Put your hand up if you often refer to pinterest to help you plan an event! Okay *literally everyone* you can put your hands down now. We all LOVE pinterest... and for great reason - it allows us to host amazing, instagram-worthy events that will get everyone talking without having to think! 

However, I'm here to help you get the most out of your hours spent pinning to streamline the planning process and ensure you get exactly what you want!

1. PICK ONE PICTURE THAT EMULATES WHAT YOU WANT

For me, this is generally a picture that has all of the colour tones that I want to come through the different elements of the event. Whether it be an image from an event or something completely random, such as a bunch of cacti in the desert. Pick something that you can keep referring back to and ask yourself does this 'balloon' or 'menu' match my theme? Does that suit my colour palette? 

2. CREATE SEPARATE BOARDS

The biggest mistake you can make is pinning 2,000 different things on to the same board. Good luck going through and trying to find the exact picture you're looking for while you're sitting with your suppliers. Give each element of the event its own board to make it easy to find. For example, for your wedding you might have a board for flowers, dress, cake, table settings, reception etc. and pin accordingly to make it all easy to find. 

3. SHARE THE BOARDS WITH YOUR SUPPLIER

How often do you think suppliers hear the words 'I saw a picture on pinterest and it looked like...' Save yourself the trouble, link them to the board and they can see exactly what that picture looks like and they will have a clear understanding of what you want as well as a few other ideas of things you like to give it a unique spin. 

4. REMEMBER TO GET CREATIVE

Just because you see something on Pinterest doesn't mean you should just copy it directly. Put your own spin on things and keep it exciting. Even if it's using the same concept but with a different colour palette or the reverse, make it your own!
