World’s Smallest Donuts?

Please Stumble this Post:

Miniature Cheerio Donuts image

Are these cute little Miniature Cheerio Donuts the World’s smallest? I don’t think you could technically class them as actual donuts, as they’re made from cereal, but they certainly look nice and are better for your waistline!

The box of donuts is really a pill box….Emma’s holding her favorite, a cheerio dipped in chocolate, then sprinkles. The others are cheerios dipped in confectioners’ sugar and cheerios rolled in cinnamon sugar.

The Best Wedding Invitation Ever?

Girls on best wedding invitation

Is this the best Wedding Invitation ever? Just maybe! I just found this ‘online invitation’ and just had to share this inspiration with you all. Basically, the wedding invite is an online story about how two people met. You read their story and scroll your way to the base of the page. If you were invited to the wedding, you would then enter your password to confirm attendance to the ‘off-line’ event. I think it’s a really original concept, and I’m sure you’ll enjoy it too. You can visit the Jessandruss website to view the whole invitation. Below, I’ve included a few highlights from the site…

Man on wedding invite

The Web Wedding Invitation starts off: “Almost four years ago, fate and a few mouse clicks brought Russ Maschmeyer and Jessica Hische together. They went from complete strangers to inseparable companions in work and love. This is how it all began.”
