How to Make Bruschetta

Don't you just love the taste of homemade bruschetta?  It is such a light snack or appetizer and super simple to make.  


  • 8-10 roma tomatoes
  • 4 fresh garlic cloves
  • balsamic vinegar
  • marinated/seasoned fresh mozzarella
  • sea salt
  • fresh basil
  • 1 medium red onion
First, wash the tomatoes, cut off both sides, slice, then dice.  I use a strainer after I dice them to remove some of the extra seeds then and add to a large bowl.  

Then peel and chop of the onion in small pieces.

Peel and mince the garlic. I use the rubber oxo garlic peeler to take the peels off easier and a mincer. 

Chop up about 5-6 large pieces of basil. 

Take the mozzarella out of the container and cut it into small pieces and add to the bowl.  

Finally, use a few pinches of salt and about a 1/4 of a cup of balsamic (more or less to your liking) and mix everything together.  If you would like you can replace the fresh mozzarella with shaved parmesan cheese.

How to Make a Floral Arrangement

Just like my wreaths, I have made many floral arrangements, but have never sold them or really paid attention to technique.   I kind of just, made them.  When I started my wreath business, I began to really pay attention to the Do's and Don'ts of design and color theory.  My wreath business just celebrated its' three year anniversary of opening this past January and now I have begun selling floral arrangements. There are so many amazing books I have read that have helped me to learn more of the "technical side" of creating floral arrangements.  My first favorite book is  Floret Farm's A Year in Flowers .  I first learned of this farm when I visited the New York Botanical Gardens last year and purchased  Floret Farm's Cut Flower Garden .  I created my first, REAL cut flower garden last year and this book was beyond helpful.  My second favorite book for creating floral arrangements is  Flower Color Theory    Both of these books cover plant types, color combi

Home After The Holidays

Once the glitz and glam of the holiday decor is put away and the tree is taken down, what do you do in your home?  I have seen a mixture of two decor options: a wintery, cozy home or year-round decor.   For me, I choose to do the wintery, cozy home decor style.  Many people associate garland and lights with Christmas but I do not.  I associate Christmas with Santa and ornaments.  Who is to say that you cannot have garland after your Christmas decor is put away.  In the link below I will show you how I styled my winter garland for my fireplace. DIY Winter Garland So many people say they miss the warmth of the lights of their tree.  But why are lights only associated with Christmas.  I have seen so many creative ways to incorporate lights into your winter decor.  Look at how I styled my floor vase this winter. This vase is from ZGallerie, one of my favorite glam decor stores.  The greenery and magnolias are from Hobby Lobby.  Then I added two white branches with battery operated lights f

Different Ways to Preserve and Store a Wreath

 I have been asked so many times, how I store all of my wreaths.  Since I make wreaths and am fortunate to have a work space in my home, I have all of my wreaths either on wreath stands or hanging on the wall using thumbtacks.  Purchasing a high quality wreath can be costly, I know, but it is all worth it, especially if you learn how to store and preserve it.  To start, I always recommend my customers to try to keep their wreath in a protected location outside, avoiding full, direct sun.  If left in the elements, the wreath will not last long as rain and strong winds can be damaging.  The sun also fades the colors in the wreath.  Sometimes, this is unavoidable, but you must be prepared to most likely purchase a new wreath each year. If you are able to keep the wreath somewhat protected outside, then you will most likely be able to use it the following year if not years.  There are many different ways you can store a wreath and also many ways you should avoid storing your wreath.  The b
