I’m flying out to sunny LA today to celebrate my little sister’s birthday. She’s turning the big 3-0 and we’re celebrating with surf, sand, sips, and some fun adventures along the way (like a wine safari…who knew?!) Bring on the palm trees! Because I’m feeling a little tropical lately, I wanted to share an easy way to bring a little tropical flair to your next event. These DIY fruit vases make the prettiest little table centerpiece when lined up together, or a fun statement when displayed apart. However you choose to display them, they’re so much fun!
If you’re in charge of hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year you have either not given any thought to the centerpiece for your table, or you’ve given it too much thought and stressed about what you’re going to do. Whichever scenario you might fall into, I’m sharing a stunning, simple, and oh, so easy, DIY Thanksgiving apple centerpiece that will turn any table into a showstopper.
With a few natural elements that you can find at your local grocery store and in your own yard, this rustic and unexpected centerpiece is a nod to that crisp Fall weather that I want to hang onto as long as possible!
Summer is finally here and I can’t wait to start planning a summer picnic! Today, I’m sharing tips and tricks to make your own summer picnic a success!
The sun is out, the temps are rising, and the picnic baskets are coming out! One of my favorite things about summer is spending time outside. (And you can bet that includes picnicking!) Today, I’m sharing some fun and easy tips to help you plan the perfect summer picnic and tomorrow I’ll be sharing some fun printables and an easy DIY to help take your picnic game to the next level. 😉
It’s finally FRIDAY! I plan to do absolutely nothing this weekend, except for spending the days in my pajamas and waking up with just enough time for brunch. These cold days are really not my cup of tea (why do I live in Utah again?) and just make me want to snuggle up indoors!
If you’re anything like me, at least you’ll have enough time to do some crafting while hibernating! And I have the perfect project for you to do just that.
It’s been a week full of gilded DIY’s and I’m rounding out the week with the last project I created for the gold Thanksgiving tablescape that I shared earlier. (Find it here).
This DIY harvest centerpiece was created using a very common item found in the local grocery store….and it’s not a pumpkin!
I definitely look forward to all of the lazy traditions we have as a family. We usually head to our family home is St. George, a city father south (and usually a few degrees warmer than Salt Lake!). We spend the long weekend, sleeping in, making Thanksgiving dinner, and Black Friday shopping our little hearts out! Call us crazy, but we even head into Las Vegas on Saturday to find even more deals. We’re a shopping family, what can I say. Do you guys join in on the Black Friday craziness at all? I think my husband has the right idea…he stays in bed and does all of his shopping online!
Either way, we always start out our shopping adventures with Thanksgiving dinner around the table as a family. It’s one of my husband’s favorite parts of the holiday and one that really brings everyone together.
If you happen to be hosting dinner this year, maybe even for the first time, I’m sharing a super easy way to decorate your table using basic items that you can find at your local craft store and grocery store!
This gold thanksgiving tablescape is the perfect combination of rustic and glam and is a cinch to put together!
This year was the first year that I started an herb garden and it was so nice having fresh herbs when I needed them, or when I didn’t realize I needed them until after I had already started cooking 😉
But before I’m ready to say goodbye, I wanted to get a little more use out of them before the snow hits!
Herbs are already so pretty and fragrant and a lot less expensive that traditional flowers, so why not use them as a centerpiece for your next dinner party or gathering?
That’s exactly what I did when I created this herb tablescape design that was a cinch to put together and looks elegant and polished too.
I might not have a beach close by, but that sure didn’t stop me from tapping into my nautical side to create today’s tablescape inspiration.
If you’re like me and the closest thing to a beach near you is a man-made reservoir, you have to create your own little piece of ocean side paradise and it’s actually pretty easy to do!
It wasn’t long ago when paper plates came in a variety of basic (and plain) colors and that was about all you could find. If you found a color to match your party theme, that was already a win! But the typical paper party plates have definitely gotten an upgrade as of late and I’m sharing a few of my favorite finds today!
