Paper - Ashley meaders[1]

I love stationary.  Invitations, programs and place cards make me giddy!  But my love of all things paper doesn’t stop there.  You can do so many cool things with décor just using plain old cheap paper.  There are the popular suspects, like tissue poms and pin wheels, but paper can do so much more.

I love the idea of these paper chargers from Martha Stewart.  They are simple yet elegant and a lot less expensive to make than to rent.  You can also add punches of color with paper bunting.  Make it bright and fun or sweet and romantic.  Either way, it will bring interest to your design.

One of my all time favorite aisle runners is the one below, captured by Jasmine Star. How cute is the DIY garland?

If origami is more your style, try this great DIY paper crane garland project or add a splash of butterflies to your fete.
