What Caught My Eye Vol. IV

Good morning, I hope your week is flying by as the weekend is only a couple days away, hooray!  Today’s What Caught My Eye post is probably one of the most random.  It’s a mix of party related and non-party related things that I’ve found interesting lately.

Appetizer SpponsFirst, are these adorable little appetizer or dessert spoons.  I saw them on the shelf at Target in the clearance section, so they probably aren’t at every Target, but I thought they were so cute.  They are wooden with a blue and pink diamond design on them.  They were only about three inches long, so they are pretty small.  I do like that you can just recycle them when you’re done.

Chalkboard PosterboardThe second thing that caught my eye was found when I was planning my daughter’s Daniel Tiger birthday party.  I like to do a chalkboard sign every now and then, and this posterboard makes it so easy.  This poster board is made of a chalkboard like material so whatever designs you use can be cleaned right off and used over and over again.  I really like my fake chalkboard method, but this makes it even easier.

Almond Butter Toast
Next, is a little recipe I’ve been throwing together lately.  I was trying to find ways to incorporate more protein into my daughter’s diet and started using almond butter.  I’ve been buying a giant sized one at Costco so it will last a little longer.  This recipe is super easy.  Just spread some almond butter on a piece of toast, drizzle with a little honey, and sprinkle with some cinnamon.  It’s a little sweet, a little salty, and the cinnamon gives it a little something extra.  It’s great if you’re looking for an alternative topping to toast.  I even put this on a tortilla rolled up and cut into slices for a snack.  Delicious, and a perfect idea for all of those upcoming school lunches.

Check in CookiesWe were given cookies upon arrival at our hotel in Keystone recently when we visited for a wedding.  I absolutely love hotels that give you check in cookies.  Who doesn’t like cookies?  It’s nice to have a little sweet treat when you’re staying somewhere other than home.  I really liked the resort we stayed at.  You can check River Run in Keystone out here.

Cocktail NapkinsThe last thing I wanted to share was just the idea of fun cocktail napkins.  I saw these at a local store, but there are so many places to get them. Find some at places like Marshall’s and Homegoods where they are marked down quite a bit.  Why not start using these on an everyday basis to make your after work drink a little more fun?

So there are a few very random things that I’ve found interesting lately.  Have you found any great party items you want to share?  Write it in the comments section so I can check them out.  Have a great end of your week and weekend!

    That toast looks delicious. The little app spoons remind me of those individual appetizers that they pass out already on the spoons. These would be good for that.

      Totally, or some kind of tasting party. Like a chili cook off.
