There is no better way to decorate your holiday tables than to gather fallen leaves from around your neighborhood, the best part is…it’s free and oh so pretty!! Our favorite leaves are from Magnolia trees, the yellow and green colors are so lovely! Display them however you would like, it’s super easy and there is no wrong way to lay out your foliage. Have fun with it and happy decorating!

Sofia Champagne – Cheers! We purchased this beauty from our local BevMo. The Sofia Champagne has a stunning label with the perfect touch of gold foil accents… It’s kind of our favorite.
Request Card – Please download our freebie bridesmaid request card from our previous blog post. Click here.
Paint Swatches – Pantone swatches were a score. We found these at our local Lowes. Pick swatch colors that best represent what color dresses you’ll want your girls to shop for.
Custom Stationery – We’ve got you covered! We have so many customizable options in our online shop.
Flower Bunch – We couldn’t resist these precious flowers! The hints of pink and purple on the tips of the petals are too cute…from our local Whole Foods.
Nail Polish – Essie is always a great choice. Again make sure to pick shades that will help your girls understand what color scheme you’re trying to create.
Wooden Box – We picked this box up from Hobby Lobby! We loved the natural look of the wood, but this box would be super cute stained or painted some lovely color.
Materials: Printer Paper, Tissue Paper of any color, Sharpie Gold Metallic Paint Pen, Skewers, Scissors, Glue Gun
Step 1: Gather materials. Print out our freebie downloadable flag tags and cut them out.
Step 2: Use your Sharpie Paint Pen to trace the words “YIPPEE”. We chose gold, but go wild with your colors!
Step 3: Cut a strip of tissue about 7″x 6″, fold the tissue paper in half lengthwise so that your strip is now 7″x 3″. For a fuller fringe make the strip longer.
Step 4: Holding your tissue paper lengthwise, cut small strips up towards the fold but make sure to stop 3/4″ from the top.
Step 5: Use your glue gun to attach the skewer to one edge of the tissue paper.
Step 6: Now roll the base of the tissue paper around the skewer and glue closed. Then wrap the YIPPEE flag around the skewer to cover the base of the tissue.
… and Tadaa!!!
