At Cedar Hill Farmhouse last week I shared how I make beautiful ribbon bows. I've put together a simple 4 minute video to show you how super easy these are.

Hello lovely people! I'm Mary Beth from Cupcakes and Crinoline and I am so honored and happy to be Guest Hosting today here at The Scoop!

Blog Header 8 2013
I'm a wife and mom to three boys who loves to create. My blog is where I share my love of all things home ~ cooking, baking, crafting, small DIY projects and some kid stuff thrown in. In the last two weeks I've done a whirlwind of Christmas related posts and I would be so happy if you have the chance to stop by and say Hi!
My task as a guest host is to pick a few of my favorite projects ~ I found it almost impossible. Every single link was wonderful and amazing in its own way but after going back and forth (and back and forth again and again) I weaned down my picks to the five below.

My First Pick is this bounty of natural decor from Mary at Home is Where the Boat Is. If you're looking for some last minute inspiration to decorate the outdoors be sure to take a look at Mary's Potting Shed Christmas Nesting & Feathering post. We're getting a break in the weather this weekend and I'm going to be borrowing some ideas for finishing up my outdoor decorating.


Chateau Chic shares her lovely kitchen filled with holiday cheer including vintage ornaments {which I adore} and the perfect touches for any Chic Vintage Home. The mini ornament garland and the vintage hanging scale made me swoon!


Penny from Penny's Vintage Home shares an entire festival of trees ~ if you love shabby chic and lots of pink like I do you will love her tree tour ~ fabulous!


I don't have a fireplace or a mantel but someday when I do {I dream big!} I would love to decorate it as tastefully as Debra from Common Ground has decorated hers for the Holidays.

My final pick is the Christmas Decor in the Great Room shared by Shirley from Hospitality Designs. The entire room is amazingly decorated but this cotton wreath and stained glass window really caught my eye. There's also a HUGE tree that is decorated beautifully with a basket of gifts beneath it ~ if I can find a basket the same size I think I have another idea to finish off my decorating.

I am so thankful to the Ladies of The Scoop for allowing me to guest host this week ~ I had so much fun going through all of the lovely links shared and choosing my favorites~ I felt like a kid in a candy store.

Thanks so much, Mary Beth! We are so happy that you joined us today!
