Entertaining tip: prepare small bowls and avoid having your guests lean over each other to get their snack, avoid double dipping and create portion control!

Friday DIY: home organization

Happy Friday everyone!

Today I am sharing some of my favourite DIY home organization projects. When it’s this cold out, craft time and a hot chocolate sounds like the perfect Sunday

What I love about these projects is that most of them can be done with items you already have at home!

Using an old frame or window shutter to hang jewellery is an awesome idea! I love the look of having everything displayed so it can easily be found yet be organized and look nice.

Does anyone else have a scarf obsession? I have SO many and this DIY project is perfect to keep them all in one spot. Using shower curtain hooks and zip ties- this super functional piece is easy to make and fits right in the closet!

Everyone needs a good grill! This Hamilton Beach grill has interchangeable plates and is great for grilling indoors.

mugs

These textured mugs from West Elm come in all my favourite colors! Perfect for my morning coffee 🙂

Stemless wine glasses were one of my Christmas presents and I love using them for entertaining.

I have a slight obsession with napkins.. I don’t know why, there’s just something about having fun printed and themed napkins for different occassions. A simple way to dress up the table.

Stay tuned for some yummy dinner recipes and DIY home organization tips coming this weekend!

wishing you all a wonderful day!

gourmet sandwiches

Good morning!

Last week I posted about some of my favourite soup recipes, one of my favourite pairings for soup is a yummy sandwich (a great with salad too of course).

Last night we had gourmet sandwiches and soup for dinner- it was delicious and simple!

The Gourmet Grilled Cheese: this is a go-to in our home. use your favourite bread, fill with mozzarella, avocado and bacon then grill on a george foreman or cook as you would a grilled cheese.

Turkey, Apple & Brie: this is a delicious sandwich which tastes gourmet yet is so easy to make. It’s great for days when you have turkey leftovers. Slice your favourite bread, spread whichever dressing you like (we like honey dijon mustard), add turkey, brie and thinly sliced apples. YUM!
