Lunch Sack Honeycomb Fan Hack

Every week for the next 4 weeks we are focusing on two color chapters of our new journal, My Life In Color. This week it’s red and pink!

We’re always looking for easy party decor ideas that add a little extra pizazz without draining your wallet or keeping you up until the wee hours of the morning. This Lunch Sack Honeycomb Fan Hack is a riff off of traditional honeycomb fans you can buy at the party store. However, these are MUCH cheaper and much more fun with all the different shape variations you can create! Not to mention the options with spray paint–the sky’s the limit! Each Lunch Sack Honeycomb Fan uses 6-10 paper bags, in whatever size you’d like, and comes together really quickly. Glue, scissors, string, and spray paint are the only other materials needed to create a stunning display! Hang above a party table like we’ve done here, or against a wall as a background. Along a banister would be stunning too! You can customize these for any holiday by using specific paint colors.

DIY Confetti Tablecloth

DIY Confetti Tablecloth

To celebrate the launch of our new collection of rainbow journals, we are focusing on a different color combination each week of the month. This week it’s all things RAINBOW. You’ll be seeing a rainbow project, round up, and This Girl. 

Who doesn’t love confetti? I’m convinced that confetti, rainbow sprinkles, glitter, and funfetti flavored anything make the world a better place. There’s just something magical about those rainbow colored flecks. They’re also responsible for making everything messier–an unfortunate truth. This DIY Confetti Tablecloth screams fun but without the cleanup! Small geometric shapes are cut from iron-on vinyl and ironed directly onto a tablecloth for permanent confetti! We chose a lovely Aquamarine linen tablecloth with white pom trim from Magic Linen and they have a variety of beautiful shades to choose from. But you can use any tablecloth you like! This will become your go-to tablecloth for birthdays and special occasions and you won’t find any rogue confetti hiding in the corners weeks later!

Let’s get ready to party with this DIY Confetti Tablecloth!

Printable Paper Fruit Decorations

Printable Paper Fruit Decorations

A few weeks ago when we were in New York for a fun event with Joann, we were doing a little sightseeing on our way to a meeting. We walked into Eataly to be greeted by a ceiling full of paper fruit! It was such a delightful display and we couldn’t get it out of our heads. So naturally, we had to create a Lars rendition so you can enjoy these Printable Paper Fruit Decorations as well! They make an adorable backdrop, look great clustered on a table and are so sweet hung up. Simply print out the templates, cut, fold and glue! What would you do with these fruity decorations?

Alexander Girard Inspired Baby Shower

Alexander Girard Inspired Baby Shower

We celebrated my sister, Caitlin, and her soon-to-be baby in June with an Alexander Girard themed shower. My sister has always marched to the beat of her own drum and has been a major source of inspiration to me. Thus, I knew we couldn’t do a simple, common baby shower theme. No, no! We took a cue from one of her favorite designers, mid-century master, Alexander Girard (read more about him here). My mom, sister, and I all love going to town with a theme so we all added something from wherever we live. Up here in Utah, our team created the simple shape garlands in Girard colors, Mom created baby blocks out of boxes, and Caitlin created cardboard puppets based on Girard’s dolls.

I provided the downloadable printables of the baby block invitation featured in this post, and I’m providing the rest of the design elements in this post. You can also download the invitation components HERE and HERE. We made some cupcake toppers (see above), a printable gift list, and stickers, which we added to the envelopes.

Watermelon Round-Up

Watermelon crafts

There are few things more refreshing than watermelon on a hot day, and lately, every day seems to require more watermelon than the day before (it’s been so hot here!). Here at Lars, we’ve loved seeing so many watermelon products, DIY’s, and recipes floating around the web this summer, and turns out, we are not the only ones who are obsessed. Apparently, August 3rd is national watermelon day, and we’re all about celebrating random holidays. So we created a Watermelon Round-Up of our favorite watermelon-inspired products, recipes, and projects to help you celebrate! Read on →
