I love to be crafty, always have. Being able to create, especially re-purposing things by finding new ways to use something to meet a present need is one of my absolute favorite things to do. So when I got engaged, I knew it would be a crafty wedding!
What I didn’t realize at the time, is just how much crafting there is to do for a wedding. Especially when one sets a $1000 budget, a 2 month time frame, and invites just over 200 people!
Good thing I come from good crafting stock and have friends and family galore that welcomed the opportunity to get their craft on as well. I NEVER could have done this without their help.
Here are just a few of the pics of the amazing creations made for our wedding ~ oh and if you need someone to help create/decorate for your next event let me know I have the dream team 🙂
Brownies made by my Stepmom, she surprised me and baked them all saving me hours of time 🙂 She even made a heart shaped one for us to cut, with a topper, and brought all the tiers to serve them from. The sunflower picture in the back is one of mine.
The centerpieces were created from reclaimed limbs my husband collected, made into logs, drilled and put tea lights in, plus leaves, acorns, berries, and pine branches collected from nature, flowers from Sevier Blumen, in jars from my sister-in-law, and some tulle and burlap. Due to overwhelming demand, we have now made the centerpieces available for purchase HERE.
Here is the snack table which was decorated by Anne and Kimberly. My Mom, Robin, Stepmom and Auntie made all of the snacks and punch.
The guest book and cards table, full of pictures of family members who weren’t able to attend, brought by several other family members, and Hershey Kisses from my sister. The guest book was put together by my husband and will be full of photo booth pics from guests which will be placed with their words of wisdom, prayers, advice etc,.. Oh and the table cloths are all from different Grandmothers 😉 The painting is one of mine as well.
What kinds of things do you like to create? I’d LOVE to see your creations.
