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

I love to use interesting containers, vases and bowls to use in my table displays. For our Hippity Hoppin' Easter Party, I used egg cups to hold mini fruit tarts and layered a glass vase with sixlettes and chocolate covered pretzel sticks coming out. I also created a lollipop patch using peeps on lollipop sticks and chocolate covered oreos. I covered a floral Styrofoam in moss on the top and wrapped the sides with burlap. A few edible daisies were spread around the bottom to create a little edible flower garden. The kids loved eating up the garden!

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

One of our most pinned DIY projects is our tissue paper wreath. It is simple and easy to make. I love that this wreath can be made for a party and then used for decoration in the child's room later!

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

I love anything that is easy and healthy to snack on for the kids that you can have fun with! From fruit skewers (on lollipop sticks for a rainbow party), gold fishes (for a fishing party) or even animal crackers for a circus party. You can dress them up in cute snack bags, treat cups or popcorn cones. Put them in something creative and display on a table low enough for little hands to get too.
Some great examples of displaying snack foods at a party can be seen here:
