Ever After High: Spring Unsprung Party

Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 8.34.30 PMI am so stoked to be part of the Netflix #StreamTeam! I was hand selected to be part of their exclusive blogger network to help share the awesomeness that is Netflix streaming. Disclosure: Netflix provided me with a device and a year long subscription to stream content. All opinions are 100% my own.

 

Last month, Netflix premiered the brand new animated feature based on the popular Ever After High doll franchise. To celebrate, we whipped up an Ever After High: Spring Unsprung themed viewing party!

If you aren’t familiar with Ever After High, the magical story lines follow the teenage sons and daughters of classic fairytale characters. Apple White is the daughter of Snow White, Alistar Wonderland is the son of Alice, Bunny Blanc is the daughter of The White Rabbit. My daughter’s favorites are Briar Beauty (daughter of Sleeping Beauty) and C.A. Cupid (daughter of Eros). If you are as confused as I was, see all the Ever After High characters here.

In Ever After High: Spring Unsprung, Kitty Cheshire’s mom plays a trick on Alistair Wonderland during Ever After High’s Spring Fairest, it might ruin the celebration’s happy ending. My daughter and her friends gave the movie two thumbs up! The really great news is that Netflix will release a 12-episode series later in 2015.

Let’s get to the Ever After High party details!

I was inspired by the characters and their extravagant headwear to create our own floral crowns. I followed this tutorial from Grow Creative to create the tissue paper pom poms. I made tons of extras because they packed such a colorful punch. Staple the tissue paper flowers to baker’s twine and wrap the twine tightly around a headband.

I love following a theme for my parties and took my decorating cues from the Spring Unsprung storyline. Early in the movie, the students are preparing for the annual Spring Fairest celebration. Their palette was black and white to represent the passing of winter and tons of bright colors to represent the coming of spring. Easy enough!

A black tablecloth, black and white striped paper products, and black and white polka dot paper straws mixed with the colorful tissue paper flowers and balloons set the foundation for the treat table. I attached an Ever After High: Spring Unsprung photo to the balloon as a centerpiece for the table.

Let’s take a closer look at the treats! I created labels for all the goodies by using a white chalkboard pen and the same paper punch I used to make the tissue paper flowers.

Halloween Popcorn | Adventures in Pinterest

Happy one year anniversary to Adventures in Pinterest!

This project all started when Anna took on 30 Days of Pinterest last year and convinced me, Megan and Jessica to contribute. We all liked it so much we decided to continue tackling all the pretty things pinned on Pinterest. Some have been winners, some have not. Anyone remember the S’Mores Brownies?

With Halloween on the horizon, I’ve been brainstorming super cheap and easy alternatives to the Boo Bucket. Now, I don’t typically spend a lot of money on filling my boo buckets. My favorite filler is boxed cake mix, a can of frosting and some Halloween sprinkles but some people just want a treat they can enjoy right that very minute.

Hello, Halloween Popcorn.

I've been brainstorming super cheap and easy alternatives to the Boo Bucket and have come up with this yummy Halloween Popcorn recipe.

These are thousands of Halloween Popcorn recipes on Pinterest. I went to the store to get what I needed to make this version but as I stood in the candy aisle realized that I could make any variation of the recipe that I wanted to.

Peanut Butter Pretzel Popcorn

1 bag of microwave popcorn

1/2 bag Wilton Vanilla flavored Candy Melts

1 cup Peanut Butter M&Ms

2 cups pretzels

Halloween Sprinkles

This recipe is a total no brainer. Pop your popcorn, melt your candies, add your pretzels, candy and sprinkles. Let cool and eat.

I do have a couple of tips from my mistakes.

1. Skip the buttered popcorn. Your popcorn will be greasy and yellow, so just skip it and get the “natural” variety from Orville Redenbacher.

2. Sift your popcorn from the seeds.

I've been brainstorming super cheap and easy alternatives to the Boo Bucket and have come up with this yummy Halloween Popcorn recipe.

