Origami Picnic Boxes DIY

Here is a sweet little idea that would be great for a baby shower or a picnic. The best part is all you need is paper and our handy template to put this together. We’ve partnered with Blue Diamond Almonds for this easy way to serve food at a party or a picnic. (Perfect for holding healthy snack foods like almonds!) These come together really quickly and I like that you can customize colors to suit your party really easily. It’s a nice little easy touch to add to a laid back party. See below for full instructions!

Carnival Party Ideas

Growing up, I loved going to the county fairs and carnivals that happened around my hometown in the summertime. So I think it would be fun to host a carnival-themed party before summer ends! On Oh Happy Day, we’ve done a bunch of DIYs that would work great with a theme like this. With the party already planned, all you need is to set a date and invite over your friends!
