friday faves [new finds]

Friday, March 25, 2011

it's been awhile since i did my regular friday faves and i'm bringing today some amazing new finds (well, new to me) that i am excited to share. 

first, is this too cute of a token. cute in the true sense of the word as it is the world's smallest postal service - mailing tiny letters, petite packages as serviced by leafcutter designs.

want to send a little something to a loved one? here are a few ideas. a small package of 2 dice with a note saying "go for it, take a chance". or perhaps trying to patch things up with a special someone and sending out a small compass with a note saying "where would i be without you?". my favorite is this tiny bundle of flowers for a birthday, mother's day or for any occasion. they are too precious!

another new fantastic blog to me is alexis' jac o'lyn murphy. a blog full of creative invitations and party favor ideas all created by alexis. the photo above is for her daughter's 9th shopping mall scavenger hunt birthday party which sounds a lot of fun and the purse invites are sooo perfect!

for a friend who founded a winery, his birthday celebration incorporated some winery elements. alexis arranged hyacinth centerpieces in glass hurricanes with the winery corks. so pretty - visit her blog for tons of entertaining and party ideas!

lastly, are you dreaming of a pretty white backdrop for a wedding ceremony or a dessert table? check out this insanely stunning wall of white paper flowers created by hartmann at a wedding fair event held in four seasons hotel SF. i spotted these photos via therese jacinto's blog (a lovely talented event stylist/florist and interior designer in the san francisco bay area). she took these photos at the said event. i am in LOVE with these!

Great finds! That paper flower backdrop is amazing! It reminds me of this series of posts I read back when I was preparing for T's birthday party:
