Without a regular wine & cheese night it’s possible my sanity would go flying out the window. I mean who couldn’t use a night out with the girls, some wine, a fab cheese board and some crafty DIY projects or card games?

You'll love these fresh fun ideas for making your party pop! Must Have Wine & Cheese Night Party Essentials! Everything from stemless wine glasses and cheese boards, to the perfect wines and wine markers! Plus the new must join monthly wine membership program!

Since I love to host I’ve slowly been filling up my sideboard and bar cart and decorating my conversation space with all the comforts a girl needs. And, to save on time and a trip to the store, I joined a new monthly wine club membership called Winc.

Winc! The amazing new monthly wine club! Winc not only saves me the hassle of guessing which wines I may or may not like by making recommendations based on my profile and how I rate the wines I receive, but I can also swap out any  or all of the wines they've chosen for me with my own picks. Bottles start at just $13 with free shipping when you buy four, and I can pause or cancel my monthly membership at any time.

Bottles start at just $13 with free shipping when you buy four, and I can pause or cancel my monthly membership at any time. (But seriously. Why would I ever want to do that?)

So not only do I feel better about my wine selections from Winc than I do about randomly trying a new mystery wine I picked up at the grocery store, I’m always able to have wine on hand for guests that I can feel good about! With the wine handled the rest is just cake. (If you’d like to sign up for Winc, you’ll get $20 off your first purchase! Simply join here.)

Wine & Cheese Night Party Essentials

If you’re still trying to tackle the purchase of those must have party essentials, then be sure to check out my collection of amazing wine & cheese night party essentials below. And don’t forget to share your wine & cheese night success story as a hostess with the mostest in the comments!

This extra large cheese board from Red Maple Run is perfect for hosting large parties during the holidays, special events or simply a girls only wine & cheese night!

The Cheese Board.

This extra large oak cheese board from Red Maple Run is perfect for hosting large parties during the holidays, special events or simply a girls only wine & cheese night! I also love the gold rimmed agate cheese boards from Wynn + Whiskey.

These hand stamped cheese markers from Vintage Garden Art are a must have wine & cheese night party essential!

Cheese markers are another must have accessory for your wine & cheese night. Knowing which cheese is what means less time reviewing the cheeses and more time enjoying the night! I’m extra fond of these hand stamped cheese markers from Vintage Garden Art. These fun and timeless cheese markers are made from silver plated vintage flatware that has been hand cut, filed, stamped and tumbled.

I also really like the handmade ceramic cheese markers from Wishing Star Pottery as well as the chalkboard inspired black clay cheese markers from Manuel Marino Ceramic.

These hand blown stemless wine glasses from Miss Mac Glass are must haves for your next wine & cheese night!

Pour Another Glass.

These hand blown stemless wine glasses from Miss Mac Glass are must haves for your next wine & cheese night! With a blended design between a highball and a modern stemless wine glass, each of these artisan stemless wine glasses offers a little extra weight in the bottom so it’s comfortable to hold.

Another great option is a set of stainless steel wine glasses. Not only will these wine glass not break like glass can, but this gold colored glasses also offer performance vacuum insulation to keep your drink cool. Pair them with beautiful slip on or magnetic stemless wine glass markers and you won’t have to worry about guests forgetting which glass is theirs!

Bar Cart Beauties.

A bar cart is an easy way to not only add extra storage space, but it also makes it easy to transport everything you need for your wine & cheese night to the same space that the festivities are taking place in. I have this rose gold metal, glass and leather bar cart that I purchased from Target this year.

Industrial Bar Cart! I love this this brilliantly designed industrial bar cart from Fry By Design that offers three storage levels and a hanging wine glass rack. 

But I’m also quite fond of this brilliantly designed industrial bar cart from Fry By Design that offers three storage levels and a hanging wine glass rack.

If you’re looking for a vintage inspired bar cart, then definitely consider the Annie Bar Cart from Inspire Q. This glam bar cart evokes the Art Deco era with its bold finish and a hardware. Plus it has a holder for three bottle of your favorite wine! Alternately, the Silverwood Bar Cart comes in a hammered bronze finish and also offers two tiers of storage as well as dedicated wine holders.

The Wine.

While Winc has me covered in the wine department, if you’re already at the store browsing for cheese selections, I highly recommend Three Thieves Pinot Grigio. It’s light and refreshing and at just $10 a bottle the price is right. If you prefer a sweeter white wine, Schmitt Sohne Riesling is also good and equally budget worthy.

My friend, Bambi, recommends the Matua Sauvignon Blanc if you prefer a drier white or for reds the Alamos Malbec and the Bogle Cabernet Sauvignon. While my friend, Hillary, is currently digging the Fitch Pinot Noir, Villa Appalachia Corvina Reserve 2010 (out of Floyd, VA paired with gorgonzola cheese), Open Kimono Sauvignon Blanc, and the Fincastle Cabernet Franc 2010.

These easy DIY coasters are a great project for a DIY Girls Only Craft Night! Not only will you get in some awesome adult time making your own functional and fabulous custom DIY coasters that your husband will never remember to use!

If you’re looking for an easy and fun DIY to pair with your wine & cheese night, be sure to check out my post for creating DIY coasters for a make and take craft night! Or discover more great DIY ideas on my Pinterest boards.

DIY Party Hat Hack! These mini pineapple party hats were transformed to dreamy unicorn colors with spray paint and glitter!

It’s my birthday! And as a fellow soaper and facebook friend so eloquently put it, it’s my double 21st birthday! Can’t complain about that. I have super awesome friends, I’m doing what I love for a living, I have a shiny new husband and all my needs are met. So this is indeed a wonderful birthday. (It also doesn’t hurt that I can get away looking quite a few years younger.)

