Hooray for event planning! I’ll admit that I didn’t really do much of the planning for this event but I did try to make sure that the details were Pinterest worthy! 🙂
Here are some of the little touches that I added to make the event memorable.
The Chalk Board
Writing on chalk boards can be difficult but with a little practice and a special reflections brand chalk stick, I’ve pretty much got it down pat. This was a great way to greet the guests as they approached the venue and also to reassure them that they were at the right place.
The Dessert Bar
I was going for a rustic garden look so I mixed wood with fresh flowers as well as many beautiful desserts and treats. And of course I had to sneak in a little rhyme, “love is sweet please take a treat”.
The Bubbly Bar
Since this venue is an old home, I thought it was a good idea to spruce it up with some more modern and fun decor, thus distracting from the dark vibes in certain areas. I mean, take away the balloons and the banner and this could be a set from American horror story. A little glitter can work wonders!
Check out my last DIY blog to see how I made the banner!
So there you have it, focus on the details and it will be a picture perfect event!
With the sudden drop in temperature, I had the urge to decorate for the upcoming season. Shopping around last week, I noticed there were already a lot of fall decorations displayed in the stores. Whilst trying to find a little something to spice up our new apartment, I couldn’t help but look at these small pointless pieces of decor and think that I could make something that looked better and costed less. The imitation flower aisle was filled with lots of beautiful autumn colors, different shades of orange. red and yellow. The flowers were basically screaming for me to turn them into a wreath, so I grabbed 4 small bundles of different flowers at 97 cents each and one large bouquet of mixed flowers for about $5. I got a small grapevine wreath, a mini hot glue gun and two different types of ribbon which I thought might match well with the flowers.
Here’s what you’ll need if you’d like to make one of your own:
P.S. I wrapped my wreath with the ribbon before I started since I wasn’t sure if I would have enough flowers, but I ended up having more than enough so this was basically pointless other than the fact that it may help the flowers stay in place longer.
I hung the wreath with a 3M command brand damage free hanging hook so that I will be able to pull it off without damaging the door when we move out.
I hope this post will inspire someone to make a wreath of their own or at least get someone excited to start decorating for the holidays! If you have any questions feel free to ask. Thanks for reading 🙂
