Be My Guest: The Silly Pearl

Happy Fourth of July everyone! I hope you all enjoy the holiday - if you’re here in the U.S. If not, well, happy Thursday to everyone else. Today, while I’m still away, I have the wonderful and adorable Steph from The Silly Pearl holding down the fort.

Hello! My name is Steph and I write over at The Silly Pearl about the crafts I make and the thrifting I do in between cuddles with my six year old twin girls. I am so honored to be posting here on Homework today, as Carolyn is such a wonderful friend and great supporter of her fellow bloggers! And you all know about her amazing style, of course!

Is it the 4th of July already? Time to make a new wreath for my front door. I’m so excited to share it with you my Patriotic Sunburst Wreath today.

Patriotic Sunburst Wreath -- The Silly PearlI had recently made a larger sunburst wreath in more pastel-y colors for the spring, and I had just enough wood pieces left (game pieces from the thrift store) to make a smaller version of it in patriotic colors. I used a small wreath form from the craft store to anchor everything together.

Easy Patriotic Berry Cups via homework02Today in the United States, it’s Memorial Day – a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. And while we honor and remember these brave men and women, the long weekend also signifies the unofficial start to summer and backyard gatherings.

Be My Guest: alexis of jacolyn murphy

Today's guest is the wonderful Alexis of Jacolyn Murphy. Alexis has a custom party and paper business and her blog tells the stories of the things she creates.
In her own words…

I try to make everything a little more special and festive.
Recently a friend said to me,
"the party favors you did just made everyone feel HAPPY".
It made my day.
My custom party and paper business is a dream because I constantly ask myself,
"How can I make this really special"?
"What is going to make people stop and say...Wow?"
Life moves too fast.
My kids are growing up and I want them to try to enjoy all
the big events and the little things that happen every day.
The name Jac o' lyn Murphy comes from combining my children's names,
(Jack + Carolyn = Jac o' lyn)
because they are the inspiration for almost everything I do.


Alexis is sharing her special Fourth of July breakfast with us today. I know you will all enjoy this fun and patriotic party idea. For even more party ideas visit Alexis over at Jacolyn Murphy.

On July 4th we will wake up to
Spacious Skies and

from C (coffee) to shining C (cake)
A soothing breakfast buffet before a crazy, hectic day
Beautiful America...

Have a wonderful day!

Thanks for visiting!

Celebrations: patriotic firecracker straws

If you’re pressed for time here’s a quick and easy way to add a touch of red, white and blue to your Fourth of July.

Firecracker straws will make any beverage more fun and exciting.

These are milk shake straws. They’re extra wide to help with those extra thick shakes.

For these fire cracker straws, I used white crepe paper and some red paper from my stash. Fringe the paper and wrap it around the top of the straw. Use some twine to tie it off.

Make an extra thick shake and enjoy!

Celebrations: fourth of july rocket favors

Are you ready to celebrate the Fourth of July? If you’re having a back yard barbeque or get together to watch fireworks, these rockets would be a fun party favor.

To make these rockets, cut a paper towel roll or wrapping paper roll into 4 inch lengths. Wrap tissue paper around the roll and secure with tape. Cover the tissue paper with blue paper and use a glue stick to hold down the edge.

Cut a 2 inch circle and cut half way through the diameter to make the cone. Overlap the edges and use your glue stick to secure. Glue the cone to the top of the tube. Fill your rockets with confetti or candy, insert a bamboo skewer and tie the tissue paper with twine.

Add a fun label - I used lyrics from the Katy Perry song “Firework”.

Once you're done, sit back and get ready to watch the fireworks.

Thanks for visiting.
Come back tomorrow for the Inspiration Board Link Party
for more great creative ideas.
