Pink Puffy Coffee Filter Garland

Coffee Filter Garland
I had my cute friend Shyla make this awesome Coffee Filter Garland for my daughters Bridal Shower and we also used it for the reception too! The colors and fluffiness of it is just the best thing ever!!!!
Food Coloring is the secret behind the color. Shyla played around mixing red and orange and water to get a gorgeous pink salmon color and then dipped small stacks of coffee filters in the color and laid them out to dry.

All over her house. After talking to my sister who had made one awhile ago.. She suggested drying them in the oven on a low temp but it's seems to me I've heard drying them in the dryer? Anyone ever tried that method?
After adding in some plain white ones to the mix she strung them on some string and made herself a gigantic Lei and did the hula! �� she is so funny!
Shyla used 200 that she dyed and probably another package of just white ones and squished them up once they were strung.
We used it for Emily's bridal shower
Here we used it at the reception over the fireplace
Then Emily used it at her house for mine and Madeline's birthday dinner!
I love to find ways to use something like this multiple times!
A huge thank you to Shyla for all her time and effort!!

The Groom's friend, Whitney, made the cake and his cute mom cascaded all the flowers down the side of it. It was so beautiful and soooo delicious! We also had Whitney make 100 cupcakes.

I used lots of my instant cake plates that I made and some that I bought to display all the cupcakes. All the beautiful peach, pink and coral colored napkins and navy blue plates were from Party Pail I love their selection! The gorgeous vintage buffet table is from The Shabby Chic Sisters Rentals all of their furniture and chandeliers just made the wedding reception amazing!

 The wedding cake is sitting atop of a galvanized tin serving tray that I found at Walmart that I flipped upside down and slightly bent the handles so it would lay flat and it worked perfectly!!  Bonus it was only $7.00!!

 If you are looking for a wedding cake and live in Utah please email me for Whitney's number..so reasonable and seriously moist and delicious cake. There was none left!

Paneling above fireplace DIY

My newest project- Paneling above the fireplace to bring in that beachy cottage look!
Paneling above fireplace tutorial, beachy cottage look
My latest project that was super easy and fun to do was paneling the area above our fireplace. I used what is called fashion board from Lowes. A large panel is under $10.00! It only took one board with lots left over.

This is the before...no texture just painted above the fireplace

We measured the wall space top to bottom and side to side and decided on 6" boards... Although he bottom board is 5 3/4" TIP: measure twice cut once LOL any way we had lowes cut the boards to our specifications.
We placed nickels in between to give us a slight gap...they would tend to fall out as we hammered but it gave us a guide.
We just stacked one on top of the other using finishing nails. TIP: this board is thin...if you had a huge wall to do I would probably use a thicker type of wall board or backer board so the nails don't go all the way through. For this project it has worked perfectly and we have had no lifting.
Because we have raw edges and a gap up at the top we used some simple already painted white trim.
After it was all attached to the wall we painted it with leftover white paint I had in the garage that matches my trim.

I love how it looks!
You can see my live video of the finished fireplace here on my periscope. You need the app to view it but hopefully some of you already have it if not download it it's kinda fun! https://www.periscope.tv/w/aKTAMDExODgzNDIwfDY0OTYyMjEw5PlQiPobkaIa1Qc4fGxNzLVAgV06VlwoT0hkAkkpmCA=
