Party Decorating – Party Season 2014

Party Decorating – Party Season 2014

It’s party season!

Last weekend was my brother’s high school graduation party, ¬†and I helped my mom and sister with some of the decorating. Mom went with a golf theme, and though we all prefer to forego fussiness in favor of simplicity, we thought the results turned out very well. My primary contribution was the “2014” flags, which I made with scrapbook paper, my Cricut Mini, and some dowel rods. They added a lot to the room!

Another recent party I attended was a friend’s baby shower (this is the same mom for whom I made the peach blanket). I was not in charge of planning the party, but I did contribute this pennant banner, which I made in a similar manner as the flags, but used paper shopping bags for the base paper and ribbon and a hole puncher to string the paper triangles together. I think it turned out to be adorable! Click on the photo if you want to zoom in.

Maybe you can use some of these ideas for your next grad party or shower. Or, if you are into simplicity like my mom, I’ll make the things for you! Email me at calicojoy@gmail.com if you’re interested, and we can work out the details.
