These signs will point the way to the reception. The road winds for a bit before reaching several buildings. We want our guests to know which one is housing the reception. We ordered these from Oriental Trading Co. I am very pleased with them.
I saw these punch cup candle holders at Judy's place over at Just A Little Something For You. She said she got the idea from another blogger. I thought they would be so pretty on the food serving tables. The punch cups were my grandmother's. I found the tiny calla lilies at Hobby Lobby. I love the way they turned out.
We are using the blue fabric on the serving tables, the wedding cake table, and the tables where people will be sitting. It will be "swished" on top of the white tablecloths. There will be candles on all the tables. Below is the bird cage that will be on the gift table. Anyone who brings a card for the bride and groom can slip it through the spaces and into the cage. I just realized I turned it with the bow in the back for the picture. Oh well, you get the idea.
Here are he pew bows. I found these bows at the Dollar Tree and the blue flowers at H. Lobby for half price. Can anyone say ...hot glue gun!
This is the throw-away bouquet. We are going to use it on the cake table until it is time to toss it! Another H.Lobby 1/2 price find!
My hubby spray painted this basket that I already had. It is the perfect size for the bottles of bubbles on the favor table. 240 bottles.... that's a lot of little bows!
Our other favor is "bag your own" bag of candy. I found these blue bowls at Walmart for $1.50. the candy at Sam's and the scoops at "Party City". I made the tags with paper and card stock. The font is "Party". Looked like a party, I thought. I had to make tags because my girl likes everything m&m, so we will have three varieties.
There is much more, but you'll see the rest in the wedding photos. I just wanted to share a little of what I've been doing these last few months. It has been fun getting it all together. I have three friends who are going to do the decorating while we are having the rehearsal and dinner. It is wonderful to have gifted friends who are happy to help and who are trustworthy. I know it is going to look just as beautiful as I am imagining! ELEVEN DAYS!!!!
