Delicious Lemon Cranberry Scones

Oh, don't these look so good? Let me tell you..they are! 
Please don't ask how many I ate before, during and after the photoshoot! ha I'd be embarrassed to tell you. As you know, I was introduced to Essential Oils awhile back and LOVE them for several different reasons. One of my favorite reasons is I am learning how to bake with them and I am so excited with how my recipes are turning out and I love sharing them with you! I used my favorite long time recipe, and added 3 drops of lemon essential oil. Believe me this recipe is so good without the lemon oil, but once you try it with lemon oil you will not be disappointed! This time around we used dried cranberries because I had those on hand. 

I think these will be a great addition to any breakfast party you are hosting or adding them to your Mother's Day brunch! They are so light and full of flavor, your guests will love them and ask you for the recipe. 

You can find out more about ordering your own Essential Oils here and feel free to ask me questions if you have them! 

Happy Friday Friends!!

Lavender and Blueberry Ice Cream

Mother’s Day is coming soon and that means it’s time to celebrate all of the fantastic mothers in your life! I’m excited to team up with a few friends to bring you some amazing DIY Mother’s Day Gift Ideas, along with a fun giveaway you’re going to love!!

DIY Homemade Mother's Day Gift Ideas! Essential Oils Recipes and Crafts with Free Printables.
A homemade gift is a perfect way to show someone how much you appreciate them. I love using essential oils around my home to help with various health issues, as well as enjoying a sweet smelling home, but I’m also addicted to making all kinds of goodies with my oils!
Today, I hope you enjoy my recipe for Lavender and Blueberry Ice Cream! 

As it warms up here in Dallas, my mind starts to think of refreshing desserts to make and serve my family. I made this wonderful Lavender and Blueberry Ice Cream! Sure I could use my ice cream maker or simply purchase ice cream from my favorite grocery store, but what fun would that be? 
With only 5 ingredients this is very simple and extremely delicious!  

8 oz. Heavy Cream
14 oz. Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 Cup Fresh Blueberries
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Lavender Oil

In a mixer whether it be a hand or standing one, whip the cream until it is thick add the vanilla and mix in the sweetened condensed milk and blueberries. Once all ingredients are mixed well add 2 to 3 drops of Lavender Essential Oil. You can add more or less of the oil {to your preference} be careful not to add to much as the ice cream will become bitter. Pour ice cream into a container, we used a loaf pan lined with plastic wrap, place in the freezer for 8 hours or over night to set.

Baseball Party Ideas

I had my prop guy {AKA my hubby} create this baseball diamond for the dessert table
. He used astro turf and duct tape to turn a simple table into a baseball diamond. We left the peanuts in their shells and brought in baseball equipment like gloves and balls for decoration. The little sluggers snacked on hot dogs, cotton candy and Cracker Jacks. We also had candy waxed bottles, pinstriped cups for the cupcakes, baseball shaped cookies, a baseball field cake and ice cream sundaes served in mini baseball helmets on a dessert table. Of course, no baseball party is complete without mini bottle of Coca-Cola! 
There were no strike outs with this party!

Here Comes Peter Cottontail, Hoping Down the Bunny la la la

Sing it with me........
With Easter less than a week away, we created fun FREE Easter Bunny Footprints just for you, our BellaGrey Designs friends! We love to keep the imagination flowing at our house with bunny footprints all over! The kids get so excited to see that the Easter Bunny has come when we get home from Mass.

Here is the stencil with the paw pads cut out. We used baking soda to sprinkle over our stencil, but you can use any type of powder, flour or even baby powder! 

We removed the stencil and this is what is left behind! We went a little heavy on the baking soda so you can really see the image!  

This is what both the large and small footprints look like once you have sprinkled powder over them! You can create the ones with or without the outlines. Whichever you prefer. We showed you both!

Have a Great Day!

Easter Brunch Entertaining + New Party Suite Design

Please note: I received products from Oriental Trading free of charge for me to review and show in use. No other type of compensation was received for this review. This review is based strictly on my honest opinion. I only endorse products that I love and use personally.

Over the last few years we have created something new for Easter, more in the form of a party or dessert/candy table. This year we decided to style this Easter Brunch Entertaining Tablescape. As I write this post, it reminds me of just how much my styling has changed over the years. This table is a reflection of who I am and I love this tablescape so much as it remains on my table today - long after the photo shoot has been completed. 

I like how the table is set so beautifully and inviting as it awaits our guests. 

Each place setting was set with silver rimmed white plates and a silver charger beneath it. Instead of using place cards we had these cloth bags created for each of our guests with their names. We carried the silhouette bunny image throughout the tablescape and dessert table to make them uniform. 

Small touches of sweet items were spread out over the table as each guest received not only a cupcake but glimmer gumballs in an egg holder, as well as a macaron wrapped like a small gift! We even placed a few colorful rock candy sticks in our color scheme in beautiful mini glass jars. 

The colors of our Easter Brunch Tablescape are so light and fresh it says, "Spring is here!" 
You can easily recreate this table for your own Easter Brunch, an afternoon tea or lunch with friends. Use smaller vases of flowers and place your food on the burlap table runner adding small traditional Easter items such as bunnies. painted eggs, small twig birds nests with moss covered rocks, lends itself to nature and representing Spring. Colorful tulle pom poms were added to each wine glass for added fun. 

We enjoyed styling a coordinating dessert buffet to match our Easter Brunch to satisfy your sweet tooth! 

Keeping with the simplicity of the tablescape we created a very simple dessert table with a glitter bunny banner, we cut out with our Cricut Explore, in the coordinating theme and colors. 

Our Easter Burlap and Turquoise Brunch Party Suite includes:

Invitation {in either grey or black print}
Place Cards {Silver and Turquoise glitter ribbon}
Favor Tags
Bunny Banner
