Loopy Paper Garland

by Kathleen Ballos

I don’t think there will ever be a shortage of garlands to make for parties! When making the vintage-inspired springy paper garland and paper net garland, I had some scraps leftover and came up with this. Wouldn’t it be fun to make this garland in rainbow colors?

A Craft Party

Crafting and making has always been one of my favorite things to do, and it is even better when you do it with friends.  Throw an easy craft party, with festive headbands for everyone to wear, refreshments, and a good stash of craft supplies to get the creativity flowing!

Grilled Cheese Party

Cheese please!! When Président Cheese approached me about reinventing a classic cheese dish for their new digital showcase “Art of Cheese“, I jumped at the chance to host a Grilled Cheese party. I’ve been wanting to plan a party like this for a while, so it was fun to actually make it happen. My friend Andrea came up with 4 easy grilled cheese recipes that we served to our guests. But, it would also be fun to mix and match the toppings and cheeses and get creative with the recipes! For more fun recipes and entertaining ideas, make sure you check out the Art of Cheese website. Right now they’re hosting a special Pinterest Sweepstakes where you could win $50 worth of their cheese varieties. What’s your favorite kind of grilled cheese sandwich?

Jelly Bean Garland

by Kathleen Ballos

Don’t you love the candy selection around Easter time? So colorful and spring-like, I want to buy (and eat!) it all. Conveniently, National Jelly Bean Day is April 22, so it’s a great time to stock up on your favorite jelly beans. I think it would be so much fun to have a jelly bean tasting party, especially with all the gourmet flavors available these days. Make this jelly bean garland to celebrate – you can even hand out the triangles as party favors once the day is over! (PS – Put any extra jelly beans in these fun Easter boxes!)
