Here's a neat little way to customize your glasses with pretty paper. I like this idea because it allows you to use any shape, color you want to complement the rest of your decor. A slight slit in the marker lets you put them on and off. Think about bookmarking this idea for the 4th of July! Find the original post at Craft and Creativity. (They even provide a star template.)

When I saw this on I'm Topsy Turvy--I couldn't believe I hadn't seen this done more often! How fun does this sprinkle covered cake look? I will be sure to use this idea. This is so much simpler than attempting to do some fancy moves with icing on a cake. For application tips, visit the original post here.

This garden themed baby shower is as vibrant as the featured mommy-to-be! I love the color pallette with pops of lemon yellow and aqua. Those beautiful eyelet placemats remind me of something my mom used to own. They give each setting a handmade feel.
This shower also provides great inspiration for Mother's Day, bridal shower or an intimate birthday party. Enjoy this beautiful showcase. (You'll find additional vendor resources at the end of the post.)

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Triad Retail Media. All opinions are 100% mine.
I get a lot of offers to advertise or review different products on Home Confetti. Up until now I haven’t taken any of the offers–mainly because I don’t want to feature something that isn’t relevant to the blog or I don’t think is something you’d be interested in. (You’re not going to see me write about car insurance here!) But I think you'll love this. Here are two great new products from Glade® that I’m going to check out and you might want to, too.
Glade®Expressions™ has introduced two new products, a Fragrance Mist and an Oil Diffuser. Available at Walmart, BOTH products offer long-lasting, true-to-life fragrance that will give your home a welcoming scent.
The smart, sleek design of the new Glade® Expressions™ fragrance mist will blend into any home décor. Its squeeze-to-spray activation is comfortable and easy to use. Refill it with one of the four available Glade® Expressions™ fragrances. My favorite is the Cotton and Italian Mandarin–a clean and subtle fragrance that invites life in.
The new Glade® Expressions™ oil diffuser offers a fragrance that lasts up to 30 days and doesn’t require electricity. The no-spill design will complement any décor in your home. The yummy fragrance scent options are the same as the Fragrance Mist.
And Get this!
Satisfaction Guaranteed: Glade® is so confident in their products, they are offering fragrance satisfaction guaranteed or your money back on both products. Just mail the original UPC, purchase receipt and this completed form found here within 30 days.

Last night I hosted a beauty/spa night for the MOMS Club I belong to. So fun! I gave a little preview earlier in the day on Twitter and Facebook with this photo of cheesecake cups I made. And I quickly got a couple of tweets asking what they were/how they were made. So, I want to share the OH SO EASY recipe. In fact, it's a Kraft recipe.
All you need is:
1 package (8 oz.) of Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup of sugar
1 tub (8oz.) of COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed
I used small broken pieces of Honey Graham Cinnamon Crackers - but the original recipe used Oreo cookies
Beat cream cheese and sugar until well blended. Then, gently stir in whipped topping.
Line bottom of glasses with pieces of honey graham cookies. Spoon cream cheese mixture into cups/glasses. Top with graham cracker crumbs.
Now, depending on the size of your cup, you may want to add a layer of the graham cracker crumbs in the middle too, which is traditionally more of a parfait. YUM!
I'll post photos of the evening next week! Have a great weekend!!

I've seen paper lanterns made into bunnies, jack o'lanterns and other fun things, but I have to say this one made me smile. I love the colors. Perfect for a kid's room and owl-themed party. Found via Dollar Store Crafts here.

3 Drops Vitamin Oil (I bought mine at Hobby Lobby for $3.99)
3 drops Almond Oil (I bought mine at Hobby Lobby for $5.99)
1/8 tspn Honey
Small mixing spoon and small mixing bowl
Lip Gloss Container - I couldn't find actual lip gloss containers, but I found these paint pots at Hobby Lobby that will do the trick!
All you need to do is combine all the ingredients. It will look like this:
Then spoon into one of the little pots and use when you need a little shine or moisturizing. That's it! Here is what my finished pot of gloss looks like.
