Valentine's Day Inspiration

  • Wedding Wednesday

is not my favorite store in the world…. and I’m sure a lot of you feel the same way. I’m more of a Target girl! However, every now and then I get an idea and Walmart just happens to be the place where these ideas come to life! I wanted to make a Valentines display that was BUDGET FRIENDLY and somewhat easy to make. So I thought about decorating with TISSUE PAPER. Tissue paper is cheap and as I walked into Walmart, the “Valentine’s Day” section caught my eye. I ended up leaving with 8 packages of tissue paper and I spent a total of $7.00 on this project! obviously I used a few things from home that I already owned… but when it comes to

the decor, it’s all TISSUE!  Basically, I just folded the tissue back and forth so that it looked like an accordion! Then, I stapled the middle of the tissue and connected the sides, forming a circle. I made these decorative disks in all shapes and sizes and then just displayed them with a little double sided tape to keep them flat against the table! It’s a fun idea that is MUCH cheaper that buying a ton of flowers! Brides are using tissue paper for ALL SORTS of decor at their wedding these days! As long as there isn’t any chance of rain, I think it’s awesome to use colored tissue paper to add a “pop” of color on the wedding day!



Enjoy this Wedding Wednesday Valentine’s Inspiration and have a fabulous day!!! I’m off to start pre-blogging for WPPI!!

And because he was so patient and didn’t eat all of my tissue paper…Bokeh gets a spot on the blog today. I’m sure he’s thrilled!:)

xoxo, Katelyn

    Katelyn, you are amazing! I love your style! And my favorite part of this entire post is Bokeh! :) What a cutie pie. He cracked me up! Gosh, I want a doggie now! He is exactly the cross-breed that I’ve been wanting for awhile.

    Look at you Miss Creative Pants!!! awwww Bokeh is on the table… you’re a bad mother. Although he does look super cute!!! Maybe he has chronic neck issues or his heads about to fall off, because I don’t think it’s normal for him to tilt so frequently. haha

    Super cute, Katelyn!

    About 70% of the flowers for our wedding were made of tissue paper, scrapbook paper, wrapping paper that was on the gifts we got at showers, etc. It sprinkled on and off throughout the day so we ended up transporting the flowers in boxes and bags–but even in the damp air they held up GREAT!

    The dollar store can also be a great place to find tissue paper, too! And you can make poms (like the one on the left of your mirror) and hot glue pipe cleaner stems to them–they look super cute too. LOVE the look for Valentine’s Day!
