie cookie spinkles sprinkle gum drop icing

Bake or use pre-made sugar cookies – any recipe will do so use a favorite. They can be soft or crisp depending upon personal preference. Use icing and pipe (you can use a zip-lock baggie with corner cut off) a dollop right in the middle to attach your gum drop. Pipe around edge of gum drop and then around the edge of the cookie itself. Use candy sprinkles in multiple colors or candy sugar or one color. Sombreros are always individual so have fun and be creative and make each one different.

Crafty Egg Surprise CHEAP

eggSent to us from Cynthia and this originates from FaceBook profile: LittleBirdieInvitationsandDesigns. What a great cheap little egg gift that could be used to put in a basket, to decorate a table, little party gifts for adults, name tags with a tag tied on with a pretty ribbon. You can even used a multitude of different colored yarns that you have as leftovers. I am even thinking red, white and pink for Valentines Day, black and orange for Halloween. Birthdays could be colors to match your theme. Christmas red, green, white with something just very special inside. See where I am going? I even think you could get extra creative and glue or tie little embellishments onto these to make them extra special. You could even get the kids involved to make a bunch for a class party.

White Grape Peach Hawaiian Punch Spritzer

Angie_NewYearsRecipe5-200x300 Angie_NewYearsRecipe7-300x200

A delicious white grape spritzer is the perfect drink to bring in the New Year. Frozen fruit serves as yummy ice cubes and the super sour rim just might be sour enough to knock you into 2013.
What you need to make this delicious drink: 6 cans Welch’s white grape peach juice, 1 bottle cold sparkling white grape juice, fruit cocktail that you will freeze into pieces, Hawaiian Punch “singles to go” packets.
Dip the rim of a glass into the Welch’s white grape peach juice and then press the rim down into the Hawaiian Punch powder.
To create the Spritzer: 1. Add a few pieces of frozen fruit to the glass.  2. Fill half of the glass with Welch’s white grape peach juice. 3. Fill the rest of the glass with sparkling white grape juice.
Fruit flavored suckers make the perfect stirrers for these Super Sour White Grape Spritzer! If the Hawaiian Punch is too sour on the rim, use sugar instead.
