Summer in Bloom Link Party

Earlier this Summer I joined all the fun at the 
Bloom Design's Summer in Bloom Party.
It was full of great ideas, parties, crafts, recipes and fun.
Now it is time to see your fabulous ideas!

 Your ideas will show up on all of these participating blogs
Make sure to follow all of these ladies for inspiration throughout the year! You can find each of them on social media sites by click on their name

Muppets Most Wanted Party

This is a sponsored post for Disney on behalf of Blueprint Social.  All ideas, content and opinions are entirely my own.

What a fun summer treat,
Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and all the Muppets gang are back in
Muppets Most Wanted.

Two Frogs! One Pig! Intrigue! Music! Mayhem! Muppets!
They are on an international adventure and 
Kermit has been mistaken for the evil frog Constantine.
He needs to clear his name and foil Constantine's plan to steal the Crown Jewels of England.

What better way to celebrate the movie release of the Blu-ray DVD Combo Pack, 
than with Muppet themed  snacks?

Constantine Mint Chip Shakes...

It isn't easy being mean, 
so of course you'll need extra "moles"...

Kermit Sherbet Floats, 
Easy, green and fun just like everyone's favorite amphibian.
(scoops of lime sherbet topped with sparkling water)...

Then Piggy Gumball Pearls.

Miss Piggy always wears them, 
and everyone needs something pretty and sweet to chew on during the show...

I couldn't resists a small ode to 
The Crown Jewels...

my hand drawn Queen Elizabeth Bowl, 
topped with a glorious crown and filled with Ring Pops...

The Piggy Pearls could not be easier to make.
Simply take white jumbo gumballs
and pierce 2 opposite  sides with a skewer
(don't poke all the way through or they will crack)...

then thread white ribbon through the holes,

repeat with more gumballs and tie ribbon ends together.

Join the fun, Join the Muppets!

The Muppets Most Wanted is available on Blu-ray Combo Pack and Digital HD
August 12th at Disney.com

Cue the Bagpipes - The Outlander Premiere

I love to watch TV,
I always have and I always will.

I don't discriminate,
I watch dramas, comedies, reality, news…
Well,  I have a new television obsession,

I was lucky enough to preview the first 2 episodes and I'm totally hooked.
It's an epic tale with history, mystery, intrigue, secrets and complex characters,
all set in the stunning Scottish countryside.

It is premiering Saturday, August 9th on Starz and
a party is in order.
 Bagpiper invitations...

delivered in Tartan draped envelopes.

set the tone for this Scottish Saga.
Time Warner Cable has provided access to this series, based on the books by Diana Gabaldon.
Outlander follows the story of Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945 who is
mysteriously swept back in time to 1743.
She is thrown into an unknown world where her life is threatened.
When she is forced to marry Jamie, a chivalrous and
romantic young Scottish warrior (who is very easy on the eyes!),
a passionate affair is ignited that tears Claire's heart between
two vastly different men and worlds.

Judging from the pandemonium and excitement surrounding the
Outlander events at Comic-Con in San Diego last weekend,
I am not the only one excited.

It would be Outlandish to miss Outlander.
Watch and let me know if you think Jamie Fraser is as cute as I do!

For more information on Outlander,
 follow the show on Facebook
