We are loving all these fresh, fun and easy ways to throw a party for a recent grad, from Big Dot Of Happiness. A must see and do are those fabulous “Caps Off” Push Pop Favors that they displayed in 4″ white cube blumeboxes with cakepop inserts.

This is such a great template to be able to apply to whatever school color you are after. Check out Big Dot Of Happiness for all their graduation themed printables.

Whatever you plan to give your DAD (a bottled beverage, BBQ tools, clothing…) this is one cute way to package it all up.

In a few super quick and easy steps you can make one of these up in time for Father’s Day, this Sunday!

1)Select the size and color blumebox you desire (we used an 8″ kraft blumebox) and pattern of paper ribbon.

2)Cut down paper ribbon to form the shape of a tie and adhere to the blumebox with double stick tape.

3) Fill with gift contents and tissue or other decorative wrap.

This of course would make for some super cute centerpieces at a Tie Party.

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.
