Hello Fall Gift

I will be the first to admit that summer is my favorite season of the year.  If it wasn’t for all the cute fall decorations and super yummy pumpkin-flavored things, I would seriously go into fall kicking and screaming.  So, this year when fall reared its head yet again, I needed my pumpkin fix quick!  And, just like magic our latest shipment from Seattle Chocolates arrived with their seasonal truffle flavor, Pumpkin Spice.  Ahh, I was seriously giddy!  I quickly scooped up a handful of truffles along with our new ‘eek’ air filled balloon, and a chai tea candle.  Before I knew it, I was enjoying all my favorite things about fall – cute decor, delicious pumpkin goodies and my favorite smells – and reminded that each season has its highlights.        

 

Happy Fall!

Bridal Shower Brunch by Mint Event Design

We are so excited to share with you this gorgeous Bridal Shower Brunch by Carolina of Mint Event Design.  This shower is filled with so many lovely details!  I mean who doesn’t love mimosas and cupcakes with your besties?!

Carolina used our candy tube for favors and we think they look totally darling!

I love the classic look of this place setting.  The utensil tag is such a simple and lovely touch that really pulls together the whole setting.

This table runner is quite possibly my favorite part of this table.  This garland adds a beautiful pop of color and fresh look to this table.

St. Patrick’s Day Celebration Ideas

Do you have a leprechaun that plays tricks at your house?  We’ve got one that likes to turn our milk green, but he also leaves yummy treats so we can’t get too mad at him.

This St. Patrick’s Day surprise your littles with Lucky Leprechaun Potion.  We poured milk into one of our cute little milk jugs then added green food coloring and just a dash of mint extract (got to keep things interesting). Add a cute tag to it and voila!  Lucky Leprechaun Potion!

I like to make a little treat to go with the potion – this year I’m making Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats.  Brown Eyed Baker has a fab recipe and it’s so easy!  If you like rice crispy treats you’ll love these!

Looking for more ideas? Check out our St. Patrick’s Day Pinterest board!

Cheers!

Fancy Foil Baking Pans

It’s that time of year again for baking, entertaining, wrapping presents, and shopping… oh boy! There’s a lot to do.  Don’t fret – we can help you save time in style.One of our favorite time saving products is our foil baking pans. They come in a variety of sizes, they’re incredibly easy to use, and the lids add a fancy touch.

foil baking pans

It’s simple, bake your favorite dish or dessert directly in the foil pan. Once cooled, attach the fancy lid and decorate as you like or just write a simple to-and-from in the convenient space provided. Whether your pan is heading straight into the fridge for the next day or over to a friends house as a lovely home baked gift, you won’t be able to beat the ease of baking in these pans.

If you want to jazz up the top, Fancy That can help. We have lots of colored twine, ribbon and tags. We even have special doo-daddies to put on the top of your pan like a hand-stamped spoon, fork, or even pretty napkins to make your gift complete.
If you are needing a perfect recipe to fill the pan give this one a try.

Grandma’s Cinnamon Rolls

2 cups sifted flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 cup vegetable oil

3/4 cup buttermilk

8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter softened

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1. Combine flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl and mix well. Stir in vegetable oil. Add buttermilk and stir just until blended.

2. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Roll dough into a 15×8″ rectangle.

3. Preheat the oven to 400. Lightly spray the foil pan with Pam.

4. Spread butter over the dough. Combine granulated sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and mix well. Sprinkle over butter. Roll up rectangle, jelly roll fashion, starting from one long side. Pinch seam to seal.

5. Cut the roll into 1 1/2″ slices. Arrange the slices, cut side up, in prepared foil pan. The circle pan works best for this amount of cinnamon rolls. Bake until lightly browned, about 20-25 min. Remove from oven. Let cool.

Enjoy!
