Flowers bring so much joy to everyone. Why not host a party with a flower theme? Recently, we launched our new flower arranging business with Alice’s Table so I knew that I wanted to have a flower-themed buffet table. We will walk you through how to put this buffet together, show you where to find the recipes, and how to make a stunning cupcake bouquet!
Teacher Appreciation day was on our horizon, and I wanted to do something special for my boys’ teachers. I always feel happier around flowers and thought it would also brighten the teachers’ days to have some lovely flowers. When I thought about the vase, I wanted to do something that was not only personalized with a monogram but also reflected the teachers’ favorite color of pink. Discover how to easily make these vases for someone special or keep it around to decorate your own home.

I’d love to show you how to easily recreate gorgeous floral bouquets in your home.
After reading Marie Kondo’s The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, we have gone a little organizing-crazy around our house! It always drove me bonkers when I purchased an item at the grocery store only to find that I already had it at home. Now everything in the kitchen has a home and I can immediately track it down. Each time I open up the cabinet, pantry, or refrigerator, the angels sing and I do feel that sense of joy. I would love to help you achieve the pantry that wows, and I will show you how!
Our number one tip for getting the most bang for your buck when decorating a party would be to make your own balloon garland! We received so many compliments on our balloon garland from our Toy Story post that I knew it was essential for us to write a step-by-step guide that illustrated how to assemble a balloon garland. You will not believe how easy and inexpensive this project is! Your guests will gasp when then see it!
What is the ultimate theatre and art experience? The experience you can eat!! On our recent trip to Barcelona, we splurged by partaking in a 23 course sensory dining experience. Ok, I know what you’re thinking… how on earth can you eat 23 courses in one setting? Some courses were one or two bites, and each course was paced in a comfortable manner. Our three hour meal flew by just as if we were watching a highly-trained Broadway play. If you’re a real food nerd like me, you have heard of place called El Bulli. The chefs at Disfrutar used to work at El Bulli (once ranked #1 restaurant in the world). El Bulli has now closed its doors, but lucky for us, some of its chefs opened Disfrutar! In a city filled with top-notch restaurants, Disfrutar has been ranked #18 in the world!
Ask me about my favorite party, and I’ll probably tell you it’s the one on which I’m currently working. That being said, I believe this Toy Story Party might be in the top spot in my list of parties! We found so many creative things you can do with the adorable Toy Story characters! Don’t you just love the work of the imaginative creators of Pixar? Please… don’t feel like you have to do all of these ideas (that would be crazy, right??). We hope you take away some fun ideas you can incorporate into your own party.
Each year we strive to create a unique and elegant Christmas card. We were pleased with our cards but a little embarrassed about how the envelopes looked (confession- my handwriting is not that stellar). We would admire those rare envelopes that displayed handwritten calligraphy. How could we get those stunning envelopes without hiring a calligrapher? Recently, I figured out a way to replicate the look of handwritten calligraphy with my Cricut Explore Air 2!! You do not have to stop with your envelopes; I will show you how to make lovely Christmas cards too.
Creating food masterpieces in the kitchen is such a gratifying hobby. It’s so engaging that I get annoyed when I have to leave the kitchen to look up a fact or conversion. I needed to sit down and write a cheat sheet for all the facts and conversions for which I’m constantly looking. Hurray! It’s finally here– five different cheat sheets that we find most helpful in our household. I am excited to share the information I have learned as personal chef, caterer, and bakery owner to help you in the kitchen and for your next party.
