How cute are these milk jugs?! Fill the jug with milk, then use one straw from the pack to poke a hole through all the donuts. Place the donut on top of the jug, then use a clean straw through the donut hole.

As much as we would like to only eat donuts, sometimes it's nice to have a little variety. We filled these popcorn boxes with marshmallow cream coated popcorn and topped it with yummy sprinkles.

Like we said, you need a variety of food, but it can still be donut shaped! We filled up our baking cups with cereal - perfect for 3 year old's to snack on!

Simple DIY Confetti Coffee Sleeve

We are always looking for new ways to use our party pretties.  I decided to play around with our confetti and came up with a quick and easy way to add a little fancy to our paper cups.  It is so simple and looks adorable!

Turn paper cup into a fancy party cup!

You will need:

*Clear packaging tape

*Scissors

*Fancy That paper cup-we have a ton of paper cups that work like a charm

*Fancy That confetti- grab a bag or two or three. There are so many pretty colors!

Sprinkle confetti on the surface of your choice (a cutting board works particularly well).  To measure tape, wrap a piece around the cup, adhesive side out, then cut the tape to fit your cup.

NOTE: In order for the tape to fit flat and snug around the cylindrical shape of the cup the tape will overlap and become uneven. This is ok because it allows the confetti to look like it is climbing up the side of the cup.  So wrap up the tape tight even if it is uneven.

Slide tape off cup and roll in sprinkled confetti. Shake off the excess and slide back around cup. Pat confetti tight to the tape so there isn’t any sticky tape left uncovered. Now stand back and admire your handy work.

Voila! You have a simple and darling DIY Confetti Coffee Sleeve.

You don’t have to limit your sleeve to just cups!  Katie filled our clear tubes with cotton candy to make a cute party favor.  The sleeve works on square items too.  You can use the same technique to jazz up our 4×4 colored boxes. The possibilities are endless!

Here is the skinny creating a honeycomb strawberries.

To make the strawberry heart:

* Materials: honeycomb tissue heart, glue gun, card stock for the leaves, scissors

Step 1: Cut out 4 long leaves with the paper.

Step 2: Pinch one end and glue each into the crevices of the heart.

Step 3: Cut a long thin piece of card stock roll it into a cylinder. Make sure it’s tight so that it holds its shape. Glue along the edge of the roll and squeeze together.

Step 5: Flatten the stem at one end and glue  the “stem” into the center of the tissue heart.

Done! We are bananas about these strawberries.

DIY Spice Organization

Oh spices, you make my food taste so good but I hate having to search through the millions of  you to find the one I want! Okay, so maybe not millions, but I do have a lot of spices (sure most of them are expired but they’re probably still ok, right?).  Anyway, all this searching made me tired and I realized that I needed to get these things organized! At Fancy That we have these great little metal window tins that are perfect for holding spices! So I got a bunch of them, some fun washi tape, and a couple magnetic strips and got to work!

DIY Spice Containers
I chose this gold glitter washi tape from the shop that I LOVE. We also have chalk tape that would work great too!

So, first install your magnetic strips to a wall or the inside of a cabinet door. You can find these strips at your nearest Swedish home goods store. Pour your spices in the metal tins, then tear a piece of washi tape off and apply it to the top of the tin. Write the name of the spice and maybe the expiration date (if you care about things like that) and then stick it to the metal strip. Bam! Your done and totally organized!

What’s your spice organization method?  I want to know!

Happy organizing!

Beer Tasting Party

Throw a Beer Tasting Party!

National Beer Day is April 7th and we want to celebrate! What better way, then to throw back a few and host your very own beer tasting party.

At Fancy That, we love the idea of gathering your closest friends to spend the evening sipping suds, all while making a game of it! We’ve pulled together an entire board full of fun beer tasting party ideas. Complete with themes, color schemes, printables and party snacks! Click here to check it out on Pinterest.

Want to add a little flair to your party? We’ve created a fun beer label for you to use! Just download our free printable and affix them around your beer bottles. Too cute! An easy way to make your party look professional and perfectly polished.  Free printable beer labels

Here are a few simple steps on how to throw a beer party of your very own:

Step 1: Ask guests to bring over a beer of their choosing. It can be light, dark, amber, lager, anything! It’s dealer’s choice. Make sure they bring it chilled and concealed so other guests aren’t able to see it.

Step 2: When your guests arrive, place their beer in a cute paper bag and tie bakers twine around the top to conceal what’s inside. Make sure only the top of the bottle is sticking out for easy pouring. You could also use our printable beer labels instead to keep each beer type a mystery.

Step 3: Using chalkboard tags or stickers, assign each beer a number and affix a tag to the outside of the corresponding bag. Make sure to keep a hidden master list of what each numbered beer actually is.

Step 4: Hand out a pre-printed beer tasting sheet, pencil and a glass to each guest and let the games begin! Encourage guests to sip, savor and snack. All while writing down their guesses and critique of each numbered beer. Prizes could be awarded for the crowd favorite or for the ultimate beer taster!

Doesn’t this sound fun? Don’t forget to make a list of your party’s top 10 beers and send them out to your guests the next day. A great way to say thanks for coming and helpful the next time they hit the beer aisle.

 

Cheers to beers!

Spring Hostess Gift

I was invited to a spring tea and wanted to bring a really unique hostess gift.   Is there any combination better than yummy scones with organic strawberry spread?  I think not! That’s why this hostess gift will be a complete hit.  We created a cute wrap for the scone box to coordinate with the floral napkins.  Add a flower bouquet that never wilts and a fun flag to our clever drink carrier and let the oohing and aahing begin.  You can buy this fun gift in the shop or online!
