When Andrea brought over Kelsey’s cake, I thought it was perfect. It was ombré on the outside (and inside) and had blue pearls on it, perfect for her Little Mermaid theme. Then she mentioned she had to “assemble the cake.” What happened next was culinary magic. Suddenly, we were looking at a beautiful cake, with […]
I can make a wreath, right? I’m sure it’s more time consuming than I have time for, but this season I’m going to make my own fall wreath. I was searching online for some inspiration, and here are some photos of my favorites. I’ll let you know how it all turns out. Wish me luck!
I’m loving the hydrangeas and burlap. (Can’t find image source).
I can’t tell if I like the wreath more, or the door. Source.
Loving the mini pumpkins, $30. Source.
I like how large the flowers are, $70+. Source.
Not really by style, but stood out for being so pretty. Source.
Pottery Barn Harvest Wreath, $99. Source.
There’s a party being planned over here. It’s almost Kelsey’s third birthday party! Seriously. With two kids, you have to start early so I’m putting together all of the party favors. I thought putting the favors in “big kid cups” versus baggies would be fun. Kid goodie bags = sugar, chocolate, stickers and noise makers. Their […]
I finished my gallery wall! Finally. I was on the hunt for “that missing piece” that would complete the wall and this morning, I found two. A letter “C” (for our last name) and a wooden frame. I just spray painted both bronze and mounted them to the wall. Done and done.
Here is the finished product. I really like how this turned out. Pardon the glare. This little nook in our house faces the backyard and today is extra bright and sunny.
Kelsey’s Nana lives one state away so we don’t have the luxury of hugging her every time that we want to. So, we decided to mail her a hug today. I hope she likes it. It’s simple really. Just grab some: Fingerpaint Paper Ribbon Tape Envelope And a loving child to participate Then simply mail your loved […]
I’m going to host an itty bitty baby shower for my friend in the next few weekends. I say “itty bitty” because it’s her second baby and we want to keep it very small, very low-key and simple. Just a few friends. Nothing too elaborate. And it will be from 9am – 11am so the babies can […]
First, let me just say that I am always smitten when I receive a letter from a friend. I’m talking about a real letter. Like, in the mail. Friday I came home to a letter from a sorority sister of mine, Kristin. In October of 2000, we were going through Alpha Phi Initiation. Just before the night began […]
They are done! Even though my husband ate my prototype, I finished making my edible baby shower favors. Here’s how easy it is to duplicate. Grab the following: Pretty paper to match the baby shower theme Butterfly Craft Punch (or any other shape) Mini gift tags (I choose scalloped Martha Stewart tags) Twine Ribbon (thin enough to fit […]
I am making party favors for my sister-in-laws baby shower tomorrow. I’m sure you do this too … before you make 30+ favors, you make a prototype. Meaning, you create one favor to see how it looks. Make edits accordingly, then when you are satisfied, you begin to mass produce. Well … before I order 125 mini “chippers” from Paradise […]
