Painted Relish Plate Garden Flowers - Coffee Up with SToK

This time of the year we often find ourselves in the yard, garage and gardens trying to spruce up our outdoor space after the long winter.  While this work is never back-breaking, it is tiring and pretty mundane.  Recently, I have found that both Jeremy and I are allowing our creative juices to flow when it comes to our home projects - usually this means a little extra time and work but always ends up being a job well done in the end.   But...with that work and time on the side of being parents we often find ourselves needing some inspiration in a bottle!

I am so happy that we tried the totally geeked out SToK™ Cold-Brew Iced Coffee. This treat gives a bold outlook to projects and gives our thoughtful moments creative things by providing us an endless stream of inspiration lightning bolts!! BOOM!  Let's be honest, our projects have to be done during our kid free moments so have to be on it!  Caffeinated goodness on a hot summer day!

Our latest project have been our veggie and flower gardens.  About a month ago I shared a fun DIY River Stone Garden Marker idea for our veggie garden and man they make our garden look so bright and colorful!  I love it.  But now, it was time to focus on the flower gardens.  Sure, the flowers add the beauty and color but our front garden needed a little kick of creativity.

11.  Finally, place the pretty glass flowers in the garden.  


I am in love with these pretty glass flowers!!  They turned out great, the best part of this project was that it didn't need perfection.  I am not an artist but I was able to create some beautiful DIY garden art that gives our garden a personal touch of creativity.

You can get a boost of creative juice from SToK™ Cold-Brew Iced Coffee the next time you visit Walmart, check out the refrigerated section next to the milk.  The flavor of this high quality, pure cold-brew coffee is so good.  I am a big creamer user but with this brand I am drinking it black and loving it.  Yummy!

  5. Oh my gosh, these are so cute! I love that you can do whatever colors or flowers on the glass plates. I was just looking at the cold brew at Walmart this weekend, it's good to know it's worth picking up. With 3 kiddos, I need all of the caffeine I can get!
