Guest Post: Watch Out! This Shark Party Will Bite Ya!!

Hello Lovelies! We are so excited here at B. Lovely Events to be guest posting today on the Home Seasons Blog. As summer is almost coming to a close we wanted to enjoy the last days of sunshine by showing you one of our favorite trends this summer…a shark party! With the ever growing popularity of shark week, shark themed parties started popping up everywhere and we must say we are quite smitten for this theme for a summer pool party. Whether it is a birthday party for a youngster or for the more mature and wise or just a party to enjoy the water and sunshine, Shark parties always pack a bite of loveliness. We love shark parties because even though they may be one of the most dangerous creatures in the water, at parties, their faces are just too darn cute on everything! How could you be scared of a smiling shark cake pop?! We will show you exactly what we mean with our round up of all of our favorite shark pool party ideas!

{This is the ultimate shark party from Renee’s Soirees! All of the sharked themed food is just too lovely. Just perfect for a pool party!}

Awesome Father’s Day Cupcakes

My dad would pick a sweet treat over savory any day. When I was thinking of possible treats to make him for Father’s Day this year, it was quite an easy choice. Cupcakes, of course!

Honestly, he would’ve been fine with plain ‘ole vanilla cupcakes from a box, but since it’s Father’s Day, I wanted to surprise him with something a little bit more fancy. We looked up many Father’s Day inspired cupcake, and found a bunch of ideas that we thought would be fun to share with everyone. If you’re baking cupcakes for your dad this Father’s Day too, this post will be a fun one!

No Bake Creepy Crawly (But Delicious) Dirt Cake

One time at a spring themed party, we were surprised at what was on the dessert table. There were little  cups of dirt, that people were eating! Turns out, it wasn’t dirt, but a yummy dessert called dirt cake. It’s made to look like a potted plant in the spring!

They’re actually quite easy to make, and not to mention delicious! We’re going to share with you a list of supplies to make your own at home! Serve them at your next spring party to entertain the guests!

Ingredients/Supplies – to make ~6 servings

  • 8 oz of Oreos or chocolate sandwich cookies (1/2 a pack)
  • 2 packs of vanilla pudding mix
  • 2 1/4 cups of milk
  • 8 oz of Cool Whip
  • 6 oz of cream cheese
  • 3 tbs of room temp butter
  • gummy worms

Combine the cream cheese together with the butter. In another bowl, mix the vanilla pudding mix and milk together. Fold in the Cool Whip and the cream cheese mixture. Next, crumble the cookies (either crush by hand, blender, or a food processor) until it looks like dirt.

In a cup, put alternating layers of cookie crumbles and cream cheese mix, starting and ending with a cookie layer. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

You can substitute the vanilla pudding with chocolate pudding to make this extra chocolatey, or top it off with a gummy worm to make it more creepy crawly!

This quick and easy dessert is great to serve at your next springtime party. It’s also fun to make with kids! Let us know if you’ve had dirt cake before in the comments below!

Beautiful Spring Flower Cupcakes

We all know that spring is flowers galore, and that’s not just limited to the plants outside. We see touches of floral in furniture, our clothing, and now even in food!

One beautiful way to portray flowers in food is through cupcakes. The art of cupcake decorating has evolved tremendously the past few years, and have gotten so elaborate. They can even make icing and fondant look like real flowers! Here are some of our favorite floral cupcake finds we came across from some talented bakers and decorators!
