Create your own decorative box set for less than $10

Decorating my new home has been so much fun!  I love decorating and re-decorating the shelves and built ins.  Decorative boxes make for awesome shelf accents because they are so functional.  They look pretty, can be modified to suit any decor, and they are the perfect way to keep things organized.  I love personalizing each decorative box and making it unique.  Nesting boxes can be placed on top of each other or scattered throughout a shelving unit.

Vintage Themed Birthday Party: adding glam and humor to "Over the Hill"

Vintage accessories used as party decor
Vintage Party Decor

A vintage birthday party is a fun spin for an over the hill party.

When my sister turned 40, we knew we had to celebrate in style, but as her little sis, I knew I didn't want to cross the line from fun to making too much fun.  So, I decided to decorate with beautiful vintage pieces to create a party that had both humor and was as glamorous as she is.  There are so many ways you can create Vintage Party Decor.  I started by getting inspired on pinterest and then looking around the house for accessories like burlap, lace, birdhouses, teapots and more.
