Well, I did it. I DIY'd. The bride who only planned to DIY her cake. But I didn't do it alone! Oh, no! I enlisted the help of my maid of honor/BFF, and, eventually, my fiance.

A few weeks back, while looking for wedding decor inspiration in Pinterest, I came across this DIY tutorial for colorful Anthropologie-inspired scroll garland. The tutorial seemed really easy to followpersonalized gifts for her ideas, and after pricing out the colored card stock that I needed (recycled, of course!) at a few local stationery stores and online, trying this on my own seemed like a great budget-friendly decor option.

I started by getting the MOH, the lovely Francesca, on board and psyched. Then, I purchased my supplies.

Heavyweight paper/card stock, scissors, paper clips, stapler/staples and a glue stick…; I could TOTALLY hand this!

Armed with the tutorial, Francesca and I got to work. We took a few liberties with the instructions, though. Sans paper cutter (it was far too heavy to borrow and lug home from work!), we took each sheet of 8 1/2″; x 11″; card stock (another deviation from the directions…; whoops), folded lengthwise, cut, folded again, cut again. So each strip for the garland was more like 2 1/2″; or so wide, rather than the suggested 1 1/2″;. No biggie.

After we had our strips ready, we got down to business looping and stapling and DIY'ing. But things were looking a little…; off? Yes, off. We looped some more. But still…; the garland looked less like garland and more like strips of paper stapled to other strips of paper. Shoddy workmanship at best.

We shook our heads. I grabbed my laptop and swiftly went to Etsy to search for someone who could just make it for me (I told you I wasn't cut out for this!). And then, it happened.

My fiancé, who up until that point was drafting his 40th team on Madden '13 and amusing himself with our antics, says “;give me that!”; Then Matt does something I never thought I'd see in a thousand years…; he crafted! And you know what? He totally schooled us on making paper scroll garland.

My love, gettin' crafty with it.

A man of many talents! Following his careful direction of “;it's not like it's that hard!”; Francesca and I were reinvigorated and owned that paper scroll garland like it was…; something we owned?

Throughout the rest of the weekend, I loop-de-looped that paper like a boss. And still only finished four rows. But it's coming along! Check it out:

Our paper scroll garland…; four down, a zillion more to go!

The great thing is that now that I'm in a DIY groove, this is a super easy project to work on while watching TV, so I'm pretty confident that I can finish it before 2033…; Happy DIY'ing, BSBers!

Just in time for summer, Bunny Williams designed a variety of floral frogs to make flower arranging easier than ever. According to Bunny, anyone can create a beautiful arrangement if you’ve got the right tools. We’re not saying we didn’t take her word for it, but we did put her floral frogs to the test. We asked garden and entertaining expert, James Farmer, to help us create three unique looks using each one of Bunny’s floral frogs — and we think you’ll love the results every bit as we do.

Today I got to surprise the girls with the news that we are taking a getaway to Riviera Maya next week. To make it a little extra momentous (as if a trip to Mexico needs to be a bigger deal) I crafted up a couple of cute suede covers for their brand new passports. Um, they are excited.We will be spending a long weekend as guests of Generations Riviera Maya for the debut of Little Eko Chefs, a first-of-its-kind program, incorporating historical and cultural facts, eco-friendly food basics, and hands-on cooking opportunities. It sounds like a dream for foodie families like mine (my girls love to cook, bake, and eat, just like their mama.) After this launch weekend, the program will be held every weekday at the Little Eko Kids Club.Hosted by MasterChef Junior’s Season 1 Winner, Alexander Weiss, The Little Eko Chefs weekend is offered complimentary to guests staying August 15 – 17, 2014. All Little Eko Chefs participants will be awarded a special certificate after completing the class – offering them a personal memento of their vacations and testament to their new gastronomic skills!If you are thinking about joining in the fun, here’s a video that Jaime made when she visited Riviera Maya a few years ago, I hope we can sneak away to Tulum!These little passport covers were the perfect way to surprise the girls with the news of our trip. Read on for the simple steps to make a few of your own.
