First Day of Spring Brunch

I celebrated the first day of spring on my balcony sipping mimosas! I set up a lower table with cushions for seats. It was topped with a table cloth, table runner, colorful plates, flowers and a cheese board. I opted for pastels for the place settings and brighter flowers to balance everything out. I madeContinue reading “First Day of Spring Brunch”

St. Patrick’s Day Brunch

St. Patrick’s Day doesn’t have to be all about partying, it can be a *mature* adult brunch too. I set up a cutesy brunch tablescape, perfect for sipping mimosas. I found a green clover/flower-y table runner and topped that with green and white candles. The center piece was a light green plant and I addedContinue reading “St. Patrick’s Day Brunch”

Red Hot Galentine’s Day Party

Another year, another Galentine’s celebration! This year, my theme was “red hot hotties” showcasing some of our celebrity crushes and spicy candy. I tried to keep the colors bright red and pink. A contrast to my pastel theme last year. TABLE TOPI got glitter paper from Michael’s and cut out a bunch of hearts. IContinue reading “Red Hot Galentine’s Day Party”

Krampus Beer Tasting

Another season, another tasting! We gathered as many Christmas/winter themed beers that we could find and set up a tasting with friends. We used the below scoring sheet to rate each beer on whether it was “naughty” or “nice”. Usually I make a key at the top outlining what you should look for in aContinue reading “Krampus Beer Tasting”

Basic Budget Thanksgiving

We hosted a small Thanksgiving dinner party this year. I wanted to use things that I already owned for the table to make things easier and more affordable. I stuck with the typical orange, yellow, red color scheme with pumpkins and a couple turkey nods. I used a yellow table runner and topped it withContinue reading “Basic Budget Thanksgiving”

Outdoor “How Did You Die?” Halloween Party

2020 is the year of outdoor parties so Halloween was no different. We had a small party at our house and made sure to have social distance rules and individual food and drink items. I decided to make it a theme because our friends always have trouble coming up with costume ideas. I chose “howContinue reading “Outdoor “How Did You Die?” Halloween Party”

Halloween Wedding Dinner Party

I got to plan a dream party combining my two favorite things – weddings and Halloween. This couple opted for a smaller home version of their wedding because of COVID. I set up a little dinner party in their living room. I wanted the overall vibe to be “elegant spooky” – I used the colorContinue reading “Halloween Wedding Dinner Party”

Fall Friends Tour Birthday Party

This birthday party works great for COVID times, but would also work during a normal year. The idea is that you take the birthday person to different stops – each one has some surprise guests! Below is the plan that I came up with to celebrate my sister’s birthday this year. PICK UP: 1PM STOPContinue reading “Fall Friends Tour Birthday Party”

Couple/Sister Halloween Costume Ideas

Here are all the costumes my sister and I have done together.

FRANKENSTEIN + BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN*

Frankenstein:
-Hair: Slick back your hair into a low bun. Use a toothbrush with hair spray to get down all the flyaways.
-Makeup: We used this green face paint, but it peeled a little bit too much. I would get the same kind as the white pain below instead. Do thick black eyeliner, eyeliner stitches and black lipstick.
-Outfit: We just got a black blazer from Salvation Army. Then wear a black t-shirt, black jeans and chunky black boots. So easy!
