mustache and bow ties

my nine-year old son, max, has been obsessed with mustaches and bow ties for several years now. not sure where it comes from but i love it! he would think nothing of donning a fake mustache and a suit and walking around our local mall. wish i could be that carefree. mustaches and bow ties have also been a big craze all over the internet for a while now...

seen here on kids tees...

and here on a bride and groom....

and look at these gorgeous bow ties made from vintage fabric...

so of course i had to make cookies...

don't mustaches and bow ties this cute make you smile?

lily's 6th birthday

my daughter, lily, turned six yesterday. since sugarlily was named after her (coined by a dear friend of mine), we had a baking party, of course, but we made everything BUT cookies. all the girls had a great time making chocolate dipped strawberries, fruit tarts, mini apple pies, chocolate candies, strawberry jam and decorating cupcakes. take a peek...

party inspiration one charming party

i'm already thinking about next year's party...

mother's day

is your mom a stylish gardener?

or does she enjoy a spot of tea?
is she the grandmotherly type?
or just the queen bee?

there's a cookie for her....
