Omiyage sells adorable Japanese goods out of Toronto. Not only do they provide very sweet and personal customer service; they have a great selection of the Japanese paper balloons I mentioned a while back, as well as washi tape (for sweet-looking gift wrapping), paper goods, and various Shinzi Katoh tchotchkes:
|I would frame this Shinzi Katoh postcard and put it on a shelf|
|A few strips of this tape across plain wrapping paper and you're set|
|String these balloons around a room for fall-colored decoration|
The joke is on me for Tessa's birthday balloons, though: Somehow I thought they'd be like giant ocean-themed orbs, big enough to serve as the only decorations. These are mini, but aren't they cute?
|We're going to need some bigger balloons|
|but they'll work as a centerpiece|
