Confetti Systems

These photos of the Confetti Systems work studio are stunning. I love paper. I really can’t think of anything prettier. (By the way Sight Unseen is such a fantastic site.)

These are the most beautiful Pinatas I’ve ever seen. I want to plan a party around one of these gorgeous things.

DIY Anniversary Gifts

by Kathleen Ballos

Did you know that there is a specific material assigned to each year of marriage? I thought it would be fun to use the list as inspiration for DIY anniversary gift packages. For this post I focused on paper (1 year), wood (5 years), and silver (25 years) but wouldn’t fruit & flowers (4 years), cotton (2 years), and lace (13 years) be fun to do as well? It’s a lot of fun coming up with creative and affordable ideas to fill each package – let us know if there are any other cute gifts to include!
