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 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”
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”
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”
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”
A friend got engaged and wanted to have a party near Thanksgiving when all her family was in town. So here’s my late fall take on an engagement party!
I tried to incorporate classic fall/Thanksgiving items with the usual glitzy bride decorations.
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”
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”
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”
Here are all the costumes my sister and I have done together.
FRANKENSTEIN + BRIDE OF 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!
