Royal Wedding Floral Tea Party

Royal Wedding Floral Tea Party

Sometimes an occasion just calls for a tea party. And who does tea parties better than the Royals? We were inspired by the lush florals that adorned Prince George’s Chapel on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding day. Were you able to catch a glimpse? The arches were covered with white roses and plenty of foliage to create an almost ethereal look. We pared down the look so it would be appropriate for an elegant centerpiece. We used a mixture of tissue paper, crepe paper, and cardstock to get a really lovely mix of textures. Of course, we have to include our Royal Wedding mugs to complete the look!

Birthday Bucket List

Birthday Bucket List

Birthdays are one of our favorite things to celebrate and we celebrate an awful lot of them during the summer! No complaints here. A member of the Lars team had a great idea to seek out some of her friend’s favorite things so she could add them to her own bucket list! She wanted to know their favorite book, Netflix show, flower, restaurant, etc.. so she could try them out within the next year. What a sweet idea, right?! So we made a printable template that you can use to hand or send to friends to fill out and return. You’ll end up with loads of new suggestions, plenty to keep you busy with for the next 12 months! What a wonderful birthday present, right? We’re thinking of making this a tradition! Just alter the questions, (or keep them the same) and send them out year after year.

Bandana Berry Baskets

Bandana Berry Baskets

Fourth of July is in one week! What are your plans? I’m spending time with family and soaking up the sun. If you’re enjoying the holiday with company, we’ve got the perfect gift to send your guests home with. These Bandana Berry Baskets are seasonal and patriotic, but not overly so! Last year we posted a tutorial on how to bleach bandanas to give them a beautiful faded look. Check it out if you missed it! We’ve chosen a patriotic palette of those bandanas to wrap up fresh berry filled baskets. We’ve even created a coordinating bandana inspired tag to accompany the gifts! So share the fruits of the season with bandana berry baskets!

See how to wrap your basket properly with a bandana!

DIY Paper Tube Chandeliers

DIY Paper Tube ChandeliersAs soon as I laid eyes on the ‘Cocktail Lights’ of Hanna Anonen I fell in love immediately. The colors and playful shapes were so stunning. I needed to make a DIY version. These DIY Paper Tube Chandeliers are a fun way to bring color into a space. I love the impact a lovely chandelier can have on a room. These chandeliers are a fun alternative to basic desk lamps and don’t require any side tables! You can customize the color palette to whatever you desire, limited only by the paper variety at your nearest craft store. Paper, embroidery hoops, and twine are all you need for this DIY. You can easily install a hanging light bulb in the center of the tubes. On the other hand, they’re perfect without the light to serve purely as decor!

Royal Wedding Inspired Bouquet

Royal Wedding Inspired Bouquet

Wedding season is in full swing! Yes, we’re still riding that royal wedding wave and we’re not ashamed (clearly!). The flowers had to be my favorite part of the royal wedding of Harry and Meghan. Those flower arches were absolutely dreamy outside of St. George’s Chapel. We loved the lush and overflowing greenery and the all-white color palette. Meghan’s bouquet, in contrast, was much more restrained. She held a very petite and lovely bouquet of flowers in an all-white color scheme. Though I tend to agree with the ‘more is more’ mantra, the simplicity of this bouquet is so stunning! We researched each flower in her bouquet in order to create a very similar paper replica. Did you know it’s tradition for royals to include a sprig of Myrtle in their bouquets? It represents love and started with the wedding of the eldest daughter of Prince Albert and Queen Victoria.
