Hello Crafters! It’s Erin, back again from The Blue Eyed Dove. My sister is getting married this June and we are in full wedding festivity mode! Earlier this month we threw a bridal shower for her and decided to go with a bubbly, sparkly and floral theme. One of the highlights of this party was our Mimosa Bar. {That is of course where the “bubbly” part of the theme comes from!} We decked the bar out with a sequins gold table cloth and made several tissue paper flowers to create a focal point above the bar. It turned out great, and was very easy. Today, I thought I’d share this simple tissue paper flower tutorial with you. [Read more…]

Easy Onesies Baby Shower Banner

Onesies Banner Header

Hi Crafters! It’s Erin, back this month from The Blue Eyed Dove. And this month I have a little confession to make…when it comes to parties I am obsessed with making easy banners.

“For a moment Anne’s heart fluttered queerly and for the first time her eyes faltered under Gilbert’s gaze and a rosy flush stained the paleness of her face. It was as if a veil that had hung before her inner consciousness had been lifted, giving to her view a revelation of unsuspected feelings and realities. Perhaps, after all, romance did not come into one’s life with pomp and blare, like a gay knight riding down; perhaps it crept to one’s side like an old friend through quiet ways; perhaps it revealed itself in seeming prose, until some sudden shaft of illumination flung athwart its pages betrayed the rhythm and the music, perhaps. . . perhaps. . .love unfolded naturally out of a beautiful friendship, as a golden-hearted rose slipping from its green sheath. ”
