Romantic Luxe: Magnolia Arch Tutorial

A pumpkin transforms into a glittering carriage, mice into horses, rags into a dress ...

In any good fairy tale, a transformation is essential to the blissful finale, and one of the most memorable transformation tales was the one told of Cinderella.

Just like Cinderella, we have our own fairy godmother and stylist, Charra, to help deliver your "happily ever after"!

There's no need for a wand or pumpkins ... just a few magical ingredients from our Romantic Luxe Lookbook.

Take a look at our tutorial below to experience a transformation in your wedding, event or party!

Wrap the entire arch with green floral tape. Alternately, to save time, you may use spray paint for this step. Keep in mind, though, that you won't be able to recapture the white finish later ... unless you want to buy more spray paint!

4. Adding the Magic
