Every year I get ambitious and send out holiday cards to everyone I know. Crazy? Maybe a little bit, but I make it easy on myself by using Tiny Prints. They have such a great selection of card designs to choose from, and all I have to do is upload a photo. Boom. Easy peasy and they’re magically printed and on my doorstep lickety split. This year I also purchased their personalize stamps, and oh my, we’ve received so many compliments.
Since I’m such a fan, imagine my surprise when I received an email last week from Tiny Prints! They asked me to take a look at their New Year’s Eve Party Games Generator. Well, with us just wrapping the New Year’s Eve Wildwood Speakeasy Party, how could I not? ERMERGERD! Yep, I’m on board and ready to slip into my party shoes! This thing is so cool you guys and completely free to use. Even better, am I right?
Welcome to the Found & Foraged linky party! Phew you guys! I’ve finally completed all my Christmas shopping and with 5 days to spare. How are you fairing? Are you scrambling around like crazy, or are you cool, calm and collected? I still have to wrap but made it. This year I’ve felt really behind, and I’m unsure why. Maybe it’s because I was too focused on our New Year’s Eve partying? But I’ve made it unscathed and only slightly frazzled, and that’s all that matters.
Last week’s Found & Foraged really kicked the holidays into high gear for me. All the beautiful projects and recipes you posted. Everything was oh so beautiful. We’ve loved visiting your blogs and getting to know each and every one of you. Again, we thank you for taking the time to link up here and share a bit of your lives with us. PLEASE NOTE! We are going to take next week off December 27th. And resume with the linky party in the new year, January 3rd.
With that being said, tonight we welcome you to link up your DIY’s, house projects, vintage finds, shopping scores, upcycled projects, foraged decor, recipes…whatever you have been working on! We host this linky party every Saturday at 8PM (Central Time). So be sure to add us to your calendar and check back weekly to party with us!
Hello! Hello! You guys it’s Thursday! Which means you have LESS then ONE week before Christmas, and those boxes aren’t wrapping themselves. Don’t you fret little ones, I’ve got you covered. Today I’m going to teach you how to gift wrap like a professional with this easy step-by-step tutorial on how to make a Pom Pom Bow.
When Grace from The Big Reveal ask me to design holiday gift tags for her “Creative Ways to Package Holiday Cookies” post, I kinda jumped for joy (and declared myself insane). That’s totally normal, right? I know, I know, it sounds weird especially since we spent the entire week cranking out the Wildwood Speakeasy New Year’s Eve party last week. Grace had leverage though. She bribed me by showcasing them on Twin Cities Live today. And I can now say I was on TV…well, kinda. Ok, ok, my holiday gift tags were on TV with Laura’s nuts…technically NOT me, but hey, I’ll take it! At least I can say I know a TV star! Besides, I had started designing these a while back but became too busy to finish, but still itching to complete. This was just the nudge shove I needed to put on the final touches (and finally decide on a color scheme). I mean, they’ve only been sitting on my desktop since October. (I might be a bit of a procrastinator.)
Hello my friends! Just popping in to let you know I’m over at This Silly Girl’s Life with a new cocktail recipe that is bound to brighten your New Years Eve! It’s called a Champagne Smash, and it originates from one of my favorite restaurants here in Chicago, Bavette’s Bar and Beouf. Champagne tends to be the beverage of choice when I’m out on the town, and one can’t argue with a little bubbly to start the night out right. Because champagne just doesn’t keep like wine, I don’t indulge much at home mainly because I’d never finish a bottle. And if I did, I would hate myself come 5AM with my toddlers jumping about in my bed, telling me the bunny’s awake. Don’t ask.
Happy Saturday you guys! Did everyone have a good week? Not too shabby over here at House Of Hipsters. I’ve been super busy putting on a totally not real, wish it was real New Year’s Eve party called the Wildwood Speakeasy with my gals Grace and Laura. We submitted a mood board a couple months back in hopes to win tickets to Alt Summit. Meh, we didn’t win but no hard feelings here. Conned our boys into letting us go anyway! Woohoo!
We still really wanted to throw this party though, even if it was a virtual party with all our wonderful readers. So, over the past week we’ve been posting DIYs and party ideas every single day! Yowza! I need a disco nap! If you’re hosting New Year’s Eve this year and need some party ideas check it out! I hate to toot my own horn, but man we knocked it out of the park!
But enough about me! Tonight is about you guys! Last week we had so many fun posts. We are thrilled to have you back and can’t wait to see what you have been working on this week. Link up your DIY’s, house projects, vintage finds, shopping scores, upcycled projects, foraged decor, recipes…whatever you have been working on!
We host this linky party every Saturday at 8PM (Central Time). So be sure to add us to your calendar and check back weekly to party with us!
Since the three of us have been mad scrambling, we decided to each pick our own features this week. Be sure to check the other 2 blogs to see if you were featured, because as of right now, even I don’t know who they picked! But here are mine! Can’t wait to share them with you!
IT’S DAY 6! I don’t mean to shout, BUT IT’S DAY 6!!!!!! I hope you guys have had as much fun with the Wildwood Speakeasy New Year’s Eve party as we have. I know I’ve said this before, but seeing it all come together has been so exciting. This past week has been like Christmas every day. Each morning I race to my computer to see what Laura from Avery Street Design and Grace from The Big Reveal have written and created. Since we aren’t neighbors, we really don’t get to see the full post until it goes live. Just a couple texts of pictures to make sure we’re all on board. Each post has been so insanely beautiful, I can’t even stand it. These ladies are truly talented and working with them has been just dreamy. But alas, all good things must come to an end. For our grand finale, Grace is going to wrap things up with a tutorial on gorgeous DIY Vintage Headpieces.
Hello my friends! It’s Day 5! We promised more and today we have more! Free New Year’s party invitation you can download for your very own Wildwood Speakeasy New Year’s Eve theme party! So what do you guys think of this shindig so far? Is one of my readers going to host this puppy? I better be getting one of these invites in the mail. I’ll be there with bells on cuz I’m crushing on this bash hard. Seriously, everything is just too amazing! As each post goes by it just keeps getting better and better! Well, let’s get to the goods here, shall we?
So are you guys ready for this soirée? Almost there, but we’re still missing a couple crucial elements. Hmmm, well, it would probably be a good thing to have some food and games! Yep, that’s right, on Day 4 of The Wildwood Speakeasy New Year’s Eve party, Laura has tasty eats and activities for you over on Avery Street Design.
Hello! Hello you guys! It’s day three of the Wildwood Speakeasy New Year’s Eve theme party! Are you excited? I know I am. Whoohoo! Seriously you guys, y’all are watching this unfold and come together just as we are. It’s so exciting to see something you’ve kinda just dreamed up in your head become more then just a pretty picture. It’s our little Alt Summit baby! Someone HAS to throw this party. It’s the B.O.M.B.!!! And it’s just as Laura described it a couple months ago as my tired eyes were trying not to close while Google chatting. A bunch of rich kids drinking glam-slash-hipster-style in the woods. It’s a little luxe. It’s a little hipster. It’s a little rustic. And a whole lotta exclusive. Are you guys ready for a DIY photo booth backdrop? Everyone, in case you’ve missed her (Seriously, not sure how you could, she’s gorgeous!) meet Grace from The Big Reveal!
