Decorate It - A Spring Garden Party

To say I am obsessed with Cheeky Home and their paper plates, napkins, and party wares is an understatement. Each collection that they come out with is even better than the last, and their newest spring collection is the best so far. The turquoise, pink, and gray color combo is just perfect for a spring time soiree. But my favorite piece of the collection is their floral patterned plates and cups. So, using their plates as my color and theme inspiration, I put together the perfect spring garden party complete with endless flowers and balloons. Because a party isn't a party without flowers and balloons!

DIY It - Custom Colored Glass Plates

DIY Your own colorful plates with gold edges similar to dinner ware you would see in Target or Anthropologie - Oh Joy copy cat dinner ware - craft ideas - home decor diy projects
It may sound strange, but one of my favorite types of DIY projects to make are dining pieces. Whether is is a napkin ring, drinking glass, napkin, or plates. I love creating a unique place setting entirely out of DIYs. Not only can I get what I want that way, but I really do enjoy the making process too! These custom colored glass plates are just another DIY of mine that fit into that dining category.

I was at IKEA shopping for the supplies for this project, and I found these plain circle glass plates for a dollar each. So naturally, as any good DIYer does, I loaded up my cart. I wasn't quite sure what I was going to make, but when you find plain glass plates at that price, you buy them out! Only half kidding. But in all seriousness, I am so glad I bought them, because with just a bit of spray paint and shellac I was able to create the perfect custom plates!

Naturally I chose to make my plates in an ombre of pinks. Because why not?! So I picked 4 of my favorite pink/blush/peach spray paints and got to work.

DIY It - 15 Colorful Succulent Craft Projects

I will admit it, I love a good succulent project. Not only are succulent easy to take care of, but you can pretty much put them in any container inside and out. And I don't just love real succulents, I love felt succulents and faux succulents just as much! So to share my love for succulents with all of you, I rounded up 15 of my favorite colorful succulent projects from pin cushions, to small planters, to soap.

DIY It - Gradient Bar Ware

It may come as no surprise to you, but I am currently loving gradients. I love the way the colors mix together and overlap to create a unique pattern, and I especially love how you can achieve the look with just a few cans of spray paint. In an effort to turn everything I own colorful (JK, sort of), I recently gave my bar cart a cotton candy gradient makeover just in time for spring. A few glasses, a shaker, and even a wine opener got the gradient treatment, and I will show you how to recreate the look for yourself.

As it turns out, creating your own gradient set is easier than it may seem. Just a few cans of spray paint and a few bar ware pieces are all you need.
