Tomorrow is National Beer day and barbecue season is going to be here before we know it! Today’s DIY project is going to make sure you are prepped and ready for your next beer adventure and will make you the hit of your next party too. BYOB never looked this good before! [Read more…]
It has taken me every ounce of self control to cut soda out of my everyday life and replace it with water. It’s also taken about 5 years to actually do it. (Yes, I already know I am crazy. Yes, I ask myself why I do it everyday. Blame my sister).
Obviously, most of us already know about all of the great benefits that water offers, but there’s still just something so boring and plain about it.
Because I have quite a bit of experience with camouflaging my water now and also because warmer temps are right around the corner, I thought I’d share some easy ways to dress up your glass of H2O with easy flavored ice cubes!
Easter is Sunday and for me it’s all about the food. (Is that bad to admit…? I’m going for honesty here).
Our family usually plans for a big brunch (my fave) but depending on your traditions, this easy appetizer recipe could be just the thing you need to keep those hungry guests happy while you get your dinner prepped.
Spring is here and Summer is right around the corner. And with warmer weather comes more houseguests! Wedding season, vacations, holidays and events all seem to be more plentiful when the sun is shining and the weather is warmer.
When entertaining houseguests, I like to do fun little things to make them feel more welcome. If you’ve ever stayed at another person’s home it can be a little awkward, so I try to do things that are unexpected, but thoughtful.
Welcome baskets with some of their favorite items, cozy slippers, or even warm cookies waiting for them when they arrive are all great ideas, but I really love something that’s even more personal.
These DIY personalized pillowcases are a fun way to add a little personality to your guest room by adding your guest’s names to their pillows! They’re great because they can be taken home with your guests when they leave too!
Is it just me or did this week just seriously draaaag! It’s the WORST!
Things are looking up though, because the weekend is here and hopefully you’re going to mingle with some friends and family! (Or just spend the entire weekend inside, catching up on The Walking Dead and eating mini Cadbury Eggs…not that I know anyone that does that or anything).
I really appreciate the little things and unexpected details at a gathering and the DIY cactus and chalk place cards that I am sharing today will really up the cuteness factor on your next tablescape. These little guys also double as favors too, which is killer! I love when you can get double duty out of a party detail and have one less thing to worry about!
Usually, when I host a get-together, I struggle and spend a majority of my time trying to figure out what cocktails to serve on the menu. What type of liquor to serve, what pairs well with the meal, the type of event I’m hosting, and what variety of options I should have available. That’s a lot to wrap your head around and it can be a bit overwhelming sometimes…right?! One of my go-to’s is this super easy coffee shooter recipe!
Guys, I. Love. Sprinkles.
In case you were wondering, the best combination at Cold Stone Creamery involves Sweet Cream ice cream, cookie dough, Kit Kat, and SPRINKLES.
But back to the sprinkles…
I’m a big believer that sprinkles make just about anything better. Including Easter eggs.
Sprinkle Easter eggs….? Duh. Of course.
They are bright, colorful, and just plain fun. And who doesn’t love sprinkles? (If you don’t, I am questioning your sanity).
I’m a sucker for sweets. I don’t try to deny it. I own it. And just about everyone else in my life already knows it.
Me and sugar are besties and have been for years. It’s a love/hate relationship, but somehow the sugar always wins…go figure.
I usually don’t discriminate against different types of sugar, but if you add multiple chocolatey layers, soft marshmallow, and gooey caramel together, you’ll have these dipped marshmallows pops and one happy camper.
Not only are these triple dipped marshmallow pops delicious, but they’re also the perfect treat to give out as party favors too!