So, I don’t normally have a birthday party for myself, but this year I am throwing a birthday party not only for myself, but also for my dear friend, Cathy, who’s birthday is just three short days after mine. We are both turning 42 and know each other from all the way back in junior high school. We’re having a few good friends over for pitcher margaritas and to paint paper mache unicorns. Because, why not?

DIY Party Hat Hack! These mini pineapple party hats were transformed to dreamy unicorn colors with spray paint and glitter!

Last night I took time out to hack these mini pineapple party hats into some super amazing unicorn inspired glitter glam party hats using some Krylon Short Cuts Spray Paint, this glitter set, and a clear acrylic sealer. Aren’t they fun?

I’ve also been playing around with some free printable unicorn stickers I found via Pinterest, painting the borders with ella + milla Elite Drippin’ Gold glitter nail polish. I’m debating grabbing some plastic Solo cups last minute and adding the stickers to those, but they could end up as cupcake toppers as well.

Dr. Harvey's Herbal Multi-Vitamin + Mineral Supplement for Dogs! This powdered whole food multi-vitamin is made in the USA with no synthetic ingredients of any kind. Simply add powder to your dog's food daily to encourage optimal health! My dog LOVES this stuff!

All of that awesome aside, I am also in the midst of a free trial to Thrive Market. Not only did I discover and fall in love with Vigilant Eats Goji Cacao Superfood Cereal, but I also gave Dr. Harvey’s Canine Multi-Vitamins a try for my dog, Jasper. I didn’t realize when I bought it that it’s actually a powder and not a soft chew like I was expecting. But surprisingly Jasper absolutely LOVES this stuff. And as he’s aging – he’ll be 9 in August – I’m more careful about his dietary and health needs.

And, both because Jasper simply loves this stuff and he’s starting to get arthritis in his front knees, I’m going to purchase Dr. Harvey’s Canine Ortho-Flex Vitamins the next time around.

If you’d like to try Thrive Market, you can sign up here.

They then come back and pick up the vessel. Cool, right? And there’s literally no more waste than if you were to go shopping at the grocery store.  (While I also love HelloFresh, recycling and/or throwing out the waste from packaging took up a lot of space in my bins. Plus there is the additional prep.)

If you’re brave enough to embark on making your own custom soap wedding favors for your wedding (or for someone else’s) then my soap wedding favor tutorial will guide you through the process! Within this blog post you’ll learn how to make natural mango & coconut milk soap soap wedding favors with labels!

Included within my soap wedding wedding favors tutorial are two recipes for making natural mango & coconut milk soap. There’s a luxury soap recipe as well as a budget soap recipe. Simply choose the version that works best for your budget.

These heart shaped homemade soaps are perfect as DIY wedding favors or homemade Valentine's day gifts!

However, if you find these recipes a bit intimidating, or if you’ve never made soap before, then you can also give my beginner’s soap recipe a try.

In addition to the soap recipes in my tutorial, I’ve also included step-by-step written instructions on how to create custom labels for your soap wedding favors. My custom label tutorial also includes screenshots of each step along with information for obtaining free software you can use. There are also links to beautiful wedding themed  clipart that’s available to customize your soap wedding favors even further.

If it all still seems a bit challenging, you can also find a label template to work with on Canva. Or you can design and have your labels printed through a 3rd party like StickerYou.  StickerYou offers not only wedding & event templates to create your own labels, but they will also professionally print and mail your pre-cut labels to you.

The Spa Deck – Rediscovering a Treasure of Spa Recipes

The Spa Deck by by Barbara Close (Author) and Susie Cushner (Photographer) is a treasure filled collection of both simple and all natural spa recipes that you can make at home.

The Spa Deck

I moved at the beginning of the year. However, I still had a lease on my old apartment until the end of February so not everything made it’s way over until recently. (We saved the furniture for last.) Anyhow, I rediscovered this deck of spa recipe cards with 50 spa recipes during the move.

The Spa Deck by by Barbara Close (Author) and Susie Cushner (Photographer) is a treasure filled collection of both simple and all natural spa recipes that you can make at home.  It’s no longer in print, however, it is still possible to find used decks online and in bookstores.

Homemade Spa Recipes

Lavender + Tea Tree Blemish Remover Recipe via The Spa Deck

Some of my favorite spa recipes that stood out while shuffling back through the cards included this super useful recipe for making a lavender & tea tree blemish remover. This simple oil acne treatment uses a blend of antibacterial essential oils proven to help fight acne including tea tree, lemon, lavender and rosemary essential oils.

Natural Neroli Complexion Serum Recipe via The Spa Deck

Another favorite, especially for those with dry and/or aging skin, is this recipe for a neroli complexion serum. Neroli essential oil is commonly used to increase circulation and stimulates new cell growth and is suitable for all skin types.

Especially beneficial for dry, irritated or sensitive skin, neroli essential oil regulates oiliness and minimizes enlarged pores. It can also help to clear up acne especially in dry skin. While pricy, a little bit of this amazing essential oil goes a long way!

Homemade Calendula Cuticle Oil Recipe via The Spa Deck

And let’s not forget those cuticles! My cuticles are the worst! And because I have a bad habit of biting my nails when I’m especially stressed, my cuticles tend to rip and tear. This calendula cuticle oil recipe is made with calendula essential oil, but you can also purchase certified organic calendula oil that’s made from infusing organically grown calendula flowers in organic cold pressed olive oil.

The Spa Deck contains 50 spa recipes in all with everything from face masks to papaya body butter. So if you can get your hands on a used deck, I highly recommend it!

Hello Glow, by Stephanie Gerber (author of Hello Glow blog.) This book contains over 150 recipes for creating your own fresh, organic, and effective spa, skin care, hair-maintenance, and cosmetics recipes at home!
