So I've been keeping a little secret from you ladies...
Let me begin by saying that no, I am not having twins. For real, a friend of mine asked!
The big news is that....
I'm opening a business!
Or should I say,weare opening a business; as in me and my friend Stacey.
Stacey and I are both third grade teachers, mamas to some precious kiddos, and bargain shoppers! Over the last few years we have toyed with the idea of opening a business in an effort to make a little extra money for our families; as well as to do something else we enjoy. However, up until three weeks ago, it was always just talk and tossing around ideas. But when Stacey messaged me at 6 o'clock one morning several weeks back with the most ingenious idea ever, there was no looking back. So let me introduce you to our new baby....
Cupcakes & Confetti combines Stacey's love of baking with my love of decorating to provide you with a variety of services ranging from your very own do-it-yourself cupcake bar, to parties in a box, and even full scale party planning.
When we mentioned our little business venture to our friends and family they had lots of questions so let me explain about the services we offer...
What is a do-it-yourself cupcake bar?
Our do-it-yourself cupcake bar is a fun way to bring something sweet to your home, office, or party! All we need you to provide is a small space for us to set up and some people that love cupcakes as much as we do and we'll take care of the rest!
Our cupcake bars will come complete with multiple cupcake flavor options, different icing choices, and of course a variety of toppings. All of which your party guests can choose from to create their own unique cupcake to their own liking. And speaking of unique, we'll customize your cupcake bar to match the color and theme of your party so there's no need for you to worry about the decorations.
What is a party in a box?
Ever wanted to throw an amazing party but just didn't have the time and effort to go out and shop for supplies or put together those awesome party printables you see all over Pinterest? No worries! As working mamas, we've been there. Let us take the prep work out of the party for you. We'll be happy to put together a party in a box containing all the necessary party printables and paper goods that you'll need to throw the best birthday party, baby shower, wedding shower, engagement party, holiday party, or cookout ever!
What full party planning services do we offer?
Currently we are offering two full-service party planning options: Cupcake Decorating Parties and an add-on package for Hosting Your Party!
Our Cupcake Decorating Party is ideal for kids ages 4 and up. Not only will we bring this party to you, we'll host the entire thing in just a few hours! We'll assist each party guest in decorating his/her own apron and cupcake; read a sweet story; play a game; then take care of all of the clean up before we go so that you don't have to!
As for our Hosting Your Party, when purchasing one of our parties in a box, you can purchase an add-on service in which we'll host your entire party for you! We'll be happy to come in and decorate one hour before your event, stay for the duration of the party assisting where needed, and then we'll take care of the clean up. Our hope is that by offering this service you can relax and enjoy the party yourself. As both Stacey and I know what it's like to throw a party only to realize you didn't have the opportunity to relax and enjoy your friends and family's company when it was all said and done due to dealing with all the ins and out of party hosting.
Though we're just getting started on this little venture, we would love it if you would follow along! You can find us on facebook here; as well as on instagram here. Be sure to like both of our pages to keep up with what's happening. And be on the look out tomorrow for a fun, new party in a box that we will be offering for just a limited time. You mamas won't want to miss it!
