{GIFTS} Thanksgiving Present for a Teacher | On A Budget (with free printable)

I blinked and November had passed before my eyes and suddenly the last day of school before Thanksgiving break was here. In a panic I realized I got nothing for my daughter's teachers, and if I didn't love them so much I wouldn't have given it another thought but we love them and so I frantically scrolled through Pinterest to find nothing I really had the time to make. I mean I would have loved to fill a mason jar with fall-y things but at 8pm the night before this was not happening. I knew I needed cellophane and filler so I ran to the dollar store, as I ran through the store these mason jar candles caught my eye and voila! They were cute, smelled great and cost a $1!!! I ran home designed a personalized label (free printable below), wrapped them pretty and for $4 I had 2 gifts! As much as I would have preferred to get them both a huge yankee candle, it didn't work out that way but my 5 year old was just as happy to gift her teachers these and I'm sure they appreciated the thought!

{BABY SHOWER} Seaside Succulent Baby Shower

We've met Kacee before, she had the Chanel #2 baby shower which is still one of L&B's most popular posts and still circulates pinterest to this day. Kacee is still making magic with hair & makeup but now she also runs the fab blog Life With Lipstick On, which is the perfect dose of beauty, fashion, makeup and all things California fabulous. (When I saw Jenna's shower on Kacee's blog my heart skipped a beat and I'm thrilled she's sharing it with us....)

This picturesque California setting was blanketed in neutral florals, succulents and seaside touches such as driftwood, seersucker and pops of soft blue as guests mingled, sipped on mimosas and
visited the crepe station. Beautifully designed by Kacee and her Mom this shower is nothing short of spectacular.

"We envisioned a seaside feel with fresh white blooms and succulents scattered amongst driftwood.  We topped the table with burlap and layered on a frayed edged runner and a blue and white striped seersucker runner.  The straw chargers where topped with white china and blue and white napkins in mix matched patterns to create some interest.  We sipped custom mimosas and noshed on handmade crepes."- Kacee

If you're in need of a seaside escape, these images captured by Gina Diaz are just the ticket.

The message in a bottle station is the perfect seaside way to leave a message for Momma-to-be and baby.
