Give me S’more!

With a fun-filled weekend quickly approaching I’m cleaning out my grill and stocking up on staples: graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows. Yes, it is s’more season!

Get creative with some red and blue bowls and have everything set out nicely when guests are ready to get their fingers sticky. I love the use of the old wash tub and some untraditional add-ons.

Isn’t this marshmallow tree super cute? Click image for more fun fire skewers.

OR… if you love the taste but the whole open fire isn’t with the vibe of your party opt for these pops with cracker crumbs from Gimme Some Oven! (click image for directions) So chic!

Nautical Touches

In need of a beach getaway but cannot seem to get there? Give your house a nod to the nautical with some touches of rope.

Take some big glass containers and fill them with different thicknesses of rope to give more texture. Click on image for more info and some DIY projects.  Here is a great site for all different types of rope. 

Thirst Quencher

Everyone ready for a nice long weekend! Have any plans? Staycation? I’m doing some fun day trips with some lady friends. Sun hats are going to be a must!

I am defiantly going to try this strawberry pineapple cooler. It will be a great way to jump-start into summer. Added bonus is that it looks so pretty in glasses with the pop of red. Don’t forget to add a few toothpicks with some complimentary fruit. Check here for the full recipe.   Happy Friday!
