Wood and Leather Handled Picnic Basket | DIY

 One of my favorite summer activities is packing up a picnic and going to a park to enjoy a fun meal. When Jordan and I were dating, we packed so many picnics to enjoy before going kayaking. I now have a fun picnic basket to take on our picnic dates now! Head over to Glitter Guide for the full tutorial.


DIY Girl's Night

I have been wanting to host a DIY night for a my friends for a while now. I always kept putting it off because I didn't know exactly what we would make and I figured it would take a lot of work to put together (spoiler alert: it was so easy!). Through encouragement from a friend and her opening her home and basically giving me a date to have the party, I planned the event! I am so glad I finally threw this party (with the help of Rachel), it turned out to be a great night and everyone went home with a couple new necklaces that matches their style! 
I wanted the decor to be simple but still pretty. I bought three bouquets of eucalyptus from Trader Joe's and spread them across Rachel's table as well as my Ikea work desk that I brought over from my house. I picked up some colorful bowls from West Elm and paired them with my favorite latte bowls from Anthropologie to store the supplies in. It took only minutes to set up!

 Rachel's home made the perfect backdrop!

 Of course I had to bring over my Message Board.
We kept the snacks simple but delicious. Waffles with lots of topping options, guac (of course), salsa, chips and flavored drinks. They were a hit!

 At each place setting, I personalized a bag for each guest with a fun saying that they could take their necklace home in and use in the future to store jewelry.

Overall, it was a fun night! I feel like I expected it to be difficult to throw this party and honestly it was so laid back. I think when you keep decor and details simple you get to enjoy the night so much more. I can't wait to have another DIY night soon.

I'll be back later this week to show the necklaces we made and how to make them. Stay tuned!


Floral Pineapple Cup | DIY

Have you seen florists using pineapples as vases lately? I love them! If you haven't seen them yet, check out this pin. When I stumbled across these pineapple cups at Dollar Tree, I knew exactly what I needed them for...a floral pineapple cup inspired by the pineapple vases! Its the perfect companion to your long pool days this summer.
 Floral Pineapple Cup DIY

Materials: Pineapple Cup, Faux Flowers, Hot Glue

Process: Separate your flowers from the stems, glue different flowers in place on the top of your cup to form an arrangement. And that's it!

I love how these turned out! These would be so fun to have at a party for a gift for guests to take home. And for about $2....you can't beat that! If you are looking for another pineapple DIY, try this airplant holder. 

Have fun making!
