I Do

How exciting! Your daughter or son has gotten engaged! Everyone is so excited but now comes the work! Planning and getting ready for a wedding can cause stress, arguments and feelings of despair!

So before it gets to that point, I am here to help! There is so much that you and your family can do to personalize the reception! I am starting with the name cards of each attendee and the table number cards. You can make these quickly, easily and economically!!

Start with making paper! I grabbed a handful of recycled white envelopes and threw in a dusting of glitter once the pulp was in the mold!

Once my paper was dry, I printed the names. I cut a fancy shaped square using my Sixxiz Vintaj and a die.  Depending on the size you can get close to a dozen from one sheet of paper. The edges can be inked to match the bridal party colors.

I used a cork as the base of the name cards. Simply cut a slit in the top and if it wants to roll, slice a little off the bottom.

The table number holders are a pyramid of corks hot glued together. I found these metal heart picks which work perfectly for holding each number. (Your local Italian restaurant might be able to help you out with a supply of corks! Ours did!)

This type of table decor could be used for a shower, a birthday party or even for the holiday season!!

Start saving those envelopes and corks and make your own fabulous reception decor!!
