First Communion Favors That Express Your Faith

Early spring is the time to plan for Holy Communion celebrations, which, in addition to the church service, often includes a party after the service either at the celebrant’s home or at a restaurant.  Many parents like to give a small token of thanks to their guests to express their appreciation of sharing this very special day with them.  At Diva Entertains we offer many First Communion Favors that are both an expression of your faith and your appreciation.  We have so many to choose from including those that feature a cross, an angel, Madonna and Child or Jesus; we are sure to have the perfect choice for you that fits your faith, your style and your budget.

Brand new in 2016 is this beautiful Crystal Jesus on the Cross Favor that stands upright on your table or shelf.  We are sure you guests will cherish this very thoughtful and generous keepsake. It comes beautifully packaged in a silver, two-piece box.

Best Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies!

chocolate mint cookie recipe from scratch

Introducing what I think are the best chocolate mint chip cookies. It’s another great recipe out of my favorite cookie cookbook, Milk & Cookies: 89 Heirloom Recipes from New York’s Milk  Cookie Bakery.  Every recipe I’ve tried  from this book has been absolutely *delicious*!

But now let’s talk about these mint chip cookies surrounded by a rich chocolate base.  Everything up to the chocolate chips is part of a ‘dark chocolate base dough’ to which your choice of ingredients can be added.  In this case, I added a 12 oz. bag of mint chips and a bit of peppermint extract.  My next go at it will be with peanut butter chips!

Ballet and Ballerina Inspired Party Ideas

We have talked about ballerina parties before (HERE), but I don’t think we could ever have too much tulle and ribbon around here.  I found some fun new additions to ballet and ballerina inspired parties… and I have some featured items from the Diva Entertains shop too!  Here are some random ballet inspired ideas…

First, from pinterest (because I can’t find the original source), a super cute idea for forks at the ballerina party place settings:

From Kate Landers Events, a seriously AMAZING post about a Nutcracker Suite party.  Did I say amazing?

I also fell in love with these ballet cupcakes from Cute Food.  Although there isn’t a tutorial the comments under the post hints at how they can be decorated.  Personally I would print a picture of it and take it to my supermarket bakery and ask if they could recreate them – I do this all the time!how to make ballet tutu cupcakes

Another fun decor idea, again from pinterest (and I can’t find the original source on this one either, but it’s too cute to not share)… I don’t think this would be too difficult with some poster board and tulle and ribbon!

And how about some white chocolate covered oreos, with a gorgeous ballet design… from the Diva Entertains shop:
