Small Delights

"A multitude of small delights constitutes happiness."
~Charles Baudelaire

I look forward to these every Spring.
Cadbury Mini Eggs.
My absolute most favorite candy.
Aren't they such a lovely little sweet?
I've seen them in the stores for a few weeks,
but in an attempt to "be good", I hadn't bought any.
Until today.
I felt I deserved a little treat.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, filled with small delights!

I really hate to start each blog post with "things have been so busy here", but it is true! I need to get back into blogging more regularly. So, that is my plan. :)

We recently celebrated my Littlest One's 2nd birthday! She actually had 2 parties, since we have a big group of family and friends. She had a blast! We did a cupcake theme, as you can see. Lots of pink, lots of sweets!

Here are the invitations that I made.

The cupcake part lifted out of the liner to reveal the event details.

Here are some cute cupcake favors. Each one of these holds half a big bag of M&Ms!!! I saw the idea for these in the May 2008 issue of Parents Magazine. you basically fill a baggie with candy and tuck it in a paper cup to resemble a cupcake. These could be foofed-up into something really cute, with ribbons, tissue fringe, etc. I just was running out of time! Yikes!

Some chocolate pops we made. We did iced cupcake cookies too, but I guess I didn't take a photo. I'm pretty sure that all of the kids had enough sugar by the end of this party!!!

I have definitely been on a cupcake kick! These ornaments weren't for the party, but for Natalea's Valentine's Ornament Swap. Such a fun swap... you can see all of the other lovely ornaments from the other players here.
