DIY Balloon & Fronds Tropical Party Centerpiece

DIY Balloon & Fronds Tropical Party Centerpiece

One of my favorite elements of the  Party Like Pineapple birthday table was for sure, the balloon and fronds centerpiece! Originally, I wanted to hang a balloons garland above the dessert and drinks station, but when I was making it on the dining table, I realized it would make a fab tropical centerpiece ! And so a new idea was born!

A Lemon Themed Tablescape for Summer

As you can probably tell from my recent Easter themed posts here on the blog , I'm currently really into pastels.  I know it's not a groundbreaking concept for Easter or spring, but there's just something so cheerful and comforting about pastel colors - be it in parties, food or tablescapes. Am I right? Maybe next year I'll choose a more neutral color palette or farmhouse style for my decor, but pastels it is for my mantel decor this year!

Quick and Easy Halloween Slime Recipe For Kids

Quick and Easy Halloween Slime Recipe For Kids

My daughter has been obsessed with slime for a couple of years now. She's forever watching YouTube videos   about making slime at home, buying slime whenever she sees it in the shops, and basically just driving me crazy talking about slime. Can you relate, mamas? 😋 I've always been anti-slime myself. I mean, anything sticky that may cling to your carpet, hair and floors and that involves "wasting" household ingredients like washing-up liquid or flour...didn't spark joy for me. Buuuut, I completely changed my mind once I made slime myself!
