DIY // Printable Dessert Coasters

I’m a little sad to admit this, but I totally forgot to share one of the printables from my Easter dessert table. The saddest part is they were one of my favorite elements that Lisa and I worked on together! I guess that’s what I get for trying to cram two weeks into a one week schedule all of the time?

Either way, the DIY printable dessert coasters turned out even better than I had hoped! Lisa totally brought my vision for them to life, and I think they’re a really fun idea for holidays (i.e. Easter, dun dun dun…), birthdays, or even weddings! You can use the heavy card stock coasters to glue them onto to use as disposable dessert plates for cupcakes, cookies, light bites, you name it. Lisa designed three different versions with cake, macarons, and pie on them and the color scheme is subtle enough to fit just about any soiree.

Cut out each one once you’ve saved and printed the coaster designs. Use rubber cement to or a glue stick to glue the printable onto the white coasters and let them dry.

They’re meant to be disposable so you don’t need to use any type of fancy paper, but if you want them to last, use a thick card stock and glossy spray finish to keep them longer.

I hope everyone had a lovely candy filled Easter! In case you follow along on Instagram, I’m still housing the cutest little kittens. Can I blame their cuteness for my lack of work ethic this week until I find them a home? Okay, great!

DIY // Bunny Ear Macarons

April 7, 2014

I know I’ve been a quite the Easter kick lately, but let’s be honest, it’s totally my color scheme. There also aren’t a lot of other times in the year where it’s socially acceptable to serve macaron bunnies to people when they come to your house for a quick visit, which means we need to heed the opportunity while we can, am I right?

Thus, I present to you DIY bunny ear macarons that are perfectly okay (in my book) to serve all of this month if you’d like! And for those of you that aren’t as bunny friendly, bare with me for just a tinyyyy bit longer!


  • Macarons
  • Scissors
  • Craft paper
  • Ultra thin taper candles or thin lollipop sticks
  • Glue stick
  • Pink watercolor paint and brush (optional)

Cut a quick two bows and pair of bunny ears for each cookie you have. To cut the bows, make a small rectangle shape and then cut two wide V shapes from each long side.

Make this craft even quicker by cutting multiple pieces of paper at a time to create multiple pairs at once.

Being very careful to not crush the macaron, gently place a lollipop stick or thin taper candle through the bottom of the cookie. I like using the candles because of the color variety, but either one works as long as they’re thin enough to not break the cookie apart.

Next, use a glue stick to adhere two bows to each other around the stick or candle to keep the double-sided bow in place.

Lastly, you can brush a quick touch of pink for the bunny ears onto the cut out card stock with watercolor and a paint brush, or just you them as is by sticking the ears in the top crease of the cookie making sure they touch icing to keep them in place.

Now all you have to do is serve and enjoy! I think they look cute laying flat (you can even use them as placecards!) or you can fix them into white floral foam to make them stand up in little baskets.

DIY // Geometric Floral Pendants

March 24, 2014

DIY floral geometric pendantDIY floral geometric pendant

As promised, I’ve put together the tutorial for the geometric floral pendants from our Palm Springs inspired tablescape that I shared with you last week! The project is actually much simpler than the finished product appears. I’ll go ahead and admit that it does take quite a while to finish them (about and hour and a half to two hours for the large pendant), but the whimsical and romantic look that they have when the sun is going down is totally worth it!

You can make as many or as few as you’d like to fill the perfect space, and the smaller the pendants the quicker they are to make. The larger one from our shoot was 12 inches on all sides, and the smaller one was six if that gives you any idea. Depending on how much you friends love you, I think these would be so perfect for DIY’ing for a wedding, don’t you?!


  • 24 Wooden skewers (12 in for the large and 6 in. for the smaller square)
  • Floral tape
  • Floral wire
  • Wire cutters
  • Floral sheers
  • Hot glue and glue gun
  • Fishing wire
  • Florals (these are c/o Flower Muse)
