Genius Ideas I Need to Snag! (& One I Already Did!)

Happy Friday! Do you have any big plans? Other than a wedding Saturday night, we hope to simply relax and soak up the backyard. And I'm crossing my fingers to finish up some projects I've been working on, too. Today I thought I'd share with you the projects in Blog Land that have my heart beating faster.

Three Pixie Lane threw the cutest Great Outdoor Party for her son. My son's birthday is next month, but I fear he's outgrown letting me hose down his party with cuteness. I'm lobbying pretty hard, and this party just makes me all that more determined!

Those are s'mores cupcakes!!!

I've been toying with the idea of painting the inside of a lampshade metallic gold, but Haute Khuuture's Gold Leafed Shades blows that out of the water! Gorgeous.

Not to mention her table setting!

Mandi at Vintage Revivals always has great makeovers, but her Mirrored Dresser is one of my favorites yet. Think she gets distracted every time she walks by wearing cute shoes? I would!

I love learning to do the technical stuff for this blog myself, so I'm definitely saving Twenty-Six to Life's tutorial on How to Make a Blog Button.

And lastly, WhipperBerry shared the cutest Father's Day printable! For Free! I'm so amazed by all the bloggers that share their talents and ideas.

Father's Day POP Printable

I've already put this one to good use! I took the Father's Day theme one step further, and tied WhipperBerry's Printable to bottles of Dad's Root Beer (found at World Market).


Your head just popped off with cuteness overload, right?!


Look for these projects to pop up on Hi Sugarplum in the near future! What projects are you snagging inspired by lately? Happy Weekend, loves!

  3. The gold lampshades/table/wallpaper are amazing!!!! All fabulous finds- thanks for sharing and have a fab time at the wedding:)

  4. Love the gold lampshades, incredible. My projects are lacking a little over here!

  5. Oh, I struggle with cuteness. I love seeing it executed correctly -- I feel like whenever I try it ends up being a giant belly flop in the lake of life ;) I did see that party the other day too, and it's DARLING. I tried to convince my son to use that as his theme for next month, but NOPE -- he picked Mario Brothers. Of course. ;)

    Love the shades too, they are gorg. Have fun this weekend!

  6. That printable is darling!!! Love it (: I agree- I'm always like WOW the blog world is super talented!

  7. How do you do it??? I demand to know how you find all this fabulousness and still have time for all your own projects! And yes, my head did in fact just pop off with cuteness overload (c: So snaggin' this one for the father's day soiree...And I think I might work in some of those ideas from the inspiration for your son's party, too...that is just too darn cute! Don't worry, I'm not planning on making dad's day a ten year-old's birthday party (c:

    P.S. You totally made my day with your little note yesterday, so very sweet! See??? There you go again, being all amazing and crap! Stop it! (c:

  8. That outdoor party looks amazing!! Just force your sone to let you, you're the boss!! Ha ha!
    Well, as I mentioned before, I snagged your fancy pants high boy idea and it is almost ready!! Dying with excitement here ;)

  9. Those gold-leaf shades are fab. I gold-leafed a shade recently, but didn't think to do the spary-painting step, so mine turned out pretty patchy and gross-looing... now I can go back and fix it up!

  10. Thanks for the love Cass! Hope you enjoy an awesome weekend dear!

    Peace. Love. LOL!
