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!
These DIY submerged centerpieces are simple to create and add a wow factor to your events or gatherings. Check out the easy how-to below!
Lately, I’ve been obsessed with having fresh flowers around my house. I tend to find myself picking up fresh bouquets from the grocery store and finding new places to put them all the time. And the same goes for events and get-togethers. I always love having fresh bouquets and arrangements around for everything from a simple girl’s night to an elegant dinner party. If you love the look of fresh flowers, but are a little intimidated to try out your own arrangements, these DIY submerged centerpieces are going to be right up your alley!
Sometimes, the thought of putting together your own floral arrangement or floral centerpiece can be a bit overwhelming and you might not exactly know where to start, but I think that I can confidently go into today’s post and say that this will be the easiest floral centerpiece you guys will ever make. You can’t really mess this up and the end result is simple, yet stunning. These DIY submerged centerpieces are one of my fave (and easy!) ways to dress up a table!
I’m such a sucker for holidays and the traditions that go along with them. I definitely drive my family crazy with the jam packed calendars that I try to fill with everything I can to get the most out of the season. Yep, I definitely annoy them, but oh, well, they will thank me later, right? 😉 I’m also always on the hunt for new traditions that I can add to my list. Crazy, yes. Festive, absolutely.
One of those things that I’ve recently discovered is orange clove pomanders. They are so pretty and I never really realized how easy they were to make, until this year!
I’m always looking for simple ways to dress up my home for the holidays and I wanted to create a fun focal point and centerpiece for my table that is going to last for the whole season. Don’t get me wrong, I love fresh flowers, but after a week or so, they usually loose their luster and I wanted something to last until New Years!
Once I found out how fast and easy the pomanders were to make, today’s post was born.
I paired some fake greenery, oranges, and a few pine cones together and created an orange clove pomander centerpiece that is the perfect holiday treat for my table, and I did it for about $12. Not too shabby and it’s pretty gorgeous if you ask me.
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!
