Vinyl Dressed Lanterns {monogrammed, spooky or plain customized fun}

Vinyl Dressed Lanterns {monogrammed, spooky or plain customized fun}

I have to start off by stating my deep love for outdoor lanterns. After seeing catalog after catalog adorned with porches full of lanterns...I've been hooked and simply can not get enough of them. I stumbled across these great outdoor lanterns at Ikea last year at an amazing price considering the sizes. They are called Borrby and run $14.99 for the large {height: 17 ¼ inches} and $7.99 for the small {height: 11 inches}. They still carry them and I admit I can not go there without leaving the store with another to add to my collection.I actually Continue reading

Halloween Table Setting {Tablescape} & A Make Your Own Grilled Cheese Party

Last weekend we hosted our annual Halloween get together for the kiddies. A casual night filled with family, friends, and full of fun! I was inspired by the infamous duo of Martha and Oprah and decided to try a Make Your Own Grilled Cheese Bar. During the summer we hosted a Make Your Own Grilled Pizza Party and the kids had such a blast being involved with making their own food; I knew they would get the same kick out of the making their own sandwiches. The tablescape was for the kids and kept pretty simple utilizing many things I already Continue reading
