5th birthday celebration – streamer birthday decorations

Streamer Birthday Decorations - Directions Not Included

I mentioned a few weeks ago that I'm that sucker of a friend who always ends up doing the decor for parties, wedding, showers and the like. My girlfriend Z, started pinning all sorts of things for her daughter's 5th birthday, which I decided ┬áto tackle myself after a few sweet texts. I shared the colorful fabric wreath, which served as the base for this party decor. This was last-minute crafting at its best so there are no step-by-step tutorials here. I created a streamer backdrop for the … [Read more...]

happy 40th – simple mason jar centerpieces

Simple Mason Jar Centerpieces - Directions Not Included

Hi there! Hope you had a great weekend. We have a bunch of projects in different levels of progress but the weather has not been cooperating. Rain and humidity don't really help with painting, staining and outdoor fun. While we have the house stuff all over the place, at least I was able to get some simple mason jar centerpieces together for a party. … [Read more...]

a sweet treat – honey wedding favors – UPDATED

Honey Wedding Favors

Hey there! Sorry for the lack of posts but the month of March has flown by! Partly because of work and partly because I was helping one of my best friends with her wedding.

bachelorette weekend favors – diy hangover kit

DIY_Hangover_Kit_4

Since I know we are going to get our drink on this weekend in NYC to keep ourselves warm (at least that will be my excuse!), I put together these DIY hangover kits for the girls. My bestie that was married last month had them for her out of town guests. I thought it would be a fun addition to my bachelorette weekend favors. I purchased these little muslin bags on Amazon for cheap. There are tons of places you can get muslin bags in bulk from but Amazon was fast and easy. I used a simple … [Read more...]

bachelorette party favors – weekend welcome bag

Bachelorrete_Party_Favors_1

Next month one my besties is tying the knot here in Miami. For her bachelorette party this weekend, we settled on New York since she lived there for years, many of the girls are still local, and it always is a good time. A few of us are not local so we are flying in and staying in a hotel together for the weekend. What better excuse to get adorable weekend welcome bags together as ┬ápart of the bachelorette party favors. I pulled together some cute (and inexpensive) girly items for our … [Read more...]

my very first attempt at wedding planning – our diy wedding

DIY_Wedding2

Weddings have always been one of my favorite events to plan. They are time consuming and stressful but all the DIY touches that you can do just make the day even more special. The first ever DIY wedding I planned was my very own. I think it started the addiction. Of course this was way before I knew about blogging, and Pinterest was not even on the radar. Thinking about it now, that is probably a good thing since I'm sure I would have gone a little nuts. My wallet thanks me. I decided to dig … [Read more...]
