Mother’s Day Quote Jar Printable

By Kelli Hall, Minted Event Stylist

Mother's day quote jar printable, kelli hallAmong the many things I’m learning about being a mom, is that kids like to make little observations about everything. Generally, I’ve noticed these fall into two varieties: The sweet kind (think “Mommy, I want to marry you when I grow up” ) and the spicy variety (like “Bottoms aren’t pretty, they don’t have any sparkles in them”). So, for a mother’s day craft, I decided to make something I’d love myself: Pretty containers to record and keep these little verbal gems. I’ve created some printable labels so you can also make your own quote jars, complete with punchy colors and bold patterns.


Design to Dish: Peach & Seafoam Spring Wedding

Written by Melissa of Lulu the Baker

I love weddings! As a teenager, I loved looking through bridal magazines, and by the time I got married, had quite the collection of wedding-related glossies stashed in my room. While every season has uniquely beautiful wedding details, Spring seems almost tailor-made for weddings. The blooming flowers, warming weather, fresh flavors, and soft colors of Spring make for a lush, romantic celebration.

To go with the sweet, peachy-pink color of this Peach & Seafoam Spring Wedding inspiration board, try these scrumptious Glazed Grapefruit Mini Cakes. They’re the perfect mix of sweet and tart, and their dainty size and pale pink glaze make them both delicious and elegant.

DIY Marbled Easter Eggs

By Jeran McConnel of Oleander and Palm

Easter is just around the corner and I’m ready for pretty spring pastels. This year I was so inspired by Minted’s Modern Marble Party Decor, that I wanted to carry the trend over to egg decorating. There are so many options when it comes to marbling, but most methods involve hard-to-find, obscure products or messy, oil-based paints. I wanted to make my eggs with simple, inexpensive ingredients that are also kid-friendly. Read on for the how-to…


DIY Brass Leaf Napkin Ring

By Jenny Batt of Hank and Hunt

I am totally in love with the foliage trend. Leaf prints and watercolors and bouquets of only ferns and foliage are hitting the ground running this Spring. I wanted to make some simple napkin rings that could bring a little more of the trend to the table. Like brass wall art from the seventies, these brass leaves glam up even the simplest of spring brunches. I am making a set for Easter this year and probably a few extra for friends. Making these brass napkin rings is as easy as cutting paper, really.
