Party Preparations

One great thing about our new, larger house is the ability to actually have guests over. We already held the small family party for Jellybean's birthday, but this Saturday, I'm excited to host a real two year old birthday party and invite some of her little friends.
In preparation, I've been putting together a few things for the party.  Today I put together the gift bags and experimented with some chocolate cupcake toppers. 
The party is musically themed, so I drew a simple note on each bag
 and filled them with some musical goodies.
I decided that the cupcakes were going to need some musical notes as well. I experimented with free-handing some notes and treble clefs.
Sure, they say they are microwavable, but I prefer the old fashion method.
Make-shift double boiler
Mmmm, melted chocolate goodness
Melted chocolate ready for piping
Free-handed chocolate notes and clefs
chillin' in the fridge
The glue sticks were also chillin' in the fridge.  That's where I keep mine. Is that normal?
 I think these are going to be adorable on the top of each cupcake. Yum.

Tomorrow's task? Baking the cupcakes!

I've been a bit remiss in my posting this week.  Between party planning, discovery of a food allergy and about 20 hours spent watching Korean dramedies, there really hasn't been much time to blog.  I promise a future post on at least two of those excuses. 

Have a Happy Day!
