DIY Gold Dipped Glassware

by Erica in D.I.Y.
I haven’t stopped thinking about Front‘s gold dipped glassware set ever since it circulated through the blogosphere last holiday season. So after recently spotting a tutorial on how to DIY gold dipped stemware, I was inspired to create my own version of these luxurious golden vessels. And of course, just in time for that New Year’s Eve party I’ll be hosting this year!

DIY Satsuma Candle

by Erica in D.I.Y.
A friend of mine DIYed her own candles, made from the peels of Satsuma oranges, for a recent dinner party. I was so excited by this simple yet clever idea, I had to share the tutorial on HonestlyWTF. My only regret is not discovering this sooner when Satsumas were at their absolute peak in December. Hopefully, you’ll still be able to snatch up a few at your local grocery store or farmer’s market and impress your guests at your next dinner party!

When graphic designer and artist Joanna Bean Martin shared with us her technique for marbling the bottoms of glassware with nail polish, we couldn’t wait to try it ourselves. Who knew it would be such an easy way to add color and pattern to your next tablescape or party? Remember, the brighter and bolder colors you use, the more the glasses will radiate and glow. Have fun!
