Paper Flower Lights Garland

by Kathleen Ballos

Have you noticed Christmas items already popping up in stores? Although it is still a bit early, I like being able to use some of the items in non-Christmas ways, like this paper flower garland made from small white Christmas lights! This garland is very multi-purpose: you can make it for a party, home decor, or decorate your tree with it.

DIY Message Candle Centerpieces

by Michaela Egger

In my work as event designer, almost every dinner table setting is competed with candles. Votives, candlesticks, little lanterns, etc – there’s always the warm glow of candle light in one form or another because every single client loves the intimate, festive atmosphere candles create. So, why not use candles as the only centerpieces? This DIY will let you make a big statement with your table settings – in no time at all. Let your centerpiece “greet” your guests, spell out your table numbers or whatever else comes to your mind! I’ve provided three different printable templates – black & white, shades from yellow to pink and colder hues in blues and greens. Feel free to mix and match!

Paper Flower Party Hats

by Kathleen Ballos

Who can resist paper flowers? Now that it’s finally spring, I think it would be so much fun to host an April Showers Bring May Flowers party. I love making party hats because when you take a group photograph, the theme of the party is unmistakable – and in this case your guests would look like a bouquet!

Free Printable: Around the Clock Shower Invite

By Amanda Jane Jones


 

Whoever invented the “Around the Clock Bridal Shower” deserves a high five. Such a good idea! Each guest receives an invitation with either Breakfast—8am, Lunch—noon, Dinner—5pm and “Dessert”—10pm. They then purchase a gift according to their assigned time/meal. It makes sure all your bases are covered…a bit of practical and a bit of fun!

Instructions: 1) Download the free printable below and print out each invite. If you so choose, you can print the stripes on the back. Who doesn’t love some extra stripes?!? 2) Cut out and fold in half. Easy!
