Mother's Day Fiesta and DIY

Mother’s Day Fiesta and DIY

This styling for a Fiesta had us inspired to host a fiesta for Mother’s Day. Cause we are all about DIY - our Mason Jar Cactus is the perfect centrepiece accessory and project to tackle with Mom.

If you are planning to make something for Mom, perhaps share the experience of a DIY. Join us at Homeworks Etc, May 11th to paint this project with Mom.

Then cook her a Fiesta Feast….. Taco, Quesadilla or a Burrito! All easy to make and so tasty. A margarita might need to be on hand for this special day!

To give the celebration an elegant touch, Paper and Parties styled it with a variety of fresh flowers in bright hues. Also included are our DIY Project with rustic cactus and handmade wooden tray from Homeworks Etc.

Paper & Parties styled this unique party idea with tons of partyware from their shop.. They included Cactus Plates,  Fiesta Fringe Party HornsLove Cake TopperPaper StrawsFiesta Neon Tassel Garland and more!

As favors for the guests, they included some personalized Swarovski wine charms from Plum Polka Dot. A lovely take home with a personal touch.

For balloons they created a custom arrangement with tassels and a large Cactus Balloon and Ring BalloonCustomized Balloons are a fantastic way to dress up an celebration.

I hope this gave you a few ideas to celebrate Mom this Mother’s Day!

DIY Workshops at Homeworks Etc

Homeworks Etc. prides itself on creating a safe and fun environment for women to create. We were built on the belief that everyone has the ability to create something beautiful. Our workshops are for people who love to create, but may not have the time, the know-how, or the confidence to do so on their own.

Don't worry -- we've got you!

When you come to our workshops, we have the materials and instructors ready to teach and help you go home with a brand new creation. You can start and finish a new project within the span of a couple of hours. How amazing is that?

You can come with your friends or just come and make some new ones! We are building a community of like-minded individuals who are creative, inquisitive, and ready to tackle a variety of new projects.

We have a range of workshops including: signs, pillows, growth charts, wine glasses, and much more! We are also constantly coming up with new projects and workshops as we continue to grow and expand.

Meet Amanda, stylist of Lily and Spice Interiors


Meet Amanda, founder and freelance stylist of Lily + Spice Interiors. It's been such a pleasure getting to chat with Amanda and collaborate with her on a few projects. We are giving you her behind the scenes advise, ideas &  inspirations for nurseries, kids rooms or any kids spaces.  Here's what she had to say: Share with us your biggest advise to parents decorating a room. Think long term, I like to try and think of these spaces as an investment so that you aren't switching things out on a regular.

Any nursery must-haves? Oh boy...hmmm! Wellllll, I would have to say that my recent obsession for a great gallery wall would have to be at the top of my list. There are so many great prints, frames and items available these days. We are have one in the works right now and will have it up on the blog hopefully soon. We are waiting on a few custom pieces {which add such a nice touch} so be sure to check back with us to get inspired.

Where do you find your inspiration? This one made me giggle because my brain thinks and sees it all day and night no matter where or what I am supposed to be doing ;)

Here are a few inspiration boards Amanda has created for her clients.  Love the color palette and soft furnishings that she has chosen.  Creates such a great visual and conceptual look and feeling for the new space.  I certainly, as a Mom, would want to spend time in these nurseries.   Check them out!
