DIY plans!

So, I'm really excited about DIY-ing some of the stuff for the wedding

Invitations - Black cardstock, with cream cardstock overlay. There will be a purple lace band that goes across the middle, and then a small black ribbon that goes across the top of the lace.

Escort cards - http://www.projectwedding.com/wedding-ideas/diy-wedding-challenge-diy-escort-cards - but w/ possibly with a cream colored lace although idk if it'll look too "antique," and the ribbon would be purple.

Save the dates - the above-escort card, but the name tag will say "Save the Date," and inside will have all the information, maybe on a magnet. I don't think we're going to have our pics on the STD.

Pomanders - I'm going to have alternating purple and cream pomanders on the aisle chairs, attached to black ribbon

Favors: cupcakes in baby food jars, but with purple food coloring. http://www.flickr.com/photos/94552249@N00/4462906928/in/photostream/ -- the lids will be painted purple, with a black ribbon around it. Sticker on top w/ our initials and the date. Jar will get wrapped in either black lace with cream colored ribbon/bow or purple lace with black ribbon/bow

Bracelet: Something similar to this. There were instructions somewhere on PW to DIY!

I also want to DIY the table numbers. I'm thinking wooden numbers painted black and then with some jewels glued on.
