DIY paper chain garland
Nostalgia is likely to set in with this paper chain party decoration. As kids, we use to make these paper chains out of scraps of paper just for the fun of it. Well now it’s time to put those repressed skills to good use as you create a festive party decoration. You can use this project to line walls or doorways or you can hang them from the ceiling to add a little extra pizzaz. [Courtesy of FloridianWeddings]
Repurposed Lit Umbrellas
Another creative idea that will achieve a charming ambiance uses umbrellas bought or rented then hung upside down among cafe bulb lights. This idea is fairly easy to duplicate and will wow your guests. Hang them outside for a summer party or over a dance floor for a little extra fun. [We need to thank Erin for the great idea]
