DIY: Paper Pleated Flowers + Party Round Up

Here is the re-cap from the "Headbands and Happy Hour" event my sister hosted for IHOD:) It was so fun for me to create the decor, accessories, and drinks. I wanted to share with you this fun DIY I did that can be adapted for any occasion! ....

I combined two DIY's. I created the pleated flowers via Shop Ruche's directions. (Give or take. Made a few minor changes) I then attached them to hemp string for a garland effect. This was inspired by Fee-Amore's Post.

For drinks we served a few of Imagine's lovely Weekend Warm-Ups including Pomegranate Margaritas and Strawberry Champagne. Divine. Thanks Jamie!

It is taking me forever to squeeze in time to post all the new items in my shop. One by one!

BY THE WAY- The Michael Buble concert was unlike any concert I have ever been to. Phenomenal. HIGHLY recommend seeing him live someday. He has a God given talent that is undeniable. I am so thankful to my hubby for such a sweet birthday/anniversary gift:)
