Party Recap

I was honored to be asked to style a party scene for Pottery Barn Kids' recent Star Wars event at the Chandler Mall. The goal was to show parents how you can use items from around the house as party props. I'm all about getting multiple uses out of any purchase!

    Yes, the shooting star lollipops are edible! They're pressed sugar embellished with disco dust (edible glitter). Follow the method shown on my blog here: http://tradewindtiaras.blogspot.com/2011/06/diy-project-how-to-make-molded-sugar.html . The glitter play dough is available here: http://tradewindtiaras.blogspot.com/2011/10/diy-project-how-to-make-glitter.html . I don't have a tutorial for the light sabers, but I just dipped pretzels in colored chocolate and sprinkled with disco dust, then made a little fondant handle.
