    Project By: Victoria Hudgins Photos By: Prokopets Studios   Want to leave your ceremony in style? There is no better way to do it then under a canopy of flying confetti! Here is a fun way to present the confetti to your guests; be ready for a colorful shower of love!     Materials: Vellum paper, scissors, a small hole punch, embroidery thread, a needle and a stack of scrapbook paper in your color palette     Step One: The first step is to make the confetti, which is the easiest part but also the most time consuming. I would suggest tackling 20 sheets or so each day over a week. More than that and your hands will get VERY tired. To make the confetti, simply punch holes out of the paper, easy peasy!     Step Two: Next, cut the hearts from your vellum; you will need to cut double the number of confetti packs you hope to make.     Step Three: Once everything is cut, lay the hearts out and top every other one with a handful of confetti. Top the bottom half with another vellum heart.     Step Four: Hold one end of the heart and starting at the bottom, begin hand sewing around the other side with embroidery thread. Make about 7 stitches around. Do not sew these too tight and leave a decent length of thread at the bottom of each heart. Tie once at the bottom, in a lose knot. The idea is to keep the confetti in but to allow your guests to easily pull the thread right out.     Lay out your hearts with a note of instruction for guests to pull the thread and throw up their hearts when it is time. A beautiful shower of bright confetti and iridescent hearts awaits your finale.     Tip: Be sure to check with your venue before planning this project- not all venues allow you to throw confetti or rice. Happy hole punching!

    Using watercolor in your wedding can be an easy way to add both color and pretty artistic flair. Make drink tags, escort cards, or favor labels with these easy instructions.     Materials: You will need watercolor paints, paper tags, a white crayon, a paint brush and water.     Process: Write in your details on the paper tag with a white crayon. I did a combo of table numbers and simple words to show how each would look. Be sure to press firmly with the crayon.     A preview of the finished product. Loving this vibrant orange.     Dip your brush in the water and the paint, before stroking lightly over your tag.     Mix colors and do a couple coats to ensure good texture.
      The watercolors will not adhere to the wax portion of the tag where the crayon has left its mark.
      What a difference adding favor tags makes! Let dry and attach to your favor or item of choice!     Lastly, get creative and have fun!      Project Design By: Victoria Hudgins Photos By: Carly Taylor

    If embossing seems like a formality beyond your budget. Not to worry! It's a very easy craft to learn and will give your papers and packaging that polished look. This particular project shows embossed favors, but you can use the same tools to emboss your invitations, menus, programs, or save the dates!   You will need... A craft heater, available at most craft stores. A jar of embossing powder, which will last you through hundreds of favors boxes and other projects, a stamp in the words of your choice and a white stamp pad.     Step One: To emboss favor boxes, start by stamping the box with a very wet stamp. Take extra care to ensure the entire stamp has been covered before pressing down. You could use other colors but I love the look of embossing with white for a traditional wedding.     Step Two: Once the favor box is stamped sprinkle a generous amount of embossing powder on top of it.     Step Three: Use the heating tool to dry and heat the embossed word on your box top. It will bring pretty dimension to a simple statement.     Step Four: Tap the extra powder onto a sheet of paper for re-use!

    Travel expert Jetsetter.com gives us five key tips for planning a wedding abroad! (expert advice)

    By Geraldine Campbell for our sponsor, Jetsetter.com

    Wedding planning is an exciting, emotional (sometimes exasperating) endeavor – and plotting your nuptials in a far-off place is no different. The advantages of a destination wedding are many: For one (let’s be honest), saying “I do” abroad limits the guest list. It can also be easier (yes, easier) to plan, since the resort’s on-site coordinator can handle everything from photographers and table arrangements to goodie bags. Not to mention: exchanging vows on a sandy beach with your friends and family? Priceless. We tapped the travel experts at Jetsetter.com for their top tips on making your destination wedding go off without a hitch.

     

     

    1. Do your homework

    Different countries have different requirements when it comes to non-natives getting married on native soil. In France, for example, a proper wedding can be un nightmare: The 40-day residence requirement is just one of the (many) steps required. In Bali, a legal ceremony is considerably easier, although, you and your honey have to be the same religion. So, wherever you’re dreaming of tying the knot, know what you’re getting into. 

     

     

    2. Have a symbolic ceremony

    If you don’t want to deal with overseas bureaucracy, get married stateside (pop over to City Hall for a quickie or, better yet, hop on a flight to Vegas) – and have a non-civil ceremony in your destination of choice. No one will be the wiser.

     

     

    3. Make considerations

    For your guests, a destination wedding can be significantly more expensive than a domestic affair. Do them a favor and give fair warning – six months at minimum (a year is even better). Also, consider ditching the registry. If you’re not willing to forego gifts completely, include inexpensive items on your wish list.

     

     

    4. Stay in one place

    Honeymooning where you get hitched means you can go from reception to relaxation mode without the hassle of planes, trains and automobiles. It can also be cost-effective. Resort wedding packages often include a free stay for the bride and groom. Everything is negotiable and if the hotel isn’t willing to put you up for a night or two (or longer), ask for an upgrade.

