They're Here!

I am so excited that the invitations that we've been slaving over for months have finally arrived! We couldn't find a design that we liked and everything I sort of liked, I wanted to customize so we decided to design our own. We also went through a fantastic printer and saved tons of $$$! Check out Mercurio Brothers if you are looking for affordable digital and letterpress printing.

DIY Table Runners

I've been obsessed with everything chevron for a while now so when I came across this photo - I knew I had to have chevron table runners for our reception.

Cards are for the birds!

I'm not really sure where the idea of using a bird cage to collect cards at a wedding came from. A quick google search did not reveal anything either. I knew that I wanted to use a bird cage at our wedding but I wanted it to be a real cage and not one of the white metal ones you find at Michaels. So I hunted the internet and scoured flea markets until I came across this little wooden gem on Etsy.

It needed some clean up but I knew it would look great on our gift/ cake table.

First I washed the cage. Then I cut a piece of foam to fit in the bottom of the cage and covered it in moss. A gray satin ribbon and a chalkboard sign with felt flowers complete the look.
