DIY carnival inspired balloon escort “cards”

categories Details + Decor, DIY Wedding

In sifting through Jenna’s mountain of wedding inspiration, we came across this cute window display she designed during her tenure at Anthropologie:


And immediately we thought, hello fun escort card display! Jillian recreated the idea over the weekend to share with you all.




It’s a simple project (one that could easily be done with your girlfriends the morning of the wedding), but adds such a fun bit of whimsy to your wedding decor. You could do this project with less expected colors too; especially if you’re not going for the vintage country fair or Coney Island vibe. We can totally see a board full of pretty neutrals working beautifully.
