 Lisa Frost DIY table for Easter

Lisa Frost DIY table for Easter. Her working studio is located in her home for the family to enjoy!

DIY ideas in this photo…

1. Magnetic silk Flowers attached to table runners,

shop for silk flowers in 3 sizes, small, medium and large (Variety in size and color add interest)

next cut the stem off with wire cutters

plug in your GG (Lisa’s nickname for her Glue Gun), and glue positive magnet to flower back

now attach to your table runner with another magnet

2. Jelly Bean Centerpiece

WOW your family and friends with this EASY DIY Centerpiece! Here is what you will need:

1. Tall glass cylinder

2. Branch, spray painted white

3. Internal poster-board cylinder.

I created it by eyeballing the size I would need! I rolled up a piece of poster board and measured the diameter I would need by placing it inside of the glass (that’s what I call “eyeballing”). I noted the space needed for the jelly beans to fill in around it! Marked the size with a pencil. 4. Plugged in my GG…(hot glue gun). Glued the poster board into a cylinder and stuffed the cylinder with florist foam, added the tree branch and stuffed it with newspaper. 5. Set the paper cylinder inside of the glass. 6. Separated the jelly beans by color… 7. Arranged them by color… 8. Layered them inside… 9. Ta-da!!!!

Happy Easter… xox lisA

An Egg-stra Special Easter Table

www.ShowMeDecorating.com 40% Off Clearance Sale

An Egg-stra Special Easter Table !

Are you planning a luncheon, family dinner or Easter feast? A great looking table will complement your wonderful food!

I love to use and reuse bases from other projects and get double or even triple duty out of my investment. That is why I love working with artificial florals, garlands and greenery. They don’t die and have to be thrown away! I also like to use garlands down the middle of a table to decorate seasonally. This is perfect complement to serving buffet style, a sit down meal or a fun dessert display! Here are the supplies that I started with……(I did make a quick run to #Walmart to pick up new plastic Easter eggs and grass, so many colors and fun patterns)

Turquoise Table cloth (last Spring #Walmart) and Black and White Chevron table runner (birthday gift)

Hand wrapped and wired Easter Egg garland

9′ Garland Sky blue

The 9′ garland in Sky blue (from Rebecca’s Christmas decorations) was the base to attach all the fun Easter too. I started by fluffing and shaping it out and placing it down the middle of the table, allowing it to hang over the ends. The Easter egg garland is a great hand wrapped wired garland, easy to shape out and attach to the blue garland by twisting the greenery over in several places. (no hot glue gun needed). The 5′ Easter garland was centered in the middle of the 9′ blue garland. After a quick trip to Walmart for new plastic Easter eggs and grass After securing the two garlands together it was time to add a focal point, Rebecca’s Easter bunny and a yellow basket. I used the garland greenery and Easter garland to wire on the bunny and basket.

Do you create a good first impression? (2012)

I st impressions matter!

Will Your 1st Impression, Open or Close Doors?

You never get a second Chance to make a 1st Impression!

You CANNOT, NOT make a first impression.

 

People always form an initial impression about us, our homes, our offices, our businesses the 1st time they come in contact with us, in person, over the telephone or at our front door.

The experts differ on the number of seconds it takes to create a 1st impression, but between 7-17 !

Vision leads the pack of our senses used to make a first impression, smell is second.

Cleaning, sweeping, fresh paint, clean glass, cobwebs, etc (don’t miss up high)

 

“The 1st time I passed through the country of Switzerland, I had the impression it was swept down with a broom from one end to the other every morning by housewives who dumped all the dirt in Italy” Argentinean Journalist

Creating Egg-ceptional Shelves with Show Me Decorating!

Follow Us on Pinterest
Bookcases or shelves are the perfect place to decorate seasonally.

I choose 2 shelves for my Easter decorating and did not remove what was there but incorporated the decorative accessories into my display! I am short on storage space so I love this method.

Shelves decorated for everyday!

Now the Egg-ceptional transformation. I chose Easter items from all the goodies I had gathered for my piano top.

The bunny cake stand shows off this pair of white bunnies ready to deliver their eggs! Wonder if there will be any chocolate?

The large silver tray proves to be a great backdrop for the collection of easter decorations. I love to mix textures and finishes because it creates and interesting display, needlepoint Rabbit pillows, a wooden bunny, and an Eddie Walker Happy Easter resin plaque. I tucked in the Easter grass and plastic eggs to complete the look.

Easter Decorating Can Last Through Spring & Summer!

