I’ve said time and time again that design is in the details, and this rings particularly true when hosting an event. While you could easily go all out in a multitude of different ways, when I’m hosting a gathering I prefer to stick to one or two simple, yet impactful, moments to really bring it all to life. Whether it’s a bountiful flower arrangement, a really pretty dessert table backdrop (floating floral wall anyone?), or something as simple as these DIY flower stir sticks, it doesn’t take much to make your party wow-worthy. With photos from Heidi Lau, grab the simple steps below!
Fresh flowers of your choice, trimmed with 2″ stems
26 gauge silver or copper wire (I bought mine at Michael’s)
1:: Using a sharp exacto knife, trim the bamboo skewer to desired length (ours were around 6″ long)
2:: Cut your wire to around 6″ long
3:: Grab a flower or two, plus a leaf or two of your choice and wrap the wire around both the stem of the flower, leaves, and bamboo skewers until secure. Cut, or tuck, any sharp wire edges.
4:: Place in your drink as stir stick and enjoy
