Hooray, we did it! The Pastel Pool Party was a huge hit last night, and though we were terrified it might thunder shower, we managed to escape the rain! While we (im)patiently wait to see photos, we’ll be posting a whole bunch of posts relating to the party with instructions for how to throw your own! Here’s one of my favourites:
With the Pastel Pool Party only days away, things were getting a little crazy around Studio B! To give you an idea of what was going on in our daily lives, we had to rent a van to pick up a massive number of balloons, we’re spent our Saturday making party favours, and there was glitter and confetti everywhere all the time. Basically we were living in a vortex of crazy busy magic making, and though it was a bit stressful, it was mostly just exciting!
We decided pretty early on that glitter and gold would be strong “colour” themes at the pastel pool party, so the next logical step was to figure out that we could glitterize. We decided to paint my bar cart from Ikea and add some gold table setting touches, but we strongly felt that more glitter was necessary. When we came across perfectly milky pastel utensils on a party store road trip, Paige and I immediately knew what we were missing!
Adding some gold sparkle to your party utensils is super easy and fun, and even if things get a little messy they look adorable all the same.
What You’ll Need //
*Plastic party utensils and cups
*Martha Stewart gold glitter
1// Spray each utensil and cup with adhesive and wait until the glue is quite tacky. If you’re planning on actually using the utensils, make sure to cover rims of cups and eating ends of forks with plastic so the adhesive doesn’t touch those areas!
2// Carefully pour the glitter over the areas where you sprayed the adhesive and shake to remove excess
Ta-da! You’ve got yourself some super fancy cutlery and cups that just can’t wait to party!
