Cordier Event Planning is a family affair and today we have a guest blogger that I happen to love (not just because we are blood related)!  

New Orleans Style Umbrellas by Antrelle Banks

Second line umbrellas are more than a Mardi Gras idea; they can really be used for all occasions and make a great accent piece for any event.  I’ve made umbrellas for weddings, birthdays, and even graduation parties.  

Crafting umbrellas can be so relaxing and gives this southern mommy a much needed break from the daily chaos of life.  

If you are planning to make your own New Orleans style umbrella here are a few tips to remember:
  1. Be careful with hot glue - hot glue is a great adhesive to use to attach feathers, ornaments, or jewels but remember it is HOT!
  2. Explore your creativity – umbrellas can be used for any event you want to style. Make it your own! Pick accents, add-ons, and materials that reflect your personality.  Have some fun with your designs and really do your thing.
  3. There is no such thing as too much bling – more is better when it comes to bling! Bedazzle away.  I love sparkle and so should you!
