Fourth of July DIY

Trying to think of a patriotic party treat to bring to the neighbor’s cookout? Want to get the kids involved in representing the red, white, and blue? These simple yet fun DIY projects are sure to get everyone in the American spirit this Fourth of July!

Patriotic Paper Lanterns

small-paper-lanterns-9

Supplies You will need to make the Paper Lanterns:

-Cardstock in Red, White and Blue

-A ruler

-Scissors

-Star punch or Star Stickers

-A pencil

-Glue Sticks

-Festive Ribbon

-Stapler

Step One: Fold your cardstock in Half Lengthwise.  Then take your ruler and draw lines from the fold, leaving an inch from the end of your line and the edge.  Leave about .75 inch on each side.

Step 2: Have the kids cut on the line, stopping when the line ends, not through to the edge.  (This is great cutting practice)

Step 3:  Unfold your paper and then with the folded bumps on the outside, turn inward and attach at the top and bottom.  Then staple both the top and bottom a couple of times.

Step 4: DECORATE! Add festive stickers, star cutouts, ribbon, etc.

Step 5: Using ribbon or string, hang the lanterns for festive décor either inside your home or outside.

Bring the Beach to Baby

Are you a lover of the beach and ocean? It may be hard to take your new baby to the beach, so have it waiting for them at home with a themed nursery! Whether you want to go bright with beachy or sophisticated with nautical, a nursery theme is a great way to enjoy the space all year round.

For a bright playful look, pair yellow and aqua to bring in the essence of a sunny day on the shore. Mix things up by using multiple patterns that add depth to the color combinations. A few friends from sea life are the perfect way to complete the look.

Maternity Springs Fashion Forward!

Have another baby on the way? Become a Super Mom with style! There’s no need to compromise when you convert a fabulous PoshTots diaper bag into a fashion-forward, yet practical purse. Pantone’s Fashion Color Report for Spring 2013 inspired us to create a few maternity looks based around diaper bags.

Maternity Monaco

We styled a maternity outfit around PoshTots beautiful Petunia Pickle Bottom Waterloo Stop City Carryall. You can look oh-so chic while carrying a diaper bag filled with all your essentials. A simple white dress and accessories are paired with the diaper bag to make its blue hue really pop.

One of the color trends for Spring 2013 is Monaco Blue (Pantone 19-3964), a PoshTots’ favorite!  Another color is Linen (Pantone 12-1008), so we styled both colors together in this savvy fashion color story. Adding a dusk blue scarf (also on trend, Pantone 16-4120) that matches the necklace’s top row of beads will have you sporting three out of the ten trending colors for this spring.

As a mother or mother-to-be, you need time to pamper yourself! Dressing in a pretty outfit can help you do this and makes you feel beautiful. PoshTots offers many mommy necessities that work wonderfully with trendy outfits.

Designer Hervé Léger who worked with Monaco Blue for the spring/summer season says that the color palette looks good on all, but especially compliments any cool skin tone with a pale tint.

Bag: Petunia Pickle Bottom Waterloo Stop City Carryall from PoshTots

Dress: Pippa Dress from Rosie Pope Maternity

Sunglasses: Fendi Technicolor Sunglasses

Necklace: Panacea Blue Drops Three Tier Necklace

Shoes: Tod’s Three Strap Sandal

Maternity Nectarine

Nectarine (Pantone 1-1360) is another one of the colors in the Pantone Fashion Color Report for Spring 2013. We have styled this outfit around our Elizabeth Shoulder Sak diaper bag in Camel to incorporate this great color that looks good on all skin tones. Other fashion trend colors for the spring include brights! According to designer David Meister, brights are the new neutrals so pairing this outfit with a red or other bright lipstick will really make everything pop.

Another great thing about this diaper bag from PoshTots is that it’s so versatile. Even when you no longer have a baby in diapers, you can use it for so many things. The camel color will always be in style and is considered a “classic” in the fashion world. Later it can be used as an overnight bag or a tote for anything!

Bag: Elizabeth Shoulder Sak from PoshTots

Dress: Kimberly Cinched Dress from Rosie Pope Maternity

Scarf: Brunello Cucinelli Fringed Scarf

Necklace: Anne Klein Sorbet Convertible Pendant Necklace

Shoes: Marni Ankle Strap Sandal
