Wedding Crafts part 3

The table numbers are almost done. I painted the edges with colors corresponding to the place cards last week. Today I painted the faces and soon we just need to add, well, the numbers!

Wedding Crafts part 2

Ok, cleaning is not the same as crafting, but today I ordered the flowers and finished washing the vases for the table centerpieces.

I have 18 vases and only broke 1 which I think is a pretty good ratio.
These are all from Maya's wedding in October and I'm so lucky to have them and not be scrounging around dollar stores or craigslist right now! In 8 days, we fill them with flowers.

I ordered flowers today from a local flower farm. I got some of everything they had in season including peonies and a bunch of other flowers that I had never heard of. I hope they're pretty!

Wedding Crafts part 1

You knew that wedding crafts would appear in earnest at some point, right? The count-down has begun and the crafting has begun as well.

These blocks of wood will be table numbers.

These fabric strips will be napkin ties and may someday be a quilt if my crazy plan in which people round up napkin ties for me at the reception actually happens. Hmmm...some of you may be designated fabric grabbers!

So far these projects have been great fun. More soon!
