Mini Cactus Piñatas

by Kathleen Ballos

I’ve been loving the cactus trend that seems to be happening lately, especially since I do not have a green thumb whatsoever. It’s almost Cinco de Mayo, so I thought it would be a lot of fun to make these miniature cacti piñatas to celebrate! Since you pull a string instead of smashing these piñatas, you can keep them up as decorations even after the candy has been eaten!

Craft Night: Floral Design Class

Here are a few photos from our Floral Design Craft Night last week. It was so fun to host Studio Choo at our studio – they’re amazing! Each class started with introductions, and I shared a few ways that Bing image search can help with finding color inspiration. Then, Alethea and Jill taught the basics of flower care and how to build floral arrangements. After their lesson, each person got to choose their own flowers and start designing their own bouquets. The Studio Choo team wandered around and gave advice and instruction. I was super impressed with everyone’s creativity! Thanks to my friend Rebecca Wright for putting the evening together. We’ll be announcing more craft nights soon – so stayed tuned! (And make sure to join our mailing list to get early access to sign up!)

For the goodie bags, Poppies for Grace sent over a confetti balloons and sweetheart gift kits for everyone who attended. We had a few extra, so we used them as decorations.

I love these mini pom pom flowers that ban.do sent over (fits the theme, don’t you think!?) And, Casey D. Sibley sent over a bunch of rad tea towels! See them all here.
