These adorable tealight holders are perfect for using your scraps of Japanese paper and your rolls of masking tape. Here I used masking tape matching my colored or iridescent range like the little tapes in this lot . It's a DIY that couldn't be quicker and allows you to subtly bring a little color and light to your party table!

Why not slip some sweet treats into origami boxes you made yourself, as little gifts for your guests? Chocolates, little homemade macaroons or even wagashi , these adorable Japanese pastries with varied shapes and colors! The one you see above, in the shape of a white plum blossom, comes from Toraya , a Japanese pastry shop, not far from the Jardin des Tuileries in Paris.

These cherry blossom-shaped bowls, which were used a few months earlier to contain treats for our summer aperitifs, can also find their place on a festive table! This time, I slipped in some Japanese sweets to nibble on: konpeito , these little candies with varied tastes in the shape of spiked balls, and hagashi , dry pastries (as opposed to namagashi, wet pastries ).

Thanks to its varied patterns and colors, Japanese paper allows you to enhance your origami folds and turn them into decorative objects in their own right! For my cherry blossom-shaped cups, for example, I used paper with a fan pattern, screen-printed in shades of purple and midnight blue. Depending on the associations you make, you can succeed, from the same paper, in composing a multitude of colorful ranges depending on the occasion, the season or simply your desires of the moment!
