Don´t we all strive to take nice photos especially on the special days of the year!!! I personally like aesthetically pleasing picutures and I know not everyone agrees but in my opinion you do have much more joy with this kind of photos than having some trash or toys or anything else in the background you do not want to have. My meassurement of a great backdrop is do I want to frame this picture and have it sit on my sideboard ??!! A question you should ask yourself. If it is no a great homemade backdrop comes in handy and I am going to tell you how to get there.
Photoworthy Background for your Home Photos
For me personally it all starts with the balloon arch and then I go on from there. I make up my mind what colors I would like to have and then I go online and see what they offer. Most times I get a set but sometimes I buy the balloons individually. Totally depends.
So for this photo setup I went with a fringe curtain for the background and worked my way around it with a big balloon garland and some garlands. Since I had so much arch on the left I wanted to balance it out a little and got this flower string on the right. Cute and effective. You could also use this for kids pictures or some photos with your spouse.
The Valentine´s theme had to have bright red and whites and confetti balloons but there are no boundaries in terms of color combinations.
We love our Crunch over here. No matter the holiday or the ocassion, this is always a top seller in our home. It might be the taste – the sweetness from the white chocolate, the crunchiness from the pretzels and puffs and the hint of salt from the macadamia nuts. Whatever it is, it´s highly addictive and a match made in heaven !!!
The 4 key ingredients are always the same
– macadamia nuts
– little pretzels
– white chocolate
… and then I add seasonal things. I love to add little chocolate eggs for our bunny bait and sprinkles and M&M´s is vibrant Spring colors like green and yellow. I have also found little carrot sprinkles. How adorable are these.
Monster and Bunny Bait for Halloween and Easter
My favorite Christmas colors are red and green and a frosty white. This is also how our Christmas crunch looks. I add red and green M&M´s to the mix as well as little marshmallows and Christmas themed sprinkles. Can you spot the little trees???
As far as storage goes – if it lasts that long 😉 – you can use some airtight container like Tupperware or Mason Jars. If you want to gift it I would recommend little sheer fabric or plastic bags. You can add tags as well or little cards.
I have shared our art corner in our living room years ago and since we have moved everything into our playroom (reveal coming soon) we have added lots and lots of things to it. I have rearranged it several times but I think it finally looks good the way it is (might change my opinion in a little bit but for now it is all right, also this always depends on what art and crafts materials we have at the moment).
Art Cart Organization
We have the Ikea Rashult cart and it has the perfect size for all of our stuff. It has three stories and we have hanging container on one side to so it holds a lot of stuff.
The hanging container are also from Ikea but you can buy them on amazon or Temu as well.
Organizing has always been my thing but to be honest it is hard with two small children but definitely manageable. So let´s start with the top storey. I have a little wooden divider (it can be also used for mail or clutches) and I have put all of our sticker and drawing books in there. We have a bunch and this ways we can finally see what we got.
On the middle storey I have another divider to hold different kinds of papers/sheets. We also have felt sheets and foam rubber sheets here as well as sticker and a little basket for loose sticker and our googly eyes.
You can find all the small things on the lower level like washi tapes, erasers is cute shapes, stencils and anything else that could find a place in an art cart.
I have got the golden letters on the hanging bins from amazon and it definitely helps to clean up faster and easier when you know where stuff goes.
Happy first day of fall, y´all !!! Today marks the first day of the best season of the year. We are going to have a busy time ahead of us with lots of holiday decor and festivities.
I wanted to share this whole list of amazon Fall decor cause it will sell out fast like it does every year. Ordering early is key here. You can go classic bright orange or you do a neutral color theme with beige, gold and green.
The table runner is currently sitting on our dining room table and it is a nice chance to my usual orange
