Hey guys!! A few months ago I threw my good friend a "Once Upon a Time" themed baby shower. It was so much fun and it really challenged me to think outside of the box. I searched pinterest for inspiration but sadly not a lot of people have used this theme. I used only a few pinterest hacks. Stick around and I will show you what I did.!
My favorite project was this Jack and the Bean Stalk centerpiece I made.
What did I use to make this?
1. Pool Noodles (3) got them from dollar tree.
2. Cardboard box. This will serve as your base.
3. Fake or real leaves (if you're feeling fancy). I used leaves from a fake plant that was gifted to me.
4. Rope ( I got about 3 yards from the dollar tree)
5. Skinny pole. (any pole) It will help support your pool noodles. Make sure you put it right through the cardboard box.
P.s. I made my friend a video slideshow that she loved and it was playing in the background the entire shower. The slideshow included pictures of her and her hubby from when they first started dating -through marriage- and up to the ultrasound.
I got the sonogram idea from pinterest. I used scrapbook paper to cut out the words "Royal Favors". The favors were bath salts from my mom's business "Finally Blooming" and they smell amazing. Everyone loved them. I got the castle from the Goodwill and also the pig and medieval shield in the background.
This was also pinterest inspired design. I used a 2X1 and painted it black. I used a shelf bracket for the bottom to keep the pole stable. I cut arrows out of cardboard and painted them black. I lined the cardboard with ribbon to add a more polished look.
Let me know if you like these designs! See ya next time!
Hey guys!!! I hope you all are doing well?! I am hoping that you all have been hitting up your local Goodwill/and other thrift stores in search of some great finds.
I want to tell you guys all about this rose bush that I found at the Goodwill (it came as a set of 2) when I was vacationing in Bonita Springs, Florida. I was with one of my good friend and both of us wanted to them. I saw it first and my friend and I have a great understanding that whoever sees it first has first dibs. We Goodwill shop together a lot.
I spray painted the base black because the green was just not my style and looked dated (hated it!!!). I think the black spray paint brought this thing back to life(YAAASSS). Both of the bushes were $4.99 which was so great. Right now I have both bushes as a center piece on my kitchen table.
If you saw these at Goodwill would you grab them or pass?? Let me know your thoughts.
See ya later!!
