We got quite a bit accomplished. Those candles and white pumpkins you see are for the centerpieces at the reception. There was some debate over the placement of the ribbon. But if there's one piece of advice I have for those helping prepare for a wedding its.... "The bride's opinion prevails." That's as it should be. It is her day after all. The fairytale day that we all dream about, whether we admit it or not.
The centerpiece will be beautiful. See the little discs of wood. The centerpiece will be big blocks of wood like that with three candles of varying heights, white pumpkin, falll leaves, acorns and a big spider mum with no stem. I'll post pics after the wedding.
The small discs of wood are for the name card holders. That's the reason we needed the wire cutters you see pictured there. Copper wire got wrapped around that pen to form a circly thing to stick the cards in. The wire got glued into a tiny drilled hole in the discs of wood. Very rustic. My thumb was numb for four days from wrapping wire.
The basket on the table will be the card holder. I'm going to make a box with a slit in the top, cover it in pretty ribbon, place it in the middle of the basket and then put real apples all around it. Struggling a little on dressing this basket up without making it gawdy.
The "Dollar Tree" receipt you see there is from the fall leave garlands that will be placed on the railing around the room. They will have little white twinkly lights twined with them too. Oooooo..... pretty.
The clothes pin is for a bridal shower game. The bridal shower is today. I really should be off doing something shower related.
