So these are a few favorite things I have come across recently that I just loved and have become my faves. Now get your imagination caps on!

Japanese paper tapes.

 tape multicolored My Favorite Things - Aislinn EventsSuper colorful and fun. I found these on Happy Tape and there are so many colors and patterns you are sure to find something to suit.

Pails, buckets, whatever your preference is to call them.

Use large ones as rustic wine or champagne buckets, mini ones for favors, how cute would it be to have your flower girl dropping petals from her little bucket! to simply hold pens for your guestbook, as your escort cards {plant sprouting herbs in each} or just for flowers like this:
