Sweet Treats and Open House

One of the biggest sweet treats at my open houses are these amazing mini cupcakes (white cake with colored icing and topped off with seasonal/themed candies), also know as little bites of heaven...name given by my friend Rachel.
 I have so much fun planning parties and an Open House is another big party!  The theme for this open house was Valentine's of course....so when I was at Micheal's and saw these chocolate molds, I couldn't resist....great big kisses for everyone! 
 Each of my crafty friends received a hand stamped goodie bag, filled with a raffle ticket, a Spring/Summer Idea Book, a Operation Smile Flyer, a petite perk stamp set; a Valentine's Day pencil, a handmade chocolate kiss lollipop, a box of old fashion candy, raffle ticket tally and a make-n-take tally card AND one bag had a very special coupon in it for 25% off an entire order from the current idea book !!!
 If you are wondering what's involved in an open house, well here's a quick over view of my last event.....5 make-n-takes to choose from ranging from $1 to $5 donations for Operation Smile; 5 select pieces of artwork created by me for a Operation Smile silent auction; cash-n-carry; clearance items; new product line pre-view; and a lunch buffet.
