How to Build the Perfect Cheese Board

 As the holidays are quickly approaching, more and more of us are spending a large amount of our time entertaining! One quick mention of having a friend over for a cup of spiked cider turns into a dozen friends and a punch bowl. And you know what pairs perfectly with friends and cocktails? The perfect cheese board, of course. They are so simple to put together, and you don’t have to worry about your make-up running, or ruining your fabulous outfit standing over the stove preparing some outrageous appetizer. To start, make sure that you have a sturdy serving platter, or even a large plank of rustic wood would do. I think it is important to have variety when it comes to food, and quality is exceptionally important. You have to eat, so why not eat well?! Plan on buying 3-4oz. of cheese per person, and having at least 3 different varieties … Read More

Fourth of July Ideas that DON’T suck.

Sami Davis • DIY inspiration lifestyle

fourth of july

Confession: I have a problem with the Fourth of July. It’s not the holiday itself– because I dearly love the patriotic ambience, bright sparklers, and over-the-top fireworks. Nope, none of that. I have a problem with the decor and projects I see year after year that continue to be sort of cheesy and pretty outdated. It was making my skin crawl, really. It’s hard to escape the mundane banners and American Flag decor, but it is doable! I’ve rounded up the best Fourth of July party picks and DIY’s you NEED to execute this year.. or else. These are the Fourth of July ideas that DON’T suck. I’ll come hunt you down if I see a cheesy decoration. Seriously. Modern 4th of July (from left to right) AMERICAN FLAG GARLAND // Say adios to that old pennant banner and lanterns and other funky hanging stuff. The House That Lars built created … Read More

Party Favors? We’ve Got You Covered!

Sami Davis • lifestyle

Hi loves! Sami from The Unexpected Type here today to talk about one of the biggest, most difficult decisions you make when throwing a party or wedding: party favors (duh!). Okay fine, maybe not the most important aspect– I like to think so– but finding or creating the perfect favor is actually a really hard thing to do. With so many possibilities out there to create whatever your brain can think of and so many small businesses who have some cute favors, it can get overwhelming. I’ve got the top 5 favors your guest will really want after the party! 1. Customized Luggage Tags // Destination wedding? These are the perfect favors! Keep them clean with a lovely beige, camel, or pink color and engrave the dates on them. 2. Macaroon Pops // Macaroons make amazing favors since they’re extremely pretty, yet small and portable. I found these cute DIY macaroon pop covers … Read More