It’s Spring! I love to change out my door for the seasons but I like one that can last more than just one month. Now my bright and colorful doorway will be perfect for Easter and will go through the summer.

Step One: The Materials & Theme!

Last week I took a trip to a local floral wholesaler since Miss Cayce’s doesn’t have a spring line yet! I wanted good quality floral and ribbon. I was looking for great spring colors and good texture.
The Base!
I chose an interesting loop for my base. I loved the green mossy look with grapevine. It’s fun and different than the round transitional wreath that has been on my door since January.

Different Style from the normal wreath!

Add Textures!
Show Me Decorating has taught me that texture is good so I picked two different greenery backgrounds for my first layer.

Notice the difference in texture between each other and the loop!

Ribbon!
Such an important ingredient and one of the hardest to find! Good wired ribbon with great color will add a such an impact and finishing touch.

Colorful & Wired!

Florals!
I picked my favorite spring flowers-Zinnias and Gerber daisies. I also love geraniums but didn’t find any that were as real looking as these. The most fun part of decorating is using things that catch your attention or that you love!

The colors go with our themed ribbon!

Tools!

Essential to easy decorating, great scissors for cutting ribbon, floral wire to attach bows or floral to my loop, needle nose pliers for bending wire or flowers or snapping floral wire, chenilles and zip ties to attach greenery or to use on bows.

Gathering tools beforehand increases efficiency!


Step Two: Let’s Decorate!

Attaching the Greenery!
I use the zip ties to attach the fern to the loop! Much better than hot glue because I can move it around or next year if I want something different it’s easy to remove.

A Show Me Decorating Technique: Adding Texture!

Placing the Flowers!
I like to decorate on an upright surface so it was easy to hang on the door and place my flowers. I used our Show Me Decorating technique by starting with the largest and working my way down. If I didn’t like where I put it, I just pulled it out and placed somewhere else. I attached my flower stem’s in the middle with a zip tie. You could also use floral wire or a chenille. I cut the long white piece and the middle will be covered with my bow.

Place the flowers how YOU want it!

Bows!
Now, I’m ready for my bows. I tied a half bow with the lime green ( you can tie great bows if you have the Show Me Decorating Recipe for Holiday Decorating App), then I tied the Pink/lLime green polka dot with two loops on each side and tied the yellow embroidry across it. I then placed another half lime green bow with a long streamer to weave down my arrangement.

Adding the bows to the middle!

Finished!
I’m ready for Easter this weekend and Spring/Summer. I’m not a designer but I followed what Kathy and Becky have taught me and I don’t think I did half bad!

My Front Door Finished!

Quick Tips!

Good quality product with wire in the floral and ribbon. It makes all the difference in the world when you work with it because it’s forgiving and moveable! It will also last longer because if it get’s smushed in the attic over the winter I can fluff it or reshape it!
Happy Decorating!

Egg-tra Special Show Me Decorating!

Celebrate Easter! Who knew you could decorate with plastic eggs and Easter grass? The common plastic Easter egg is filled with candy, hidden, found and placed in a basket with Easter grass, however we
“Show You How” these inexpensive items can really add color to your Easter decorating!

This Egg-tra special display celebrates Easter!

Gathered Goodies

All the gathered goodies to choose from!

These rabbits and eggs are special and have been collected over many years. It takes me down memory lane thinking of my kids as they have grown up and now grandkids goodies are being added. The touch of silver comes from my collection of Author Court, the original Miss Cayce’s my grandmother, gave all the “girls” fun serving pieces, frames and accessories all in a bunny pattern, perfect to add to my Easter display! Now time to assemble our display. I started with Emma and Ethan helping to fill my candle jars with plastic eggs and Easter grass, you could also use clear vases or jars. These will become my main focal point and add height.

Look at all the eggs!

Ethans jar, layers of eggs, grass and a flower!

Emma’s jar!

The grandkids had a great time picking just the right color and size to fill their jars. We even found some small glitter eggs in bright colors at the Dollar Tree, and they filled in the nooks and crannies left by the bigger eggs. They are so proud of their creations! I enjoy including them in the decorating process and can even teach them their colors!

Ribbon adds the finishing touch!

The striped ribbon is not wired but I loved how it pulled all the colors together. I took a length of ribbon and tied around the jar.
I made my bow and used a twist tie (recycled) to hold it together. Lay bow on ribbon and tie a square to secure. Don’t know how to tie a bow? Learn how on the
Show Me Decorating App for iPhone’s & iPads

The taller jar has a bow too!

The short candle jar looks cute with a bunny in place of the candle and the taller jars shows off some of my favorite bunnies!
