We’re just a few days away from the official start of summer– it’s time to celebrate! We love a good DIY; why not sass up your next soiree with one (or all!) of these summery projects?
Monogram Pinata by Oh Happy Day: Pintatas = required for a summer get-together. Forget the stigma that pinatas are reserved for Mexican fiestas– whip one up for your next big party involving children or extremely drunk and rollicking adults. It’s the perfect way to end an evening or get a party rolling into the wee hours. This project might take a bit of time, but look at how cool it looks! Definitely worth the investment.
Metallic Streamer Cake Toppers by A Subtle Revelry for Project Wedding: If you’re having any kind of cake, pie, dessert spread, dressing up your sweets is an easy way to turn a get-together into a blog-worthy event. Plus, summer demands sparkly, eye-catching details. This project is fairly simple and its impact goes a long way…
Cupcake Liner Backdrop by Confetti Pop: If your party demands a backdrop, this is the perfect one. Bright, quirky, whimsical, and beautiful, this backdrop will definitely be a “wow” piece to remember. Recommended for any kind of shower, engagement party, or even kid’s birthday. How fun would it be to hire a photographer or ask a friend with a great camera to host a photobooth for an hour? If that’s not quite the vibe you’re going for, use this for the backdrop to a dessert spread or dinner buffet! Again, this one is a time commitment, but a very worthwhile one if you’re planning a big to-do.
Two-Tone Balloons by A Subtle Revelry: Super fun. Not a “must have” detail, but a “wow, why didn’t I think of that?” one. These balloons are fabulous, easy to make, and add that spice and spunk any get-together needs. This works well for more detailed parties AND for low-key, casual gatherings. Anything from a first birthday party to a sweet and handmade bridal shower will benefit from this charming DIY.
Giant Fringe Garland by Oh Happy Day: For some reason, this project is my favorite of the lot– these luscious garlands are just so cool and happy! They blow any pre-made crepe paper garland out of the water and are fairly painless to put together. A few strands of these in some bright colors will totally transform a simple party into one of the most memorable of the summer!
