May I ask you a Favor?

Caroline and Donnell had a fairy tale romance so their wedding favors had to step it up to shine like this beautiful couple!! Caroline chose two different designs; both had parchment colored background and a white floral to mimic their invitations.  She couldn’t decide between “Mr & Mrs” or “hello LOVE” so why not have both!

Mr & Mrs:

Happily Ever After

Lindsey and Chance are having their Cinderella ending (actually a beginning…). They wanted to extend their “happily ever after” wedding theme to the rehearsal dinner and welcome bags.

Glass slipper place cards were requested for the rehearsal dinner.

As well as Clock Towers and Carriages.

The out of town guests received Colorado-themed welcome boxes that included individualized glass slippers, carriages with the Colorado flag, and a story book cookie showcasing our Colorado mountains.

American Ninja Warrior

So William turned 6 and celebrated with an obstacle course and a blue, black and white themed party.  With the speed of a ninja, I pulled my trusty “kick backside” cutter out to create his party favors.

Lil Pumpkin is Sweet as Pie

My niece was trying to decide on the theme for her November baby shower. She was wavering between “Lil Pumpkin” and “Sweet as Pie”; well, why not both? Orange streamers and little baby pumpkins were strewn like confetti around house. Pies from her favorite local pie baker, Mom’s Apple Pie (boy, were they scrumptious), were the centerpieces of the dessert table.  And, of course, there were as many MMB cookies as I could carry on the plane. (Seriously, the DIA security folks don’t even bat an eye at my copious amounts of cookies anymore.) Here are some of the cookies that were plated for the dessert table. (Kaleida Cuts for the win on the wonkie onesie cookie cutter).

And these bad boys were bagged and tagged for the favors.  (yep, it’s a boy…)

Tori and Byron’s Wedding

Tori’s gown was structured and classic with just a touch of bling.  Perfectly and incredibly appropriate. So, true to Tori and Byron, the wedding/reception was equally classy, with all of the fabulous (and I do mean fabulous) details taken care of. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN!! The food was as plentiful as it was incredible and the dancing nonstop! I was pretty much blown away by the whole day/event. The photographer was Pat Robinson of Philly; can’t say enough positives about his work!

Our girls. The youngest, the maid of honor, and Tori, the BRIDE!!!

MMB cookie favors were served as parting gifts.  A play on the Philly (“knot”) pretzel.

The groom and bride each got a cookie box of their own.

Boy, Oh Boy

There are some people in life that you just HAVE to admire.  These cookies are heading to a baby shower celebrating the coming of their FOURTH boy! Holy testosterone! (As you can tell, we have a mere two children.  And I was pretty happy to have the energy for them….).

Blue and the number 4 were interwoven throughout the set. I added a little silver bling because everybody deserves a little bling (especially a mom of four!).  The “4” cutter is part of the zebrawood cutter set from SheyB ! They have such fast and friendly service!

This little outfit cutter is my current favorite.  Can’t get over how adorable it is. Thank you Kaleida Cuts (so many designs to take advantage of!)!!! The clever technique is from the genius Tammy Holmes.  Utterly brilliant design.  Utterly delicious eye candy.

Every boy in this family has a name that begins with the letter “C.” The fourth will as well. And heaven forbid that I not take advantage of a chance to word play.  I knew love was in the foreseeable future…

Hop to It

Ryan wanted her birthday to be centered around jack rabbits.  I did a cookie take on the invitation artwork (sorry I can’t give the artist credit/wish I knew who her/his name!) and added a few embellishments…

I wanted a soft background with lattice work  (those rabbits had me thinking of Mr. MacGregor’s fence but with something sweet for 5 year old girl …). Stencil hero Killer Zebras came through again with just the right touch.

After I flooded the cookie in pink and airbrushed gold sheen (Americolor), I put the base of white royal icing for the bunny (and the black eyes about 4 hours later).  They dried overnight before I added the details with my trusty Rainbow Dust pens.  Luckily I had some purple flowers I had made with leftover icing from another cookie set; they worked perfectly to sync up with the invite design. And the result:
