Here we go – the penultimate Events A to Z! Hard to believe we’re already on Y – Yikes! But don’t fret because we have an awesome new Friday feature coming up after this series is over. It’s called “Friday Favors” and is going to feature candy-related party favors and crafts. We can’t wait to get started and have so many fun ideas to share! But first … Y! Y.

#Butterfinger Mousse Cheesecakes!

Well these are an unexpected little delicious surprise.  I was getting ready to change our “Recipe of the Week” column to “Peanut Butter Dessert of the Week” because it seems like I post about some kind of dessert of that type just about every week. I suppose you could argue that Butterfingers are of the peanut butter persuasion, but I don’t really think that counts. These yummy little mini cakes.

Coming Up – Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day … It’s time to get Patriotic!

I know, I know – school isn’t even out yet, so it’s kind of hard to mention Labor Day before summer has even begun. But it’s definitely not too soon to start planning for Memorial Day, which is in just a few weeks.  And we’re less than 2 months out from July 4th, so we’re well within the appropriate range to be planning a backyard BBQ or beach bash for.

You know what? It’s really hard to come up with an Event of the Week that begins with “X”. Last go-round we did an X-Men themed party and this time I have been stumped all week long. That is until I saw this adorable party from KitchenTrials! X’s and O’s – what a perfect, sweet party theme for a first or second birthday party, or a baby shower! Not only.

I shared this incredible cake from LifeLoveandSugar.com on our Facebook page a few days ago and haven’t been able to get it out of my mind ever since. I thought some of you who haven’t yet started to follow us on Facebook might like to become hypnotized by this cake’s deliciousness too.  (BTW, why haven’t you followed us on Facebook yet?

This “Wish Upon a Star” baby shower is absolutely adorable!   Seriously, could it not get any sweeter than that? The Tiffany blues, glittery golds and rustic wooden and twine touches in the decor are perfectly chic and modern for an elegant and sophisticated baby shower like this one. The brains behind this beauty are Barette and Christina of Widell Designs out of Philadelphia, PA, who had this to say about.

Mother’s Day is coming up soon (May 10 in the US – next weekend!), so if you haven’t planned something special for your Mom, it’s time to start thinking about it I’m not sure how “Mother’s Day Brunch” became such a popular and important aspect of Mother’s Day, but as a mother myself, I quite enjoy the occasion. However, in my house I do about 97% of the cooking (my.

http://www.sweetcitycandy.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Vintage-Candy-Buffet.jpgEvents A to Z: V is for Vintage and Nostalgic Candy Buffets!

We’re deviating a little bit from the usual “Events A to Z” to talk pretty much solely about vintage and nostalgic candy. Why, you ask? Well, believe it or not, but vintage and nostalgic candy can be an event all on it’s own! No, seriously! Think about it. Basically anyone having a “milestone” birthday – starting at age 25 – is going to have some vintage and nostalgic candy that.
