Goulish and good for you!

Healthy and Halloween are not two words that usually go together. But that was my goal last year when my daughter asked if we could host her friends for a party on October 31.

Now, let’s be clear about a couple of things. First, I’m not a particulary creative in the kitchen. But doesn’t this look easy? And second, I’m not saying that the evening was completely chocolate and sugar free. But dare I say, these fruit snacks were gobbled up as quickly as any candy bar.

My daughter and I had so much fun making these treats together. Nothing is more special than spending time with your flower girl – even if you are making creepy-looking fruit!

I found these recipes online so I will send you to the original sites for the details.

Please note, I used a black decorating gel, on the fruit kababs, but the black candy melts will surely work better as recommended.

Enjoy!

Flower Girls and Ring Bearers

It’s been five years since the Royal Wedding. We know what William and Kate have been up to, but what about their flower girls? Here’s the update on two of them…

 

Remember little Grace who couldn’t handle all the commotion?

Well, she’s 8-years-old now. And she’s looking a lot happier (despite the head boo-boo).

Clearly William’s goddaughter knows how to pose now!

Another bridal party beauty was flower girl Lady Louise Windsor.

The daughter of Prince Edward and Sophie Countess of Wessex is now 12 years old. It’s amazing how quickly they grow up!

What about the other flower girls? Please fill us in if you have insider info.

Meet our new character – IVY!

0

We are so excited to introduce our newest Flower Girl World character, Ivy Glendon. She’s from Los Angeles, California and she’s the Rock ‘n’ Roll Flower Girl.

Scroll down to see how author Lynelle Woolley and illustrator Karen Wolcott worked together to create Ivy.

It all began with hair inspiration.

And from there we moved onto a sketch. She looks so cool!

We decided to give her a haircut and have her stand up straight. Do you like that she’s holding a pomander instead of a basket full of petals?

At first we dressed her in emerald green.

But then we thought she might look too much like Rosie.

So we decided to dress her in black – she’s rock ‘n’ roll, after all! But what would she look like without the guitar?Ivy_PoseWithoutGuitar-01

Ivy makes her Flower Girl World debut in the third chapter book, Starr and the High Seas Wedding Drama – coming this June! There’s a lot of adventure in that book, and here are some of Ivy’s expressions to prove it.

Flower Girl Hair Tutorial: Easy Updo

0

We’re celebrating flower girl hair this week, and nothing is better than an Easy Updo that anyone can do! And the best part? It looks great when it’s messy! This hairstyle works best on flower girls with medium-long hair that has some wave.

What you’ll need: comb, clear hair elastics, clamp clips, bobby pins, hairspray, accessory (optional)

Starr1

Using a comb, divide the hair into two sections just above the ear. Clip the top section on top of the head.

Starr2

Twist bottom section into a low, messy bun and secure with an elastic and bobby pins.

Starr3

Unclip top section and create a low ponytail. Secure with elastic. Create a small hole above the elastic and pull the ponytail through it. Repeat again if the ponytail is long.

Starr4Starting at the end of the ponytail, begin to roll it under as if you were rolling it around a small curler. Pin it underneath itself with bobby pins. Use hairspray to hold it in place.

Starr5Accessorize with a cute headband or hair clip.

Our ballerina flower girl, Camellia, loves to wear her hair in a “Ballerina Sock Bun.” It’s perfect ‘do to wear to weddings, dance recitals, or anytime you want a simple yet fancy look. We’ll show you how to create it using an athletic tube sock! Watch the video or scroll down for the step by steps:

 

 

What you’ll need: athletic tube sock, scissors, hair elastic, brush, bobby pins, hairspray, accessory (optional)

 

Hand and sock1

 

With an adult’s help, snip a couple of inches off the toe of the sock. Roll the sock from the top down to create a donut shape.

Cami1

Starting with a high ponytail, feed the top of the ponytail through the sock donut, leaving the ends out.

Cami 3

Spread the ends around the donut and gently start rolling down, tucking ends under and smoothing the hair as you go.

Pin the ballerina bun at the base and add a spritz of hairspray.
