How I decorate small shelves.

How to decorate your small shelves!

So, if you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you will remember The post where I shared a how to, for some hanging long shelves. (You can read that post here) Well, today I’m sharing a post where I kind of show how I decorated a little (bedside table sized) set of standing shelves. How to decorate your small shelves!

The two colors I used are teal-ish and white. Going from left to right, the decor used is:

Top shelf: Spark joy: the magical art of tidying up, stacked on top of a cute journal with a glass jar on top of both of them. An adorable tree jewlery holder that I got from Christmas!

Middle shelf: One of my succulents is in the middle with two cute turquoise crates on the sides!

Bottom shelf: A little light tree and a white tub that I use to store lights in.How to decorate your small shelves!

Raspberry Valentines day cupcakes!

Hey guys! So there are only a few short days until Valentine’s Day! If you haven’t already, go read Monday’s post to help you get decorating! Now onto today’s post. 

Raspberry Valentines day cupcakes!

Yesterday, I made these yummy vanilla-raspberry cupcakes! These cupcakes are made of two parts. A delicious vanilla cake, topped with smooth rich raspberry buttercream frosting! Then you can add sprinkles if you want and of course, eat them!

I frosted these using the large sized open star tip in this AMAZING set I got on amazon, in a Wilton frosting bag. Before getting these frosting tips I just thought I was horrible at frosting cupcakes, until I realized that I was using the small Wilton brand tips that are really made for making designs, not frosting a cupcake. So I bought these tips and instantly fell in love with them! They are so great! You can frost both mini and normal sized cupcakes! Buy this set here.
Raspberry Valentines day cupcakes!Another thing I love about these amazing tips is that you don’t have to use a couplers with these tips. All you do is just pop them into the frosting bag, add the frosting, and trim the tip of the bag off! Then just frost the cupcakes! Down below, you can see all of the items I used in this recipe and where to buy them. Now onto the recipe!

Valentines day clip cards!

Cute little valentines day cards you can clip up around the house!

Hey guys! So how are you doing on Valentine’s? Are you one of the people who has all of the decor and valentines ready a month in advance or do you have no idea what your doing so the decor doesn’t end up getting put up until the day of? Right now our house is being remodeled so we don’t really have our decorations out right now, luckily some of the rooms are done so I have a place to hang up a few things 🙂 .

Cute little valentines day cards you can clip up around the house!

One of the few Valentines things I have hung up is this adorable chicken wire clip board I got at Michaels! I absolutely love it because it can be changed up for every season/holiday, and it’s super simple to do! It took me 5 minutes, start to finish to get this set up and the result is beautiful!
