DIY Projects – Table Numbers June 18, 2009

So here we are, the first of the many detail oriented posts I neglected to write in the last few months! For our table numbers, I knew I wanted something artsy and unique but not too labor intensive. After a long search for the right vintage looking frames, I found some simple textured gold ones at Costco – yay for cheap wedding supplies by the pound! The frames cost $15 for a set of three, and I then I bought some super cheap art books at a used bookstore. A couple wooden numbers from Michael’s, some black spraypaint, and little glue and voila! Even in my completely ecstatic and overwhelmed emotional state at the wedding, I noticed them on the tables and thought they worked out really well with the rest of the table decorations. Here they are lined up on my dining room table:

A Pink and Orange Reception August 26, 2008

Speaking of Kiso Fotografia, how about these gorgeous pictures of a venue I very nearly chose for our reception, the North Bank Pavilion. The problem or perk with this place, depending on your mindset, is that it comes as an entirely blank slate. It’s just a room. With enormous windows and lots of metal. This bride warmed up the place with bright coral colors and fabulous hanging paper flowers that I am totally in love with. Her pearl beaded headband, which is like a tiara but with a more grown-up vintage vibe is adorable as well.
