DIY Harry Potter Wreath

Hi Steffi, I accomplished some goals this weekend! I pretty much ignored what I normally do/need to do on the weekend and I spent my time doing only things that I could cross off my list. Here’s what I did!

#87. Make a wreath

I cut strips of tulle about 2 feet long.

I tied the strips of tulle all the way around, alternating colors.

I put some craft glue on the backside to keep the tulle from undoing and sliding around the foam ring. It dries clear!

Katie’s Bridal Shower!

Hi Steffi, here’s some fun pictures of the party we threw for Katie’s shower last weekend! It was elephant themed with lots of Tiffany blue and gray. It was pretty darn cute and lots of fun and most importantly, Katie loved it!

Fancy mimosa bar! I crocheted the little elephants banner and found the chalkboard signs in the $1 section at Target. We had tasty cucumber water and pink lemonade and lots of different juices for the mimosas!

Cute little treats and snacks! Mini pancake stacks with shots of syrup, ants on a log, and two different kinds of puppy chow. We had little elephants on top of the pancake toothpicks and sprinkled all the tables with elephant confetti! You can find the toothpicks on Etsy here and the confetti here.

IMG954736We took lots of ideas from pinterest and one of them was the ombre balloons and tulle tied around the strings. It was a lot of work but totally worth it; everyone was so impressed by it!

Everyone got a plastic champagne flute for their mimosas and we had them all sign a bottle for Katie in silver and gold sharpie.

We played games like pin the mustache on Andrew and had a Project Runway competition of toilet paper wedding dresses. These were hilarious! Thanks pinterest!
