Flower Pretzel Bites – A Fun Spring Snack Idea

These flower pretzel bites are a fun little Spring snack idea that kids of all ages can help to make – and then enjoy!

Honestly, we don’t consume a lot of sugar around here. Mainly because several years ago, after baby number 3 was born, we took our kids off dairy and most sugar. They had been sick frequently with ear infections and our naturopath suggested that might help. Sure enough they got better. Over time we’ve become a little more lax with it just because they’ve grown up a lot and don’t get sick as often as when they were younger. Especially when the weather finally starts to get warmer and cold and flu season have passed. Like at Easter! So we thought these flower pretzel bites would be fun to make together for a spring snack idea.

My aha moment!

I found my style and was able to bring our small space together for our family of 8! My aha moment was when you talked about undertones! That was the moment when I could bring everything together.

Falling in love with our home again

My ah-ha moment was when I realized I was going about things all the wrong way. I loved the house but it didn't feel like home. BUT now because of your course...I am falling in love with our home all over again.

Decorating is not as complicated as it once seemed!

I love your easy process to determine my style. I've also learned that my style has changed over the years and seasons of my life and that decorating properly/successfully is NOT as complicated as it once seemed!!!

Filled me with the confidence I need

Oh Shannon, thank you, thank you thank you!!  I wish I could download you and take you with me, but your Decor Staples Checklist has definitely given me the guidance and filled me with the confidence I need!

Love this idea!

Orbs are such a great decor item to add to a space. Staining the hoops really gives them a vintage feel. Thanks for the inspiration.


I love your instructions!

LMAO!! I love your How Not to Paint Cabinet instructions! It made me laugh with good humor! Kudos for sharing your lessons learned!!

Done with Haphazard Decor!

I'm so done with Haphazard Decor! (Yes, I think I just made that "style" up). Thank you for your style quiz!


So Accurate!

I thought the quiz was so accurate, I want my friends to do it. I feel I like such a mix of things and the quiz described them all so well!
