Graduation Leis!

Image
It's that time of year - graduation! We are making candy leis like crazy and wanted to share some easy, fun ideas!


This one is fairly time consuming, but the end result is so fun! We took 3 frooties at a time and tied them together, and then tied them to the main string, alternating colors. We chose good ole Lehi purple, but this would also be cute in a rainbow of colors, chocolate brown, or of course, the school's colors!
Careful - this one was hard on my finger - lots of knot tying! 

This is a new favorite this year - a simple chunky patterned ribbon with a candy Pop Rocks attached, with a bright tag saying "YOU ROCK - Congratulations!"

This is a refreshing new look that we are loving, and so are the customers!

Who doesn't love rainbows and bubblegum?! This would be perfect for your preschooler or kindergartener's graduation, and we made it a little shorter just for the little ones. We've added a little bow on the side to add some flair!

And finally, o…

Throwback Thursday!

We thought we'd throw it back to a few of our past Studio 5 segments for some great ideas and inspiration!

Sweet and Simple Thank you ideas

and

Teacher Appreciation Gifts

We will be sharing some more ideas for all sorts of awesome CANDY leis for graduations on MONDAY, MAY 5 on Studio 5! Don't miss it, we have some really cute and easy ideas coming your way!

St. Patrick's Day Video - Make it Fun!

Image
If you missed our segment on Studio 5 last week, you can still check it out!  Emily showed a couple of St. Patrick's Day game ideas, two ways to have the Leprechaun visit your house this year, ways to add a little green to your home, and how to brighten someone's day with a little green!



Also, just a quick recommendation for all of you who live in the area.  You've got to visit the new clothing boutique Valshi (formerly Lavish)!  You will find UNIQUE clothes at GREAT prices!  I usually don't shop at all the boutiques because of their high prices... but I have now found my match!  Isn't this grey dress and boots so cute?!  And comfy!  Thanks Valshi for making me look good!  And be sure to "like" their facebook page to see all their new pieces coming in daily!

St. Patrick's Day Ideas Galore!

Tune in Friday (tomorrow!) at 11 a.m. to watch Studio 5!  Emily will be showing you how to be the coolest mom on the block this St. Patrick's Day.  We'll cover how to EASILY pinch-proof your house, how to incorporate a Leprechaun into your day, a couple of classroom game ideas, as well as some cute green and gold gifts to give away!  Whew!  It will be quick, so you might want to check in with KSL's website afterwards to read all about it.  



Also, notice Emily's outfit - a darling new boutique called Valshi in Lehi dressed her!  Valshi Boutique (formerly Lavish) is the perfect place for the Fashionista on a Budget! They have something for everyone.   From clothing to accessories,  to handbags and more. You'll find everything you need to be fabulous! They have awesome low prices and unique pieces.  Check out their facebook page for daily updates and pictures of their new products that come in!  You'll be sure to find a fun new TREASURE at Valshi!!

DIY: Ribbon Chandeliers

Image
Ribbon Chandelier:Such a cute idea to hang over a candy or food table at a party… or make it extra frilly to hang in your little girl’s closet!The idea:get a wooden embroidery hoop.Grab your scrap pieces of ribbon (or new), and start tying them onto the hoop.Again, all different lengths and sizes of ribbon is the key here.You can make it as full as you want… but I would suggest attaching enough ribbon so that the knots are touching each other on the hoop.I just tied knots at the top (no bows here!).Hang with raffia, ribbon, or fishing line!Group in 2’s or 3’s for the best overall look!



DIY: Crepe Paper Banner

Image
Need a simple & inexpensive and fast party decoration? Make yourself a good old fashioned crepe paper banner! I'll be honest, when I think of crepe paper twisted from the ceiling, sometimes I cringe.  I have bad memories of faded light pink crepe paper lifelessly hanging... (not sure who's party or when...but it is in my brain!) Well girls, THIS idea, is not that!   Check this out:
This is on someone's mantle.  Huge letters, wrapped in yarn... and yep!  The beautiful crepe paper banner hung above it.  Darling, yeah?
Grab the crepe paper that you want. (we have over 20 colors in stock, FYI)
Get some ribbon.
Cut crepe paper into strips - all different lengths, or all the same!  You choose.
Fold the crepe paper over the ribbon, staple and you're done!  
So easy, huh?



DIY: Paper Plate Balls

Image
Paper Plate Balls All you'll need is 20 paper plates for each ball...the mini dessert plates work best.
1.  Fold the plates into triangles as shown.
2.  Staple two plates together with 3 staples.
3.  Attach 3 more plates to make a pentagon, then repeat to make a second pentagon.  (each pentagon will have 5 plates).  Set both aside.
4.  Staple the remaining 10 plates together into a long chain.
5.  Staple the ends of the chain together to form a ring.  Then staple the two pentagons to the top and the bottom of the ring.


You're done!!  Spray paint (glitter really makes your balls stand out!), add ribbon, and hang!  We have seen these used at wedding receptions, bridal and baby showers, and all sorts of parties!  

DIY: Zig Zag Accordion Streamers

Image
This is such an old school idea:  use paper and scissors to create your own decorations.
But really - it IS REALLY CUTE!
All you need is colored paper (you choose), scissors, and tape or pushpins!
Here we go...





THERE!  You did it!  You have an accordion zig zag streamer to hang for your next party!  I love the impact a group of these can make, as well as the simplicity - and the next-to-nothing cost of it all!
It would be a good project for a classroom to do:  have each child make one or two, depending on their age, and then the teacher can hang them after school.  When the students come the next day, they will see the decorations hanging and making the classroom festive!  
(you can use tape, thumbtacks, etc. depending on the surface of your ceiling)

For some GREAT photos of zig zag accordion streamers used in an everyday party setting, check out  OH HAPPY DAY.

New Years Eve Party Ideas

This is a re-post from last year when we were on Studio 5 for New Years Ideas...Hope you can find something fun to do for your party!
Here are some of the ideas we talked about on Studio 5 today... Make a New Years Eve (Christmas) Tree: Turn your Christmas Tree into a New Years one! Right after Christmas take down all decorations and store away. Get a combination of horns, blowers, balloons, garland, streamers, confetti – and decorate the tree! Keep it up for the week in between Christmas and New Years to get in the spirit! Right before midnight, guests or family members grab what they want off the tree to ring in the New Year! A FUN PARTY THEME IDEA: Countdown by the Hour (Use a CLOCK theme to carry throughout the decorations and activities) -Paint kids faces white, then use black to draw clock hands. -White balloons (or clear filled with confetti) can be drawn on to look like a clock. -Have guests bring an alarm clock (and gather all of your own)… set the alarms to all go off at mid…

You are invited...
