Everlasting Garland.

Love this Everlasting Garland idea from The Martha. The project seems really easy to complete and the garland can be reused again and again. They show it on a mantel, but I can think of several other places it would work just as well. I would also totally use these for party decorations as opposed to regular, boring crepe paper streamers.


Martha’s Gift Tags.

The Martha has some great gift tags available through her line at Michael’s. I wish I had the time to devote to wrapping gifts that this woman supposedly does, but twenty to thirty minutes per gift is not feasible!


FLOR Party Dress.

I’m loving this alternative to a traditional tree skirt – the FLOR Party Dress. The leafy cut tiles, available in Chartreuse or Brick, give trees a modern foundation of recycled felt. And I’m pretty sure I could find another use for it throughout the year to justify the purchase. Lovely.


Martha Martha Martha.

It’s entirely too early to start posting about holiday decor, but oh well. The first post was going to happen sooner or later here at Design Crush and what better way to start things off than with Martha Stewart’s holiday collection at Macy’s. It’s the jewel tones that really get me as well as the kugel ornaments. And though the wreath of ornaments in the center is only a display of colors available, what a great idea for a project. That sneaky Martha and her crew just continue to out-do themselves again and again. (Which partially explains my love/hate relationship with the woman!)


Halloween Candy Bars at CHOW.

I’m not knocking the store bought stuff by any means because we’ve gotten through some tough times together, but holy crap do these homemade candy bars from CHOW look so, so good. Not only are these rockstars sharing their recipes for PB Cups, almond jay, TWIXT and Snickles, they’re also giving us a PDF wrapper to download for each one. A fun and well-designed one at that.
