{DIY} Quick Party Decor with Glitter Tape

In creating some of the decor items for Suzannah’s Glitz and Glamour 25th Birthday Party I discovered the wonders of glitter tape. AWESOME. 
You can get pre-glittered tape or pre-glittered ribbon to make these quick DIY decor items work for your next shin-dig. If you are using glitter ribbon then use glue or double sided tape to help make things stick. I’ve got two super quick and super easy DIYs for you here. Paired with the pretty sequin vases and you’ve got yourself a Parrrtay. 

Glitter Toothpick Flags How To:

  1. Gather supplies: toothpicks, glitter tape, and scissors.
  2. Cut off a two-inch section of glitter tape.
  3. Press glitter tape on top of each other, sealing it on top of the toothpick. 
  4. Repeat several times to make a set of flagged toothpicks! 
These are great for decking out cupcakes, appetizers, and floral arrangements!

Glitter Tealights How To:

  1. Gather supplies: tealights, glitter tape, and scissors.
  2. Cut off a two-inch section of glitter tape.
  3. Wrap the glitter tape around the metal container of the tea-light candle. Press to adhere.
  4. Repeat several times to make a nice set of candles!
Place in glass tea-light holders around the party venue. It makes for easy, disposable, and inexpensive party decor.

Fall Tradition of the Pumpkin Patch and Toddler Style

We went to the Pumpkin Patch when X was only about two months old. We decided on that trip that the Pumpkin Patch would be a yearly tradition. This year’s trip was even more fun than last year’s trip, because the little guy was totally into it. He was amazed by everything, and everyone, around him.
Plus, I got to dress him up in a super cute hat and scarf. He is my lil’ stud.
Not sure if the clothes he is wearing are still available.
But, the links below go to the sites of the stores I purchased his clothing at!

What is your favorite Fall tradition?

{DIY} Sequin Vase with Floating Flower Centerpiece

I love when I go into a party and I see fresh flowers. But, I also know that fresh flowers can be expensive! Lately, I’ve been really into creating floating floral centerpieces because they are more cost effective and just plain gorgeous.

Yesterday I shared a few photos of my friend Suzannah’s Pink and glamorous 25th birthday party. One of my favorite DIY decor elements was the sequin vases filled with floating flowers.

This simple DIY only cost me around $2 per centerpiece! Using only some round vases from the Dollar Tree, a little glue, a bag of sequins from the local craft store, and a small bunch of roses I was able to create several of these little beauties.

How to create your own sequin vases with floating flowers:

  1. Gather your supplies: 1 vase, glue, paint brush, sequins, water, flower, and scissors. I used Elmer’s glue. Mod Podge would also do well. I also prefer roses for this type of centerpiece, but many other flowers would look just as gorgeous. I just happen to love how the rose looks all opened up and floating in water.
  2. Using a paintbrush, paint a thin layer of glue on the bottoms and sides of the vase.
  3. Pour sequins in vase and shake until covered. Let dry.
  4. Prep flowers by cutting the flowers at an angle at the place that the head of the flower meets the stem.
  5. Pour water into the dried vase. Some of the sequins will come loose and float to about an inch or two from the top of the vase. I like this and left it that way for the party.
  6. Drop the flower head into the water with the petals facing upwards. If you are using a rose and it hasn’t opened up just yet, lightly fluff the petals with your fingers or open the bud with running water. Be careful not to open the bud too quickly, as it may fall apart. 
Have fun creating these fun, inexpensive, and beautiful floral arrangements! I’d love to see a photo if you do this at one of your future events!
