Free Thanksgiving Dinner Party Printables

I love the holidays. I especially love Thanksgiving because it is all about being with your family and friends without the gift buying pressure. This is a sneak peak of my Thanksgiving Table.

You can download the printables for free from scribd below.

It comes with wine tags, food labels, place settings and “I am Thankful for…” 3×3 circles.

Backyard Birthday Bash!

 Both of my girls have summer birthdays so we threw them a joint  party over the weekend.  We live in the desert and it’s super hot so our theme was a “Backyard Birthday Bash!”
 We had swimming, a slip and slide, a jumpy house, a snow cone machine, an ice cream cake and more… 
The printables gave it a modern Circus/Fair feel.  I used different fonts and colors.  It was fun not to be limited on color. 

We served corn dogs and chips (which went with our Circus feel).

The kids a blast and I did too putting everything together. 
Here are some pics!

The silly string was the biggest hit!

For the ice cream cake!

Water Balloon Toss!

A Happy Face!  All that matters 😉

Succulent Garden!

Want an easy care free garden? 
How about adding some succulents to your backyard. This arrangement (minus the planter from Pottery Barn) cost me about about $80. I bought all the terracotta pots at the Home Depot or the Dollar Store.
  I made them look old by thinning out acrylic paint (black, brown, green in color) with water and painting the pots gently. 
I potted them with all different types of succulents.
And now I have a center piece on my outdoor table that will last me all through the hot summer with little maintenance.

Retro Candy Table-Repost

I love candy tables but sometimes they can get a little mundane. I saw this one over at Celebrations at Home and I loved its new spin. Loving the aqua and orange and its retro feel…what do you think?  
Have you seen any other unique candy tables lately?

The Most Beautiful Tablescape Ever!

Happy President’s Day! Hope everyone is having a great weekend with their families.
Don’t forget about our great giveaway.  Today is the last day…You have a great chance to win and its over $100 value.  You pick your colors and the theme and I design your printables…How fun right!
I saw this tablescape about 1 week ago and it literally made my mouth hang open because it was so beautiful.   And think no one even got to use it because it was just for a photo shoot (so sad!)
I am drawn to it because of the contrast between the soft colors and natural textures and the pops of fuchsia and turquoises.  If I could do a redo on my wedding (my parents are so happy I can’t 😉 I would pick something every similar to this.   
Here are all the details for the wedding from the 944 Magazine!  ENJOY!
We were so honored to work with 944 Magazine on their first-ever wedding issue, and we were even MORE excited to have one of our clients,  Canvas and Canopy Events, create a custom tablescape just for their readers! Cortnie created a beautiful Marie Antoinette and peacock inspired tablescape at the Grand Del Mar for 944′s “Set the Scene” section and it turned out just beautiful!  I love all of the hot pinks and turquoises mixed with the golds in the peacock feathers . Great job to Joielala Photographie, Studio Fiore and Ceci New York for your talented contributions!
