Shop Darcy's Daisy Party on OpenSky

Posted by

In my 17 years at Martha Stewart Weddings, a wedding that stands out in my mind as a favorite was one of the first weddings we ever featured, Page and Adrian. I call it the "daisy wedding" for all of the great floral details. There's something about daisies that I have always loved (maybe that's why my daughter is named Daisy!). So, I'm very excited to be launching the "daisy party" today, my first sale on OpenSky. When planning a party, or a wedding, I always start with a theme and color palette, and the daisy was perfect, as was its yellow and white color scheme. (For more great yellow and white ideas, click here.)

The sale is filled with all the elements you need to bring the daisy theme to life for your celebration, from flower-shaped cookies and stickers to paper daisies, materials to make place cards, invites, favors, and thank-you notes. You'll also find yellow and white entertaining goodies like linen napkins, candy, banners, and balloons. There are even summer-inspired ice cream flavors as well as some great clip art paper runner and place mats from our current DIY issue. Check out the sale for for your wedding, bridal shower, engagement party, day-after brunch or even just a hostess gift.

Scroll through these photos to get inspired and be sure to tell me what you think by tweeting to @darcymiller with the hashtag #darcyparty.

I would love to see how you incorporate the daisy theme into your big day. Remember: "He loves me, he loves me not, he loves me, we tied the knot."

P.S. I'll also be doing a Twitter chat on Wednesday, July 25th from 1 p.m.-2 p.m. EST. Just follow the hashtag #darcyparty to participate and you could win some amazing daisy gifts!

I strung up these festive tissue daisies (in the sale) when I had my daughter’s first birthday party. I really love how they turn any space into an instant party. 
You can string them into one garland, or hang them individually at different lengths for a cute daisy effect.

(Jars, straws, and napkins included in sale.)

These pretty yellow parasols are such a fun way to keep guests cool and shaded. I embellished the plain yellow with some white cut-out petals to make my flower girl look as cute as a daisy. It's even a cute project for the kids to work on at the party! Get the how-to here: http://ow.ly/con2Y

From our own Martha Stewart Crafts line, I used this daisy edge and punch to create invitations, envelopes, place cards, menu cards, thank-you notes, and more. The edger punch makes great borders for cake stands, seen in other images. All included in sale.

With this kit, you’ll be ready to assemble some fantastic party favors of jelly beans, sour balls, gum balls—and we even have the bags ready for you! My tip: Stay away from melty chocolate if you’re having outdoor summer entertaining! These candies will hold up to the heat. They're served on one of my favorite Crate & Barrel trays.

Providing shade at an outdoor party is important in the summer. This fabulous tent is from my favorite source, Sperry Tents, and I hung some tissue daisies (in the sale) at different lengths.
