the sweetest thank you, cupcakes

A while back it was my dad's 60th birthday.  We decided to throw him a small surprise birthday party with close family and friends at a small local Indian restaurant. The restaurant had a private party room with a projector, it was just the right size! My sisters and I made a quick trip to the local Michaels (Arts + crafts store) and bought some simple decorations. We all thought it would be nice to send home the guests with a party favours, and as soon as we got to Michaels we saw these cute black and white boxes! Right away we thought of sending the guests home with some home made cupcakes placed in these cute boxes as party favours.  We bought some black and white ribbon, matching cupcake wraps and tags for personalizing each box.  My youngest sister went ahead and baked the cupcakes and we all partook in decorating them. It was a lovely way of saying thank to our guests and we heard back from many of them saying how much they enjoyed the cupcakes! 



  1. Ah, those cupcakes made me hungry! Looks really delicious! Anyway dear, was wondering if you wanna follow each other? Just let me know if you followed me via GFC, Bloglovin or Facebook and I would gladly return the favor. Hope to keep in touch! ♥

  2. Those cupcakes look so good and I love the boxes!

  3. Homemade treats are such a nice way to show someone you care as you took the time to actually bake something instead of just picking up at the store, not to mention a great way to save some $! Such a great idea to go the extra mile and pick up decorative goodies at Michaels though, really takes it to the next level!
