I love being able to speak with engaged couples and make their vision become a reality. Weddings DO NOT need to break the budget in order to be tastefully elegant. The large 2'X4' chalkboard hanging above was made for under $12...mimicking the one I found at Hobby Lobby for $69! Crates were washed to give them an old look by using steel wool soaked in vinegar. Entire Popcorn bar (minus the popcorn cost...that will vary with invited guests)....$140. Popcorn Bar set up from various caterers (NOT including the popcorn)...$260~$425! Save yourself the money and DIY! :)
This project was lots of fun to create, but it is time consuming. Do not think that it is something that you can create in 30 minutes! Plan on spending at least 4-5 HOURS on these projects. Some can be completed in as little as 90 minutes, but the more complex it is...the more time AND patience it will take! :)
Old Book...or one from the local thrift or dollar stores
Standing up........................................or laying down
both options give you a unique look
Breast Cancer ribbon in the center
(lighting was not good and this was the first attempt at the ribbon...sorry)
You can even create letters, names, etc.
The instructions for these are extremely complex and difficult to get from my head to the paper. Please be patient and I will have them up as soon as I can.
Thank you for your continued patience as we try to figure out what is wrong with our pictures and instructions not showing up.
We have done something different with today's post that will (or SHOULD) automatically post at 1:00pm. If all goes well, and it DOES post at 1pm, we will know what to do to get the last 3 segments fixed and posted as soon as possible. :)
