How to Make a Whimsical Easter Centerpiece

Started by Jill Bauer in For the Home Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Mom to Mom Blogs 1427478519.793

Hi, everyone! I love making my own centerpieces for the holidays, but I don't like biting off more than I can chew. I love quick, easy, fun centerpieces that make a big impact. And today, I’m going to show you how to make something charming for your Easter table. If you’re looking for that apothecary jar, it’s the 12” jar with lid by Valerie on QVC.com. You can also get the Bethlehem Lights battery-operated strands and glittery Luminara candle I used in the centerpiece on QVC.com, too. I’ll blog with you again on Tuesday…I hope you have a terrific week... Continue Reading

Easter Edition: Natural-Dyed Eggs & Egg Salad 3 Ways!

Last Reply by katte 1427246990.213 | Started by Jill Bauer in Kitchen & Food Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Mom to Mom Blogs

Hi, everyone! Easter is next weekend—what are your plans? Are you hosting family and friends? Are you a guest? Wherever you are, I hope you’ll have time to color some Easter eggs. And, this year, why not try using natural ingredients to dye them? I’ll bet you have most of these ingredients in your pantry or spice cabinet, which means one less trip to the store. And better yet, you know what you’re using to color your eggs. It’s nice to have that reassurance, you know? First thing’s first: I dyed the eggs while they cooked, so I used four separate pots...

Here’s another great idea for your Easter table…bunny napkins! If you missed my blog on dinnerware as décor be sure to check that out. Here's the video within that post on how to set your Easter table, which gives you the proper set up to display your bunny napkins.

Last Reply by qvcaa4kim 1427127223.47 | Started by Jill Bauer in For the Home Talk, Hosts & Personalities

Hi, everyone! Today is QVC’s all-day Spring Fever™ Garden Special event. And, I’ll be joining you AGAIN for a special edition of You’re Home with Jill at 4pm ET. Since spring officially arrives this Saturday (CAN I GET AN AMEN!?!) it’s time to start tending your garden! Here’s a little checklist of where you might begin: Now, they’re calling for an icy mix here in Eastern PA tomorrow. If you, too, live in an area where winter weather is still lingering, you might not want to plant anything outside just yet. But, you can go ahead and get planters st... Continue Reading

Dinnerware as (Spring!) Decor

Started by Jill Bauer in Kitchen & Food Talk, For the Home Talk, Hosts & Personalities 1426613620.49

Hi, everyone! If I were to give you my very best piece of entertaining advice, it’s to be realistic and take shortcuts where you can. I have the highest of hopes at every holiday and party but there’s only so much time in the day. So whether you order dessert instead of baking it or you buy pre-made favors at the party store, it’s really okay. REALLY. It's okay. No one is going to think you’re a lesser host or hostess. And really, how would anyone ever know?! So when it comes to entertaining this season, what if I told you you could decorate for spring just by setting... Continue Reading

A Private Tour of the Philadelphia Flower Show!

Last Reply by Geria 1426671152.36 | Started by Jill Bauer in For the Home Talk, In the Garden, Hosts & Personalities

I was honored again this year to be asked to speak at the Philadelphia Flower show. For those of you too far away to travel, I thought I’d give you a private tour! The theme was all about the movies, featuring Disney and Pixar films. Isn’t amazing what these designers can do? Who knew you could use under the hood of a car to plant and display! I’m surprised they didn’t feature to-maters in TOW MATER! With the much anticipated movie Cinderella, this gorgeous display that depicted a banquet in honor of the glass slipper was one of the talks of the show. I th... Continue Reading

Shamrock Pretzel Pops & DIY Pots of Gold - Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Last Reply by annieb88 1426291775.54 | Started by Jill Bauer in For the Home Talk, Suggestion Box

Hi, everyone! Tell me you’ve gotten sucked in on Pinterest and lost at least 30 minutes of your day. It happens to me all the time. I start with one idea, then I find three others I like, and then they start “suggesting” pins for you! And OF COURSE I like them all! If you haven’t made the Pinterest plunge just yet, think about it. It’s almost like flipping through the pages of your favorite magazine—only it’s endless. And you can create boards where you keep those ideas forever and ever. I bring Pinterest up because I was thinking about St. Patrick&... Continue Reading

Last Reply by ashland 1425053120.423 | Started by Jill Bauer in Jewelry Talk, Hosts & Personalities

This Friday is QVC’s annual Big Bonanza Silver Sale(R), one of my favorite days to shop with you of the year! I’ve now been a part of this day for 21 years. Anyone remember when we used to wear saloon girl type costumes?  Thank goodness our fashion direction for the day has evolved! I’m not sure what I’m going to wear yet, but I’ve pulled 2 looks to match up with some of the key pieces on the day, and thought you might like a sneak peek. This year’s assortment is filled with statement pieces, pops of color, and updated essentials. I’m lovi... Continue Reading

Need a Girls Night!? Host a Red-Carpet Party!

Started by Jill Bauer in Kitchen & Food Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Mom to Mom Blogs 1424201627.16

Hi, everyone! When’s the last time you got together with your girlfriends for a “you” night? Not too long ago...but probably longer than I want to admit...I met my best friend in New York City for the weekend. We had an amazing time but I remember my favorite part was coming back to the hotel after a long day, sprawling out on the bed, ordering room service, and then watching old movies all night. That’s my idea of the ultimate girl time…and I left New York feeling rejuvenated and refreshed…and ready to come home to my family. If it’s been awhile s... Continue Reading
