Thanksgiving Table Setting Ideas

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great Thursday! Can you believe Thanksgiving is in one week? I can't! We have Thanksgiving at our house, and it's me and my sister's job to set the table and make it look festive :) So here are a few ideas I found that I thought I might share with you all. Let me know what you think! 

Perfect for the kids' table! I especially love the pumpkins in the ice cream cone :)

Another kids table idea. I really love the napkins! 

I thought the name card idea was really cute here.

This one is pretty fancy :) I  personally like the idea of the pumpkins in the center with candles.

Ah yes, simple but still creative!

DIY Wreath!

Hey everyone! Hope you're having a great Tuesday! Today I wanted to show you all our wreath my lovely sister Shelby made. She did such a great job and I had to share it with you all! Let me know if you've got any questions!

Where we got our supplies:

Wreath- Hobby Lobby
Bow- Walmart 
Scarecrow- Hobby Lobby
Gourds and Pumpkins- Dollar Tree
Leaves- Hobby Lobby

What she did:

Shelby did her wreath a little different. Instead of gluing on the decorations, she tied them on with string. That way, we can take off the decorations and put new ones on for different holidays such as Christmas or Valentine's Day.

This is where the scarecrow is tied on

Here's where she tied on the pumpkins and gourds.

A Quick Road Trip!

Hello all! Hope you are having a great Veterans Day! Be sure to take the time today to stop and say thank you to any veterans you know. Well, life right now for me is crazy busy and jam packed with school, piano, running, and much much more. We actually went out of town for a few days for a college visit this week, which was pretty fun. Just a few notes, I will be taking down buttons sometime this week. But, I will be putting everyone who had a button on here on my blogroll (which will be made in the near future). More pics to come from the trip, in the meantime have a blessed Sunday!

Flash Mob

Hey everyone! Hope you are having a terrific Thursday! Okay, so the other day my sister showed me an incredible flash mob that I really wanted to share with you all. A flash mob is basically a sudden gathering of people who randomly dance, play music, etc. As a musician I found this certain flash mob absolutely astounding. Let me know what you think! Know of any other cool flash mobs? I'd love for you to share!

Nailed it!

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great Tuesday! It's election day here in America. I can't wait to see who becomes the next president! Anyhoo, today I wanted to post a few tips for nails I found! These are so cool, and I definitely want to try. Let me know what you think!

This definitely looks cool! All you have to use is masking tape and craft punches to create awesome nail art. 

Here's an easy way to get amazing french tips! Paint your base color, let it dry, then put some scotch tape over your nail just enough to paint some french tips, and there ya go!

Love this idea! Paint your nails a solid base color, paint some scotch tape, let it dry, cut it up, and then...awesome nail art! :)
