Crafting and making has always been one of my favorite things to do, and it is even better when you do it with friends. Throw an easy craft party, with festive headbands for everyone to wear, refreshments, and a good stash of craft supplies to get the creativity flowing!
You may have banned these obnoxiously loud and annoying party squawkers from your house (who, me?!) but if you’re hosting a party outside – now that’s a different story. These are quick and easy to make and embellish, and can make a pretty centerpiece – that is, until little hands grab them and start the party train.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted a rainbow ribbon wall at my studio. I’ve collected tons of ribbon over the years, but up until now it’s just been sitting in boxes in my party closet. When we moved into the new studio last year, I purchased an awesome bottle drying rack at the Alameda Flea Market so that we could start displaying all our ribbon. We hung it up and threw on the ribbon we had, but it was still missing something. I knew we needed some special ribbon to fill in the holes. So, I was super excited when I met Angela Liguori the last time I was in New York. She sells the most beautiful Italian ribbon I’ve ever seen. When my Studio Carta order arrived in the studio, I literally gasped as I opened the box. The colors are so beautiful and the ribbon is perfect and soft. It was exactly what our wall needed. It’s funny because I realized I haven’t bought much purple ribbon over the years. When I put up the ribbon wall I only had one roll! The final result is a dream come true! I cannot wait to experiment with all this ribbon.

If you don’t have plans for Valentine’s Day plans yet, throw a fun party for your friends! Even though there are only a few days left, there’s still plenty of time to pull something together. Just send out a quick Evite right now then take a few hours to pick up all these items from local stores. It’s so easy, there’s really no excuse! xoxo