     

     

    5. Get inspired at Jetsetter.com

    Jetsetter has hotels in every corner of the world – and a perfect destination wedding spot for every personality type, whether you’re an adventurer, a foodie, or a romantic!

    Infused Water Table Numbers



    Indoors or out, warm-weather weddings call for plenty of liquids for your guests. Keep everyone hydrated by placing bottles of flavor-infused water (we like mint, strawberry, and cucumber) at each table. They can also double as your table numbers!

    By: Carly Taylor   Spring weddings should be easy to enjoy with pretty flowers taking center stage. These painted glass vases will give your tables a subtle design edge with even just a few floral stems.     Collect many different glass vases from thrift stores, left over bottles, etc. Purchase a couple of water-based paints in the colors of your choosing. (hint* you can even bring an item or fabric into the hardware store for them to match a color for you).   In a large basin, mix 4 cups paint with 1 cup water, stir well.       Begin taping off your vases to the level you would like the paint to reach. Vary the levels on your vases for a pretty aesthetic.     Dip the vases into the paint and swoosh to cover the entire bottom portion.     Turn the vases over on a drop cloth, and allow at least 24 hours dry time.     Peel off all tape and using a damp paper towel, remove any residue paint (since your paint was mixed with water it will come right off).     Leave your edge straight for a clean look or you can make a jagged edge for added effect.     Set your vases somewhere dry and let the paint set for another 48 hours before using.     The possibilities are endless for color combinations!     Fill with a few stems and group for very pretty table arrangements.       Enjoy!   {Photos By: Carly Taylor}

    Canelé cakes originated in France, where they were popular starting in the 19th century. Today you can find them at most bakeries. The little cakes are about three inches tall with a caramelized crust, and a custard in the center. You can make your own or order them in bulk from a bakery. We've created a cute, modern packaging for a wedding favor.   Materials: Canelé cakes  bright tissue paper string  pinking shears white pen white round sticker

    Step One:

    Cut a 6" by 6" square of the tissue with pinking sheers (use two pieces per cake)

      Step Two: Write the name of the guest about 2 inches from the bottom of the paper. Once it's wrapped up it will look like the photo below.     Step Three: Roll the cake in the tissue and fold over the end of the paper onto the bottom of the cake.     Step Four: Secure with a sticker.     Step Five: Twist the top tissue and secure with string. Trim if necessary.

    This centerpiece is stunning - mainly because of the vibrant blooms!      Materials: 10 red, white and pink anemones  5 mini daffodils 8 orange, red, and white ranunculus (better if blown open) Ranunculus greens and buds English daisies in pink and white (cut from 2 plants) Modern vase Rocks Chicken wire or a flower frog Clippers

    Directions:

    First, fill the vase with rocks half way up the vase. Fill with water. Start filling the vase with stems. The rocks will keep the flowers in place and help you create the shape of your flower arrangement.     Try to create an "s" shape with greens and lighter flowers cascading to the right and diagonally across at the bottom of the vase.     Place larger blossoms at the bottom of the arrangement and lighter smaller buds and greens towards the top.     We added a table number made from a simple number sticker purchased at a grocery/drygoods store...     ... and a painted horse for some humor!     Tip: To make this arrangement more budget friendly, substitute more greens for flowers. The recipe is made of spring flowers. For a summer or fall version substitute with: dahlias (the single petaled varieties would work great), iceland poppies, garden roses, peonies, california poppies, daisies, roses.   Photo By Chelsea Fuss

      Supplies: 1. Metal Zinc Tray 14"x14"($10) 2. Wheat Grass Seeds($4)  3. Potting Soil ($8) 4. Gravel for Drainage     Step One: Put a layer of gravel to help with drainage. The metal tray we used did not have built in drainage so the gravel helps with that. Step Two: Put a layer of soil on top of the gravel, make sure you leave 1/2" of the metal vessel showing. Step Three: Put a generous layer of seeds down, make sure it is even up to the edges. Step Four: Cover the seeds with a .25" layer of soil. Pat down.     Step Five: Water the seeds with a gentle flow of water (either a watering can or a paper cup with holes punched in the bottom)so the seeds aren't washed around. Keep in a sunny area and water daily, keeping the soil moist. Grass should be ready 7-10 days after planting.     This gorgeous wheat grass is 14 days old.     The grass will eventually look overgrown so you'll want to test it in advance of the big day so you'll know what works best for you.     Wheat grass is an easy way to liven up a spring or summer event. You can use it for seating cards or even incorporate it into centerpieces.     For the seating cards, you will need the cards and popsicle sticks ( $2 from a craft store).     Wheat grass seeds can be bought at a health food store like Whole Foods. If after a week of growth you notice bare spots you can move the grass that is full around to cover it and give it a few days to grow in.     Voila! Your gorgeous DIY project is done!     This seating card display costs under $25.     Happy DIYing!
