Salad tongs, they surprise me how much I love having nice ones. Seems such an afterthought, but when you love serving and eating salads, then what you toss them with really matters. I have acquired several cool wooden salad bowls over the years, and also several sets of pretty tongs. Give the newly married couple a set to cherish and use for many years. This fun set uses vintage inspired beads, or even real vintage beads and jewels to make for the prettiest of forks and salad spoons. A DIY wedding gift idea that you can be guaranteed not to see somewhere else, this is one of my favorite projects out there to make for people, married or not.

In an effort to eat healthier, I am cutting out a lot of processed foods.  I’m going back to the basics, and dressing my salads with simply oil and vinegar is a good place to start.  I like to keep these ingredients on my counter, ready to be used.  But, if they are going to sit out on my counter, they have to be cute. So I customized a couple simple bottles I picked up at Target for $4 each.  Simple letters in crisp white give these bottle a clean modern look and feel. It was super easy and they look very European on my counter. These DIY Oil and Vinegar bottles make wonderful gifts.

Then I thought, it’s the time of year when we’re all spending more time outdoors than inside them.¬†Keep the threshold separating the two cheery and functional with¬†this geometric welcome mat! I purchased the rope matt from Target and used some paint I had laying around to create this masterpiece. They loved it and it looks fabulous on their new front porch.¬†¬†¬†

We absolutely love new traditions especially when they are this darling! It has become quite popular for wine loving couples to seal (by hammer and nail) a special bottle in a darling custom box during their ceremony ‚Äď only to be opened on their first anniversary. Gaahhhh‚Ķ are you dying ~ isn‚Äôt it an adorable idea!!! Who wants to eat year old cake anyway!? Seriously, I would have done this in a second if it was a¬†thing.. way back when we were married.

A well-appointed cheese plate is a staple at my house when entertaining. You see, they’re easy to create (as simple as buying things and arranging them on a plate!), and they also look impressive when done up, so as my friends and family can attest, they’ve become my go-to over the years. With the Holidays on their way, you can bet I’ll gladly be assembling a cheese plate or two, so I made myself a new set of DIY cheese knives to accompany the spread. (Pun intended!) The gem-like handles are inspired by faceted crystals and painted a deep, moody blue-green color, so they’ll work beautifully for both Thanksgiving and Christmas, as well as all the other gatherings along the way!
