Home Ideas on Happiness Is Homemade

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade Party

Welcome, this week's Happiness is Homemade Link Party is number 486. What that number means is that we have hosted 486 weeks of parties. Our party may be one of the longest lasting online blog parties ever: over 9 years!!! I believe that one of the explanations for its longevity is that the bloggers who visit us share top quality posts that are of great interest to you, our readers. We are consistently able to showcase the best recipes, crafts, home décor inspiration, DIY projects, mom-tips, family fun and more because of their experience and hard work!

The parties start in the wee hours each Sunday morning and remain open to new submissions through Thursday. Here is a little tip: link parties are most successful when lots of people to come by to visit them. And how do those people find us? Through you! It is so helpful when you share our party with your social media friends. Tweet it, pin it, email it, put the link on FB or Instagram... spread the news wherever your tribe gathers. We want to thank you, in advance, for being our voice! And here we are, 9+ years later. Wow! We start every week by visiting some of our very popular posts from our party last week. Then, we will go on to the NEW!

I had to take a second look when I saw these beautiful flowers. Bouquakes for Weddings by K'Mich Wedding Soiree Blog Take a close look at these perfect wildflowers. They are not flowers, you know. This is a wedding cake! They call it a "bouquake!" Gorgeous, isn't it????

Kathryn from The Dedicated House encourages her readers concerning the successful benefits of a clean, organized house in her post Creating Harmony from Office Oasis to Clean Home Haven. One look at this lovely, neat home and I was instantly inspired to start cleaning mine!

I am so grateful for what bees do for us. Busy, busy, busy! But I like them best depicted, here, with this lovely bee-decked napkin ring on a pristinely set table. Alfresco Bee Theme Tablescape & Florals from Debbee's Buzz is inspirational. You MUST stop by and see all the decorations that go with it!

Fancy desserts are part of holiday fun! What I love about this dessert is that you have the patriotic 4th of July theme with the ease of serving cupcakes - less fuss, less muss! Lois from Walking on Sunshine set her red, white and blue cupcakes in place to form an American Flag on the dessert table that everyone can just help themselves to. Bravo!!! Check out her Patriotic Cupcake Cake!

Meat-lovers are going to really like this one! Arlene from Flour on My Face blog made a delicious Smoked Barbecue Beef Brisket in her Crock Pot! Now, this is a recipe that this meat lover can get into. Easy, peasy!

OK, Kristy ... do you REALLY hate cooking? Your blog name says so but I wonder ... how do you make so many delicious looking recipes and hate what you do! It's a mystery.
