DIY Anniversary Gifts

by Kathleen Ballos

Did you know that there is a specific material assigned to each year of marriage? I thought it would be fun to use the list as inspiration for DIY anniversary gift packages. For this post I focused on paper (1 year), wood (5 years), and silver (25 years) but wouldn’t fruit & flowers (4 years), cotton (2 years), and lace (13 years) be fun to do as well? It’s a lot of fun coming up with creative and affordable ideas to fill each package – let us know if there are any other cute gifts to include!

Beehive Cloche

by Ashley Page Norton 

So many of my friends are having kids these days that I find myself working on baby showers all the time. Here is a cute idea for a party with a honey bee theme – perfect for a shower or a kid’s birthday. Making this beehive cloche is super simple, as it uses items you probably have on hand. They’ll be a great handmade touch to a bright, sunny party!

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.
