In honour of the fantastic, inspirational and recently-wrapped-up Yayoi Kusama exhibit at Toronto's Art Gallery of Ontario, we decided that our first DIY project just had to be a Yayoi Kusama inspired party.  To put our own twist on it, we decided to work with pastels..because, well, they're so pretty!  We picked our Oh Happy Day basic tableware to use as a base, and sticker-dotted everything!!  Important Note:  We don't recommend eating super mushy or liquidy foods off the sticker dots, but generally kid-friendly party foods such as sandwiches, pizza, and dry treats and some veggies and fruits should be fine for short periods of time.

Yayoi Kusama Inspired Party Materials

*Basic solid or ombré, unpatterned tableware (We used our Oh Happy Day solid and ombré tableware and Meri Meri cutlery and napkins).  We picked the:

     -Oh Happy Day Large Plate in Ballet

     -Oh Happy Day  Rainbow Ombré Party Cups

     -Meri Meri Wooden Cutlery in Mint

     -Meri Meri Classic Pastel Cocktail Napkins

*My Little Day Light Blue Polkadot Straws

*Solid coloured tablecover (We picked white)

*Sticker Dots in your chosen colour scheme in varying sizes and colours.  We purchased ours from Etsy at the Squish n Chips shop, but you should be able to easily find sticker dots at dollar or craft stores.


Place sticker dots randomly, varying sizes and colours as you go. We found it visually appealing to place dots of a different colour than the tableware (i.e. Mint dots on pink plates, rather than pink dots on pink plates).  Enjoy!
