Share it One More Time #15

Can you believe it's Saturday again already?  Welcome back to another  Share It One More Time party and features

Seems like yesterday that we were gathering here to share all your awesome projects.  You all have been working hard and it shows .


 
Todays host is Cathy for Vintage, Paint and More who says she had a very difficult time choosing the features this week.  But that's a good thing right? 

Before we get to those marvelous features Cathy picked to feature,  I'd like to share what  we have been up to this week. 
We both participated in the Handmade Christmas Ornament Blog Hop with over 30 other bloggers.  Wow, was there a lot of inspiration there.

Quick and Simple Ideas for a Fall Setting

Quick and Simple Ideas for a Fall Setting

There is something about this time of season leaving me feeling like I am in a huge whirlwind of Fall and Christmas all at the same time...  While Fall is in the family room,  Christmas is in the formal dining room, while the kitchen table is filled with Christmas projects that  need to get done ...whew... so it's like, where do I start and finish???    Do you have these similar scenarios going on in your home?  

 Today I am thrilled  to be back and sharing some quick and simple ideas on how to bring some last minute Fall ideas over at All Things Heart and Home. With just a few simple painted Dollar store pumpkins.

Last month I shared some other Fall Ideas over at All Things Heart and Home if you didn't get a chance to see those you can see them here .

While you are here,  I thought I would share a couple of other ideas on Fall Mantels...Yes I did my mantle twice this year,  not because I didn't like the first one, but with the color changes made in the family room the mantle was redone as well...

Here is the newest one

Here are few ways you can change up any neutral setting

While decorating my home and using neutrals in my basic furniture and wall colors,  it allows me to change it up and not feel like I am not stuck with just one color, it took work within my home.

I can  incorporate colors any time by just adding a few pops to the neutrals to create a whole different look and still  use some of the same items in different ways.   Although most of my changes come from items within my home,  when I want to change things up a bit I simply  just replace/remove or add similar items.

For both mantel settings I used the same brushed silver trays and Mercury candle holders and recreated around those to create two different looks.

Here is the first one I did.


and here is the last one I did...I can see an easy transformation into Christmas done up similar to this by just replacing the pumpkins with some Christmas items...

Game On ... Tailgate Birthday Party

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of SOLO® Brand Products for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.
Game On ... Tailgate Birthday Party
This past weekend we celebrated my Dad's birthday.  When deciding what kind of party to  throw him the first thing that came to mind was a Tailgate party.   My Dad  is a huge Football fan  although he is a Rams fan he doesn't miss any of the other football games,  so a tailgate party  was the perfect way to celebrate his birthday.
 
When planning a tailgate party and to be able to actually enjoy the game, I like to make it as easy and stress free as I can when it comes to the food and snacks.  
Here is one tailgate meal I like to serve that everyone  loves.  This meal is grilled to perfection in their own little pouches,  simply grill and serve  on a sturdy throw away plate.  I like using  SOLO plates mainly for their sturdiness, but I am also loving their new squared  plates, bowls and cups.   
Grilled Mushroom Burgers Veggie Packs
These packets are almost a meal in themselves. 
1package  lean ground beef patties
1 pkg shredded Cheddar cheese (4 ounces)
1tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 medium green onions, chopped (2 tablespoons)
1teaspoon seasoned salt
2 medium potatoes, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups mushrooms
1     fresh green beans 
1    red bell pepper thinly sliced
1     green pepper thinly sliced
1     yellow bell pepper  thinly sliced 

Directions

  • 1Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Spray half of one side of four 18x12-inch sheets of heavy-duty aluminum foil with cooking spray.
  • 2Mix Worcestershire sauce,  green onions and 1 teaspoon seasoned salt. 
  • 3Place potatoes on sprayed sides of foil sheets. Top with beef patty, carrots, tomatoes and sliced onions; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt. Fold foil over patties and vegetables so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again. Allow space on sides for circulation and expansion.
  • 4Cover and grill packets 4 to 6 inches from medium heat 17 to 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Place packets on SOLO plates.  fold back foil and enjoy!
Because SOLO products are more than just cups, SOLO also offers Paper, Heavy Duty and Premium strength products like these squared plates and bowls which I used as a serving tray for spinach dip and bread.
Low stress is the key to any get-together for me...tailgating especially. Using disposable dishes bringing delicious food make it easy to enjoy the fun without fussing over who's going to do the dishes and makes clean up a breeze.
Popcorn is a must at every game...not to mention,  it is my Dad's favorite snack!  Placing them in SOLO cups makes a perfect individual  way to serve  the popcorn.
 
After all the football games were over, a few games of washer were played,  while the  rest of us relaxed and enjoyed each others company by the fire.   This was the perfect day spent with family and friends  celebrating another year with Dad!

Last Minute Quick and Easy Fall Wreath


Last Minute Quick and Easy Fall Wreath

Hi Everyone,    I am  back to share another quick and easy last minute Fall project  with you all .  When I asked Rose from Fine Craft Guild (where I contribute to once a month), what she would like me to contribute  this month she said she would like to see a Fall wreath.

Fall Hydrangea Cork Wreath

With Thanksgiving getting closer, it's still not to late to create this  Fall wreath to welcome your guest or if you are not hosting Thanksgiving this year, how about giving one as a hostess gift?  Seriously, once I gathered my supplies it took me less than 15 minutes to complete this wreath.  For more on how this Fall wreath was created  you can go to Fine Craft Guild for a full tutorial.

Another idea for this wreath:  This wreath could be easily changed  up.   After you are done with it, why not recycle it???  This could make a nice Christmas teacher gift.   The Teacher could actually use it to pin notes on (since the round circles are cork) or maybe pin pictures of their class, by replacing the hydrangeas with another type of flower... I think sunflowers would be nice..  what do you think?

Using Christmas Ornaments to Create a Christmas Table Centerpeice


Using Christmas Ornaments to 
Create a Christmas Table Centerpeice


I haven't gathered up all the pumpkins yet.   While Fall is still hanging around in some places of the house Christmas is starting to happen in others.

When asked to participate in an ornament blog hop and since we will not be hosting Thanksgiving this year,  I couldn't resist taking a couple of the painted  Christmas ornaments to the dining room table and create this  Christmas centerpiece.

Vintage icicles at One More Time Events.com

We actually haven't brought our Christmas decorations in yet, but with a few Christmas items I did pick up the other day and along with a couple of large handmade ornaments,  this is what was created. 

Painted Christmas Ornaments at One MoreTime Events.com
The two large  handmade painted ornaments were done in grey and ivory and nestled in a couple of Christmas silver candle rings

Starting with a silver brushed cupcake stand and a glass cylinder vase filled with a grey/silver candle  decorated with silver spiral vintage icicles serving as the main focal point of this Christmas table centerpiece

Used a couple of cylinder vases filled with ivory candles.   The rims of the glass cylinder vases were decorated with some more vintage silver icicles


Using Ornaments and Mercury Glass for Christmas Centerpiece at One More Time Events.com
Bringing in some mercury glass candle holders it balanced and complements both colors grey/silver and ivory/cream in the centerpiece

On each side of the centerpiece ivory trays are filled with white linen napkins with silver accents and held together with silver snowflake ornaments used as napkin rings.

While the candle and glass vases were decorated with icicles the silver cupcake stand was also decorated along the edges and all around with the icicles.

I love how this centerpiece flows like an icicle waterfall on an oval mirror reflecting all the beauty of a winter wonderland of icicles.
