Looking for a unique party theme for Christmas or New Years? Top Party Ideas shares a very festive bohemian spread that would be perfect for either holiday!
I love the bright colors and sparkly details! Martini glasses filled with pastel mini bulbs and gems as well as the stacked paper lantern ornaments are a few of my favorites (check out this post on handmade paper ornaments to replicate the combination). Read more »

While we may have all seen this neat idea before, I thought I’d take a quick moment to point it out after finding this ‘ornament chandelier’ in a shop in Port Douglas.
So easy to make! These would be beautiful from any hanging lamp pendant or chandalier — or inside a window frame for a glittery display.
These yarn ornaments (or decorative party spheres for any other time of the year) were also showcased in a little eclectic shop here. They’re made by: wrapping yarn or thin colored twine around a perfectly round balloon, covering yarn in a glue + water mixture (similar to paper mache), and waiting until dry before popping balloon. So fun! GIANT ornaments hanging from the ceiling, a staircase or from the mantel in front of the fireplace (when it’s not in use, of course ).
Now… where to find said perfectly round balloon…

When I was a 12 or so, my cousin hand made stockings for each member in the family. I can’t think of a more personal and lovely gift to give during the holiday season! Mismatched, quilted, knitted, refashioned — what a neat vintage Christmas feel to have a series of handmade stockings hanging from the fireplace.
Stockings above by Made and the garland of stockings below found at Martha Stewart Living. The Furbish Theory on Etsy has designed these beautiful stockings (bottom of collage) out of simple, organic materials.
I’ve pulled together inspiration for your own handmade stockings using every kind of material you can think of. Don’t have the time to make stockings from scratch? Embellish store bought ones with buttons, broaches, lace or felt cut outs.
Get the kids involved too — it will be a keepsake they hold on to for a lifetime. I still cherish my handmade stocking and honor it as a special gift by hanging it up each Christmas! MUCH more inspiration after the jump. Read more »
