Summer BBQ with Mud Pie

May 9, 2018

Summer Fun with Mud Pie!

Summer is right around the corner and we could not be more excited to spend a few days out in the sun and by the water! We invited a few Mud Pie besties and their little ones over for a Summer BBQ. It was a day filled of laughter and fun. We had an adults only drink bar, absolutely delicious food grilled by one of the hubbys, played in the grass, cooled down in the pool and wrapped up the evening with s’mores! Check out how we styled our Summer BBQ with everything Mud Pie:

DIY: Mud Pie In Your Home Part Two

April 25, 2017

Hey babes! 

Time to get your DIY juices flowing, because we have another crafty wall for you to try this season.

So you’ve heard it before, but if you are new to the blog party (which you should just go ahead and subscribe to us, that way you’ll stay in the loop!), we will give you a little background on our ridiculously amazing design team.

A little backstory on our Super Squad

Every year, twice a year, our Mud Pie Visual Merchandising Director, Chad Gieseke rounds up his team and creates a master piece of a showroom based on that seasons catalog.

It takes a lot of time and hard work to make a showroom as innovative and beautiful as Chad and his team does. “I’m constantly thinking of ideas for the showroom. It never stops,” says Chad. Where do all of his magnificent ideas come from? Well, it’s simply the product itself. He picks up on the color, textures and icons from the product and designs from there.

And you may think that is simple. Oh, but then add in three different lines (kids, living and fashion) and then a 11,000 sq ft showroom in Atlanta, a 3,800 sq ft showroom in Las Vegas, a 4,000 sq ft showroom in Dallas AND a 800 sq ft showroom in New York. Believe it or not, Chad, his 4 freelance designers and his MP sidekick Nola have the same amount of hours in the day as we do. And just saying, I’ve never seen Chad, Nola and the team in the same room as Superman, Superwoman and their team..

Now onto the goods

We highlighted Chad and his team’s work on four different walls in the Atlanta Showroom for Spring 2017. Our second stop on this super crafty train features the jute webbing wall. How cool?! It’s like a life size weaving loom. This wall featured our Hydrangea items (hint hint: Many you can find on mud-pie.com right now!). Along with the jute webbing, you can create your own pop of color by adding ribbon or dyed jute webbing! The best part about this wall is you can keep it up year round. Hang photos, plaques, anything you can think of!

Now, off to DIY!

Game Night: Holiday Edition

December 22, 2016

 

familyfun

The holidays are FINALLY here!! And that means A LOT of time with your family, friends and loved ones! Other than enjoying delicious food, laughing over old memories and unwrapping gifts, you’ll have free time on your hands this weekend. It’s our version of Game Night: Holiday Edition! Here are a few fun games you can add to your family time!

Christmas Bingo can be so much fun, especially when the markers are chocolate! Print out as many boards as you need and get playing!

christmasbingo

Now this game is one of our favs. You can play it two ways. First way, you need a few wrapped presents, mittens or oven mitts and a pair of dice. The first person starts with the oven mitts next to the present. When that player puts on the mittens and tries to unwrap the present, the person to their right rolls the dice. They keep rolling until they get doubles. Once they roll a pair, the next player puts on the mittens and tries to unwrap the gift, while the person to their right rolls the dice!  The person who opens the present completely gets to keep it!

The second way is just as fun. For this game, you will need a bunch of small boxes to wrap and as many pieces of blank paper as you have small boxes. You will then draw the words (or use a picture) SANTA on one of the pieces of paper. Place each piece of paper into one of the boxes and wrap them. Let’s say you have a group of ten people. So you will have 10 wrapped boxes that have pieces of paper in them, one has the picture or word SANTA. At the same time, each person puts on their mittens and grabs their box! You unwrap until you find out if you have SANTA inside your box. If you don’t, you can steal someone who is still going to try to see if their box has it! Winner is the one who gets the SANTA and of course they get a prize!

This website has 25 super creative party games. Check out all of them and then tell us what you think!

Did you know Hanukkah starts on Christmas Eve? Regardless of which holiday you celebrate, try out the Dreidel game! If you hdo not have a pack of dreidels, here is a print out you can cut and glue together. For this game, all you will need is a driedel and a bunch of gelt (gold chocolate coins)! You can also use pennies, Jelly Beans, or other small objects! Each player puts one piece of their gelt into the center, this will be known as the pot. The first person spins the dreidel and waits until it lands on a side. Bellow is a graph of what happens when each letter is landed on!

If the pot becomes empty, all players add one piece of their gelt back into the pot. If the player runs out of gelt, they lose, but if they end up with all the gelt, they win!!!

