I love making simple necklaces out of beads (evidence here) and often have my crafty friends over to work on jewelry projects. This garland would be perfect decor for a jewelry crafternoon but it’s so bright and graphic it could work for just about anything. These mega versions of my favorite seed beads come together quickly using whatever paper you have on hand. If you love stringing beads together this will be right up your alley!

We hosted a “Welcome Summer”party a few weeks ago as part of a Quaker Chewy campaign. I already shared a post about the Color Fight and today I’m sharing photos from our bubble relay race. We split all the kids into teams and had them race across the grass doing the crab walk. The twist is I set up 4 bubble machines to create a giant tunnel of bubbles to race through. After the races in turned into the kids just chasing bubbles around (the little ones got a little distracted-ha!) Don’t miss my Sister Design Mom’s post & My Sister in Law Say Yes’ post too!

Not sure how long this pineapple trend is going to last but we are going to ride that train until it crashes. Pineapples forevah! Here are some of our favorite pineapple pins.
Now that it’s almost officially the start of summer, I think it would be so much fun to host a summer solstice party! Even if you’re nowhere near an ocean or lake, make these miniature chairs and umbrella to add a beachy vibe to your cake. (P.S. – How to perfectly frost a messy cake!)
