Craftykins // DIY Napkin Garland

By now, you’ve probably seen the latest line of Oh Joy! For Target goodies. If you haven’t, you need to get yourself to a Target as soon as possible. It’s my favorite collection yet. The geometric patterns complete with hints of gold foil make it feel like the classiest line of party supplies you’ve ever seen. I’ve been planning my daughter’s first birthday party (coming up soon!) and Joy’s patterns and color scheme fit in with my birthday bash ideas so perfectly. It’s fate, I tell you! I wanted to incorporate the gold and pink geometric pattern as a garland and these napkins were perfect for just that!

Materials needed:

Cut a long piece of yarn to your desired length for the garland. Fold each napkin in half over the yarn. Using the thumbtack, poke three tiny holes at the top of each fold, but just under where the yarn is.

Remove the thumbtack and thread a paper fastener/brad through each hole. Unfold the fastener to keep the napkins in place. Repeat these steps until you’ve completed the length of the garland.

You should also pick up as many mini party hats from the collection as you can. They’re going to come in handy for all sorts of parties. I can feel it.

Now, hang the garland anywhere you see fit! Use it as a backdrop for parties, to brighten up your office, or hang in the kids’ playroom! Let’s all thank Joy for creating the loveliest party supplies to have ever graced the Target aisles!

Featurekins // A Look Ahead: One Black Egg SS2015 Lookbook

We are technically not into the Fall season yet, but in the fashion industry, we are always looking at least a season ahead. This gives brick and mortar and online shops the opportunity to preview and order fresh inventory. Earlier this month, designers displayed their Spring/Summer 2015 looks at Playtime New York. There were great styles presented by the children’s fashion industry heavy hitters; and there were also newer designers presenting debut collections. One of the newer labels on the market, One Black Egg, already has a Fall/Winter 2014 line under their belt, but their Spring/Summer 2015 collection blew me away. Aliona Kononova is the designer behind the label. The brand focuses on “livingwear” and also has a line of adult clothing that is delicious and comfortable. Stirrup leggings, anyone?

The children’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection is artful, simple and totally wearable. The California based brand successfully incorporates artwork by famed artist Gary Baseman into some of the pieces in a manner that is sophisticated and still childlike. Here is a peek at the playful Spring/Summer 2015 collection.
