Lauren and Adam are getting married this weekend and I thought that I'd share with you some final projects that were created for the reception.
Lauren had a difficult time figuring out which favor containers she liked the most and would work best with her vintage wedding theme. We got it down to a couple and I was so happy when she decided to go with the french provencal mini decorative canisters with lids.
We knew right away that we would create a custom sticker using the StickerYou stickers to personalize the cannisters. I created the art for Lauren and she printed the stickers. After hand washing all of the cannister, she added the stickers ... I think Adam helped out with the washing/drying!
Lauren hand punched the lace edge detail on small white tags using a decorative paper edge punch. I aged the paper tags using distress inks and then stamped each tag with the "thank you" message. Lauren used brown jute to tie the thank you tags to the cannister lid.
In case you missed it, I gave some details on how to use the paper edge punches and distressing inks in the escort card post here.
Lauren works for Cocoa Couture. She is a distributor for unique and gourmet chocolates and candies that are rarely accessible in Canada. Lauren filled each of the cannisters with "Cookies and Creme CH'Up Cakes". They are made from a solid piece of belgian chocolate with cookie pieces ... and believe me when I say that they are really, really good!!!!
The CH'UP Cake comes in four creative flavors and you can find out more about them here.
Lauren didn't want to clutter the guest tables with the favors and so she arranged to have a separate favor table set up at the reception. I thought that we should have some sort of signage for the favor table to thank the guests for coming so I made Lauren and Adam a couple of last minute projects that I thought would add to their vintage theme.
Using the StickerYou iron on transfers and some vintage linen dollies (that I picked up at a thrift store) I created some one of a kind "signs". Pictured above on the left you can see the linen sign"that I made for the favor table. The "take one" sign (also for the favour table) is similar to the table numbers that I designed and posted about here.
The last project is pictured above on the right. Another inexpensive thrift store find, a silver tray, made a unique welcome sign that Lauren can set up by the escort cards or guest book. I took one of Lauren and Adam's engagement photos, added the "love/laughter/happily ever after" wording and printed in onto a StickerYou custom sticker page. It was easy to cut out the sticker with scissors and apply it to the tray.
This morning, I was making a list of photos that I would like the wedding photographer to take at the reception. Lauren is going to let me share her wedding photos with you so that you can see how everything looks on the big day. As I was making my list I thought that it might be fun to do another free download with two wedding day check lists. One list was for the last minute things the bride (or groom) needs to do ("to do before I say I do")and the other list can be used to remind the wedding photographer of shots that the bride and groom need so they can enter the Creative Bag Wedding Contest!!!
If you want to download the art for my wedding day checklists you can find it here!
As always, the art is for personal use - no commercial use please.
Our Creative Bag Wedding Contest starts this weekend. If you want more details about the contest you can read about it here.
