Girl's wreath making party.

Hosting a girls night in is always more fun when you add in crafts! Taking cues from the budding flowers of spring, I hosted a little Easter wreath-making event. The evening was a fun combination of crafts, great food pairings and a couple sweet spring surprises, like floral wrapped straws. It was an awesome gathering to get us all in the springy Easter mood.

Each guest got a favor box filled with everything needed to craft an Easter wreath. We used a combination of ribbons, floral wire, scissors and bunches of local spring flowers to create the wreaths. The ribbons and materials were given in the boxes and the flowers set out amongst the tables to grab from as needed. Setting up the space this way gave us pretty party decorations that doubled as craft supplies.

For a sweet treat we used an icing pen to write on our cake, it was a whimsical cake detail that was easy to do and made everyone smile.

To make the wreaths, we started with a few sturdy bases; Rosemary, eucalyptus, and baby’s breath allowed each of our wreaths to take on good solid form. Making the wreaths in miniature form allowed us to accomplish a project that was fun, but not too overwhelming.

After securing our bases to the floral wire, we added in bright spring blooms and pretty ribbon to finish off the miniature Easter wreaths. The wreaths can be used to hang in windows, on doorknobs, from kitchen cabinets, or used to top sweets this season. Making a miniature wreath is a craft almost anyone can accomplish.

The best guac recipe

Edible flower infused hummas

For easy to serve snacks I used Townhouse crackers and paired them with a few of my favorite apps. The Town House® Flatbread Crisp are great bottoms to an array of awesome cheeses. The Town House® Pita Crackers were the perfect dipping cracker with hummus. To bring a spring touch to this snack, we mixed in edible flowers. Sometimes it’s the littlest details that I find my friends loving the most!

I also combined Town House® Pretzel Thins with my homemade guacamole – it was my favorite combination. Something about the spice of the guac with the crunchy saltiness of the pretzel cracker is my new favorite. The pretzel thins are really a mix of a pretzel and cracker – so good!

I make guacamole almost every week and I don’t think making it needs to be complicated. I’d like to think it is a recipe I’ve perfected by now. Ha! My secret is a whole LOT of fresh limejuice and cilantro. It really makes the best taste for dipping.

Mix 4 avocados, with 1/2 diced red onion, 1 diced Jalapeno, 1 full bunch of Cilantro, juice from 3 limes, 2 cloves minced garlic, and a dash of onion powder + salt to taste. I chop everything pretty coarsely in a large bowl and use our immersion blender to get a creamy and tasty mixture, and then allow the mixture to sit in the fridge for 2-3 hours. A bowl of my guac goes really quickly at a party; so make sure there is extra on hand.

Spring crafting party

The party was a fun welcome to spring and a great chance to gather with a few dear friends. The food was easy, the drinks were yummy, and a simple craft that gave our hands something fun to do while we dished and chatted the evening away.
