Wedding Table Decorations

Hello, Hello!!

I had told you before about my sister's wedding a few weeks ago, gorgeous!! Here are some great pictures of the tables we decorated (all pictures were taken by her great photographer Kevin Lush).

We used pictures from my sister's engagement pictures.  We used a different picture for each table.  The "head" table (or sweetheart table) for the bride and groom had pictures of my sister's two cute dogs!

Head Sweetheart table

Here's some of the other tables...


Here's a closeup (in case you aren't' tired of pink and green yet) ...

We rented the flat bowls from a local party store.  Me put clear and green rocks at the bottom of each bowl.  We filled the bowls with water and floated pink rose candles on top.  Except, the candles we cut off the wicks and glued on a pearl in the center of each one.  Beautiful!! We also tied green tulle around the bottoms of the bowls and tied a knot leaving a small tail.  The bowls sat on a square mirror.

For the table numbers I cut out the pink square topnote from the Cricut basics font on Cricut Craft Room.  I cut it out at 8 inches.  We framed each picture in green paper (all paper was from hobby lobby and was textured)

I cut the numbers from the Alphalicious cartridge about 2.5 inches, and then added a cream colored shadow to make them stand out a bit more.  We put the same picture/number on each side so you could see it from all sides of the room.

For the entrance to the reception we made a big HUGE table seating board.  We bought a big foam board at hobby lobby and covered it with pink fabric. We printed the names in ABC order and gave the table number next to their last name.  We framed the names in green and attached them with upholstery tacks. Great hammered silver finish.


Last but not least (should have started with food) are the favors.  We bought little pillow box sets from Wilton (it totally wasn't worth cutting a hundred of these with the cricut). We printed her new last initial on the stickers and wrapped them up.

Oh, yeah... inside are those amazing little butter mints!  Jumbo size! even better....

Happy crafting!
