It’s still summer! Bees are still buzzing from bloom to bloom. And although they may not be fragrant all of the floral patterned products that we carry at the store are sure to entice.

Birds the Word

Charley Harper - Clair de Loon

Charley Harper – Clair de Loon

Did you know that Ontario’s national bird is the Common Loon? These stealthy fish fetchers are responsible for those erringly beautiful calls over lakes and ponds on grey misty mornings. If loons aren’t your thing, fear not! Here at The Paper Place, we have loads of fine-feathered friends for even the most discerning ornithologist.

No collection is complete with out crane origami, of course.

Creative Party Planning: Nautical Theme Party

July 23rd, 2015

flags2

After the success of this past New Year’s Eve Masquerade Photobooth, good friends Evan and Rich asked me to help them decorate their Palmerston apartment once again for their annual nautical themed summer costume party. With so many nautical gems hidden throughout The Paper Place I couldn’t wait to bring them all together and help make their apartment a little bit more sea-worthy.

jugs

Blue triangle flag bunting ($5.95) was strung above the bar area, while our Italian Decorative Papers ($4 per 19.5 x 27″ sheet) were used to add detail to drink dispensers.

wave

Wave motifs were cut from some of our Obonai Feather and Momi papers ($4-4.50 per 21 x 31″ sheet) and taped behind the couch to create a fun backdrop for guests sitting on the sandy coloured cushions.

boat

Our Sailing Kite (Yes, it’s a kite!) acted both as a handy costume prop and decorative centrepiece ($34.95).

7

Using a glue stick I adhered one of our gold anchor dresden trims ($7.95 for a pack of 22) to a piece of Katazome-shi paper and washi taped it to the door so guests could easily find the party. This paper would later inspire a knot-tying contest between hosts on the apartment’s upper deck.

wall

Polaroids hung on a string with our mini clothes pegs ($4.95 for a pack of 50) were backed by sheets of our tall ships gift wrap ($4 per 20 x 30″ sheet) in the hallway so party guests could relive memories of years prior.

Interested in hosting your own nautical party? Be sure to pay us a visit. There is a pirate’s bounty of treasure and inspiration to be found.
