A beautiful summery lemon party found at All that is Sweet in Life! A nice party for girlfriends or would make a gorgeous Mother's Day party for your friends, bridal shower or birthday.
Lemon curd favors!
As a major fan of Goodwill, I love this idea! Two ladies found pillowcases at Goodwill and other thrift stores and repurposed them into napkins. Each had a tag that featured the word lemon in various languages.
Check out more photos of this lemony fresh party here.
Whiffle ball bouquet! I love it because it's a bit thicker and more ruffle edged than a pom. Whiffle balls and coffee filters found at the dollar store! Find the full tutorial on the whiffle ball bouquet at Me Making Do
photo credit: Inspired Ideas Turn an average rice crispy treat into something fun and colorful! Use the normal rice crispy treat recipe and throw in food coloring of your choice. Cover your hands in greased sandwich bags and shape the dessert into numbers.
This would also be a great idea for monograms or create an easy dessert in your team colors for tailgating!
Even though July 4th is Sunday, there is plenty of time to create an easy way to welcome your guests.
These streamers create gentle movement in the breeze and are made from items found at the Dollar Tree.
The poles are actually bamboo stakes normally used in gardening. These are green 5 ft stakes and are $1 for a package of 6 or so. Spray paint those the color of your choice. I used white.
Right now, most Dollar Tree stores have rolls of satin ribbon in stock. I chose red, white and blue. $1 per roll. Cut long pieces of each color and hot glue one end to the top of the stake.
These can be placed anywhere... line your driveway, place them at the corners of your patio, stand them up in sand filled pots on your porch, etc. Use any colors you want for any occasion. These would be great for a bridal shower, graduation in school colors or child's birthday in primary colors!
One sprig of beautiful blooms from an outside bush held by a chemistry beaker. Yes, that's a pyrex chemistry beaker. It's simple and you can create a pop of color easily as it only holds a couple stems.
Pyrex beaker at Goodwill. $.49. Another example of thinking outside of the box when you shop.
Next week, I'll show the perfect Fourth of July use for inexpensive goodwill mason jars.
and many many more you can see on Facebook. I'm thrilled to have met Lenneke. She will be making a rather LARGE cake for a university gala I'm working on for next year. I can't wait!
Anyway, something I love just as much as cake art are cake JEWELS. Edible cake jewels.
See these? EDIBLE! Edible jewels to glam up your treats! Fancy Flours has them in all different colors and sizes. Perfect for a fancy sweet sixteen or princess party. Sex and the City cupcakes, etc. Diamond jewels for New Year's Eve! Endless possibilities! Check out all the beauties at Fancy Flours.
I've talked many times about backdrops. They are an easy way to tie in your colors and tie in your theme as well as cover up space that may not fit in. I mean, not everyone has a blank slate to transform for every event they throw, right?
Diane of the blog In My Own Style shows a super easy way to create wall art... or.... backdrops.
Made with canvas, mod podge and tissue paper! Yep, tissue paper.
A great idea for parties or making great artwork for any room of your home!
Sidenote: This is a wonderful inexpensive way to create holiday art. Make a few large pieces in holiday themes to change out throughout the year?
