Hi ladies so here is a DIY project that I've been working on today. I went on Dollar Tree website...
So I have made a couple honest-to-goodness discoveries in this whole wedding planning process....1.) I am super anal, 2.) I am super detail oriented. ha! Maybe I knew I was a little anal but really, I think I use to flatter myself that I was laid back as well as under the misconception that I have no knack for details. Apparently everyone around me knew these things about me...just not me :)
So my last meeting at the Church/Reception area I brought 5 boxes of things I wanted to set up before hand to see EXACTLY how it would look on the day of the wedding. I have had such a vision in my head and I've been pretty anxious that the vision won't match reality. The two main things I set up were my S'mores station and one of the guest tables.
S'mores Table - The tall vase will be filled with graham crackers, the apothecary jar will have pink/brown large sized marshmallow and the small glass jar with chocolate and the side tables will have the s'more roasters, vases with the roasting forks and a paper decorated vase with white alliums.
For awhile I was worried the table clothes for the S'mores tables were too short and I wanted to get long ivory table cloths to put under them to hide the table frame....but once I set it all up I REALLY loved the cute, fun look it has with the short table clothes.
Guest Tables - 10 tables with ivory table clothes and alternating between brown with pink polka dot tops and pink with brown polka dots. I only have the brown with pink table top cloth pictured. Since we're just having desserts we are using small plates and forks. But I still wanted to have place settings so that the tables didn't look so bare. It still looked empty with just the place settings so I added the boxed favors! And the centerpieces will be filled with water and have a floating candle at the top.
I am really excited to see what it all looks like put together! The columns pictured in the reception hall will have pink and natural colored paper lanterns hanging along and across the room!
Take a look! Tell me what you all think!!!!
3 days to go! And today I locked my keys in the trunk! I'm grounded until my fiance can get here and let me into my car.
Coming up next.....THE COMPLETED OOT BAGS!
