Home Decor with Silk Flowers | hip ‘n creative

Disclosure: This product was provided free of charge in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are genuinely my own.

I love decorating my home, I love to find beautiful items that I can incorporate into my decor that compliment my taste and budget.  This can be quite a challenge when it comes to flowers.  It’s fun to use real flowers and plants but I struggle with keeping them a live. If you follow me on instagram you’ll see that I have a beautiful hibiscus plant.  I am very happy that my plant lives but I struggle with maintaining it.  It’s a lot of work!

So when I was contacted by Commercial Silk Int’l., I thought the timing was perfect.  Ever since I worked on my patio decor I have been on a kick to bring the outdoors in with plants and flowers and like I said they don’t last long but silk plants do.    There are many benefits to having silk plants and flowers, one is that you can decorate your home with them all year long!  Another is that there is no need to water them, which is great!  And  you can move them around and create a whole new look and for me that’s a win!

I received my package of artificial boxwood plants in the mail and was very happy with the quality of the plants.  Not only were they packaged nicely, the plants themselves are beautiful.  My oldest daughter thought they were real and actually touched it to see if they were!  Ha fooled her!  These beauties are perfect, they come in these silver pots with a no scratch base so your surfaces will be safe and the boxwood have a frosted look that gives a softness to them.

Until next time guys, I hope you all have a wonderful day and I’ll see you on the next post!

SMALL PATIO MAKEOVER on a BUDGET (Pt. 1 ) | Hip ‘n Creative

I’m super excited to be sharing with you my first of TWO Small Patio Makeover on a Budget series! Over the weekend my wonderful husband and I -with the help of our kids- cleaned and dressed our front patio. Getting it one step closer to being a beautiful oasis! One of the things we initially did was power wash our patio.  What a difference that made!  I didn’t think our patio was too bad but once we power washed it there are a huge difference!  The photos don’t do it justice!

Once we were done with cleaning the patio we then planted some very pretty perennials and some awesome hanging baskets as well as some pretty plants around the patio seating area.  It was a very simple project with minimal work (with the exception of planting the flowers).

The patio furniture we have was bought on sale from Wayfair last year – https://goo.gl/at1bth this is the set we got but we bough it at the end of the season and saved a ton! When we got it we used it in our back patio last year but decided move it to our front patio and get a larger set in the future for the back.  

Price Breakdown:

  • Hanging Baskets: Calibrachoa $29.98 each
  • Patio Garden: Autumn Sage Red 2 for $10.00
  • Flowers in baskets: Blanket Flower 2 for $10.00
  • Patio Furniture: Wayfair (on sale last year for $240) https://goo.gl/at1bth
  • End tables (for plants) $8.00 each Ikea

Here is my youtube video with our process:

I’m happy with the overall look of the patio!   But will be adding some colorful pillows, outdoor rug, lighting and more plants!  Some come back and check out my second part of my patio make over!

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you guys on the next episode!

Dollar Tree Home Decor DIY | Easy Home Decor Projects

I have been wanting to redo my laundry room for some time now.  I think the previous owner didn’t use the room to it’s fullest potential.  The room is a nice size and i cannot wait to revamp it, so when I went to Target recently I knew that some of the Valentine decor would be perfect for my laundry room/ new office. I also made a few Dollar Tree DIY projects that will go perfect with the office decor.  Stay tuned to see the laundry room redo (coming very soon!) but for now I want to show you some DIY room decor I made using products from Target and the Dollar Tree:
