Gems Of The Week: 9 Recipes & DIYs To Inspire Your Fabulous Weekend!

/ Friday, June 21, 2013

We made it to Friday, friends—phewf! What a week—am I right? But I'll tell you something, there were some killer recipes and DIY projects floating around the web the past few days and I'd love to share my favorites. Start with this insanely cute Popsicle Photo Backdrop by Melanie Blodgett of You Are My Fave for Julep. I can only image the photos taken in front of it, probably so fresh and fun!

Obsessing over this DIY Metallic Piñata Makeover by Studio DIY!
This Cherry Gin & Tonic by Jenny of Spoon Fork Bacon (love!) looks super refreshing!
I can't get over how adorable these Banana Split Eclairs are from Bakers Royale!
Wish we had the space in our apartment for me to try this DIY Neon Striped Tablecloth project by my fave, Oh Happy Day!

How have I never made linzer cookies with lemon curd before? Definitely need to try these Lemon Poppy Seed Linzer Cookies by Diva Eats World! Don't they look so tangy and delicate? 

Such an easy way to dress up a plain straw for a special occasion, don't you think? Brilliant work by Style Me Pretty, as usual. 

Sriracha-Spiked Mexican-Style Street Corn by the lovely Camille Styles! I think I could eat that whole tray...

Ooh! And finally (also from Studio DIY) these incredible Edible Pinwheel Cupcakes for July 4th—pure genius!

What's on your agenda this weekend, friends? Fun plans? Dinner parties? I'd love to know!
