DIY Cornhole Set

Another perfect minion project was brought to life for this years #HunkiedorieHarvestParty. I knew that the party really needed some yard games to get things going.

The NA Sangria was such a hit with … Continue reading Non-Alcoholic Sangria

Faux Chalk Board Menu

For me, this years #HunkiedorieHarvestParty was all about the details, like my faux chalkboard menu. Last year I printed out a menu for each place setting which ended up being an issue when the wind decided to blow them all over. Although they were beautiful I wanted to do something a little different this year. I decided to make a faux chalkboard sign, similar to … Continue reading Faux Chalk Board Menu
