We’re deep into the Summer party season and keeping drinks cold always seems to be at the forefront of any party planners mind when you’re dealing with summer sun and 100 degree heat. But using the same old (ugly, sorry, but it’s true!) cooler, gets a little boring and doesn’t exactly omit a party vibe. Today’s project will do both with style! These DIY drink buckets are easy to make, will keep all of those drinks icy cold, and will also do it with a bit more flair!
I don’t think that many people think about ordering a plain white cake from the bakery counter at their local grocery store. They automatically assume that they have to purchase one of the ornately decorated cakes in the cooler section. You know…those ones excessively covered in cheesy character decor and semi-terrible handwritten frosting? (Insert grimacing face emoji here). Granted, those grocery store character cakes do have a time and place at some events and gatherings, but, it is totally possible to eliminate A LOT of the work that goes into baking your own cake by ordering a white cake from the bakery and taking care of the decorating yourself. And did I mention, it’s super CHEAP and saves you a ton of time too? (Which I am ALL about!) For today’s hack, I used an old school candy favorite to transform this cake. This rock candy cake hack couldn’t be simpler guys. But it sure does transform a plain white grocery store cake into a fun little show piece when done.
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!

These DIY diamond wine charms are easy to make, super cute, and can be made in an afternoon. Check out the tutorial!
Believe it or not, I’m a newbie when it comes to the world of wine. I’ve moved onto some more classic whites and have ventured farther than a Moscato or Riesling, but I’m still not a reds fan yet. (I’m working on it!) As I’ve dived deeper into all things grape, I find myself hosting more and more wine nights, researching perfect pairings, and geeking out over wine glasses and other accessories. One of the things that I don’t have yet….? Wine charms! It’s really easy to misplace your glass when you have a few friends over, so I decided to make some fun DIY diamond wine charms for myself!
These edible floral chocolate bars are a cinch to make and would be a gorgeous gift idea too! Check out the easy recipe!
Don’t get me wrong. I like flowers, but I LOVE chocolate. I’ll always pick something edible over something that’s going to wilt and die in a few days. BUT, combine the two together and you have a winning combination on your hands! These edible floral chocolate bars are a CINCH to make, are gorgeous (no, really, I am sharing 8 million photos because they are just too pretty), and would make the perfect gift for mom this mother’s day! They’d also be great to gift to a bestie, or honestly, just to make and enjoy yourself! Who really wants to give these away anyway…? Not me!
Celebrate the mom in your life with these free printable mother’s day notecards, complete with matching envelope liners! So easy!
I hate to admit it, but as I get older, it’s inevitable. Almost everything that your mom told you when you were growing up is actually correct. I know…I don’t like admitting it either. But it’s kinda true. We like to pretend we have all the answers, but our moms actually do. At least, most of the time. (But I still don’t like to admit it when I’m around her).
So it’s only fair that for Mother’s Day, we shower the all-knowing ladies in our lives with a little bit of admiration and maaaaybe even admit that she’s always been right. (And if that’s the route you want to go, I have a notecard for that 😉 )
Today, I’m sharing these free printable mother’s day notecards with you guys. They are fun, pretty, and even come with mismatched envelope liners, which I love almost as much as the cards!
You only need a few simple supplies to pull these DIY jean Easter eggs together and have your eggs end up on the best dressed list this Easter.
Finding a good pair of jeans is HARD. Granted, after searching for 33 years I feel like I’ve finally figured out what I like and what suits my body shape the best, but it takes some serious work! It also feels like a workout when you’re sitting in the dressing room, trying on the 300th pair that still ends up being too baggy in the waist or too tight in the butt. Well, today’s post will eliminate the need for any dressing room frustration, and will just leave you (and your Easter basket!) looking super cute. These DIY jean Easter eggs are fun and give you an excuse to fill up some pockets with a few little extra treats!
