Paper Bag Portrait Luminaries

Paper Bag Portrait LuminariesNow that October has finally arrived we are ready to cover our houses with all the ghosts, goblins, and ghouls! Much like around Christmas time, I love walking around the neighborhood to check out all the different decorations that will soon greet the Trick-or-Treaters. So with that in mind, we decided to create some paper bag portrait luminaries to line your walkway to welcome all your spooky guests! You’ve probably seen a rendition of paper bag lanterns, but these ones each don an old black and white portrait to give a spooky touch. Think Disney’s Haunted House. With basic white paper bags, a printer, and some tea lights, you can create these easy lanterns and make sure your guests are properly watched over 😉

DIY Floral Ice Cubes for the Fourth

DIY Floral ice cubes

With Fourth of July fast approaching, chances are you’ve got some sort of picnic, BBQ, pool party, or gathering in the works! All of which are great excuses to put a little extra pizazz into your party preparation! Nothing is more refreshing that an ice cold beverage in the sweltering summer heat. So to ensure that your drinks stay frosty and adorable, we’ve got some special DIY floral ice cubes for the fourth! Filled with edible blue and white flowers and garnished with some red berries, these are sure to make any beverage 4th of July worthy. Adding blueberries or raspberries would make another great addition. I’m thinking dropped in some lemonade muddled with berries would be the perfect combination!

Lady Liberty Flower Crowns

Lady Liberty Flower CrownsFourth of July is fast approaching and I’m already thinking about how I’m going to celebrate. Holidays require looking your best, but I’ve never been one to go for the traditional flag t-shirt and denim shorts. This year I looked to Lady Liberty for some patriotic inspiration and came up with some red, white, and blueLady Liberty flower crowns! You can’t look your best without a crown, am I right? Ask any royal out there, and I can assure you they’d agree. With little more than fresh flowers, you can create a headpiece even Lady Liberty would be proud of!

Father’s Day Sport Donuts

Father's Day Sports DonutsAm I the only one that struggles with deciding what to get the men in their life for Father’s Day? When you’re young, a nice hand-drawn picture would do the trick, but once you hit your twenties, that’s not really acceptable anymore. So what do you get a guy for Father’s Day? The problem is, I’ll less familiar with the things that most people associate with “manly” things. I do know, however, that almost all men, with very rare if any, exceptions, LOVE food. In particular, donuts. Donuts decorated like sports? You’ve hit the jackpot. So don’t worry about making a trip to the hardware store and educating yourself on the newest power tools. Just buy some donuts and dress them up a bit! Nestled in a faux-grass lined bakery box and topped with printable sports pennants just for dad, these sport donuts will leave everyone swooning, and your dad drooling!
