  • Project by Janie Medley Photos by Tori Watson Photography   This lovely floral wall makes perfect décor for a wedding reception, bridal shower, dinner parties — you name it!       Ingredients:  4 Bunches of Carnations (I used 4 different color palettes) Washi Tape Scissors Note:  Carnations are “hardy” flowers.  They do quite well out of water.  If you are going to have your carnation wall outside (and if it is a warm day), I would fill a spray bottle with water and mist the carnations.   How To:   Step One:  Purchase the carnations a couple of days before the event.  Once you get them home, give the stems a trim with the floral scissors and place them in a bucket of cool water.         On the day of the event, cut the stems of the carnations.  (There are 25 carnations in a pack, so depending on how full or how large you want the flower wall to be, use your judgment on how many you need to use).       Step Two: Cut a strip of the washi tape and secure the carnation to the wall. Place the carnations on the wall in whatever pattern you desire.     Step Three: I used some of the leftover stems and placed them in bud vases and I cut the blooms off the stems to place around the vases!

  • Project and Photos By: Mary Swenson   A black and white color combination is ultra-classy and and adds a formal touch to any event - especially a wedding. Our table embraces all that works so well with black and white, but with a few extra touches that take the edge off this tried-and-true color scheme.     Plain white dinner plates and a crisp white tablecloth create the canvas for our table.     A black and white gingham fabric runner, matching napkins, and empty, labeled jam jars add just the right amount of black accents.     The finishing touch? Flat wooden ovals from a craft store that we painted black and personalized with a white paint pen.     We love the black and white labels on these jam jars, and when filled with a few fresh, subtly-colored blooms, they make they perfect vessels for a casual, no-fuss centerpiece.     The pale green flowers add just the right touch of freshness and don't compete with the black accents on the table.     Line several flower-filled jars down the center of a long table, or cluster them in the middle of a round table for maximum effect. (Bonus: Guests can take them home as favors!)     A bouquet for the bride or a bridesmaid can easily be made to match your theme - simply gather flowers into a tight cluster, remove any extra leaves, and wrap the stems tightly with a piece of gingham fabric.     Put all of these details together and the result is a table that looks modern and sophisticated, with a homey touch!

  • Photos By: Jordan Ferney     Materials to make a 12 ft garland: 3 bunches of lemon leaves ($4 each) 24 & 30 Gauge Florist Wire ($2 each) A small rope ($2) Optional: wired florist stakes (best for apples and other firm fruit) Optional: fruit or berries     Go through the bunches of lemon leaves, cutting down the sections of leaves and leaving a 3" stem.     Don't forget your rope!     Keep cutting until you have enough to work with -- look at these neat piles!     Start gathering your leaves into clusters.     Cut an 8" section of 30 gauge wire. Gather two or three sections of leaves and wire them together. Leaving a 6" tail of rope take the sections and wire it to the rope.     Repeat, cover up the previous stems with the new section of leaves. Continue, making sure the garland looks full and the wires aren't showing.     If you would like to add fruit to your garland, take a piece of fruit and secure a piece of wire going through the skin of one end of the fruit using 24 gauge wire.     Make sure it is on tight or you will have falling fruit! Wire the fruit onto the rope and tuck the lemon leaves around it to hide the wire.     Voila! This pretty project can be done up to two days in advance of the event. Store it out of direct sunlight in a cool place and spritz with water twice daily.     Furniture and linens provided by Bay Area Rental Company: Abbey Party Rents

  • Project Design By: Victoria Hudgins  Photos By: Sam Pierson   Having a wedding in the fall doesn't mean that you are stuck with a palette the colors of changing leaves. This project is a perfect example of a way to incorporate pinks, pearls and oh-so-trendy neon even in the fall. With a bit of glitter and ribbon, pumpkins make an excellent table number presentation.     Step One: Cover each stem with tape or foil and spray the pumpkins with a matte white spray paint base. Once dry, use acrylic paints and a small foam paint brush to paint a color on. I used the pearlized paints from the Martha Stewart collection and they gave a gorgeous gleam to the finished pumpkins.     Step Two: Gather a selection of textured ribbon to use as the table numbers. The wide gold glitter was my favorite. Using glue, mold each section of ribbon into a number. Do this first, on a craft board or table. It makes attaching them to the pumpkin much easier.     Step Three: Using glue, attach each ribbon number to the coordinating pumpkin.     Step Four: Creatively display a grouping of pumpkins on a tabletop. Use old crates and small bright pumpkins to complement the pastel colors.     Tip: If you want your pumpkins to do double duty, you can turn them around so you don't see the number and adorn the front of your ceremony site! Be sure to enlist the help of a close friend to place the pumpkins on the correct tables during the cocktail hour. Voilá! Twice the design impact for one afternoon of work!

