DIY Drink Stirrers

Just in time for July 4th, I did a fun DIY project ... Drink Stirrers! Inspired by the hushedCOMMOTION flowers! 

You will need:

- Three colors of silk organza (one should be printed). 1/2yrd each. 

- Wooden skewer sticks (like for kebabs) 

- Twine

- Glue gun

- Scissors

You can create your own stencils for the circles by using a thick card stock paper and using circular items from around your house to trace with. Cups, bowls, rolls of tape...  

The diameters I used were: 3 3/4", 3", 2 1/2".

To create the ruffles, use the two step folding process pictured above, then hot glue the end so that they don't unfold.

Fill a glass, and enjoy! 

You can also use your festive stirrers as a skewer for lemon and lime slices!

Top of the Garden: Wedding Event

Recently, I had the honor of participating in a wonderful wedding event called “Skyline In Full Bloom” held at the oh-so-beautiful event space, Top Of The Garden, here in Manhattan.

I had such a fun time sourcing vintage glass wear to use at my booth! The vendors present and all the brides and industry professionals who came couldn’t have been more incredible! What an exceptional group.

Roey of, Roey Mizrahi Events, was the fearless planner behind the whole event and was such a joy to work with - talented and hard working! I highly recommend checking her out ladies. A big thank you to Top Of The Garden for hosting, and Allan Zepeda for taking these stunning pictures!

Stay tunned for a Wedding Inspiration shoot done at Top Of The Garden, shot by Amber Gress and incorporating all of the vendors at the event!
