It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! We’ve decked our walls with wreaths and filled our table with cheer, all to bring together these 5 DIY’s to help you host a styled charcuterie party!

A few friends and I decided to get together and share some of our talents in order to pull of this styled look. My number one tip when planning a party, is to never do it all by yourself. It’s always more work then you expect and there’s no sense in getting stressed out because then you really won’t be able to enjoy it like you should.

DIY HOLIDAY WREATH WALL

These wreaths were handmade by my mother-in-law. I fell in love with them one day when I saw them at her house and she graciously let me use them. She created the wreaths from grape vines in her garden and wrapped them around a wooden board with nails that form a circle. Weaving in and out, around and around each of these wreaths were made earlier in the year and left to dry to create the most beautiful hand woven rings.

I got greenery from a local florist and weaved the branches along half of the wreath to create a crescent. I adore the way they turned out and though a little tedious, they have held together so well as the greens have dried and maintained their form.

  • When I started working out around the house more Ezra asked me, “Why are you doing those exercises all the time now?” and I responded by saying, “Because I want to be stronger.” That’s what inspired this photo and my “strong” pose.

For the next couple of months, I have partnered with @planetfitnessca and will be sharing more about what I am doing to take care of myself and bring those home workouts to the gym while I check out their Abbotsford location.

P.S. did you know that a PF Black Card membership allows you to bring a friend for a free workout every time you go in?? Comment below if you want to be
my friend and join me! #seriously

  • Don’t be fooled by our matching outfits and their cute faces, the majority of my photos looked like photo two and three.
  • We’ve been under the weather (mainly the kids 🤒 ) for what seems like forrrreverrrr!! We bundled up anyways and took in some of this ❄️ snow and even though it’s cold AF and our 🐕 puppy might be the biggest wimp of all it was definitely worth it.
  • I like pink drinks and I can not lie. ⠀

I also love my SodaStream! I am so excited to share that I'll be creating more deliciousness with @sodastreamcanada this year as they asked me to join their #streamteam for the second year. Last year I learnt so much about how they are changing the world with bubbles, reducing waste and turning so many pop drinkers into sparkling water lovers. Best part is, you use tap water from your home so whenever you want to make bubbly water (as my kids say) it's so easy! #partner⠀

  • Would it be weird if I said we drove around specifically looking for this door? #thatpinkdoor #butnot
  • #AD Our TV is usually set up in our garage's man cave but during the winter months it makes its way into the living room. We love having cozy family movie nights and enjoying some Orville Redenbacher Extra Buttery popcorn. It's butter-ly delicious! Bonus: it's made with no artificial colours, flavours, or preservatives. What's your favourite family movie right now? @orvillecanada #originalpopcorn #OrvilleCanada Photo: @juliechristinephotography
