Wedding Creations/Plans

My little sister, C is getting married on Saturday. It has been busy, busy, stressful , busy. I made the ring bearers gifts for C. Because her fiance is such a big Superman fan, I made capes for the boys.

Last night, we bachelorette partied. For a quick and easy decoration, I took some old glass bottles (Kroger salsa, Taproom beer, and curry sauce) and spray painted them hot pink. (Love Joann's coupons for 40% off!) After letting them sit in the sun for a couple of hours, I tied a bow around each using black ribbon. Kroger had a double dozen roses for $9.99 so I divided them among all the pink "vases". The attendees then got a little swag to take home- fun, pretty, girly, and cheap!

Today, I am working on a little crafty and useful wedding present. Tomorrow is bridesmaid luncheon, rehearsal, and rehearsal dinner. Saturday is the wedding and reception, followed by another reception for a different wedding, and then dinner with family. I hope to snag in some visits with out-of-town family members. Guess that means I should get out of my pjs...

  1. First of all a big congrats to your sister and i read the article and you got incredible work in your sister wedding ceremony.

  2. What a clever idea to make the capes for the boys. The pink bottled swag was great as well! Way to recycle. ;) I'm sure both the boys and girls loved their swag. Great to meet you via Tatertots and Jello.
