I blinged out my cake server. This was such a great find, I beieve it's technically a guest gift on most websites, so I found it for around $4. I thought the "high heel" shoe was adorable. I just added my own bling to the handle.
I made 2 different hair flowers. THe ivory one I will be wearing for the wedding. The black and ivory one I will be wearing for the rehearsal and dinner. These were super easy to create and didn't take much time at all!!
I've seen a lot of brides doing this for their table numbers and just thought it was the cutest idea ever!!! So here is my take on it ;)
SO I found this beauty at a local yard sale for $5.00. Of course when I purchased it, it was a light pink. My fiance painted it black for me and added the knob to the door. I added the flowers and feathers ;) I also made the sign, keeping with my paper theme, and wrapped a ribbon around the cage to hold it in place....
So in keeping with my theme I decided to make reserved seat signs for our ceremony. I also used the same idea for my "mint" to be sign...which will go on a large brandy glass that is full of matchbook mints (I'll post later). I used the same curvy outline and pink line with rhinestone as most of my other paper projects.
My fiance and I decided to have a candy buffet at our wedding. So, I decided that our guests needed to know what exactly it was they were getting ready to put in their mouth. Since we are having a black and white themed candy buffet, I personally knew I would NOT want to pick up anything that was black licorice...YUCK!! lol....
but seriously, I found this template for a curvy outline and used it to make my candy labels. I'm also using it as my reserved seating signs and a few other stationary projects. Again, I went with a solid pink line with a rhinestone, which also ties into other paper creations!!
The whole label is actually 3 seperate papers stuck together. I used a white linen cardstock for the label, a striped cardstock for the backing of it, and a black linen cardstock to feed the ribbon through that I will use to attach to the jars.
