3 Looks for a Summer Wedding

It seems not too long ago when I shared three looks to wear to a spring wedding. But that season has come and gone so quickly, and summer is upon us. And it is the biggest season of the year for weddings, so chances are you have a few invites and may be wondering what to wear. It's pretty easy to figure out summer wedding attire if you keep the location in mind.

Of course you have the invite to start with as well. It should say "Black Tie Attire" or "Black Tie Optional" or perhaps something like "Formal Beach Attire," and it will have the ceremony time. Generally indoor evening weddings call for more formal attire than outdoor afternoon weddings.

For an indoor wedding, no matter what time of year, you can never go wrong with a Black Formal Dresses. An elegant knee-length cocktail dress, like this FAIRY COUPLE Women's Off the Shoulder Lace Vintage Wedding Party Cocktail Dress is perfect for a black-tie optional indoor wedding, while a sleeveless o…

3 Affordable DIY Easter Favors



With a quick trip to the dollar store or grocery store, you can whip up adorable and affordable Easter party favors in no time. I made these three Easter favors with just a few items from the dollar store. You could simply fill plastic eggs or treat bags with Eater candy, but these favors are a bit more cute and unique. They're perfect for a children's Easter party. Use them at each place setting, or use them in your children's Easter baskets.


Hummingbird Feeder Filled with Speckled Eggs

This Easter favor costs $2 to make. I love it, because it's something a child can use after the candy is gone. Both the hummingbird feeder and speckled jelly beans were at Dollar Tree. If they aren't available at your local dollar store, you can purchase the same hummingbird feeders here >.


Candy-Filled Flower Pot Favors

Of course you could fill these cute mini flower pots with any Easter candy, but I think the little chocolate carrots are perfect! You can wrap the favor in one of two ways seen below. Fill each pot with the carrots then wrap the candy and pot in a mini goodie bag, or place each bag inside the pots and fill with edible candy grass, top with a few candy carrots, then close with a twist tie or ribbon.


The pots come in a pack of three at Dollar Tree, and the carrots are also available there, as well as the mini clear bags that come in a pack of 40 for $1. Total cost is about $0.50 a favor, so they're perfect if you need a large amount of Easter favors for a class party, Easter egg hunt, or for a church event.


Hatching Chick Favor

How cute is this little chick peep in an egg? I found these little eggs in a three pack at Dollar Tree and immediately envisioned them at a place setting. The flat bottoms make them perfect for displaying upright.


This Easter favor does take a little more effort than the other two, though it's still fairly quick and easy. Take a small amount of the edible candy grass and wrap it around two fingers until it's small enough to fit inside the bottom half of the egg. You want it to fit just below the opening to make it easier to put the lid on. Then place a chick peep on top and snap the lid on.

Dollar Tree doesn't always have the candy grass or Peeps. I got mine at Target for a few dollars. Each of these Hatching chick favors cost about $1.33 a piece.
