Inspiration of the Week: Confetti


Confetti…symbolic of fun, happiness, and celebration.  Inspiration is everywhere, but leave it to me to find it in a slice of Funfetti birthday cake.  I am usually a stickler for making things from scratch, but “if it ain’t broke…”  It is undeniable that this cake is yummy, but if you think about it, it really doesn’t taste all that different from other boxed cake mixes.  This cake is special because of the edible confetti (also known as sprinkles) scattered throughout.  Coincidentally, I have recently come across a few fabric samples that remind me of this colorful sprinkling.

There are so many ways to incorporate these colorful flecks of fun into your space…furniture, pillows, drapes, lampshades, and so much more.  Confetti is playful and can add a bit of whimsy.  I think we all need a little more confetti sprinkled into our lives.

And just for fun, check out these confetti-filled projects  from one our favorite DIY ladies, Brit Morin:
