This morning, I was back at Good Day Austin sharing some simple entertaining ideas that can be used anytime of year for any holiday or occasion! In case you missed this morning’s segment, click the video below and then scroll down for more information about each project featured.  Happy entertaining!

WHAT I WORE:  Dress: J. Crew Factory, old [similar at Nordstrom] //  Necklace: Ily Couture [on sale!]

Earrings: Gorjana  //  Bracelets: Stella & Dot,  J. Crew  //  Watch:  Michael Kors
PROJECTS:
Pom-Pom Drink Stirrer  //  This couldn’t be easier.  Hot-glue a glittery pom-pom to a drink stirrer.  That’s it! You can also check out last week’s full post here!Painted Water Bottle  //  Instead of a boring pitcher of water, make your guests feel like their dining out with this re-purposed wine bottle.  To remove the label, soak the bottle in hot + soapy water for about 20 minutes.  The label should easily scrape off, and you’ll have a clean surface to paint on.  For a permanent result, use oil-based glass paint.  If you’d like to re-use your bottle for various beverages, you can use water-based or acrylic paint.  These paints will easily wash off, and you can paint whatever you’re drinking at the moment on the bottle–water, wine, red, white, etc…

Lemon Place Card Holders  //  The credit for this DIY goes straight to friend and fellow lifestyle + entertaining blogger, Keri Walling, as she made these for a recent dinner party I attended.  Simply take a fresh lemon and make a 1.5″-2″ slit on top.  I used a heavy weight paper and cut it down to 2″ x 3″, wrote each guest’s name, and placed it in the lemon.  For more of Keri’s entertaining ideas, check out here darling blog, It’s Showtime!
