Cookies and Cups is AMAZINGLY creative with her recipes.  Just take a look that this Ritz + Toffee bars, which she lovingly dubbed “White Trash Bars.” Not sure why, but it’s a clever name and it sticks. Anyway, this recipe is remarkably simple – it has 4 ingredients: Ritz crackers, toffee bits, sweetened condensed milk and frosting.  Voila!

I saw this post on Pizzazzerie.com about a super cute and clever Mad Scientist Birthday Party and just had to share.  Look at how much fun this party is for elementary-aged kiddos!  I love the white lab coats and bow tie.  Plus how cute is that kid with his Einstein hair?  Totes adorb.

Adorable Clifford Birthday Party!

Adorable Clifford Birthday Party!

Do you have a child obsessed with Clifford the Big Red Dog?  I know I certainly do.  Although, when my son requests a Clifford book he makes me change the name to “Oscar” because that’s the name of our dog.  Cute, right?  I know.  My kids are adorable. Speaking of adorable, this Clifford party is really something.  What a sweet, perfect party for both boys and girls.  With a simple.

Preppy Beach Party!

Preppy Beach Party!

One of my favorite party themes of all time is a good ole’ fashioned beach bash.  And I am also a total Benetton and Hilfiger wearing preppy. So when I saw this Preppy Beach Party combo of two of my favorite things on Kara’s Party Ideas, I nearly freaked out.  Why didn’t I think of this idea?  The ever-nautical colors of navy, orange and white really create a striking color.
