Festive Party Ideas on the Today Show!

Last week during my regular appearance on the Today Show, I shared some festive party ideas, which appeared in the January issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine.  Inspiration for the story was generated from celebrating the magazine’s twentieth anniversary.  Today Show co-host Meredith Viera, was actually celebrating her birthday that day, so the timing was quite apropos.  I displayed our “Who’s Counting?” cake, a cake in the shape of numbers, using simple stencils from my website.  The numbers are cut out from a sheet cake, then iced with buttercream, and topped with two-pounds of brightly-colored M&Ms I showed how to create really fun party hats, personalized with enlarged photos, also using a template from my website.   And in keeping with the photo theme, I showed how to make a photo-lined acrylic serving tray, photo balloons, and even photo cupcakes.
