When it came to party favours for our guests that attended my baby girls first birthday party I couldn’t find anything that seemed appropriate for a Bohemian themed party so I had to get creative. I like to pretend I have some creativity when it comes to fashion and even decorating but when it comes to actual DIY things I usually am the dreamer not the doer. Thankfully my hubby is pretty handy so usually I just drag him into my projects but for this one I actually….drum roll please…. did it all by myself and I was happy with the end result.


So I ended coming up with a little candy jar and threw some gold dipped feathers on top to give it that Bohemian feel. I wasn’t sure what candy to fill the jar with and I decided to go with chocolate m&m’s since my kids (and I) love m&ms. To give it that personal feel we took it a step little further and we actually personalized her m&m’s which I loved and am so glad we did! Of course I chose the colours of the candies based on our party colours – blush, white and gold!

So I think this DIY will be self explanatory through the pictures but if not here is the step by step text version.

  1. Go to Michaels (or grocery store) and purchase small canning jars with lids.
  2. Take off all the lids and rims and spray paint them using white spray paint – I used Krylon flat white
  3. Let dry and repeat step 2 again until they are completely white
  4. Purchase gold dipped feathers from local craft store 
  5. Sort feathers into piles of three
  6. Using a hot glue gun, glue the feathers in groups of 3 onto the middle of the jar lid
  7. Add your candy of choice
  8. Enjoy and pass them along to all your guests

















And there you have it! I am not sure you will see a bunch more DIY’s happening over here but we are working on some fun projects to be featured on the blog so stay tuned! Have a great weekend everyone!

  • Sometimes being an adult you gotta do scary things like getting a bunch of bloodwork and other tests done in order to get answers that are needed but like I shared earlier this week it’s all about your mindset. Yes I was sweating and shaking with nerves wishing I didn’t have to do it but I also was thankful that I have a dr who cares and wants answers, thankful for that these tests are available to me and especially thankful for a gentle and kind nurse who made it easier for me.
  • Woke up to the most beautiful white snow and was immediately thankful it was snow and not the rain they are calling for - thankful that the kiddies have snow to play in (which makes them so happy) and thankful that we have different seasons to experience. It’s amazing how a grateful heart changes your out look on things. There is a lot I could chose to complain about today but where I put my thoughts is my choice and will definitely effects my  entire day! Look for the positives in your day focus on those and don’t give negative thoughts a place in your heart and mind!
  • Mama, You were given these children, you! No one else. 
You were given these children because you are who they need.
You have the soul to love them even on their hard days.
You have the motivation and love to give these children everything they need.
You have the heart to wake up every morning and do it all over again, 
Even when you are exhausted. You have the smile that they crave and the touch to make everything okay. You are their sunshine and their comfort. You are theirs and they are yours! On the days you are questioning yourself, remember this! You’ve got this!
