Paper Pom Poms and Gold Branches

Posted By inglenookdecor on Mar 18, 2012 at 5:05PM

Sometimes the easiest and simplest DIY's are your best option when designing or decorating an event. So when my friend Carmela asked me to decorate her soiree for Austin In Style Weddings and Inspiration a day before the event {and only a few days afte my three week Holiday vacation}, I happily obliged. After all, it's as easy as 1, 2, 3...

1. Have a theme.


I just asked her what is the feel she would like to have for the little soiree. The adjectives she chose, Glamorous + Sweet. And although themes can range from time periods, movies, destinationa {really, the options are endless}, we went with a color palette. Gold is glamorous and Pink is sweet so gold and pink it is!

2. Use what you already have.


All we needed were branches {which we alread have}, gold spray pink, pink gift tissue paper, candles galore and sweets.

Then some gold spray paint.

We also spray painted the small shades gold, made pink pom poms and adorned a hurricane with a chevron pattern.


3. Install


Here is my intern Rachel joyfully fluffing the pink poms poms after tying them to a chandelier.

We scattered a few antique mercury candle holders as centerpieces.
