What's the most creative dessert idea you've come up with for a party? Please share a link if you have one.

I don't know if this is the most creative idea I've come up with but it sure was fun to make and the kids and adults loved it. Fruity Smoothies with Googly Eyeballs? All you do is make your favorite smoothies then whip up a batch of meringue to make into eyeball shapes, insert chocolate chips for eyes, an cook on a wooden stick.

What's a cool DIY project you would recommend for party decorations?

There are so many, but, a large cake is a great idea. Usually there are so many sweets at a party already so I like to use a pretend cake as a centerpiece which serves as a great decoration as well. For example, in my SWEET ON YOU valentine party I covered 2 styrafoam circles with craft paper and stacked them. Then decorated it with rock candy and meringue cookies for the frosting. I also pushed in my chocolate lip suckers which was a perfect way to display them. There you have a showstopping decoration and table centerpiece in one.

What are some of your favorite kid-friendly party snacks that are healthy too?

Again there are many and people usually think of a food but how about a drink? Us parents are always trying to get a little more healthy snacks into our kids and a favorite in our house is smoothies. There are so many varieties you can make and with a cute straw, bow and special glass, they make it a lot more fun to drink. A Strawberry or Blueberry smoothie are great ones.To see this cute idea go to:
