Small Space: Kitchen Renovation

Blinds.com

This kitchen renovation has been a long time coming. We have a very small kitchen with pretty poor lighting. It always seemed a little sad and drab. A huge part of the problem was our metal, mini-blinds. Yes, like the ones in a college dorm room. They were very fragile, difficult to work with, and cheapened the whole space. Luckily, Blinds.com came to my rescue! Our new blinds elevate the space, keep a clean look, and a perfect for our small windows. You can bet I’ll be spending more time in the kitchen now.

Royal Wedding Inspired Bouquet

Royal Wedding Inspired Bouquet

Wedding season is in full swing! Yes, we’re still riding that royal wedding wave and we’re not ashamed (clearly!). The flowers had to be my favorite part of the royal wedding of Harry and Meghan. Those flower arches were absolutely dreamy outside of St. George’s Chapel. We loved the lush and overflowing greenery and the all-white color palette. Meghan’s bouquet, in contrast, was much more restrained. She held a very petite and lovely bouquet of flowers in an all-white color scheme. Though I tend to agree with the ‘more is more’ mantra, the simplicity of this bouquet is so stunning! We researched each flower in her bouquet in order to create a very similar paper replica. Did you know it’s tradition for royals to include a sprig of Myrtle in their bouquets? It represents love and started with the wedding of the eldest daughter of Prince Albert and Queen Victoria.

Rainbow Lawn Makeover

Listen, I wouldn’t call myself an “outdoorsy” person per say, but I LOVE a well-manicured lawn and garden and I LOVE getting my hands dirty gardening. Has anyone been to the garden at Giverny, because that is the dream! Being surrounded by flowers is my ultimate happy place. I jumped for joy when Troy-Bilt asked us to be a part of their Flip the Yard Campaign! I know that landscaping can be a bit intimidating, so I wanted to show a simple way to add some whimsy and curb-appeal to your yard without enlisting a whole crew. This yard was certainly not terrible, but there were a few parts that were not as well-kept and lackluster. We tidied up our edges, banished the weeds, and planted loads of peonies for a fresh, clean slate. Then for the grand finale, we used mowing patterns to create a giant rainbow across the lawn! We like to call it Lawn Art, our newest obsession.

Check out the whole transformation and see what tools we used to create this Lawn Rainbow Makeover!

Floral Number Birthday Cake TopperIn case you didn’t know: June is the unofficial birthday month! At least here at the Lars Studio 🙂 Four members of our team have June Birthdays! Where are all my Geminis at?! Queen Elizabeth also officially celebrates her birthday in June. The royal affair is known as the Trooping of the Colours. This grand celebration includes the royal guard, a procession for the Queen, and the gathering of the royal family. Which means we’ll get to see the newlyweds again! Any guesses on what Meghan will wear?

If you happen to be celebrating any birthdays this month, or this summer, this Floral Numbers Birthday Cake Topper is a sweet way to honor them! Simply mold wire into the number you want and cover with fringed crepe or tissue paper! Tiny paper flowers make the numbers appear to be blossoming vines!
