DIY Floral Arrangement

DIY Floral Arrangement

Greetings. We are deep into the 1st month of 2022 and it’s been a hectic one for me. I have been wanting to try my hand at floral arrangements for a while and I’m so happy I did. I have had the compote for about a month now and was a bit decisive on whether I wanted to try live or faux flowers. I guess you can tell I used faux, but I love the way it turned out.

It was a little difficult to start off with because I thought I had chicken wire but realized after a quick google it was not…I’m not sure what kind of wire I found in our shed. So I ended up making a grid with gorilla glue tape. Next take I will use either actual chicken wire or florist foam block and I will be sure to do a step-by-step tutorial. Meanwhile for now I will link the compote and other items I used. I ended up spending right under $90 for this arrangement including the compote and flowers. I hope this post inspires you to try whatever you have on your list to try. It feels amazing when you finish it. Be Well-Omniley

Mardi Gras Decor & All

Mardi Gras Decor & All

Greetings. I hope this post finds you well. A good friend once told me” a second on the lips and a lifetime on the hips”.  I definitely find this true for traditional king cake for myself! I usually make a keto version, but this year has already been in full swing for me. I love that my local Oak Point offers all its flavors in a petite version and they bake them in-house daily. I’m not sure if the ship yet, but I have listed below some local bakeries that definitely ship.

If you love Mardi Gras, I heard it’s on for 2022 in New Orleans! So enjoy and be safe my friends. Omniley

Pantry Organization

Pantry Organization

I must admit my pantries were looking quite a mess at the end of this year. This was a priority on my list and I finally tackled the project again. For those of you who are new here, I have two pantries one I use in the traditional way and the other one I use to mainly store all of my serving ware and tabletop decor. Things tend to get crowded and both pantries were long overdue for a purge.

I started by taking everything out of the pantry and placing it in groups on my table. I then began going through everything checking expiration dates. This is the easy step I think…I can’t believe how many expired items I had in my pantry-shameful.

Once you have purged, check what you don’t need or never used and see if it can be donated in a sustainable matter. I then looked at my groups and at my space and calculated how many bins and containers I would need. I ended up going with Home Edits’ large bin they are  10 x 10 x 6 and fit perfectly on our shelves. I initially had white woven containers and got so many complaints from my husband and son so I switched it out for the clear ones. Once I switched to the clear ones I didn’t bother labeling of course.

I think it’s very important to be practical about your family pantry use behavior otherwise they will wreck your project. I’ve opted to put the highly used items on a Lazy Susan it’s readily accessible and makes life easier for everyone.

I would say my favorite time-saver I tackled with this project is by far organizing my spices!  This spice rack is very versatile it can be used in a drawer, place on the countertop, or mounted to a wall as I did. 

My family is not too heavy on snacks so our pantry may look different from yours, but you get the idea right? I hope this brings you some inspiration to organize that pantry. Be Well-Omniley
