The Partiologist: CottonTini Tails!

CottonTini Tails!

Yep, you read correct CottonTini Tails!  I wanted to save these for last because they were my favorite...and made me smile.  The idea came to me in the middle of the night.  You do wake up in the middle of the night and think about how to decorate a glass don't you?  Without further nonsense, here they are, the one and only...

Cotton Tini Tails

Hare's how I made them~
Round Hole Punch
Pastel Pipe Cleaners
Pastel Pom Poms
Foam Rabbits
Hot glued the little pom poms to the pipe cleaners, Punched a hole in the little rabbit's bum. Ouch - sorry about that!
Poked the pipe cleaner through the hole. 
Then wrap the pipe cleaner around the stem of the martini glass.
  It would work on any stemware, including Waterford Crystal!

Now it's time to sugar the rims.  Pour Karo syrup in a circle in one plate and colored sanding sugar on another~
Dip the rim of the glass in the syrup and then the sugar~
Ready to fill - CottonTini Tails!
Now you need the perfect place to serve the CottonTini Tails~
I chose to make a little fenced in yard, with a shadow box~
I filled the inside with green grass and added the grass  border and then the fence~
And the little Candy Easter Sign~
Made like this~

And all Easter wishes are sweeter if they're made from chocolate, right? When I saw this little mold at Hobby Lobby, it was calling my name...(and not Maureen)

You should see all of the ideas I have for this!! (I'm sure you will!)  But today, just for fun you, I made the Easter letters by melting colored candy melts in piping bags~
 If you don't have piping bags, melt in a microwave bowl and pour into baggie. (Like the purple). Trim the ends and pipe into the letter mold. Place in refrigerator until hardened,then remove  from mold and add to the front yard. Ready to be served~
I thought this would be a good way to END my Easter Party.  I hope I've inspired you to have an Easter Party, or at least a CottonTini!  Tail.
I have a couple more simple ideas...any takers?
If not...

The Bunny Stops Here!


  1. Wow Kim....wish I could wake up with such creative ideas. You are too even party in your dreams. This is such a cute and clever idea. Already pinned to my "Easter" and "Drinks" boards.

    So excited about the delicious cookies that arrived yesterday...not only do you bake and decorate with such clever ideas they also taste fantabulous...yes,
    gave in last night and had to eat one :-)

    1. So Funny, I wondered if you could hold off until Easter! :) Glad you liked them!

  2. This Easter party is absolutely wonderful! I love all your ideas.

    You should have at the bottom of your posts your other store where you can find your cookies for sale. I had it one time and now can't seem to find it. If it's at the bottom of your posts, you'd probably have more traffic going there. I know I can't get there because I can't remember your site. Ughh :)

    Please let me know what it is.

    1. Thanks Linda! Does this mean you want to see more?? My cookie website is

    2. Of course, I want to see more. I look forward to your posts in my mailbox. I'll head on over to your other site.
