Friday Favorites: Tissue Paper Decorations

It is been a while since I’ve posted, and lots of things have been keeping me busy… But I’m still alive. Last month, I posted 2 baby showers that I threw for my friends (Mint, Pink & Gold | Spring Baby Shower). In order to stay within my budget, I used Tissue Paper for a lot of my decorations. It’s amazing how you can turn ordinary tissue paper into something beautiful! It’s completely affordable and as you can see below, they can turn into some beautiful and useful decorations! Whether you’re on a budget or looking for different ways of using tissue paper for your next party, here are some fabulous ideas!

Friday Favorites: Kitchen Printables

I have no artwork in my kitchen, not that I have any room for them right now, but I’m hoping that we will have it in our next home (since we will be moving soon). And, I’ve been dying to get my pantry organized for a while now, and I’m getting some ideas now so that when it comes time, I know exactly what I want to do in the next place. So, for my Friday Favorites today, I’m sharing my Favorite Kitchen Printables both for the wall & labels for the pantry. There are so many cute printables to choose from!

Friday Favorites: Easter Centerpieces & Table Settings

With Easter just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to share some of my Favorite Easter Centerpieces and Table Settings. I am a big fan of keeping decor simple, especially when it comes to eating at the table. I’m a huge klutz, so I like when there’s enough room to eat in case I accidentally spill something and I don’t completely destroy someone’s beautiful display. Most of these Easter Centerpieces and Table Settings are budget friendly and easy to put together. If you’re hosting Easter this year, you’re going to want to try some of these beautiful displays!

Friday Favorites: Easter Printables

Today’s Friday Favorites consist of my favorite Easter Printables. I can’t believe that in a month we’ll already be celebrating Easter. This year, as all years seems like, is going by fast, but I’m loving every moment of it.

Easter is such an exciting time as we get excited for warmer weather, and longer days. It has been so much fun to celebrate Easter with my boys and I can’t wait to see how the Easter egg hunt will go this year with our 1 year old. Last year he was only 3-4 months old and watched his brother search for eggs.

More importantly, I’m excited to teach our kids (at least the oldest will understand) about the true meaning of Easter and teach him more about the Savior. I’m so grateful for the Savior, and His sacrifice and that we have a chance to live with Him again someday.

This is a day late, but these were too cute not to share and I had been working on it yesterday, I just for some reason forgot to hit “post”…

It already feels like Spring in beautiful California, and I am absolutely loving it! Next year, on the other hand, will be a different story. I know that this time next year in Alaska, we’re going to be begging for Spring, so I’m going to enjoy every minute of this gorgeous weather now, and share some of my favorite Spring Printables.

After looking through Pinterest and finding these amazing St. Patrick’s Day treats, I am actually looking forward to making as many as I can with my son. The two of us are huge fans of Lucky Charms, so I was pretty excited when I found these delicious recipes. What St. Patrick’s Day goodies will you be making?
