Homemade Almond Joy

This recipe for homemade Almond Joy is super simple and they turn out amazing! Almond Joy happens to be one of my favorite candy bars and so to have a homemade version is a little bit dangerous because I want to eat the entire recipe! It’s got some versatility so you can add more of the things you love (like I did). I adapted the recipe from this one I used for my Big Hero 6 party and they are divine!

Homemade Almond Joy - Events To Celebrate

For some reason when it is spring I want anything with coconut in it. I have visions of dyed shredded coconut mimicking the grass in Easter desserts. These add three of my favorite things: almonds, chocolate and coconut. There’s not too far you can go wrong with that!

Step 1: 
Follow the recipe below and scoop 1-2 tablespoons at a time onto a Parchment Paper lined baking sheet. You can form them into whatever shape you want, but I “tried” to get them into the shape of an oval. If you’re really particular about it, you could pack them into a small cookie cutter. Allow to chill in the freezer for 45 minutes. You want them really firm and cold when you dip them. 

(side note: I add sliced almonds to the recipe because I like almond in every bite. If you want to be more authentic, you can omit them from the recipe and place a whole almond on top of each mound before you chill them)

Step 2:
Melt 1/2 cup of milk chocolate chips in the microwave, stirring every 20 seconds until fully melted. Dip the bottom of each coconut mound and return to the baking sheet. Chill in the freezer for an additional 30 minutes.

Step 3: 
Melt an additional 1/2 cup of chocolate chips  and dip the top half of the coconut mounds to cover the entire surface. Return to baking sheet and chill until you are ready to serve.

Disney Planes Party Favor

Disney Planes Party Favor - eventstocelebrate.net

Disney Planes Party Favors

The Disney movie Planes and Planes Fire & Rescue are so dang cute. When I got my cotton candy machine I knew the Blue Raspberry would be the perfect clouds for a Planes birthday party favor. When I was at the movie theater with my daughter (who was 3 at the time) to see Planes Fire & Rescue, about 20 minutes in she turned to me and with a puzzled look said, “Mom, there aren’t any princesses in this movie.” I laughed, she was so right, no princesses in that one, but super cute just the same!

You know I am a huge fan of free party printables on the internet. There are several really great websites out there that offer them – SO USE THEM! These Planes Bag Toppers were a free printable from Homeketeers. In fact, they come with a whole package of Planes themed free printables. It’s so easy to just download them and print them. 

I paired the pouf of blue cotton candy with a cute little airplane I made using a clothespin and Popsicle stick. I tried to get the paint to mimic Dusty Crophopper. This would also be a really fun party craft if you had kids that were at the age that they could handle painting without making a horrible mess. Just glue the pieces together ahead of time and let them paint them at the party!

To make the clothespin airplane:

– Paint a wood clothespin with white craft paint using a foam brush and allow to dry

– Paint the top surface of the clothespin and the entire Popsicle stick orange and allow to dry

– Paint a turquoise stripe on both sides at the top of the white on either side of the clothespin. 

– Using a serrated knife, cut the ends off of the Popsicle stick and glue it to the front of the plane. Use one of the cut off ends to glue upright on the back of the airplane.

Hot Air Balloon Baby Shower Decorations

Hot Air Balloon Baby Shower Decorations - eventstocelebrate.net


Are you planning a Hot Air Balloon baby shower with an “Up, Up and Away” theme? This is a fun and inexpensive decoration or centerpiece that your guests will love! I’ve been on a little kick with my new Cotton Candy machine and when I was making some the other day I saw a hot air balloon, so I turned it into one. 

Hot Air Balloon Baby Shower Decorations

Supplies:
Hot Air Balloon Base: Round Tin, Chinese Take-out Box, Small box or basket
Floral Foam
String or ribbon
Cotton Candy
Tissue Paper
Accent Ribbon

I started by wrapping some yellow paper around the base of a leftover Christmas tin (they always go on sale for like 4 for $1 after the holiday). Then I cut a cube of floral foam and fit that inside the tin (and added a few rocks to give the base some extra weight).Hot Air Balloon Baby Shower Decorations - eventstocelebrate.net

I added a piece of ribbon around the tin and tied it in a bow. Then I cut two squares of yellow tissue paper and used my scissors to puncture a hole in the top of them and through the floral foam. I then inserted my cotton candy. Lastly, I followed this tutorial on You Tube on how to make the netting to go around the cotton candy. Next time, I will use more strings for the netting and tie the knots closer together, but I still think it turned out pretty cute!

These can be made a day or two in advance which is always a bonus when planning a party! 

