blumebud brunch

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.

Shop our blumebud collection of fabulous colors that are perfect for any occasion!

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!

4th-of-July-Licorice-Display

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!

make-a-woodland-inspired-holiday-table-decoration-with-blumebox

I love me some woodland inspiration, so it was a no brainer that my holiday table would be adorned with elements of this rustic theme. Good thing I was not tardy with my holiday table as I am with posting this idea! But better late than never!!

The centerpieces were very simple but placed on top of kraft paper runner, plates and my family of fawns, this table was so awesome in the most simplistic and mid century modern way.

Christmas-2013--Cookie-stand-with-washi-tape

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.

Show us what you come up with this holiday season by sharing ideas on our Facebook page and Pinterest boards.

How-to-Make-a-Mini-Mouse-Centerpiece

Mini Mouse is a favorite of wee girls, and having a Mini Mouse themed birthday party tops the popularity chart! And for all those boys who adore Mickey Mouse, just change up the color palette to red, blue, green or yellow!

We have a fun, easy and kid friendly make-your-own Mini Mouse centerpiece this week that is sure to make some little girls smile! It sure made ours flash her pearlies.

Shopping List:

1) 2 x smaller Styrofoam balls (for ears)

2) 1 x larger Styrofoam ball (for head)

3) 2 x toothpicks

4) 1 x craft stick, skewer, or baking stick

5) washi tape

6) 4″ cube blumebox

7) 10 x pink gerbera daisies

How To Make It:

1) Get your children to help!

2) Paint all three Styrofoam balls with black paint. Let dry.

3) Decorate 4″ blumebox cube with washi tape. We created two lines.

4) Push toothpicks half way into the two smaller (ears) Styrofoam balls.

5) Place one ear into the left of the larger Styrofoam ball (the head) and then place the second ear into the right side of the head. Wrap a pink ribbon around one ear.

6) To decorate the stick that holds Mini’s head, roll out a strip of washi tape long enough to wrap length of craft stick, skewer or baking stick. Then wrap.

7) Peirce base of mini’s head with decorative stick. Presto…you have a 3-d mini mouse silhouette ready to go inside your floral arrangement.

8) Arrange pink gerberas inside 4″ cube blumebox and then insert your mini mouse silhouette on a stick into arrangement. This could also work great as a candy arrangement. Instead of florals fill the blumebox with candy and poke mini mouse on a stick through center of candy.
