This Week’s Features

We are excited about a new year of sharing, linking, reading, pinning and inspiration. Linda, from A Labour of Life, is our hostess for the month of January, so let’s get started.

It was an interesting week, a lot of self reflection, boggers sharing what they are working on and what their followers loved last year.  It’s tough I want to say, selecting only 4 posts to highlight.  which is why I want to remind everyone, take a moment and search through.  This is a space to get inspired and help each other out, it is more than dropping a link, this is supposed to be about community and connection.

Plaid Tablescape Feature

Keeping to the tried and true my first feature is no surprise, an awesome plaid tablescape. Master Pieces of my Life does not disappoint with this simple yet elegant table setting. It’s a simple concept that can be used to style any table and adapted for any type of celebration. I am absolutely loving this simple plaid holiday table design.

Fun Entertaining Idea

Featuring something a little different but totally up my line is a fun entertaining post. The House on Silverado is sharing a fun party idea, how to host a couples cocktail contest. Covering everything, including some tips on how to host a new and improved addition.

Wedding Zing Ideas

And truly sticking to an entertaining topic/theme this week, how about some fun Wedding Zing Ideas. And what the heck is a wedding zing, well it is adding a unique fun something to the Wedding day, forget photo booths and traditional ice scultpures. Check out what The Wedding Soiree Blog has to say

DIY Photo Booth

Can you even have a post about Entertaining in this day and age without talking about a photobooth? I know I may have said nah for a wedding in my previous feature, but heck at home entertaining this is the best. Loving Decor Craft Designs, DIY New Years Eve photo booth, also perfect for many other celebrations.

Charcuterie Bites

Can you have entertaining without food? I think not. Sharing some fun charcuterie bites from Honey I’m Home DIY. How cute are these (and in today’s world such a smart option for safe food shares)
