In honour of this truly wonderful tradition making a comeback into weddings and everyday life I’ve created a set of 3 vintage-inspired placemats – each a sweet and simple backdrop for your finest cake plates and tea sets. While I’ve used crisp white paper for my placemats these vintage illustrations will also look great on other soft hues like pale blue, blush and ivory. And if you’re feeling really crafty why not print these in reverse onto transfer paper and iron them onto plain cloth placemats!

Zig Zag Accordion Streamers DIY

My mom taught me how to make these and they are about the easiest party decor there is. All you need is colored paper and pair of scissors. Really, its that easy. Instructions Below.

Step 3: Turn the paper over and make cuts (but not all the way through) half way between the 2″ sections. I love these streamers because they don’t have to be perfect, my cuts are crooked and uneven but they still turned out great. photos by Paul Ferney for Oh Happy Day Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.

DIY Project #15: Bride to Be Bangle Game

Where I live you often see a gaggle of girls out on the town on Saturday night with an embarrassed Bride-To-Be in tow wearing a giant veil or a big sash announcing her soon to be wed status on it. I knew my super stylish friend would rather die than be seen wearing tulle in public, so I had to think of a way to get her to wear something for the night to make her feel special, but also feel comfortable.
