Pink Pampas Grass Wreaths

Pampas grass has been cropping up everywhere the last couple of years, but did you know there’s a faux version that comes in a range of colors? It’s the perfect stand-in for pine boughs when it comes to holiday crafting, and bonus: no sap. This year we teamed up with Fiskars to create these frothy pink wreaths, sure to add a bit of fun whether you make a few for next-level place settings or just one for the mantle. Full instructions below AND don’t miss out on our special GIVEAWAY!

Small Gifts and Stocking Stuffers

I’m constantly looking for small gifts that work for an Advent Countdown or Tooth Fairy. I like little toys that can be collected or stored together, especially toys that have a classic or vintage feel. I also don’t want things my kids will play for five minutes and quickly end up in the garbage. I keep a stash of these types of toys and prizes in my closet and am surprised how often they save me in a pinch. (On top of a birthday present, as a reward to honor a special day, and I’ve even wrapped several of them up as a big present–when I forgot to buy a birthday gift for their friend’s birthday party.) They are usually inexpensive and come in multiples so the key is to buy a stash then keep them hidden and locked up so they feel like a new surprise. Since we’re heading into the holiday season I thought I would do a round up. (Candy is easy to add so I kept this round up to strictly non-food items.)

Easy on the Halloween Eyes

I just decorated the house for Halloween. Even though I’ve ran a crafting and party blog for years I feel like I’ve only gotten on the Halloween decorating bandwagon the last few years (The cobbler’s child has no shoes.) I’m still pretty low key so I thought I would share my easy festive decorations.
