I am planning my daughters 2nd birthday party, and its all desert themed, which naturally means making a piñata-esk salsa bowl- DUH! Read more on how to make them!
1. Layer your color palette on top of one another. I chose four sheets, but if you want it to be thicker add more.
2. Cut your tissue paper to fit to your bowl.
3. Make fringe on either side of the paper being sure not to cut to the middle.
4. Staple the tissue paper together down the middle
5. Ruffle the tissue paper with your fingers so you can no longer see the staples.
6. Tape the garland alongside your bowl.
7. Fill with chips, dips, limes, and more!
Use your own color palette for your upcoming party and be sure to tag me @theshiftcreative in all your fun creations!

When Amy approached me to execute her vision for her very first makeup workshop I couldn’t be more excited! We previously had worked together, and bonded over our love of desserts and relationship to Jesus. Over the course of a couple months we planned the workshop to be more than an event, but rather an experience where the girls that attended would truly feel welcomed, as well as gaining valuable skills. Check out all the photos by Logan Cole, and more on all the vendors who really made this day WOW!
One aspect that we thought was important was to have a full dining experience, complete with mid century table top additions from Hostess Haven, and gorgeous blooms from Bloomwell! Those faux Sputnik chandeliers I created myself to complete the modern look, and I love the way they really enhanced the tablescape!
This house in Palm Springs was so fun and quirky, and filled with a lot of bright colors! All of the signage by Twinkle and Toast fit in perfectly!
Lounge envy all day thanks to Folklore Rentals!
Lift Coffee Roasters was there brewing speciality coffee and tea for the attendees! It was such a special touch!
Kayla Adams did all the custom design work from the canvas bags to the stationary! So good as always!
I loved being apart of this event! Amy knocked it out of the park, and I literally felt like I had the best team to work with that day!

If you missed it on Glitter Guide this month, this “You Still Got It Mamma” event was a labor of love, but well worth it! Beijos Events and myself thought it appropriate to give back to mammas that we work alongside with in this creative industry for a time to let our hair down, and connect with one another! Wayfare HQ, located in Costa Mesa, generously provided their fabulous space for us to create something magical for the mamma’s! They were the perfect spot for hosting this event, but they also do much more than that so check them out for upcoming workshops, co-working spaces, or if you want to throw your own party! It truly was a time to encourage and love one another, as well as to serve as a creative catalyst for future events to come! All photos were captured by Megan Welker, however a very long list of vendors made this party AMAZING! Keep reading to get all the deets and rad people behind it!
Those cookies? I mean… Sweet and Saucy did it again!
Lavenders Flowers went above and beyond to create this living garland for us, and we absolutely loved it!
Have you noticed all the great “you still got it mamma” prints and fun sayings? My girl Kayla Adams really outdid herself in making special tags for all the swag bag goods, invites, paper backdrop, and many more special details!
HUGE thank you to this team! We could NOT have done it without you and I mean that! Thank you for your individual talents. I am a firm believer that it takes all parts of a body to work together, not just one part! xo

Easter is right around the corner, and I have some pretty adorable basket ideas that appeal to the modern family. Plus, there is a basket for adults too! Because let’s be real, we all wish it was socially acceptable to still get in on the Easter basket action, and now we have an excuse! You. Are. Welcome. xox
The first basket is an art basket for the innovative, imaginative, and young artist of the family! Purchase a canvas, watercolors, paint brushes, colored pencils, stickers, and more to make this basket one that will never vanish like chocolate eggs do (although we still love us some filled cadbury eggs), but rather be a catalyst for creativity!
The second basket is one for friends and families to enjoy! It’s filled with yummy things to create your own cheese and fruit board! To make it more age appropriate I used a metal bin from World Market, and filled it with a french baguette, fig jam, olive oil with sun dried tomatoes and garlic, Mast Brothers chocolate, ginger beer, Brie cheese, and a Lift Coffee Roasters cold brew coffee. Seriously, just thinking about all this goodness makes me want to be outside on a warm summer evening pretending I am in Paris (I am going in May eeeeekk!!) while enjoying my cold brew, and enjoying the richness of the Brie cheese. This is a basket that is not just limited for Easter, but would make a great gift all year long!
If you’re not hungry now- I don’t know what will do it!
Hope you all have a happy Easter & can reflect on the meaning on the day! HE IS RISEN! What a glorious day!

We love these DIY hanging woven planters merely because we love any excuse to add greenery to our space! In neutral hues with pops of metallic gold, these baskets give a woven look without having to spending hours actually weaving them!
Rope (cotton rope)
1. After measuring out the amount of rope needed to cover your pot, begin wrapping your rope with raffia; adhering with hot glue under you’ve reached the end (the same method goes for wrapping the gold ribbon).
2. To add fringe to portions of your hanging: 1. cut desired length of yarn, 2. fold in half, 3. place the loop on top of the rope, 3. pull the legs of the yarn under the rope and through the loop at the top. 4. repeat as many times as needed for desired amounts of fringe.
3. Once you have completed the necessary wrapping and added desired fringe, begin wrapping the rope around the base of the pot in a secure fashion and adhering with glue as you go.
4. After you have finished wrapping, take your yarn needle and desired length of yarn for hanging and go under the top piece of rope. Repeat at the other side. Join the loose ends at the top and make a knot.
5. Add plant & hang with hook!
Aren’t these SO fun! We made them for a special baby shower and they looked so rad filled with lush greenery. You could wrap the rope with colored yarn or ribbon to add some color, or use wildflowers for a different look! Be sure to tag me @theshiftcreative so I can see your creations!