  • Project and Photos By: Chelsea Fuss   Have a 4th of July picnic, summer shower, or casual outdoor wedding to plan? Here's a red, white, and blue inspiration story from party planning expert, Chelsea Fuss!     Outdoor Party Venue: Chelsea chose a shady spot on a farm - a spacious venue for an outdoor party.     Foundations: She layered a red and white striped tablecloth with country-style patterned fabric for each place setting.     Simple Blooms: You don't need a lot of stuff to create a pretty tablescape, just a few fresh cut blooms from the garden will do.     Creative Glassware: Chelsea used glass milk bottles as vases, keeping with the farm/country vibe of the setup.     Color Palette: Although Chelsea chose a summer red, white, and blue color palette for this inspiration story, you can take note of her simple layering concept and apply your own colors!     Handwritten Charm: For place cards, she used handwritten name tags (which is a great idea if you're looking for ways to get your guests to mix and mingle)!     Summer Days: This easy and inexpensive concept can be used for any number of sweet outdoor summer celebrations!

  • Project and Photos By: Mary Swenson   There's no mistaking the lure of springtime and all of the colorful goodness it brings, but our take on a seasonal tabletop had us craving something a bit different than the ubiquitous dainty, candy-coated pastels of the season.     Instead, we combined a heavy dose of garden green with a pop of color and ended up with an elegant combination, straight from an early spring garden!     Our inspiration started with these beautiful, seasonal artichokes in the perfect shade of green.     Their sculptural shape makes them the perfect centerpiece, and clustered inside a big wooden bowl, no further adornment was necessary. The green patterned runner and napkins accent the color of the artichokes perfectly, making green the base color of our table.     Purple is an incredible compliment to green, and these tulips were the perfect way to add that bit of contrasting color to our table.     Since our artichoke centerpiece was the focal point of the table, we opted for mini flower clusters to accent the table and each place setting.     Silver votive holders were great vessels for our little bouquets!     With the woods from the tabletop and the bowl warming up our springy palette, this tabletop is fresh and pretty!

  • Project and Photos By: Mary Swenson   With just a minimal amount of elbow grease, you can turn old wooden boxes into rustic, one-of-a-kind centerpieces that will add a ton of charm to your tables!     Step One: Scour flea markets, antiques stores, eBay, or Etsy for vintage wooden boxes or crates. Boxes will come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and conditions, so give yourself ample time to collect ones that appeal to you and work best for your table sizes. Don't worry if they don't all match - chances are they won't, and that's part of the charm!     Step Two: We used a simple stencil and acrylic craft paint to put the table number on the front of the box. We recommend testing out your stencil technique on a piece of scrap paper first; using too much paint will cause the number to bleed at the edges, so it's important to first get comfortable with the amount of paint that will work best.     Step Three: Once the stencil is applied to the box and has dried, insert a plastic container inside the box to hold the water for the flowers. Cut a piece of floral foam to fit inside the container, and fill with water. Now you're ready to start filling the box with blooms!     Step Four: We loaded our container with ultra-pretty, cottage-y flowers and arranged them in a relaxed, casual way - a lovely contrast to the simple, rustic wood box.     Whatever you choose, you can be sure that this centerpiece will add something special to your tables!

