I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love popcorn as a snack. And it’s made even more fun when it’s jazzed up for a party or special event. And the good news is that it’s not too hard.

Mini Piñata Garland

Mini Piñata Garland -- a diy project on The Thrifty Ginger

I know that it’s September and I should probably start doing some fall projects, but I’m just not ready. I want to still wear shorts, eat ice cream, and go swimming. It’s technically still summer for another week or two, anyways.

What you need to do the week before your wedding

What you need to do the week before your wedding

Since I kept so much of our wedding planning a surprise, I have lots to share with you now! This summer I’m going to be doing Wedding Wednesdays, where I blog about a different project or element of our wedding each week. This way I can share all our DIY elements and what I’ve learned without completely overtaking The Thrifty Ginger. Since I’m waiting on my professional photos, I figured I’d kick off the series with a post about what you really need to do the week leading up to your wedding—besides getting your nails done.

What you need to do the week before your wedding

The two weeks before our wedding were quite stressful. George and I were at our wits end trying to organize everything, finish projects, and get in touch with all of our vendors. Here are a few things that helped me keep my sanity in the week before the wedding.

This past weekend I was lucky enough to have a bridal shower and bachelorette party thrown in my honor. And I’m serious that I feel so lucky and loved. It was an awesome day filled with many lovely ladies.

We started out at a wonderful luncheon hosted by George’s Aunt. My Mom came into town, along with aunts, cousins, and good buddies that could make it. We ate and drank to our hearts content and then it was the present show.

DIY New Years Eve Party Hats // Via The Thrifty Ginger

New Years Eve is just around the corner, so I had to prepare for the celebration! I made my own party hats out of discarded Christmas wrapping.

Print out party hat template

For a shape, I started with Martha Stewart’s template for party hats. I didn’t have legal sized paper, but instead used scrapbook paper that I cut down. For colors, I used a white polka dot on black paper and a white sparkle paper. I resized the template to fit my 8 X 12 paper and printed it on the backside of the sheets.
