BirthdayLISS: My Favorite DIY Birthday Candles

Nothing quite makes a birthday celebration complete like blowing  out some candles!  Whether the number of candles depicts your age or not, this activity is hardly ever met with resentment!  I always try to keep a few different types on hand for birthdays and have been wanting more unique options (not to mention that handmade touch!).  I've listed a few of my favorites below so it can spark some help for any upcoming birthdays in your life!

DIY Blanket Tags (Re-visited)

Remember this post when I showed about the blanket tags I made for a recent wedding?

And promised to update with a picture of how they were set out?

The perfect accessory for a wedding that promises a chilly night.
So inexpensive, simple and personalized!  Nobody needs to know they were made in your living room ;)

See-- I always keep my word...
and I promise I WILL be back soon!

…Still here!

I never realized how much work blogging was until I stopped.  Suddenly so much free time!  Which was necessary with a cross-country move and all, but I'm back!

Since I'm now residing in Southern Calfiornia, I'm going to be focusing Partyliss more on the items I make, still mixing in Parties/Weddings that I adore and inspire me.  I also noticed during this break that the blogs I keep up most with are ones that share their personal lives as well.  I figured this is a perfect way to let everyone know what's going on with my life out here-- I hope you all enjoy hearing about it more!

Also on the agenda-- decorating our new home.  I'm a huge fan of before/afters of spaces and decor as well (all kind of mixes together with events!) so I'll be showing how we do it all!

Ready for the ride?  Let's do this!
