If you love bagels and lox as much as we do (we're obsessed!), you'll definitely want to try this yummy pizza idea. Maybe it's more of a flat bread? Either way... it's delicious!
We grilled a pre-made extra thin pizza crust on our outdoor grill for about 5 minutes... just long enough to toast it! Be sure to flip it halfway through. Grilling pizza crusts is something we're new to, but we've already learned that you need to really watch it because they can burn easily. After toasting the crust on the grill, cover it with cream cheese, lox and anything else you would enjoy on your bagels and lox (capers, onions, avocado, sea salt, tomatoes)! It's that easy! We made this for an afternoon snack and everyone in our office loved it.
What are some unusual flatbread or pizza flavors that you enjoy! Peach caprese is next on our wishlist! xo. elsie
We made these super simple tissue flowers for Emma's bachelorette party and I have recieved SO many requests to share a DIY post about them. They were really easy to make, which is essential when you are party prepping with a to-do list that's a mile long! Here's how we made them...
1. Cut a stack of tissue paper (6 pieces is great!) into a 10x10 inch square.
2. Fold them (or just "eyeball it") and cut your square into a large flower shape. The number of petals isn't important.
3. Twist and stagger the different layers of paper creating a full looking bloom, similar to a real flower. Stitch the middle of the bloom together with a needle and thread and leave the extra thread hanging of the back of the flower. Use the excess thread to tie each bloom to your string or lights cord. If you hang them on a lights cord, like we did, make sure that each bloom is not touching a light so that they are not a fire hazard. :)
It's amazing how much color and atmosphere these simple tissue flowers added to our porch! I'm so excited by the possibilities of adding different tissue elements to our lights strings for parties in the future. So fun!
We've been prepping decorations for Emma's bachelorette party later this week. Emma thought it would be fun to have a piñata filled with tiny little liquor bottles. "Um Yea!" we all said. :) So we made it happen and it was super easy... and it's hot pink! Seriously, there's nothing like "wedding week" to make us appreciate that rare project that was way quicker than we thought it would be. haha!
So, we bought a regular (colorful) donkey piñata at Target, spray painted it (inspired by Studio DIY & her amazing gold piñata!) hot pink, then filled it with teeny tiny (all plastic) liquor bottles, candy and confetti! I'm excited to tie it up in the tree and bust it open later this week. It's gonna be so much fun.
