{DIY} How I Carved These Cute Pumpkins!

by Jillian Leslie on

Honestly, I've never been good at carving pumpkins. Mine always turn out looking so juvenile, it's a little embarrassing. :)

So yesterday I decided to try out pumpkin carving templates. I don't know why I'd never thought of this before, maybe because I thought they'd be hard and weren't worth the money. Well these I got for FREE from HP and they were super easy to use and look how awesome my pumpkins turned out!

{RECIPE} Fun for Cocktail Parties... Piña Colada and Mojito Gelées!

by Jillian Leslie on

Last week, Glam Media sent us a "party pack" filled with fun party supplies, and Bacardi sent us two bottles of their new Piña Colada and Mojito Classic Cocktails Light so we could style a "Shiny Chic" cocktail party.

We wanted to try something new, so we decided to make piña colada and mojito gelées! What's a gelée, you might ask? Well, it's fancy way of saying "Jello shot."

If you read my Facebook page you know I'm always showing off circle fan rosette backdrops. What I love about them is they're easy to make (you just fold paper like a fan and pinch in the middle, then attach a couple fans together) and they add dimension to a wall or dessert table. Here are some of my favorite circle fan rosettes from our site.

{DIY} How to Make a Paper Flower Backdrop

by Jillian Leslie on

I had to share this paper flower backdrop tutorial created by Ellinée because I think it is so beautiful and original. I love the 3D nature of it. How amazing would this look behind a dessert table!

The tutorial comes with the paper flower garland templates and instructions. You just need to download the templates, cut out the flowers, attach the flowers to baker's twine using an embroidery needle, and tie the twine to a pretty branch.
