PaperCrafter Magazine ♥ Christmas Inspired Sweet Table

10 Dec

We are so happy to be featured in Issue 66 edition of PaperCrafter magazine. We were asked to provide some blue, white and grey products for a vintage sweet inspired Christmas table.

Paper Crafter Magazine 3

The ‘Perfect Paper Party’ was inspired by a cool and frosty colour scheme. I love the results, what do you think?

We provided polka dot baking cups, paper straws, floral embellishments, paper bags, bakers twine, mini cardboard cake stands, bakers twine, crimped paper shred and our tissue fans. PaperCrafter also asked us to provide some tips and tricks on how to create the perfect vintage inspired spread at home. In case you missed it, here is what we recommend!

♥ Stick to a colour theme and streamline the decorations to give a sense of consistency.

♥ If your creating a vintage feel it can be difficult to achieve a uniformed colour scheme, but that is part of the style! I’ll often display old crockery and service pieces alongside newly-sourced bits.

♥ Is your spread missing something? When in doubt, add flowers. You will be surprised at how they can really finish off a table and they compliment a vintage theme perfectly.

♥ Try using old family recipes that evoke warm and happy memories. It will give you and your guests something to chat and reminisce about.
