A Hot Chocolate & Cupcake Valentine Party

You are Cordially Invited to

Baby Girl’s

Hot Chocolate & Cupcakes Valentine Party

Hand painted party hats for each guest and their American Girl doll.

A little party favor to take home.

Marshmallow frosting recipe I found on Pinterest. Yummy! http://veronicahurly.blogspot.com/2010/09/marshmallow-frosting.html

I have had the strawberry garland (above the bay window) for years and finally “dressed” it up with

Valentine wrapping paper I found at Paper Source.

Cupcakes had not been put on the tiered holder yet.

I have posted only a few pictures from the party because my dear friend Tracy from “Photographs by Tracy” took pictures of the party for me.  I know her pictures will be amazing compared to the pictures I took.  Plus, with all of the rushing around I was doing I did not take any pictures once the cupcakes were in place and a bit more of styling I did.  Care to see the pictures of the playhouse just two hours before the girls arrived?  At least my hair wasn’t in a towel when the other moms showed up!

I will be posting more pictures from Baby Girl’s party very soon.

Until next time,

Butterscotch Lady

Baby Girl and Valentine’s Past

I have an announcement to make…

My adorable 9 year old daughter has decided that she would like to be referred to here on Butterscotch Lady by her nickname, “Baby Girl”.  I have called her this for as long as I can remember.  I think it started when I would tell her that no matter how old she was she would always be my baby girl.  I kind of thought she would “outgrow” the nickname.  I was even expecting the “Mommy, we have to talk…” discussion where she tells me that she is way too old be called such a babyish name, especially at school-in front of friends!  But, alas, I guess she loves this nickname as much as I love whispering to her, “I love you Baby Girl, forever and always to the moon and back”.


Last year Baby Girl started a small tradition with a few close friends.  She invited the girls and their American Girl Dolls to a Valentine’s Tea Party.

All set and ready for tea!

Tea sandwiches and my dear friend P.R.’s divine jam tarts.

Who doesn’t love a party favor?

This black dresser was a $15 garage sale find that I refinished and added new hardware.

Baby Girl and I went to Paper Source (Thanks for the gift card Miss N.!) today to pick up a few things for next week’s Valentine Hot Cocoa & Cupcake Party.  It will be a busy week preparing!   I have to admit, I am LOVING that Baby Girl likes to entertain as much as I do!

Until next time,

Butterscotch Lady

(The hubby and son are still undecided about their Blog monikers.  Any suggestions?)
