5 Cute Big & Little Halloween Costume Ideas!

It is almost that time of year again! Time to put on a cute costume, and go out with your best friends for some dancing! I know I always have the hardest time deciding what to be for Halloween, and think that some of the best costume ideas are ones in pairs! That led us to search for some of the best & cutest ideas for Big & Little costume ideas! Here they are:

1.) T H E . S E V E N . D W A R F S >> Great for multiple sisters and super simple to pull off! Hey, we can even print you the shirts! 🙂

2.) M A R Y   K A T E + A S H L E Y . O L S E N >> These iconic twins are a perfect way to go all out matching your big or little! Nothing says, “You Got It Dude,” like flower embellished overalls from 1990! A trip to your local thrift store might also be in order for this one!

3.) W I N N I E . T H E . P O O H: With the new Pooh movie coming out this is a super cute (and relevant!) way to show up & look adorable! I mean really, how cute are all those little ears!

4.) G O S S I P . G I R L >> “Spotted on the steps of the student union are Serena & Blair. Wait til you hear what we just learned!” Ok…. now if you know this show (admittedly, I was obsessed) Blair MUST be in a headband, school uniform is the dress code (dig up your old high school uniform & alter!), and a cell phone to get all the gossip is a requirement!

Meet Ollie Bean! The paws behind Ollie + Ivy!

Hey Ladies!

By now, you might be wondering how we came about changing our name of The Greek Ink Press to Ollie + Ivy! It all comes down to a sweet pup named, Ollie Bean!

Ollie Bean is our official mascot. He is the sweetest little teddy bear and snuggling puppy! Ollie was born in March of 2015 in South Carolina and the very day we got him he changed our world! This is me bringing him home (as you can see I’m already in love!) >> ollie2

While on our way back to Florida we made a pit stop for some time to let him run around and stretch his legs. Instead Ollie just wanted to lay in the cool clover and ivy patches that were scattered all over. He would not get out of it no matter how hard we tried!

That is what led to this picture of Ollie Bean that lead to the creation of Ollie + Ivy >> OliverBean

Here are some more images of Ollie to melt you heart! >>

 

We hope you love Ollie + Ivy and Mr. Ollie Bean behind all the magic!

4.) V I C T O R I A ‘ S . S E C R E T >> (Photo: @TotalSororityMove) Her secret was me! We love this idea, because you can replace Victoria with your own name and make it super personal! Plus the oversized pink stripe bag doesn’t get any cuter!

All these themes are adorable and so creative! Don’t forget that we here at Ollie + Ivy can customize any design for you, so if you have an idea that you want to be personalized we can do it for you!

National Pancake Day!

Excuse us while we stay in bed a little longer this morning with some delicious pancakes to celebrate #NationalPancakeDay!

Here is our favorite good old fashioned pancake recipe thanks to Allrecipes.com!

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • cooking spray

Directions

  1. Combine milk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to “sour”.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk egg and butter into “soured” milk. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side.

Don’t forget to top with sliced strawberries, and a TON of whipped cream! Also, a little powder sugar never hurt anyone!
