I participated in a Michaels paper crafting party challenge using their expanded assortment of Recollections™ Craft It™
party decor items. I found some really cute paper doilies in coral and white, some fun straws and some other bits and pieces like mini-clothes pins and some fun products with stickies already on the back.
I first made some doily flowers by layering two sizes of doilies on each other and then adding a cute gold, sticky back pinwheel in the center.
It looks so cute with the contrasting colors!
I also decided to use some gold letters on the doilies, stuck in straws to make table top bouquets. I put them in milk bottle shaped glasses, and stuck some of the sticky back flowers on the end of the straws.
It was also a great place to keep the extra straws.
I liked the silver polka dot straws, it went well with my polka dot tablecloth I bought a few years ago.
I added these cute DIY doily tassels with mini-clothes pins I’ll show you how to make in another post.
I think it makes for a very cute party and very easy to throw together. I just stacked some cake plates for height.
You can out all of your sweets on there and still have plenty of room on the table.
I am a bit in love with this color scheme. There is something about gold, coral and white that looks so pretty and fresh. It was a fun challenge to try something different. I don’t do a ton of party settings, but I really enjoyed it. Maybe I need to do some more.I do have another birthday coming up. Maybe I need a paper crafting party. 🙂
I did enjoy doing this one. But then again, anything with mini-bundt cakes is fabulous in my books.
