We’re sharing our last DIY to go with our summer entertaining series I did at last week’s Anthropologie event. No party is complete without a sweet (or sour!) and memorable invitation. They set the tone for the event! We created this printable lemon invitation as inspired by Anthropologie’s new 52 Conversations lemon print. As you might guess based on our logo, we’re suckers for a good lemon print and Anthro has a TON of lemon themes going on right now. Just print it off and send!
We rounded up some of our favorite lemon products from their site too. There are so many good ones right now!
Today we’re sharing our second custom project (see the first one here) from the Anthropologie Workshop Event! I fell in love with these Monogrammed Tumblers and decided they were a must on our tropical table spread. We thought they would serve as the perfect place settings with these monogrammed scalloped labels. Use the labels on your table or throw them around the tumbler and gift them off, either way, they are the perfect way to personalize the tumblers for the people you love most! They’d even make a wonderful gift–always love a monogram!
Last week I had the opportunity to host a workshop event at Anthropologie in Salt Lake City where I showed people how to style an outdoor soiree party for the summer months using some of their new products. It was the perfect combo of me being a big ‘ole fan of Anthro and my local peeps at the SLC location and my immense love of dinnerware. To go with the tropical themed collection, our team came up with three little custom projects that you can add to go with it that we’ll be sharing this week, starting with this paper leaf table runner inspired by their collection. It’s SO easy and cheap and adds a lot of pop!
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.
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!
