DIY Greenery Heart Backdrop

Wooo! It feels SO good to be posting again! This past month has been chaos with moving and not being able to find an apartment out here in Colorado but I’m happy to say that I signed a lease last week and should be moving in today or tomorrow! During my time off from actual shoots and posting, I have come up with SO MANY project ideas! I’m super excited to start diving into the list once I get settled in. And I’m hoping you all will love the ideas too!

But before I get carried away with future projects – today’s is perfect for upcoming Valentine’s or Galentine’s celebrations! I grabbed a couple bundles of eucalyptus from Traders Joe’s and put this together in minutes! It makes a really sweet and simple backdrop! I think it would be a sweet addition at a bridal or baby shower too. I’ve been waitressing every year on Valentine’s Day for the past few years (and will be again this year) so it was nice to be able enjoy this sweet set up ahead of time this year.DIY Greenery Heart @themerrythoughtDIY Greenery Heart @themerrythoughtWhat you need:
