BAM! Feels like Summer just hit you over the head when you saw these, right?? Vibrant, big, puffy color--gotta love it! They don't seem too hard to make. Making these is kind of like making half of a tissue pom.
What a great background these would make. Or hang a few on a tree, along the trunk and branches. The colors of these make them perfect for a fiesta. So many possibilities! Find a full picture tutorial at Honestly WTF.
Now that we're experiencing some lovely weather, I can't help but look forward to eating and entertaining outside.

Unfortunately I don't have a "Merry Monday" party for you today. My only excuse is that it was my birthday this past weekend, weather was beautiful and I was a little selfish enjoying both of those things! But I hope this cool tutorial from Our Best Bites makes up for it. She found a genius way of using silk ties to decorate eggs. An easy way to add a much more sophisticated look to your eggs at Easter time. Ideal for centerpieces and sprucing up place settings. Find the full tutorial here.
Don't you wanna' grab one of those NOW??! Fizz drinks are so simple to make. The basic recipe is sparkling water, juice, ice, herbs (optional) and sweetener (optional). But when you let guests crush their own fruit and herbs, and choose their favorite juice to make it, the whole idea takes on a whole new form of entertainment!
Visit Nest of Posies for her Fizz drink ideas and recipes. And why wait for a party? With this great weather we're all having--invite neighbors over this weekend for one! Have a happy!
I think this would certainly help lift my spirits in the morning, looking in this mirror, with this very pretty frame! I love it! And it also works really well as a table backdrop, as done here for Ruffled. Find the full directions here.

I went bananas when I saw this submission in my inbox when I got back from vacation! So much charm in this party: the perfectly decorated goodies, the banner, signage and more. Accompanied with neat little touches like the twine bows on the popcorn boxes, party planner, Alejandra of The Marshmallow Studio, designed a party that delights both kids and adults. Enjoy these photos taken by Iliana Morton Photography. (And make sure to check out sources after the photos.)
Hi everyone! Hope you're enjoying the mild weather everyone seems to be having. Even here in Colorado the forecast is showing 71 degrees on Monday! The kids here are off from school next week, so I'm going to unplug from work and blogging to take the week off as well to do some fun stuff with the family. I'll be back the week of the 19th. Party on!
What is it about a tutu that makes a little girl's eye widen?!
If you're not the baker type to decorate a cake with fondant and swirly rosettes--but you are a crafty DIYer--try adding a tutu to the bottom of your cake for a little girl's party. I can pretty much guarantee she'll gasp when you come out with it singing Happy Birthday!
Are you thinking about starting your crafts for Easter yet? If so, why not start with a real easy project like this egg topiary? If blue's not your color, paint the eggs any color you'd like. Find the full tutorial at Crafting Rebellion.
Here's a colorful way to keep drinks cold during a party. Just freeze balloons filled with water. (Actual water balloons are not recommended, as they are not as strong) Keep some in the freezer, so when the ones in your cooler start to melt, you can quickly replace them. No worry about having enough ice on hand. And it certainly helps to make even your bucket of drinks look festive!
