peanut butter birthdays

today is my friend Sarah's birthday and because she is a lover of all things purple and all things peanut butter i decided to combine the two for her on her special day. so i set out to find the perfect combination of purple party favors to jazz up her cubicle. here's what i found:

now that i have all of my supplies, the madness can begin. first i started by making chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter buttercream frosting, basically a large peanut butter cup.

the finished product -- all supplies from above were used (all from Michael's with a 40% off coupon)

don't you love the purple glitter bag with the matching ribbon and of course the monogrammed sticker! the bag has a loofa, bubble bath and a nail file from bath and body works (also used a $10 off coupon). i want people to know that it's not hard to put a fun gift together even when you are on a budget. in total this cost $30 and i have 10 more yards of ribbon, an entire set of stickers and 2 more cupcake boxes that i can use for the next birthday.

next time i think i'll do red on black...what do you think?

until next time...happy baking and happy birthday to my wonderful friend Sarah who inspired this post xoxo
