Inspired by yesterday's post on our strawberry picking adventure, we've put together The Strawberry Guide. Here's our round up of some of our favorite strawberry items. Let's start with everybody's favorite, dessert!

Lemon strawberry layer cake from The Kitchy Kitchen.

Mini baked donuts from The House That Lars Built.

Strawberry orange popsicles from DesignLoveFest.

Brighten up your day or liven up your party with some strawberry decor.

Tutti frutti pinatas from Kitiya Palaskas.

Fun for the little loves:

Fruit rattles from BlaBla Kids via One Kings Lane.

Red strawberry bib from Zigozago via Barneys.

Piñata basket DIY from Sis of Twink + Sis.

And after a long, strawberry-filled day, there may be nothing better than to unwind with a fruity cocktail.

Happy strawberry season! 

GET INSPIRED FOR VALENTINE'S DAY

Nothing like the vision of pink and red hearts to get me inspired on some Valentine decor and crafts.  Now that I'm a mom, Valentine's Day is even more fun because I get to share it with my sweet girl.  And there are genius, GENIUS, people out there coming up with the most incredible DIYs for you and your brood.

The House That Lars Built always has incredible Valentine ideas.  Loving this Polish pajaki chandelier.

Donut and heart piñatas, what?!  Still enamored with mini piñatas, especially these from Little Inspiration.

Speaking of donuts, California Donuts has Valentine letter donuts that spell out things like, “I LOVE YOU,” “WILL YOU BE MINE” and “HAPPY VDAY.”  Cute, right?  

Here's what Studio DIY did with her California Donuts: "Oh Snap!"

Sugar & Cloth really has a way with arrows. Love how she made these macaroons Valentine-worthy.
