Caterpillar Countdown: Thursday Heather Hopson July 19, 2012 Baby 1 Comment Dear Diary, It’s day 4 of party planing, and I’ve worked up an appetite. I craved cookies and candy. Maybe the sugar will give me a second wind. On Thursday, I flew in cookies from Hawaii and created a candy buffet. The Cookie Queen takes a page right out of Eric Carle’s book! Her treats look too good to even eat, but I did take a bite out of the lollipop one, which arrived in two pieces. The cookies were each individually bagged and packed in bubble wrap. When I told the owner one was broken, she said she would ship a replacement! She also offered a $10 discount on my next order. Awesome customer service! I wasn’t upset in the least. As a matter of fact, my 7-year-old nephew and I were secretly happy, because we got to taste test the batch without feeling guilty. In addition to the food items, I received before and after caterpillars and a beautiful butterfly. She also created a polka-dotted cookie that read, Caitlynn is One! Very Extravagant Order cookies from the Cookie Queen. Buy one gallon penny jar glass containers and decorate with polka-dot stickers. Fill the penny candy jars with Gerber Graduate Puffs. It took four containers to fill the jar. I recommend buying 1/2 gallon jars. The one gallon jars were really big! Very Affordable I borrowed Mason Jars from my mother to use as candy containers. I decorated the containers with ribbons and labels, which I made on my computer. I picked up brand name candy, like Lemon Heads and Gummy Worms, at the Dollar Store. My mom–who by the way holds the world record in shopping–for some reason purchased a gum ball machine years ago, so we went to the bulk candy store in the Strip District and got gum balls. Make a lollipop tree. I got this idea from a DFTM member Monique. I printed out a caterpillar, put a party hat sticker on its head and a cupcake in its mouth. I also bought a large flower-pot from Michael’s, which was only a few dollars, and a Styrofoam ball. But I was still hungry to plan more. One Response Clash of Clans Hacks July 27, 2013 Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions?
