The Chirping Moms: Pinterest Night

May 28, 2012

Pinterest Night

Last week we had another Pinterest Night! It was a big success. We made the flip flops I had blogged about. Last minute I had an idea to try substituting wide grosgrain ribbon instead of fabric & loved the results!
We also made patriotic wreaths with yarn. They came out really cute, but I never realized how long "yarn crafts" can take. All of the ladies ended up having to finish this one at home. I actually just finished mine this morning so I could hang it for Memorial Day.
Our last project of the night was cake decorating. Our friend Mary is a pro & taught us all some basic skills to make cakes. No more ordering birthday cakes for my kids! We all made a cake to practice & Maggie was pretty excited in the morning to see a cake with her name on it. After talking to some of my guests it was good to find out I was not the only mom that let their kid eat the cake for breakfast!

I made a few recipes I had found on Pinterest. The cheescake stuffed strawberries were my favorite!
