Glitter Place Card Holders — #HANDMADEADAY

Hello, lovelies! These glitter place card holders we spotted over at Kara’s Vineyard Wedding are incredible! They’re ideal for a fall or winter wedding that could use a little sparkle & shine. They also work beautifully for a holiday party. Take a look — they’re available in gold, silver, rose gold, purple, or blue glitter and they are made from re-purposed cork.

“What Decorations to Use for Reception Wall?” – Ask Emmaline

Hi, lovelies! Emma here. When real bride, Cady, emailed us with a wedding decor question, we couldn’t wait to swoop in to help. She writes,

[su_quote cite=”Cady”]”There is a white wall behind my head table and it looks so bare. I know we’ll want photos taken of us during dinner, speeches, etc. Do you have any suggestions for what I can do to decorate it easily? I’m not very skilled at DIYs. Thank you!”[/su_quote]

Great question, Cady! There are many backdrops which come to mind, but my favorite and the easiest suggestion is a paper flower backdrop. Paper flowers are incredibly versatile. They can…

1) be customized in size: either big enough to cover a giant wall, such as a head table
2) tie into any wedding theme from vintage to modern (based on type of paper used, i.e. newspaper or book pages for vintage; brightly-colored or patterned paper for modern weddings)
3) incorporate your color palette with ease
4) be used as a chic photo booth backdrop
PLUS
5) be re-used after the big day as home or office decor

And since you mentioned that you’re not a huge DIY fan, you’ll be relieved to know that THESE paper flowers are handmade for you by PaperFlora, so you can let Natalie take care of the beautiful flower-making! All you have to do is order your custom colors, styles, and sizes; and then assemble them on your wall! It’s the easiest way to get a chic and stylish backdrop which will make your wedding reception pop.

Cute Wedding Countdown and Decor Sign All-in-One

Wait until you see this adorable engagement gift idea! The front side of this sign has a chalkboard countdown for the number of days until you’re married; the reverse side is a painted sign with a sweet love quote on it. Use it as a countdown at your bridal shower and the reverse as decor at your reception (and at home). This sign is completely hand-painted and hand-lettered — no vinyl or stencils used here! That means each piece is completely one-of-a-kind… and we love that. By Prairie Boutique.

How many days until you’re married? One of my friends is getting married in thirty-seven short days! And I can’t wait to celebrate!

State Stamped Cake Forks — #HANDMADEADAY

Happy Monday! Whew, what a fast weekend — but a great one at that! We’re kicking off the new week with our first #HANDMADEADAY find for the week. But first, have you stopped in at Woodenhive lately? Kerrie is pretty amazing: she turns ordinary vintage silverware into keepsake gifts by adding hand-stamped names, dates, and now — states! One of our favorite new finds in her shop is called ‘STATE IT’: a pair of cake forks with your state custom stamped onto the handle. Whether you’re from different states, you’re getting married away from home, or you want to show off where you met, this is the gift for you. I also love it just to show off your shared stately pride (go Michigan)!

Best Day Ever Banner — #HANDMADEADAY

Happy Weekend! When we told you about our new handmade-a-day series, we mentioned how we’d be unveiling a curated handmade item every day. That means every single day, all week long — weekends, too. :)

We’re popping in this weekend to share this beautiful decor find from The Lovely Glass Jar. This banner is large enough to make a dramatic statement anywhere you see fit: as a ceremony backdrop, as wall decor, or displayed above your dance floor. Here’s an example from a Real Wedding with a banner in gold:

Wood Letter Wedding Decoration & Felt Flowers

I never thought I could love felt flowers almost as much as the real deal. But awhile ago when we talked about these felt wedding ideas and I couldn’t believe how beautiful felt could really be. And with further digging, I spotted this wood letter wedding decoration over at The Felt Flower Shop and now I just adore all things felt. Take a look and I think you’ll see what I mean! (Oh, and this can be re-used after the wedding as home decor!) The ampersand is cute, too.
