Use Duct Tape as Water Bottle Party Labels
Think about the last great party you attended. What was it that made the event feel special? It’s the details; it’s the tiny things like hanging a garland or bunting or propping up labels by the food on the buffet.
A couple of weeks ago, I spent my weekend imbibing in The Great Atlanta Beer Fest at Turner Field. For a few hours on Saturday, the Atlanta Braves' home field turns into a drinkin', jammin' and beer slammin' beer festival.
The Hunger Games Movie Night and Free Printables
In case you've been living under a rock, let me give you a little recap. The Hunger Games is a super popular book trilogy that was recently (as all successful book releases eventually are) adapted into a movie trilogy. The first film, The Hunger Games, came out in March and killed the box office.
If you're like me, you might have read the books each about 3 times and seen the movie twice in theaters. And you've probably been counting down the days until The Hunger Games is released on DVD (Hint: it's this Saturday, August 18).
But whether you're a huge Hunger Games fan, or watching the movie for the first time, you should definitely make this film the center of your next movie night. Invite a few friends over, pop some popcorn and settle in on the sofa. To help you out, here's some super cute free printables for your party!
Felt Rabbit Place Settings
I am a firm believer that holiday decor doesn't have to be over the top. I mean, if you love decorating for Easter with stuffed bunnies, bright green crinkle grass and plastic eggs, go for it! But it's also OK to have a more understated holiday style. That's why I crafted these felted rabbit place settings. They're festive and fun without screaming "Easter Bunny!" You could even keep these out on the table throughout the year, customizing the colors to match your table scape. They're really easy, too. To get started, you'll need sheets of craft store felt (two sheets for each rabbit), spray adhesive, scissors and either a sewing machine or a glue gun. Oh, and this felt rabbit template right here:

An Engagement Gift Basket
A great friend of mine got engaged recently, and I of course did what every good girlfriend does when they hear news of an upcoming wedding: Go shopping.
Fantasy Oscars Draft Game
What's your favorite season? Spring? Fall? Nope. My favorite season is Award Show season. Not even Pumpkin Spice lattes make me smile like the Grammys, Emmys and Oscars do. That's because I've found a way to make award shows into an
DIY Apothecary Bottles
I love decorating with vintage glass, don't you? Just the other day, I was browsing the aisles of my favorite home store, eyeing some gorgeously girly apothecary bottles. I loved the idea of gifting them to my favorite girlfriends as a little treat on Valentine's Day, but I did not love their price tag. Yikes! Thankfully, my shopping trip that day also took me through the aisles of a home and hardware store, where I spotted some sparkly glass drawer pulls. They were identical to the adornment on the bottle stoppers of those apothecary bottles. I knew I could pull off apothecary bottles as a DIY project.
