Black paper and chalk for an old school backdrop

Play around with the mood by sticking paper doilies and tissue art to ceiling spotlights and lanterns

Label your fridge door and ice cooler so your friends can find their own way

Say it pretty

Home baked cakes are just closer to the heart

DIY Maison Michel Lace Bunny Ears

When the Olsen twins stepped out in Maison Michel lace bunny and mouse ears , it was love at first site for me!  And now Beyonce is seen sporting Marc Jacobs bunny ears in her lastest Party video , i just had to make a pair for my own birthday party.

All you need to make your own : lace, thread, needle and thin metal wire.

Glue , tape or stitch them onto a headband and it's done!
