Bird’s back! I’m honored to be a part of the Winter issue of Bird’s Party Magazine. This issue, like every other, if full of sweet party awesomeness. You’ll find ideas for a Winter Wonderland, parties from Hollywood to penguin glam, a sparkly New Year’s, a whimsical Christmas brunch. Birthday parties for dinosaurs, snow fairies, gangsters, lumberjacks and moose, a clever juice and cheese tasting party. And there are plenty of handmade holiday ideas, including edible placecards and decor that kids can make. CLICK BELOW TO VIEW THE ISSUE:
Wanna see what I made? Gingerbread swizzle sticks for hot cocoa. And those cute tags attached? The Cocoa and Marshmallows Party printables are available from Bird’s shop. I just used my yummy gingerbread cut-out cookie dough (I added this recipe to my cookie recipe page HERE) to make sticks with holes, baked them, dipped them in chocolate and sprinkled crushed candy canes and marshmallow bits on top. Then I threaded the holes with ribbon and attached little tags. The perfect dip-in-cocoa treat.
Find the how-tos to make the gingerbread swizzle sticks HERE on p.94.
