Super Bowl Party Centerpiece and Favors

Super Bowl parties deserve some team spirit, but it doesn’t have to be over the top. In fact, you can make a centerpiece that will work for game day and can stay right there on your table…you just have to pluck out a few plastic football players! Turn a tray of fast-growing wheatgrass into a […]

Birthday Party Decorating

Here at the workshop, we love a true birthday dilemma and the other day we got one! Score one for our team. My Friend’s husband wanted to throw his wife a surprise birthday dinner. Not just any dinner but one that mirrored one I threw for my husband back in July because he said his […]

Cucumber Toner

My daughter is a seven-year-old make up artist. With a mom who barely manages with lip balm, it’s quite the mystery! While I’m not too keen on her being a painted lady of the second grade, a little fun in the beauty department won’t hurt anyone. Natural spa products are fun way to go: you […]

Snow Play

Children Make You Want to Start Life Over. – Muhammad Ali We were about two hours into our drive to our apple orchard in the Berkshires, when snow started falling. Despite the late date, it was the first sign of snow this season. I thought to myself, “UGHHHHHH! Now everything will be harder, grimmer and […]
