Melissa Johnson of Best Friends for Frosting

Welcome, sweet friend! I’m Melissa, and I am so grateful you’re here!

Best Friends For Frosting is a guide for celebrating the every day and creating joyful memories  – Parties, Recipes, DIY, Home Decor, and Life! I truly believe that celebrating a joyful life and home starts within your own four walls and can be achieved in big and small ways – creating heartwarming memories that will last a lifetime!    

Here’s a little secret…

Truth be told, I used to find my recovering perfectionist-self so stressed out when styling a party, hosting a dinner, or putting together a perfect DIY project. But over the years, I learned it doesn’t have to be complicated. It can be simplified, fun and easily attainable! Your loved ones will remember how joyful something made them feel, rather than the perfect details that made you feel overwhelmed. Shifting this small perspective made all of these things fun again!

“Whether you are celebrating something big or just the everyday pieces of life, you have the opportunity to uplift and to make yourself and others feel valued.”

Joy is found when you let go of what you think your life is supposed to look like and start celebrating everything that it already is! The grass is greenest where you water it most. Whether you’re having a Hallmark movie night with your mom, dropping off flowers from the grocery store to surprise your neighbor, hosting dinner with a cute tablescape, surprising your kids after school with robot decorated brownies, surprising your husband with his favorite meal, or sending heartfelt notes just because – it’s so easy to tend to relationships and sprinkle joy like confetti!  

Celebrate a life you love inside and out in easily attainable ways!

Join me for original and semi-homemade recipes, fun DIY projects, memorable parties, home decor ideas, and other joyful ways to celebrate the every day!  And the best part? These ideas are here for YOU! Everything here is meant to be totally doable and tried and true. Try them, save them, share them and get inspired. We’re all in this together, sister! It’s so rewarding to celebrate and to choose joy, in life and at home!
