kinda like missing // but i'm still here!

Wednesday, April 22, 2015



So let me please just apologize for the absence,
My radio silence has been pretty constant, even on Instagram, just nothing, nada.
I need more hours in the day, if that could be possible it would be great! But around here I've just been busy, we have like 15 projects going on in our house, and that's consuming a majority of my time, plus work, plus moms best, plus church commitments! Yikes, like the only store I've gone to is the lumber store, like 1,000 times. But besides that we also have some pretty exciting news! My sister is having a baby, yes finally! We are so dang excited around here! So I've been busy gathering some fun inspiration! You can come check out all my house, outdoor, shower, & party lovin' inspo. here!

Here's what I've been inspired by lately! You can also click the link below to  follow me! Visit Chelsey Mass | Bright & Bold's profile on Pinterest.

Unicorn Toppers.

Tuesday, April 7, 2015



Hey friends, today I'm over here at Mom's Best sharing this DIY unicorn toppers
beware they are so easy you might just be tempted to make an entire fleet of them without even thinking! But seriously they are easy! And how fun are they for a party? You can make them into cake toppers, candy sticks, or drink stirrer. For this party we made these into treat sticks! I also threw a couple in some small vases as a centerpiece!  Be sure to stay tune for the party photos of this SUPER fun unicorn party I put together for a one and four-year-old nieces!

See the full tutorial over here, step by step photo included!


Unicorn Cookies.

Wednesday, April 1, 2015


First, outline your cookies, use the same frosting listed below, just add more powdered sugar to thicken it up, make sure its nice and stiff, meaning it will hold its shape!

Now fill these bad boys, this is the thin "flooding frosting". just use a piping bag with the end cut small, now just fill in around the outline, the frosting will "run together" this is good, this will fill in all the nooks. If you have any bubbles, use a tooth pick and pop them! Let your frosting dry.


Now fill in with the details, I'm going to be honest, I cheat a bit, sometimes if I need black (which is a hard color to mix, it always looks brown) I just buy the store bought and put a cake tip on the end of store bought tube, it works like a dream!



Hello, So still unicorn party around here, it's just getting good!
And since I had to bribe my neice not to have an Elsa cake or "tak-e" as she would say in her words, than unicorn cookies were a MUST, I know these cookies look somewhat intimidating but just trust me they aren't, actually the dough is super easy, and no chilling required! The frosting is 4 ingredients, yup that's it, so here's the recipes and the step by step photos are above, don't over think it. If your piping or outlining, make the frosting thick, if your filling, make it thin so you can push the frosting around. Have fun, this can be fun to make with the kiddos!

Sugar cookie recipe:

1 Cup butter, softened
1 Cup granulated white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 egg
2 teaspoons baking powder
3 cups all purpose flour

Bake 350 for 8 minutes! Recipe adapted from here, click here for the rest of the directions.


Icing Frosting:

1/4 cup meringue powder
1 cup cold water (NOT hot)
2-4 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract 


Mix these all together, just watch the consistency, if your needing thicker frosting for piping than add powdered sugar. If you need thinner, add water, just a couple drops goes a long ways.

Party Like a Unicorn.

Tuesday, March 17, 2015



Just doing a a little party prep around here, and as I was gathering party supplies for this little party I saw this cute little pink boxes, order them with these cute little unicorn toppers and packaged them up! I thought these little "party like a unicorn" boxes would be perfect for for the kiddos for the party. Instead of having a cookie cutter in each box I will be making unicorn cookies, which could be easily swapped out for the cookie cutter, same with the cupcakes!

This box literally takes minutes to assemble and if you happen to make a couple items (cotton candy sticks, cookies) that means this box comes in under $5 each. That makes these cuties super affordable, if you know an little girls in your life, they would probably love this! Happy gifting or party favoring!

So friends, Party Like A Unicorn!, or at least share the gift of partying like a unicorn!




Unicorn Cotton Candy

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

      

Hello! So Guess who's turning 1 & 4? My nieces, good thing they almost share a birthday!
So being the party planner I am, maybe I deemed my self that but that's totally fine, my sister asked me to plan a party. So naturally I ask my niece what kind of party she wants, any guesses....FROZEN
So it took everything in me to convince her that a unicorn party would be soooo much cooler, let's just say she had her doubts, but have some words like, glitter, cotton candy, cookies, confetti, she was convinced, thank heavens for 3 year old attention spans! So I won, her mom won, but now I'm in charge of pulling out all the stops for this little party. We picked up unicorn tee's, and some supplies are headed this way! Stay tune for all the party must have details + supplies I will be sharing to have a happy successful party!

P.S. photo steps above on how to create these little cotton candy sticks!
Here's the directions + supplies:

Cardstock
Hot Glue
Modge Podge
Glitter
Cotton Candy (you can pick this up at an grocery in the candy isle) 

Steps:
Cut your paper out into the shape of a triangle.Cut the end tip off, just a little bit. 
Now roll the paper into a cylindrical shape. Grab the glue gun & glue the edges down the "seam"
Once you have the cone glued, grab some modge podge, dip the end in than quickly dip the glued in, into glitter, let dry and ta-da done! Grab some cotton candy and stuff the top, easy peasy!