Pink and Gold Decorations: Girls Night

It’s been much too long since my last Girls Night and I was craving a fun night with my friends. I was elated to have our Girls Night sponsored by Collective Bias, Inc. and WalMart to feature the new DOVE® Fruit. #LoveDoveFruits #CollectiveBias I think as women the desire to socialize and connect with one another is inherent. I am lucky to be surrounded by really amazing women and was so excited to invite them all to my Girls Night! 

Girls Night Food:

Salad Bar Display - eventstocelebrate.net #LoveDoveFruits #ad

I have been working hard for the last 4 months to get back to my pre-baby body. But, those who know me well, and those who have seen any of my latest posts, know that sweets are just something that has to be balanced into my life. I can’t go without them. So, I’ve done all that I can to practice moderation and to make smart choices. In hosting the girls night, it was important to carry that balance through our fun night together as well. 

I think serving food/drinks/dessert at any event as a “build-your-own” bar is the best way to go. It is easy for the host, and you can please a lot of personal tastes that way. For dinner I served a salad bar with dinner rolls. I also served a soda bar and for dessert, I had a build-your-own party mix bar featuring the Cranberry DOVE® Fruit.

Salad Bar:

– Romaine Lettuce
– Spinach
– Grilled Chicken
– Blueberries
– Strawberries
– Dried Cranberries
– Feta Cheese
– Sliced Almonds
– Green Onions
– Poppyseed Dressing
– Cranberry Dressing

I’ll be sharing my recipes for the two salad dressings on my Instagram account, so be sure to follow me there! I got them both from a friend of mine that went to culinary school and they are DELICIOUS!

Soda Bar:

Dirty Diet Coke and Lime Rickey - eventstocelebrate.net #LoveDoveFruits #ad

– Soda options (mine included lemon-lime soda and 2 different cola’s)
– Syrup options (mine included coconut and cherry)
– Garnishments (mine included marachino cherries and lime wedges)

DIY Drink Stirrers - eventstocelebrate.net #LoveDoveFruits #ad


Now, you can’t have a drink with out something to stir it with. These super simple drink stirrers were one of my most favorite little details of the whole party. I just took a small piece of gold tissue paper, cut it into fringe leaving about 1/2″ uncut, ran a little bit of glue along the 1/2″ portion and rolled it around the end of a bamboo skewer. Super cute, right?!

DOVE® Fruit Party Mix:

DOVE® Fruits Party Mix Bar - evenstocelebrate.net #LoveDoveFruits #ad


 Here’s what I included:
– Plain Popcorn
– Cranberry DOVE® Fruit
– Pistachios
– Coconut
– Peanuts
– Pretzels

DOVE® Fruit Party Mix - eventstocelebrate.net #LoveDoveFruits #ad

Mmmm, let me just say, this was the perfect treat for the games we played. Each of us filled a cute popcorn cup with all the delicious options we wanted and it was so great to get a crunchy bite of this, a salty bite of that and a chewy bite of a Cranberry DOVE® Fruit. It really was the perfect flavor combination.

#LoveDoveFruits #Ad

Pink and Gold Decorations:

Let me take you through the simple, but really cute decorations I did for the party:

Pink and Gold Party Decorations - eventstocelebrate.net #LoveDoveFruits #ad

- Gold Striped Backdrop: I took a piece of white craft paper and painted the diagonal stripes using metallic gold paint.

- Tulle Pom Pom Garland: I took 5″ lengths of tulle and tied them in the middle and strung them with a piece of clear fishing line. The draped the backdrop and the food table.

- Food Signs: I didn’t just want the standard signs, so I used a fun font and used the delicious words: Nosh, Sip and Indulge to draw my guests to the table. 

- Popcorn Boxes: for the DOVE® Fruit Party Mix, I used my electronic cutting machine to cut out popcorn boxes and painted a diagonal gold stripe across the front.

- Food Labels: Using the same font as the food signs, I made individual labels for each item served and painted a gold stripe on the top and bottom edges to tie them into the party design. 

- Confetti: I cut gold tissue paper into confetti and accented the food table as well as the dining table with them. 

- Tissue Pom Poms: Made from gold tissue paper, I adorned the dining table with four small 1/2 pom poms. (shown below)

I love any excuse to put together a party favor. I painted gable boxes with the metallic gold paint stripes used throughout the party and filled them with things each of us need a little more of in our lives: chocolate and a chance to make our nails look pretty.

