Featured in: Molly Makes!

I was so excited to get a copy of the British publication, Mollie Makes in the mail yesterday featuring the rustic mason jar lanterns we made for my parent’s 30th Wedding Anniversary party (see more on the party here, here, and here).  The magazine, which by the way is currently running a contest where you can win a subscription (here), is fabulous for craft lovers.  The tutorials are thorough and the ideas are fresh and inspiring!

A First Birthday Party!

I had to share the pictures from Etta’s adorable First Birthday Party – they were just too cute to not!  Haute Papier worked hard to create a fun and playful theme based around unique colors and funky fonts.  Some of our favorite elements were the cake pops inspired by Bakerella, personalized plates from Boatman Geller, and polka dot garland, sewn by yours truly!  Stay tuned for a tutorial on the garland!
