Thirsty Thursday Caramel Milk Tea


Thirsty Thursday Caramel Milk Tea 

I hope you don't mind, but I have become a little obsessed with milk tea.  There are so many ways it can be made and I love them all!!!  Here I will be sharing one with caramel.  We are still having some pretty hot weather and although some are finally getting some cooler weather, I am still enjoying  cold beverages, but this beverage can easily be served hot for those of you who are actually lucky enough to be enjoying some cooler weather.  I am so ready for some cooler Fall weather... I have had enough heat.

Milk Tea at One More Time Events.com

Even though I still enjoy a nice cup or two of coffee in the morning and usually a glass of ice coffee in the afternoon there is just something about the creamy taste of milk and tea that is so satisfying to me.

However I have read that hot teas can actually give you a cooling down effect because of the caffine in the tea which helps transform the fat in the body into energy causing you to sweat, but you don't feel hot.

Fall Wine Glass Hydrangea Centerpiece


Fall  Wine Glass Hydrangea  Centerpiece

 After decorating  parts of my family room I still had a few dried hydrangeas left over to carry out the Fall hydrangea theme around the family room.   If you didn't get a chance to see them you can see them here  hydrangeas on the vintage window coffee table and mantel.

Are you ready for a SERIOUSLY delicious Pumpkin Spiced Tea Latte?  I am back at the Coffee Station creating another Latte for you!   This isn't your normal Pumpkin Spiced Latte and you won't be cutting back too many calories with this one.  In my book of  Latte's... it is one of  the best Pumpkin Tea Lattes I have ever made and is worth every calorie of deliciousness.   This recipe is for a pitcher full...after you make this you will see why you will want to make more than one single servings.



Starting with a layer of Pumpkin Spiced Caramel Sauce. OK are you drooling?  I found this sauce at Walmart (not a sponsored post) in their produce section.  I started drooling as soon as I saw it.


Layered with the rich and delicious Pumpkin Spiced latte mixture....drooling yet?  I am,  just looking at these pictures doing this post....

You will want to have a spoon handy with this Pumpkin Latte,  to stir in the creamy whipped topping  infused with cinnamon,  down into the pumpkin spiced latte and into the rich and creamy caramel sauce.

Can you just taste it now?   If you like Pumpkin Latte's your going to love this one!

Are you ready for the recipe?

Here it is.  You will probably be a bit surprised when you see what is in it.
Ingredients
4 tea bags
2 cups fat free half and half (cutting back a little on the calories is better than not at all)
2 cups water
1 cup pumpkin spice cookie mix
pumpkin spice caramel dip

In a sauce pan add 2 cups water and 4 tea bags,  bring it to a full boil
remove from burner and let the tea bags steep for 2 to 3 minutes,  remove tea bags.  Let cool.

In a pitcher (using hand blender) or a blender, mix 2 cups fat free half and half, 1 cup dry pumpkin spice cookie mix.  Blend all the ingredients together until all the cookie mix is completely blended and no clumps are apparent.
Add your tea and mix well, pour over  ice, top with whipped topping, drizzle caramel and sprinkle with cinnamon.

* to reserve the rest of my Pumpkin Spiced Caramel sauce,  I placed it in one of my oil and vinagar cruets which is microwaveable.   All I have to is heat it up for a few seconds and it's ready for my next Pumpkin Spiced Tea Latte!

Outdoor Fall Decorations with Pallets


Outdoor Fall Decorations with Pallets

When decorating my front porch for the Fall,  I always  think of it as an extended room leading into what’s waiting inside to welcome in the Fall Season and everyone that comes and visits.


I like using same like colors on the front porch and extend them into  the entry of my home.



Although our front porch is very small, I really do enjoy decorating it for the seasons.  

 Last year,  I used an old screen door with an old trunk filled with faux pumpkins, but since then I  have repurposed and transformed the old screen door into my coffee station.  




 I had to think of a different way on how I wanted to decorate the porch.  So this is what I came up with for this  year. 

 I love  decorating with pallets,  one reason, they are free and second they are so much fun to work with like here where I used  a couple of  pallets  and filled them with some Fall faux flowers and pumpkins.  To decorate the pallet platform  I added   a bale of hay some more faux pumpkins and to complete it I added a filled grain sack.   I love how it brings in a real rustic Fall setting 


Today (Monday) I shared how I put this pallet decor together over at Fine Craft Guild  If you would like to  see how this was done.





I really love how this turned out and how it says everything about Fall in a big way. On a small porch. 


 Do you decorate your porch?  If you do and want to share it... Share it One More Time Party is still open, would love to see how you decorate your porch for Fall.

Decorating Ideas for a Small Bathroom using Stencils


Decorating Ideas for a Small Bathroom
*Today’s post is made possible with the help of Tulip For Your Home and Blueprint Social.  All opinions are myown.
Hi Everyone,  As many of you know I have been working on my very small master bathroom and shared a post on an organizing idea using a towel rack and a few wire baskets to organize some of my bathroom essentials.

Since that post I have gotten a  little more progress done on this very small area in the bathroom.   Only this time I have painted and stenciled  a small freestanding shelf,  along with a couple of decorative items that helps organize even more bath items.

Bathroom Vignette with stenciled items at One More Time Events.com



Adding Furniture to a Small Bathroom 

Adding freestanding shelves to a small bathroom is the best idea to give another place to hold more bath items,  finding the right size to fit in a small area of the bathroom not only helps keeping things organized, but allows for the items you need right there in your bathroom area.

