~Our Renewals~ Hey my WBC family! I've been a little hush- hush lately. Our 14th wedding ann...
Just thought I'd share some of my favorite recent purchases for the wedding, in case it catches any one of your eyes too. :)
Let's start with the thing I'm MOST excited about? Our favors. Here, take a look! Each napkin will get a different magnet and a different trivia card (still to be designed).
Here's how all 450 of them arrived:
Where'd I get these? Etsy, of course! Flower Bucket Boutique to be specific. Jamie was SO GREAT to work with and she immediately understood my vision. I picked a few of my favorite fabric options, and just told her if she needed to get other types of fabrics, pick with whatever she felt worked. And man, did she deliver! And QUICK! (It took her about a month, and I kept telling her "No rush!") I can't imagine how long it would take to make 450 of these bad boys. Also picked up some really cute hair flowers from her and she has TONS of cute stuff at her shop.
Love her little store header:
"Boutique quality at budget prices" pretty much says it all!
Next, these bows from GiftWrapEtc. will go on the back row of chairs at the ceremony. 6 for $9.95:
(I'm putting one bow on every 4th chair, and the back row will be about 40 chairs, so my order was $20. Yes! And I ordered 10 swatches for $2, so I knew for sure which colors I wanted. I know most of my colors are corals and yellows but I wanted to switch it up a bit. These ship flat, and you pull a few strings and voila, you've got yourself a pretty bow.)
Here's my inspiration for the bows:
And, from JoAnne Fabrics:
Total impulse buy. Picked these up last night, at 30% off. $4.89 a piece. Will use them along a ledge at our reception hall, and are lighting each one up with these miniature lights from Overstock.com. Also plan on mixing some interesting looking clear glass jars to the mix for a little more variety, which I already had, and some summery silk flowers for texture and dimension.
Have you had any successful shops lately? Anything that surprised you?
