Anyone else looking forward to this summer for BBQ’s, parties, and hanging out by the pool??

I know I am!!

And with summer, comes having friends and family over.  So, whenever we have people over, I like to try to pretend that I am a party planner and create fun themes. My husband creates some sort of fun menu, and I plan the decor. We have done many different themes, mostly revolving around the meal.

Now, this spring/summer I have been loving the pineapples that are popping up everywhere!!  Pillows, trinkets, and die cuts!!

Paper Bunting Tutorial

The whole pineapple theme totally works when I was challenged to create a fun tutorial for the Xyron Design Team partnership with Pink And Main because Pink and Main have some adorable pineapple die cuts and patterned paper to create fun party decor.

8. Adhere the pineapple die cut to the bunting.

9. Repeat until you have enough pink, pineapple, and plaid bunting for your party!

These pineapple buntings would be super cute near the drinks or hanging on a wall near the food!  You could even turn the pineapple die cuts into decorative straw by adhering them directly onto the straw!

There are so many ways you can spruce up your next BBQ, party, or small get together with these adorable die cuts!
