Remember when I was looking for interns a little while back? Well I found not one, but two fabulous ladies to help me out at Snippet & Ink! Let me introduce Jess, our new project designer. When I asked her to put together some fun seasonal projects for us, she created this simply lovely table of boxwood and paperwhites. DIY and budget friendly!
Boxwood monograms are a pretty way to embellish a place setting, and paperwhites are both lovely and budget friendly (we found ours at Stop & Shop, $10 for 3). Boxwood table numbers would be another way to use this idea.
Create a simple centerpiece by clustering votive candles and paperwhites in mixed or matching containers. We used mercury glass vases and votives ($5 to $8, Anthropologie) to add a little sparkle – they would also be lovely take-aways for your guests.
I hope you’re as excited about having Jess at Snippet & Ink as I am! Also, a huge thank you to Rebecca Hansen for the beautiful photos.

Please take note: Boxwood sap can cause minor skin irritation, so you may want to wear gloves when handling it. If allergy is a concern, use another seasonal green or faux boxwood for your monograms.
