    by Jordan Ferney   Make a cute and easy display for your pinwheel escort cards. For this project, we used a pretty floral origami paper. Origami works great because there is a different pattern on the front than there is on the back.     Supplies for Pinwheels: 1. Floral Origami Paper $5 2. Dowels or Pencils (the pencils work well because you can use the eraser for the pin.) $4 3. Map Pins $4 4. Scissors 5. Strips of cardstock for names For the Display: 1. Flat wood $1/each 2. String 3. Drill and drill bits       Step One: Cut the origami paper in fourths. Step Two: Fold the small square corner to corner in both directions.       Step Three: Cut along the folded line 2/3 of the way toward the center on all four corners. Step Four: Now you are ready to pin. Take one corner of each cut section and pin them all in the middle of the square then add the strip of paper before pinning it all to a dowel or pencil.        Step Five: Depending on how many pinwheels you have, mark the flat wood piece with a pencil about 4" apart so you know where to drill the holes. The holes should be the exact size of the stick. We prefer it like that so you can put the pinwheel as high or low as you want and it will hold in place. Drill the holes along the pencil marks.     Step Six: Drill a small hole on each side for the string to go through. Step Seven: Put the string through the holes and tie knots an equal distance on each side to hold the wood in place.     Step Eight: Assemble pinwheels in the rack and hand from a bush or a wall. For a display rack, we got some flat wood in the dowel section of an art supply store and then just drilled holes the size of the pencils.     You can create pinwheels to fit any color palette.     This whole DIY goes pretty fast depending on how many pinwheels you need. We did this whole project for $17.     Your guests will just love them - see!?!

    Photos By: Carly Taylor   Making a large expanse of wall connect with your wedding can be a hard task when working on a budget. Putting simple flowers up in an artistic array is the perfect solution.     This installation would be lovely behind a dessert bar, backing a ceremony, or on any wall where you'd like to add a bit of texture and style.     To create the floral wall you will need: A selection of florals that coordinate well with our day. Since you will only be using single stems, you could buy these on your own as a great way to save money.     You'll also need embroidery hoops, which are a cheap purchase at your local craft store, mine are each 10 inches, and tulle in a soft color to add texture and depth.     First, detach your embroidery hoop into two pieces and lay a piece of tulle over the bottom hoop.     The tulle needs to be cut about two inches larger than your hoop.  

    Arrange a few blooms in a pattern you find pleasing on the bottom tulle. It helps at this step to do your entire arrangement at once, giving you a chance to see how each small piece combines to make one beautiful artistic design.

    Once your blooms are in place, cover with a second layer of tulle, then place the inside hoop back into the piece. Doing this will pull your tulle taut. Secure by screwing the embroidery key until it is tight.

    Your flowers will stay perfect floating between the tight layers of tulle.

    Hang along your wall in whichever way your venue will allow.

    Are you a good baker? Then cut out the catering cost at your event and create your very own dessert table! With some jarred lemon curd, a quick swiss meringue and a torch, you can create lemon meringue tartlets in no time. Top them with some fresh blueberries and you have a dainty treat with a beautiful and natural color palette.

    You can find pre-made pie or tart shells at just about any grocery store to save many steps. If you feel a bit uneasy about making meringue, use a packaged vanilla pudding mix to fill the shells, and top your tarts with some fresh fruit tossed in a simple syrup or apricot glaze.

    Besides mini-pies, here's another idea: Fill your own tall and slender shot glasses with store-bought crushed chocolate graham crackers, vanilla pudding made from mix, freshly cut bananas, and some whipped cream. Drizzle some caramel sauce on top and sprinkle on a few dark chocolate shavings for an ultra chic version of banana cream pie.

    For a more personal touch, roll out some sugar cookies topped with a monogram motif in pre-made royal icing tinted with drops of food coloring to match your wedding colors.

        Get creative with lovely tulips or any other simple arrangement to accent your table.     Use fruit in season -- summertime tarts will make everyone really happy!     People tend to eat with their eyes, so elevate a plain brownie square with a little floret of espresso pastry cream, sprinkled with chopped almonds for a decadent take on mocha almond fudge.     Even if your wedding is on a budget, your guests will be impressed with these professional-looking (and tasty!) DIY dessert creations

    The creative force that is Jordan Ferney came up with this vintage soda bar for us - and we have been loving it ever since!

      There are so many to reasons to love a soda bar: they are in pretty glass bottles, lots of times with original vintage-y logos on the packaging, and they are made with pure sugar cane, delicious!     We had to bring back this popular feature and share the photographic inspiration from Jordan!     Old fashioned sodas add a fun and playful element to an event and can even be used as part of your decor.     We love them all set up arranged according to color or you can even just buy the color of flavors that go with your wedding.     Instead of keeping them on ice, refrigerate them up until right before and line them up on a table or bar for maximum effect.     You'll hear your grandpa excited when he finds his favorite soda from when he was nine!     The hardest part of having old fashioned sodas is sourcing them. They can be difficult to come by. If you live in California BevMo has a very large selection of specialty sodas (and even ships them online if you can't find something local).     Gourmet delicatessens and stores can also have good selections and we've even got lucky before at warehouse stores like Costco.     Add some fizz to your wedding day with gourmet sodas!     Project and Photos By: Jordan Ferney

