Jelly Bean Garland

by Kathleen Ballos

Don’t you love the candy selection around Easter time? So colorful and spring-like, I want to buy (and eat!) it all. Conveniently, National Jelly Bean Day is April 22, so it’s a great time to stock up on your favorite jelly beans. I think it would be so much fun to have a jelly bean tasting party, especially with all the gourmet flavors available these days. Make this jelly bean garland to celebrate – you can even hand out the triangles as party favors once the day is over! (PS – Put any extra jelly beans in these fun Easter boxes!)

Easy DIY Streamer Garlands

by Michaela Egger

As an event designer I really love any super-quick and easy project. Jordan’s yellow party – awesome! And I don’t even know how often I’ve used her fringey streamers DIY by now. Whipping up lovely decor in bulk is pretty much one of my favorite things. So, today I wanted to show you one of my go-to DIYs when I need to decorate for a party and don’t have a lot of time. I’ve made bunting the regular way: cutting out shape after shape and attaching it to string. The end result sure is great, but really if you want to decorate a bigger space, it’ll take a long time to craft all those garlands. If you’re anything like me, you’ll love this simple way to create bunting from crepe paper streamers in no time at all!
