Party Preparations

Hanging poufs.
We have had a gorgeous Easter weekend!  I was thrilled to hear that the forecast for our egg hunt party was sunshine, and felt pretty lucky that it actually held true.  The kiddos had a great time and were pretty darn cute searching for all of the eggs and I had fun getting ready for the party and seeing everything come together.  However, this post is not about the egg hunt.  Last night was Matt's turn to put Beansprout to bed; and while I should have been organizing the photos and writing our Easter post, I chose to spend the time finishing a party decoration I never got to for Saturday's party.  Before you think I've lost my mind, I should mention that my home is the venue for a friend's baby shower in a few weeks, so I knew I wasn't wasting this precious time.  I pulled out the tissue paper, the scissors, some fishing line, and floral wire and got to work. You may have already noticed that I have had a slight love affair with banners for awhile, but they may have to move over for my new crush - the tissue POUF!  Why haven't I tried these before!?!  They're super easy to make, add such a great pop of color, and they hang.  It's love.

Hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend!  How did you spend your time? Stay tuned for more on our Easter Egg Hunt Party. Thanks for reading!


  1. LOVE this!! My good friend and I hosted a baby shower a month ago and she made a whole bunch of these poufs! We hung them all over my house, they were such a huge hit!!!

  2. Aren't they fun!?! That's how I'm feeling right now, like I want to hang them around the WHOLE house :) They're making me pretty happy, though, hanging over the dining room table!
