This girl is BOSS at doing makeup! The plus side of this look is that it's completely done without the use of prosthetics making it totally do-able for those of us who aren't aspiring Hollywood makeup artists.

I need 36 hours in a day and 10 day in a week. Pretty please.

I am going to have to start in preparing for the holidays in January if I want to get everything I'd like to make done before the holidays roll around again next year. And these are on my list!

Click on the picture for this 'How to Make Human-Size Ghosts' tutorial from the DIY Network. There are floating ghosts, rising ghosts and even dancing ghosts. I need more time!!

I want to do this to every window in my house. No, not break them! It's contact paper!

Clean your windows before (and after) for a crystal clear shine. Then apply frosted contact paper in jagged shapes, overlapping, to create the appearance of glass thickness. Brilliant, right?!

I saw these adorable Mummy Twinkie Pops on Pinterest and couldn't wait to share them with you. The tutorial for these can be found over on Confessions of a Cookbook Queen. I love a treat that's relatively easy but makes a big impression. Not to mention delicious!

The next old door I find!! I LOVE this idea! We do not have a party without a photo booth ever since our first photo booth at my son's first birthday party. You can see more examples of my various party photo booths, here.

It always amazes me, given the number of people who claim to hate having their picture taken {me included!}, that everyone seems to really enjoy a fun photo booth. I just ordered a wood floor backdrop from Bubblegum Backdrops and I think it will make a great backdrop for this fortune teller door. Now to find that old door....

31 Days of Halloween 2012 ~ Day 1

It's my very favorite time of year again and you know what that means - My 3rd annual 31 Days of Halloween!

I know I've been missing around Peach Street these days and I am very sorry about that. I've been anxious to get back over here and begin blogging again and this is the perfect excuse to do so. If you're curious what I've been up to, please see my other blog, Southern Revivals - my furniture refurbishing and home decor blog. Hopefully you'll see that I haven't totally abandoned the blogging world, after all!

Let's get the show on the road, shall we?

I want to turn every mirror into a spook show after seeing this project on the Woman's Day website but the effect is permanent and I don't think I could afford the therapy my children might need after seeing a ghost in every mirror in the house for years on end. So, I'll be plundering the junk stores for cheap mirrors because this is an awesome must-do project. Click the picture for the tutorial.

Happy 31 Days of Halloween!

A Sweet Celebration - 1st Birthday Party

Pin It

My niece's first birthday was a sweet celebration indeed. With a candy theme and a baby with those cheeks, how could it not be!


My SIL and I had a blast DIYing this party, from the pom poms hanging from the ceiling to the amazing party hats that she created.


We made custom printables to adorn the delicious desserts that the party's theme was centered around.


And aren't these hats amazing? They were created using scrapbook paper, cardboard cutouts sprayed with Krylon's glitter spray paint and tissue paper.


And of course the birthday girl had her very own blinged out version!


She rocked it, no?


You might remember this highchair transformation that I blogged about here, 'A Truly High Chair'. It remains one of my most favorite things I've transformed.


The first time I ever did a photo booth was for my son's first birthday, 'A Carnival 1st Birthday', and I don't think our family could ever have a party without one now.


And by family, I mean the dogs, too.


I hope this has inspired you in some way for your next party. If so, please take a moment and leave me a comment. They are always greatly appreciated!

Happy Monday,
