Transform simple clear vases into boldly patterned containers by inserting cut-to-fit pieces of wallpaper inside. Place a smaller container inside the paper-lined vase to hold water and fresh-cut flowers.

Cut floral wallpaper or wrapping paper into colorful, disposable placemats. Mix and match to create a casual, charming setting.

Shop Talk: For great wallpaper, check out Walls—The Colour Store, SLC.
