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!)

It’s always a nice idea to show your thanks with a little sweet treat. You can make these simple thank you bags for party guests or for anyone whom you want to say “thank you” to. These translucent vellum thank you bags show off the sweet treats inside and can be stitched closed or sealed using washi tape or adhesive.

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!)

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!
