For quite some time now, every amazing looking party we've seen has been decked out in paper in some way, shape or form. And we absolutely love that. In fact, we can't remember the last time any one here in the office had a party where we didn't craft away at some part of the party!
Aside from the obvious fact that paper is an inexpensive resource, it's also super easy to customize.
Party printables are, in one word, AWESOME. You can come up with any theme for parties and have them made up by a professional for cheap, then print the exact amount you need on your printer. People, it doesn't get much better than that!
We adore Gwynn Wasson's work. She's helped style a few parties for us already (including the above pool party for kids) and we're itching to see more! You can check out all of her designs or order a special one you may have in mind over at her blog Gwynn Wasson Designs.
Paper fans are fabulous and super trendy right now. And they are BEYOND easy to make. No matter your skill level these guys will look great and take just a little time and energy to make. Check out a few shots we've seen around the blogosphere:
Kara from Kara's Party Ideas, threw this shower for her sister. It's been featured by so many, including The Party Dress magazine, and we're not surprised.
