A special wedding welcome

My daughter Carol and her husband Clarence wanted to be sure every guest at their wedding felt welcomed, and they wanted that welcome to be very personal.  They decided to give each guest a lei greeting and take a photo with them.  We set up a table for the lei:

The pennants were cut from the Perfect Pennants Bigz die and embellished wtih the new Needlepoint Border TIEF from the Spring catalog.  I also used the fabulous new 5/8 inch flower trim from that Spring catalog – THANK YOU STAMPIN’ UP!, your timing was impeccable!!  And if you are wondering about the color scheme, we used Blushing Bride and Pear Pizazz – both retired In Colors from 2010-2012.  Again, Stampin’ Up! had incredible timing as these two colors of cardstock (and a number of related accessories) hit the Clearance Rack just when I needed them!  I had been hoarding bits and pieces, but with all the paper I bought I was able to do anything I wanted!

Check in later this week – I have more photos for you to enjoy!  It was such fun to create these small touches for my daughter’s wedding day.

  1. Anne, Everything looks so beautiful & elegant!! Love the pennants! I just noticed the embossing on the top of the pennants! Can you just store those away in a little box labeled “Cheryl’s daughters”?


    1. I can’t take any credit for it, Joann, but I agree – it was very thoughtful. The wedding coordinator said she’d never seen it done, and a couple of the guests from off-island were especially thrilled to receive a lei. The nice thing was that everyone was wearing one.


  2. Love the personal touch of the leis! Such wonderful friends to help out in such creative ways!~ Love it all~ Great job team! Congratulations Anne! 🙂
