Snacks on Display

Another Monday. So sad, we know, but we have a colorful post to brighten your day! Here is a super easy and cheap little craft for adorable snack holders for your next party, girls’ night, picnic in the park… or whenever the need for cut snacking strikes!

You’ll need: paper plates, decorative (or plain Scotch) tape, extra ribbons/strings- anything you want to decorate the container with), a ruler, scissors (regular and/or decorative), paper clips, and a pencil.

Step 1: Trim the edge of the plate with either regular or decorative scissors.

Step 2: Turn the plate upside down and draw this grid to create a square in the middle of the plate.

Step 3: Cut a slit in every other line around the square like this:

Step 4: Fold the sides up around the square, leaving it as the base of the box.

Step 5: Fold the excess part of each flap around to the next side and paper clip it like so:

Step 6: Tape the sides down, remove the paper clips, and decorate however you’d like. Fill with snacks and enjoy!

It’s Your Lucky {Mon}Day!

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…

A Day Frilled with Love

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:Image

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!Image

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

Thanks for stopping by!
