After going to the beach don’t you just wish you could take the beach and that feeling home! Well you can in a way with an easy beach memory jar. These are really cute also for party centerpieces. Plus so simple to make! You can use larger vases for a centerpiece. This can be a simple house decoration as well. If you have beach pictures of kids or family this is cute for a photo display. This one I made with shells and sand I collected from the beach. I want to bring as much of the beach as I can home with me! read more

DIY Seashell Wall Hanging

| Decorations, DIY

DIY Shell Wall Hanging

I recently moved close to the beach. For me that comes with the perk of being able to collect shells and use them for crafts. I found a ton of really pretty shells to turn into this pretty diy seashell wall hanging. I also worked with materials I had instead of getting anything from the craft store. If you are not close to a beach you can buy shells from the craft store or Amazon. They can also work outside for a shell wind chime. The shells make a pretty light sound when they touch. I want to bring some of the beach vibes inside our house. Now that I have a house I will probably do a few little easy home projects but I’m still sticking mostly to party do it yourself projects. Lets get started on this seashell wall hanging! read more

Hot Dog Balloons

| Balloons, DIY

I love balloons and easy do it yourself party decorations. These hot dog balloons fit perfectly into those categories. Summer is the time for barbecue celebrations in most parts of the country. I lived in Phoenix until recently and summer was not the best for outdoors. Fortunately we had a pool to cool off in and because of that we still got some outdoor barbecue time. Now I’m living close to the beach and I’m ready for some outdoor bbq time. So lets put another shrimp on the barbie or hot dog and get ready to celebrate! These balloons are super cute to use for table centerpieces or taped to the wall for a photo backdrop. People can also hold them to pose with a giant hot dog. Fun for kids and adults alike! Let’s get this party started shall we?! read more

Cars Printable Snack Boxes

| Birthday Party, DIY, Printables

Cars is such a cute movie and every movie needs some snacks! These printable snack boxes are adorable for a movie night. You can put popcorn and chips in them. You could also add some fruits and veggies in plastic bags. It’s an easy do it yourself for parties or movie nights inspired by the cars movies. I have seen almost all the kids movies that have come out in the last couple years. I’ve only seen a couple adult movies because I’m usually with my daughter and asleep by 9. I have to say I think some of the kids movies are really good. The Cars movies are really cute and definitely a crowd pleaser. We do a lot of movie nights in because it’s just way easier and kids don’t always have the attention span for movies out of the house. Plus, it’s cheaper! I like to make theme nights and movie nights extra fun. We pile pillows and blankets on the floor in the living room to watch movies. Cars is the perfect movie for a themed movie night. Have mini chocolate donut tires, fuel up on drinks, and mini car races for an activity. read more

Easy Balloon Centerpiece

| Balloons, DIY

Balloons are amazing! There is so much you can do with balloons. Lately I have been seeing hula hoops with balloons for a dessert table backdrop. I also have seen balloon centerpieces! I thought it looked so cute and had to make one for my daughters birthday. I actually made two because that’s just twice as fun! It was super easy to make and anyone can make a balloon centerpiece for their party. It’s also super cheap for a big effect and that’s what party do it yourself projects are all about. I added some colorful paper palm fronds that matched the colors of the party theme. You could also add some fake flowers to give it a delicate look. Lets get this party started! read more

Beach Towel Gift Bag

| DIY, Gift bags

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, INC. and The Coca-Cola Company, all opinions are mine alone. #BestSummerMemories #CollectiveBias

Summertime just makes me want to relax by the pool and not worry about a thing. In stores I keep seeing outfits and activities for summer, which means it is time to stock up on summer essentials! I am always one of the first people to get cute colorful towels, sunglasses, and flip flops. In Phoenix we start getting ready for summer early because it feels like summer in March. My latest summer obsession is those adorable drink pool floats that look like swans and flamingos. How great is it that now you can have your Coca-Cola™ or Diet Coke®  floating along with you in the pool to cool you off in the heat of summer! I thought why keep all of the summer fun to myself? This year I am spreading some summer fun with the friends I can’t wait to share the summer with by giving them a beach towel gift bag. Since summer is all about relaxing I didn’t want to make anything difficult but I wanted to think of a fun way to give a simple summer gift. I had the idea to make a beach towel into a gift basket. It was easier than I expected and works perfect for summer. With a few simple steps you will have an easy summer gift on the go and be at the pool before you know it! read more

Fruit Ice Cream Cones

| Desserts, DIY, Ice Cream, Pineapples

Summer is the perfect time for fruit and for ice cream. Well this doesn’t include a lot of actually fruit more like ice cream that looks like fruit. Does fruit flavor ice cream count as fruit? I’d say it does! I made cute little fruit ice cream cones that look like watermelons and pineapples. Two of my favorite cute fruits! Confession I didn’t have a ton of ice cream because everyone in my family ate the ice cream before I could use it. Don’t they know prop ice cream when they see it! They didn’t turn out as full as I would like because of the lack of ice cream but you get the idea. read more

Mermaid Party Favors with Printable Tags

| DIY, Mermaid party, mermaid party favors

Summer is coming up and do you know what that means, mermaids! When I was a kid(okay also as an adult) I was obsessed with mermaids. My sister, cousins, and I would pretend to be mermaids. My grandmother would put us in the hammock and pretend that we were mermaids in a net. Bath time got a little splashy with splashing our mermaid tails. My parents had to sit through The Little Mermaid about fifty million times and that’s barely exaggerating! I’m a mermaid on the inside and this week on the blog I am letting my mermaid love out with some fun mermaid party ideas. Starting with these adorable mermaid party favors that look like mermaid tails. They are so easy to make and not to mention crazy affordable since they are made out of tissue paper! read more
