Pinwheel, pinwheel…

Pinwheels are an awesome, playful detail that can be incorporated into your outdoor summer event.  I will have the pleasure of incorporating them into a client’s graduation garden party but  you can also  incorporate pinwheels into your wedding or party decor by using them as reception decor; incorporating them into your cake; or have your bridesmaids carry them instead of bouquets. You can even make mini pinwheels for the guys to wear as an alternative to floral boutonnieres!
