The Perfect Care Package

School is about to start for my kids and when my daughter goes off to college, I will be sending her some fun care packages!

How great would it be to receive a Popsugar Must Have Box


The August Must Have Box is a special box because POPSUGAR Must Have turns 5 this month! It features surprises from some of Lisa's favorite brand obsessions to celebrate POPSUGAR Must Have's birthday! 

How could you not smile and be happy when you open this box? 




If you follow my blog or any of my social media channels, you know I am a Oreo girl, but I have to tell you, I am HOOKED on these Goodie Girl chocolate chunk cookies!! {I may or may not have hid them from my kids} *wink


Can we talk about this beautiful journal? I can not wait to start my day with a journal entry. I love to write down my thoughts first thing in the morning. Do you use a journal? 


Every girl loves to be pampered, right? The Bouncy Mask by First Aid Beauty and the Shoptiques.com gift card will definitely do the trick! 


The Cheers! confetti tray has me smiling from ear to ear to think about all the styling possibilities! You can serve up your favorite summer treats and sips or simply use it on your desk for your phone, camera and keys!

You know me, I love sparkles and glitter! The Meri Meri extra long birthday candles will make any ordinary celebration extraordinary!

4th of July Party Rocket DIY Tutorial

The links in this post contain affiliate links and I will receive a small commission if you make a purchase after clicking on my link.


We received so many comments about how we made the rockets for our fun Patriotic Party like it's 1776! So we want to share the tutorial with you on how to make your own. 

What you will need: 

Red and Navy Spray Paint
Red, White and Navy Tissue Garland
Striped party hats
Tape


Directions: 

  • Blow up the balloon
  • Choose your paint color and spray paint the balloon {note** if you are hanging on a white wall, you may want to only paint the front of the balloon so it doesn't get paint on the wall}
  • Let the balloon fully dry
  • Tape the "nose" of the one {see photos below}
  • Using the fishing line, tie on the tissue tassels to the bottom part of the number one {see photos below}
  • String the fishing line through the top two hanging holes on the balloon and tie a loop {see photos below}
  • Feed the fishing line through the top of the party hat
  • Attach to the wall
You are done! That was super easy peesy!! 







Now you have your own 4th of July rockets and it's time to enjoy the party!

Party like it's 1776 with Oriental Trading

This is a sponsored post written by me. BellaGrey Designs has received trade, products and/or payment from Oriental Trading in exchange for promotion. All opinions and text are my own and I only promote products I love.


The countdown is on for 4th of July celebrations, are you ready? If not, after reading this fun and festive post Party like it's 1776, you will be! 


DECOR
Keeping the party decor simple is key. We started with the backdrop, Oriental Trading has a great selection of both number and letter balloons. You can purchase either the silver or the gold mylar balloons and spray paint them whatever color you would like. We wanted the numbers to match our DIY "party" balloon and "rockets". Tutorial on the rockets coming soon.


TABLE
We like to use a tablecloth or runner, but would you believe this is not a runner but a pillar bunting? Before purchasing new items for your party, try "shopping" your home first. Clear glass vases serve as great jelly bean holders and give height to the table! We had the mini silver scoops on hand and added color coordinating ribbon to tie into the theme.

What You Need:





By simply adding ribbon to a white serving tray and laying the colored rock candy on top is a fun way to display them.


Another way to add height to your table, is by using these white candle holders to lift the colored gumballs.


Place festive candy in clear jars so your guests know what is available for their enjoyment and to stay with the theme. 


BEVERAGES
To hold the beverages, decorate your bar cart and set it next to your party table. Guests can serve themselves or grab an already made drink such as these champagne cocktail sparklers, which were served in clear vintage soda bottles. Super easy and oh so delicious. Recipe coming soon.

What You Will Need:






No 4th of July party is complete without the original Bomb Pops. We placed ours in a galvanized round tin with ice in the bottom to help the melting.




Hope you were able to get some great ideas from this fun party, we love sharing inspiration and ideas with you. Now go party like it's 1776!

Blush and Gold Watercolor Wedding Inspiration


Summer is here and so is wedding season! I was inspired by the beautiful blush pink hues and gold accents when I created this wedding inspiration. These colors are perfect for any bridal event, from the bridal shower to the bridesmaid luncheon!


A spread of delicate rose petals adorned the tabletop with beautiful peonies nestled in a gold geometric terrarium. My grandmother's beautiful depression glasses added the perfect amount of color and elegance. This wedding inspiration was not hard to pull together with the great selection of products from Oriental Trading






The watercolor place cards, invitation and large welcome sign tie all the elements together and can be found in the shop




With just a few pieces, it is easy to celebrate the Bride and Groom with sophisticated elegance.

DIY Toss Me Confetti Packets with Cricut Explore Air 2


Did you know, confetti is a traditional symbol of good luck for the bride and groom tossed in the air to wish them health, happiness and a long life together? I incorporated it into the bridal shower for the guests to have some fun. 

Today, I am sharing this fun DIY as part 2 of our Geometric Navy and Gold Bridal Shower Party with Cricut. If you missed this fabulous party, you will want to read all about it, here! I am pretty sure it is one of my favorite tablescapes to date!

I love confetti, so I thought it would be fun to add the confetti packets to this bridal shower. Who doesn't like to be showered with confetti? Ok, maybe some of you, but overall it is super fun! 

Guess what? If you don't own a Cricut Explore Air 2, we are giving one away!! Oh yes we are! More on that opportunity later, so make sure you read this post entirely! 

Let's get to the Confetti Toss Me packet. 


What You Will Need: 
In Cricut Design Space when I searched for diamond images I found this one {M3913B from Once Upon a Princess}


I found a font I liked and spelled out TOSS ME and sized it the the size I wanted. 


Now I was ready to load my Vellum. I inserted the Blue 1.0 Metallic Pen and made sure WRITE was highlighted on my Cricut Explore Air 2 machine so it would WRITE the words TOSS ME. {You will find this in the layers panel. Click on the font and at the top it will have the choice to Cut, Write, Score, Print. Make sure you choose WRITE}. Also, make sure you choose the color pen you are using.


Insert your vellum and let the Cricut Explore Air 2 do it's job! 


Once it is cut remove it from the cutting mat, it should look like this! Make sure you save your project. 


Now it is time to cut the confetti! This is the fun part! In the drop down menu at the top where you saved your project, click on new. Now insert the shape(s) you want your confetti to be. We chose the circle, hexagon, pentagon and the diamond shapes. 


We wanted the confetti to be small but not tiny, so we chose 3/4" or .75"


We made 26 of each design so we would have plenty of each design for the Toss Me packets.


Insert your Gold and Navy cardstock to be cut into confetti. Once they are cut you will have your Toss Me packet ready to go. Glue four of the five sides with Elmer's glue leaving one of the longest sides open to insert the confetti pieces. 

This step is OPTIONAL! You can sew the sides closed, which would be super cute, 


but I could not sew a straight line to save my life that day, so I opted to use the gold glitter washi tape to finish off the Toss Me packets. I simply taped each side of the packet and added a gold cord loop, in case I wanted to hang the packets or attach them to ribbon. 



Now you are ready to hand these super fun Toss Me Confetti Packets to all your friends!! 

Remember when I told you, you would have a chance to WIN you very own Cricut Explore Air 2 machine?

Good Luck!
