Want it for less Wednesday {Easton Place giveaway}

I can't believe it's Wednesday already! What a fun week of giveaways so far. Before I get to today's amazing loot from Easton Place Designs, I wanted to tell you about a new weekly series I'm starting on the blog. Each Wednesday the theme of the post will be "I want it for Less"...I will find fashion trends, home decor items, & neat projects & try to find cheaper copies or DIY it myself for less. I thought it would be fitting to kick the new series off today since it's blogiversary week!

 First up in the series: I want it for less "Large tassel balloon" 


I'm not sure about you guys but I have seen these floating beauties all over the internet  I love them even though  I'm not a fan of latex balloons (so that's saying something). When I saw that they cost a pretty penny (even though I must say the originals are gorgeous)...I just knew I could DIY it for less.



So I challenged myself & this is what I came up with...



I purchased my balloon from here, used tissue paper I already had & took it to Party City to have it filled with helium. It only cost me a total of $10. That made my wallet happy and I loved how it turned out...so I headed out to Nick's Cove to shoot some photos.









So what do you think of the series? Are you guys as excited as I am about it? Tell me. Now let's get to the amazing giveaway from Easton Place Designs.

  16. What a clever series! $180 for two (albeit large) balloons?!?!?! Seriously? Am I showing my age when I say my wedding dress cost less than that???? Yours were every bit as pretty. And speaking of pretty, I love the outfit you (?) were sporting in the balloon pictures. My favorite item at Easton Place is the zip code paper weight which I would like to give to my son's girlfriend. They were two years into their relationship before they lived on the same side of the state, let alone the same city. She was one happy lady when she proudly proclaimed on Facebook that they finally lived in the same zip code!
