Here’s a fun little tip for all of that left over wrapping paper you might have lying around.
I’m a huge fan of using a roll as an impromptu table runner or cut up as individual place mats (it helps incorporate beautiful patterns and colors – plus you can toss it when you’re done), but I love the idea of using this simple Martha Stewart tutorial to create small flowers for either a bouquet or even as individual stems wrapped around your silverware or wine glass.
Here’s the full DIY instructions.
Beautiful, right? Perfect for a shower, birthday or even a wedding. I love how simple and classic it looks!

This vintage-esq first birthday is absolutely beautiful. There are too many great details… so I’ll just let the pictures do the talking:
I adore all of the little paper and craft details…
Anna, who owns Blissful Babes in the Philippines, designed this French-inspired celebration for her daughter’s first birthday. Wouldn’t it be beautiful for a shower or even as wedding inspiration as well?
My favorite detail might be the ‘year of firsts’ table that Anna put together to showcase Arie’s very first year (last picture in the below collage), though those fabric birds are amazingly adorable, too!

Pantone has named Honeysuckle as their 2011 Color of the Year – and with Valentine’s Day just around the corner I’ve been inspired by the ‘not quite hot pink but warmer than coral’ color for the home, wardrobe and even a Valentine’s Day party.
Honeysuckle (I thought of yellow when I initially heard the color) makes a great impact in small doses. I love the idea of a pink rug in a grey or navy room – or perhaps as a small side table, patterned pillow or a knitted throw for the couch.
For the wardrobe, how about a thin honeysuckle belt over a darker/neutral cardigan? Or even in a pair of daring heels!
