It’s all about non-traditional party decorations today! Don’t get me wrong, I love garlands, flags and balloons but today I wanna share my new favourite party decoration; my bulletin board! When I was younger, I used bulletin boards for storing my Johnny Depp magazine photo collection. But now I use this awesome circle bulletin board as a party necessity. I still love Johnny Depp as much as I did back then, though.

My last confetti DIY was a while ago, 13 days to be precise, so I decided it was time for another one! I believe that a party without confetti isn’t a party, but it is a heck of a lot easier to clean afterwards. Sometimes you just don’t want vacuum after a midnight fest. This confetti bar is perfect for parties WITH confetti but WITHOUT the mess. Just let your guests fill these bottles with confetti at the exit. This way you have an awesome party and a clean dancefloor!

I have the best job during the summer months. Looking after kids means being able to spend my days out in the sun, playing awesome backyard games, but not everybody is this lucky. This DIY mini bowling game brings the F.U.N of outside games, inside. Perfect for everyone who is stuck behind a desk all day, they are perfect during phoneconversations, and easy to hide before your boss gets in.

I don’t do follow-ups. I don’t do sequals. But this blogpost is the perfect part 2 for my Bookclub Picknick Boxes post! I LOVE books. I LOVE confetti. Why did it took me so long to combine the two then? Reading a book is already  party, if it’s a proper good book, but confetti makes every celebration better. Right? These bookmarks are especially for those who spend their saturday night on the couch, with an amazing book! That’s an awesome party, right there!

Time to get in the summer spirit! My summer season wouldn’t be complete without a few (a lot) of amazing books and I can’t be the only one who loves to read with something delicious next to me. Right? These picknick boxes are made for the job! Filled with my favorite comfort foods, they are perfect for the beach, the woods or the backyard. You don’t wanna keep walking in and out the house for the next piece of chocolate, now do you?

FINALLY. Am I the only one who hates waiting after ordering something awesome online? It only took my new business cards 3 days, but those were the longest 3 days ever!  Luckily I had something to keep me occupied; finding myself a great cardholder. That is quite a hard task as well, because the ones I found were boring and wall-street-business-like. I didn’t like any. So… I made one myself! There isn’t much I love as much as I love my new business cards; but a Sunny Side Up egg is definitely one of them!

I know that the exams have really only just begun, but we need to get prepared for all the new graduates right?! And I am also aware of the fact that money seems to be the bestest, populair gift but really, those fresh new graduates want some support. A little bit of encouragement and a whole lot of confidence. Cause this is where their journey really begins…

I AM BACK! I had a lovely, relaxing holiday and I am ready to kick ass with new ideas and DIYs. Starting immediatelly with these amazing compliment flags! If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw that I left some kindness notes around our hotel (they were removed the next day though… some people just don’t get it), and they made me remember that I didn’t do an updated version of my compliment cards. So, without further ado, here are my upgraded kindness compliment flags!

I haven’t put up any food related posts for quite a while now. Weird, because I really love creating delicious little party treats. Like these chocolate cups filled with… guess what?!…. CHOCOLATE. Why not combine the different chocolate flavours? White, milk and pure; YAY! And marshmallows, because I couldn’t resist adding something sweet.

I am a detail kinda’ person. Doesn’t matter how much I love to spend time fixing tablesettings or counting the amount of chairs;… at the end of the day I get most pleasure out of the details. Especially party details. But never before have I given’ any thought to cutlery. It was always present but never special. How sad?! So. Today I will celebrate the perfectness of party cutlery with you! Hip Hip Hooray!
