Pinterest Party!

What do you do when you need to make approximately 400 pom-poms for your upcoming wedding ceremony? You host a PINTEREST PARTY!!!

So I invited 7 of my best girl pals over for an afternoon of pom-pom making. The Pinterest inspired invitations I sent out weeks in advance required two things of my guests: 1. Come prepared to get crafty, and 2. Bring a Pinterest inspired dish to pass! 

My lil sis and I spent the afternoon preparing for the party...

 For our dish, we made  a heavenly triple layer cookie, combining a gooey chocolate chip cookie, warm fudgy brownie, and an extra sweet double stuffed Oreo

We also made  a delicious champagne punch!

We may or may not have gone through 4 pitchers of these {dang you, Martha Stewart}!
Inspired by a pom-pom tutorial I found on Pinterest {obviously}, I thought pelting pom-poms at the bride and groom as they walk back down the aisle would make for a festive, fun, playful end to our ceremony.

So I created a thorough tutorial for all the ladies...and for hours we rolled pom-poms!
All of the girls had an amazing time crafting together, sipping on cocktails, and snacking on pinterest recipes! Here is a peak at a few other recipes that came to the party...

Meg made jalapeno poppers!

Brynn and Mary brought a festive sunflower arrangement decoration and champagne, Tiffany brought a cheese platter, and Katrina brought a broccoli and cheese casserole.  YUM.

9 spools of pink yarn, and 3 hours later...

we had a FINAL COUNT of 363 pom-poms!!!

Practicing the toss for the big day!

Great work, friends!! Love you all! 

Post wedding Update:
