Looking for an easy, homemade decoration for the tree--or perhaps a handcrafted gift? Whip up a collection of these Victorian style tinsel ornaments.
There's a font for everything. Whatever the mood, theme, or style, you can find lettering (usually for free) to match. But sometimes you just want something a little different. And for as much as I adore paper crafts, sometimes I like to switch it up and use other materials. That's what inspired these charming rustic twig letters.
To make these twig letters, you'll need:
I just love making and using fabric ribbon.
I love regular ribbon, too, but that can get really expensive very quickly.
Cupcake wrappers are so cute. Until you bake cupcakes in them. Then they turn translucent and weird and not cute any more. It's kind of sad, really. But luckily, some clever person thought of creating cupcake wrappers to camouflage the disappointing reality of cupcake papers.
I'm a big fan of edible cupcake toppers. Almost always go with that option, in fact. But sometimes you get an idea for how you want something to look, and it's just impossible to make it happen just using edible items. Well, maybe not impossible, but way beyond my pastry skills.
As soon as I came up with the concept of the A is for Addalyn birthday brunch, I knew I wanted to use alphabet blocks in the design. Pretty quickly, I came up with the idea of using stacked alphabet blocks as risers for a DIY tiered cake stand.
Did you see yesterday's post about making the big floral monogram A for the A is for Addalyn party? Well, now I'm going to show what I did after the party with all those roses.
My favorite single element from the A is for Addalyn party was definitely the large floral A on the center of the table.
I just love those great big round balloons that are so much easier to find these days. And I love that they have so much helium and loft that you can do all sorts of cool things to embellish them that you just can't do with regular balloons.
Bunting is really magnificent stuff. The way the flags flutter in the wind catches the eye, and makes any setting look like a party.
Plus, it's incredibly easy to customize for absolutely any party theme.