  • Project and Photos by: Jennifer Kirk      Materials: Wood veneer edging Hot glue gun Glue dots Duct tape Cloth you don't mind staining Small can of wood stain (I used Minwax Wood Finish in Dark Walnut) Small can of water based Polycrylic Protective Finish Two sponge brushes Paper towel Popsicle stick or some other type of stir stick Scissors Glass votives (I found Darice 'Roly Poly' glass votives at the craft store for 50 cents each) Various succulents Small spoon for scooping soil Flat piece of cardboard, kraft paper, paper bag etc. to protect your work surface   To Put Together Mini Succulent Garden:   Step 1: Prepare your succulents. Using a sharp pair of scissors, trim cuttings from a larger plant and let cuttings sit indoors, away from direct sunlight for 1-2 days. The ends need to dry out and callous, otherwise the ends will rot or take up too much water.     Step 2: Add a couple scoops of potting soil (I used the soil already in my succulent pots) into the bottom of the votive.     Step 3: Gently flatten the soil with the backside of the spoon but don't pack the soil tightly.     Step 4: With the handle of the spoon (or another thin object) poke 2-3 holes in the soil.     Step 5: Tear off a small piece of paper towel and moisten the end. Wipe the soil off from the inside of the votive.     Step 6: Gently push cuttings into the holes you made in the soil. If the soil is looking dry, add just a bit of water.   To Create Votive With Wood Base:   Step 1: With a sheet of cardboard (I used a flattened cereal box) beneath, tape down a long strip of veneer. While duct tape has the strongest hold, you may want to place something heavy on the ends of the veneer strip to keep the strips from popping off your work surface.     Step 2: Open can of wood stain and stir with a popsicle stick. With a sponge brush, apply a coat of wood stain. Let sit for 15 minutes, the wipe and rub off with a cloth.     Step 3: Allow stain to dry for at least 4 hours or overnight, then with a clean sponge brush, apply a single, uniform layer of Polycrylic finish. Let dry completely, about an hour.     Step 4: Wrap a veneer strip around the bases of the votive to determine the length of the wood base. Mine were about 8.25" long. Cut strips down to this size.     Step 5: Glue ends of strips together with a modest dab of hot glue. Hold between your fingers (careful, this can be hot) for a few seconds until glue has set. Repeat for the remainder of the wood strips.     Step 6: To attach the base to the votive, stretch a glue dot and stick it to the upper, inside rim of the wood veneer ring. Apply another glue dot to the opposite side.     Step 7: Inset the votive within the ring and push down from on top with the flat of your hand to ensure a tight fit.     Ta-Da!

  • Project and Photos by Brittni Mehlhoff     Create hanging ombre signs for various parts of your wedding with this straightforward DIY project. Use the finished signs as bride and groom chair signs, a just married banner for the getaway car, or a special phrase that has meaning for you and your groom. The possibilities are endless for what these DIY signs could be used for, and you can customize them to whatever your wedding colors may be.     Materials: Cardboard or Heavy Cardstock Scissors Ribbon Pencil Hole Punch Spray Paint (one light blue and one dark blue) How To:     1. Start by drawing or tracing letters of your word or phrase onto card stock or cardboard.       2. Cut out each letter. Then hole punch each letter at the top.     3. Next, spray all of the letters completely with light blue spray paint. Let the paint dry completely before moving onto the next step.     4. With the darker blue spray paint, begin lightly spraying, focusing the paint toward the bottom of each letter to create an ombre look. Let dry.     5. Lastly, thread a long ribbon through the holes at the top of each letter and hang.     Ta da!

  • Project and Photos by Brittni Mehlhoff of Paper & Stitch   Add a custom touch to everything from centerpieces to guest favors with this DIY idea for mini monogrammed mirrored vases. Using inexpensive, but heavy-duty, glass votives, you can create small flower arrangements that will feel unique and special for your big day. And each one will only set you back $1.50. How's that for inexpensive?      You can even create a special message for guests, spelled out with letter vases. Or incorporate shapes and patterns for an unexpected detail that guests will remember.     Materials: Glass Votives Looking Glass Spray Paint Painter's Tape Scissors (optional)   How-To:     1. Start by blocking out the basic shape of the letter or letters you want to monogram or message, with painter's tape.      2. Complete any inner details, using scissors (if necessary) to cut any shapes for the letters that can't be made by tearing the tape. Press the edges down firmly, to make sure the tape is secure.       3. Next, in a well ventilated area, spray paint the glass votives and allow the paint to dry fully before moving onto the next step.       4. Once the paint is completely dry, carefully remove the painter's tape.     5. Next, add water and flowers to complete each piece.   Use the finished votive vases as tiny centerpieces running along a long table or as favors for guests to take home at the end of the evening.
