Kim & Kris on The Nate Berkus Show: Airs October 27th

Monday, October 25th, 2010

Hello friends!  We’re bringing you something a little different this week!  Depending on when you see this post, you may have already seen The Nate Berkus Show on Wednesday, October 27th, or may soon be watching it.  Either way, we wanted to welcome you to The DIY Dish this week and share with you a very “mini” episode of The DIY Dish.  (We won’t tell you what we are actually going to do ON The Nate Berkus Show because…well…we want it to be a surprise!)

Click on the video below to find a how-to project you can make for your home in less than 30 seconds! That’s right! We’ll also share some photos from our recent trip to New York City.

We did a phone interview today with KSL’s Studio 5 program. This interview was before the show aired, so we got to talk a bit about what was coming up. Here’s a clip!

We’d love to hear from you! Leave us a comment below and let us know where you are from! Also, after watching on the 27th, did you find an idea that you’d like to try? Let us know below!

A “2nd Helping” – Sharing More from Episode 6 and Tissue Pom Poms

Friday, October 22nd, 2010

First off, thank you for all your well-wishes as we shared with you our exciting Nate Berkus show news! We have THE best supporters out there and we can’t thank you enough! It was fun to hear all of the different places around the world you’ll be watching! And Wednesday will be here before you know it! Eek!

Also glad to hear that you’re thinking of even more possibilities to make with the tissue pom pom garland! We’re hearing baby shower ideas, Christmas parties, and even Karen commented how cute they would be for a baby’s 1st birthday!

In today’s blog post, I thought I would share a few photos from a bridal shower that my family had given to our niece this past summer. My sweet little niece couldn’t POSSIBLY be old enough to be getting married!  I mean…she’s still only 10 years old, right? :) Yep, I’m getting old.  ha, ha. Isn’t she a cutie?

Taking the same tissue pom pom idea, I attached each of them to skewers and placed in pots for the serving table. I simply stuck the ends of the skewers into styrofoam and covered with a little bit of paper moss. There was a potted “flower” for each letter of her new last name!

Tie a little green ribbon around the “stem” and there you have it!
Another fun way to use the tissue pom poms!

What else have you done or WANT to do with tissue pom poms?
We’d love to hear!
