She shared a DIY project she found via Martha Stewart that she is considering for a centerpiece idea. Now just last night I was facebook chatting with my coordinator trying to show her the ideas I had for my table numbers (markers). I wasn't overly thrilled with any of them but knew I wanted something with a picture of us on it and something somewhat different.
These were some of the ideas I shared with Amanda from In the Now Weddings:
These are all great ideas but I just wasn't in love with them. Then I saw the following idea over at Gonna Be His Mrs.' blog:
As soon as I saw it, I thought "Man, I can put pictures and a table number in that and it will be totally different, pretty and compliment the place setting which will already have tall floral arrangements with simple votives around it. And so on my way home from work, I stopped at the Dollar Tree and bought 3 frames for $1 each and grabbed a pack of vellum paper at Michael's. Here's what I quickly printed off my computer in 4x6 sizes for the frames:
The little graphics on the table number image are from our invitations and will be incorporated throughout the wedding. I was trying to think of how to include them on the tables and this is the perfect way!
FYI: The little glare/flash you see in the center only shows up like that in the pictures. The actual mockup just has this gorgeous flickering light and no glare like that :)
I had the mockup sitting on my table when my 20 something girls showed up for bible study and they all fell in love with it, too. They said they had never seen anything like it and it was a great idea.
So thanks to my fellow blogger friend for sharing a fantastic idea! (swoon) So tell me what you think ladies. And what is something you found on a blog that you just had to do/have for yourself?