Hollywood Game Night Games:

One of my favorite shows is Hollywood Game Night, so I put the girls into teams of three and we played the following rounds:

Hollywood Game Night - eventstocelebrate.net #LoveDoveFruits#ad

Take The Hint: One player stands up at the front and the host shows a card to the other players on their team. Each player gets to say one word to describe the item on the card until the player at the front guesses it.  The timer is set for 90 seconds. The number they guess in that time is the number of points they get.

Written on cards were: ET, Paris, Diet Coke, Tiger, Disneyland, George Washington, McDonalds, Superman, Earthquake, Earrings, New York, Mickey Mouse, Cat, The Beatles, Pocahontas, Freezer, Tulips, Nutella, Thrift Store, Cinderella

How Do You Do?: Each team has 2 minutes to guess as many songs as possible. One player goes up and draws a song title from the bowl and can only use the word “do” to sing the tune. Once a teammate guesses the song they must perform the next one. You can pass on a song you don’t know. (this was by far the hardest round)

These are the songs we used: Pretty Woman, Stop In The Name of Love, Somewhere Over the Rainbow, Row, Row, Row your Boat, Single Ladies (Put a Ring on it), Stayin’ Alive, Let it Be, Wake Me Up Before You Go Go, YMCA, It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, Let It Go, Firework – Katy Perry, Empire State of Mind, Take Me Out To The Ballgame, You Are My Sunshine

Celebrity Name Game: One Player sits at the front. The other players take turns pulling a celebrity name out of a bowl. They describe the celebrity trying to get the player at the front to guess who it is. They can pass and the name goes back into the bowl.  90 seconds are on the clock.

Here are the celebrities we used: Clint Eastwood, Matt Damon, Johnny Depp, Charlie Sheen, Jenifer Aniston, Tom Hanks, Sally Fields, Will Farrell, Robert Downy Jr., Scarlett Johansen, Taylor Swift, Mike Tyson, Bruce Jenner, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Beyonce, Jimmy Fallon, Kieth Urban, Bruno Mars, Kanye West, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, Jenifer Lopez, Jim Bob Duggar, Jim Parsons, Idina Menzel, Anderson Cooper, Ina Garten, Mark Zuckerberg, Lady GaGa

Pass The Bowl: One player from each team comes to the front. A bowl is placed between them with Tom Hanks movie titles. The timer is set and one begins by drawing a paper and trying to get their team to guess the movie. Once ot has been guessed, the bowl is passed and the other player/team has a turn. A back-and-forth continues until the timer runs out. The team guessing when the timer runs out gets zero points.

Here are the movie titles we used: Big, You’ve Got Mail, Forest Gump, Captain Phillips, Saving Private Ryan, Cast Away, Saving Mr. Banks, The Green Mile, The DaVinci Code, The Terminal, Turner and Hooch, The Burbs

We had such a great time together! If you’re at Walmart looking for the DOVE® Fruit, you’ll find it in a display like this, not down the candy or snack aisle:

No Candy Easter Ideas: Easter Rewards Printable

No Candy Easter Ideas: Easter Rewards - eventstocelebrate.net

No Candy Easter Reward Printable

You can use this Easter Rewards printable to minimize or completely eliminate the candy during the egg hunt this Easter. My husband and I were talking over the weekend about how October kind of starts a “candy season” and it goes through Halloween, Christmas, Valentines Day and Easter. I’m tired of all the candy in our house and so I’ll be using these along with other fun toys from the dollar store (puzzles, jump rope, sidewalk chalk, bubbles, etc.) instead of candy for our Easter Egg Hunt this year. I know our kids will get plenty of candy at Grandma’s Easter Egg hunt, so they won’t feel the dent, but I’d much rather encourage active play and fun outdoors, than eating more candy. 

I hope you find them helpful too! You could print one set for your entire family and hide them with the other eggs, or print one set for each child and mark the eggs with the first letter of their name – or hide their eggs according to color (Susan finds all the yellow eggs, Steven finds all the green). 

If you’re looking for even more fun ways to shake up your Easter Egg Hunt, check out this post I did. It has lots of fun ways to switch things up and have a hunt your kids will remember!

