Disco flower

Remember way back when I posted about bringing Small Comforts? Petite gifts for no reason other than to bring a sparkle to someone's day. Something so special that it's giving is unmistakable in it's message............I am thinking of you today. It can be a happy day or a sad one, but when I saw this simple, yet sparkly idea  by London stylist and author Sania Pell of the blog At Home I knew I should pass this disco-inspired idea along. Just one of many stylish and beautiful ideas on her gorgeous site and blog gift wrapping too. Leave it on the doorstep of someone recuperating I hope your days sparkle again soon or the frazzled bride who is on the countdown to the big day Your big day will sparkle with love. You know the reasons, what friend needs a surprise bit of sparkle soon? Isn't this a gorgeous idea?

See the sequin tutorial here

  3. Oh Sande,
    Please come and live near me !! What I wouldn't give to see this little gift in my doorstep. It's beautiful. XXXX

  4. It seems like our minds find the same paths at times. Just yesterday, I gathered up all of my vintage vases and selected the right one for a personalized flower arrangement. Aaron's grandmother is in the hospital and we wanted to brighten up her day.
    I totally agree that we should use our talents in ways to comfort and encourage those who need it. I love the simplicity of this clear vase with floating sequins...I'm making a mental note for this one, for I am sure one day someone I know will need a little extra sparkle.


  5. May this day and all the rest bring sparkles to make you smile, laugh and love.
