Friday Guest Blog Interview: TomKat Studio!

Guest Blog Interview: TomKat Studios!

I’m so excited for today’s feature!! Kim, of TomKat Studio, is a true ‘mom-preneur’: she runs a fabulous blog, an adorable Etsy shop and was recently the ‘Mama Power’ feature in one of Arizona’s top city magazines! Even TomKat is derived from her two little ones, Tommy + Kate. So when I asked if she wouldn’t mind sharing her favorite entertaining design & trend secrets… I was so excited for her ‘yes!’

If you haven’t heard of the DIY diva, you must check her amazing style out — I would include her among my favorite inspirations, especially in the paper genre (check out her Etsy site and you’ll know what I mean!). I asked Kim if she would share her recent Halloween projects from a custom dessert buffet (featured in the Houston news! Check out the clip!) as part of our {Halloween Feature Friday Guest Blog Interview!}

DIY Dead Floral Centerpieces

Dead Floral Arrangement

So I’m working on a spooky little centerpiece for the Halloween appetizer and dessert table at our party this Saturday and thought I’d try to create dead (as in pitch black dead) arrangements. I think the table will turn out great when it’s all together!

I started with fake flowers from the local craft store and applied a generous coat of black spray paint to each side.

The focal point of the table will be a shadowy branch arrangement — and so I spray painted several long sets of branches to complete the look. Can’t wait to see how it turns out!
