Tabletop Mini Golf Game

by Ashley Page Norton 

I love to think of fun ways to get through the winter – here in New York it can be pretty brutal so indoor activities are always a plus. This tabletop mini golf course brings the outdoor fun inside so you can play during any season. You can design your course to be as challenging as you like and add all the special features you can think of. Set it up as a fun party activity on those cold nights.

Gold Pretzel Napkin Rings

by Ashley Page Norton 

These napkin rings are super simple to make and look so luxe. With air dry clay, there is no need to fuss with the oven so it’s so easy to create the pretzel shapes. They mingle well with other gold or brass items to create a sophisticated holiday tablescape.

Giant Paper Alphabet Blocks

by Ashley Page Norton 

Paper is definitely my favorite medium! Here is a paper project you can customize in so many ways and you probably already have all the materials. These blocks are great to have on hand for baby showers, birthday parties, holidays, etc. You can use them over and over again, just put useful letters on them and make them in a color palette you love. This pink variety would decorate an adorable second birthday for a little girl!

Matisse Inspired Autumn Mobile

by Ashley Page Norton 

I recently saw the Matisse cut outs show at the Met, and it was definitely inspirational. This simple mobile is reminiscent of the shapes Matisse used, but more directly taken from fall leaves. The warm metallics and wood tones will look beautiful over your Thanksgiving table, or just hanging around the house as the season changes.
