Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I could pretty much eat it for every meal with all the savory and sweet offerings. So celebrating Valentine’s with my loved ones with a celebratory brunch seems like the best way to show them how much I adore them! Here are my perfect details with my sample menu:
How was your Christmas? I hope everyone got what they wanted. All I really wanted was snow and some time with the family – and that’s exactly what I got! Now we’re looking to New Year’s and a night in with our closest friends. I’ll be pulling out the monogram glassware to impress the guests 🙂 What are your New Year’s plans?
I really love this time of year. It’s festive and fun and there’s too much eye candy to handle. While I’m shopping for others, I’m taking in all kinds of inspiration for the upcoming year too. Lately I’ve been curating a lot of red. Enjoy the rich colors and themes! Happy Friday, everyone. Graphic and modern cake via Project Wedding
With Thanksgiving and shopping season right around the corner, there’s nothing to get you into the holiday spirit like a little home decor – especially if it’s homemade. Here are three that I’m loving at the moment.
I just stumbled across this wreath and it looks too frilly and sweet to pass up. Thanks to Bon Temps Beignet for this very do-able DIY.
Do you love the expensive look of large, metal zinc letters? Achieve the same gifts with some paper macher letters and some metallic paint! See the full instructions at 346 Living. Pop them over the living mantle or hand out monograms to your friends as favors. So simple and inexpensive!
Are you having people over for dinner and feeling a little shy in the decor and objects department? Don’t fret! Here’s a fabulous recipe for luxurious looking enamel glass from Sugar and Charm. Groyup small vases together in varying sizes and pair with a contrasting color object like piles of fruit.
These also make wonderful housewarming or hostess gifts. You never have to show up empty handed! Happy Friday and crafting this weekend! xo
Make things in advance and wrap them in the bowls they’re going to reheat in. Ovenware products like Le Creuset go from fridge to oven and serve mismatch beautifully.
Easier than keeping flowers alive and pretty enough to eat, place pumpkins or other hearty fruits and vegetables that can double as centerpieces, and later be used for tasty dishes. Pumpkins via The Party Dress
If you’re having more than a handful of people over, doing a seating chart can really help the conversation flow of the evening. You’ll be able to relax more, knowing that your shy cousin isn’t getting bowled over by a boisterous coworker.
Flowers, ornaments, water, candles. What ever you decide to fill it with, a glass cylinder is a simple way to make a big statement on your entryway table or as a centerpiece. I like to keep a few handy under the sink to pull out for all types of occasions. They’re a lifesaver when you need an extra vessel and can serve multiple purposes at a wedding or shower. Here are four of my favorite looks with the inexpensive glass cylinder, in all different sizes too.
