Stylish Party Decorating On a Budget

Mindy Weiss is a proclaimed celebrity event planner and has appeared on The Nate Berkus Show several times. Although she can style very lavish parties, she came up with a creative tablescape on a budget. Mindy bought paper streamers and did a basketweave pattern for the main focal point of the table and mixed faux with real flowers. Wouldn’t this be a great idea for a child’s birthday party!?


I have to say, I was on a little basket weave kick for a while, which inspired me to come up with this gift wrap. I used the same idea, but with ribbon & found stick on letters (of course the baby’s outfit was grey & yellow).

Have I admitted my gift wrapping obsession yet? Just wait until Christmas!



  1. Wonderful idea and the mamma is going to be thrilled! It’s all about the wrapping to set the stage for what’s in the gift! I’ll join you in the obsession for beautiful gift wrap at Christmas.
