Today I’m letting Ryan takeover the blog again, because let’s face it… I am not what you’d call “handy”! And, he did a pretty awesome job building the cedar planter, so I thought it would be fun for him to share just how he pulled it off. Also, I get e-mails, texts, and DMs about how he built this thing…
Buying a home for the first time is intense. You, quite literally, have ALL the feelings at the same time. You’re terrified you might not get the house you want, you find the house you want but it’s no longer available, you wonder why none of the houses your realtor is showing you look anything like the houses you’ve pinned on Pinterest.
We are back with part three of our Summer Backyard Series, and I am so excited I can’t stand it. Ryan has been showing off his handy work in the last two posts that you can see here and here, but now it’s my turn. There is little I love more in life than entertaining.
I’m so excited to share Part 2 in our Backyard series (see Part 1 here) with you today AND to have Ryan takeover for the day. Like I mentioned last week, our backyard was his project, and it would be cruel to not let him show it off.
First off, let me just preface this backyard DIY post with 1. This project was NOT done in a weekend! and 2. I did little to no work. I picked out flowers and pots… and that’s it. Ryan did this whole thing by himself with the exception of two days when he had a friend help him move rocks.
I am 100% obsessed with designing centerpieces and bouquets (this post and this post are must reads!). My flower obsession became even more real after our trip to the Philadelphia Flower Show. After hearing from the FTD pros first hand, there was just no turning back! So, I did what anyone would do – I came back to Florida, accessed my flower tool essential situation, and realized I needed to add a few pieces to my kit…
Mother’s Day is on Sunday, and I love gifting my favorite ladies little homemade bouquets. Ryan and I have been putting these together for Mother’s Day ever since we got married a few years ago (here’s last years!), and it’s become our tradition. Today I thought I’d show you how you can whip one (or a few!) of these up this weekend too!
