DIY Wednesday: Watercolor Paper Goods
Posted by Kate. Filed under DIY Wednesday, Do It Yourself

By: Caroline Drake

Watercolors are such a fun trend right now, and a great way to splash your wedding colors on just about anything! Dessert or food labels can be dressed up easily with just a few strokes of watercolors, and it makes a huge impact on a delicious table spread. Here’s the how-to:

Materials: Watercolor paints in your colors • Paint Brush • Water • Watercolor Paper • Scissors or a decorative paper punch

Step One. Print out, or write the food labels you need onto watercolor paper.

Step Two. Cut the labels out with scissors, or use a die cut or paper punch for a more decorative edge.  When you make your cuts, leave room for the watercolor design.

Step Three. Paint a few lines of watercolors onto the label.  Repeat for all paper goods in the spread.

Step Four. Place the watercolor paper goods on the table to label the goodies for your guests.  Mini easels are also a fun way to display them, and you can find them at most craft stores.

Are you planning to incorporate a dessert bar into your reception festivities? Consider packaging a few of the sweets in parchment so traveling guests can grab a few on their way out the door. It’s an inexpensive solution that looks pretty too!

Supplies: parchment • paper twine • scissors

Step one • Cut your parchment paper into strips (the size of the strips will depend on the size of the dessert you’ll be wrapping). Wrap up each dessert and secure with a length of twine.

Step two • Find a pretty cake stand to display the individually packaged goodies.

Step three • Place a doily on the stand and stack away!

DIY Wednesday: Wooden Spoon Flags
Posted by Kate. Filed under DIY Wednesday, Do It Yourself

By: Jordan Ferney

Wooden utensils are a pretty detail when you need disposable flatware. They have a look that is a little more substantial than plastic. In this easy project we added a fun detail by drilling a small hole at the end of the utensil and adding a ribbon flag. This would be perfect for a shower or even for a casual wedding or dessert bar. It is a very easy project, we did the whole thing in about 25 minutes.

Materials Needed: Power Drill, Wooden Flatware, Ribbon

Holding a stack of wooden flatware tightly together, drill a hole at the end.
Tie short ribbons on the ends to make them a little more festive.


Happy DIY Wednesday

Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

As we soak up the last few weeks of summer sun, we’ve got a vibrant yellow and damask California real wedding for you. The lovely couple, Holly and Dieter, met on eHarmony!  A group of co-workers used their savvy party planning skills to coordinate the entire event. (We’re in awe of how the crew pulled together the dessert table)! Holly and Dieter said their vows looking out over the vast blue sea.. and had an intimate gathering with friends and family at their home near Dana Point.  Thanks to Kristi Klemens for sharing these photos with us!
