I love pretty party wares as much as the next girl. OK, OK. Admittedly, I probably love them more than most people. Thinking about pretty decorating ideas for entertaining and parties is, in a nutshell, what I do with about 90% or more of my time. But don’t you just hate getting the house all gussied up for a celebration, putting hours into crafting up the cutest decorations and then having to take it all down to discard or store? Such a bummer! But no worries. Today I’m sharing 10 fun ways to work festive party crafts and decor into everyday! Now you can keep the party going long after the last slice of cake has been gobbled up!
