Friday Finds: Favorite Links

We are feeling festive with Halloween in a few weeks and the major holidays a few short months away. There are so many ideas on the web to help us make our parties personal and unique and this week we discovered a delicious cake recipes to decor ideas for Halloween, birthdays and even a fall party with your family and friends.

1. This Applejack Cake from Bake This Cake is a delicious combination of apples, sour cream, butter and various spices that would be an incredible treat for a post-holiday bash or a weekend brunch with the family.

2. You don’t have to wait until the holidays for entertaining and Celebrations at Home shares some amazing tips on how to have a Rustic Fall Party. I love her suggestion to use a flannel throw for a tablecloth and cheese cloth for labeling.

3. Mobiles are designed to soothe and comfort a baby to sleep. For Halloween we discovered a creative one from Cupcakes and Cutlery featuring a DIY way to make Vampire Teeth with some plastic vampire teeth, embroidery rings and string for a unique decoration idea.

4. We are always looking for fun birthday ideas for our kids, and I was instantly struck by the feminine Shabby Chic Princess ideas from Kara’s Party Ideas. This includes cute straws, a bright pink color palette and adorable tissue pom poms.

Momtrends was not paid for this. We will be sharing our favorite picks of the week every Friday.
