A Few More Wedding Pieces...



























I thought I'd show you a few more wedding projects we've completed. We adorned this plain flower girl basket (bought new from a garage sale) to coordinate with the ring pillow I posted about here.



























The champagne flutes are recycled ones that the groom already had.  We added vintage pearls and an earring to each one.  I really like these and just want to go sip some bubbly myself right now!

Lauren had seen this idea on Etsy.  How fun is this for the cake forks?! I took forks from my stash of vintage silver and hammered them myself.  (Which may be why the letters are crooked...)

I even found them a vintage knife in my bucket of silverware that will work perfectly for the cake knife.  Which by the way will only be a cake top.  Do you know that many people have fake cakes?!  You probably know that already, I didn't.  Then they serve sheet cakes to the guests.  Well, we aren't having sheet cakes, we are serving little desserts.  It didn't cost any more for desserts!  Yes, go figure!  I'm excited for the dessert table!  We're hoping to make a small tier of stumps to hold that cake top.  We'll see.  We're expecting quite a bit out of one tree and my husband!

  2. Great ideas for the wedding. My daughter wanted things a little different last year for her wedding. We had cupcakes for dessert--she wasn't a wedding cake kinda girl--besides the groom didn't like cake--only cupcakes--lol! Your wedding will look fabulous with all these unique items. Good luck to the bride and groom. LuAnn

  3. I'm loving all these wonderful wedding details that could be applied to other celebrations as well.
    I'm enclosing a link to our daughter's wedding cake - the wedding was last September and she used a split tree trunk to support the layers (of apple cinnamon cake). She also used smaller logs as plinths to hold vases on the table. (if you're interested)

  9. Burlap and Pearls....I even like how the two words sound together, let alone your gorgeous new flower girl basket! I'm so stealing, I mean borrowing that idea! Don't ask me why, but I thought, how cool would burlap placemats be with those flowers you made being the napkin rings? Set the table with old white ironstone...

    Love, love, love all your pearly touches on the fluted glasses, the hammered forks...all of it. You need to submit your photos to one of those wedding magazines...I'M SERIOUS!

  13. I used iron letter stamps from Hobby Lobby. I also have a set that I ordered from Harbor Freight that are smaller. Harbor Freight was really reasonably priced.
