A Star Wars Party for a Little Jedi

Vesni from My Little Jedi sent over this adorable party from her son’s 1st birthday. Aniken (he’s named after one of the characters) had the perfect Star Wars party to celebrate with friends!

In Vesni’s words: “We had the most wonderful day and celebrated his birthday with our family and friends. The theme of the party had to be “Star Wars” as my son is named after one of the characters.

As for the sweet treats, I organized a mini candy buffet with a colour palette of red/black/blue lollies. The R2D2 birthday cake was made by Catherine from 2 Bites, the personalized chocolate bars and chocolate pops were made by the very talented Niki from Candy Soirees. The star wookie cookies and delicious star feature cupcakes were made by my lovely sister inlaw Suzanna. I also has organized personalized lolly pops from Pink Frosting.

We had inflatable light sabers for all the kids which they all loved & entirely enjoyed. The kids played ‘pin the light saber on a jedi’ game and the winner was presented with a ‘jedi certificate’.”


How cute are these wonderful labels? And that dessert table? By the way, a trip out to Vesni’s blog to check out all of her creative party ideas is well worth it – it’s adorable!

Favorite Fabric {& Wallpaper}: Thibaut

It’s amazing what a critical difference fabric and wallpaper can make in a space. A great example of this is the latest Thibaut collections which have me searching to find a location in the house where I can wallpaper just one teeny tiny space. Alas, I may have to wait until a little remodeling is done…

Check out the beautiful prints, vivid colors and woven fabrics that are available online. And if you’re just in need of some eye-candy, the above rooms from the Avalon collection provide beautiful inspiration to flip through.

More Favorite Fabrics here or at anytime in the right sidebar {see big button “Browse Favorite Fabrics”} for easy sorting of fun finds for projects and home.

Wouldn’t it be great to do a kitchen wall like the photo above?

Just in Time for Fall: Recycled Sweater Vases

I recently found this tutorial and immediately began searching for a time this week to swing by the local Goodwill for a few chunky sweaters.

Under the Table and Dreaming created these beautiful vase and candle holder covers, see the full tutorial here. Sleeves create the easiest slip-on cover, but Stephanie Lynn shares how to turn the rest of your old sweaters into creative and cozy liners as well.

Doesn’t the soft fabric make you ready for cool weather and warm fires?And how great would these be grouped on the mantel or as a centerpiece for an upcoming Fall dinner? Thank you, One Pretty Thing for sharing!
