Give a Gift

Everyone loves to give and receive a beautiful gifts, they don’t have to be expensive, adding a personal touch to a little gift turns a small thank you into something extra-special. I thought I would share with you a couple of cute gift giving ideas. We used our Kraft Drinks Carrier as a cute and practical alternative gift presentation box.

We filled our Drinks Carrier with home-made elderflower cordial and some sunny daffodils, perfect for a sweet Mothers Day present, teacher gift or a thank you gift.

Another use of these little carriers is as alternative Party Bags. Fill with party favors and sweets and your little guests can carry it off at the end of the party.

We also put together this cute mini picnic hamper, perfect for a light lunch. We teamed it with our 500ml glass bottle full of cool apple juice.

Cute Bunting DIY

I believe that bunting is the ultimate decoration! Whether it’s a party, celebration, event, BBQ, knees up, frankly there is no occasion that cannot be improved upon by a string of bunting.

Make easy bag bunting

We do have hand-made bunting in the shop, however when the mood takes me I also like to make my own. I have a knack of creating bunting out of anything, I have recycled allsorts into bunting; old jumpers, paper plates, baking cups, playing cards, old maps and books (my ‘dirty bunting’ as friends called it is infamous and made from unwanted copies of Fifty Shades of Grey!)

Kids Party Paper Decorations

My most recent bunting project is probably my easiest and quickest to date…Treat Bag Bunting!

You will need:

A selection of treat bags/party bags/sweet bags (12 bags make 3mtrs)
Ribbon or bias binding 1-1.5cm wide 3m long
A Sewing Machine

Simply sew the bags to the ribbon/binding, I sewed the bottoms of the bag so that they hung upside-down. Leave a gap of a bags width between your flags. Hang and enjoy!

Fringe Tassel Tail Balloons

Tassel Tail Balloons are still a hot party decoration for 2014. You may remember last year I posted a D.I.Y how to make tassel tails for big balloons. Well I thought I would share with you a little balloon-tail cheat.

Tassel tails, (although they look amazing) are quite time consuming to construct, a very quick cheat to get a similar effect is to add fringe garland tails to your balloons.

Balloon Tassel Tail

Trust me kids love these, so for a cheap but ‘jaw-dropping-wow’ feature to a child’s party add fringe tassel tails to your balloons, these are also beautiful for weddings and can be achieved in practically no time and at very little cost. They also make a beautiful little gift for a birthday, baby shower etc.

Balloon Fringe Tassel Garland

Fringe Festooning comes in 5m lengths (more than enough for 5 balloons if you use just one strand), combine a couple of colours and strands for best effect. Simply attach the garlands to the tied base of the balloon with a little piece of glitter tape. These garlands are stronger than you might think but if you are using with Big Balloons take the measure of add a piece of strong ribbon along with the garlands as the piece to be held/tethered to avoid losing your beautiful balloon!

Our Fringe Garland comes in eleven gorgeous shades, have fun creating your own balloon-tails.

Friday Fiesta – Pastels

I have been inspired this week by the fabulous book by Selina Lake Pretty Pastel Style. The book reveals how pastels are making a revival, and not the sugary, saccharine pastels of old but a new versatile breed of pastel shades on ‘the cool side of sweet’.
From sultry sophistiated shades to funky neons I adore them all. Pastel hues are particularly wonderful to use for parties and celebrations, to be honest when styling a party you can get creative and add just a touch of pastel for a pop of colour, or like me follow the ethos ‘more is more’!

Baking Cup Light Garland DIY

I have had many enquiries as to where I get the pretty strings of lights that adorn my home which I change the colours of according to the season or occasion. One lady thought that I collected tiny vintage lamp shades and strung them together!

Baking Cups Fairy Lights DIY
These strings of pretty lights are so easy to construct, no glue or tape is required all you need are baking cups and a string of fairy lights (my fairy lights cost just 99p)
You could use a selection of baking cups or try this with paper party cups. Carefully cut a cross in the bottom of the cup and pop a light through the hole. The light should stay inside quite snuggly without the need of any glue or tape.
Within less than 5 minutes you will have a pretty string of lights!
