father's day gifts and sweets

over the weekend we enjoyed getting together with our families to celebrate father's day.  ryan and i decided to get creative this year when it came to wrapping gifts and decorating dessert for our dads.  we wrapped their gifts with a neck tie theme, and decorated their cupcakes with a grilling theme . . .


we cut the neck ties out of patterned scrap-book paper.  for the little shirt-and-tie gift bags, we followed this printable template.  they were so cute, and they were the perfect size to hold gift cards for our dads.


we decorated the cupcakes to look like little grills.  we made the grill grates by piping melted chocolate onto wax paper and letting it cool.  then we used mini cow tales for the "steaks" and mike and ike candies for the "hot dogs" and the "shish kabobs."

we had so much fun decorating our dads' gifts and cupcakes!

hope everyone had a wonderful father's day too!
love, laurie
