There's magican in having a real pine Christmas tree during the holidays. But I've stumbled several alternatives to a pine tree, especially if you are lacking space during the holiday or perhaps traveling and want to bring some decor with you wherever you go!
I cannot believe that May is already here! As promised, I'm going to post daily. Granted, most of these posts will be simple and just things that I've bookmarked in the past, but hopefully so habits will form and I'll post some photos from my DC trip as well as wedding/party inspirations in the midst of research!
To kick us off, I bookmarked this image months ago. I just thought it was SO clever to use clothespins to showcase an invitation. *Note, it's probably best to use really heavy notecard and an invitation that isn't too tall so that your base is secure. And, if in doubt, I would definitely position a vase of some sort behind it in case it does need some extra support.
And really, how adorable is the rest of the shower? I'd love to be a guest!
I really wished I retained more of the 7 years of French I took so that I could understand her site more. Wouldn’t these beautiful creations made of paper + fabric be wonderful for boutonnieres or centerpieces?
We put together a birthday party mock-up with all the decorations + snacks back in November for a family of 3 girls plus their friends. I didn’t have a chance to post the pictures until now, so here they are!
Isn't she the sweetest thing? You have to meet her, she's so spunky - love it!
I fell in love with these pom poms and thought I would make some for a quaint birthday party at the end of January.
I used styrofoam balls and pinned in a looped ribbon to create a little hook. I must say, these take a lot longer than you would think… about 30-45 min each? From the time it takes to cut the circles, glue gun them into a quarter, and then glue them to the actual ball. There were some minor casualties, but in the end, voila! It took a few days, but I was in good company with NCIS.
