Get Yo Wreath On

In celebration of the holiday season, us Beijos ladies thought it would be fun to have a little get together with some of our close girl friends, we like to call it a Beijos Lady Date!

We teamed up with our wonderful friends at DIG Gardens in Santa Cruz, CA who were kind enough to host and to give us all a lesson in wreath making!  The event was in the morning, and really, what better way to start your day off than with some good company, a little coffee and getting your hands dirty?!

Meg Perotti came along to play and to capture all of the fun!
This party is also featured on Style Me Pretty Living today!

DIY- Mini Pumpkin Planter

Happy Friday!

A fall DIY that is sure to be loved by everyone. Not only is it easy to do but its a pretty modern twist on a classic idea! You can be creative as you want! We went with a simple planter for our tablescape, but feel free to get a bigger pumpkin and fill it with various types of succulents to achieve a full succulent planter. This would be perfect for centerpiece for your table or decoration piece around your home.

Let’s do this!

yasminsarai-beijos-pumpkinplanterdiy-2

You will need:

Knife

Spoon

Mini Pumpkin (we love white ghost pumpkins, but feel free to use whatever one tickles your fancy)

Succulent(s)

Directions:

yasminsarai-beijos-pumpkinplanterdiy-6

yasminsarai-beijos-pumpkinplanterdiy-7

Start by cutting a hole all the way around the stem on the pumpkin, about ½ inch out from the stem (or more for a larger succulent).Doing a square works easier then a circle for cutting. Be careful to not cut the bottom of the pumpkin.

Pull off top of pumpkin, and spoon out and discard seeds.

Plant succulent of your choice, and add soil if needed.

So pretty!

Beijos Reclaimed Shelves & Planters

Going through the process of remodeling our fixer upper home, I discovered 1. My husband is pretty handy and 2. My husband is a green thumb.  When decorating my daughters room I had him make these hexagon shelves I really liked for her room.

He impressed me so much, so I started making a list of all the other things I wanted with that amazing recalaimed wood finish.  Plus he actually became pretty creative in this process combining his love for wood working and gardening by surprising me with these beauties for our backyard.

meganwelker-beijos-100 meganwelker-beijos-104

I loved these so much I told him he needs an Etsy shop!

meganwelker-beijos-101 meganwelker-beijos-103

If you love these as much as we do…inquire with Beijos, he is happy to make shelves, planters or something custom for homes and or events! They would be great gifts too!!

Interior: Styling a Console Table

Continuing our love for interior spaces today. We love to get a chance to peek into industry friends own homes as seen yesterday in our spotlight home tour of Jesi Haack. We love peeking into our own homes as well.

Styling a piece of furniture doesn’t have to be perfect. For myself, I often overthink styling parts of my home. Keep it simple, keep it stylish. I recently got my hands on a vintage sideboard that a neighbor was going to toss out. Crazy right?!?Here is how easy it is to style one:

IMG_4086

I first replaced the old knobs with these Facted Ory Knobs from Anthropologie to give it an updated look. They are a great place for knob selections!

IMG_4087

Add an art print. I picked a neutral colored one as throughout my home is mainly black, white, and mix of indigo + pops of colors. Play around if you should lean or hang the art print. I like the look of leaning art prints.

A tray that includes pictures frames of the family, a scented candle, and greenery. I love to add greenery details where I can in my home, may that be succulents, house plants, or flowers. You might recognize that geometric heart? We have used this The Duo Studio Geometric heart in many of our events, so of course you would find it in our own homes. You can actually find it in my home in a couple rooms. I love what we create so why would I not include some of our work in my home.

Adding a pop of color with some hot pink flowers in a simple vase. We have a sunday routine in our house to go to the farmers market, and find pretty flowers to add throughout the house. Its a fun tradition that we have been doing for a couple years, and the kids now expect it which I love.

IMG_4095

I created some height by stacking coffee table books, and adding a potted aloe vera plant on top. Mix up your greenery but adding contrasting textures. I keep wanting to add some hanging pots for more contrast so hoping to have an update soon on this! Styling never ends here in this house!

An airplant holder from West Elm (sold out), but I love this rocket geometric air plant holder as well found on Etsy.

Sketch Pattern Snack Bowl from Urban Outfitters add some decor on the table. Our bowl is filled with jelly beans right now, its potty training time in our house.

IMG_4083

Lastly, a potted plant in the Retro Bullet Planter from Shop Pigment that is placed in the corner.  I just love potted plants. I could have them in every house if I could. Its a great way to fill an empty corner.

See how simple that is! I guarantee you have all these pieces in your house that you can create the same look today!

xoxo
