Frozen Yoghurt Dots

31 Oct

Super keen to give this idea a try and thought I’d share it with you. Check out the original post over at the ‘Small Fry Blog‘ for the original post and the ‘recipe’. Enjoy, I’m sure my little monkey is going to!

All things Jelly… or Jello…

8 May

Here’s my confession… nooooo, I don’t have some juicy story to share with you to explain my absence from my blog, but what I can tell you is that I love jelly (or as my husband has just informed me – what they refer to as jello over the seas)… red jelly to be exact, covered in custard when ever possible!

I saw this recipe for Jello Biscuits, from I Heart Nap Time and was about to share on Facebook, but thought I’d do a blog post of Jelly instead 🙂

I’ve got my monkey’s 2nd birthday party coming up (more of that to come obviously) and think I’m definitely going to try making some of these for the party… My mom always used to make a layered jelly ‘cake’ for my birthday parties, so I reckon having something made of jelly will be a good continuation of mini tradition! Recipe over at Our Best Bites

And how about these Jello Shots from JSTK – so much of pretty!

And then I had to share this idea from Party Frosting with you – the picture isn’t great, but just love the idea… not sure I’ve seen blue jelly in South Africa, but as I said, I’m a red jelly girl so don’t bother looking at the other colours! Anyway – for anyone having a boat or nautical party for their little ones….

Anyone in SA know where I could get letter moulds to try this out? (From Plenty of Colour)

Over and out, off to raid my daughters bowl of Jelly that’s in the fridge… no body tell anyone..

Stripey Straws

2 Apr

You’ll have to agree with me that these stripey straws could brighten up any occasion… they’re almost what you need on a Monday morning to drink a glass of milk with just to have a good start to your week….

Love these coloured straws, available from Etsy

Love the aqua and red colour combination from Miss Indie Design

And this turquoise with the chocolate milk from Shop Sweet Lulu

Love this idea for a Bridal Shower from Erin Ever After  – drinking bubbly out of milk bottles, through these cute red stripey straws…


Love these marshmellow ‘cake pops’ and especially love how they used the straws… very pretty (from Mommy Gaga)
