Here is the birthday cake I made my hubby this year for his birthday!  Very easy to do and a lot easier than making him a “real” cake.  He’s not into sweets like I am so this was perfect for him.

 

 

I took 3 cake rounds (12″, 10″ & 8″), one 30-pack of beer and then started to stack!  They are not glued down so it was a great centerpiece for his birthday party with our friends and family.  Everyone took a beer when they needed it.  Last, I took some 1″ ribbon and tape it around the beer can to complete the look. You can always add a birthday candle at the top but I just add some streamers/bow ribbon.

The whole beer birthday cake took about 10 minutes and it was a huge hit!






I had the opportunity to review Decorative Ceiling Tiles faux tiles and had so much fun being creative with them.

In the package, I received 2 different types of tile. One was a faux tin ceiling tile that came in an antique copper.  The other tile was a foam tile that can be painted to match your room.

My first thoughts when the package arrived was what am I going to do with just one ceiling tile?  But here is where a person can become creative and a little crafty!  The faux tin ceiling tile I received was a decorative print in antique bronze. It measures 24″x24″ and would make a great backdrop on a mantle or you could even frame it and hang it like a piece of artwork. Here is the style of decorative ceiling tile I received:

The best part is that they are only $10! Of course, it is meant to be used as drop ceiling tile but there are so many creative ways to use this as a photography backdrop or as a piece of artwork on a wall. Take a look at their website to get a few ideas!

And here is how I used my decorative tile! It works perfectly with the deep rich colors in my dining room and used it as a backdrop on the side banquet table with my holiday decorations in the room.

And here’s another one:
