What to do when you have limited space in your home, a limited budget and a party to plan? Transform an unused space with fabric! Garages are the unsung heroes of what would otherwise be a rained out party. By using fabric to cover all the nooks and crannies, you can instantly turn your basic storage space into a party palace.
Despite Halloween being over, I thought it might be fun to share some photos from our last big Halloween party, which was held on Halloween night. You may recall I blogged about these amazing, thematic Halloween parties which we have created throughout the years. After 7 years of amazing events my client and I decided this was to be our grand finale.
Together, we pulled out all of the stops to make this a Halloween to remember.
I come from an immensely talented family - on both Scott’s and my own side. For all of us, Thanksgiving, like Christmas, has always been one of those times when the family comes together and shares their creativity. Whether it be an autumnal wreath on the door or a handmade place setting at the dining table, there is always something interesting being made. I vividly remember my grandmother plunking a box full of crafting supplies in front of my cousin and me to keep us occupied while dinner was being made.
In a recent blog, I posted a link to a fun and creative idea, a DIY solar light. It was a sweet, inexpensive idea for adding lights to a pathway. So when my dear friend Hanna, who appears in many of our YouTube videos, was celebrating her Bat Mitzvah and wanted some sort of walkway lighting, I immediately turned to my own blog for enlightenment.
Nothing says Birthday like a banner! Whether it’s handmade or store bought, a colorful swag of letters just sets the mood! The amazing thing about birthday banners is that they are relatively easy to make, and can be made from a variety of materials that fit everyone’s talents or budget. Admittedly, I’m not much of a seamstress, but I once made super cute swags out of tie dyed bandanas and ribbon. I simply trimmed the bandanas to make sure they wouldn’t fray, and then sewed the triangles between two pieces of ribbon. The effect was exactly what we needed for our sixties inspired birthday...it gave a touch of color and height to the party space without overpowering the room.
