Gilded in Gold: 3 Ways
Posted by Kate. Filed under Color Palettes, Wedding Inspiration

I’m still gaga for anything gold, but there are so many ways to pull off this palette.  Inspired by the myriad of gorgeous gold photos I found, here are three concepts to feast your eyes on:  One warm, romantic, beautifully vintage. One deep, dramatic, exciting, and glamorous. And the third, a sweet boho look with a trendy spin ♥

DIY Wednesday: Plaster Mold Escort Cards
Posted by Kate. Filed under DIY Wednesday, Do It Yourself

By: Brittni Mehlhoff

Surprise your guests when they pick up their escort cards with plaster table numbers or monogram favors that will direct them to their seats.

Supplies: powder plaster • plastic container for mixing • silicone number or letter mold • patterned paper scraps • scissors • small favor bags • sequin thread • hole punch • metal or wooden spoon

Step One. Scoop powdered plaster into a small container and mix with water according to directions.

Step Two. Stir water and plaster mixture until you achieve desired consistency, which should be similar to pancake batter. Plaster sets very quickly, so you will want to work fast.

Step Three. Pour mixture into the number or letter mold, or gently scoop the mixture in with a spoon. Set aside and allow the plaster to harden for at least one hour (dry time may vary).

Step Four. Carefully remove the plaster numbers from the mold one at a time and let them finish air drying for a full 24 hours.  When the numbers are completely dry, you can begin placing them in small favor bags.

Step Five. Write guests’ names on small, geometric, patterned papers. (Write in a table number too, if you decide to go for monograms).  Punch a hole through the top of each paper and another hole through the top of the favor bags.  String sequins through the scrap paper and the favor bag, fold the top of the favor bag over and tie sequin thread off in a knot.

DIY Wednesday: Confetti Table Runner
Posted by Kate. Filed under DIY Wednesday, Do It Yourself

By: Victoria Hudgins

Finding wedding linens that connect with your style can be a challenge. Custom table runners are a great way to interject wedding style in a way that is cost effective and festive. This DIY confetti runner makes a trendy statement and can be placed on dining tables, a guest card table or a dessert bar!

To make the confetti runner:

Step One. Cut a length of fabric to size. The dimensions should be 1/3 of the width of your table and 1 1/2 times the length, so it hangs pretty.

Step Two. Fold over and sew the sides for a finished look or leave the edges raw for a casual outdoor wedding.

Step Three. Purchase fabric paint and a package of circular sponge painters.

Step Four. Paint on colored ‘confetti’ rounds using different sized sponges.

Step Five. Let dry; iron paint side down for a perfect look.

Adorn with matching décor!
