Flamingos & Pineapples Weaving Craft Party

We have been seeing a ton of flamingo parties lately (we even threw one ourselves!) and pineapples have been a huge trend this summer! Since both are tropical, it makes perfect sense to combine them and create one big stylish Flamingos & Pineapples Weaving Craft PartyAshley Carson of Ashley Thunder Events hosts monthly craft parties for whoever signs up (an idea I just love), and this month’s party featured wall weaving! She also recently hosted this DIY Dreamcatchers party — sign me up for the next one! ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Brightly colored honeycombs & pinwheels cluster with pineapple poms over the fireplace
– Amazingly detailed flamingo & pineapple cookies + pipe cleaner flamingo topped toothpicks
– DIY potato stamped pineapple tablecloth + lush pineapple floral centerpieces
– ‘You are the pineapple of my eye’ calligraphy print + pineapple tops decorated drink dispensers

Pink & Gold Confetti Bridal Shower + DIY Party Decor

Earlier this summer, Jacque made some DIY centerpieces and decorations for her friend’s pink and gold bridal shower that turned out so super cute and are also budget-friendly (yay!). She wasn’t able to photograph the party, so I asked her to bring one of the centerpieces in afterwards so we could still share it with you guys. That’s one of them above, in case you were wondering. ;)  And the flowers are made out of coffee filters – how awesome is that?!

She also incorporated some of the elements from our Hostess INK Confetti Bridal Shower Collection into the party, so we decided to set up a little post-party inspiration gallery to highlight some of our favorite DIY party decor tips & tricks that work for all sorts of occasions. Here goes!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– DIY coffee filter flowers (with a mix of plain & dyed filters) + golden pom centers
– Simple white gift boxes embellished with decorative paper, washi tape and baker’s twine
– “Love is Sweet” napkin wraps + a gold chevron paper table runner & tray liner
– Tissue confetti decorated frames + DIY tissue tassel chair backs & garlands
– Plastic champagne flutes decked out with gold bases, pink rhinestones, & personalized party flags

If you’ve followed HWTM for a while, chances are good that you’re very familiar with the good ol’ $0.99 Ikea Tolsby frame. The ones pictured here are dressed up for the occasion with gold spray painted bases + a band of glitter tape.

Photos are the perfect way to personalize any event! We just added a few pieces of tissue confetti + a party circle to make this everyday gold frame (above) match the party’s confetti theme.

DIY Tutorial: Color Blocked Drawstring Favor Bags

I’ve always been a fan of the color-blocked and paint dipped looks, but even more so when they’re EASY to create! These color-blocked favor bags are exactly that… all you need are a few basic craft materials + plain drawstring muslin bags (which I bought here).

This look is versatile enough to work with almost any party theme, but we added the party circles and square favor tags from our Swim Party Collection to customize them for a recent poolside blogger event and a backyard swim party. And for the inside of the bags? Swedish Fish, of course! ;)

When it comes to featured party submissions, one of the biggest issues we see time and time again is poor photo quality. This can be heart-breaking because we know how much time & energy goes into making these parties so beautiful (trust me, we know!), but it’s hard to properly see all that creativity through […]
