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:
One thing I have to make clear before I go any further is that when I say “we” I mean Crystal. Honestly, if you are planning a wedding you need a lot of friends to help! Crystal has a great designer’s eye, and she offered to set up decorations at the reception site while I was being MOTB. We did lots of pennants – sorry to say I don’t have photos of all of them. The bird cage (courtesy of Cheryl) was to hold cards and our idea of a guest book. Wish I had another photo of those goofy birds at the foot of the birdcage – they were hilarious – and 75% off after-Christmas clearance!
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.
