Do you ever just want to have a party? I woke up this morning in the mood to entertain. Sometimes, I just get the fever! At this point, I don’t even care who it’s for… I would throw a strangers birthday party if they let me plan it from start to finish. You can be sure there will be plenty of desserts and drinks, big balloons, and lots and lots of streamers.
I’m really excited to share with you the project I did today for our Thanksgiving table. I saw this post on Cupcakes and Cashmere last year, and remembered how much I loved the idea of pine cone place cards. I put my own little spin on it but here it goes!
I started with pine cones, raffia, and an amazing piece of card stock with raised polka dots. I drew circles onto the paper and then just free handed the names of my five guests with a fine point Sharpie. Then, I cut out the circles and punched a small hole at the top left of each.
I then threaded a piece of raffia through the hole and around the pine cone. It doesn’t really matter how long the raffia is, it depends on how many times you want to wrap it around. Then, tie in a bow and you’re finished! Here is my finished product. The entire Thanksgiving tablescape featuring these place cards will be here tomorrow!
Washi Tape could very well be the next big thing in the wedding/event world. Let me start from the beginning… Japanese Washi Tape is basically just multi-use adhesive tape. It’s taking over the DIY world with its seemingly endless uses. It’s perfect for taking plain jane vases, glasses, favors, pumpkins, candles, etc to a new level. Here are some really great examples of DIY Washi Tape projects.
