Christina, from the blog Full House, threw a very neat party to celebrate the 2nd birthday of her triplets! Since all little boys have one goal in life: to grow up and be big boys!, Christina took the idea and ran with it, creating this adorable Mr. Man celebration.
Chocolate lollipop mustaches proved to be a hit with all, and outfits made by Grandma – complete with mini ties (made from Dad’s old ties) – made the boys feel like Mr. Men. A clothesline displaying an assortment of ties and baby pictures adorned the yard in a creative spin on party flags.

I don’t know about you but I have a few of these folding chairs lying around… ready for guests and parties and everything else that comes our way (actually, now that I think of it, I should really get some more!). When I saw this Before & After from Apartment Therapy, I knew it would resonate with hostesses and DIY decorators alike.
You could always purchase these beautiful Anthropologie folding chairs (at $200 each, see below) to get an equally bohemian and modern look, or you could invest in a few neat fabric remnants, a bit of cushion foam and a staple gun… and have at your own collection! Guests will wow over your results and love the comfy cushions.

My living room is a room in progress: from day 1 of purchasing our little Spanish cottage in San Diego, it was my goal to get the living room in livable-lovable shape despite the rest of the construction in and around the house. This would be the room where we’d unwind from the day, congregate with friends, sip wine and read a book while a fire warmed our feet. My room requirements included friendly, cozy and just a touch of modern.
I’ll pause here for dramatic effect… and to keep this post short. But follow the jump to continue my living room adventure & learn about my new favorite site: Spoonflower! Read more »
