{Loved & Noted} DIY Outdoor Candle Stakes, Embossed Napkins, & Colorful Bamboo Plates


Eating outdoors is seriously one of summer’s best pleasures, so naturally entertaining outdoors is alway a great idea! Especially with fun DIY elements! How pretty are those outdoor candle stakes by A Subtle Revelry. I never wanted an embosser more than after seeing those DIY embossed napkins. Fun designs and colors can be painted on bamboo plates to match any theme with The Flair Exchange’s tutorial.

The {Loved & Noted} series touches on inspiration from creatives and fellow bloggers all over the world.

{Feature} Always Crafty Workshop By Shannanigans

Shannon of Shannanigans had recently contacted me about sponsoring the Always Crafty In Philadelphia workshop. She thought the Daydream In Color Shop’s ombre wooden clips were perfect for their chicken wire frame tutorial. I excitedly agreed and couldn’t resist sharing all the lovely projects that have come from their get together.

{Make And Munch} Frilly Toothpicks & A Biscuit Sandwich

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching so I thought I’d share one of my favorite indulgences. Breakfast in bed! There’s nothing quite like staying in those warm sheets especially with all the cold weather lately. This would be such a treat for your sweetie on Valentine’s Day. You could even do a brunch version of this with friends. Just set out a bunch of blankets and pillows and serve everyone on little trays. I love casual get togethers because everyone’s relaxed and more likely to have fun.

I wanted to debut a blog series today called Make & Munch. A fun craft to make and a delicious recipe to munch on. Pretty much my favorite activities ever. I have a quick tutorial for frilly toothpicks to go with a very simple breakfast sandwich recipe today.



  • Toothpicks
  • Crepe or tissue paper
  • Scissors
  • Adhesive


  1. Cut a strip of crepe or tissue paper.
  2. Fold it in half several times (so you don’t have to make as many cuts).
  3. Cut frills into one side of the paper and leave the other side connected.
  4. Unfold your strip of paper.
  5. Cut a small piece of frilled paper and apply adhesive against the uncut side.
  6. Place your toothpick at the start of the paper and beginning rolling tightly onto the toothpick.
  7. Continue with the rest of your toothpicks to make as many as you need!

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 avocado, soft to the touch
  • 1 tomato
  • 2 biscuits (packaged or homemade)
  • Mayo or your favorite spread (I used prepackaged spinach dip because that’s what I had on hand)
  • Salt, pepper, & any other spices or herbs you have on hand
  • Optional: Cheese (cheddar, pepper jack, brie) or meat (ham, bacon, veggie sausage)


  1. Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk with salt, pepper, and your favorite spices or herbs. I opted for some smoked paprika, but dill or cilantro would’ve been yummy.
  2. Preheat the oven if you are baking premade biscuits. Pop in your biscuits to bake or heat up. Remove when done.
  3. Heat a small frying pan over medium heat. Pour half of the beaten eggs into the pan. Use a spatula to loosen the cooked egg along the edges. Place on a plate once cooked through. Repeat for the second half of the beaten eggs.
  4. Cut up the tomato and avocado into slices. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Cut or pull your biscuit in half.
  6. Spread mayo or your favorite spread (I used prepackaged spinach dip) onto the biscuit.
  7. Layer the egg, avocado, tomato, and cheese/protein, if using, onto the open biscuit and top with the other half.
  8. Stick a frilly toothpick in it to keep it all together for serving.
