Oh Autumn, you’re so pretty!
I am seriously not loving the cold weather coming in. Everyday has been cloudy and rainy and Thursday we saw our first snow in Utah :'( BUT. I cannot deny that the trees here are really in their prime right now and it literally takes my breath away!
While I love each gorgeous colored leaf that falls from their branches, a bunch of leaves all grouped together is even more beautiful. Have you ever noticed how a tree can look so crazy, vibrant, pretty red and only when you get closer do you start to see that a lot of the leaves are not red, but a combination of colors and there may even be plenty of green left? It’s this nice little mirage of color that draws you in and makes you appreciate the colder weather (a little).
Well it’s no secret here that Malissa and I are big BIG fans of crafting with autumn leaves, who can deny that gorgeousness?! And, possibly the best part? It’s totally free! Crafting and party decorating can get expensive! So we love anything that includes a nice walk and no dollars. Last year we did this autumn leaf backdrop and these fabulous leaf and flower mobiles so this year we decided to incorporate leaves into one of our favorite party supplies, balloons!
You know the typical (and amazing) tassel garlands always attached to geronimo balloons?! Well this is our warm-colored, autumn spin on those and I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out. They were free (except the balloons and helium) and SO easy to make. Click through to see the pictures and steps, can’t you just image this by your Thanksgiving table this year?! I’d die.