This game is perfect if you have a bunch of little ones hanging around! All you will need for this game is chocolate and the dot stickers you would normally use for a garage sale! On the stickers, write a letter or number. Make sure you do each letter or number twice so it has a match.Grab 16 chocolates (can be more of course!) and place one sticker on the bottom of each one. Mix up the chocolates and set them in a row. The first person looks under two chocolates and tries to find a match. Time to use your memory! Keep going until all of the matches are found! Winner will get to eat the most chocolate!

memory-game

Now this game is SUPER fun! What you will need is a box of Saran Wrap and a bunch of goodies (can be candy, toys, Mud Pie clothes, what ever you want!) Before the game begins, a few people will need to help create the ball! Once it is ready to go, the fun begins! The first person starts with the ball in their lap. They try to unwrap as much as they can while the person to their right rolls a pair of dice. Once that person rolls doubles, the ball moves to the next player and it begins again! There are a lot of goodies in the ball, so keep what you unwrap as a gift! There are other ways you can make the game more fun, like blindfold the person unwrapping, make them wear mittens, use two balls for large groups, or make the person stand up while unwrapping! This game is fun for all ages!

wrapgame

This holiday season, appreciate time with your family. Every day is a gift, so enjoy it! After you have posted your Mud Pie goodies using #mudpiegift, put your phone away and live in the moment! This Game Night: Holiday Edition will be one that creates memories that will last a lifetime!

Have a safe and happy holiday weekend Mud Pie loves!

Gobble Gobble It’s A Mud Pie Friendsgiving!

November 15, 2016

gobblegobble_mudpiefriendsIt’s hard to believe, but Thanksgiving is right around the corner! We swear we were just pool-side
with our Seven Seas Scarf-Sarong, our Sailboat Toile Tote and sporting our Bucket Sun Hat. But no
worries, we have the BEST lineup of Mud Pie goodies for you this Thanksgiving.

There is a lot to be thankful for this year and who better to spend time with over the holiday than
your friends! The hot new trend before the official holiday is an evening filled with friends, food
and fun times. What’s the word on the street? It’s called  ‘Friendsgiving’ and you need to get in
on it, now!!

So call your closest buds, set up a date (usually the Wednesday before Thanksgiving), figure out
your menu and get to cooking! You’re about to host your best Friendsgiving yet!

cranberries

So we have created the PERFECT Friendsgiving appetizer for you to try this year. This dish will DEFINITELY impress your
friends and make their tummies oh so happy. It’s an easy go-to that takes no time to whip up and
gets people talking. Let us introduce you to Phyllo Cups with Brie and Cranberry Sauce. (Is your
mouth watering yet?)

|Total Time: 25 Minutes | Serves: 15 friends|

In addition to the Cranberry Dish Set, serve your yummy treats on these
savvy platters! Our Turkey Dip Bowl (1) is perfect for little snacks or individual deserts (you can never go
wrong with anything sweet and adding a little pumpkin spice makes everything oh so nice!!
Daydreaming about food now…) Our Turkey Hostess Tray (2) can be used for bread and butter or slice some turkey and lay
it on there!  I bet you can see where we are going with the Oh So Thankful Baker
Set (3)….Yup! STUFFING! A Friendsgiving must! And the best part about these three super adorable
serving dishes you may ask? If you are going over to a friends house for your Friendsgiving, you
can leave the dish there as a thank you for them to keep! You are sooooo WELCOME!

 Why? Because we are going to give you tips on how to make
your Friendsgiving table one that your friends will be talking about for YEARS! Our Give Thanks
Turkey Runner looks absolutely PERFECT down any table and you can always be a DIY-er (Do It
Yourselfer) and grab a few leaves and sticks from your backyard to add to your runner.

Now we know, everyone loves everyone these days, but maybe there are a few people you want to sit
next to more than others. To make sure you get to sit next to BFF Sarah or hubby Paul, get these
Pumpkin Place Card Holders so everyone knows who they are rubbing elbows with!

It’s Friendsgiving, so everyone better have some sort of drink in their hand, because all good
stories start with a drink…right!? Make sure you place these Give Thanks Cocktail Napkins next to
the drinks or appetizers to establish the mantra for the evening.

It’s the best worst part about Friendsgiving. You’ve officially unstuffed the turkey
and stuffed your belly. So now, it’s time to kick back on the couch and reminisce the good times
shared amongst your friends. But of course, you have the best sense of style, so you already bought
this Thanks & Giving Pillow Wrap to add that little extra something to your living room right?!
Phewph, good!

Your Friendsgiving is about sharing happy times with friends
who are like family and have been there through thick and thin. If you get the chance, take a look
around and take it all in. You are surrounded by people who love you and will always have your
back. Make sure you realize how lucky are and seize the moment. Our Happy Everything Sign is a
perfect reminder to be happy during the holidays!
