With Summer’s lovely warm weather, comes the time for garden or pool parties. It’s so much fun to make decorations for such – coming up with new ways to set the table etc.
So I thought that the fun and cute little boxes from Simply Crafty Svgs‘ Surf ‘n Swim Box Set would be perfect decorations on the table and as they are tall, they’re perfects for cutlery:
Fun fact: When wanting to find cutlery for this picture, I used half a day to search for wooden cutlery as they are more eco-friendly than the plastic ones. And what do I do? Spoil all the eco-friendly-ness by decorating with plastic straws – so sorry for that 😀
Let’s start off with the Swim Suit Box:
I used AC Cardstock in Black, Taffy, Apricot, Lemon, Goldfish and Moss along with patterned paper from DCWV’s “Electric Jungle” Stack.
The cute Hibiscus flowers is found in the Silhouette Design Store design ID #62344 (by Amy Robison) and the leaves are design ID #1696 (by Silhouette)
And voila – one box down 🙂 (and the Tucan looks like he flew away or lost his colors – darn shiny paper)
Next is the Board Shorts Box:
Here I used AC Cardstock in Taffy, Lemon, White and Moss and the patterned paper is from the same DCWV Stack.
Cute right? And so easy!
Finally the Surf Board Box:
This is properbly the most tricky one of the three even though none of them are hard to make.
I used AC Cardstock in White, Apricot, Surf and Turf. The patterned paper is still the same from DCWV 😉 but I also used some sand patterned paper from another DCWV Stack – Coastal.
I also used an Embossing folder with a rind pattern. Not sure what brand it is – sorry.
Now these are just waiting for the party to begin 🙂
Are you having an outdoor party this summer? If so – what theme? Tell me all about it in a comment below.
