bird place cardsbird place cards 2

My roommate and I held our first entertaining party last weekend. Since our dining table isn’t large enough to seat all 4 of our guests, we used the table as a buffet table and set chairs around our coffee table. Without anywhere to put place cards, I decided to use ornamental birds clipped to halved toilet rolls and the guest’s name painted on. They were such a hit with our guests!


holiday gift wrappingIt’s that magical time of year again! And what’s better than buying presents for my loved ones? Wrapping them! I’m the office hoarder, you should see the piles and piles of boxes, crinkles, tissue paper and ribbons under my desk I couldn’t bear to throw away. Even a boring white box can be transformed with just a sharpie and a simple pattern.

If you haven’t been hoarding all year like me, not to worry! I popped by Target last weekend and was so impressed by their party section. They had so many cute boxes, felt flower embellishments and ribbons for a dollar!

Happy wrapping!
