A DIY Woodland Backdrop

by Michaela Egger

A woodland creatures party ideally takes place in the forest – somewhere in a sheltered clearing nestled in a charming woodland area. But not everybody is lucky enough to live near such a place. Or if they do, there’s always the chance of rain. So for a plan B, let’s take the party inside! To create that woodland feeling, you can bring in twigs, branches, moss and plants. And you can create this simple forest paper backdrop made with kraft paper and water color. A great DIY even for smaller children. (PS – Woodland party invitations!)

Wrapping Inspiration

A few weeks ago, I shared 10 beautiful envelopes that were really inspiring me. Lately, I’ve been finding the most beautiful wrapped packages that make me want to wrap presents for everyone I know!  They all seem pretty easy to recreate, but I can’t decide which one’s my favorite. What about you?

Punched Leaf Napkin Rings

by Ashley Page Norton

I love the idea of tying a piece of rosemary into a mini wreath for a napkin ring – a little bit of greenery always looks nice on a table. Here’s a way to have a set of leafy napkin rings you never have to throw away – they’re made of paper! You can make these into mini wreaths which are super pretty, or customize them by making letters for everyone’s first name who’ll be sitting at your table. Either way it’s a little bit of spring to keep all year round!
