Parasols: a Feminine Touch
August 26, 2014

Whether you're on the beach or in the country, parasols add a perfect feminine touch to your wedding, party, or family photo shoot. They add a burst of color and contrast that catches the eye. Little girls love them, but big girls love them even more!

Ideas to incorporate parasols:
  • Have the bride and/or her bridesmaids carry them for wedding photos
  • At your next family photo shoot let the little girls play with them, you will be sure to get lots of natural smiles.
  • Use them in senior portraits or engagement photos.
  • Have them available at your next outdoor party on an especially sunny day.
  • Hang them from the ceiling as decoration.
  • Use them in your next photo booth.

Here at Just Artifacts we have silk, premium silk, and paper parasols in any color that you need. Be sure to take a look!

For the Birthday Boy
August 19, 2014

Birthday parties can be very overwhelming. First you have to plan the party, invite everyone and prepare everything, throw the party, clean up, and don't forget the thank you cards! Just Artifacts makes the planning a lot more fun and stress free. We're your one stop shop for all your party needs.

We decided to go with a boy theme for this party. We chose the colors green and blue with stripes and polka dots for the patterns. By choosing two color and two patterns we were able to mix and match to coordinate the entire party setting.

For the overall setting: paper lanterns, jumbo balloons, and a pennant bunting banner.

For the cupcakes we used paper straws with washi tape for the flags and cupcake wrappers.

For the drinks we used mason jars with daisy lids and paper straws.

We used wooden cutlery and paper napkins to continue with our green and blue theme.

Paper treat bags with washi tape filled with your favorite surprise! Don't forget the pinwheels!

We hope this layout gives you some inspiration for the little (or big) birthday boy in your life!

Personalize your back to School Supplies
August 12, 2014

New class lists are posted and school shopping is in full swing. Washi tape is your number one trick to customize your child's school supplies. Everyone will come to school with #2 pencils sharp and ready for learning so make your child's pencil stand out from the rest with Just Artifacts' collection of washi tape.

Washi tape is easy to use. You can either decorate your supplies or just stick a small piece of tape on them with your child's name or initials on it. When your child gets to school, they will be able to identify their own supplies and keep them close at hand. Be sure to let your child pick from all the fun colors and patterns we have to offer. We have everything from stars to stripes to polka dots!
