What is an appropriate gift? Can you bring a guest? Answers to these questions and more!
Earlier this month, we here at My Paper Shop wrote an article answering some of the most common questions that people have when they’re hosting a graduation party.

When it comes to party decor, there are few decorations that are more effective or more versatile than party streamers.

Even as adults, streamers are nearly limitless with the amount of creations that can come from them and they are an essential for any great party.
These fun and festive ribbons come in a number of different sizes, patterns and colors, allowing them to be used for virtually any kind of decorating—baby showers, birthday parties, graduation events, bachelorette parties, etc. However, if you really want to show off your party decorating skills, here are a few unique DIY decor projects that you can recreate at home using party streamers.
