Chanel Inspired Tablescape

Chanel Inspired TablescapeMany of you probably remember the Chanel Couture Spring 2015 Runway show. I talked all about it HERE because I was so mesmerized by it! Never mind the actual clothing, all of which was impeccable, by the way, I was so captured by the magical paper garden. It began white, but once watered by the “gardener,” bloomed into beautiful watercolored flowers. I’m telling you, it was magical! I have wanted to create something in the same vein ever since I saw the show. We decided to design a simple tablescape inspired by the white and watercolored paper garden used in the Chanel show. Complete with gorgeous dinnerware, glasses, and flatware, this Chanel inspired tablescape is a beautiful table for a baby or bridal shower or just a lovely dinner party with friends. The watercolor flowers are a whimsical touch to any setting, and really fun to create!

Tropical Leaf and Hibiscus Backdrop

If you have any memories associated with crafting throughout your life, chances are that Fiskars scissors have been involved. Known for the Original Orange-handled Scissors, their products are the cream of the crop for crafting and have been for as long as I can remember. This month, we’ve partnered with Fiskars to celebrate the 50th Birthday of their iconic orange-handled scissors! Quite the milestone! Inspired by the vibrant orange color of their products, we created bright orange hibiscus flowers out of crepe paper showcased on a deep green tropical leaf backdrop. This is the ultimate party backdrop achieved with just paper and a trusty pair of Fiskars orange-handled scissors. A simple project with a big impact, our favorite kind. You should probably wear a bright orange tropical dress just to pay your proper respects as well 😉

Crepe Paper Peony Wall

DIY Crepe Paper Peony tutorial

We were tickled pink to be able to create the backdrop decor for fashion influencers Amber Fillerup and Rachel Parcell and their pop-up shop a few weeks ago. They were both celebrating recent releases in their companies and wanted to throw a party to celebrate! We created a paper peony wall installation to use as a photo booth backdrop during the event. We were making crepe paper peonies for days, to make sure we’d have enough to cover the entire wall with a luscious garden! We’ve never been through so much crepe paper before! But let me tell you, it looked phenomenal! Such a showpiece that would look great for a wedding or special occasion.

We’d strongly encourage you to enlist the help of some faithful friends to help put together this amount of paper peonies, as it does take some time. However, if you’re just planning on making a few, this is a simple craft with a beautiful result! Now you can enjoy peonies long after their short-lived season has passed!

Tea Stained Flower Garland

Tea stained Flower Garland

Did you ever have to distress or age an assignment in elementary school or junior high? Like burning the edges or tea staining the paper of a letter to make it look old? I remember my mom helping be brew a pot of tea for a history assignment and being fascinated by the effect. Well, we’re paying homage to those grade school assignments with this tea stained flower garland! We cut out loads of paper daisies with our die-cut machine and then painted them with tea bags to give the flowers some warmth. The result was better than we imagined, with various shades of honey-colored daisies! The best part about it? You only need regular old printer paper, a few bags of tea, and some twine. Things we all have in our cupboards. And things that are CHEAP. Beautiful in an all white setting with some neutral accents, this tea stained flower garland would be perfect for a wedding. No upcoming nuptials? Imagine a canopy of these flowers draped over a bed. Can you say dreamy?
