Cookie Favors – The Perfect Birthday Party Favor for Kids of all Ages! (that means adults too!)

In all of my years of entertaining and owning a party store, the one thing I know for sure is that EVERYONE loves to receive an edible favor.  And tops is a beautifully decorated, delicious cookie favor!  And that’s exactly what you’ll find at Diva Entertains!

Let me introduce you to some of my favorite Cookie Favors:

As you can image, kids go CRAZY over cookies.  One look at these fun, decorated sugar cookies will make their eyes pop!

Our Jungle Animal Cookies are tons of fun (they are also very popular for Safari Themed Baby Showers) and you can order an assortment of those shown  or any subset:

St. Patrick’s Day Food and Fun

It’s almost March, and this year St. Patrick’s Day and Easter are really close to one another… and I also have three kid’s birthday to plan in between, so I’m gathering ideas as quickly as I can.  I found some great green and gold and rainbow DIY projects and recipes!

From The Decorated Cookie, check out the St. Patrick’s Day Marshmallow pops.  These are so easy to make!

 

 

A lovely “Lucky” Milk glass, for St. Patrick’s Day decor, from you stir me, the first of several St. Patrick’s Day crafts.

From Just Mommies, a super cute Four Leaf Cootie Catcher (yes, these are still popular with kids).  They would be great for a St. Patrick’s Day party favor.  Use the “Next” button on the post to see step-by-step instructions.

 

From Tom Kat studio, cute and quick free St. Patrick’s Day cupcake toppers:

Halloween Party Planning

It’s that time of year!  The weather begins to cool, the children go back to school… and the Halloween party planning begins!  My kids are talking their costumes and are thinking about witches and ghouls and zombies… and I’m thinking butterflies and action heroes.  We may have some heated discussions before we are through!

Anyway! I have some great Halloween party ideas for you today, and I will follow up next week with some more.  Ready??  Here we go!

First, from the Hostess blog, a STUNNING Black Cat Ball – such a beautiful, glamorous FUN way to celebrate a kids or adult Halloween party.  As always, scroll through the amazing photos, get inspired by the styling, and check out the credits and details at the end for tips on how to do something similar.

From Anders Ruff, an incredibly GLAM Halloween party collection – all downloadable/printable – makes party planning EASY!  These are not free Halloween printables, but they are inexpensive and I thought they were worth sharing!

How about some specific tutorials for Halloween party food?  From The Girl Who Ate Everything, some incredibly fun (and easy) DRACULA DENTURES.  My boys LOVE this idea!

From our favorite cookie maker, Sugar Belle, comes a unique idea… Pumpkin Pops, made SUPER easy with suckers and icing!

Better Homes and Gardens has a series of great Halloween party games for kids but I think some are great for adults too.  I think this “Guess How Many Candy Corn” may be my favorite one, just for ease of putting together and ease of “playing the game”.

And Martha’s Stewart’s “Pop The Balloon” Game is sweet perfection – easy to set up, and FUN for the kiddos!


There are SO many, many ideas out there, I may just have to write a second (or third) post about Halloween party planning!  Are YOU getting ready for a Halloween event?  We’d love to hear about it!

Party Popsicle Style

Did you know popsicles aren’t just for kids anymore?  Impress yourself and your friends with these homemade popsicle recipes for you to enhance your warm summer evening get togethers!

From ModClothBlog, a pina colada popsicle recipe:

From LilSugar, a YUMMY looking fresh fruit popsicle recipe (and these ARE ok for kiddos too!):

From HWTM blog, a quick and easy way to add popsicles to cocktails...

Endless Simmer has a HUGE list of “pop-tails” recipes… which are popsicle/cocktail combos.  I’m pretty sure my favorite will be Strawberry Peach Vodka Collins Popsicles… but you can click through the link and find YOUR favorite!

And finally, if you are really popsicle-ambitious, you need to check out IcyPops.com for a whole SITE-full of great popsicle ideas. There are DIY recipes for fun shapes, flavor combinations and more!

Bring on the POPS!!
