15 DIY Ideas for the Ultimate Oz Party
As lovers of design and nostalgia, we can’t help but wonder if Pantone’s choice of Emerald as the color of the year has anything to do with the emerald city, and this year’s cinematic journey into the story of Oz The Great and Powerful.
That’s why when the folks at Disney asked us how we might throw the ultimate Oz party, we jumped at the opportunity. Get ready for 15 projects inspired by balloons, emeralds, and, of course, the yellow brick road.
