Valentine's Day 0

Every year, on Valentine’s Day, when I was little, I always got a small bag of goodies, like candies or a stuffed animal or costume jewelry, from my parents. It wasn’t a lot or anything fancy, but it made the day a little more fun and special for me. My mom always had a plethora of heart items decorating the house, and it made the holiday more fun. I know Valentine’s Day can be slightly overrated, but I’m not going to complain about a holiday centered around candy and love. It also gives us another excuse to decorate. And don’t we all love to get festive and decorate?
For those of you who are suckers for everything Valentine’s Day, I say, go all out. Hang a hundred heart garlands, spread little XO confetti on every surface, and make sure all the tables are adorned with pink and red centerpieces.
We do have some really cute things in our shop, for Valentine’s Day, to make your life a little easier when it comes to decorating.
Or just shoot us an email and we’ll make something custom for you!
Not into the typical Valentine’s Day decor?
Decorate with greenery! I’m sure this could be an easy DIY with some wire and faux vines and flowers from Michael’s. This one is definitely going on my to-do list.
Here I go with more easy DIYs. Paint some cheap vases from Home Goods, (seriously go to Home Goods; they’re amazing), and stop by Michael’s to grab some flowers. Easy peezy.
So get to decorating, beautiful people. It’ll be here before you know it. And even though Valentine’s Day may be a very commercial holiday, I still really feel the love during that time of year. (Cue Billy Mack, in Love Actually, singing “love is all around me.” The real version. Not his Christmas one.)

Time Flies Party Theme Must Haves! 0

Well, it is official, take little kids on an airplane to Disney World and they’ll think the best part of the trip is the plane ride itself. I don't feel that this obsession is ending soon, so there may be an airplane themed party in our future, and what could be more fitting as time really does fly when they are so little!

Fighting Winter 0

I spent the first 20 years of my life living in south Texas, so that makes me the least equipped to deal with cold weather. I don’t like being cold, and I don’t look forward to extended periods of cloudy skies in the winter, but I've learned a bit of decor can help turn my gloom into glory!

Make Your Kids' Table Shine!

Make Your Kids' Table Shine! 0

Having a kid’s table for the upcoming holidays is a super easy way to keep the little ones entertained, at least long enough for you to catch up with your favorite cousin. If you’re the one with children, or you’re just the host with children coming over, having an activity plan for the kiddos will make your, and the kids’, holiday, more fun and less hassle.

  • Pick up a roll of butcher paper, and cover the table in it. Let the kiddos draw all over it, and create their Picasso-esque masterpieces. It will be the most fun, throw away, tablecloth you ever have.
  • Put out a bowl of Legos, hot wheels, plastic animals, or any other small, cheap toys for those little hands to play with after they cover the paper in drawings.
  • Gift wrap a box of crayons for each kid who will be attending the gathering. They’ll have their own set to draw with, and getting to unwrap something is always super exciting!
  • Leave out a bowl of grapes and crackers on the table. The kids can grab snacks on their own, and you can stay sitting down, talking family drama with that favorite cousin.
  • When the butcher paper runs out, the Legos gets boring, and the grapes are all gone, have some festive coloring pages on hand to extend activity time. There are a million free ones out there; just do a quick Google search!

Along with all that fun stuff, you have to decorate the table too! Head over to our shop and grab some wintery centerpieces and cover your table in our confetti!
