As the Tulip Nuptial Recap Extravaganza winds down, I’m still discovering the occasional forgotten detail. And the current case in point is actually one of my favorite decorations from our wedding reception:
As a cheapskate budget bride, I’ve always loved the decorative-bang-for-few-bucks factor of the famous Martha Stewart tissue poufs. In fact, I bought some red tissue and planned to do up poufs for our own decor. But between illness and general laziness, few things get done in my world. And in the end … well, let’s just say our red-tissue-paper needs will be met for many Christmases to come!
Luckily I also picked up a dozen of these beauties, which hung from the ceiling in our cocktail area. Assembly took approximately two seconds — just unfold the rice-paper accordion around the circle and secure it with a bit of tape or the included paper clip. I adored them for some crazy reason, whether because of the bright turquoise color or my love for vintage accordion-paper party decorations (Santa’s belly, anyone?). Available at Luna Bazaar, they come in 5 colors and are $1.50 for the 14″ model and $1.95 for an 18-incher (less if you buy a dozen or more).
What other simple paper decorations can be used to jazz up a celebration site? Anyone going with paper flags or streamers? Or the genuine Martha floral poms?
