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!

I may be in denial, but….it’s inevitable. We are face to face with back to school season again. Where did the Summer go, guys?! But, regardless of how old I get, I still LOVE shopping for school supplies. I don’t even go to school anymore, but I’m a sucker for cute colored pens! Anyone else? I’m constantly making myself notes and lists to keep on my desk, and wanted a fun way to display them. So, the idea for these DIY concrete note holders was born!
They are modern, easy to make, and fun to customize using brightly colored paint! Because you can customize the colors, they are also easy to incorporate into existing office decor too!
The day and age of liquor bottles on display may be behind us, but I’m really hoping to bring them back. There’s just something so classic about those pretty glass decanters and rocks glasses next to a gorgeous ice bucket on a bar cart. Am I right? Very Mad Men-esque. I love the masculine qualities they evoke and the classy nod they can lend to a gathering! Today’s post, is all about bringing back a classic and updating it with a simple project! These DIY decanter tags are easy to make, really inexpensive, can be done in an afternoon, and look so sophisticated! A simple and fun way to upgrade an existing bar cart, wet bar, or drink display!
I’m a huge donut fan. If I can find a way to include them in my everyday, you know I’m going to take it. So it was only a matter of time before I found a way to incorporate donuts with cake! This easy donut hole cake hack not only saves you time, stress, and a messy kitchen, but it looks and tastes great too!
I can’t believe that we’re even talking about this right now, but Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner! This year has flown by, but I’m not mad that the colder months are almost behind us. (You hear that Utah…? Stop snowing please!) When it comes to Cinco de Mayo, the food and drinks are the most important, right? But you still need some festive decor to get those party guests in the mood for a fiesta! This printable Cinco de Mayo taco banner is a cinch to make and will put everyone in the feasting spirit!
To be honest, it seemed a little silly to write a post about a recipe for DIY simple syrup (which is sooooo easy to make), but after posting a few cocktail recipes in the past, that required the ingredient, I was surprised that I actually received a lot of comments about it. What it was, where to buy it, and how to make your own. So, to make things simpler moving forward, and to prevent you guys from having to search the web for a tutorial, I’m dedicating this post to all things DIY simple syrup!
Despite what the weather channel is forecasting for Utah at the moment, I’m going to push it out of my mind and focus on the fact that the calendar says that it’s supposed to be Spring. Maybe if I believe hard enough, Mother Nature will get the hint and push some of those warmer temps and sunny days my way. But, until then, I’m going to grab some fresh tulips and display these gorgeous DIY ombre bud vases on my counter. They scream Spring and are oh, so easy to make!
I can’t even handle how gorg these little beauties are. I went a little picture crazy on this post, just because I had a really hard time narrowing them down. So you guys will just have to suffer through them along with me, although I don’t think you’ll complain. 😉
I’ve seen similar posts floating around the internet but I wanted to try some floral cubes out for myself, and after making these rose ice cubes, I’m totally jumping on the floral bandwagon. They are just SO PRETTY!
With a little patience and my water trick to help make your finished cubes super clear, you’ll be
smelling sipping on roses in no time.
