Instead of giving out store-bought gift bags, create your own personalized reusable bags that are cute and eco-friendly. Make them silly and sweet or sharp and sophisticated to suit your soiree. Not just for children's parties, these are a wonderful way to send home a piece of your party for your guests to enjoy.


Rather than resort to plain old plastic covers, pretty up those cocktail tables with fabric. Drapped and wrapped then finished with a bow these are the flourish to your party. A long cut of fabric and some ribbon are all you need to make your tables go from boring to beautiful.


A party is not a party without balloons! Go from ordinary to extraordinary by simply wrapping your balloons with a sheer fabric. Something so simple is sure to wow the crowd.
