We’re having a…

The House That Lars Built Brittany Jepsen gender reveal

Listen, I was very hesitant to do a gender reveal video, or any type of videos for our new baby, but I learned that the creator in me can’t stand the thought of letting awesome ideas pass me by. If you can’t make fun videos for a baby, when can you?! Plus, I LOVE surprises! And this is a pretty good one.

So here’s how it all went down. I told Paul, aka: not-an-Instagram-husband, that there’s a thing called “gender reveal videos” and he was like, “no” and I was like, “how about you choose whatever it is that we do and he was all “ok, we hike to the top of a mountain and then there you will find out” knowing full well that the only way to get me to the top of the mountain is to blackmail me with releasing private/exciting information.

My friend, Jenner Brown, was kind enough to get on board film it for us. Here’s how it went.

How to create a gallery wall to go with your TV

How to create a gallery wall to go with your TVLast month I shared with you my new TV, which is a camouflaged piece of art and you, rightfully so, went bananas, just like I did. I love my TV so much. I’m so pleased every time I walk in the door and look at it. It’s beautiful. We’ve been living in our apartment since we moved to Utah 4 years ago and I had been wanting to do something fun on the wall where it now sits. Originally I placed a row of bookshelves along the 15′ wall and thought I’d place some oversized pieces of art on it. I don’t know if you have the same problem, but I love the idea of accruing artwork from various places around the world that each tell a wonderful story of an adventure I’ve been on, but when it comes down to it, I rarely buy artwork when I travel because it’s super annoying to travel, not to mention unsafe and customs and tariffs and who even knows what. Well, like I mentioned, it’s been four years now and I had nothing on my walls as of a month ago. I knew I wanted something impactful to show you to go with the TV since the magic of it is that it does look like a piece of art, so I worked with Minted to help me create a beautiful gallery wall and you know what? They totally delivered. And today I’m showing you how I made it work, because it’s like one giant real-life puzzle. Let’s go!How to create a gallery wall to go with your TV Read on →

How to grow a garden even when you think you can’t

Lars in the garden

Like a proud mother, I want to show off my babies: my small but delightful-to-me garden. It’s small, but makes me so happy. And this comes from someone who knew not too much about gardening and didn’t know I could get so much from such a small space. But let me start at the beginning if you’re just joining in on reading Lars.

Read along for my tips on how to create a garden even if you think you can’t!

DIY Balloon Garden

Spring blossoms are a huge source of inspiration here at Lars, especially when my garden is overflowing with blooms! Is there anything better than a space filled with fresh blossoms? No sir, there’s not. Unfortunately, that can cost a pretty peony… I mean penny. But, that wasn’t going to stop us from creating a magical garden indoors. Consequently, we turned to one of our favorite mediums: Balloons! As a result, we created a DIY Balloon Garden! (and pssst: The Wall Street Journal just caught onto the balloon moment!)

Simple, eye-catching, cheap, and whimsical, it makes the perfect backdrop for a party or shower. It’s easy to create and just as easy to take down. All you need is an assortment of skinny balloons, commonly used to create balloon animals. We were pretty heavy handed when it came to the number of balloon flowers, but go big or go home, right?!  At the end of the gathering, let everyone take one or a bunch home!