M&M’s® Crispy Dessert Pizza

With my husbands birthday coming up I was delighted to develop a recipe for Collective Bias, Inc. and Walmart to celebrate him and the return of M&M’s® Crispy! #CrispyIsBack #CollectiveBiasM&M's® Crispy Dessert Pizza #CrispyIsBack #ad

My husband is a tough one when it comes to his birthday. If you’ve spent any time around this blog you know how much I love to throw a themed party, but that just isn’t his thing. Instead, all he wants is really good food. He’s not much of a cake person (don’t get me wrong, he’ll eat it, but he prefers other treats) so this year I was so excited to make him this decadent M&M’s® Crispy dessert pizza. It’s out of this world delicious. It takes a couple of steps, but they are WORTH IT! Trust me!M&M's® Crispy Dessert Pizza #CrispyIsBack #ad

The M&M’s® Crispy remind me of Jr. High, which is the last time I remember eating them. Lucky for all of us, they came back! What they add to this dessert is something you’ll really appreciate. You see, you’ve got the soft, chewy brownie, the silky frosting and smooth luxurious caramel. It needed a crunchy bite to add dimension – and load on even more chocolate. The crispy rice center really makes it a match made in heaven!

So, off to Walmart we went! And boy, was Lucy excited to help me load up!  They come in the larger bags too, but she really wanted a bunch of the smaller bags, so we went to town. These bags say they are the “shareable size” – I dont think so, I’ll take care of a bag on my own. And, since the M&M’s® Crispy only have 180 calories per serving, you may decide you get two slices of dessert!M&M's® Crispy Dessert Pizza #CrispyIsBack #ad

1- Bake the brownies. I used a spring form pan but a pizza pan would work great too.

2- Whip up that chocolate buttercream – you want it light and fluffy! Don’t be stingy when putting it on the brownie. Make sure you get lots of peaks and valleys too, that’s where the caramel can pool and it turns into a little caramel Jacuzzi for the bits of candy.

3- Drizzle on the caramel. Remember all those valleys you created in the frosting? Fill ‘em up! You may not use it all, and you may find yourself eating it with a spoon at midnight when you are up editing photos of the dessert pizza you put it on. :) Thank me later.

4- Top it with the candy. You can leave them whole, I decided to cut them in half with a serrated knife just to make sure everyone knew the crispy goodness they were about to partake of.

Big Hero 6 Birthday Party

This Big Hero 6 Birthday Party was a blast to put together for my nephew! What made it even better was to have it sponsored by Collective Bias, Inc. and Walmart!

Big Hero 6 Birthday Party - eventstocelebrate.net #BigHero6Release #ad

 Big Hero 6 really captured my heart. The movie is funny, sweet, emotional and exciting all packaged up! I was really excited to nab the Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital HD copy (on Vudu – just scan your Walmart reciept using the Savings Catcher app and you’ll be sent a code) because it also came with a Bonus DVD with behind the scenes footage of the science behind the cool stuff in the movie (It’s real stuff, not just made up? Whodathunk?!). That means we have a copy for the car, the house and even one to download onto our digital devices. Big Hero 6 Birthday Party - eventstocelebrate.net #BigHero6Release #ad

 BIG HERO 6 PARTY ACTIVITIES

Knowing I was entertaining six tween boys, I tried to come up with activities they would enjoy. What tween boy doesn’t want to spray paint (responsibly)? And, ironing may not be for the younger kids, but it they were the perfect age to try it out! I got the T-Shirts, Frisbee’s and the plush Baymax all on Walmart.com (where you can get lots of cute Big Hero 6 toys). 

Big Hero 6 Birthday Party - eventstocelebrate.net #BigHero6Release #ad

DIY BAYMAX T-SHIRTS

I followed this fabric applique tutorial I’ve posted about, and just left the last step of ironing on the applique onto the t-shirts for the boys. I got their sizes from their mom’s ahead of time and they were only like $3.50 per shirt!

GO-GO’S FLYING MAG-LEV DISCS 

To mimic the magnetic levitation discs Go-Go uses in the movie we spray painted Frisbee’s yellow (you have to get the kind of spray paint that adheres to plastic) and once they had dried a little we added a red dot in the center with red craft paint. By the time the movie was over they were dry and the boys went outside and played Frisbee with them. Ironically, some of the boy’s last name is Frisby and they were joking the whole time that the Frisby’s were painting Frisbee’s. 

HOT POTATO – BAYMAX STYLE

The plush Baymax I got is really cute, he says different phrases from the movie (coincidentally, my daughter had to have him sleep in her bed with her last night with all of her other stuffed toys – I think she’s in love with that little personal care consultant). We had the boys sit in a circle and picked a category – like Super Hero’s. They had to toss the Baymax to another player and that person would have to quickly shout a Super Hero and toss it. If they hesitated or repeated one, they were out!

BIG HERO 6 DECORATIONS

Big Hero 6 Birthday Party - eventstocelebrate.net #BigHero6Release #ad

Baymax Backdrop

I used a red and a white plastic table cover and some spray adhesive to create the big Baymax Backdrop. It was $2 and really made an impact on the party space. I just cut the Baymax head, body and arms out separately and then used my spray adhesive to adhere him to the red table cover. 

