Belle Tips: Spring is Springing (Succlent Tips)

Belle tips, Home Life, DIY, EntertainingHolly WilsonComment

Hey Belle Hey-

Spring is almost here and I don’t know about you but the PGP Squad is so ready for it. One of my favorite things about spring is watching new flowers begin to sprout. In the PGP office we have a new spring plant obsession…SUCCULENTS- keep reading for our tips in caring for such lovely greenery.

Belle Tip 1: Find the right pot- Succulents are such lovely plants and you don’t want the pot to overshadow it’s simple elegance. We have one succulent in a tea cup that we love and used our Cricut to make some pots out of acrylic and E600 glue that you can get at your local craft store.

Belle Tip 2: Don’t forget the rocks- Succulents are such a lovely plant and adding rocks not only keeps them from being over watered but it adds beauty to your pot design.

Belle Tip 3: Be Gentle- I had to learn this the hard way….make sure when you are moving your plants that you are as gentle as can be to preserve the petals.

DIY, Entertaining, girlbosstips, Party Tips, PartyHolly WilsonComment

Hey Belle Hey-

I’m not really sure where the idea of Friendsgiving started but it’s one of my favorite concepts….I love a reason to have a little Belle Chat Time with my BFF’s. To help you throw the posh’s friendsgiving keep reading for some of our best Belle Tips!

Belle Tip 1: Gather your Belle BFF’s

blog2.JPG

Invite your Belle BFF’s to your FriendsGiving Invite using a special invite or an e-vite…don’t forget to include the location and time that your guests should arrive

Belle Tip 2: Provide a Posh Treat

When throwing a FriendsGiving, you have a number of choices about the food…you could mirror a Thanksgiving meal or decide to keep it simple with appetizers or things that you may not always see on your Thanksgiving table.

Belle Tip 3: Have Party Activity

Blog1.jpg

When hosting a soiree, it’s important to have an activity that can connect people together- especially when everyone together may only know the hostess… Try a grown up version of pin the tale on the donkey and have your guests write what they’re grateful for on the wall. You can also use the activity on our previous blog post: the Belle Gratitude Challenge

Belle Tip 4: Have a thank you (DIY Belle Thank You)

blog4.jpg

The last tip for a Posh FriendsGiving Soiree is to make sure you have a thank you- you can certainly do a traditional Thank You card but to make your event even more engaging consider a DIY succulent bar…guests can make a succulent bowl and plant them in their design…it provides an opportunity to get creative and say thank you to your guests at the same time.

It’s Almost Fall Y’all

Home Life, DIY, ProductivityHolly WilsonComment

Hey Belle Hey

I don’t know about you but the season change to fall is one thing I really enjoy. I love the color changes of the leaves, a sit on the edge of your seat football game, and of course cider and monogrammed plaid.

One of the best things about fall is the opportunity to create personalized greeting cards for my family and friends. For this unique DIY you will need:

1. Blank Cards (you can whip some up on the Cricut or if you are in a rush grab a box from your craft store like JoAnn’s kite I did) 

2.Hedi Swapp Minc Foil Machine & Foil (I used the standard gold foil)  

3. A MINC ink toner pen  

 

While the foil machine is warming up take a moment to write a fall saying on your cards and then trace the quote using the ink toner pen (Tip: If you enjoy the Frixon Erasable Pens avoid this project because the heat makes the ink disappear)

Once you have placed the toner over your fall message cut your foil to cover the project and place both items in the proctector sheet with the shiny side facing up. 

The machine itself will do the rest of the work-simply wait for the project to come out of the machine and open the proctector to reveal your foiled project.

Belle College Life-DIY Message Board

DIY, Organization, ProductivityHolly WilsonComment

Hey Belle Hey- 

My day job for some time has been to serve as an Academic Advisor on a college campus. One of my favorite things about college life is the idea of decorating your residence hall (DORM is a bad word on college campuses...lol). 

One thing that I love to keep my space neat for quick notes is a message board.

For me there's usually only ONE problem with message boards....THE COLOR

So to fix that follow my simple tips below!

Sprinkle Party -Yes Please!!

Entertaining, DIY, Celebration, PartyHolly WilsonComment

Hey Belle Hey- 

Nothing says summer to us like a party...especially an ice cream party in the summer with sprinkled. Keep reading below some tips...

 

Blog1.jpg

One of our favorite things about hosting a sprinkle party is given our guest the opportunity to design their own ice cream. Truthfully this is a party for the young and young at heart. One thing to keep in mind when hositing this party is CHOICES- Taking an old tiered basket allows you to display cones and cups in a fun way and provide a way for your guests to choose their favorite way to eat ice cream

SAY SPRINKLES...

Another creative way to bring an ice cream party to life is a customized backdrop. We used an old clothes hanger rack (you can usually grab one at Target for no more than 20 bucks), white  fabric, and blew up the skinny balloons to look like sprinkles. The paper lanterns were brought at a local party story (you can easily take solid color lanterns and draw sprinkles on them )..

Not only do you have a perfect photo backdrop but you have a themed space for your guests to sit and enjoy their ice cream.

Spring Cleaning: Bathroom Refresh

DIY, Home LifeHolly WilsonComment

Hey Belle Hey-

I don't know about you but this year I feel like Old Man Winter refuses to allow spring to blossom... One of my favorite things about a new season is that the change gets you in the mood to change out the scenery in your rooms...

I have been wanting to refresh my bathroom so I decided to whip out my Cricut & iPad to shift my Master Bathroom into a His & Hers Update...

  • My Items: 
  • Wooden Toothbrush Holders, Tray, Soap Dispenser- Click Here to Grab Yours
  • Cricut & Cricut Design Space
BathroomUpdate.jpg

 

Step 1: Find or write out the words (Soap, His, and Hers)- I pay for the monthly subscription for Cricut's Design Space and I was able to find the words without having to do a ton of design work.  

Step 2: Once you have your design ready to go- Cut the design out on Vinyl (Tip: since it's not iron on you don't have to remember to mirror the image)

Step 3: Once you have your images placed on your wood items take a moment to seal them with a water resistant sealant. This is important especially in places like the bathroom where water can get easily hit your projects.
