So Hanukkah 2012 started a few days ago but for all of our Jewish friends, we thought it would be fun to share some quick and easy ideas for Hanukkah treats. The kids (and adults) will love ‘em! And of course one not need to be Jewish to partake in the yummy Hanukkah goodness!
All you need is marshmellows, pretzel sticks, blue sugar, and some Hershey’s kisses. So easy and fun!
These delicious Hanukkah treats are created from Hershey’s kisses, marshmallows, pretzel sticks, and melted semisweet and white chocolate.
This yummy Hanukkah menorah is so simple! Cupcakes (homemade or store bought, whichever you choose), Twix candy bars, and Peanut M&M’s on top for the candle flame.
Stay tuned next week for delicious Christmas treats…

The summer is almost over…Labor Day is THIS weekend and the kids are back in school. Did you blink? Crazy, right!? Soon, we’ll be talking about Halloween costumes, Thanksgiving turkey, and Christmas morning eggnog. But for now, Labor Day…
Old tradition would tell you to pack away your white – your white pants, shorts, skirts, shoes, shirts, accessories. Only “winter white” is suitable for after Labor Day, right? WRONG! Where did that silly “rule” come from, anyway? You may be surprised to find out that it actually has historical roots. Ya learn something new everyday!
Whether or not you choose to pack away the white or keep it out, chances are you’ll be heading towards a Labor Day BBQ of some sort this weekend. What to eat? Perhaps, your plate will look a little something like this.
Perhaps your outfit could resemble this.
I’d venture to guess they’ll be a whole lot of RED, WHITE, and BLUE! Kinda like this…
Regardless of how you celebrate Labor Day and what “labor” means to you, you’ll do well to keep this in mind…
Happy Labor Day!
Do you use “Google” as a verb? You know, as in “I don’t know what that means, I’ll Google it later.” Well, I know for a fact that I do. And recently I caught myself using “You Tube” as a verb. Someone asked if I saw the video of the US Olympic swim teams singing along to Call Me Maybe. My response…”No, but I’ll You Tube it tonight.” See – verbs.
Speaking of You Tube, have you seen our Modern Posh video?
Let us know what you think!

Strolling through Pinterest the other day I came across this sweet picture of a baby shower for Jade over at Lovey Living. After looking at a few days of dark overcast skies this was just such a happy pick-me-up. I must admit that it does make me yearn for Spring and tulips. In celebration of her new bundle of joy Jade picked the ever favorite pink! Hey, what girl doesn’t like pink. From the tissue pom “clouds” hanging overhead to a charming dessert table, this party definitely feels like a sweet lullaby-come-true!
The table came from inspiration from sites such as Party Perfect and Hostess with the Mostess these blogs are amazing and some of the parties are simply to die for. They are both great sites for getting theme ideas.
Paying attention to all the details certainly makes this table look amazing. Tiny muffin flags, coordinating colored cupcake wrappers, straw embellishments and labeled jars of candy pull the whole look together.
I love how incredibly clean and pretty this celebration feels. Using all white plates and tablecloth makes all the goodies take center stage. A simple pink bird banner adds that little touch of whimsy. I’m sure this baby shower was a smashing success!
Now that we are all done running around trying to cross-off everything on our to-do list for Christmas, it’s time to slow down, relax and enjoy some quiet home time. After seeing this unique dessert table over at Hostess (with the mostess), I thought this would be a great idea for hosting a small get-together for New Year’s Eve. Jessica of Pen and Paper Flowers, is the creative talent behind this beautiful party idea that reflects the warmth of the Holiday Season.
This color palette has such a calm soft feel to it and lends itself to be used in so many other settings — wedding showers, anniversary parties, baby showers, etc. If you’re thinking you might like to use this idea for your New Year’s Eve party, why not sprinkle a little opaque glitter around your table to jazz things up.
As 2011 comes to an end we at Modern Posh want to thank you for your patronage. We look forward to an exciting and creative 2012.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
