spring fun!

Wednesday brings a delightful surprise:

A new take on the Easter basket. Again, plant your grass early! Ingredients: Pail from Michaels, fabric scrap, doily, tag and stamps, grass seed and soil. A great craft for kids—decorating the container and planting seeds. I also think this would be fun for children to-old-to-hunt, maybe with money or a gift inside the egg. Who wouldn't love
a grass-grown basket?


sophisticated chic

Tuesday is all about the classy hostess:

Any fans? I love this one. The style is very Paloma's Nest, simple and sweet. The egg is from Hobby Lobby (for $1.30!) and I used a small alphabet stamp set for the name. So many possibilities! I just cut up fabric I had on hand that matched a flea market vintage plate. Super cheap. Super customizable. Super awesome.


playful garden

A week of celebration is upon us and I am so excited to share my place settings with you! Today we have your Monday serving of veggies:

Easy peasy place setting. The orange pail is from Michaels, and I wrote the name on
a popsicle stick with a fine point sharpie. Ideally, you would plant your grass early enough for growth by Easter. I cheated and bought a grass-like plant at a garden shop. Terra cotta pots would work well for this and maybe a bunny accent. You could even experiment making other vegetables, perhaps? I thought it would be super fun for kids, and adults too.


sneak peek

Spring fever is rampant today! The late posting is due to some seriously great projects that are coming soon. Speaking of which, here is a small nibble of the coming week:

Easter is one week away! One of the most treasured celebration traditions is a large family meal. This fueled my inspiration for a special week of posting // Easter Dinner Place Settings {with each day being a different theme.}

So have a great weekend of anticipation! And don't forget the deadline for my giveaway is almost here—don't miss out people.


the fun begins

I get the privilege of throwing a bridal shower for a wonderful friend, and I am more than excited to start planning. I wanted to share some of my research and prep you for the fun that will be following.

There will be some great diy to share in the upcoming weeks. Does anyone have any fun tips for throwing a shower?! This will be my first one and I need all the help I can get.

more irish fun

A fun followup as promised. Here we have Guinness cupcakes and homemade Irish cream, with fun accents that I added to my shop.

The recipe came from Big City, Little Kitchen and the tutorial for Irish cream was featured on Style Me Pretty.

The cupcake shamrocks were a little time consuming, but will be fun for the St. Patricks Day get-together, and I had plenty left over. If you haven't had your Irish fill yet, do not fret. I will post one more followup with the full tutorial with the free recipe tag download.


baby time

How amazing is this adorable bib & burp cloth from The Fresh Stitch?!

I bought it for a baby shower gift and also made some pink cookies.

Yummy! And these would also be fun to make for upcoming Valentines Day, I just need to make sure I don't eat them all first.
