We’re finally back from Florida, but I still have open doors, oceans breezes, and patio dinners on the mind! I realize it may be a little chilly most places, but maybe if we start prepping for Spring soirees the sunshine will come? I’ll take one for the team and go first, starting with the DIY brushstroke coasters and a few simple ideas for entertaining with paper plates… the classy way.

I feel like I can speak on the topic of paper plates pretty professionally considering I’ve been working on mastering them for last 20 years. Just recently have I come to realize that mixing your paper plates with a few statement serve ware pieces makes the biggest difference in the world. My method: use paper plates for the biggest portion, and the real stuff for the things that can be cleaned up quickly or tossed in the dishwasher all at once. It’s tried and true, I tell ya!

I’ve also been on a big Cheeky Home kick because a) I’ll buy anything colorful from Target (let’s be honest), and b) they give a meal to a person in need every time you purchase a Cheeky product, and I’m 150% into that…

I plan to gold foil all of the things after making this DIY gold foil brushstroke pillow over on Designlovefest. If things going really well someone might even remake Diamonds Are Forever but with a gold lovers twist and then my life will be truly complete. Until then, you can keep busy with the full tutorial for this pretty little lady right here!

We’re still basking in the sun over here in Florida behind the scenes, so be sure to keep in touch with us via Insta beach photos for now!

DIY Printable Fruit Wall Art

As we’re adding the last few touches to the new studio, I knew I wanted to add a simple pop of color on the wall near the kitchenette area. It was a little too plain to leave it empty, but I wanted to keep it simple since the kitchen shelves already have so much going on with them. To create a little nod to kitchen ingredients and staying on trend with the busy patterns and colors that are popping up everywhere, I made this DIY printable fruit wall art.

I was able to create really fun and quirky fruit photos by scanning them with our new Sprout, which would have been nearly impossible (or super, super time consuming!) without it. Since I know not everyone has access to a Sprout we’ve created several different sized downloads for you to save and print to have one of your own!
