How to Throw a Bangin’ Summer Party// Paperless Post

SUMMERMOODBOARD

Plan on throwing a fun party this summer? Well here are some of my favorite DIYs and outfits for an awesome party!

One of my favorite party DIYs is an ice cream bar! How fun would it be to have all your favorite toppings and ice cream laid out for your friends and family to enjoy.

And of course I had to incorporate pineapples! Pineapples and watermelons are killing it this summer, and what would a summer party be without adding those into your decoration and outfit!

Another awesome DIY is fruit popsicles. I have seen so many recipes and videos showing some of peoples favorite homemade fruit popsicles, and they just look too delicious to pass up. And hey, it’s summer so it’s bound to be a bit toasty out, and what better way to cool down than with a delicious kiwi popsicle!

This mood board was inspired by PaperLess Post’s fantastic invitations! Their watermelon invitation is adorable and makes me want to throw a party just so I can get the invitations! Click here to check out all of their cute cards! I am literally obsessed with all of their invitations, I wish I had enough reasons to throw parties just to use all of their cards.

Custom Designed Longboard Surfboard

Custom Designed Longboard Surfboard

If you follow me on Facebook then you would have seen my new custom painted longboard surfboard!

My father has been surfing for a very long time and I have tried it once or twice before but this summer I really wanted to get into it and it was soooo fun!

After several times of surfing, my father thought it would be best for me to get my own board shaped to best suit myself. Therefore, Peli surfboard out of Cocoa Beach, Fl shaped and did the blue base coat for my board.

The octopus was an idea of mine that came from lots of research on surfboard designs. There was one image of a giant octopus spread out over the entire board, and I loved it!

So I asked my mother, of MADart, to design this amazing octopus. And the final piece is absolutely amazing!

I will try to get some photos of me actually surfing on this board! I have only been able to take this particular board out once, but the board is amazing! Peli did a great job and the artwork is stunning!

My mother used acrylics to paint the octopus, and then the surfboard makers applied several top coats to set everything in.
