Pink and Gold Party Decor DIYs

Paper Pom Poms and Gold Branches

Here's a post from CasaSugar Community member inglenookdecor from the Lovely Little Vignettes group:


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 were glamorous and sweet. And although themes can range from time periods, movies, destinations {really, the options are endless}, we went with a color palette. Gold is glamorous and pink is sweet, so gold and pink it was!
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.

It started with a white branch.

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.

And here's another look

We scattered a few antique mercury candle holders as centerpieces.

See? Easy as 1, 2, 3.
