Easy Table Centerpiece

This is the first time in my life I’ve ever had a round dining room table and I LOVE my table and chairs so much. One of the most difficult things I’ve come across owning this table is creating cute centerpieces that don’t look “off” on the table. I put together this super easy centerpiece one night and it cost me less than $10 and took all of 2 minutes to create!

I baked some box-mix blueberry muffins for the boys breakfast while they were sleeping and wanted them to wake up to a cute breakfast at the table. Spending time together as a family is so important, and meals are a great way to get rid of screens and just enjoy each other’s company. The boys are usually so happy in the mornings right after they wake up, so having breakfast together is such a wonderful time.

For this display I got ALL of these items in the Target One Spot. I used a cake plate, a cupcake stand, and a wooden sign. The cake plate has lasted me over a year and was only $5! The cupcake stand and sign were $1 each, making this centerpiece $7 plus the $1 bag of muffin mix. Super affordable and they’re items that you can use over and over again for various baking and displays, so purchasing the items was a no brainer for me. I already had these small sheets of burlap (and any kind of burlap placemat would work just fine) but you can get the sheets at Michael’s in a booklet for $5 if you have no burlap at home (gasp! lol).

I arranged 5 pieces of burlap sheets in a circle in the center of my table, then placed the cake plate on the center of the circle. I formed a circle on the cake plate with my muffins, then added the cupcake stand to the center of the cake plate. Finally I topped my cupcake stand with this adorable positive sign. Fun Fact: When I started dating James I thought it was hilarious how much he used the term “Heck Yes” and now our entire immediate family uses it nonstop, so this sign was just too perfect to pass up.

What’s great about this is that instead of dirtying up an dish for a muffin, you can pull out a piece of the burlap, set the muffin on top and enjoy! Then clean up is as easy as dusting the crumbs off the burlap sheet into the trash! I’m all about using as few dishes as possible to save on housework later.

 

That’s literally all I did! I told you it was super easy and it ended up looking SO cute! I really love all the great finds from the Target One Spot and all the different things you can do with them! What’s your favorite One Spot find?

Clark Crib: A Batman Bathroom

While I’m honestly not too much into kitschy character home decor, Cash has always had a thing for Batman, he gets that from James. To give the boys something a little fun and personalization when it comes to their own spaces, I thought allowing a little fun in their bathroom would be a great way to do it. I should note that we do have a separate bathroom downstairs for guests, so this bathroom is completely just for the boys!

While I still need to find a few more odds and ends for the countertops, here’s what we did for an adorable and only slighty kitschy Batman bathroom! So far we have this cute striped toothbrush cup and these funny Little Tikes Joker’s (need to find the Batmobile one obvs haha)

I started with this really cool Black Batman Symbol shower curtain, it’s nice and easy to wash, so with black shower curtain rings, it fit a superhero bathroom perfectly. I also added a black rug by the sink to make it a little more cozy.

Since the bathroom is much smaller, and really isn’t being used that much right now, we didn’t need to add a bunch of frills and space saving items yet. The black hand towels match the room perfectly and were SO cheap for the quality!

 

Above the towel rack I finished off the bathroom decor with a mini-gallery arrangement. A lot of these pieces I just designed on PicMonkey then sent to the Walgreens Photo Lab online and printed out in different sizes. To keep it cohesive I made sure each piece had a black frame, and there’s no more than the width of my hand between each picture.

Pretty basic stuff over here in the boy’s Batman bathroom, but sometimes it’s the simple ideas that kid’s enjoy the most. I’d also rather put my money into spaces that get a ton of use than do-it-up like crazy in their bathroom at this point. What do you think!?
