Quick and Easy Christmas Decorating Ideas




Simply Stylish

Make some simple and stylish Christmas decorations with things that you probably already have on hand!

They're very pretty...and VERY easy on the wallet. A perfect combination!
These are some creations I came up with just by using some extra Christmas ornaments, some tealight candles, some greenery and berries from the backyard, some ribbon, and some fresh cranberries.

Visit the Christmas decorating ideas page for more pics and instructions.

Zebra Print 13th Birthday Cake

Zebra Print 13th Birthday Cake: Got a "girly" teenager? This is the perfect cake idea for her!
I made a cake similar to this for my daughter on her birthday and the idea caught on like wildfire!
This is just two 9-inch rounds topped with a cupcake, then decorated with buttercream. The ribbon gives it a fun touch, and the topper is just scrapbook paper with number stickers. To see the two-tier zebra print cake I made my daughter, click here.
This birthday girl requested strawberry cake, which actually turned out really cool because the cake was pink inside. Fun!

Spooky Mood Lighting



Stylish and spooky all at the same time! I saw the idea for these somewhere on the internet and immediately fell in love! The best part? They are soooo easy and inexpensive to make. I found everything to make these at the local dollar store (even the cute little placemat) and had
them put together in minutes. Ooops, wait...I actually got the ribbon at Michaels...but other than that...completely dollar store. :)

Instructions for how to make them are on the Halloween decorating ideas page. Give them a try...you're going to love them!

Teen Halloween Costume Ideas

My teens are too old to go trick-or-treating, but they have a blast getting dressed up to scare the trick-or-treaters that come to our house!

This is my son and his buddy dressed up as mummies last year.

They sat veerrry still on our porch with their eyes closed, and when the kids got really close and tried to reach in the candy bowls for their goodies, the boys would move and scare them.

It was sooo much fun for everyone!

We had people coming back again and again just to find out if the mummies were real or pretend!

This year we're throwing a teen Halloween party, so who knows what type of costumes we'll see.

If you're in the market for a costume for your teen, check out our Teen Halloween Costumes page for some fun ideas.

Happy Haunting!

Teen Halloween Party Ideas

Looking for some fun ideas to keep your teens safe and happy this Halloween?

Teens aren't always the easiest to please, but with four teens living in my house, I'm learning quickly what's cool and not cool! :)

A Halloween party is cool. A Halloween party with the parents hanging around is not.

Our Teen Halloween Party page is full of ideas that will make you and your teens happy...even if just for a little while! :)

Be sure to check it out.

Boo-tiful Ghost Cookies

Aren't these spooky little treats just adorable?!! They can be whipped up in minutes...literally...and can be used in so many ways!

When you make them into cookie bouquets like the one above, they can be used as centerpieces for the table or as gifts for your neighbors.

When you tuck them into scrapbook paper "pockets" they become fantastically frightful favors.

For full instructions on how to make these tasty treats, visit our Halloween desserts page.

Twilight Lunch Napkins (16)
Teens and tweens across the nation are counting down the days until November 20th...the release of New Moon!
Celebrate the big premiere with a Twilight (New Moon) party! CelebrateExpress.com just released their New Moon party line which the kids are going to go nuts over!
They've got complete party kits for sale that include all of the paper goods you'll need, and they even have....drumroll please...an
"Edward" life-size stand-up

My 13-year-old daughter will be chomping at the bit for me to get this stuff. My feeling is, if we want it we'd better hurry...I bet this party line is going to sell out fast!

Delicious Satay Recipe

Flavor explosion! That's the best way to describe the yummy sensation you get when eating this appetizer! My sister-in-law made this for a get-together we had recently and these "Steak-on-a-Stick" treats disappeared like magic.

The meat was incredibly tender and full of flavor. Sooo tasty! You could really use any kind of meat and your favorite marinade and get the same great results. Definitely worth trying for your next party! Get the recipe here.

Fall Party Favors

Aren't these little "Pumpkin Patch" Gourmet Brownie Pops from MyWeddingFavors.com just the cutest little things?

The way they've got them displayed, they'd be great to use as party decorations before handing them out to your guests at the end of the night! They'd also make the perfect bite-size party snack!
