Mason Jar Gift Certificate Holder

Giving gift certificates is my least favorite thing to do; it really is!  I love buying what I consider tangible presents, but if the gift card is for something the person or couple really needs or wants, I am buying it! But, for me, gift certificates leave less to the imagination than normal.  I stuff them in…

A Harry Potter Birthday…Floating Candles

One of the best visual images of the Sorcerer’s Stone is when Harry enters the Great Hall.  We see the ceiling enchanted, as if it were open up to the night sky, along with floating candles a few feet above all the tables.  It was so beautiful, and when I looked up inspiration on Pinterest, I found so many variations that…

Cake Pop Stand & Donut Hole Topiary

What a fun and super easy craft! These two pots were transformed to serve fun treats on the dessert table at our daughter’s First Holy Communion.

Burlap and Lace Votive Candle Project

These burlap and lace votives were a quick craft to put together, at under an hour, and I ended up making four different styles out of the two ribbons to keep with the  shabby chic/rustic feel of my daughter’s party.  A pair of votives highlighted each centerpiece, and was a cute glimmering addition as the day turned to dusk….
