When is the last time you used place cards? Probably donkey years, right?
Well a month or so ago, I decided to turn breakfast into a dressed up affair and set the table with some fun items I have been gathering from Oh Joy!, who recently partnered with Target, to create some awesome sherbert hued party supplies.
To seat my wee guests, I busted out a package of gold damask blumebuds. Sold by the 6-pack the blumebuds are supplied flat and can be assembled with the solid color facing out or the patterned facing out. A fun way to add some pizazz to any table! Next, I wrote the names of each of our diners on the tag that comes included, added a flower and water to the tube that is part of the blumebud and we had some pretty cute place card holders that doubled as a bud vase!
Super simple and makes such an impact! My girls felt so special and loved the idea of having their own place to sit.
Clever tip from blumebox customer: “I recently recently used the blumebuds at a breakfast I was hosting to call out the assortment of items on our food table! I was able to identify Gluten Free, nut free items very easily!
We have a super easy do it yourself today just in time for the 4th of July. We discovered a fun way to add pattern and color to candy!
Separate the paper ribbon so that it is in strips, set stack of candy (in this case we used our favorite, red vines) on top of ribbon and begin rolling paper around candy and seal off with tape, washi tape or stickers.
And presto, you have one fire cracking display cute enough for any 4th of July party!
Hosting a holiday party or heading to a cookie exchange . . . We have a cute holiday project that can be made quickly with a blumebox and washi tape.
Any size blumebox will suit. Pictured here is an 8″ cream blumebox. Proceed with wrapping the blumebox with washi tape in the desired pattern. Keep it simple (as shown to the right) or take it up a notch and have some fun with washi and make a tree out of it! We saw this idea over on Confetti Sunshine who had a post on handmade ornaments, and we thought it could work really well on a blumebox.

October already? Really? Well that of coarse brings us closer to our favorite holiday, HALLOWEEN!
We love this easy and festive do-it-yourself candy corn boxes made from 4″ cube, blumeboxes, 6″ blumeboxes and 8″ blumeboxes. With some spray paint you can transform a blumebox into candy corn table centerpieces in no time.
Make sure all spraying is done in a well ventilated area. We highly recommend outside if possible. Lay out some newspaper and start spraying. We found it easiest to have the blumebox standing on the newsprint to spray. Pick up the box just after spraying to avoid the box from sticking to the newsprint. Let dry and then reapply. Continue on to next color till you have yourself a collection of pretty cool candy corn striped boxes to hold all those treats!
Mix up the colors on this and you could have a fun and easy way to create ombre centerpieces in the color of your choice.

Calling all mermaids…We have a fun tutorial that is sure to make those tails splash!
With oceanic mania hitting coast to coast we decided to try our hand in an ombre candy display, suitable for a dessert table or candy bar.
1) Start by punching out the circles from the metallic origami paper till you have a good collection of each color. We used three different hues of blue/green.
2) Starting at the base of the blumebox in the left corner, begin applying glue to dots and adhering to blumebox. Slightly overlap each dot, working across the box. Row by row till you hit the top.
3) Repeat onto the next panel of the blumebox till all four sides are covered and sparkling. Leave as is or adorn with a personalized label!
4) Fill push pops with gumballs or candy of choice. Place cake pop display inside a 4″ white blumebox cube. To insert push pops into our candy display box, use a blade to extend hole so that push pop sticks fit. Adjust push pops and fill base of stand with candy so that other holes are covered and all looks pretty.
