I’m already itching to make the cinnamon stick garland seen earlier in Sarah Park‘s Apple Orchard Wedding Inspiration shoot – can you imagine how amazing it would smell around the house as the holidays get nearer? Luckily Sarah’s here to give us some tips on how to make this garland, and lucky for us it’s easy as pumpkin pie!

From the stylist, Sarah of Sarah Park Events: Our DIY project for this shoot was inspired by one of the main ingredients in our fall desserts and drinks – cinnamon sticks. To add a little more fall flair into the design, we made a cinnamon stick garland and used it in our dessert and escort card station. A simple DIY project but definitely a statement piece that smells great!

    I love the sense of apple and cinnamon. It must have been a lot of work knotting all the cinnamon sticks together. This is definitely an inspirational idea for wedding theme. Love the bridal makeup as well!
