A little elbow grease and some good papers can help you create something extra special for any event. Angie certainly proved this as she sat down and created these twelve unique centerpieces for her daughter’s engagement party.

Inspired by Kaisercraft’s Tropicana paper collection, Angie used tropical colors and hibiscus flowers to evoke a seaside getaway. Here are some photograph’s of Angie’s progress as she dedicated several days for this project.

A dozen square trays were painted in colors that coordinated with the different designs of the paper. They were then decoupaged and accented with Distress Ink.

Little cut-out postcards stamps and glitter embossing were used to decorate the floor of each tray. Ikea lanterns were altered with Ranger’s Vintaj Patina in colors that match each tray. The lanterns were then set in the middle of the trays.

The centerpieces were finished off with candles, paper hibiscus, stones, twigs, and pieces of coconut husk.


The tropical getaway feel carries over to the bride’s hair ornament. The Sospeso Trasparente dimensional decoupage technique was used to shape the hibiscus cut from paper.

The brooches for the important ladies in the family match the bride’s hair clip.

Angie certainly did an excellent job with these projects and we hope the engagement party is a blast.
