Mystery Planning: Sherlock Holmes Cake Pops and Invitation

Pin It I have been quiet on the blogging front lately, but not for lack of projects. I did take July off from parties (a wise decision), but I am already working steadily on several projects for August through November. Here's a sneak peek at one that I'm particularly excited about: my library's volunteer recognition.

Sherlock Cake Pop rough draft. 
If you follow me on Facebook and/or Instagram, these may look familiar. In keeping with our new tradition of book-themed parties for our volunteer recognition celebration, we landed upon Sherlock Holmes, which led to a mystery-themed plan. Eee, it's going to be so much fun! AND MYSTERIOUS.

Stay tuned for more details (and much later, for the actual party itself), but these rough drafts of cake pops and invitations give you an idea of the general mood I'm going for: English, tweedy, dark, masculine. The party will be in the Grand Reading Room, which is light and bright, but also lined with wood shelving and beautiful books. I'm imaging dark tablecloths with brown plaid runners or toppers (maybe just wrapping paper, to cut costs), with lots of Holmes-ian accessories styled in little vignettes: typewriters, violins, magnifying glasses, scientific instruments. . . Can you tell I'm excited!?

To keep track of the parties progress, check out the Pinterest board I made for it:
