I am teaching workshops at Pinners Conference this fall in both Arizona and Utah. I’m really excited about what I’m teaching this year… sure it’s about holiday home decor, party planning and hostessing, but it’s REALLY more about simplifying and learning how to better appreciate all the wonderfulness in your life!
If you haven’t heard of it, Pinners Conference is like Pinterest & Etsy brought to life. Come be inspired with tons of workshops taught by your favorite bloggers, and shop the huge expo where you’ll find the cutest goods from local businesses. I’ll be teaching classes at both the Arizona and Utah Pinners conferences. Oh and be sure to use the code “SUPERMOM” for 10% OFF your ticket.

We’ve all been there — you’re looking for ideas for a party/project and head to Pinterest to be “inspired.” After hours of pinning you’ve got literally hundreds of ideas and high expectations, but no idea where to actually begin. Some people get worn out trying to achieve that Pinterest perfection, while others just give up. I’m going to be sharing my best secrets for creating Pinterest magic on a scale that is both doable and satisfying.
There are so many good classes at Pinners — cooking classes, photo classes, and hands-on classes where you can make a project to take home! Go check out all the Pinners classes. I’d bet there are a bunch more you won’t want to miss. (Look for mine under “Home Decor”)
Pinners is seriously so much fun, and I haven’t even begun to tell you about the incredible SHOPPING. So many vendors, and almost all are small businesses, boutiques with really cool stuff.
Here’s a little sneak peek into my classes… I’ll be sharing some of my favorite tips and sources for party decor. It’s not just birthdays that deserve a celebration, and one of the easy ways I’m prepared to party at a moments notice is by keeping a stash of easy party decorations.
Stash Shopping tips
- Look for items that fold down small so they’re easy to store in a bin.
- Try to only buy items that are reusable for several holidays (like letterboards)
- Stick to plain white or clear glass serving pieces. Maybe black or red too, but you definitely don’t want decorative prints — they tend to not look as nice once food is on them, and can create styling headaches.
- What color to buy? The most universal colors are of course black and white. Then it’s red, green and yellow (in that order). Wood items and metallics like silver and gold are also a good bet.
