The Inspiration Board: creative party spotlight ~145~

Hello warm weather! I’ve missed you so! Here in Southern California, it is spring. We’re enjoying beautiful warm days. I’m talking it’s almost time to break out the flip flops. Yippee! I hope if you’re still waiting for winter to melt away you don’t think I’m gloating. I’m just so excited for spring.

I loved seeing all the spring inspiration linked up this week. There was also loads of St. Patrick’s Day fun and oodles of yummy food. Thank you to everyone who stopped by this week. I’m so appreciative that you take the time to visit me here. If you didn’t have a chance to stop by, here is what I shared.

Happy Friday friends! I’ll see you on Monday. In the meantime, please enjoy the projects in the spotlight this week.

IMG_1776An adorable Alphabet Stenciled Stool by Delightfully Noted. I love the placement of the letters and the turquoise and orange mix of colors.

irish sausage rolls pastry shamrock st. patrick's recipe-003Now this is my kind of St. Patrick’s Day food. Shamrock-shaped pasties filled with hand-blended Irish sausage by Rook No. 17. Oh my, I could put away several of these.

how-to-make-elf-footprintsLooks like a leprechaun was visiting this kitchen. Learn how to make leprechaun or elf footprints to surprise your kids at Milk and Cuddles.

SAM_7346These are genius. Quail Eggs made with white and dark chocolate by Twigg Studios. Beautifully created in tiny egg molds they look lie the real deal but would be so fun to eat.

shabby-chic-embellished-bud-vases-bottlesPretty dollar store bottles get a vintage makeover by Alyssabeth’s Vintage. Lace and burlap trim with pretty buttons and cameos add just the right touch.

Tomato-Tortellini-Soup-55-466x700It may be turning warm here but the evenings are still cool. Cool enough for some hearty soup. This Tomato Tortellini Soup by All She Cooks looks so delicious and so beautifully served in those pretty white dishes.

IMG_8081Little Red Window has created the sweetest Travel Laundry Bag. Perfect when you’re living out of your suitcase to keep your laundry away from your clean clothes. This is so much better than the plastic grocery bag I used on my last trip.

Ceramic Bottle Vases paintedThis is a beautiful bottle transformation. One More Time Events completely changed the look of these ceramic bottles with paint and metallic glaze. Pretty knobs finish the look. Gorgeous!

DSC_2351(2)Darling wedding favors by Over the Apple Tree. If you’re on a budget for your wedding – or even if you’re not – these such a nice personal touch. Handmade soap, scrapbook paper and personalization. Perfect!

SL275511Beautiful burgundy organza flower pin by One Perfect Day. The flowers are so delicate and beautifully crafted. Just gorgeous.
