3 Last-Minute Halloween Costumes Inspired by SNAPCHAT

5 Last-Minute SNAPCHAT Halloween Costumes | The Studio Blog

For the last five or six years, I’ve basically missed Halloween. I’m definitely someone who wants to Go Big or Go Home on this holiday, so when I’ve had too much going on, I’ve just, well, skipped it.

This year I realized that if I don’t find a median between “Go Big” and “Go Home,” I’m never going to get to be a part of the fun dress-up tradition again… and I LOVE Halloween and I hate to miss it! So this year, I am going simple. I’m dressing up… as SnapChat!

Now, this will really only work if I can find a few other people to dress up with me. SnapChat filters change every day, so if someone doesn’t happen to see the one I choose for my costume, it won’t make any sense. But if 3-5 of us come together as different filters, I think it will be hard not to see right away what our costume is!

Below are 3 SnapChat filters that I found were super easy to replicate (even at the last minute!), and if you and your friends want to trick-or-treat together, each of you can use a different disguise below and still go out in “group costume.” Ready? Read more…

How to Set a Fall Harvest Table (for Thanksgiving or for Fun!)

How to Set a Fall Harvest Table (for Thanksgiving or for Fun!)

 

Setting a table for a feast (or even just a large group) calls for some strategy. To keep the mood relaxed and enjoyable, you want to balance a variety of comforting cues with cleanliness and spaciousness—meaning, you want familiar aromas to fill the air and decorations to abound… and you also want to keep the table clear of dirty dishes and make sure each guest has enough elbow room.

Sounds simple enough—until you realize you want to put both a gorgeous centerpiece and your carefully prepared meal in the same spot on the table. Or that you’ve invited twelve, but only have enough china for ten. Then suddenly you find yourself saying something you never thought you’d say before: “The rules for a traditional table setting would come in really handy right about now!”

I’ve got you covered. Back in the day, I had to learn for a job which silverware was used for what—and in so learning, I actually learned the right way to set a table at the same time. As you plan to host holiday meals this year, consider these 5 handy tips for maintaining the energy of your party from appetizers to dessert. Read more…

3 Fall Decoration Ideas for Your Mantle

How to Decorate Your Mantle for Autumn | Adhesive Technologies

I just moved into a new place, and I’d kind-of forgotten after living in the same place and making it my own for more than 6 years how much TLC a new home can require.

Matt has already set about making small repairs and painting, and I’m working on making the place festive for fall! We hit a fair in a nearby town last week and I have been feeling particularly inspired.

Our place has an inactive fireplace with a nice mantle for decorating. Here are 3 super easy projects that each take less than an hour to complete which you can use to make your own mantle a centerpiece in your home for autumn. Read more…

Easiest “Wax” Seals EVER

Posted in Parties and Events

Project time: Varies based on how many you want to make; one seal takes less than 1 minute!
DIY level: Easy-Medium

I actually saw that someone else had done this and posted about it in an Amazon review, and I had to try it for myself. It took a couple tries to figure out the best way to do it, but once I did, I was surprised at how simple these “wax” seals were. All the perks of a fancy wax seal without the flame!

The trick, believe it or not, is simply to press the seal into ink before pressing it into the hot glue. Then, in just a few seconds, it peels away as easily as a sticker! Read more…
