Hi there!

What a week it was!

It was all about the New Jersey Home and Garden Show this week. Not gonna lie, this was a lot to pull together but we pulled off an amazing booth and I hope you have the opportunity to drop by if you are in New Jersey!

My team and I created a themed booth, Spring in My Backyard, that turned out to be really amazing. We hit some bumps along the road bringing this vision to life, but it came out better than we expected and was truly unique at the show.

And I am exhausted!!!

I’ll be at booth 465 at the New Jersey Home and Garden Show! We are still running a few a few giveaways, signing my book, and creating a gorgeous display of the prettiest spring flowers that you’ve got to see!

Today is the last day though – so if you are in the area please come down and if you already bought a book, bring it with you so I can sign it there for you!

Admission is $10 with kids under 16 free.

While at the show, I was asked ALOT about the poles that are holding up the lights. And I have to tell you they are AMAZING. If you want to string lights in your backyard these are easy-peasy!

They have prongs on one end that go into the ground. The rest are heavy duty poles that piece together with a place on top to actually string the lights. For the show, I cemented these into buckets but you can easily move these around your backyard where you want them.

They are 8 feet hight, come two in a pack, and are worth it if you want to add some ambiance to an outdoor living space. They are easy to use and really strong.
