Hitch Studio’s first appearance on KELOLand Living was in February of 2020 and we were thrilled to talk about “How to Plan the Perfect Proposal”! Since then, Renee Bauman has been featured on KELOLand Living eight times total and she absolutely loves being asked back to talk about all kinds of topics, from party planning to table etiquette. If you didn’t have a chance to catch all eight segments, we’ve recapped them below for you! Each video is six minutes packed with tips and tricks on each topic. Enjoy!

Wine Etiquette Tips:

Featured on December 14, 2020, this entire segment was about wine etiquette and how to ENJOY the experience, not be intimidated by it. Renee showcases wine by Schade Winery and Vineyard and gifts tips for how to choose a glass, how to choose a wine, and covers the 5 S’s of wine tasting. Tune in and see her final interview of 2020!

The Right Way to Set a Table:

Featured on November 23, Renee Bauman shares dinner etiquette tips for your holiday table this season! She shows you how to set your table, which forks to use and when, the proper way to eat your dinner roll and spoon your soup, where to put your silverware and napkin when you’re finished eating, how to hold a wine glass, and more. The name card on the dinner plate was hand-lettered by Jamie Morin Designs. We love featuring other small businesses! Watch the entire segment here:

Tips for Throwing a Successful Baby Shower:

Posted on September 30, 2020, this KELOLand Living segment featured baby shower tips if you’re planning a shower for a baby girl, baby boy, or even a gender-neutral party if the parents are keeping it a secret. The pumpkin and maple cake featured in this segment was provided by Random Sweets. I talk about lots of fun game ideas in this one, so be sure to watch!

How to Throw a “Christmas In July” Party:

If you’re anything like my husband’s family, it’s easier for the entire family to fly home and get together in July rather than Christmas. Consider doing any of these themes or ideas for your “Christmas in July” party! Featured on July 21, 2020, but applicable year-round.

Date Night Ideas Through Covid:

This segment is almost a full seven minutes because it’s so packed with ideas for how to have socially distanced date nights. I even include a scavenger hunt idea (that is SO MUCH FUN!!) as a free download on the KELO site. This segment was aired on April 13, 2020 and features Mama Peacock Handmade jewelry-making kits and I give TONS of other ideas like doing virtual yoga from Prairie Soul Yoga.

Not only do I give lots of St. Patrick’s Day food and activity ideas, but they’re also kid-friendly AND budget-friendly! Shown on March 12, 2020, these tips and fun ideas are just in time for any green parties you’re throwing! Here, I show chocolate-covered Oreos from Chocolatte as a fun treat!

How to Plan the Perfect Proposal:

On Leap Year this year, February 29, 2020, it’s an age-old tradition that the female gets to ask the male to marry HER instead of the other way around! On February 26, 2020, listen as I give you tips for planning the perfect proposal, from photography tips to what would make it most meaningful, no matter what day you plan to propose. The flowers in this segment are from Hand Tied and I talk about using the Wedding Day Designer to help you plan a wedding once you’re engaged after the most perfect proposal!
