DIY Paper Flower Pistils

You might have mastered how to make my giant paper flowers already, but with an easy-peasy additional touch to the center, these paper flowers make a whole pretty difference.

What you need:
Paper, scissors, hot glue, stapler, cardboard.

How to make:

I made these giant paper flowers using my poppy flower DIY here. However, I chose pastel color paper for these blossoms.

Choosing the right color for the center of the flower is totally up to you. I played with pastel shades while you can always contrast your petal to the pistil. Anything you think will go.

1.    Make your poppies. Once you have made your poppies, put aside.
2.    Glue your poppies to a circled cardboard in 15 cm diameter.
3.    Start making the pistils. Cut thin strips of paper. Mine measured about 20 cm in width and around 1 m in length.
4.    Now, start folding the strips in half. Then roll them up and secure with a stapler.
5.    Fix the pistil into the center of your poppy and seal with hot glue. Done!

Here are more pictures of how I incorporated them in bolder colors for a wedding decoration.
 See how such little makes a big difference?!

Farmhouse Party

Not only did Old MacDonald have a farm, but Ayasofya also had one for her birthday bash!


Most animals made it to the party, like the cows on hats and bunting flags; the cow, chicken, duck, goat on cupcakes and cookies; and the pigs on the piggy goody bags. Not to mention the cow photo booth that was an extra fun feature with additional animal masks for the photo props.
 How cute are those chicken cupcakes and carrot cake pops?!
 All the farm animal photo props you need :)
Pink pig paper goody bags. Super fun and easy

I created this theme by combining greens with animals and classic red checked fabric that I set for the tablecloth and incorporated it into the bunting flags. On the table settings, I added a runner made from brown sacks resembling a barn and hay feel that you might find at a farm.



Vegetable characters also appeared in the carrot shaped cake pops and spoon and fork setting resembling a carrot. Yes, it’s all in the details!

Playing with balloons is always fun, as you can almost make anything out of them. This time, we built a balloon tree with hints of red balloons as apples, another farm-must-have. I’m sure Ayasofya and her guests had an A-moo-zing day!

DIY Origami Wishing Tree


That day, I decorated a Japanese themed photo booth for BNI Life event. It consisted of a back drop of pretty umbrellas and a tree full of crane origami birds. Here’s how to make your own paper fleet! Speaking of origami, you might ask, is it tricky? Maybe at first. But beware, it’s addictive!
What You Need:
Origami paper in different colors and sizes. The bigger the paper, the bigger the bird.

NOTE:
-    If your paper origami is only colored on one side, make sure the colored side is facing up when you start folding.
-    If you don’t have origami paper, you can always use computer paper and form it into a square first. I bet newspaper would be good too!
How To Make:
1.    Fold your piece of paper diagonally, shaping a triangle.
2.    Unfold, then fold diagonally again on the opposite side.
3.    Turn the paper over then fold in to a rectangle.
4.    Unfold and fold the opposite side too.
5.    Unfold and position your paper so one corner is facing you.
6.    Using the creases you made, bring the top three corners down to the bottom corner and flatten.
7.    Fold the bottom triangular flaps into the center.
8.    Fold the triangular top of this piece down and crease.
9.    Unfold and top flap of the model, bring it upwards so that it shapes long diamond shape pressing down the sides of the model inwards at the same time.
10.    Turn the model over and repeat no 7, 8, 9.
11.    Your model will now look like a diamond shape.
12.    Fold the top flaps again into the center starting from the bottom.
13.    Repeat on the other side. Your model should now look like a long kite.
14.    Now, fold both legs up creasing very well and unfold.
15.    Open every side of the flaps and fold the legs up in between and fold down one leg to make the head.
16.    Fold down the wings and your crane is done!
17.    Now all you need to do is repeat your birdies in different colors and sizes and hang them on dry branches in a large vase. I’m telling you, it is really pretty!

For a visual tutorial, try this video here. Have fun!

Perry The Platypus Party

Who’s party? My son’s.
How old was he last October? Eight years old.
Ahhh… how does a child grow so fast?
Yuara, my medicine… It was him who first taught me how to love unconditionally. It truly has been a tremendous pleasure to watch him grow and to understand the way he thinks. I'd never known a kid who could feel so big. And because he is that precious, naturally,  we threw him a theme party he picked out himself, along with the back drop, d├ęcor, and goody bags only by his approval. Being a child of a decorator is getting to him, I see…
Perry The Platypus themed party it was! A lot of turquoise was involved like on the baloons in the backdrop, the cake, cupcakes, and table cloth. From the look on his face when he first saw it, I knew he loved it.
Here are some pictures of the celebration at The Wave PIM 3.
Isn't that cake so cute?
 Green rice? Why not?!
  Splishing and splashing after blowing out the candles!
 At the end, everyone got to take home this hat.

Kutri’s Snoopy Party

I don’t know how this happened but my little girl turned four. To celebrate this tremendous surprise, we held her a Snoopy themed. Is she a big fan of this character? Sure, though (maybe) not as big as her mommy! So you can imagine how excited I was to prepare all things Snoopy.

Quality Control by the birthday girl

I decorated the dessert table backdrop with cloud plushies, fabric kites, and of course the cardboard Snoopy dog house – both the little and big version. I also made the kite-eating tree from green pompoms and a coat rack, that stood by the table and dog shed. The table was filled with the cutest Snoopy character treats and the birthday cake was brilliant. Great job @lilchumchum, I loved it so so much!

The photobooth was that Lucy’s infamous psychiatrist stand and surprise, surprise.. it made a great frame for family pictures while blowing out the candles. It was quite a hit!
What were also a hit? Crafting Snoopy bags and watching the movie all together at @kinosaurusjakarta. It was a great day with the cousins and the little birthday girl had a blast. After all, it’s only that what you want on your kid’s party, right?


I am personally glad that the Snoopy fever in me has come out cool and strong!

TeePee Party

It was a fine day for a TeePee party on Ava Adore’s big day! To be honest this past year, I have used a lot of teepees for party decoration. That’s why I decided to go ‘out of the box’ for this unique themed party. Yep, I went with cardboard teepees for a change! I surfed the internet trying to figure out the way to go with cardboards and even though I found many images of cardboard teepees but they were profesionally made. So I tried conversing the ideal image in my head and tadaaa!

What you need: Large used cardboard boxes, glue gun, scissors, lace fabric.

How to make:

1.    Cut out four long trapezoid-shaped pieces of cardboard. Mine measured 150 cm high.
2.    Place the cardboard side by side on the floor and glue them together from top to bottom.
3.    For the last piece (and also functioning as the teepee entrance), cut one short trapezoid-shaped cardboard, and glue it in the front.
4.    Cover the top and sides of the teepee using lace fabric (or any fabric you want, really) to create the tent feel.
5.    Be free to decorate your teepee with ornaments outside and pillows and cushions inside for a comfortable hideout.

FINAL TIP: Use a quilt blanket tied up to the high ceiling to create that tent feel at the dessert table!
