It’s been a while since I last blogged, so I bet you thought that I forgot about Easter! I’m back, just in time for some last minute Easter basket ideas. While last year I focused on some really great candy/food options, this year I wanted to focus on baskets for kids that were a little […]

Remember when you used to go to birthday parties and you’d get a Hoodsie cup for dessert? I always ate the vanilla side first and then reluctantly ate the chocolate. And those wooden ‘spoons’? Yeah. Well, good news, there’s some new players in town that will make you say Hoodsie who? Ok, so maybe still […]

Let’s be honest, 1 year olds don’t need party favors, but it is nice to have guests leave a party with a little something. La Doce is Boston’s first online boutique to offer Brazilian birgadeiros. They say they are a cross between a truffle and a caramel – these confections just melt in your mouth! […]

Chocolate! and you learn the basics of […]
