Even if you don’t love Valentine’s Day, you can still love this champagne cocktail. It has all the trademarks of a good Valetnine’s day date … it’s sweet, eye catching, and will make you happy. What more could a girl want?
With two ingredients: Berry Champagne and St. Germain Liqueur this cocktail couldn’t get much simpler. Not even a shaker required which makes it a simple cocktail to serve while entertaining. I recommend placing the bottles on a bar cart or other beverage station so guests can help themselves.
Ready for the big game? If not, no worries — I’ve got you covered.

I was recently looking for the perfect canister to use on my office desk. I began searching around my house to see what I could re-purpose into some DIY office decor, when I had the idea to transform discarded soup cans into new chic decor. I started by gathering a set of three cans in a variety of sizes. I then removed the labels and washed the cans. Once dry, I masked off sections of the can using painters tape so that I could spray paint them to give them a trendy look.
Since mixed metals are in style, I decided to leave some of the silver can visible and paint stripes using gold and copper spray paint.
I lightly sprayed on two coats of paint and once completely dry, carefully removed the tape.
There are many outlets you can go to for inspiration when you are throwing a party; however, planning one can get overwhelming – and expensive. The good news is, with a little creativity, you can easily add some flair to your next get-together while avoiding spending a fortune at party and craft stores. For example, you can add color to party supplies and décor by using simple and inexpensive solutions, like nail polish! Here are a few DIY ideas on how you can add creative of color to your next event.
Who knew nail polish could be used for party decor?
Dress-up your cutlery
Adding a few stripes of color to the handles of your cutlery will add unexpected style and fun. You can purchase stainless steel forks, knives and spoons at most dollar stores. The set I used (in the above image) came in a four-pack for $1.00, so I didn’t hesitate adding nail polish to dress them up. Be sure to hand wash them once your party is over.
What’s better than a warm cup of milk before bed? Okay who REALLY has warm milk before bed? I wonder these things.
But a warm cup of milk with decadent chocolate spoons to stirs things up? Hot Chocolate Spoons….I’m so in.
These easy treats are a perfect way to enjoy an after-dinner treat. Simply stir in a warm cup of milk and enjoy! They make for a great treat when having company during the holiday season and can even be wrapped up for teachers as gifts. If you’d like to make them ahead of time for last minute guests or gifts, just store them in a Ziploc® Bag and keep in the freezer. Pull them out an hour before needed and enjoy.
Looking for easy Christmas crafts or a last minute accessory to go with that awesome holiday T you’re rocking? This morning my oldest daughter had to wear an “ugly sweater” to school (which by the way was NOT ugly. It was totally cute — clearly she didn’t get the memo that you don’t find ugly sweaters at Kohl’s. How about a thrift store darling?).
Anyway, we whipped up this fun jingle bell bracelet in 30 seconds. Super simple!
Our supplies: Ribbon we had on hand and these jingle bells I had picked up at Target. That’s it! We simply tied the bells (they are in cluster of 3′s) onto the ribbon and then tied the ribbon on her wrist.
She topped off her ugly-ish sweater ensemble with this cute bow. She just super glued a traditional bow to an old hair clip. Love that she has her own DIY style.
I love this girl.
Have a great weekend friends — I’m sure it will be full of Christmas cheer!