3. Mix your popcorn and melted candy melts in a large Ziploc bag – Shake & Bake style – and then spread it out on a cookie sheet to add the other ingredients.

I've been brainstorming super cheap and easy alternatives to the Boo Bucket and have come up with this yummy Halloween Popcorn recipe.

Once it cools, bag it up into a cellophane bag and tie it with a bow. Each Christmas, my neighbor treats us to homemade candies and it’s a highlight of the season. I think a bag of this Halloween Popcorn will be gladly received by anyone.

Easy Halloween Treats

We’ve hosted a kids Halloween party for some years now. I tend to go a little overboard because Halloween is fun and I like to make my guests feel like I’ve gone the extra mile for their enjoyment.

Halloween treats can make a big impact. But where to start? I usually choose a theme or color palette that will set the tone for food and decor. Last year, we threw a monster bash.

Candy Coated Monster Marshmallow Pops

Cake pops are cute but they are a lot of work. My friend Megan blogged about these marshmallow pops which are way easier to make with the same visual impact. I dipped regular sized marshmallows into green Wilton candy melts and stuck a few candy eyes to make Monster Marshmallow Pops. You can make these a few days ahead storing them candy side down on wax paper. On party day, I insert lollipop sticks and display in cups or lay on a tray.

How about a Boo Bucket? Watch here how to make one!

These semi-homemade Halloween treats are a party favorite and super easy to make. How cute are these Candy Coated Marshmallow Pops?

Mummy Cakes

What’s a Monster Bash without mummies? A couple years ago I made these mummy pizzas that were cute but too hard to assemble and keep warm for a big party of hungry kids. I used Little Debbie Fancy Cakes, Wilton Black Sparkle Gel and more candy eyes to create these mummy cakes. Tip: if you’re a crazy perfectionist – like myself – turn your cakes so the icing runs horizontal like mummy wrap. Can you spot the one mummy cake that doesn’t fit?

These semi-homemade Halloween treats are a party favorite and super easy to make. All you need is a box of Little Debbie snack cakes, candy eyes and cake decorating gel!

Frankenstein Cakes

Ok, so they don’t technically look like Frankenstein but those worried brows remind me of the big lug. To make these, I recommend Little Debbie Swiss Rolls instead of Hostess Ho Hos. The chocolate on the Ho Hos were often cracked and crumbly and their tube shape was inconsistent. I used the same Wilton Gel and candy eyes for these too. Tip: Refrigerate the cakes before and after putting the faces on them. The chocolate gets sort of sweaty and soft pretty quickly.

Pretzel Witch Brooms

These are always a big hit, I think, because of the sweet and salty combination. This is the one treat that takes the most time to put together and they are gone in a flash when kids grab them by the handful. To make, I use pretzel sticks, Fruit by the Foot and a pair of kitchen scissors. Wrap the Fruit by the Foot around the tip of a pretzel stick and press together to adhere. Snip the fruit roll-up three or four times lengthwise to create the bristles. You’ll get 4 or 5 sticks per foot of fruit roll up.

These semi-homemade Halloween treats are a party favorite and super easy to make.

Pumpkin Fake-Outs

I’d be a horrible host if I only served snack cakes and sugar to my guests. A tray of these Pumpkin Fake-Outs made by peeling clementines and adding Sour Punch Apple Straws for the stem are surprisingly popular. Tip: I peel these the night before the party and drape a slightly wet paper towel on top so they don’t dry out. I recommend waiting to add the Sour Punch Apple Straws until close to party time so they don’t get too gummy. Tip: You’ll only need one package of Sour Punch straws because a little goes a long way.

These semi-homemade Halloween treats are a party favorite and super easy to make.

What do you think? These are pretty easy, right? You’re mostly turning store bought items into one of a kind Halloween treats!

Who Really Eats Pineapple Upside-Down Cake?

We took a family vacation to Kauai earlier this month. Seven glorious days in the land of never-ending crashing waves and turn down service.

Shipwreck Beach, Poipu, Kauai

And dessert, like every night.

One night we wandered around a bit trying to decide what to eat for dinner. We had already planned to grab ice cream at Lappert’s for dessert so I was bummed when I saw pineapple upside-down cake on the dessert menu at Roy’s.

I've been obsessed with baking a pineapple upside-down cake since our recent trip to Hawaii. The recipe from EugenieKitchen.com was perfect.

Back at the hotel, I pinned two recipes for the cake that had been on my mind all night. They’ve both been re-pinned over one hundred times already. Who knew so many people liked pineapple upside-down cake because my husband cringed at the prospect of me baking this cake.

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

I've been obsessed with baking a pineapple upside-down cake since our recent trip to Hawaii. The recipe from EugenieKitchen.com was perfect.

Of the two recipes, I chose this one from EugenieKitchen.com. She has stunning photographs and I love her how-to videos. Her suggested prep time of 20 minutes took me way longer and I had to shave nearly 15 minutes off the 50-60 minute bake time. The cake was definitely tasty. Not too sweet, maybe a little bit under done – but that was this baker’s way to either 1. under bake all things or 2. burn them to a crisp.

I've been obsessed with baking a pineapple upside-down cake since our recent trip to Hawaii. The recipe from EugenieKitchen.com was perfect.

My pineapple upside-down cake obsession has definitely been met. Now, life would be complete if I could get someone to leave a chocolate on my pillow.

Don’t miss what my friends are doing for this month’s Adventures in Pinterest. Check out projects from Anna, Jessica and Megan.

Headband Bookmark | Adventures in Pinterest

My six year old loves to read and to be read to. But with summer, her regular bedtime routine has been completely obliterated since I promised she could play outside until dusk. In So Cal, that’s right around 8:00pm and after a shower and brushing teeth, bedtime looks a lot like lights out.

We’ve been trying to make our way through a summer reading list, sneaking in a few chapters between running errands and afternoons at the pool. I pinned this No Sew Elastic Bookmark craft from Thirty Handmade Days months ago and knew it was exactly what we needed to bookmark the 800 books she’s currently making her way through.

headband bookmark

If I’m being honest, I pinned the bookmark craft and never looked at it again. Raise your hand if you do that to. That’s the whole point of these Adventures in Pinterest posts – to go back through my Pinterest boards and actually make a project I’ve pinned. Anyway, I knew the bookmarks would be super easy to make. I grabbed a couple of elastic headbands on clearance at Old Navy and way too many buttons from the craft store.

cropped buttons

The problem with not looking at the original pin again was that I didn’t realize I would need flat elastic headbands. I got the ones that are knotted off. It works but what the heck do you do with the knotted part? I moved the knot to the back of the book but then the book doesn’t lay flat or stack nicely with a set. Whatever. You could move it to the top and give your book at mohawk too. I like the idea that I the knotted elastic head bands can be adjusted for thinner or thicker books, too.

bookmarks

Fun, right? The bonus here is that my daughter really likes to wear headbands in her hair and these totally double as an accessory. Not my original plan, but why not?

Ice Cream Toppings Buffet

DIY Summer Activity Calendar

Seventy-one days of summer, yo.

There is excitement in my tone, I swear. I’m really looking forward to completely eliminating our school routine. I want lazy beach days, fun pool days, riding bikes in the street until sun down, and everything else that does not at all resemble packing a school lunch and making sure the reading log is updated. But, I need structure and a plan, too. Otherwise, we’ll still be in pajamas at noon because we (er…I) wasted the morning away on Facebook and watching television.

The solution? A summer activity calendar.

I’m highly visual and need to see all of our commitment in one space. Plus, there is educational benefit in calendar math and counting down the days to first grade for my daughter and this was a fun DIY project she and I could do together. Mind you, I had to let go of my Type A-Perfectionist tendencies when she started putting beach and camping stickers on every single date. Whatever.

sum activity calendar

This project is so super easy.

