Silver & Gold Star Piñatas

by Kathleen Ballos

Whenever I put silver and gold together, I can’t help but think of Christmas. Make these miniature star piñatas and fill them with all the silver and gold treats you can find – they’re everywhere this time of year! Wouldn’t it be fun to make these as party favors for an all silver and gold party this winter? (P.S. Even more metallic ideas!)

Custom Phone Cases as Gifts

Are you one of those people who’s already finished all their holiday shopping? If not, you should check out Pear Tree Greetings. I’ve worked with them before to design our family Christmas cards and Valentines cards for the kids. This year, they approached me about designing custom gifts from their site. I really loved all the options for phone covers, so I ordered a bunch that featured photos from my Instagram account. Once I found a template I liked, the whole process literally took me less than 10 minutes. The cases are easy to customize – you can add words, change the fonts, or use multiple photos. I got them in the mail a week later and was really happy with the awesome quality! I can’t wait to share them with my friends. Have you ever made custom gifts before?

Modern Holiday Decorating

Here’s a little peak at our living room bookcases all decorated for Christmas. When I’m styling my home for the holidays, I like to use things I already have but add in some modern festive touches. For my shelves I added a banner and lots of mini trees to turn the shelves into a little forest.  I like that the decorations aren’t overwhelming and instead are just subtle touches. I love this perfect gold tray to serve treats (or hold cookies for Santa.) I also bought two of these benches that work great as extra seating for a party or in the guest room to hold suitcases when guests come.
