With such damage and loss of life as this, it seemed almost trivial to write about the my latest party inspiration or room design today. What little it must mean in the wake of such a horrific disaster, I thought.
But then I began to look at this little blog in a different way. If we should take nothing else from this catastrophe, it should be that life is fleeting and that we should make the most of it. We should savor the small joys in life and take time to see the beauty in things. We should rejoice more, celebrate more and really appreciate every day. That's what I aspire to do with my blog--to showcase a little bit of beauty or inspiration in a world that is often so dark. By no means do I profess to think that my daily words make this world a better place, but if my post brightens just one person's day today, gets one person excited about the little joys in life, then it's been a success. With that being said, here's today's inspiration. I hope you enjoy.
I've been on a party design kick lately, and with all of the celebrations coming up in the lives of our friends, I have a feeling it will stay that way for awhile. One of the things I've been seeing and LOVING is the use of ribbons and fabric strips to create vintage-styled garlands and backdrops. It's a simple way to bring fanciful fun to any event.
