Decorating with Stripes

At my daughter's birthday party, there will be a head table decorated with fruits, flowers, and traditional Korean rice cakes. At Korean 1st year birthday parties (also known as "dols"), the head table usually has a  background banner attached to the wall. I want to avoid doing this. I'd like to use fabric instead to cover the back wall by incorporating stripes or maybe using the same design as the table cover. After looking at this photo, it looks more Parisian to use black and white stripes on the wall.

The problem is, how do I hang the fabric on the wall without nailing it on?

Here's another photo of a table with green and white stripes found at Hostess with the Mostess. I keep getting drawn to striped patterns!

Don't these macarons look scrumptious? It would be great if I could have these at my daughter's birthday party. Apparently, Pierre Herme is known to sell the best macarons. I love their cute packaging boxes as well.

Free 4th of July Tags


Following up from my previous post where you are able to download a free 4th of July invitation template, you can now download these festive party tags. These can be used as cupcake toppers, stickers and to help decorate party favors.

Download the file and color print on cardstock sheets. A 2" circle or scallop puncher is recommended and be sure to cut the sheet into strips for easy punching. You can color print these at home, but bringing the file to a commercial printer (Office Depot, Kinko's, etc.) will ensure better quality printing.

Happy crafting!
