I mentioned in my blog yesterday that while I haven’t been working on adding items to my Etsy Shop, I still have been crafting – but for me. On June 13th, Theresa and I will be getting married on our patio in a very simple ceremony and, just because it’s very simple, it doesn’t mean that there will not be some unique décor around!
We have a garden arch we will put up and decorate with twinkling lights (we have plenty of those!) and some glassware I’m creating just for our wedding.
These bottles are still a work in progress ~ I have waxed a couple of them and still need to do the others. I also will be working on creating fabric flowers to attach to the bottles; I’ve found some great tutorials on Pinterest and it looks pretty straight-forward. Something to do while binge-watching Netflix.
Do those curved glass pieces look familiar? They are the remaining two vintage glass shades from the ceiling fan upgrade I did not too long ago. I told you I’d find a way to use them! I am going to get a couple of small electronic pillar candles to put in there for cute lighting.
The colors I chose have significance – my dress is a dusty pink color and Theresa’s is slate grey. I am obsessed with the matte look lately on everything ~ it’s soothing, it’s relaxed, it’s elegant without screaming “LOOK AT ME!”
This is my first foray into wedding décor that isn’t theoretical – as in, it’s a wedding that’s actually happening! I’m sure between now and then I’ll have more tricks up my sleeve, but this is what I’ve been working on as of late.
