Today I’m sharing some ideas for decorating your Focus on Your Innergram event as well as some favor and refreshment ideas.

Decor:

For our Focus on Your Innergram New Beginnings, we wanted a cheerful, playful feel and decided to use easy-to-sew burlap bunting, tissue-paper pom-poms and burlap tablecloths. Burlap is a readily available and inexpensive fabric with a rustic feel. I purchased the burlap for our bunting and tablecloths from Hobby Lobby. To make the tablecloths, I didn’t bother hemming the burlap, I simply cut it to length and spread it on the tables.

By stringing the bunting between the poles and hanging tissue-paper pom-poms on the wall, we created a cheerful backdrop for our event. Additional bunting flags were hung on burlap-covered tables, the podium and the piano. We used safety pins to pin the bunting to the burlap and then clipped a clothespin over the safety pin.

In addition to stringing the bunting between the poles, we also strung twine “clotheslines” on which we hung posters with “selfie” Innergram posters which featured all of the leaders making funny faces. [My next post will feature these and other posters and you can download them then.]

 Here’s a link to a great tutorial for making your own tissue-paper pom-poms, which are so easy to make and give a big impact.

Favors:

For our event, we found some cute metal buckets at Target and used clothespins to clip one of my handouts to each bucket. Since we had a popcorn bar, the buckets did double-duty because the girls could put popcorn into the buckets  to take home.
