Toilet Paper Roll Gift Boxes:
So simple. This was one of our first Pinterest successes of this party. You literally just PUSH the ends of the roll together. They fold over pretty naturally and neatly without much manipulation or “fixing it” if you know what I mean. We bought paper doilies (in the baking section at Michael’s) and wrapped the roll after stamping them. We secured with ever-popular Baker’s twine (Home Goods) and placed in a bowl in a prominent area so our guests would remember to take one home.
DO NOT miss an opportunity ladies. Decorating with the invitation seems too simple, but it does have a lot of impact. More often than not, your Mom-to-Be never laid eyes on the it. It’s nice to show her you thought of all the details, right down to the invitation. This invitation came from tinyprints.com. We repeated our wood slices and faux moss stones, and added a simple orange floral arrangement, so as not to girl it up in there too much.
You have to make people want to come closer. I hope/think we achieved that goal. We made those damn tissue paper pom poms. We used orange and a green & white chevron striped paper from PartyCity. This is the best tutorial I’ve ever found that shows exactly how to create your own poms. We secured gray crepe paper streamers inside the poms and twisted them and secured them under the table. We used the streamers to flank the burlap table runner.
Aren’t you intrigued? Well have a closer look! We elevated the cake to make sure it was the center of attention. We used grilling skewers, scrapbook paper, and baker’s twine to make our little bunting cake topper. Again, we used wooden slabs and other fun things to create our woodland/campfire experience.
A pinecone-filled apothecary jar, multicolored ceramic owls, wooden slabs, and a simple lantern was all she wrote. But sometimes, less is more.
