Confetti Confections

Confetti System has been busy creating its whimsical landscapes for parties and store windows. Streamers, pinatas, glitter; nothing is off limits.

Happily for Chad our tissue paper budget isn’t up to par with those guys or our living room might start to look like a paper-palooza. In the meantime I’ll take a few tips from these DIYsters. Even with the holidays almost over you are sure to need a banner or two for all of the spring wedding and baby showers!


Project Wedding has these colorful mobiles; have sewing machine, will party. Instructions are here.

Wedding Chicks highlighted this garland idea, no instructions, but I’m sure you can get creative with it!

One Lovely Day featured this DIY by City Cradle Design, using leftover wrapping paper.

A few months ago we were in the market for some new furniture. It can be awkward for four adults to sit on one couch, never mind having a party, and so we started a search for more seating. Which is around the time that I found this chair from Urban.

As fate would have it we went to the rink and found an awesome yellow leather love seat  to cushion guests bottoms. So, instead the indigo slipper chair served as inspiration for some much needed couch adornments. One McCall’s pattern, one Thursday night, and some orange cording later and I am one happy girl.

What’s your favorite piece of furniture?
