I always love going to a little shop in my town that wraps gifts using a brown box and washi tape- and so, when I saw Christine’s gorgeous gift boxes and ornaments, I wanted to share her great ideas with you!  Washi tape is decorative tape that comes in so many colors and patterns.  It is great to have on hand for any time of the year for wrapping and for crafts.  Enjoy these easy ideas from Christine at Pure Joy Events– it is gift wrapping made easy and cute!  Even the children will love giving it their own special touch!

Thank you for sharing your holiday ideas with us, Christine!  Beautiful~

There is nothing like the bright colors and happy prints of Lilly Pulitzer to make every day feel like a party!  For my daughter’s 12th birthday party, she wanted to decorate cakes~ Lilly-style!  So, in order to decide how to mesh the two, I kept thinking “if Lilly had a cake shop instead of a juice stand”… I have to admit, this was one fun party to plan!  It is a blast to see where ideas go in the hands of a TWEEN!  Enjoy and remember, “…being happy never goes out of style!”. 


What began as a simple gesture to introduce my daughter to a wonderful book series has become a special evening ritual for us- reading Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House books!  I must admit, I didn’t realize quite how interesting these books would be to her, but she cannot wait to read all nine in the series.  It was only fitting that her birthday party focus around Little House on the Prairie!  Together, we had a ball planning all of the details of her party that related to the books in some way.  At Camille’s request, we focused on some of her favorite parts of the stories… prairie flowers, covered wagons, tee pees, the colors in the drawings of the books,  and “pretty”…because “Ma” liked things to be pretty!
