LOVE IS SWEET: COLORFUL CANDY BAR CART

I was so sad when I had to take down the pink Christmas tree, garland and wreath from Treetopia last month so when they asked if I would incorporate the wreath into my Valentine’s decor as part of their Love in All Colors campaign, I was all for it! Instead of going with a normal candy table, I used my bar cart and filled it with the sweetest treats!

The wreath is so pretty on it’s own but I wanted to add in a colorful touch so I cut out paper hearts and used a low temp glue gun to attach to the branches. The great thing about using a low temp glue gun is doesn’t completely bind it together and removes super easily. So the hearts can be removed without damaging the wreath. I added in some disco ball ornaments I had on hand using straightened out paper clips because all my ornament hooks are in the attic.  

For the bar cart, I added a bunch of colorful candy, sprinkles and mini cupcakes. I had some leftover candy shaped balloons from Piper’s birthday party so I added some of those around the cart. I think they look really cute but they also covered up how dirty my office floor is. Win-win!

I really love how the it turned out! Thank you Treetopia for asking me to be part of this campaign. This project totally inspired me to style my pink wreath for other holidays besides Christmas.

Obviously I love balloons for many reasons but most importantly, they add a huge statement and are relatively inexpensive. The bang for your buck is awesome if you ask me!

PIPER'S CANDY THEMED FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY

Two days after Piper’s birthday bash we left for New York and have been gone for almost six weeks on and off. I have a new respect for people who travel all the time for work. I’m still exhausted, everything is a mess and I have a stack of Christmas cards I never opened. But today is my first day in my work routine and it feels sooo good! I’m ready to dive into 2019 and I have so many fun ideas swirling around in my head. But before I do anything else, I’m getting the photos from Piper’s party out into the universe!

FUN DATE NIGHT GIFTS IDEAS FOR VALENTINE’S DAY

FUN DATE NIGHT GIFTS IDEAS FOR VALENTINE’S DAY

The first couple years of our relationship, Trent and I only did experiential gifts for Valentine’s Day. We used to always get each other a fun card with the date night description or tickets tucked inside. To be honest, Christmas JUST happened. It probably doesn’t help that our tree and decorations stay up embarrassingly long. But I digress, back to the gift giving.
