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.

Before: your average ho-hum plain wooden door. After: a modern, spruced-up entryway with a subtle touch of glam.
Inspired by this amazing wardrobe makeover, Leah Moss of Apartment Therapy created her own diy trellis door with a bit of painters tape and a quart of paint.
She used 3/4 inch painters tape to create the overlapping trellis pattern (which is a series of squares stacked on their corners) and then painted the door in Benjamin Moore’s Barely Teal mixed with their self-priming Aura line.
If you’re interested in contrasting colors, try painting the entire door prior to taping with another color/priming blend.
Cool idea, right? Here are three more, starting with two closet makeovers and one front door that’s sure to grab a bit of attention. All images from Apartment Therapy.
I especially love the idea of taking lackluster sliding closet doors and giving them a quick update. Painting isn’t the only option, what about wallpapering or covering in corkboard squares?

Here’s a bit of inspiration teaming with soft yellows and golden accents - reminds me a bit of lemon sherbet, actually, which is just perfect for a summer celebration.
This inspiration board lends itself to any sort of shower, birthday or even for a wedding. Or how about just a summer get-together with friends under the stars?
These miniature yellow bags would look great with a custom stamp and filled with sweet treats.
Below, vintage lace works perfectly as a table cloth, and wild flowers in a matching palette are a beautiful addition to a simple tablescape full of thrift ware finds.
I love this dessert bar with it’s colorful accents and the green grass moat around the base of the cupcakes. We did something similar for a friend using wheat grass, though you could also check out your local home improvement store for flats of grass.
A delicious bourbon spiked ginger lemonade punch and more inspiration after the jump. Read more »
