I used these bamboo fork, spoons and knives for my recent Breakfast Birthday Party. Not only are they eco-friendly, but they are so much cuter than plastic and easier to match to any color scheme. Also, I haven't tried it yet, but have seen other DIYer's pictures, these can be fancied up by stamping the handles with "happy birthday" or "celebrate" or use felt markers to draw on stripes, polka dots, etc.
Food Flags and Party Picks
These darling pink food flags are included in my Vintage Fawn Party Kit. Stick them in pieces of cut fruit, mini cakes or pies or cubes of cheese for a finger-friendly food buffet.
Well if you haven't seen the cupcake over cake trend, you probably haven't been to many parties lately. Dress up those individual dessert servings with a themed cupcake topper like these ones. These sweet strawberry toppers are available for purchase in the a la carte section of my Etsy store.
Push Up Pop Containers

I recently had the honor of meeting the author of the book Push Up Pops, Courtney Dial Whitmore, at a book signing here in Colorado. Her book is filled with delicious recipes and ideas for utilizing these popular push up pop containers for your party. Remember those cardboard, ice cream filled push ups that you used to get from the local ice cream truck? Well these re-usable containers can be filled with cake ingredients, pie fillings, candy, there are even recipes for cocktail slushies just for grown ups! You can purchase Courtney's fabulous book here.
