Okay.. so I know what you’re thinking: How is this self confessed party addict who easily drops $50 on a cake stand for one party going to give me party ideas on a budget? Valid point – BUT why I may be a party addict, I am also addicted to a bargain!

If you’re anything like me you love to see how other people decorate their homes. But short of being a peeping Tom (or walking your neighborhood at night and hoping people left their drapes open) how often do we actually get a glimpse of other people’s style? So I’ve decided to share some of our before & after photos from the past year for all of our equally nosey curious reader out there.

We recently had the oppurtunity to style this fun retro Sweets & Soda Shoppe dessert table for a client’s Graduation Party. The family served Root Beer floats from a Root Beer keg and they wanted to incorporate Root Beer Floats into the design of their dessert table, along with the colors of the college their graduate would be attending this fall – silver and purple.
I finally took the plunge and remade my Grandmother’s dining room chairs. I inherited her dining table and 4 chairs years ago from the Grandmother I never met. She passed away when my Mother was young and I never felt right painting her dining set. But they were damaged and faded and they just sat in my garage, which is such a shame since they are such cute chairs. Well, with the discovery of Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint gave me the… Read more »
Because you asked so nicely.. I’m sharing the fonts (free & paid for) I used to create our NEW Birthday “All About Me” Printable Chalkboard Sign that I shared on Facebook recently for all you DIYers!

We celebrated our Father’s Day the day before this year with a small barbecue and beer tasting. The dads got to sit and relax while sampling a selection of Blue Moon Beers. I purchased these mini beer tasting glasses in the Target dollar section. Each dad got a glass and to taste each of the brews. It was a simple last minute addition to our barbecue that added just a little something fun for the men. Printables available in the… Read more »
