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!

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 almos…

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.

-    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 ma…

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.
