Easter is just around the corner and I can't believe how early it is this year, April 5th. I've been asked to host Easter and my house is very small so the thought of it is stressing me out! So naturally what do I do? I craft.... or eat dip. So why not do both. I had a left over salsa container (coincidence?) that I thought would make a great vase for the dinner table on Easter.

For me planning parties has always been about the details. Without the details there is just food and drinks. I always ask myself what will make this memorable?

I have been in my house about three months and I can hardly believe it. With the weather starting to get cooler and winter just around the corner I knew October would be my last chance to have a housewarming party and to enjoy my back yard. I was so nervous all week. Just my luck that the week of my party was a Nor' Easter. But luckily the weather gods were on my side! It rained everyday this week but Saturday and my lawn was some how not a mud pit!
Since you guys couldn't make it I thought I would share the party on my blog ;)Read More
