the perfect bridal shower favor – diy mason jar soy candles

Mason Jar Candles

Bridal shower favors (and baby shower favors) range from really cute to really tacky, from useful to useless. They definitely are not a necessity, but when the showers are small enough, they are nice-to-haves. That is only if they are along the lines of the really cute and useful type of favors. Or if they are edible ;) I think mason jar soy candles have topped my list for favors from now on. I've seen tons of instructions out there but I used my dear bloggy friend, Tiffany from Living … [Read more...]

welcome baby – pink and gray baby shower decorations

Happy Monday folks! Today is my first day at my new job and I'm actually in route to Denver until Friday. I have a week of meetings which should keep me on my toes for my first week on the job.

If you follow me on Facebook or on Instagram you may have seen a few sneak peaks. On Sunday, I finalized the pink and gray baby shower decorations I have … [Read more...]

wedding place cards – elegant and easy

Weddings! I love them but I am thankful I never had to get married again...fingers crossed that after 11 years together we are in the home stretch ;) One of my dear friends is getting married on Saturday here in South Florida. Planning a wedding is not fun but planing it from afar makes it worse. She panicked on me a few weeks ago and mentioned that she still didn't have wedding place cards. I calmed her down and promised to help her out since she has been in New York this entire time. We … [Read more...]

yellow and gray bridal shower -a sneak peek

First off, thank you so much for the support on the career changes going on around here. I really appreciate it. I'll be back to normal after a few more days of rest, wine and cuddles with my furry crew. Second, I wish I had the photos taken at the yellow and gray bridal shower to share but since they haven't made it my way yet, you'll have to deal with my iPhone photos for the time being. I was hired to take on a few decorations for bridal shower being hosted at a friend's house. What? I got … [Read more...]

a crafting challenge – crepe paper garland

A few weeks ago, a few bloggy friends decided to form a group to support and challenge each other. We thought it would be fun to do a regular post making a craft out of the same material just to see how we would each interpret the challenge. Our first material was crepe paper. When I think of crepe paper, my mind automatically goes to crepe paper streamers. What I wanted to try out was making a crepe paper garland. After all, isn't crepe paper the same as tissue paper? After a bit of research, I … [Read more...]
