I’ve had such a wonderful weekend – I’ve shared my birthday with great friends on an all-day adventure (a surprise from the husband), had a guest appearance on the San Diego 7/39 NBC Morning Show and just finished a day at the Stylish Spaces Design Expo where I shared many a new project (10 in total!).
But sadly I lost my computer to an ill-fated drop and so while I type out this message on my iPhone I’m lamenting my blog which has received zero updates in four days. My computer (if all goes well!) returns tomorrow and I look forward to sharing many pictures and projects with you!
I love the look of paper flags draped around a room, outside from tree to tree, or even as the backdrop to a dinner or dessert buffet. There’s something sweet and festive about the idea and it creates instant party ambiance.
Jump over to this quick tutorial for detailed step-by-step directions from Project Wedding to create your own.
Tissue paper cut into rectangles, glue and string are the only materials needed for this quick version (perfect for a Memorial Day picnic!).
Wrap your newly created bunting around an empty gift wrapping paper roll or paper towel roll for easy storage and transportation. This would be perfect for a birthday, shower or even wedding (image strings of soft whites and creams hung around an outdoor venue). Can’t wait to try it out.
A warm welcome to Anitavee, an online store that offers custom throw pillows in designer prints at a fraction of the price. Readers who enter ‘pepper’ as a promocode through May 31 will receive $10 off of their order!
A bit about the shop… Melvina, owner and designer behind the store, purchases high-end remnants and bolt ends from interior design studios and furniture/home decor manufacturers for all of her pillows to pass on savings and value to customers. Anitavee carries traditional, modern, ethnic, vintage and even burlap/natural fabric pillows. New pillows are added regulalry and all pillows ship – regardless of the quantity – within 2-4 days for a flat rate of $5.95.
The coral print, zebra stripes and burlap pillows are my favorite – they would look great as accents in the living room or tossed on the bed.
