Tile Backdrops are great for food photography and quite easy to make. All you need is:
- Tiles of your choice ( I choose those ones)
- Tile Glue
- Wooden Board
Apply the glue like in this picture(not too much so it won't squeeze out of the sides)
Press them gently on your wooden board and wait at least 2 hours before you lift your board.

Have fun doing it!
Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I'm german so we don't celebrate it but ever since I celebrated it with my cousin in Budapest, I really liked the idea of coming together and eating with friends/ family.
We have been hosting Thanksgiving since our 1st year of Medical School but I liked our table last year the most. Leonie is a real Decor Champ and just knows what looks good. Here is what we did:
I bought a ton of Hazelnuts, Mandarines pomegranate and some orange flowers. All we need is build a layer of the hazelnuts and lay a mandarine or pomegranate on the carpet of hazelnuts every now and then.
We didn't have enough vases so we just used our Russian mule cups!
Here you see how we arranged it! Leonie has a real talent for things like this!!
I found them at our Local Craft Store - So cute!!!
Hope this helps your budget friendly but creative heart!
There is only one thing I am excited about being old one day: I will have a whole house to decorate + money to buy decor. YEY. But for now we don't want to spend much $$ on decor supplies and actually managed to make our apartment look festive without much of a budget. Keep the decor things for as long as possible! It's not only cheaper , it is also better for the environment.
This Skull is from Tiger and was around 4 euros. Leonie ( my roommate) painted it with colors we still had at home.
This used to be a garland we bought back in 17 for around 4-6 euros I believe. We removed the thread and taped them into our kitchen.
Some people have a whole halloween village but so far we only have two witch houses (from 2018)! I want to extend this collection one day! All you need to do is buy some bird houses and get creative:)
The Hocus Pocus one is my favorite :)
This ghost garland and the bats are the only new additions to our halloween decor this year. The garland is from our local craft store (Paper concept, Wroclaw).
The best project ever! All you need is black Paper and a scissor. Leonie drew the bat and she and Ranja ( a friend from Uni) cut them out. Leonie taped them to the wall and VOILA.
Backdrops from 17 and another painter skull.
This was fun!

Especially during autumn I like to make my home look festive. As students, DIY is the easiest way to decorate without spending too much $.
Here are a few low budget projects, I'm planning on doing.
- This garland
- Making a "drink up witches" shirt
- PS Body Scrub
- Pumpkins with punches
- This wall hanging
- Another cute garland
- Cute Fridge Decor
- Pumpkin Overload
Hope you want to try some of those !!
- xo, Sarah.
This blog post might be a little late, but it's never too late to make your apartment autumn ready.
It's never easy for students to decorate their room / apartment.
But halloween decor options are:
PUMPKINS - The simplest decor of them all! They are cheap and you can get crazy creative with them! I definitely want to do more with pumpkins next year.
When I moved into my first apartment, I didn’t decorate at all because it was only temporary. Nevertheless, I always loved decorating! So I decided to decorate my next apartment in a beautiful, creative way. As we all know: Students are on a budget. They don’t have much money for expensive decor accessories. So what I can always recommend is: Pictures. Picture Walls. Picture displayed at shelves. In general pictures. They can have a huge impact on your apartments appearance and are very affordable.
