DIY Fringe Balloons
I just love this simple yet chic DIY for fringed balloons that I found on Glitter Guide! It’s really quite easy to do. They would be perfect for a bridal shower, wedding or festive party! You could use patterned fabric or paper for an interesting effect!
I am super obsessed with these large balloons and the fringe. Can’t wait to make more lovely fringed balloons!
Coral, be still my heart
Coral is a perfect accent color to a Spring or Summer wedding –abundant with bright happiness in varying shades of orange. This amazing color blends well with many summer themes, especially for a wedding down by the beach or lake. Additionally, what is truly unique about this color is its versatility to not only warm and spice up a wedding’s color palette, but it can also be utilized to highlight a more natural and soft wedding theme.
Here’s a gallery of some coral color combos for you to get inspired by!
Let a splash of color take your wedding from ordinary to extraordinary!

Cinco de Mayo Fiesta
Mexican themes are so much fun! Full of color, mexican hats and tequila, of course!
My dessert table (just to curb my sweet tooth) consisted of rice pudding(not pictured), brownie pops and margarita tequila lime cupcakes. The only thing missing was churritos.
Margarita Lime Cupcakes Recipe:
- 3 sticks (12 ounces) butter, softened
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 4 large eggs, at room temperature, plus 1 large egg white
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 3/4 cups flour
- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons whole milk
- Grated peel of 4 limes, plus 1/4 cup lime juice
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
- 2 tablespoons gold tequila
- 1 drop green food coloring
- 1/2 cup large multicolored sugar crystals
- 24 lime wedge candies
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees . Line 2 cupcake pans with baking liners. Using an electric mixer, beat 2 sticks butter and the granulated sugar until creamy. Gradually beat in the eggs, egg white and oil. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix again.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and 1 teaspoon salt. In a large glass measuring cup, stir together the milk, 2 tablespoons lime juice and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. On low speed, mix in one-third of the wet mixture, then one-third of the dry mixture. Repeat twice, ending with the dry mixture. Mix in half of the grated lime peel.
- Fill each baking liner about three-quarters full with batter. Bake until the cupcakes spring back when gently touched, about 25 minutes. Let cool completely, about 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, using the electric mixer, beat the remaining 1 stick butter until creamy. Beat in 1 cup confectioners’ sugar. Beat in the tequila, and the remaining 2 tablespoons lime juice, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, lime peel, 1 teaspoon salt and the food coloring until smooth and creamy. Beat in the remaining 1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar one-third at a time, until just soft enough to spread.
- Spread the frosting on the cooled cupcakes. Add the sugar crystals to a bowl; lay each frosted cupcake on its side in the bowl and gently rotate to form a rim of sugar. Top each cupcake with a lime wedge candy.
For an extra punch, I added tequlia to the cupcake mix. Instead of the sugar crystals, I sliced mini limes for the cupcake topper.
