The holidays are in full swing and by now you’re probably planning your holiday party too! Whether your holiday plans include a cozy family dinner, a festive work party, or winter wedding reception you’re sure to love this centerpiece idea!
Not only is this centerpiece fun (and not complicated!), it was for a great cause! We were so happy to make these gorgeous additions for Trinity Youth Services, a local foster and family services provider, for their holiday party tables. The holidays is a great time to give back and get involved in your local community and we are so thankful to be able to contribute.
The theme of this party was winter wonderland so the colors were inspired by Frozen! (Sorry, we didn’t mean to get “Let it Go” stuck in your head again!) Since the event was for kids and their families, we decided to go with balloons and fun snowflake wands that the kids could take with them (in the video below, you can glue them into the foam ball instead). For this DIY centerpiece, you'll need 12" latex balloons (slightly smaller than full size, maybe about 8"), balloon sticks, 3/8" ribbons, snowflake ornaments, wooden dowels, tinsel, scissors, a balloon pump, julep cups, small foam balls, and of course plenty of hot glue! For extra sparkle, we put LED cube lights in the center. On the tables, we added satin overlays and a few snowflakes as well.
Keep in mind the height of your arrangements if you’re making centerpieces for an event. A centerpiece should be low, or high, enough for guests to easily talk around it. For example, if your centerpiece is smaller/short, it should be 12 inches or less so your guests can see each other. If your centerpiece is tall, then you’ll want to go 20-24 inches or higher.
