Planning a Party?

With holidays around the corner, there is plenty to celebrate! To help spark some ideas of your own, here are ways customers have used wire card holders at their parties:

Adysen's birthday Celebration - wire card holders

These photos are from 2-year old Adysen's birthday party. Whatever the event you're celebrating, wire card and photo holders can add some fun decoration or direction for your guests.

If you’re featuring a main dish, desserts, or drinks as a theme to your party, consider decorating your table with buffet labels for the variety of the featured refreshment. For example, if you’re having a hot chocolate party, label peppermint hot chocolate, vanilla hot chocolate, and caramel and honey hot chocolates, etc. Or if you’re having pies for dessert label the banana cream pie, the pumpkin pie, the pecan pie, etc.

Homemade Icecream Labels - wirecardholders.com

Recipe Card Holders that make preparing Holiday Treats and Meals a little easier

Happy Thanksgiving! We hope everyone enjoyed their weekend with family, friends, and good food.

Delcious Homemade Pumpkin Cup Cakes -  Wire Card Holders

BreAna's Delicious Homemade Pumpkin Cup Cakes

One of the troubles we stumbled across this weekend as we prepared our Thanksgiving meal was the clutter created from all the ingredients sprawled across the kitchen counter. With several side dishes and treats being prepared at once, it was easy to lose our recipe cards under the clutter. And since we have a whole new holiday month ahead of us, filled with plenty of baking, testing new recipes, and entertaining family and friends, I thought to suggest one of our favorite products that actually doubles as a recipe card holder and Christmas tree ornament.

Heart Photo Holder Ornament - Wire Card Holders

Hook this card holder to your kitchen cabinets to hold your recipe cards while cooking all year round, then use it to decorate your Christmas tree during the holidays.

The Heart Recipe Card/Photo Holder Ornament also makes a great gift for avid bakers. Pair a couple recipe card holders with a set of blank recipe cards to gift to all the great cooks in your life.

What to do with Old Christmas Cards

Alton recently found a great summary for what to do with old Christmas cards that suggested saving your Christmas cards received during the holiday and reusing them to decorate the next year. Some of the suggestions were to put old cards on the refrigerator, tape them to doors and the woodwork of the doorway, and using them to decorate the tree. This sparked some great ideas of our own, and of course, we thought to share.

For this Season’s Christmas Cards, We Suggest:

You can use Christmas Card Holders to display Holiday Greeting Cards from this season. Gradually add the cards and photos from your friends and family to the greeting card holder as you receive them during the Holiday Season. Choose from the Curly Wire Card Holder, the Small Wire Wreath Card Holder, the Desktop Photo Holder, or another one of our Christmas Card Holders, and use them throughout the whole year to hold paper keepsakes like family photos, birth announcements and wedding invitations.

As for past Holiday cards, you can re-purpose them and use them in festive Christmas Projects to decorate your home and use for gifts.

3 Ways to Reuse Last Year’s Christmas Cards:

Christmas cards can be used as decorative borders in a picture frame.

1. Create decorative photo boarders. Often times, Christmas Cards are images or designs that can be used as decorative boarders around framed pictures. This can be a great way to display past Christmas Photos. Just cut a square to fit your photo and frame the picture.

Unique Handmade, Handcrafted boutineers and wedding flowers Tutorial - Wire Home Decor Weddings

Use ribbons, beads, and feathers that correspond with your wedding colors and the outfits you've picked for your groomsmen and bridemaids.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Tools: scissors, hot glue gun
  • Materials: ribbon, feathers, beads, felt, and your choice of clip for however you decide to incorporate your flowers,whether it be a hair clip, a boutonnière pin, headband, clasp, etc.
Unique Handmade, Handcrafted boutineers and wedding flowers Tutorial - Wire Home Decor Weddings

(1) Cut a small circle from your felt. (2) Using the hot glue gun, adhere your feathers to the felt in a circle, each pointing outward. (3) Next, create a few loops with your decorative ribbon to your liking. and glue them to the back of your feathers. (4) Flip your flower so that the felt piece is facing you, and glue your beads over the felt. (If you buy a strand of beads, keep them on the string while you place them into the hot glue and snip the ends once the beads are in place. Otherwise, you can sprinkle the beads to cover the glue and shake the excess from the flower.)

Now, depending on how you’ll be using your flower, the final step is to glue it to the clip of your choice or grab a boutonnière pin to stick it with. If you’re using a hair pin or plastic/metal headband, consider wrapping the pin or band in ribbon to created a more finished look.

And, since this is more of a girly flower, I’ve also included instructions for this simple boutonnière.

(1) Shape your ribbon into an accordion and glue the loops in place. (2) Add some small detail with a line of beads. (3) incorporate the tips of 2-4 feathers behind the ribbon (4) and add a little accent ribbon to complete the flower.

Note: After reading through my suggestions, maybe they will spark some ideas of your own. Get creative! Use whatever materials you think would look good! You’re definitely not limited to the materials I suggest.
