February has finally arrived this year, and love is in the air now that Valentine's Day is coming up! Although I will most likely celebrate it by spending time with my friends, I am so excited to dress for the holiday by wearing lots of floral print, reds, pinks, and heart shaped fashion pieces! When I celebrated Galentine's Day with Casey from http://completelycasey.com and Silvia from http://lovelysilvia.com, my fellow Houston blogger friends, early this month, we decided to celebrate it in style with a feast full of treats! Because not only do bloggers love to dress up for any occasion, we also love to eat cute shape desserts- especially for Valentine's Day! Since a few of my friends were interested in how I made my flower crown featured in my last post here, I will be sharing with you how I DIY'd my flower crown as well as an additional treat recipe that is perfect for a Galentine's Day party. Let's begin:
FLOWER CROWN DIY:
Materials- store bought flower crown (mine was from Charlotte Russe), fake flowers
1) When purchasing a flower crown, make sure the frame/head piece has layers with flowers spaced between them.
2) Get your fake flowers and start pulling them off from the stem.
3) Arrange the flowers around the flower crown to your preference.
4) Insert the mini tip from the back of the fake flowers into the head piece.
5) Feel free to space out the petals to your liking once all the flowers are inserted into the crown.
And you are done! It's an easy flower crown DIY that can be as colorful, voluminous, and layered to your liking. Not only is it perfect for romantic occasions, but it is also a wonderful piece to wear to music concerts as well! I hope you enjoyed my simple flower crown DIY!
For additional fun for your Galentine's Day party, I was inspired to make heart shaped fruit kabobs when I looked through Pinterest and also wanted to share my recipe!
EASY, LAST MINUTE FRUIT KABOBS:
Materials: Assorted fruits, candy life savors (hard and/or gummy), knife, and kabob sticks
1) With as many fruits as you desire, cut heart shapes and place them in a plate.
2) Take a kabob stick.
3) Insert fruits (you can be as creative as you want) to your kabob stick
4) Between fruits, also put life savor candy between them for an extra sweet treat!
There you go! Your fruit kabobs are beautifully finished and perfect for the party! With chocolate and baked goods often being made in Valentine's Day, these cute fruit treats are a different spin since they are a healthier dessert alternative.
Hope you enjoyed this fun Galentine's Day collaboration with Casey and Silvia! Check out Casey's post here and Silvia's post here for their DIY and food recipes!
