Little Red Wagon

The Little Red Wagon....It is such an iconic part of every childhood from my parents who were born in the 30's to my future grandkids. It just doesn't seem to go out of style! So we decided to use it for our party!

The printables were our inspiration for color and tone. They came from Forever Your Prints. I love the whimsical color scheme that updated the whole theme of the party. The cupcake liners, water bottle covers, and all the tags came from her shop! 

Our friend Brittany Rumohr of Edible Details  is so brilliant! Her red wagons are adorable and we put them on the top of our cupcakes. They are so easy to use and they are so well packaged! They came without a scratch! For something so fragile to come without injury is amazing and a testimony to how careful she is in making and shipping them! 

My sweet husband is always coming up with something brilliant in the kitchen! If I've had a long hard day he is so great to see that and pitch in. He has come up with a sammie that I just can't live without! He does up some bacon and then some fried apples, and then puts them on a grilled cheese. I was a little skeptical when he first told me about this. He read it was a favorite in the 50's and boy did he make it come alive again! He uses American, provolone, and mozarella cheeses in the sammie. Oh...if you only lived close! I would have you come taste mine!

 We have a lovely family recipe I would like to share here. It works with just about any kind of fruit. We call it a "krisp" with whatever fruit you want on the front end of that. It is famously at our home Apple Krisp. But we tried cherry with this little party to see if it would work and YUM! It did! 

It is so easy! 

Krisp Topping

1c. flour (Gluten Free works!!)
1 stick butter
1 1/2 c. sugar

Crumble this together like a pie and put it on top of the fruit. It is THAT easy! Put it all in the oven for 45 minutes or until golden. 

This yummy popcorn came from Colby Ridge Popcorn and gifts. They make the yummiest popcorn on the planet. Some popcorn is super hard and lots of hulls. Not this one! If you love popcorn like me, you'll have to try it!!