Big Hero 6 Garlands

I made a garland for each of the supporting characters in the movie. I used my electronic cutting machine to cut out the yellow and red discs for Go-Go, Plasma Swords for Wasabi and Fire/Flames for Fred. I added glitter craft paint on all of them to add some dimension and sparkle. Then I painted 1 1/2″ styrofoam balls with craft paint to make Chem Balls for Honey Lemon. I used hot glue to adhere them to embroidery floss and hung them from the food table.

Big Hero 6 Decorations - eventstocelebrate.net #BigHero6Release #ad

Baymax Balloons

This is about as easy as party decorations get. I just used a black marker to draw a Baymax face on the white balloons. I taped them to the archway leading into the party space and put them down the center of the table where the boys ate dinner.

 BIG HERO 6 FOOD

Big Hero 6 Birthday Party - eventstocelebrate.net #BigHero6Release #ad

If you’ve been around my blog, you know how much I love themed party food! It’s probably my favorite thing about parties. I did a different food/treat for each character and created really cute food labels for each one. I’ve even got them as a FREE PRINTABLE for you down at the bottom. 

Hiro’s Hero Sandwiches: Hero Sandwiches from a local sandwich shop.

Honey Lemon’s Coconut Chem Balls: These were really delicious. Just melt 4 TBSP of butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Once it’s melted turn off the heat and add 1/4 c. milk and 1 tsp. of Vanilla extract. Stir it all up and add 2 cups of Confectioners Sugar in 1/2 cup increments stirring each time until smooth (this is where I added the food coloring). Then add in 3 cups of shredded sweetened coconut, mix it to combine and scoop them onto a parchment lined baking sheet and cool. I put mine in the refrigerator to help them set up. 

Fred’s Flamin’ Hot Candy: Hot Tamales, Red Hots & Atomic Fire Balls

Wasabi’s Chocolate Dreds: Tootsie Rolls

Baymax Mallow Pops: The giant marshmallows with some black frosting piped on them for Baymax’s face.

Go-Go Tomago’s Mag-Lev Disc Cookies: I used a Lemon flavored cake mix and added 2 eggs and 6 TBSP melted butter. I stirred it all together, scooped onto a cookie sheet and baked at 375 for 8-10 minutes. Then I added 1/2 of a maraschino cherry for the red center. 

Baymax popcorn: I used my electronic cutting device to cut out white popcorn boxes and the pieces to make a Baymax face on them – simple and so perfect for watching the movie!

Baymax Drinks: I purchased white cups and used a black marker to add the face. They were deliciously filled with Black Cherry hydration.

Doc McStuffins Party Favors

Doc McStuffins Party Favors - free printables - eventstocelebrate.net 

These Doc McStuffins Party Favors combine my love of FREE PRINTABLES and my love of COTTON CANDY! It doesn’t get better than that for me! 

My daughter LOVES Doc McStuffins. She was Doc Mcstuffins for Halloween, she gives anyone who will hold still a check up using her Doc Mcstuffins Doctor’s Bag , she was ELATED when she got the Doc McStuffins Walk ‘N Talk Doll for Christmas, she has a Doc McStuffins Bath Towel and this year she wants (you guessed it) a Doc McStuffins Birthday Party! 

Doc McStuffins Party Favors - free printables - eventstocelebrate.net

I stumbled on this website not long ago and it was kind of love at first sight for me. Free Printables everywhere I clicked. How could I not use them and share the site with you? 

For the EXTRA STUFFY STUFFING and EXTRA LAMBIE STUFFING I just put some cotton candy in a clear treat bag and stapled on the topper. For the DOC MCSTUFFINS COTTON BALLS - I pulled off pieces of cotton candy and rolled them gently between my two hands. Ideally, I would use a light color cotton candy for them, like the pineapple flavor – but I wanted them to show up in the photo. 

Doc McStuffins Party Favors - free printables - eventstocelebrate.net

The bag toppers are actually designed to be water bottle labels, but I just trimmed them to fit as a Doc McStuffins Bag Topper. So, even though my daughters birthday is still months away, I’ve already started planning it and I can bet that you’ll see these favors at her party! Now, head on over and get your own free printables (water bottle labels, kiss stickers, invites and cupcake toppers).    Doc McStuffins Party Favors - free printables - eventstocelebrate.net

Now I just need to figure out how to get better handwriting between now and my daughters party – at least you get the idea…:)
