Students Can Get Free iPads Today - April 3, 2014 by Admin

Gotcha! That’s right, it’s April Fool’s Day! The day of tomfoolery is a favorite among students both young and old. From classic pranks, like short-sheeting your dorm mate’s bed, to newer versions like filling the dorm hallway with cupfuls of water (or beer) requiring those who want to pass through to drink-as-they-go, pranks will rule the day today.

And it’s not just your friends that will trying to get the last laugh either, keep an eye out for some sneaky school administrators, college newspaper editors (and Super Senior bloggers) who may be trying to pull the wool over your eyes today as well. Don’t believe us? Well just check out this story from Huffington Post describing some of the great lengths schools went to fool their enrollees. With antics like publishing plans of a new campus crammed into a football stadium, to convincing students that their campus is moving from Rochester New York to Rochester England, it’s no surprise that students get creative with their pranks as well. Here are just a few of our favorite April Fool’s Day college pranks that were mentioned in the story.

- Vassar’s school newspaper announced to students that they would be charging for their online content.

- Johns Hopkins told students on April Fool’s day that they would henceforth go by John Hopkins, dropping the “s” from their name.

- For the April occasion Northwestern’s newspaper adopted a Star Wars theme complete with an obituary to Yoda.

May the force be with you today, this day of mayhem and keep you one step ahead of the pranksters whever they may be!

Kentucky Derby Party- FREE Printables!! - May 7, 2012 by Admin



This beautiful KENTUCKY DERBY PARTY, submitted by Deanna Talwalkar of Mirabelle Creations is so fun! I have always wanted to go to the Kentucky Derby, every year when the time draws near I think about it and imagine it. Sigh. One of these days I am going to finally go! But for now, I can dream and gaze at beautiful photos of the event and beautiful parties like this one! Good Job, Deanna! So jealous that you grew up attending the Kentucky Derby every year!

The greatest part about this party- DOWNLOAD ALL THE PRINTABLES FOR THIS PARTY FOR FREE HERE!

Here is what Deanna had to say about the party- “Kentucky has been ‘home’ my entire life – born and raised (as we’d say here). And, there is no bigger day in Kentucky than Derby Day. All eyes are on our beautiful state and every Kentuckian’s head is held just a little bit higher that day. Early in life, Kentuckians realize that Derby day also means fabulous Derby parties. Whether it is a small family gathering, an intimate catered event, or a huge blow-out, everyone attends some type of Derby party on Derby day.

Even as a child, my favorite Derby moment was crowning the Derby winner with the traditional rose garland. Thus, the red rose was my starting point for this Derby dessert table. The printables incorporated the red rose, along with a silhouette of the state of Kentucky and a horseshoe. I chose a modern color palette of red, pale blue, and chocolate brown. I designed party circles, cake bunting, blank and fill-in invitations, place cards and candy bar wrappers. The links for all the free printables can be found In this post.

The rose theme was also repeated in the table décor. I made a crepe paper rose garland, which hung above the dessert table. Fresh red roses were placed in a mint julep cup. The rose was also visible in the desserts — the Strawberry Rose Meringue and a decoration on the Jockey Silk Sugar Cookies.

For the desserts, I first purchased the White Cake from a local bakery, then adorned it with a pale blue ribbon and a Derby cake bunting. I made one of my favorite Kentucky desserts – Bourbon Balls. Every year at Christmas, my mom, like most Kentuckians, would make bourbon balls and I couldn’t wait to eat them. These traditional bourbon balls are updated by being made into a pop. Another traditional Kentucky dessert is the Derby Pie – a gooey brown sugar, pecan, and dark chocolate treat. I made Derby Pie Inspired Cupcakes: a butter cake with mini chocolate chips and pecans in the batter, topped with brown sugar buttercream, mini chocolate chips and pecan pieces. Jockey Silk Sugar Cookies were topped with a small red rose (I made the roses using a fruit roll-up). Strawberry Rose Meringues also carried out the Derby rose theme.”
