Emici Bridal update

Sadly the lovely yellow silk pomanders were sold out and to get new custom ones made was going to cost $45/each! (Modern Bride should know that the $15 price tag was false advertising!)So, I called upon my mom who is very crafty and she's up for the challenge. She glanced at the photo and accurately identified the silk blooms and french wired-edge ombre ribbon. In an instant she had ideas and is going to make a couple of mock ups for us to decide which we like best. For my part I ordered some wreath stands from Save-on-crafts so that we can display the floral beauties along the aisle during our ceremony. Can't wait to see her designs!

Candy table favor

Today I also snagged some glass apothecary jars, small and large glass jars, and 5 oz. metal scoops for our candy table favor buffet. Save-on-crafts is a great site to pick up such things and also has links for DIY brides. Project Wedding has a Candy Table 101 section that also gave me some fun ideas and links for supplies. I'm going to pick out navy, yellow, and white candy to display from the Candy Warehouse and leave either favor bags or boxes for our guests to fill up and take away. I'm sure there will be plenty of late night snacking on all the sweet treats!

Snow Train!

Just purchased this cute poster which will be placed into a frame over a sheet of metal so that our escort cards can be displayed on it with cute handmade ski magnets! The magnet project supplies have been ordered and include mini Sno-Skis from Moose-R-Us (same ones we're planning on using for the boutonnieres), craft glue, and sheets of adhesive magnetic backing. I'm also going to add navy and yellow ribbon which I will pick up at the Paper Source so it matches the ribbon I'm using for our table tents and other items.
