STYLE | Spring Confectionery Boards

Saturday, April 6


Look at this gorgeous "Fresh Spring Confectionery Board" you guys!!
Remember the Valentine's Day confectionery board (aka charcuterie-style sweets board) I did?
And remember how easy I said it was? And how I mentioned it was really fun to create?

Well what I didn't tell you is that I love them soooo much...I was already scheming + dreaming of ways to create one for the Spring + Easter season. And this week I finally made it happen!!

I spent one afternoon creating 5 different variations of the same Confectionery Board - using the same sweets - just swapping out the floral details and little add-ins.

It's amazing how different each one of them look with such simple changes.

These boards are perfect for intimate gatherings, family celebrations, baby showers, wedding showers, and there's even one I created to be work environment-friendly.

I even named each of the spring confectionery boards based on the vibe they were giving.

So...sit back...enjoy...and let's get this "sweets board" inspiration party started...

FRESH SPRING • CONFECTIONERY BOARD
Simplicity at its best with the use of greenery and a subtle touch of white florals.

SWEET SPRING • CONFECTIONERY BOARD
A whisper of blush pinks adds simple + sweet charm through the thoughtfully placed florals and treats.



SPRING GARDEN • CONFECTIONERY BOARD
The addition of mini clay pots instantly gives this one a spring garden vibe! 



SPRING FAVORITES • CONFECTIONERY BOARD
Foiled Easter candy favorites makes this board fun for the kids + is office environment-friendly

 PLAYFUL SPRING • CONFECTIONERY BOARD
No foil-wrapped candies here...just pretty colors of spring using pastel grab-and-go candies + treats.

So there you go...
5 different Spring inspired confectionery boards...
all using essentially the same sweets + treats.

They are so easy to put together but really do have a "wow" factor to them.
I'd love to know which one was your favorite?
I'm not sure I can decide on a favorite...
BUT...if you twisted my arm and made me pick one...I'd go with the "Fresh Spring"...and then the "Sweet Spring"...and then... *wink*

I'm so hoping today's post proves to you just how easy they are to assemble and then ultimately inspires you to try one of your own!

Happy Spring everyone!
Love you guys!

I really think this whole "confectionery boards" thing could take off you guys!
I can see these at weddings and all sorts of celebrations.
If we can come up with a way to ship or deliver these...how fun would that business be? *wink*
And if you start seeing these all over the place...remember where you saw them first. *grin*

FREE | Making BIG changes...100 Days Tracker

Friday, April 5


Have some goals you're trying to accomplish?
Well this easy-to-track daily goal checker might just be the thing you are looking for.

• Decide on a daily habit you want to create.
  (ie., 50 pushups/day, 8 glasses of water, read, compliment your spouse, write down something you're
  grateful for on a daily basis...whatever it is you want/need to do.)
• Write it down on this tracker.
• Commit to doing it every day for 100 days in a row.
• Color in a circle every day to celebrate your achievement. (or just "x", "check" or mark the circles)
• Watch your circles fill up as you make your way to your goal.

That's it.

Commit. Keep track. Kick butt.


I created this the other day, inspired by the one Elise Joy created, after more than a month of debilitating pain associated with my piriformis muscle. (I've been sharing on Instagram - you can get caught up over there in my story bubble called PT)

I would have just used the Elise Joy sheet but it kept printing wonky so out of frustration I just created my own.

The physical limitations + excruciating pain has been ongoing since mid-February and needless to say I was feeling pretty defeated.

But then I remembered something Jay says to me all of the time:
"Control the controllables".

I changed my attitude right then and there and decided if I can't exercise and do the physical things I had planned to help me reach my health goals this year...
I can certainly be in charge of what I put in my body...right?

I really just wanted an easy way to track my progress and thought the bubble sheet concept from Elise Joy was brilliant.

If you're feeling inspired to use it to help you with your own goals...

Here's to making big changes my friends...
xoxo,
Jess

Yes...for my new habit...I chose to drink celery juice every morning for 100 days.
Haven't heard about celery juice yet?
I've been sharing all about it and the new juicer I got over on my Instagram Feed.
