Flower Pot Muffins with Candy Roses

Mother's Day is almost here and when I came across these adorable silicone flower pots for baking, I knew I had to make a Mother's Day treat with them! My Mom loves gardening so I decided to use the Candy Roses I created for Stella's birthday last month and add them to a Chocolate Flower Pot Muffin.
They turned out cuter than I imagined and are a precious Mother's Day gift and treat!

Rainbow Fruit Platter with Marshmallow Cloud Dip

As a Mama with two kiddos under 5, I try to come up with clever way to get them to eat their fruits and veggies. We call broccoli "trees" and add spinach to our eggs and pasta. My girls like most fruit but I thought as a special treat I would make them this Rainbow Fruit Platter with Marshmallow Cloud Dip. 
No surprise here, it was a hit and they gobbled it right up. We first had it on St Patrick's Day and I have since made it again for a spring time treat. This would be fun served at a picnic, potluck, birthday party, and for a holiday appetizer platter.

 These bite size S'Mores are fun to make and eat and are made with only 3 ingredients!
I actually made these on a whim this week to use up leftover Peeps after I made my Peeps Rice Crispie Treats. I didn't have graham crackers so I decided to make Mini S'Mores with vanilla wafers.
I love the mini size and the colorful gooey marshmallow in these fun treats!

DIY Candy Rose Bouquet

My sweet Stella Rose turned two today and I don't think it has really sunk in that my littlest babe is not a baby anymore at all! We had a Princess Tea Party last month for her since she is lovin' anything and everything Beauty and the Beast lately. 
I even added these roses to Beauty and the Beast cups, filled with pretty fabric strips, and they were easy party centerpieces! 

But for her birthday today, my husband and I created this gorgeous Candy Rose Bouquet for our little rose. You are not going to believe how easy it is to make using Jolly Rancher candy! 
Be sure to check out our adorable party here

Embarking on a rollercoaster journey full of action and danger, the Smurfs are on a course that leads to the discovery of the biggest secret in Smurf history! Rated PG.
