This year for our lars costume we settled on simple… with a twist! I have always loved the simplicity of the classic sheet ghost costume, not to mention the quick, easy and inexpensive nature of it. But it has never really been in Lars fashion to follow the rules, which is why we turned to shaking things up and coloring our classic ghost costumes to fit our love of rainbows! Read on →
I’m sure we’re not the only ones here who anxiously await the arrival of the Met Gala yearly. This year, when Anna Wintour announced the Camp theme, we knew we were in for a show (even though honestly, it’s how I would love to dress every day of the year). But boy it was an even better show than I could have imagined. I could take hours to discuss our favorite looks, who really embodied “camp” or the costumes that just left us a little confused, but I would rather just get to the point. Jasper as Jared Leto… Camp Themed! Dun dun dun!! Who wore it best? I’m clearly biased, but can you blame me? A baby in a wig… carrying a doll with a wig…? Sorry Mr. Leto, we think we’ll call this one a win for Jasper!

In another life, I think I should have been an architect. Or at least just an arch-themed one. You may have noticed by now that I have a bit of a thing for balloon themed arches. Lest we forget the flamingo balloon arch, the Rainbow arch, the heart arch…I think you get it, I love a good arch!
Of course, the problem with creating is that as soon as you finish one, you just want to do another, and I’ve had a hankering to make a new one as of late. As it turns out, our friends at Michaels were craving something colorful as well, so we teamed up to bring you what might just be one of my favorite arches yet. Behold, the Rainbow Pumpkin arch!

Have you ever heard of Day of the Dead Ofrendas? If you’ve seen the movie Coco, you probably get the gist. Ofrenda means ‘offering’ in Spanish and is a display set up to remember and honor your ancestors. The ofrenda consists of several components including photos of past loved ones, candles, fruits and sweets, flowers, papel picado, and more. It serves as a chance to welcome those ancestors who have passed back into your home and heart. Not to mention it creates the most beautiful display overflowing with flowers and foliage! We’re creating a modern-day take on the Ofrenda with foraged greenery, one that you can easily recreate and keep up all month long! This is my ideal kind of holiday decor, not to mention the sentimentality of it is so special!
Recently, Paul and I completed our 23andMe DNA tests, something I’ve been wanting to do for ages, and we are now anxiously awaiting our reports. With the Halloween season upon us, what better way to celebrate and learn more about my family history than with my very own ofrenda! This display is the perfect way to decorate for the season, but also a wonderful chance to learn more about yourself and your heritage. Win win!