Grab a poster board and washi tape from your local craft store, Target or Dollar Store. These items are incredibly inexpensive and can be found for probably less than $5.

Figure out how many days of summer you have. For us, it was 71.

IMG_3511

Measure out how many squares you need equal to the number of days the kids are out of school. Oh boy, this my friends…not easy. I had to recruit the husband to figure out the square size to get us 71 — or somewhere sort of close.

IMG_3510

Use the washi tape to mark off the individual boxes. I love washi tape because it’s so easy to work with and there are a billion different options to create the design you want.

IMG_3514

While it doesn’t look like a typical calendar, it still illustrates the number of days. We plotted the dates and marked the events that we already knew there were plans (i.e. family vacations, camp and weekend trips). On those days, my daughter stuck stickers that were appropriate for the activity planned. Again, hit your dollar bins for cute summer stickers. In the remaining days, I had her write in things like “San Diego” or “OC Fair.”

IMG_3516

IMG_3581

We had some precut letters left over from a sign we made earlier in the year to give it a title (if you can’t see it, it reads “In Summer” because we’re still obsessed with Frozen. Aren’t you?) We clipped it up on my daughter’s art easel and now we wait until school gets out!

What are your plans this summer?

Seven Fruit Infused Water Recipes

We had a crazy heat wave here in So Cal last month. It was 100+ degrees and miserable. Scrolling through Instagram, I came across a tall drink of water. Literally. My friend Alex had posted a gorgeous glass of water infused with mint, orange, lemon and lime. And this is when my total obsession with fruit infused water began.

Kind of perfect for summer, right?

seven fruit infused water recipes

I’m sure there are a billion fruit infused water recipes all over the internet and Pinterest. The following combinations were created simply from what organic fruit was available when I was at the market and what flavors I found most appealing. A note about organic fruit. I typically buy organic fruit especially those on the dirty dozen list. There definitely are non-organic fruit options available that can be used to make fruit water. Check out the clean 15 list for what those are.

mint cucumber

This is the combination that kicked off the obsession. One cucumber, one orange, one lemon and a small bunch of mint (12-15 leaves). I like to make this in the morning and drink it at lunch and throughout the rest of the day.

blueberry mint

Quite possibly my favorite of them all – blueberries and mint! This one is just so delicious and I’ve made it several times over. I like to let this one  come together for about six hours before drinking. Love making it at night and by morning it’s ready to go. The flavor reminds of blueberry pancake syrup! 1/2 cup of blueberries and a small bunch of mint.

orange mango lime

I wanted to try something a little more tropical with this orange, lime and mango combination. I learned with this combo that the mango breaks down very quickly in the water. I also learned that I really love the flavor of lime and just started adding a squeeze of lime to my seltzer water. Limes are pretty pricy right now because of the lime shortage in California. So, don’t let those limes go to waste. One orange, one lime, one small mango.

strawberry lime

Strawberries are tricky because they can get super funky (no, not a technical term!) if in water for too long. I found that the lime really over powered the strawberries in this combination. My biggest mistake was making this the night before and drinking it the following day. I think you’d be better off making it in the morning and drinking it at lunch time — and then be done with it. Maybe omit the lime, too.

raspberry pom

I was standing in line at Starbucks when I saw a can of their Refresher drinks in the cold case. Raspberries and pomegranate! No, I did not peel and seed a pomegranate for this combination. I bought a package of pom seeds from Trader Joe’s. I really liked this combo because it was sort of tart. 1/2 cup raspberries, 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds. This one is OK to make the night before and drink at lunch the following day.

apricot mint 1

I love apricots. My grandmother had an apricot tree in her backyard when I was growing up and I would eat tons of them in an afternoon. Not the best idea, yo. Apricots really get things moving. You live and learn, friends. Six small apricots halved and seeded, one bunch of mint. I drank a couple hours after I made it. I didn’t drink this one entirely and after a few days of it being in the refrigerator my husband asked if I was making hooch.

blackberry mint 1

Another absolute favorite of mine – blackberry and mint! My grandmother also had a blackberry bush and I have so many wonderful memories of picking blackberries in the afternoon. Adding mint just takes it to another refreshing level. If you haven’t noticed, I love using mint in this recipes! 1/2 cup blackberries, 1 small bunch of mint. Make the night before and drink the following day.

