It’s truly incredible how much our young country has been through after 241 years in existence. Much has impacted our current trajectory, and while most of it is our own doing, we would not be who we are without the support and loyalty of our allies. Through all of our growing pains the people and country of France have been there for us, from acknowledging our sovereignty and becoming a military ally in our fight for British independence, to gifting us our beautiful Lady Liberty over 100 years later. We would not be who were are if it were not for France. I wanted to do a little something different than most blogger’s annual July 4th inspired outfit post, so I hope you enjoy this little French-inspired look on America’s birthday!
A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of entertaining a group of incredible women for a Progressive Brunch. A progressive meal or “Safari Supper” is made of successive courses prepared and eaten at the residence of different hostesses. This involves consumption of one course at each location. Each of us ladies prepared a part of traditional brunch and Ubered from each of our houses to the next, after each course, enjoying the company and styling of each person’s take on a brunch tablescape!
My house was the first stop and I hosted the Mimosa and fruit course! I wanted to share my tablescape with you because I have to show you how easy it is to design a party table without spending a ton of money on theme décor. Every element of the design are DIYs I’ve blogged about previously with a few drugstore Easter isle props thrown in!
How does someone who doesn’t like colors other than black and white celebrate a hue saturated holiday like Easter? They DIY everything in black and white of course!
Being Catholic I love Easter; Couple that with my love of spray paint and you get my version of Easter gifts and décor! I took a plain bunny ears headband ($2) and a plastic bunny container ($2) from Walgreens and gave them a little makeover. Scroll down for instructional photos and a video tutorial 👯
I realize the words “DIY” and “Chanel” aren’t often thought of synonymously but today’s DIY will have you believing it! The ribbon for this tutorial was part of the packaging on a Chanel perfume gift box I received for Christmas last year and I have wanted to DIY something with it ever since!
It’s probably no big surprise to y’all that I dressed as a “Chanel No. 1” from Scream Queens for the first Halloween party of the month! Apparently SQ isn’t a popular costume choice so I had to DIY my entire look from scratch! Here’s a little tutorial on how I made the sparkly pink, monogrammed nurse’s “cap” seen in the latest season.
