New Year’s party

Sunday, December 30th, 2012

Only one day for New Year’s Eve.

Are you a last minute party organiser? then take a look for ideas.

Last year I downloaded some printables for a lovely New Year’s Banner. So I wanted to find something that would match my last year’s scheme.

Here I found interesting tutorials/printables:


Sequinned Stir Sticks from somewhere splendid:

A nice New Year’s printable from be different act normal:

Shimmering Streamers from Martha Stewart:

Finally I recommend spice things up by adding clocks around the place, lots of them hanging from the ceiling and from the walls!

Here there are some places where you can down load some of them:

SOUL standsĀ  for “Spirit of Ultimate Lifestyle” and this is what this Scandinavian shop in the Beacon South Quarter in Dublin is trying to offer.

They are Spanning over two floors and have a very extensive range of stunning Scandinavian designed living and dining room furniture and accessories.

I think is worth a look during the coming up sales!

Some of their looks:

Christmas trees

Thursday, December 6th, 2012

I like to make a few hand made decorations every year. I found this cute Christmas trees on the Lemon tree creations website. They are nice aren’t they? and they are easy to make too!

Here is my own personal version! I used wine corks and fabric from unwanted clothes!


Eco-friendly gift wrap

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

Every year I promess myself that I will have spare time before Christmas to wrap properly the gifts. However, that rarely happens. This year I am decided to have time to “beutify” the presents with nice and eco-friendly gift wrap. So I took a look around the web to see what I could find.

Here are some good ideas:
