    Green Gifts

    Hide

    These mini terrariums make chic table decor when grouped en masse -- and they double as favors, too! Just place sand and rocks in the bottom of a fishbowl votive holder.

    Carefully set small succulents among the rocks -- securing them, if necessary, with toothpicks -- and quench their thirst with a dropper. Bubbleball 4 3/4-inch vase, Save-On-Crafts.com.

  2. Fun Photo Background

    Hide

    A bright sheet or piece of fabric makes a lively backdrop for a professional-style photo shoot. Try hanging it at parties, and give guests a chance to strike a chic pose for the camera.

    Make your photos even more festive by adding seasonal or occasion-appropriate embellishments. For slumber parties, try our Glittered "Candy" Garland.

  3. A Year of Flowers: June

    Hide

    At this time of year, it's tempting to create an everything-in-the-vase display that rivals perennial borders at their June peak. But indoors, simpler can be better. Consider combining just a couple of fine specimens: the amazing varieties of one flower, such as alliums, and the gorgeous foliage of another, such as hosta. We used a fluted white vase to focus attention on subtle color harmonies and contrasting silhouettes. On a practical note, alliums need frequent water changes, so refill the vase daily.

  4. Nutshell Miniature Bowls

    Hide

    As you crack walnuts for pies and stuffing, save the shell halves that remain intact. The miniature "bowls" make natural holders for individual portions of salt and pepper -- especially handy for big gatherings at the table.

    Taming of the Shoe

    Hide

    Brides-to-be have a new reason to kick up their heels. Known for her winsomely feminine dresses and shoes, New York City-based designer Lela Rose has found a way to make her high-end creations more accessible: She's launching a line of wedding heels and flats with Payless. The beribboned pumps, kitten heels, and other classic incarnations will be sold for $45 to $50; most of them can be dyed at no additional cost in one of 64 fairy-tale colors, like the yellow, blue, and purple shades shown here.

    Floral Paper Fans

    Hide

    Outdoor weddings are especially beautiful, but they can also be uncomfortably steamy. To keep your guests from overheating, pass out handmade fans -- trust us, they'll be grateful. Ours features a floral motif on one side and a quote from Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" on the other: "My bounty is as boundless as the sea, my love as deep."
