Summer Party Collabration


Welcome to my blog today! I am excited to share this project with you that is part of a collaboration with several ladies on Youtube.


I have seen sets of the gold confetti glasses that range any where to 4 for $30 to higher. I knew I could make these and I am very excited about how it turned out. They are perfect for a dinner party I am putting together now.


I picked up all of my supplies from Michaels and used a coupon to get a better price. The glasses are from Target and only cost $1.00 a piece.



To start set up your painting station to make things easy for you. I used 3 different gold paints to add just a touch of layer to my glasses. I love the way they turned out.

The tray made it very easy to dip my brush in and helped me apply the paint very easily.


Just start dotting away with whatever color scheme you decide to go with. I love the look of gold so I knew right away this was my theme. It also goes perfect with my black and white plates



Once I finished I set all of my glasses on a cookie sheet so they could dry for about two hours.

At that point we will take our cookie sheet and place them in a cold oven. Turn the oven to 350 and let them sit in the hot oven for 30 minutes. Then turn off the oven and let them sit for several hours until the oven is completely cool.








As you can see they turned out perfect! Take a look at a few of the other pictures to see how I planned everything for my party.


I found these perfect little black and white cups at Tuesday Morning. I filled mine with little macaroons and placed them on this little tray that I purchased from HomeGoods. 



What a yummy treat to walk in and see! 



I also set up a separate tray that I picked up from HomeGoods and filled more cups with strawberries. I set up a cupcake station for a special treat.








I love the mini pedestals to sit the cupcakes on. Its such a special touch to add height to my larger tray. I found the small pedestals at TJ Maxx for $7.99. 







The hutch is ready for everyone to pick a yummy treat and enjoy good company!











I love the way the table turned out with the cupcakes and the black and white design. Its perfect for juice, coffee and treats!



Take a look at the YOUTUBE video below to see all the steps needed for this project. 




Hope you enjoyed!

Day One of Trip with Shopping



Hello and welcome to my blog,




If you have been following me on my youtube channel you know that I have had a busy week with two back to back business trip. This trip involved flying way up north and for this little southern girl thats a big deal! So lets go!


We had two separate flights and thank goodness for movies which made the flight go by very fast. It was really neat to just slide your credit card and have your movie start right in front of you. The movie on the other hand I watched was not good at all but at least the time went by. I won't mention the movie because I am embarrassed to even admit I thought it would be funny!


Once we arrived to the hotel I walked next door to the mall that was attached. I wanted to share some photos of items I just loved. If I was on a shopping sphere with an endless budget these items would be in that purchase! 




Ok maybe not this life size bird cage but it was pretty cool. 




I actually just put a bench at my kitchen table and I cannot wait to share it with you in my family room makeover. 




This was my special treat I purchased for myself. Thank goodness Eddie talked me into it because I almost didn't purchase it because it was a little more than what I would like to pay but I just loved it!



Hello black and white stripes and I don't want to leave out the gold polka dots! I just love this look!


Looks like I need to throw a party just so I can purchase these invitations! I would have a Youtube party for all of my subscribers to say a huge thank you for how wonderful you all are!



I love these napkins with the green color and white. I am going to keep my eye out for these in my home town for a better price.



Wow these are fun! Not sure how they would fit with my decor but fun!



This is such a beautiful set of salt and pepper shakers but would you believe they were $80.00! Wow, lets fill them up with gold and sprinkles for that price! 


When I purchased my napkin holder that lady was so sweet and wrapped it for me! It was fun to come back to the hotel and open up my special present!


Hope you enjoyed the pictures and click below to see the video of my trip! I have lots of fun footage to share with you!
