A Rad Mag Party

With so many people talking about their new year resolutions, I couldn't wait until "Merry Monday" to post this party. Seems like "spend less", "budget better", "be more green" are common goals, especially if you often play the hostess. Regularly hosting parties can become quite expensive and that's why it's important to re-use what you have or find creative ways to save money... enter this party!

This was a New Year's Eve party done by Sharon of Cupcakes & Cutlery and Lauren of A Fabulous Fete. Get this–the favors, party blowers and ALL the decorations were made using the pages of Real Simple magazine. And everything looks GREAT! Look at the amazing things they came up with!

Yes, cutting circles, etc for these projects will take you some time, but plan ahead, do it gradually in front of the TV, and the time will pass. The money you save will be totally worth it, and imagine what a great conversation maker just your decorations will be for your guests!
