Botanics and Beauty Girls Night In and The Best Infused Water Recipes

Easy flower arrangement using a collection of glassware The week we moved to St. Louis, my friends Amanda and Tori hosted a makeup party where we shared beauty tips and an abundance of laughs. As the years have passed and our schedules have become more hectic, we get together less frequently, but when we do it’s always so much fun! It’s amazing how much we learn from one another. Sometimes, we just need an excuse to get together. Whether you’re inviting friends over for a girls night in, hosting a bridal luncheon or honoring the mothers in your life, a beauty party is a fabulous way to do it! I’m sharing some simple ideas for hosting a girls night in… Water Bar | Set up a fruit infused water bar for a refreshing summer party Offering a signature drink or setting up a bar allows me to relax and enjoy my guests.

Easy centerpiece idea - deconstructed plant

I have absolutely no floral training, but I have a lot of fun with flowers! I’ve been “arranging” flowers for years with deconstructed plants. I did it in my event planning career as a cost saving measure, but have continued to deconstruct plants because it’s an unexpected and beautiful way to create a tablescape. I’m so excited to partner with Boots Botanics – I recently switched my skincare regimen and tried the Microdermabrasion Polish among a few other products. It made my skin feel vibrant and refreshed, inspiring this hibiscus centerpiece. Hibiscus is one of the most powerful anti-aging plants there are, which makes it even more stunning! Plants often offer more blooms than you can get in a single bouquet and they’re all in various stages of blooming. I like to incorporate buds just as much as full blooms. To create this flower centerpiece you’ll need: 1 hibiscus plant a collection of bud vases, champagne glasses and recycled bottles shears The details: Measure each stem to it’s “vase” and cut it at an angle. Remove any leaves that will be below the top of your vase. Also remove any excessive or damaged leaves. For bowls or low glassware like champagne glasses shown, cut just below the thick portion of the stem below the bloom and insert into water. Beautiful girls night in party with an easy DIY centerpiece and recipes Collectively the individual vases fill the table with color and make it feel special, in less than 5 minutes!
