Thrifty Thursday #57

So I am frantically trying to pull together a tea party for my daughter's "end of co-op" celebration....sometimes I question my sanity when I decide to do these things.


I am just NOT a party planner.....I see cute ideas like tissue paper flowers and when I try to pull it off, it looks more like rumpled tissue paper... does this ever happen to you???


I may be calling in the reinforcements real soon....my mom!


But you all have been crafting and painting and sewing up some amazing projects!


Here are just a few from last week's Thrifty Thursday .....


After some blood, sweat, and a whole lot of scraping, Thrifty Inspirations
second attempt at this side table is beautiful!



It's Overflowing shared how to tint a bunch of bottles that she got 
from Freecycle with food coloring and Mod Podge.



The Inspired Momma used her children's scribbles to create this pretty work of art.



First Home Love Life has a wonderful tutorial for how to make this PB knock-off ruler.



These sweet treats from A Blossoming Life look incredible....
dairy free chocolate banana pops!




Tousled Day whipped up this mailbag using placements and a fabric belt....ingenious!





Forever and a Recipe painted ceramic tile with chalkboard paint to create these cute coasters.





Finally, I just had to include these butterfly cupcakes from Happy Hour Projects.
They are simply adorable!






If you were featured this week, feel free to grab one of my buttons!



Here are some very simple suggestions for the party:
1. Please become a follower of Thrifty Decorating.
2. Be sure to link to your POST and not your blog.
3. Please copy and paste my link button somewhere in 
your post or blog so that others can link back.

bagel question in the comments section
