Birthday Party - Part 2

The invites. They were designed on Photoshop and printed at home. Then I cut little scraps of paper to glue and machine sew to make bunting.

Very simple design. A little heart punch glued at the bottom.

The party was a good excuse to make homemade jam. It makes a lot so there was no need to keep it all for ourselves. I made 2 different kinds: strawberry and strawberry-pineapple. With the strawberries in season, it was inexpensive to make. The Ball Jars were most of the cost.
Now, I'm telling you anyone can make these jams. It was so easy - seriously. It tastes very sweet therefore it's very yummy. : ) I don't think I'm ever going to buy store bought jelly again. This (again) was way too easy and tastes way too good.

It makes a perfect summer gift. It also says it's good for 3 weeks in the fridge or up to 1 year in the freezer. Perfect. I'm making biscuits this weekend to complement the jelly. I'm definitely looking forward to Saturday morning! I have linked the recipes above so go ahead a try it!


  1. How long does the jelly keep for? And will I be getting some for my birthday? ;)

  2. This was all too stinkin' cute. I think I may have to officially hate you now.

  3. The jelly is good for 3 weeks in the fridge and up to 1 year in the freezer. And you will get some very shortly. : )
