Tassel Tails for Big Balloons – DIY Intructions

Tassel Tail for Big Balloon

I love the impact that our 3ft Big Balloons make, add a tassel tail and they become a real statement piece and provide a touch of theatre to any occasion. You can buy tassel tails for balloons from a number of suppliers for upwards of £30 a piece! With a half an hour to spare and a few sheets of tissue paper you can make one of these for a matter of pence (and something that is hand made is just that little bit extra special).

You will need:

Sheets of Tissue Paper 50x75cm (1 sheet for each tassel, I used 5 tassels)

A sharp pair of scissors

2 meter length of lace trim

other oddments of lace or lightweight ribbon

Fold your sheet of tissue paper in half legthways and then in half widthways

Carefully cut from the bottom edge of your paper up to an inch from the lengthway fold. Make each fringe about 1/2″ wide

Continue along the whole of the folded sheet

unfold the widthway fold and give the fringe a gentle shake to unstick the fringing.

Starting at one end of top uncut section of the paper, gentle roll the paper together

Tie tightly with a piece of lightweight ribbon

With one end of the ribbon you used to tie the paper together with, wrap it around the end of your tassel and tie securely

You have a finished tassel, now make some more!

Lay the length of pretty lace out straight across the floor or table. Tie each tassel to the length of lace approx. 15cm apart from each other. Add any other bits of ribbon and lace as you wish.

Garden Tea Parties

Our pretty little shop has recently launched a Strawberry Tea Party Pack in support of Breast Cancer Care’s annual Strawberry Tea.

It has certainly put me in the mood to plan some outdoor parties this summer (including a Strawberry Tea). I hope this inspires you to take the party outdoors and put on the kettle.

Pretty Little Party Shop has put together a gorgeous Strawberry Tea Party Pack, £5 of each pack sold will go direct to Breast Cancer Care.

This pretty blousy blue tea party turns tea and cake into a pretty work of art!

Tea Party Themed Party

I love this colourful eclectic table by Mangacomplimenta. We particuarly like the wine coolers and will definitly be reusing the kids sand castle buckets as cute and colourful wine coolers this summer!

Adorable childrens outdoor tea party! From the bunting and the pom poms to mix and match chairs it?s whimsical yet simple. Now all I need to recreate this look is an orchard!

childrens tea party in the Garden

Perhaps not strictly a tea party but more of a picnic, this childrens party setting by World of Vieta is just so sweet. Hanging paper lanterns create a magical atmosphere.
