Happy Mother’s Day

Sunday is Mother’s Day and we all have a mother or are a mother or know a mother we love and appreciate. So make sure they feel loved with a little something special, DIY or store bought, it won’t matter as long as they are appreciated.

Wrap it Up

Baker’s twine is the cutest thing ever. I want to wrap everything up in it. And you can! That is the amazing thing about it. It is so fun and can be used anywhere! It dresses up anything you wrap it around. It just makes anything more lovely and fun and fabulous.

DIY Holiday Crafts and Gifts

I may have mentioned my thoughts on DIY a time or two on this here blog. Keep it simple and don’t do too much. However, when it comes to the holidays. I think it is a great time to make some gifts or adorable decor with or without your gifts or better yet, decor as gifts.

DIY Do’s and Dont’s

1. DO DIY – it can add a beautiful, personal touch to your event
2. DO ask for help – DIY doesn’t have to be JUST the Y, ask your bridesmaids to help, delegate, it can be fun
3. DON’T get in over your head – one or two easy items can add a wonderful touch, more than that and you are spending all your time crafting, stressed you won’t finish or trying to create something that just isn’t working
4. DO know exactly what you are going to do with each item. What is it’s purpose? Where does it go?
5. DO only one or two items, more could not only be too much it could get kitchy
6. DON’T forget that your time is worth something. Sometimes it can be cheaper to pay someone else to do what you want. That way a. it is done, b. you don’t have to worry about messing it up and c. you get exactly what you wanted
7. DO make sure that someone else knows your decor plan besides you so that they can help put your DIY vision in place come day of
8. DON’T DIY just in case. Having a DIY project on hand that you do not know what you want to do with it, or doesn’t serve a purpose in some way is not worth your time or energy. Only craft what you know you are going to use and for what
9. DO make it personal. Your guests will love a personal touch
10. DON’T sweat the small stuff. If you don’t get a project done or don’t like what you did. Nobody but you is going to know it isn’t there come day of
11. DO have fun with it. And if it isn’t fun, DON’T do it!

Quilting Bee

My grandmother makes everyone in the family a quilt at some point in their life, it is a wonderful tradition that we all cherish. I love my quilt and my daughter’s quilt and they have both already spent many hours cuddled on the couch, spread out on the floor and even at the park.  I love the idea of using quilts in your fall event decor. Use them as a backdrop, linen or to stay warm. They can add such a beautiful, warm, familiar touch to your event.

Knit One, Pearl Two Together

Growing up around a mother who is an avid knitter, I would find myself spending most of my Saturdays amongst the vast colors and textures of yarn at the knitting store. With colors that range from bright fuchsia to mint green, adding touches of yarn to your event is an easy and fun way to have an original décor concept without breaking the bank. Not to mention, yarn adds a touch of warmth and an inviting feeling that you and your guests will always remember.