        First, make sure you use a scoring board so folds and lines are straight and precise.     Origami patterns are really gorgeous and add interest to tables, invitations, programs and more. They are also inexpensive!     For place cards, we measured and cut the Origami paper into 2" by 4" strips and folded in half using the scoring board. We cut 1" strips and created a "ribbon" v at the end using an x-acto knife. Use a dab of glue on either side to secure.     We love the minimalist combination of the Japanese patters with sweet handwriting. Consider practicing your best (or quirkiest!) handwriting and then color copying your favorite draft.     Origami paper makes a beautiful envelope liner! Simply trim the sides to fit the envelope, slide into envelope and secure with a glue stick.     For save-the-dates, color copy handwritten invitations onto postcards. Trim the patterned paper to size (using a rotary cutter) and then using an adhesive glue (a glue stick works too) we secured origami paper to the back of the card. It's makes for a gorgeous pattern-play!     Here are a few tips for working with origami paper: 1. Pair the origami paper with a heavy white card stock for areas that need text. 2. Origami paper is very easy to work with and is a perfect weight (not too heavy, not too flimsy!) 3. Even if you don't consider yourself crafty, give it a try! 4. X-acto knives and rotary cutters used with a straight edge help to get those perfect lines! 5. Consider your color scheme and try to keep the papers to a one, two or three color story.     For programs, simply fold the paper in half (using the scoring board if you want them extra neat).     Color copy a handwritten program (this works great for menus too!) and then cut to size. Fold card stock in half. Tie together using waxed twine.     Have fun creating your colorful, patterned paper goods!

    6. Create a cork monogram! 

    In her DIY winery wedding, Tara's uncle used hudreds of corks gathered from friends, family, local wine bars, and even Whole Foods to create a commemorative "M", which stands for the couple's shared last name and now sits in their new home. Talk about wedding decor that will last a lifetime—we love it! Photo by Aaron Watson Photography. 

    7. As unique window decor 

    We love the way Rachel and Craig covered each of these empty wine bottles in a special design. The collection looks especially charming with the hot Texas sun streaming through. Photo by Taylor Lord Photography.

    8. As the wedding favor 

    Print custom wine labels that match your wedding decor and hand out the bottles as favors at the end of the night. Guests will remember the good times they had when they're drinking from them later on! 

     9. As Lighting

    A hot summer wedding calls for a strapless dress with a long, easy-fit skirt, don't you think? This look is perfect for a carefree beach bride who still wants to radiate a little elegance. Keep accessories consistent: a bevvy of flora-inspired gold jewelry dresses things up, and gladiator sandals in the same tone will keep you standing (and dancing!) long into the night.

    These sweet little kabuki streamers are the perfect way to aid the bride and groom in a colorful sendoff!     They're a festive solution for the finale of your party, when bubbles aren't desired and confetti is not allowed. They make a very bright and pretty showing and stay completely attached so there is no mess to pick up afterward.     Materials: Crepe paper streamers in three coordinating colors. Coordinating paper and scissors. A needle and thick thread for attaching. A heavy paperweight & a small piece of tape or label to close off the project when completed.   Directions:   1. Lay out all three colors of your streamers and cut each into 25 inch sections. You will need one cut section per streamer or each guest package.     2. Layer your streamer layers on top of one another, with all three colors and weigh down one side with a heavy paperweight   3. Begin to cut up your streamer section in thirds. You will make two cuts vertically up the streamers to leave you with three skinny sections.     4. Cut decorative paper into 2x4 inch pieces to use for wrapping the streamers.     5. Using a needle thread, thick string through your paper and tie off twice to produce a small finger loop. This will allow your guests to slip on the package for good throwing grip! You could also use ribbon for this step if desired.     6. Dab a bit if glue on the inside of the paper and attach one section (all three colors) of your skinny ribbon to the far left side. Repeat this step in the center and right side. You will end up with three sections, giving you a total of nine streamers to work with.       7. Secure your streamer paper under a weight and working one section at a time begin to roll up your streamers tightly toward the top. Roll each section separately and be sure to keep your streamers tight for small rolls.     8. Once all three sections are rolled up, finish off your package by securing the paper with a small label or tape.       Your guests will have a splendid showing of streamers to wave!      Project Design & Styling: Victoria Hudgins Photography: Carly Taylor

    By ohhappyday.com   This is for those brides that have figured out a great favor to give, but need some packaging to make it pretty.     I prefer making the tassels out of crepe paper versus tissue paper because there is no glue needed and the crepe paper takes about five seconds to shape while the tissue paper takes a lot of time to "poof." These are really easy and really affordable to make. Here's how!   Materials: Folds of Crepe Paper Scissors Chinese Take Out Containers

    Step One Take a section of crepe paper that is folded in half (about 5" long when folded) and cut off very thin "sections."     Step Two Put two or three of the "sections" together (you'll want to test a few to get it the right thickness depending on the paper) and twist tightly starting in the middle.     Step Three When the middle section gets twisted enough let it naturally loop and begin twisting the crepe paper around itself (If you are attaching it to the wire handles you'll need to wrap it around before you twist.)     Tip no. 1 The stretchiness in the crepe paper will help it hold and stay tight.     Tip no. 2 The fewer sections the better it will hold. You should find the happy medium between making sure it holds tight and having a nice amount of thickness.     Step Four Very lightly "crunch" the tassle in your hand to give it a little body and trim it with scissors to even it out.

    The latte bowl is having a wonderful design moment this year. Coming out at every store in the most beautiful hues, textures and styles. Grab a stack of coordinating bowls and bunches of your favorite flowers to finish off reception tables with a beautiful touch.     Using latte bowls as centerpieces gives a gorgeous presentation to flowers, allows you to use fewer stems (which saves money!) and they are low enough to allow guests to see each other and chat across the table.    1. Collect anywhere from 1-3 bowls per table in coordinating colors and designs. Place a small floral ball in water to soak for hours before putting the centerpieces together. You will need to make these on the day of your event, so enlist the help of a good friend to do the final put together and placement.     2. Carefully poke 3-4 stems of your favorite fully-blooming flowers into the balls.     3. Mist to keep florals alert just before table placement.       Project and Photos By: Victoria Hudgins
