Princess: Toothpicks

 So.....I had a princess themed dinner with Blythe came into town last month.  Despite my cousin and his wive's best efforts to suppress the princess passion when Blythe was little, she naturally gravitated towards all things girlie as she grew.  We got to spend the first half of the week with the whole family, and I was able to host a Patriotic feast I'll be posting about soon, but towards the second half of the week Mom and Jonathan had to fly home while my cousin and Blythe remained, and I stole her away for a girl's night. 
I have a whole princess themed menu to share, but I knew I needed some special, girlie touches to serve up these 3 year old approved dishes.  I looked for some fancy toothpicks, but could not find what I needed, and decided to make my own.  For 50 cents, I had some pretty snazzy picks.  I found a string of beads at the craft store for 50 cents.  I just made sure the hole was big enough to slip on the end of a toothpick. 
 I hot glued my picks in place.....and ta da.....bedazzled toothpicks!
