Spring and Summer bring flowers, birds and (hopefully) nice weather...but they also bring one thing in a huge surplus- celebrations! Weddings are suddenly right around the corner which often means parties, parties, parties! But the celebrations don't stop at bridal showers and bachelorette parties, you can expect a healthy dose of baby showers and birthdays to fill up your calendar these seasons. We've got you covered this What's Up Wednesday 8 ideas perfect for adding a little *extra* to any celebration.
1- Modern Wreath
Celebrations are ALL about details. When you're taking your party to the next level (but not trying to add another zero to the budget) it's good to take a look at your surroundings and hit up the internet. This fun wreath comes in a kit with everything you already need, from this Etsy shop. And we get it- sometimes you want to add other details. We've got a fix for that too- grab Katelyn Lizardi's versatile Butterfly Embellishment die and go crazy.
2- Add A POP Of Personalization
Holy krazy straws, Batman! How cute are these? Although not created with actual Krazy Straws, Kelly from Studio DIY did create something equally epic and we're ALL about it. Nothing says party time like balloons and if you're looking to add a little je ne sais quoi to your balloons, look no further, just head on over to this blog post to see how to recreate the look!
3- Set The Tablescape
WANT. NEED. OBSESSED. Okay, wow, we need to take a moment to breathe, this tablescape just put the stun in stunning - taking us straight to the tropics! When paired up with calligraphy, a dash of metallic and vivid greens, this results in the most trendy of tablescapes. Don't miss out this table setting and some more tips here.
4- Place Settings
Nothing succs about these place settings! Have you been noticing a trend here? Yes, succulents- much like tropical decor- are IN. While these gorgeous plants are used for an amazing and whimsical baby shower, we can't help but think they'd be a great idea for all kinds of celebrations! We even have a die for these cute little holders (which can totally double as favors.) Add a dash of silver, gold or rose gold and you've got yourself a pretty cool party.
5- Marble Pumpkins...What?
Sorry Fall, we're reclaiming the pumpkin in the name of celebrations! If there's something that we love more than new trends is when we can turn a seasonal trend on it's head! Yeah, we're a tad obsessed. Combing two hot trends right now - marble and the look of watercolor- Sara and Melissa from the Alice and Luis Blog created these adorable makes, helping us keep our pumpkins “spiced up” all year long *finger snap, snap, snap.*
6- It’s All About The Angles
There’s nothing basic about this geometry. From stamping the fondant cupcake toppers to creating adorable triangular garlands, this geo-baby shower proves that any theme can be upscaled. Check out all the other little details here.
7- Find Your Sign
Neon signs are everywhere these days, and we aren't complaining. Take it to the next level and add one to your next event like this adorable couple did.
8- Acrylics, Acrylics, Acrylics.
Acrylic has hit the trend scene in a HUGE way. We've seen them on everything from makes to swizzle sticks and we can't get enough. We absolutely love this combination of acrylic chairbacks to add some color to your celebration. But wait...it gets better...see those flowers? Yassssss girl, add flowers, but may we recommend you use David Tutera's flower dies? Hear us out- not only can you make them and save money, but they're SO much easier to stick onto a smooth surface than fresh flowers and it will save you SO.MUCH. FRUSTRATION. Take a look at this awesome party here.
