Anniversary Printable SNEAK PEEK

This FREE Printable Party Set is Coming Soon!

We have a get-together with our church small group coming up and the hostess wanted to make the get-together special for another couple who was having their anniversary that day.  So, I offered to bring some Happy Anniversary printables to the party.  I was sure I had pinned one somewhere! Wrong! I searched the web and nada.  So, I decided to create a Happy Anniversary Party Printable Set myself!

This is how the banner turned out.  It is a blue and white chevron pattern with yellow letters and grey accents.

Maybe a nod to the nautical theme I'm crazy for right now?

I created one page of smaller tags and toppers with Bible verse phrases on love and other love phrases.

This is what the entire set looks like.

I will be giving you this Anniversary Party Printable Set for FREE soon!

It's Easter!

Ok, I realize Easter has come and gone, but I never had time to post all of my Easter decorating ideas! So here goes...

I bought this wreath for $2.50 at Target in the Dollar section.  I simply added the blue ribbon and the words HAPPY EASTER from the Easter Party Printable I created.

This is my Easter table setting before I added the plates etc.  It's simple and very inexpensive! I purchased 2 white plastic tablecloths (my table is super long), one roll of wrapping paper, one pack of 24 paper doilies, 2 packs of faux moss covered rocks, and brown paper Easter basket filling from the Dollar Tree all for $1 each totaling $7! I made the DIY Candy Display Jars and you can see how in the post on my blog.  I purchased the green basket from Target in the Dollar section also-I think it cost $2.50 and added the brown paper Easter basket filling with eggs I had purchased from Dollar Tree last year.  I created the free Easter Party Printables that you can use also!

Notice how the doily runner falls off the end of the table?

The table is set and ready to go!

Hope you had a Happy Easter!

Easter Silhouettes

This project was so easy thanks to Martha Stewart! I had some scrapbook paper that I measured and cut down to 8.5 X 11 inches (regular paper size).  The paper has two different patterns on both sides.  I printed the design on the side I did not want to display-the "wrong" side.  The silhouette comes from the Martha Stewart website.
Then, I cut out the silhouettes (which include chicks, a rooster, and a bunny) with scissors and taped them to wooden sticks.  Next, I inserted them into my woven wreath (another Dollar Tree find) so they would be standing upright.

And finished! My mantle is ready for Easter! The Easter Banner comes from the free Easter Party Printable Set I created!

DIY Easter Paper Napkin Rings

This Easter printable came from the Hostess with the Mostess Blog.  I printed out the Toppers and cut out the circles.

Then, I folded the circle in two trying not to create creases and cut a slit with my scissors.

Lastly, I slid a rolled up napkin through the middle creating a simple napkin ring! So Easy, Cute, and Inexpensive!

DIY Easter Placecards & Candy Egg Holders

This Easter printable came from The Hostess with the Mostess Blog.  I printed out the placecards and affixed labels with my guests names on them.  Then, I taped it together creating a loop around my finger and added my mini cadbury eggs on top for each guest.
Simple, Easy, and Cute!


Thanksgiving at my house.  With so many guests coming, I bought fancier plastic plates at BJ's Wholesale Club along with the silverware for easier clean-up.  Everyone thought it was the real thing until they picked it up and realized how light it was!
Christmas at my house! My favorite holiday! Tip: Repetition is key in table settings to make it look beautiful!
