So i wanted the most possible blinged out card box without spending a fortune. I finally finished...
Ok, so I had this idea a really long time ago and finally got these just the way I wanted! I found these cute little jewellery stands from the dollar store months and months ago, and I altered them (which involved me busting out the wire cutters and paint!) to make them just right. I used the same cardstock as my save the dates. Actually I am using it for my invites, place cards, favour tags, etc also.
I had being trying to come up with something cool to do instead of regular table numbers, and something that would go with the vintage theme or that involved music (we are huge into music). Then I thought, what about using the dates as our numbers?! It'll be easy to keep track of and won't be too confusing for guests and goes with our theme!! We'll probably have around 20 tables at the most so we can use 1940-1959....Perfect! And to incorporate our personality a bit we've been scouring lyrics from our favourite bands to include on the cards...just cute little sayings or romantic lines.
Here's what we've come up with so far (if you have any other lyric ideas let me know!! we'll need at least 8 more. we'd like to use them from indie/alternative bands):
1. The National - "you know I dreamed about you for [twenty] years before I saw you"
2. Death Cab for Cutie - "so brown eyes I hold you near 'cause you're the only song I want to hear"
3. The National - "hold ourselves together with our arms around the stereo for hours"
4. The Postal Service - "I am thinking it's a sign that the freckles in our eyes are mirror images and when we kiss they're perfectly aligned"
5. Coldplay - "for you I'd wait 'til kingdom come, until my days are done"
6. The Shins - "lose yourself in lines dissecting love"
7. City and Colour - "Please know that I'm yours to keep my beautiful girl"
8. Matthew Good - "True love will find you in the end"
9. Matthew Good Band - " Baby, if I was in demand, you would be mine"
10. Foo Fighters - "Breathe out, so I can breathe you in, hold you in"
11. Spoon - "Nobody gets me like you"
12. The Flaming Lips - "Do you realize, that you have the most beautiful face?"
