I love the idea of doing a candy buffet. So we are going to make this our favors to our guests. We are going to have some sort of bag or box with a sticker or stamp to make it more personal. Here are the vases and scoops (thanks for selling the scoops VA09) for my sweet treat candy buffet!!

The Real Thing =)

Credit goes to AshleyP she had this fabulous idea to set out anni cards on each table and instructions to have our guests write us notes for the future. I love this idea. My MOH will seal them up and then we will keep them until our first anniversary.

Here is what the instruction sign will say:

"Please take a moment to write us a note in our anniversary card. Your table number represents how many years in the future the card will be opened. -Mr. and Mrs. Walsh"

I was brainstorming theme ideas and I got inspired by a fellow PWer who made the most gorgeous coffee filter flowers. So I decided that I am going to go with an all paper flower wedding, paper centerpieces, bouquets, boutonnieres, pomanders, invitations, and all over decor. I love the idea because April is a really springy time of the year. Also I love that paper flowers will be unique and different but still elegant and beautiful. I have a year (and 3 days) to pull it off so as long as I get started early I believe that the undertaking of making thousands of paper flowers won't be too bad. I think the result will be very worth it.

Here are some of my inspirations... I will update with my own trials when I do them.

Paper Flowers GALORE photo 19 I love these for the colors. I think they would look great in a bouquet, boutinneer, corsage, or just scattered down the isle or on the tables.

Paper Flowers GALORE photo 20 I would love to wear something like this in my hair or have them decorate my card box or wish tree. Or I could go big and hang them on the walls or from the celing.

Paper Flowers GALORE photo 21 These would make gorgeous bouquets!!!

Paper Flowers GALORE photo 22 I love the idea of something like this as the big alter pieces or as centerpieces or... =) options are endless.

Paper Flowers GALORE photo 23 I love how dainty and beautiful this is!!

Paper Flowers GALORE photo 24 So gorgeous and SUPER EASY!

Paper Flowers GALORE photo 25 Can you say wish tree?

Paper Flowers GALORE photo 28 How cute for favors!!

These are all of the tissue paper flowers. I love them but they are ultra fragile so I am not quite sure how I will store them once I start mass producing. But I am thinking of using a combination of tissue paper and crepe paper flowers for my bouquets and boutineers.

These are my crepe paper flowers. I know they are the wrong colors, but it was just a trial from a kit. I love them, so I will use white and blue crepe paper instead. These belong in my bouquet and possibly centerpieces. I haven't quite figured those out yet.

We are getting married April 17th, 2010 at the Admiral Kidd Club in San Diego, CA. It is on the Anti-Submarine base on the bay. It is sooo beautiful. Our ceremony and reception are at this location. We will get married on a really cute little lawn with a cement isle that drops off into the bay water. There will be ships passing by, the city skyline in the background, and the sunset as well. We are getting married around 5 pm and our ceremony is a stone's throw away. It is absolutely everything and more than I ever dreamed!!
