When I was younger, I didn't understand the fascination with giving or receiving flowers. Yes, I know, shocking! I thought it was a real waste since the gift wouldn't last long. Now I am a lot less pragmatic and totally adore giving and receiving them (you reading, husband?). But these crepe paper flowers still appeal to my practical side as they would make perfect memento of any special day or occasion!
I made these pretty blooms for my recent wedding shoot for HGTV. But they are good for all occasions!

I recently worked on another super fun shoot for HGTV (hope to share details soon!) and had some leftover materials and a burst of inspiration (not to mention a bunch of glass yogurt pots I had been collection for yonks...). This is how these pink, glittered, candle cuties came to be.
They'd be perfect for those lazy summer evenings - Imagine how they'd flicker and glisten on your tabletops or patios. Pretty picture, right?! :)
Super easy to make too (I used melt and pour wax!). Get the full crafty tutorial below.

Remember this CD candle holder I posted here? Well, I thought the same idea would make for a super fun, mega quick craft. And hence the perfect last minute father's day gift!
But instead of a candle holder (not sure dads are into scented candles much...), I made a personalized photo cube that dad can use to store all his bits and bobs, or display proudly on his desk or bed-side table!
What's not to like? It's handmade with love, super quick to make, involves up-cycling unwanted items (so it's also inexpensive), and oozes bespoke charm?! ;)

As promised in my toadstool marshmallow post last week, I'm sharing today the tutorial on how I made my Rustic Log Cake Stand.
These babies brand new, can set you back at least $30, so making your own is waaaay more cost-effective and of course, totally more fun too! ;)
They are ideal for a woodland birthday party (think Red Riding Hood, Bambi, Vintage Snow White, Camping Party...) but also perfect for those rustic, shabby chic bridal showers and weddings!

Remember the giant paper roses I made for this shoot? Well, these area smaller version of the roses but using crepe paper instead and making them into a beautiful bouquet for Mother's Day (weddings too or any other occasion you fancy!)
They are so pretty, long-lasting, and easy to make, and are the perfect gift or craft for kids to get involved in (with a little supervision of course, as there are wire cutters involved!).
My daughter LOVED crafting with me on the weekend; and as a proud mom (not ashamed to say) I just couldn't help myself and took some extra shots of my precious, pretty in pink baby - One of my most perfect creations! ♥

As always, I love finding novel ways to use party printables, and this is how these little Easter Bunny Push-up Pops came about.
I had some printable bunny cupcake wrappers left from my Easter Kids' Egg Hunt Party photo shoot, and couldn't bear to throw them out, so I got my trusty puncher out and few supplies, and voila - Easy and super quick Easter Push-Pop Centerpiece that doubles as party favors holder.
Life doesn't get sweet that that for a party nerd like me! :)