I’ve been thinking of a few other combinations. What do you think of these: fresh coconut and lime? apricot and blackberry? blueberries and acai berries? strawberry and basil?

Summer Beach Essentials with OneBar

Tracking Pixel
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of OneBar.

Summer is here and we have big plans to spend many afternoons at the beach. I love summer and look forward to that perfect mix of sand and salt on my skin after a long day of building sand castles and playing in the surf. It’s really my favorite time of the year.

I usually try to keep a beach bag ready for an impromptu trip. Clean beach towels, sunscreen, sand toys, and snacks are our summer beach essentials. I throw the bag, a chair and a sun umbrella in the back of the car and we’re ready to watch the sun dip into the Pacific.

summer beach essentials | www.wendy-nielsen.com

I prefer to hit the beach after lunch time so that I can totally avoid packing sandwiches and lugging a cooler. Beach days should be easy breeze, right? I fill up some water bottles, grab a few snacks and bring a couple of bucks for a frozen banana.

So, let’s talk snacks. I’ve been working really hard on eliminating the junk food in our home. OneBar is perfect for an afternoon at the beach. They are small, individually wrapped and pack a whopping full serving of pure fruit. There are several things I really, really like about Onebar. 1. I know what all the ingredients are. No funky chemicals! 2. Its gluten-free, wheat-free, vegan, peanut-free and soy-free. Plus, it’s low on the glycemic index which is an A+ for this Paleo eating girl. 3. It contains an African super fruit called Baobab.

What’s baobab? It’s a super fruit fairly new to the U.S. but used for centuries in Africa. Baobab has nearly six times the amount of potassium found in bananas, lots of vitamin C and is a great source of fiber and magnesium. It also is one of the few sources of dietary calcium found in plants – perfect for vegans and vegetarians.

OneBar Giveaway at www.wendy-nielsen.com

OneBar comes in three flavors: apple, mango and cherry. They are super fragrant and remind me of the fruit roll ups they used to sell in bulk in the produce section of the grocery store. Apple is tart and tasty! Mango is fresh and leaves me craving Thai food. Cherry is my favorite, though. It tastes like perfectly ripe cherries without the mess.

Show OneBar Where You Go on Instagram! Tag @theonebar

OneBar is more affordable than most snack bars on the market retailing for $.99/ or a box of 12. OneBar is available online at theonebar.com and speciality stores and markets. Until August 31st, my readers can get 25% off their total order at theonebar.com with the coupon code EasyFruit.

Succulent Gardening | Adventures in Pinterest

My neighbor recently suggested I should fill the two empty urns flanking my front door with succulents. Apparently, the pots filled with dried out dirt weren’t really doing it in terms of curb appeal. I sort of agreed.

I searched Pinterest for how to put together an arrangement of succulents and found some really pretty stuff – including this photo from Better Homes and Gardens. I loved the combination of plants used and that they identified the exact plants to get. I also found this photo which made me laugh hysterically like a 12-year-old boy.

We checked out several garden centers and I found myself totally overwhelmed at the number of succulents available. I couldn’t find the plants BHG suggested – which totally pains me because I wanted that exact look – but bought some that were close enough.

succulents

a. Senecio String of Bananas

b. Senecio vitalls

c. Aptenia cordifolia

d. Sedum Gold Moss

e. Hens and Chicks Krebs 2

I didn’t buy the right amount of plants because I feel like things should be grouped in odd numbers and didn’t realize this oversight when I was filling up my cart. Oh well.

I feel sort of meh about the final product and hope that it will fill in a little bit. At the very least, the urns look way better than before.
