Gold Party

It gets to that point when your children are old enough to know to ask for cartoon parties (ie: Ninja Turtles or Spiderman.)  So this year when my son uncharacteristically asked for a “Golden Party” I took the theme and ran with it before he could change his mind.

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!

Monster Party

My friend Eunice Moyle of the fabulous letterpress stationery company Hello Lucky showed me a picture of the ticket booth she made for a Monster Halloween Party. My first thought was “What a great theme for a party” and then I asked her to let me take pictures to share. She made the whole thing from cardboard and tempera paints, it is seriously genius! It’s just a reminder that the the best things are usually made from creativity and not expensive materials.
