The Wedding

Thank you all so much for your kind Anniversary wishes for my husband & I!    I really appreciated it!
______________________________________________________

Now, for a different wedding...........
My niece is getting married on Saturday!   

I wanted to share a few things I've been working on over the past month or so.  My niece wants a candy buffet & no candy buffet is complete without a sign....


...so using an old frame from a garage sale, that I paid $1.00 for, I painted this Love is Sweet sign.  I then added a little fall prettiness to the corner.  Did I mention all the candy will be in shades of orange, brown or yellow/gold?

Now for the card holder...what to do?  Funny, this is my old birdcage that I was selling in my garage sale a few years ago.  At the time, my oldest sister pulled it out, told me I was crazy, & took it home with her!  Now that I see it again, I'm not so sure my sister is getting this back!  lol  Why would I want to sell this in the first place?  What was I thinking?


The bridesmaids are wearing gowns in a deep purple...eggplant actually.  My niece really wanted to play up the Fall theme.  So deep purple ribbon & some orange flowers are all this birdcage took to look pretty.  Still wondering about adding a tiny pumpkin...

Next, we have the place cards.  Round & round we went trying to find something we liked.  Nothing that a little crafting & a spray of glitter paint couldn't cure. 


So there you have my wedding projects.  I can't believe the day is almost here!!  Hopefully I can get some decent wedding photos to share with you next week. 

Have a great weekend & see you soon!

Good Morning Gina, How exciting, I love a wedding. Your big sister was right about the birdcage, it is perfect for the card holders. Have a wonderful time on Saturday, I will be thinking of you. Best Wishes Daphne

funny about the bird cage. I cringe when I think of the goodies that I threw out or donated just a few years back when we were downsizing and before blogging. Looks like a fun wedding. Hope you can post more pictures after the event.

Everything looks so pretty and festive! I used to have a gorgeous bird cage...have no idea why I got rid of it. :( Some things are just not meant to give away. I've learned that wayyyy too late.

Oh well...great job and enjoy the wedding & party!

We did a candy buffet for my oldest daughters wedding. I had so much fun with it for a while I thought I wanted to take up the cause doing other weddings. I got over that.
