Woolly Cute Little Lamb Easter Party

Hippity-Hoppity Easter is on it's way...but this year we are giving the Easter Bunny a much-needed break and letting this "woolly" cute flock of sheep shine with a woolly cute Little Lamb Easter Party.   I have so many fond memories of holiday traditions and have made it a goal to make sure my children have the same happy memories.  Easter is one of those holidays where I can vividly recall special activities and moments, like the panoramic Easter eggs my mom would make and the … [Read more...]

Modern Farmhouse Spring Mantel

This year started off kind of slow, but now I feel like things are moving at warp speed.  Yesterday was the first day of spring and Easter is just around the corner.  My brain is having a hard time catching up to everything moving so quickly, but fortunately I teamed up with Oriental Trading a few weeks ago to create a beautiful Modern Farmhouse Spring Mantel that's perfect for Easter too. My living room is one of my favorite spots in my house, especially after we added shiplap to … [Read more...]

Lucky St. Patrick’s Day Mantel Decor

One of my favorite spots in our house is the giant shiplap wall in my living room.  It was one of the first major DIY home improvement projects my husband and I tackled when we bought our new house, and this 20 foot wall makes a big impact.  It's also one of my favorite places to decorate during the holidays.  I love being able to change out my holiday decor above the fireplace and brighten things up with simple and easy decor.  I recently teamed up with my friends at … [Read more...]

Rock Candy Rainbow Donuts

It has been raining here non stop.  I seriously can't remember the last time we saw the sun, which is quite frankly starting to make me go bananas.  I don't think I would handle living in a climate where there are gloomy skies and rain all the time, this girl needs sunshine!  But then again I'm reminded of that old saying "you can't have a rainbow without a little rain", and I realize sometimes you need a good storm to see the bright beginnings.  But, while I am waiting on … [Read more...]

“You Stole a Pizza My Heart” Valentine’s Day Pizza Party

One of the things I remember most about my childhood is how my mom would always create fun themed events for all of the holidays.  I don't remember eating out much as a kid, but I remember the themed "restaurants" my mom would create at home to celebrate everything from Chinese New Year to Valentine's Day.  This year I'm channeling my uber creative mom and serving up lots of love with a fun family-friendly "You Stole a Pizza My Heart" Valentine's Day Pizza Party. I've teamed up with … [Read more...]

Mistletoe and Margaritas Holiday Party

This month I'm in charge of hosting our supper club and I am so excited for our celebration this week I can hardly wait.  I love entertaining any time of the year, but hosting celebrations during the holidays is like the Super Bowl for an avid entertainer like myself.  It's when you get to go big and pull out all the show stoppers, or get creative and try something new.  Which is exactly what I did with this year's Margaritas and Mistletoe theme. I teamed up with my friends at … [Read more...]
