Styling tips

Tinseldot shares its top tips for pulling off this event.

Tip 1

To avoid damages or spills on your DIY pattern floor, purchase a clear vinyl roll and place it on top.

Tip 2

As an option, you can purchase a plain white cake at your local grocery store and add some sprinkles with maraschino cherries. It will save you some money!

Tip 3

Try using pieces of furniture you own, like a bookshelf or buffet table that matches your color theme.

Tip 4

Here are printables we created for this party, which you can download for free!
