Please realize I am on a very tight budget so everything I am doing is DIY. If I cannot create or make it I can't have it.


This is a High Tea so everything is Tea related.

I switched colors of my dress to champagne so I tea dyed the white flower, ribbon and handkerchief that were white.

These are usually used to make cookies I used them with papermache and polyclay to make an escort card favor.

These are going to be on the High Tea Buffet Table along with scones

This is a handmade teabag with whole leaf tea and a pouch to keep it clean.

These are going to be attached to the Tea bag with a different Tea related poem on each

Yet again I am reminded of what an amazingly talented group of ladies we have here!! I am not nearly so crafty, so I only had a few DIYs, but I only had the courage to try them because of PW :)


My STDs, invites, aisle decor and favors were DIYs:


Yet again I am photo 3443025-1 I had a friend take an Epic and design this, then I played around with Word business card templates to get these set up so many to a page, then we printed them at home on magnet paper from Hobby Lobby and cut them apart!


Yet again I am photo 3443025-2 I was inspired to create my own invites based on another PW brides tutorial...Hobby Lobby again to the rescue! These were pocket-fold invites made out of construction paper and cardstock.


 


Here is the inspiration for my tissue poms:


Yet again I am photo 3443025-3  Yet again I am photo 3443025-4


And here is the final product:


Yet again I am photo 3443025-5


My favors are my favorite DIY. We printed cardstock on two sides - one said Thanks for Making our Day so SWEET! and had the heart cutout in the middle, with our names and wedding date below. Then the inside had DH's grandma's family sugar cookie recipe, and we tied the cookie cutters in the middle!


Yet again I am photo 3443025-6 (ignore the date, my camera was goofy!)

Yea, great job CBT!! I love your lamps...could not have done a better job on those!


Here are a few of mine: dollar store frame:


Yea great job CBT photo 3443026-1


Chalkboard programs so I didn't have to make 75 programs...


Yea great job CBT photo 3443026-2Yea great job CBT photo 3443026-3


By far the cheapest DIY I made was the cake topper:


Yea great job CBT photo 3443026-4 Kind of hard to see, but I just printed out "Elise & Trent" on cardstock in a banner like fashion and stuck it in with bamboo skewers. <3


Escort cards:


Yea great job CBT photo 3443026-5 This was fun. I got to stalk people on facebook for pictures! lol.


And dollar store cake stands that I made, and dollar store cake cutters that I decorated because we had bundt cakes as centerpieces on half of the tables:
