Happy Friday!! Today I am sharing a teensy DIY I did the other day as I slowly get things ready for Baby C’s first birthday party next month. I picked out a super moody color scheme for the party filled with gorgeous deep plums, burgundies, and blues. I’m going to lighten things up a bit by adding some cream and dusty pink to the mix.
I went to Ikea a few weeks back to pick up some rocking chairs for our new and improved backyard and it was like the Ikea designers were hanging out in my brain and wanted to provide me with a variety of vases, ceramics, napkins, towels in the perfect juicy shade of plum. I scooped up some awesome vases for the serving table centerpiece and went on my merry way.
Pretty right? Well I laid them all out and thought…what could make these even better? Yeah, you know where this is going. GOLD! I thought about some pretty gold leafed vases my friend Cassie did last month and went to search for some fresh sheets of gold leaf in my craft goodie closet. No such luck. Since I’m an instant gratification kind of girl, it was on to the next gold potion- Rub ‘n Buff.
I wanted to keep much of the color visible on the vases so I chose to only apply the Rub ‘n Buff to portions of each of the vases. I simply taped off the areas I wanted to keep plain and started rubbing on the gold where I wanted it.
I have to admit, I really like how they turned out and love the warmth that the gold gives the group of vases. I have so many more projects to get working on for the party and I can’t wait to show you how I plan on styling the table! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
