I worked on a few projects this weekend - wedding projects. They are by no means close to being finished, well, maybe the hair flower. But here's a little glimpse -
1. The hair flower - So I made this one last week - the big one :
And then I was at Michael's again and I saw some other flowers that I really liked. They're made out of pine cone chips! And they were a little more the right size. So today I made this one:
and I like it quite a lot!
2. Table Numbers - Steve and I have talked a lot about what we want to do here. Something cute? Like areas in LA that mean something to us? names of roleercosters? But nothing felt right, like we weren't doing it to show off or be unique. Then, when I was at Michael's, I saw a wood-burner (small pen like tool used to "draw" pictures into wood) and though that could look simple, classic, rustic and be something fun to make!
Since taking these pictures, I went back to Michael's and bought some stain for the wood, so they will be a little darker wood color. Looks very nice! And I think it will match the wood of the barn better.
3. Place Cards - I've had this idea for a while (and seen it on some blogs recently, of course) but finally tried it out this weekend. The idea is writing everyone's name and table # on a rock (originally i was going to try to collect them in Santa Cruz or some place meaningful - but I think it's just easier to buy them) And I started with people that I know for sure will be coming:
