    2. No budget for a fancy cake?  Use gum on a simple frosted cake to write out the message.  This is a super easy hack for a candy party!  SpearmintKitchen

    3. Use a lemon for guests to dispose of used toothpicks.  RealSimple

    4. Get the messy work done ahead of time!  Scoop ice cream into cupcake liners and put back in the freezer.  Just pull out when the cake is served. This is fast, and much less expensive than buying individually packaged ice cream containers. RealSimple

    5.  I’m always a fan of having a healthy food option at a party, but it’s tricky to know how to serve fruit.  Use waffle cones as serving containers for a pretty presentation and a tasty cup! FunCheapOrFree

    6. Freeze ice cream in a tray, and then use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes to match the party theme.  Decorada
