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.
These DIY submerged centerpieces are simple to create and add a wow factor to your events or gatherings. Check out the easy how-to below!
Lately, I’ve been obsessed with having fresh flowers around my house. I tend to find myself picking up fresh bouquets from the grocery store and finding new places to put them all the time. And the same goes for events and get-togethers. I always love having fresh bouquets and arrangements around for everything from a simple girl’s night to an elegant dinner party. If you love the look of fresh flowers, but are a little intimidated to try out your own arrangements, these DIY submerged centerpieces are going to be right up your alley!
Sometimes, the thought of putting together your own floral arrangement or floral centerpiece can be a bit overwhelming and you might not exactly know where to start, but I think that I can confidently go into today’s post and say that this will be the easiest floral centerpiece you guys will ever make. You can’t really mess this up and the end result is simple, yet stunning. These DIY submerged centerpieces are one of my fave (and easy!) ways to dress up a table!
Is it just me, or does this week seem to be going by unusually fast? I’m consistently seem to be a day behind and I’ve been struggling with keeping track of which day I’m waking up to. I’m just going to blame my loss of sanity on the crazy schedules that I’m living in right now. Work schedules, blog schedules, and personal schedules all see to be all over this place this month with the busy holiday events that are taking place.
If you’re living in temporary madness like me, it could be hard to put together details for your own little get together, but I’m sharing a super easy tutorial today that you can literally forget to do until the day you need to decorate. (It’s that quick and easy!)
It’s one thing to think about the decor for your home, or table, but there’s an easy way you can bring a little bit of “festiveness” (is that even a word?) to your party chairs too!
These easy holiday chair wreaths are simple to make, only use a few supplies (3!) and you can find the greenery in your own backyard!
I’m such a sucker for holidays and the traditions that go along with them. I definitely drive my family crazy with the jam packed calendars that I try to fill with everything I can to get the most out of the season. Yep, I definitely annoy them, but oh, well, they will thank me later, right? 😉 I’m also always on the hunt for new traditions that I can add to my list. Crazy, yes. Festive, absolutely.
One of those things that I’ve recently discovered is orange clove pomanders. They are so pretty and I never really realized how easy they were to make, until this year!
I’m always looking for simple ways to dress up my home for the holidays and I wanted to create a fun focal point and centerpiece for my table that is going to last for the whole season. Don’t get me wrong, I love fresh flowers, but after a week or so, they usually loose their luster and I wanted something to last until New Years!
Once I found out how fast and easy the pomanders were to make, today’s post was born.
I paired some fake greenery, oranges, and a few pine cones together and created an orange clove pomander centerpiece that is the perfect holiday treat for my table, and I did it for about $12. Not too shabby and it’s pretty gorgeous if you ask me.
Of course, I snatched it up and began envisioning all of the things I could do with it.
At the top of my list…? A “bubbling” witches brew Halloween floral arrangement!
I might have even been known to take a trip to the local grocery store to buy myself my very own cake. For no reason. This may have happened on multiple occasions too. (No, I don’t eat the whole cake. And come on, no judgement).
Another one of my favorite things is giving a normally boring store bought cake a pretty little makeover.
We’re now combining cake and a makeover. What is better than that?!
If you need to make a cake for a party, birthday, or get together, I am all for a homemade cake, but sometimes it’s easier and such a time saver to order from your local bakery or grocery store instead. Plus, you have some insurance for if those cake skills of yours end up lacking on the day of the party. 😉
And did you know that you can order a plain white cake (or any color) from the bakery? You don’t have to order one from those party books!
You can dress up a plain cake with a fun topper (like this one I shared here), but it’s just as easy to create a really memorable and gorgeous topper with fresh flowers, like the pros!
Today, I’m going to show you how to create a DIY fresh floral cake topper using only $10 worth of pretty blooms!
No, I don’t want the hubs getting me flowers each week, but I love to have fresh flowers on my table when I have company over or put together a dinner party.
It’s a simple way to bring the outdoors in and make things seem fresh. And not to mention they’re gorgeous. That doesn’t hurt either!
But, there’s only one problem. They’re expensive! They can really put a serious dent in your bank account if you order flowers from the pros for every get-together you have.
So, how do I fix that little problem…?
I make my own arrangements with grocery store flowers!
They are super cheap, easy to find, and you can make arrangements that are a cinch to put together too.
These mini floral arrangements cost me about $5 total to make and they are so cute!
