Operation-Shower-Love-Is-In-The-Air

Operation Shower has done it again, with the help from creative guru The TomKat Studio, in transforming tables and event space for this “Love is In The Air” event.

There are so many gorgeous details to this chocolate brown, khaki, and white party that would be just as perfect for a Vintage Anniversary party or Valentine’s Day party. We especially oohed and awed over that mouth watering dessert table and hot air balloon centerpiece constructed out of a blumebox! Catering to the vintage theme, each table was a collection of unique and different items that all tied in with one another perfectly!

Now, I have had my share of attempts in making hot air balloons out of blumeboxes, none of which you will find on our Ideas In Blume Blog, because they were just that…attempts! The key to this successful DIY to others I have tried, is the paper lantern. The rigid make up of the lantern allows for easier construction, than that of a balloon.

Check out this How To Make Your Own Hot Air Balloon Centerpiece

What you will need: 1x blumebox (4″ or 5.5″ cube will due), 4 x dowels (12 “long), 4x satin bows, satin ribbon, decals, 1 x paper lantern (6″-8″)

1)Open blumebox till bottom locks. You will not need plastic bag for this, so either fold and place on the bottom of blumebox or do not use at all.

2)Wrap blumebox with satin ribbon to suit. If using, adhere decal on top of the ribbon.

3)Hot glue a bow to each dowel.

4)Hot glue the bottom part of dowels and attach to the inside corners of the blumebox.

5) Place/rest paper lantern between the four glued dowels. Bows should be on outside of dowel.

Operation-Shower-B-is-for-Baby

Operation Shower is at it again showering lovely expecting moms who’s husbands/partners serve in the military and have been deployed or are soon to be deployed. The love, support and celebration that Operation Shower brings to the families of those expecting is something that blumebox is honored to be part of.

The “B” is for Baby theme was carried out throughout the event, with various different letters, spinning a super cute take to each table. There was a “P” is for Play (red), “D” is for Diapers (green), “F” is for Feeding (blue), “G” is for Gifts . . . Each table started with the same table cloth and then took on different different color pallets and designs to suit the category.

We particularly loved the different ways in which they incorporated our recyclable cardboard blumeboxes to each table.

Keep showering very special people Operation Shower!

Golf-Themed-Baby-Shower-Operation-Shower

Operation Shower teamed up with Birdies for the Brave® and the PGA TOUR to host a baby shower for 41 military moms-to-be and blumebox was proud to be included in such a special organization.

“For military wives who are expecting a baby and whose spouses are deployed or soon to be deployed, the impending arrival of a child can be both exciting and stressful,” said Operation Shower Founder and Chief Shower Officer LeAnn Morrissey. “Operation Shower was created specifically because typically military moms are the ones who hold it all together at home. Without their spouses by their side, deployed to another part of the world, these moms deserve our support, our thanks, our love and an opportunity to celebrate together.”

There are so many great details at this golf inspired baby shower, most of which could easily be used for any golf themed party or father’s day brunch table!

Bling-Sticks-Placec-Card-Holders

We spotted this feature by Tonya Blackstone from Soiree Events over on Hostess With The Mostess, earlier in the week highlighting the hottest trend happening in the party planning world!

Bling sticks are sparkly bake sticks that are intended for cake pops and other delectable sweets on a stick, but Tonya set forth to find many more uses for these glittering gems! They can be purchased online from Made by a Princess.

We of course were smitten to see her use the bling sticks as name cards that were housed inside our black and white chain link blumebud place card holders for one star studded Pap-a-Razzi Baby Shower she hosted.

make-your-own-layered-ribbon-vases

This layered ribbon tutorial was inspired by a DIY on how to make your own favor boxes, demonstrated by Tulle Box Design on the fabulous, Wedding Chicks site.

When we spotted these clever ideas applied to a basic white favor box, we knew we had to try it on a cardboard blumebox.  While any size blumebox would work, we used a 4″ white cube blumebox.

With just four supplies needed and super simple instructions, you can make a layered ribbon box in no time.

1) Apply two strips of double stick tape to each side of the blumebox (8 strips total).

2) Measure out one strip of ribbon that covers the circumference of the box and cut. Proceed to cut the necessary amount of ribbon needed to cover the entire blumebox.

3) Starting from the base or bottom of the blumebox, proceed to stick ribbon to the double stick tape. Extra tape might be needed on the ends of the cut ribbon to ensure a clean join.

After finishing the light pink satin ribbon vase, we wanted to try a version with some light and bright pink ruffled ribbon we had in stock. By adding the cake pop/lollipop insert, the layered ribbon container transformed into a pretty awesome pink ombre cake pop display box.

Coming soon…tissue paper case!
