Unfortunately I lost my granny and grandpa fairly recently and we really wanted to remember them in some way and also have some hilarious pictures of me and Dec and all our guests so we decided on a photo board!
Well today was the photo board day, the original plan was to get a heart shaped one, but seeing as I couldn’t find one (a serious gap in the market for any of you lovely etsy people looking for a sales idea) I ordered 2 rectangular cork boards with the intention of cutting a heart shape out. But then… they arrived and I just didn’t have the heart (hah! Unintentional pun alert!) to cut them up.
So I’m halfway through the first one, I’ll put the two together eventually. The photos aren’t stuck down yet because I want to possible add a bit of lace and stuff. I’ll keep posting updates on them.
Thank god for my mum, here is the pictures from our centrepiece making bonanza that occurred yesterday! I went and bought out pretty much the entire Taskers supply of flowers and we put the Christmas table cloth down and rolled up our sleeves!
We now have 14 beautiful centrepieces happily sitting in my parents garage and another day booked in to make some more!
I love that each one will be unique and homemade, that’s exactly how I pictured my wedding decoration. Next stop is the fairly lights!
If you have read this blog you will probably get the (completely correct) impression I like to bypass subtle and go for full over load on things. So I am making some centrepieces and I have decided to enlist the help of mummy womble, firstly because she’s fab and secondly because I feel like I want a lot of centrepieces.
So my question is, how should I arrange them? Just have them dotted along the table? In clusters of 3? arranged round a central larger arrangement? Give me inspiration WordPress world! Pics of the 2 I have made so far below along with 2 bigger bouquets I made a while ago.
Also FYI I have been saying for ages I want autumnal colours but… what can I say I think pink kidnapped my brain and now I don’t want to turn back 😂
So I know this is a bit early but we went for a little try on just to get an idea of what’s out there and… I sort of fell in love with a wedding ring!
It’s so completely different to what I thought I’d want but I just put it on and that was it! Just gotta get it in a size big enough to put on my actual ring finger now 🙈🙈🙈
I think I might call him Nigel.
