I love having a turquoise wall in my kitchen.
I mean, look at how much fun it is to decorate!
For Clara's first birthday:
I made the clouds out of wrapping paper and just turned it so the pattern faced the other way. Then I crumpled them because it's so flimsy it needed the texture.
Instead of taping it up, I used that sticky gum stuff that you put up posters with.
The garland is made out of scrapbook paper and strung together using dental floss (it's the best for garlands and hanging things because it is strong and is so thin--oh, and it smells minty).
