Easter Brunch Inspiration

1. Bunny Placecards: DIY found here. It amazes me how cute anything can look sprayed gold! You can usually find plastic animals like this at the dollar store. Baby chicks would be cute too!

2. Paper Straws: Pastel colors look so festive and cute for easter! Straws can be ordered here.

3. Bunny Bags: These little bunny bags are so cute for little candies as a favour. Tutorial here

4. Easter Eggs: Love black and white designs, and this is so much easier that dipping your finger in food dye! Just some inspiration and a sharpie can create a cute center piece! Found here. 

5. Happy Easter Banner: On Sale for $25 at Pottery Barn

6. Easter Stickers: Stickers for the kids to play with, you can print them easily with this free download from the mer mag blog, her boys loved them!

First Birthday Polka Dot Decals

The lengths that some mamas will go to for their kiddos. I received an invite from my good friend Jasalyn (from Jasalyn Thorne Photography) a couple weeks back - it was her daughters first birthday and she was getting ready for the party. When you picture a party you think a little cake, pin the tail on the donkey, kids crying… yada yada yada.. Not for this girl though. This party was the essence of elegance, coral and cute little bunnies. Jasalyn pulled out all the stops. She used our polka dot decals in gold and a custom giant letter A for an accent wall along with hundreds of mini eggs and flower cakes.  Isn't it pinterest perfect?! Attention to detail is apparently a strong point for mama. 

Happy Birthday Abbey! One looks good on you ;)

DIY ++ Diamond Drawing

This DIY is maybe one of the easiest you can do, plus it looks great and is practically free! A simple way to create minimal geommetric art so you can finally fill those blank frames! 

You will need:


-Permanent Marker


-Frame, I used the Virserum Frames from Ikea. 

All you have to do is get a little creative and draw your shape. Connecting lines using the ruler, I found it helpful to look at some drawings and copy bits from them... Here is some inspiration:
