Wondering how to add some frill to your next holiday party? Our craft of the week was simple, decorative coasters (see our last post), so we made them St. Patrick’s Day-themed for today. Once we had a few fun coasters, we put together some St. Paddy’s party table settings:
We loved the look of scattered gold (chocolate) coins around our Paddy’s Plates. Also, name tags at place settings are the sweetest thing in the world and will make all of your guests feel special and remembered!
We used old bandanas and scarves to wrap up the silverware instead of napkins. SO adorable and unique, and everyone will just use the big stack of paper napkins in the middle of the table anyway.
Then we invited our friends to celebrate with us…

This Friday we decided to gather up some of our friends and all our Valentine’s Day treats to have a little party and photo shoot. We had so much fun and definitely celebrated the “togetherness” of the holiday (and ate a lot of candy).
Our friend, Corrine, donated these heart paper straws that could not be any cuter, and also the felt hearts draped over the record player in the picture above. (Both straws and felt hearts are from Target.)
Here is Corrine working hard (and being adorable) signing some Valentines:
We made these Valentines with paper made (from scratch) by our friend Hannah, and water color paints from our friend Andrea. What would we do without our talented art major friends? It really was a team effort!
Gina received this rose and some chocolates from another friend, Laurel. How sweet!

The record player is from Urban Outfitters and the Fleetwood Mac album is Rumours, one of Anna’s favorites!
