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!

(PS – 10 ways to decorate with flowers.)

This time of year is just begging for an outdoor get together… How about a baby or wedding shower, with pops of orange and yellow, and flowers throughout to help bring the whole look together!

Plant a Flower Day Card

by Ashley Page Norton

I’m not always perfect at remembering the birthdays I should remember, so it’s nice to send out a little note to friends and family who live far away when it’s not their birthday or a major holiday. A great excuse to keep in touch is coming up on March 12: Plant a Flower Day! Take advantage of this awesome holiday by sending cards adorned with a flower made out of seed paper. When planted, the seeds inside the paper will bloom into real wildflowers. Even if winter isn’t over yet, these cards feel like spring!

I love having pretty taper candles around in great colors – they add such romance and ambiance to special occasions. This Valentine-themed paper wreath with scalloped leaves and heart shaped flowers is a great way to display them during a romantic dinner.