Rather than by just placing the packaging on the shelves,  I stenciled  a few glass jars to hold  bath salts, soaps wrapped with parchment paper and tied off with some twine and some small rose shaped bath soaps to add more interest to these items I stenciled.

How to Stencil on Glass


I used a 8 X 8 Tulip Home Decor stencil and Tulip Spray adhesive.  Before I go on I want to share how I love these new Home Decor stencils.  One, they have arrows punched out for perfect placement  and two, they are very durable and  by using the  Tulip adhesive spray makes it even  easier  to stencil any project. Even these round glass jars!  

All I did was spray the stencil, then wrapped  it around the glass and rolled on the paint.   Now how easy is that!

As you can see in this picture I used various parts of the stencil to make each one the same, but a little different.


Stenciling on Glass at One More Time Events.com

How to Stencil on a Decorative Tray

 I cleaned the stencil which is very easy to do by using just soap and water.

8X8 Stencil to decorate Tray at One More Time Events.com


 I again sprayed my stencil with the adhesive and by using the arrows I centered it on the tray.  The stencil was larger than the tray but because of the durability and the flexabilty of the stencil and  using the adhesive, all I had to do was spray the stencil, press and form it to the tray using  their (Tulip)  roller,  I just  rolled it in the paint and then on to the stencil. 




Decorating Ideas for a Small Bathroom using Stencils at One More Time Events.com


I wanted more of a muted color,  so I applied some furniture stain (which matches the refinished free standing shelf) I loved how this paint dried so quick and how it took the stain and didn't smear or take away from the original pattern.

Stenciled Bathroom Tray at One More Time Events.com


After all my decorative pieces were done, I wanted to create the same look, but this time I used their 14 X 14 stencil... yes they now have a 14 X 14 stencil they designed for Home Decor.   Love it!!!
Oh the possibilities with these new sizes.


Supplies for Stenciling at One More Time Evens.com





Supplies used for these Projects
  • 14” x 14” large stencil
  • 8” motif stencil
  • Tulip Soft Paints
  • Stencil Spray
  • Roller


Using the same technique as I did above,   I stenciled the top of the free standing shelf only using the 14 X 14 stencil. 


Using stencils to decorate at One More Time Events.com








     Before when I did any kind of stenciling,  I would have to use tape to hold the stencil down and it didn't always work so well, it held it down around the edges, but not in the center, it caused some paint to bleed through and left me not really wanting to stencil anything because of the hassle of it.  

    I love the look of a stenciled project, now I am looking around the house to see what else I can stencil.  Seriously, don't you love the patterns of these stencils?  What's nice is the variety of patterns that are offered and can be used over and over again.   How about some pillows or canvas for wall art or what about a wall?  Again...Oh the possibilities!!!


    You can find these items to purchase online at iLovetoCreate.com. You can also

    Creating a Natural Fall Arrangement with Hydrangea's


    Creating a Natural  Fall Arrangement with Hydrangea's

    Creating a simple and inexpensive  Fall arrangement in just a few minutes couldn't be any easier than this Fall arrangement that was made using some florals from the yard, in this case it was hydrangea's that had died out into some rich hues of browns along with a beautiful shade of green.



    Using dry Hydrangeas to decorate for fall at One More Time Events.com


    I absolutey love hydrangeas and this year I have used them a lot  in my Fall decorations, mainly because I haven't gone out to the garage to bring in my other Fall decorations and wanting to use other Fall like colors instead of your more traditional Fall colors.  


    Deciding what colors to use for Fall

     It started out by  putting my Summer decorations away.   I was putting  away my faux white hydrangeas because I was wanting to reuse them for Fall.   I was wanting to bring in the browns and oranges  of Fall , so I decided to do an old tea dying technique that has been around for ages using some tea bags along with another technique using coffee. 

    Bring the outside in

    I have a couple of hydrangea plants out back and  once they started to die out they turned to beautiful shades of browns and greens.   I couldn't resist bringing them inside and  and use them in  a few arrangements in the family room and mantel.



    Fall Hydrangea Vignette at One More Time Events.com

     There is just something about vintage.  In this case my vintage window repurposed coffee table and hydrangeas seem to pair up beautifully...Don't you think?

    Turning your Hydranges into a Beautiful Fall Vignette setting

    In this  Fall Vignette,  I wanted  to create  a little rustic Fall charm to my vintage window coffee table,  by placing a white pedestal bowl on top of a piece of sliced wood and  filling the bowl with a large  green candle to mimic the greens in the hydrangeas.  I love using old books, not only does it  add character  they make great pedestals to display on and adding  height when needed.

    Decorating for Fall on Mantel and Coffee Table at One More Time Events.com

    As for the mantle  in my opinion, a perfect way to add warmth was to just add a few of the Fall colored hydrangeas to the  arrangements to  what was already there 

    Fall Matel decorated with hydrangeas at One More Time Events.com


     I love how an inexpensive element can easily be used for balance and extends my Fall decorations.


    Mixing Rustic with natural elements for a Fall Arrangement at One More Time Events.com

    It doesn't have to be expensive to decorate or create a Fall vignette, it's really on how you put it together.  The candle sticks (repainted), books and bowl  were found at a thrift store, wood charger was cut from a trunk, hydrangea's came from the yard and the green apple was just added (apples remind me of Fall)  from the refrigerator to balance out the  vignette. 

    I had so much fun picking and choosing items from around the house and yard to put this vignette together.  What I loved most about it...is it really didn't cost me a thing to do it since I used things I already had what nature gave me.  Do you like to use Naturals to decorate for Fall?
