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 →

Oversized Paper Chain Mural

Oversized Paper Chain BackdropRemember our Original Paper Chain Wall Hanging? You guys loved it! And so did we quite honestly. I love seeing you recreate the project and display it in your own homes. That’s what Lars is all about! This Oversized Paper Chain Mural is our fresh take on the idea. It’s perfect for party backdrops but also great if you’re looking for an art piece for a larger space. Another plus? This is a great TV project. In other words: Plop yourself in front of a good show and mindlessly make paper chains and before you know it, you’re done! Voila!

Sunshine Piñata to Make you Smile!

Ever since having Jasper, my eyes have been opened to the magical world of children’s clothing. Everything is cuter when it’s pint-sized! I’m sure many of you with kids are familiar with Gymboree, so you’ll be thrilled to know they are giving their brand a revamp! The clothing styles are modern and fresh while still maintaining the comfort and sensibility kids need. The clothing is so sweet and is sure to make you and your littles smile! We were so inspired by the colorful, fun pieces that we designed a party scene around the new line, complete with an Alexander Girard-inspired Sunshine Piñata!

Take a peek at the collection and download the templates to make your own sunshine piñata!
