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!

I love the look of this diy faux birch vase by Love & Lace. Wouldn’t it look lovely grouped in a set of three (at varying heights) as a centerpiece for an outdoor wedding or party? I’d house a beautiful bouquet of white flowers (such as peonies, garden roses and wax flowers) in each, or even long branches (like manzanita or pussy willow) that would stretch up over the center of a table.
Check out the full project and step-by-step directions by Stephanie here. It’s the perfect alternative to buying the real deal at ~$20 a pop…
Stephanie turned hers into gifts (a great favor idea), and because it’s essentially a decorated tin, made beautiful cookie containers out of the birch project! You could also use them as indoor decor for the mantle, dining room table or a kitchen nook. Be sure to check out her very creative blog while you’re visiting, too.
Happy Friday, everyone!
