DIY Floral Beach Cruiser

Beach cruisers make me happy but beach cruisers decorated with the prettiest florals? Those have me doing high kicks. We first fell in love with this floral infused bicycle here and have since been dreaming of crafting a get away bike of our very own. The Little Things, ...

DIY Felted Ball Mobile

Most everyone here at SMP headquarters is either on mat leave, has just returned from said leave, or has recently announced that they're expecting. There are maybe two of us who joke that there's something in the SMP water, and we're crossing our fingers it's not contagious (hashtag NotReady). But then we create a DIY the likes of this one, and I start to second guess myself. Because, you guys? It's so cute!!

Kicked Up Condiments

I remember this french fry place in San Francisco that had like 30 different dipping sauces. Oh the joy of narrowing that down to my top 5 as I placed my order...one delicious dunking tank after another. Well today, we're making our own little dips of heaven. From Bloody Mary Ketchup to Bourbon Honey Mustard, these dips will crank up any dish your cooking. And for those of you looking for the...

DIY Balloon Arch

So this project almost killed me. Literally. We got the idea from The House that Lars Built's amazing balloon arch right here, but tweaked it a bit to tower over a table full of little kids for our State Fair Birthday Party. This project is not for the faint of heart but if you follow the well...

DIY Marquee Light-Up Cake Topper

When I told Jess - our in house DIY guru - that I wanted a cake topper that lit up like a state fair marquee for Audrey's Birthday, I expected her to tell me that I was nuts. Because why would you want a cord coming off your cake? But then I sent her a link to the cordless, battery operated, miniature LED lights and boom. An idea was born.

DIY Photo Booth Props

As a wedding and party blogger, I've seen my fair share of photo booths. But for some reason, when it's your own kid and your kids cute friends, the idea just feels right. But we wanted to update our State Fair Photo Booth with some serious SMP style. So Jess crafted these adorable (and free downloadable!) prop templates. It's photobooth chic times ten. 8.5”x11” white cardstock...

DIY Goldfish Soap Favors

So now we're breaking down all of the DIYS for our State Fair Birthday party. I have to admit, we found this idea on Pinterest. Obviously. But really. There couldn't be a cuter, more appropriate favor. Tiny bags of goldfish surrounded by clear glycerin soap made to look exactly like the kind of prize you might win at a state fair.

Modern State Fair Birthday Party

Every year we throw my daughter, Audrey, a birthday party. The kind of party that leaves her mom (me) with glue gun blisters, heat exhaustion and a few new strands of gray hair. You might remember her 1st3rd...

DIY Rope Bracelet

To say that I'm obsessed with this next DIY would be the understatement of the century. Who knew a little bit of rope and a handful of embroidery thread could be so stinkin' adorable? Plus, they're so easy you could whip one up for everyone you know. They make for an adorable (totally) inexpensive, gift and can be totally customized to suit color preferences. Like a friendship bracelet for adults! Cotton rope...

Watercolor Wedding Inspiration Shoot

Ruth Eileen is one of our favorite photographers to work with here at SMP - not just because she is entirely lovely, but because we can pretty much bank on the fact that everything she touches turns to wedding gold. Case in point? This stunning beach inspired shoot. A collaboration with Making Me Events & a slew of other talented vendors, this is pure wedding eye candy.

DIY Ombré Linen Art

Art is one of those things that completely makes a room. It's that last little layer that instantly transforms a house into a home. But there's no question that the stuff can run you a pretty penny. Especially when you're looking for a piece of this scale. But with a little know-how, and a handful of linen, you can instantly transform your room into a thing of great beauty. Have no fear, we'll show you how! 3 yards linen fabric...

Mini Hot Fudge Sundae Cakes

If there's anything that can give our banana split cake a run for its money, it's these mini hot fudge sundae cakes. Tiny cakes topped with a cornucopia of deliciousness, all stuffed into the most delicious waffle bowl there ever was. These babies are the perfect thing to line your...
