DIY Flower Crown

In the spirit of spring and the fact that I love love LOVE flowers, I am going to show you how to make flower crowns! The first time I made this was for a party I did for a friend who was getting married a few years ago. And when I made it, it was a real struggle but then eventually I got the hang of it. I recently did another party for a friend and made these very spring inspired flower crowns! What you need: -Bouquet of flowers (one that includes filler flowers like baby’s breaths) -Floral Wire -Floral Tape -Wire Cutters -Scissors What you do: 1. Select the color combination you prefer 2. Cut the flowers, leaving about 1-2 inches of stem 3. Make little bunches of flowers and arrange them in a pattern you like so it will be easier to tape them on the wire when you are ready 4.…

DIY Tea Party

I am so excited to share today’s post! I’ve been wanting to do a tea party for ages and I finally got a chance to do it a week ago. The weather was great, the sun came out and I felt like I could conquer the world! Does anyone else feel like that when the weather is good? I guess you can say I did the tea party to celebrate the sun! haha (Warning: there will be a lot of exclamation points in this post!!) For it, I made a banner, a few finger foods, set up a table, bought some flowers and put it all together. Flowers literally make everything better in my opinion! If you are ever having trouble setting up for anything, just buy flowers! I like getting them from Trader Joe’s, they are surprisingly affordable and have so much beautiful variety. To set the table, I mostly…

DIY Photo Hanging Idea

Today’s DIY post is inspired by my love for boho and rustic style. It’s quick, easy and very cheap! What you need: -Tree branch(es) -Yarn (white or black looks best in my opinion, but you can do whatever color your heart desires) -Photos (I got mine printed from Walmart.com they are 3×3 squares, and I love them!) -White string, or fishing line, whatever is available -Scissors -Mini clothes pins White string not pictured. What you do: 1. Go outside and find a tree that has some branches you can easily reach and break off. Lay branch out, measure and cut yarn longer than the branch. 2. Lay out yarn according to where you want to tie it on the branch, then tie a knot on each side. 3. Figure out where the middle of the yarn is and start pinning the photos from there. Then pin each photo in alternating sides of the middle…

How to Make a Paper Garland For a Photoshoot

I’m excited to share this post with you as I love making things with paper, I do it a lot!  My love for paper began when I got a job working for a stationery design company and had to make a lot of things by hand. Over the past few years, I’ve learned it’s a lot easier and cheaper to make certain things yourself rather than to buy them! In this post I’ll show you how to make a paper garland that you would pay more than $5 for at a store (for even the simplest one). But before I show you, I want to tell you a little bit about birthday celebrations in my house (because this garland was obviously made for a birthday). Birthdays were never a big deal in my family. Our celebration was my mother making our favorite foods at home and us eating together as a family. There were…

Easy & Affordable Table Setting Idea

Those who know me personally, know that I love getting people together for a meal. In the past when I have parties, my main focus would be on the food (making sure it’s delicious). But recently I’ve also been paying attention to presentation of the meal along with table settings! Last weekend I did a small get together with some friends who live nearby. And for this occasion, I decided to use things I had laying around the house for table setting. I spent absolutely no money, except for buying the ingredients for the food. What you’ll need: 1. paper roll 2. mason jars (or any glass jars laying around the house) 3. greenery from your backyard (or front yard) 4. sharpie What I did: I used a paper roll for the center of the table. I always have this on hand because I like using it for wrapping presents. However, if…
