Best DIY Gift Under $3

One of my favorite things to do is to spend time picking out the perfect gift for someone.  I love finding that little something that the recipient will actually use and enjoy! That being said, I feel like every time I turn around I am buying another gift.  I have started spending more time creating gifts for friends and I have found that they appreciate them so much more and they are so much more fun to give!

One of my absolute favorite gifts to give, especially for a newly engaged friend, is a marbled ring or jewelry dish.  They literally take a couple minutes of your time and they are so fun to make! You can find small white dishes in so many stores and they look beautiful when they are dry.  Check out my video above to see how you can make one of your own!

What is your favorite gift to give?

Room Tour {Nursery}

My little man is 2 years old now (oh my gosh, time flies!) and we are about to move him into a big boy bed.  I am seriously so worried because he is such a great sleeper now and I don’t want to go and mess it all up with all that freedom! If any of you have any tips or tricks for keeping your toddler in bed, please let me know!  Before changing up his room and getting rid of his crib, I really wanted to take some photos so I thought I would share them with ya’ll!

I knew immediately that I wanted to stick with a nautical/coastal theme with his room and I am really happy with how it turned out.  There are still some details that I would like to change, but I think it has been perfect for him these last 2 years!

Most of the items in his room are RH Baby & Child or Homegoods, but his crib was actually given to us by one of my best friends.  Her daughter, and my goddaughter, slept in this crib so it is so special!

Thanks so much and see you next time! xoxo

At Home for Christmas

This post brought to you by At Home. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Mimosas on the Porch.

Anyone who knows me knows that I am OBSESSED with all things Christmas.  My co-workers at my last job knew that starting on October 1st, a constant stream of Mariah Carey’s Merry Christmas album would be on repeat at my desk until after the new year.  Now that I am at home with my kiddos, my love for the holidays has only intensified and my family should consider themselves lucky we don’t have Christmas decorations up all year long 🙂

One of the many joys of buying a new home is picking out all new holiday decorations.  Our last home was an older bungalow and the color scheme consisted of forest greens, maroons and khakis.  When we built our new home, I wanted our main living spaces to be bright and airy.  I was so excited when October came around and I could start shopping for new Christmas decorations.  Imagine my surprise when I stumbled across an actual Christmas wonderland at At Home. Immediately after walking in, I texted my husband and told him that I was never leaving.  I had found my happy place.

At Home for Christmas

At Home is filled with so many amazing Christmas items for every room in your house.  Everything from shiny ornaments to rustic reindeer and plush greenery fill aisle after aisle.  There is even an At Home Tree for Me lot that has over 100 artificial Christmas Trees to choose from.  I can’t wait to go back with the family to pick out a special tree for the kiddo’s playroom!
