Love Is In The Air – Operation Shower Event

Operation-Shower-Love-Is-In-The-Air

Operation Shower has done it again, with the help from creative guru The TomKat Studio, in transforming tables and event space for this “Love is In The Air” event.

There are so many gorgeous details to this chocolate brown, khaki, and white party that would be just as perfect for a Vintage Anniversary party or Valentine’s Day party. We especially oohed and awed over that mouth watering dessert table and hot air balloon centerpiece constructed out of a blumebox! Catering to the vintage theme, each table was a collection of unique and different items that all tied in with one another perfectly!

Now, I have had my share of attempts in making hot air balloons out of blumeboxes, none of which you will find on our Ideas In Blume Blog, because they were just that…attempts! The key to this successful DIY to others I have tried, is the paper lantern. The rigid make up of the lantern allows for easier construction, than that of a balloon.

What you will need: 1x blumebox (4″ or 5.5″ cube will due), 4 x dowels (12 “long), 4x satin bows, satin ribbon, decals, 1 x paper lantern (6″-8″)

1)Open blumebox till bottom locks. You will not need plastic bag for this, so either fold and place on the bottom of blumebox or do not use at all.

2)Wrap blumebox with satin ribbon to suit. If using, adhere decal on top of the ribbon.

3)Hot glue a bow to each dowel.

4)Hot glue the bottom part of dowels and attach to the inside corners of the blumebox.

5) Place/rest paper lantern between the four glued dowels. Bows should be on outside of dowel.
