We Love... My Paper Planet Party Decorations!

Family traditions, birthday celebrations, and special events are treasured in our household and we love to decorate the house and table together, and carefully wrap our gifts with lovely colours and cheerful styling. This week I had a pleasure of meeting Mara from My Paper Planet who shares my affection for party styling. Today I’d like to share some of my top picks from her store!

My Paper Planet is a absolute treasure trove of party goodness. Mara chooses eye catching hues and simple, yet stylish designs that are suited to a range of celebrations. Specialising in baby showers and birthday parties, Mara works with cardstock, and makes gift boxes, gift tags, invitations, and party banners. Oh, and she is especially fond of elephants!

At the top of shopping list was a few My Paper Planet mini banners, which I plan to use for photo props and cake decorations. These little banners can be made with a custom message, and are so affordable at around $6 – $8. They arrive pre-strung and ready to hang and can be made in a variety of colourways.

I also picked out a few pieces to add to my ‘party box’ including the speech bubble gift tags and the letter initial gift tags, which are exceptionally well made and are such a lovely way to add a finishing touch to a gift, or to use in scrapbooking or other creative pursuits. These would also be awesome to attach to party treat bags or Christmas crackers / bonbons to add a personal and colourful touch to your table.

The KID independent crew was most impressed with My Paper Planet, from the ease of ordering, to packing and delivery, and the superb quality of Mara’s products. We’ll most certainly be dropping by again soon… but before we leave you today, here’s a little snapshot of the other goodies that Mara has to offer. Happy shopping!

Valentine's Day Cards For Your Dreamboat...

Hey folks! Valentine’s Day is coming up soon. My hubby and I don’t really do Valentine’s Day gifts, as we’ve kind of outgrown it over the years. However, we do exchange cards with a sweet message and pop open a bottle of wine once the kidlets are fast asleep in bed! Here’s a few lovely handmade creations from some fabulous Aussie Etsy sellers. Enjoy!
