It’s been quite a long time since I styled a party for my kiddos. Between trying to sell our previous house and getting settled into our new one, we’ve kept celebrations small.

With my little Kamilla’s 2nd birthday approaching fast, I wanted to do something special for her. We hardly did anything for her 1st birthday.


Not going to lie here, it was a challenge getting my creative juices going. For so long my focus had been in home decorating & improvements that I hadn’t allowed myself to craft much. [Read more…]


Camping Party by TheMarshmallowStudio

It’s kind of fun when your kiddos are old enough to get involved in their birthday party planning.

My eldest son, Aiden, is obsessed with parties and entertaining. He’s always putting together little parties for his stuffed animals, setting up the table when his friends come over for play dates and he’s quick to volunteer in my Studio when I’m crafting. Every year (way ahead of time) he tells me what theme he want for his next birthday party.

For his 6th birthday party he wanted a CAMPING PARTY!

Gingerbread Marshmallow Brownie Man_TheMarshmallowStudio

SWEET!!! Christmas is just around the corner and I cannot wait!

Every family has their own traditions. In my family, it’s all about cooking, baking and spending time together. We don’t have customary Christmas recipes that we do but one thing is for sure, it always involves tons of desserts.

In my book it’s just not a real celebration until you add dessert! With that in mind, for my boys it’s just not as fun unless they get to join in the prepping. I’m raising them to be involved and helpful around the house and kitchen. They love learning how to cook and bake which I’m very happy to see. I wanted to create a simple and fun recipe that they could help me with every step of the way. As with most kids, their favorite part is decorating so I thought I’d make a gingerbread man type of dessert. I’ve made gingerbread cookies in the past and for what I was trying to accomplish, that would’ve been too much work so instead I decided on a brownie!

Shortbread Cups with Grilled Peaches and Marshmallow Dip by TheMarshmallowStudio

For The Love Of Cheese – and peaches and marshmallows!!

This month I was asked to create a recipe celebrating cheese-filled entertainment recipes for Kraft Recipes. For the Love of Cheese… well, that’s the easiest thing I’ve ever been asked to do since I absolutely love cheese…. all kinds of cheese. From the stinky, tangy flavor of Bleu cheese to the creamy sweetness of Brie and even the simple Monterey Jack, I could eat it all day, every day and never get tired of it. I think cheese goes particularly well with bacon (hahaha what doesn’t?!) There are so many kinds of cheese and even more ways to incorporate it into meals. The possibilities are truly endless!

Cookies & Milk party by TheMarshmallowStudio.com

My son was turning 3 and we wanted to celebrate it with a party like we always do.

However, since our new home is almost done being build and we are trying to save as much as possible, we needed to come up with a way to celebrate on a budget but not skimp on the wow factor.

I had all kinds of ideas – hot dog bar, nachos stations, donuts party, snacks and refreshments…. I finally decided on a “Cookies and Milk” party.
