One of my favorite things to do on weekends is to explore unique, local stores in Portland. I love to browse through these shops, gather design inspiration, and support local businesses. Many of these stores support other local artisans and makers and focus on sustainable and quality made products. You can be assured that anything you buy from these stores will be unique and one of a kind! If you are visiting Portland soon, this is a great list to refer to for some great shopping spots.

These floral wall hangings were another DIY I made for my sister’s graduation party. This is a very inexpensive, and easy DIY for party decorations that can really add a wow factor to your party. We are going to hang these over a sheeted board as a fun backdrop for a photo booth! I am definitely saving these for future bridal showers, baby showers, and parties.

Mississippi Avenue is a vibrant North Portland neighborhood with tons of cute shops and fun restaurants. Just a few years ago, the area had a bad rap, but many of the shop owners saw potential in the historic storefronts. With help from the Rebuilding Center on Mississippi, many of the storefronts were renovated with secondhand materials from old Portland buildings. In a short amount of time, Mississippi has quickly become a thriving Portland destination with a ton of foot traffic!

My little sister who is graduating in a few weeks, asked me to DIY some decorations for her party. She loved these hanging flower poms. She loves pretty flowers and girly colors so I bought some brightly colored artificial flowers from Walmart for these poms. What’s great about this DIY is that once you have made them, you can store them to use for other events! They’re the perfect decoration for a baby shower, bridal shower, or a girl’s birthday party.

Portland’s Best Coffee Shops II

By on May 19, 2017

Located in the lobby of the Society Hotel, this coffee spot is a total gem! The Society Cafe is also a lounge and bar that servesΒ coffee, fresh pastries, beer from local breweries, and some of the best wine in the Chehalem Valley. I really love their chai latte; it’s not too spicy and not too sweet. It’s just perfect! The lounge is very roomy with sofasΒ and window seating. I love the blue/grey cabinetry, marble counters and tables, and the wooden accents.
