Mini Mother’s Day Trophies DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

And the award goes to….Mom! Of course, who else?! These little party store trophies get a new life as a sweet token for Mom. Because they’re so easy to make, you can give them to all the moms in your life – friends, sisters, moms, step-moms, mom-in-laws….perfect for place settings or to give out at a Mother’s Day brunch. I filled them with fresh miniature flowers, but you could also fill with them with tissue paper flowers and pop them in the mail.

Floral Mom Cake Topper DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

How sweet would it be to surprise your mom with a yummy cake and a beautiful handmade cake topper? Grab a cake from your local bakery, or make a simple chocolate cake (because, who doesn’t love chocolate?). Adding a handmade topper will make it that much more special. (PS – Mother’s Day brunch!)

Pretty Paper Party Horns DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

You may have banned these obnoxiously loud and annoying party squawkers from your house (who, me?!) but if you’re hosting a party outside – now that’s a different story. These are quick and easy to make and embellish, and can make a pretty centerpiece – that is, until little hands grab them and start the party train.

Corn Husk Carrots DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

Did you see these beautiful corn husk creations on The House That Lars Built? I thought the shape of the corn husk lent itself to being a carrot – which can be used for place cards, to decorate a wreath, or to embellish a pretty little Easter basket. PS – Paper Carrot Treat Bags!

Peanut Bunny Favors DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

There’s not much cuter than a little creature made out of a peanut.  Nestled in their beds of green grass,  these charming little Easter bunnies will guard the candies hidden inside. And would you believe that fluffy grass is made out of a green paper napkin!!
