Something magical happens when women come together and support each other. We shine! The simple act of getting together over a glass of delicious Shine Club Wine becomes an opportunity to share with, learn from and inspire one another. And while the drinks may be the focal point adding a table decoration (or two, or three) can elevate the overall aesthetic of your event.

So compile a guest list, send those invites out ASAP and get ready to get crafty. Here are some DIY table decoration ideas that are easy to make, budget-friendly and will take your guests to the Tropics!

The Perfect Backdrop: Hula Hoop Wreath

Every party needs a gorgeous backdrop. What else will people stand in front of when taking selfies? This fabulous flower wreath can be hung behind a dinner table or used in a photobooth. You can even make few and hang them from trees if you’re having a garden party.

YOU WILL NEED

  • A hula hoop
  • Flowers
  • Leaves
  • Gold spray paint
  • Thin fishing line or cable ties

HOW TO MAKE IT

  1. Spray paint the hula hoop.
  2. Use the fishing line or cable ties to make a few knots around your hula hoop. The knot should have a little space to thread the leaves and flowers through.
  3. Thread the leaves through the knots and then add the flowers.
  4. Secure by tightly tying some fishing line or cable ties around the leaves.
