Have you tried a surprise ball yet? They're so fun -- stickers, miniature animals and other little treasures wrapped in crepe paper to resemble a ball. They're made in the form of everything from fruit to flowers. We fell in love with Robert Mahar's bright beauties at Crafting Community in Palm Springs. They're perfect for holidays, keep the kids entertained at a party and can even be DIY'ed, if you're so inclined. Here are some of our favorites.


Pomegranate by Anandamayi Arnold exclusively at Tail of the Yak in Berkeley.

You may remember these Meri Meri Easter bunnies from our party.

This guy would have been a perfect addition to our Swan Guide.
