It’s not quite officially summer – but it is FINALLY starting to feel that way (at least in our neck of the woods) and the sunshine is much needed! The sunshine has us thinking about summer birthdays…pool parties, bbq’s, picnics, spending time with family and friends and of course, celebrating the Fancy way with fabulous treats and colorful decorations. We’ve partnered once again with our good friend ArtGirl TM who is creating handmade sets of six sugar cookies shaped like candles and shipping them in a cute gift container. These colorful cookies measure approximately 4″ tall, are made with all natural ingredients and are NOW available on our website. Perfect when your your in a pinch and looking for a pop of color for a party. They are almost too cute to eat…almost! We love the idea of popping them in a batch of cupcakes decked out in colorful baking cups to match! We love ArtGirl and her fun website…check it our for decorating inspiration! Iif your up for an afternoon project – try your hand at making candle shaped cookies at home with our Candle Cookie Cutter, No Fail Sugar Cookie Recipe and a batch of royal icing. YUM!
These vintage-inspired papers will freshen up the look of traditional doilies. We love the cake serving papers that come in 6″, 8″ and 12″ round sizes perfect for placing on dessert plates (as shown above), under birthday cakes or for larger presentations of sweet treats!
The paper place mats are perfect for sprucing up a BBQ’s, picnic or other informal gathering. The Reversible Cutlery Place Matscome as a set of 25 and are printed on thick and durable heavy craft board (100% recycled!). The charming fork, knife and spoon design is a great way to keep your table looking classy.
