    DIY Fabric Invitation

    I am so giddy over this sweet little fabric invitation. Discovered via The Wedding Chicks, this clever little tutorial was designed by Paper and Thread Studios, and is super quick and easy. Oh, and it is ridiculously cute!Here is what you will need: fabric with a large print that you can easily cut out, Elmer's glue, fabric scissors, and A7 flat cards that you can purchase online or at most craft stores.
    Design your invite in any word program, making sure to justify all text to the right. Next, cut out a large graphic from your pretty fabric. Gently rub glue on the back of the fabric and press into place on your invite. And there you have it, a simple, affordable and adorable invite perfect for bridal showers or baby showers!{images via the Wedding Chicks}

    DIY Mini Chocolate Bar Favours

    This tutorial outlines a delightful way to transform simple mini chocolate bars into pretty pastel party favors perfect for bridal showers, birthday parties, or weddings. Simply wrap vintage wallpaper scraps, or pretty scrapbook paper around mini Hershey chocolate bars, secure with double-sided tape and accent with glitter. Perfectly lovely and easy as can be!

    Chalkboard Tags

    I sorta think these chalkboard tags are the coolest thing I have seen in awhile. How perfect are they for place cards, favor tags, and more?

  • {Martha Stewart} Heart Cupcakes

    I love this sweet and simple idea for dolling up a cupcake. Use a heart shaped cookie cutter to cut little hearts out of brownies. Place them on top of cupcakes for a perfect Valentine treat.

  • Peach + Gray = A perfect marriage

    I have a new and very unexpected color crush. We already know gray is hot hot hot. But, who knew it would pair so brilliantly with peach? Use a pale gray and soft peaches for a perfect vintage, romantic feel.
