Monday Morning Inspiration 4.20.15

image

Hope your weekend was a beautiful one. This week I have a collaboration/diy post using MagnaMagic that I can’t wait to share. I used their magnetic chalkboard paint for a client and my own home. I noticed the trees are budding here which brought a smile to my face on this gloomy cool Monday. The weather is a contrast from Friday where we had a teasing of 76 summer sunny temps. So this post is filled with what Spring should look like. I hope it inspires you a bit…

Arranging tables under a cherry blossom tree or an area of a yard or park with a pretty flower garden, can have an impact on the look of the event without spending a fortune for floral decor. Last summer I went to a backyard wedding and the owner of the home had the yard decked out with water fountains, rose bushes and all sorts of pretty landscaping.

Outdoor spaces and inspiring places

image

It finally felt like Spring this weekend here in Milwaukee with Easter reaching 75 degrees (77 according to my phone). I was a happy camper and it made me think of how I need to get my patio life together. Browsing stores like Target and Pier 1 can really make you want to buy-every-dog-on-thing. However a few bright items can jazz up any blah outdoor space.

Fabric Walls
This makes me want to buy a funky pattern and hang it on the walls of my patio with velcro. Actually, I may just do that. It can also hide unsightly areas. Just make sure you use outdoor fabric.

Sun Shelter
Scalloped umbrella tables are pretty much everything. They aren’t cheap but worth the splurge if you live in a climate that utilizes outdoor areas more than 4 months out of the year…

Coffee and flowers……

image

This hasn’t been the greatest week. Seems like I’ve needed more coffee than ever and I hate feeling dependent on coffee to get me through the day. So if you have somw tips, please shoot them over.

Impromptu party and not enough vases? Use drinking glasses…

image

You can always run to the nearest grocery store for flowers but buying vases? Costly and expensive. So pull out those glasses and separate the flowers for a quick and easy centerpiece.
