Leading the way in this trend is Kate Aspen who now makes vinyl backdrops in many different styles and themes that can be personalized to add that special touch to your next party, bridal shower or wedding. Any of these would also be perfect as a backdrop for a photo booth! Check out how I used these personalized backdrops 3 different ways for 3 different types of events

 Better than Football Chocolate Cake Recipe

We here at HWTM are pretty big fans of football, so you can imagine our excitement when Britni Vigil of Play. Party. Pin. offered to share the recipe for her “Better than Football” Chocolate Cake with us! I think it’s safe to say, we are now also fans of the chocolate caramel combo! ;)

“This cake is inspired by one that a volleyball teammate of mine and I made years ago. I thought it would be fun to recreate it for our pseudo sports themed party. It’s really simple and includes only five ingredients!”

Chocolate is Better than Football Girls Night Party

Football parties can be such a fun way to get into the game — with yummy snacks, team decor and a house full of excited friends! But for Britni Vigil of Play. Party. Pin., football season means that much of her free time is devoted to watching the games at home, which doesn’t leave a lot of room for girl time. So as a last indulgent hurrah, she threw this Chocolate is Better than Football Girls’ Party filled with everything chocolate, including lots of her favorite — Snickers!

As an added bonus, Britni is generously sharing the recipe for her “Better than Football” Chocolate Cake (a bold statement, but I can’t really imagine anything better than the perfect chocolate cake). Check out some drool-worthy photos of all of the chocolate desserts below, and then get the recipe details for the cake right here.

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Mini chocolate eclair footballs & football cookies + ‘Team Snickers’ cookies & cupcakes
– Chocolate fondue + strawberries, marshmallows & cookie dippers + chocolate sprinkle rimmed milk bottles
– DIY blue glittered football centerpiece, gold glitter dipped mason jars & glittered utensils
– Mini chocolate bar name card holders, chocolate two-tier cake + DIY sewn pouch favors
