Todd & Erin’s “Shop Locally” Holiday Guide – Utah DIY Wedding

Todd & Erin’s “Shop Locally” Holiday List – Utah DIY Wedding.

Meet Kathy Cushman, entrepreneurial Queen, and owner of Utah DIY Wedding. I’ve been to Kathy’s weddings before, and the woman is amazing. She’s created Utah’s largest wedding decor rental inventory. I’m not kidding:

  • 3000 sq ft showroom
  • 20+ backdrops
  • 1200 inventory items

You can find Kathy’s genius with Utah DIY Wedding on Facebook, InstagramPinterest, and on YouTube. To set up a free tour and consultation, click here.

For as low as $395, you’ll get COMPLETE Wedding Decor Rental.

This includes:

Utah DIY Wedding has a “Small Business” special: a FREE upgrade – that’s 15 choices of premium items – if you book by November 30th. 

Want to see it all in person? Here’s a perfect opportunity!

The Grand Opening of her new showroom:

1302 W Utah Ave., Payson UT 84651
(801) 753-8093
Small Business Saturday
Nov 30th, 2019
9am to 4pm
There’s food, drinks, and be sure to enter the drawing for a free backdrop rental that she’ll be giving away during the Grand Opening – that’s $125 value!


She has a huge variety of styles- Vintage…


Rustic and Boho…



How does this work?

It’s delightfully simple…

You pick up your selected package at Kathy’s warehouse- and she has rental rates that run for as long as 5 days- there’s a lot to do during the wedding, she gets it. You set all your goodies up, then return it all after the wedding. For $395!

Kathy’s joined us at Erin’s Night Out before- and I’m always amazed at her creativity, her charm and her enormous heart. She takes such pleasure in making women feel like the goddess they are. And it’s not just weddings! Old-style tea parties, corporate events, special parties …  she’s your girl. You can reach Kathy at or call for a free consultation at 801.753.8093




Stopping Family Fights at Thanksgiving with One Sentence – 11.26.19

Stopping family fights at Thanksgiving with one sentence.

Dr. Julie Hanks has the one sentence that will stop every argument at the Thanksgiving dinner table – she’ll show you how you’ll have a peaceful holiday and you will like it!

The Todd’s made a really impressive Cranberry Jalapeno Cream Cheese Dip that was really tasty – and I hate jalapenos. And meet our Shop Locally Legends, Utah DIY Wedding and Willow & Jae Boutique.

Creating Holiday Traditions – The Christmas Tree Memory String – 11.27.18

Creating Holiday Traditions – The Christmas Tree Memory String. What are your holiday traditions? One of our favorites is the Christmas Tree Memory String- the bottom disc of each year’s tree attached to a ribbon. It’s so fun to count through the years and remember all the highlights. What’s your favorite ritual during this time of year? For instance…


Creating Holiday Traditions. Zoe and I (our 7 year old) are really getting into baking tiny desserts. Some are Pinterest-worthy, others, more like “nailed it!” The Teeny-Tiny Pumpkin Pies (with a one net carb, sugar-free version!) are freaking delicious. Add the recipe to your baking traditions from here.


Oh, by the way- every single food item is out to kill you. Seriously. The federal government has recalled just about anything you can put in your mouth and chew. Oh, honey. Romaine lettuce was just the beginning… pork wontons… ground beef… ground turkey… and the most egregious, evil thing of all- Cap’n Crunch Peanut Butter cereal. You will have to pry my Cap’n Crunch Cereal from my cold, dead hands. Which apparently could be an option. Salmonella has been one busy pathogen this fall…


Also, meet our new “Shop Locally” friend- Kathy Cushman of Utah DIY Weddings, one of the smartest businesswomen I know.
