diy fruit pinata

It was a tropical afternoon when Community Coffee hosted a cheerful Saturday event. Community Coffee held a sharing session for parents about “Healthy Family Lifestyle” while dreamesh diy hosted a DIY session for the kids to make a fruit piñata!
Although I mentioned fruits, mostly watermelons made the pick. Here’s how to make your own little fruit piñata for a birthday or sweet décor for a kids room.
 What you need:
Thin cardboard or paper plates, masking tape, glue, string, crepe paper in green, red or pink, and white (for a watermelon).
How to make:
1.    Cut out one circle then cut in half to get two half circles. Or you can also use large paper plates and cut into two. Our watermelons were around 25 cm long.
2.    Cut out a long rectangle as long as your watermelon with a width of 6 cm.
3.    Cut the ends slightly narrowed.
4.    Tape all sides of the cardboard together forming the shape of a slice of watermelon.
5.    Make sure to leave one end of the bottom flap open to fill in your goodies. If not, you can tape all ends secure.
6.    Start making the fringes using crepe paper. Cut 4 cm crepe paper and cut fringes for all colors you will need.
7.    Before sticking on the fringes, secure string through your watermelon especially if you are planning to hang it.
8.    Start sticking the crepe paper working bottom-up. So, start with green for the bottom of the watermelon, then white and red.
9.    Done? Stick on the seeds using little round stickers. Make sure you color them black first and cut to adjust into a teardrop. Stick as many as you like!
10.    Your watermelon piñata is ready to cheer up your party or space now!

outdoor decor

We all probably know that decorating outdoor can be quite tricky. You don’t have the walls to hang things on or the limits it shapes.



If you ask me which is more harder or easier? I would say both have their challenges. But somehow, the result of a well decorated outdoor space just might get me smiling a bit more hence the limitations and also weather issues.

Here are a few outdoor spaces I decorated that you can totally remake for any occassion!

spooky scenes

Here are some of our Halloween decor we did for some vendors and events. Nothing scary, just some cute ghosts, mummies, and  zombies hangin' around. Along with pumpkin lanterns and spider webs.




The photobooth for the event at SIKU



 Ghosts, spider balloons, and a sitting skeleton to boo the guests at Lot 9 Bintaro.

the end of october...

...means it's time for my Champ's birthday bash and Halloween! Because the two comes almost at the same time, Yuara's 9th birthday was themed to match the fun spirits of Halloween.
Birthday boy and little sister. Can you guess what Kutri is dressed up for?

Moi, the decorater slash witch

I found a great venue at Unju'an where I could rent indoor space and decorate it as I please. It was definitely a score and I am so happy with the results.

I decorated with white rags, spider webs, ghost lanterns, white webs, and pumpkin lanterns.


 How scary do you think our family is?

I mean look at those treats! A skull cake, Frankenstein cupcakes, ghost cake pops, and skeleton cookies. Sweet scary treats for the little guests!


As Yuara was celebrating his 9th birthday, we let him invite 9 friends so it was only natural that we had a face painter on the spot so that the kids could face paint their scary looks. We spotted a dracula, zombie, half skull and many more scary (but cute) faces. It was an intimate scare party that ended with no actual blood. I hope you had a blast, Yuara!

DIY: SPIDER WEB
What you need: Black tape, scissors. 
How to make:
1. Measure how big you want your web to be and to make it easier, draw on the surface of where you want to stick your web.
2. Start with making a cross for the base of the web and two other diagonal lines.
3. Add the webs to attach from each line to line. Et voila!

Note: you can use black tape, duck tape, or even masking tape depending on the background of your web.

dreamesh floral arrangements

If you haven’t noticed already, dreamesh décor loves flowers. I love flowers! It's my middle name!  Whether to add or not to add flowers to a decoration, of course depends on the event. The more formal the event, the more it suits to use flowers. However, you can use flowers to any kind of event you want. If it goes, why not?!
  Hydrangea - Succulent centerpiece
I love finding the right combination of florals and greens that tie together and add prettiness to my décor. Whether it a wedding, table décor, or other event, playing with flower decoration is always challenging and I love challenges so it is rather more fun than daunting.





Is it tricky to make a floral arrangement?  So – so I must say. Experimenting with all kinds of plants and flowers help to get the groove. And it really depends on the theme of the event. A rustic themed event would do just fine with twigs and a few leaves. Sometimes as simple as succulents also does the trick.  Other times, more flowers to leaves or the other way round works better to tie it into the theme. What about the color of the flowers? Again, it better depends on the theme or the clients’ request. However, neutral flowers like white, yellow, light green, peach would work better in rustic and country themes. Red and dark pink bring pop of color while pale pinks, purples, and pastel color bring a soft touch to any floral arrangement.

Here are some pictures of flower decorations we have done in the past. I hope it can bring you some inspiration in the floral department ;)

Kate Spade Event
A Pink rose bush to welcome guests at the event. A classy look with only pink roses!






Floral Letter
This custom letter floral display was made with peach roses, white little flowers and green leafs adding a rustic feel to the decor.  
Rustic Floral Centerpiece
A pretty mix of pink, white, and light green florals potted in a wooden box.
 
Floral arrangements 
Barn Themed Birthday Party
Dandelions were just perfect for the theme. Big dandelions together or one stem alone still looks all put together. I love this big sun flower!
Floral Arrangements for Clients
Here are two examples how I used the brand colors to define the choice of flowers to use. 
Lazada's Blue and Orange Set
Tropicana Slim's Yellow and White Set
A Purple Wedding Flower Arrangement
I used purple and green hydrangeas, white roses, and white little flowers with a little green to tie it all in. Soft and elegant was the key. Another one of my favorites!



A Colorful Soyjoy Gathering
Succulents, roses, hydrangeas all together? Why not! The colorful pack and assorted plants make me fall in love with them all over again.



Wedding Floral Hoops
A unique way to display your flower arrangement. This is what I meant about more greens to the flowers. Pretty, eh?


A Birthday Celebration
Soft colored roses and hydrangeas with a dash of dark pink roses can go quite nice don't you think?
