Hello everyone. Did you have a sunny weekend? In Amsterdam it has been wonderful. So sunny and warm. Summer can come. Therefore, I decided to find some inspirations for our upcoming birthday celebration in our garden. My boyfriend’s and mine birthdays have been in March and April already. We wanted to wait with the garden party until we have nicer weather. Hopefully it stays like this and it will be amazing weather mid of June. This is where we will host our BBQ Party for our friends.
I intend to spend too much money on the decoration rather than the food. But the guys are anyway responsible for the meat, right? So why not focus on what I’m best at? The decoration and making everything look pretty for our guests. Since there is still enough time to organise and prepare some DIYs, I started with collecting some Party decoration ideas, which I will try to use later on.
I have been very creative today and started an easy, yet lovely DIY project for the table decoration. I will share it with you as soon as I’m fully ready. I can tell you, it’s going to be colorful. First, I have some elegant styling ideas for a summer garden party for you after the jump. Continue reading
Hello and Happy Weekend everyone. Last weekend I have been busy working on a nice DIY project that I’d like to share with you today. After the last Real Talk I thought I need to share something more cheerful, colorful and bright with you.
It all started a few weeks ago where I wrote about decorating small spaces. After we moved into our sweet home we first started working on all other rooms except the guest room. We never really new what to do with it, since there are no kids yet and also not guests everyday. That’s why we invested more time and effort in making the rest of the house cozy. However, after a while I had this urgent need to do something with my free time. Since I knew what color means, I loved everything creative, but I never thought I would end up putting my work on a blog, cause at that time, the internet wasn’t even existing. Moving to Amsterdam and being inspired by diversity and creativity everyday I wanted to do get hands-on as relaxation after a stressful work day in a big organisation. So there was the blog, but no space for all my things. You know the end of this story; The guest room had a purpose. I wanted to transform it into a craft room / home office where I can garner my ideas and inspirations and find freedom to forget all routines around me.
The room is very small, so I cannot have one of these amazing huge studios I’d love to have and that I pin about everyday. Therefore, I started with gathering decoration ideas for small office spaces and showed you some examples. Like this I could imagine how our small room might look. During that process I got really inspired by those pin walls / mood boards that you can use for collecting postcards, paper items, ribbons or whatever floats your boat.
Seeing these pin walls and looking at the white wall of my newly declared craft room, I was sold. Yes, I want that pin wall there too.
I think it is a wonderful tutorial and DIY project for a rainy weekend. I put together all steps how to make your own pin wall and how to decorate it. Have a look at all steps and the list of materials you need after the jump. Continue reading
