Inspiration for your road to the altar

This project is so adorable (and looks so tasty) I could hardly wait to share it with you! I think just about anything in a mason jar is instantly charming, but red velvet cupcakes? Such a lovely idea. The spoons tied to the jar with bakers twine is really a finishing touch and I am pretty sure these would be perfect for showers, wedding favors, even hostess gifts. You can find all the instructions and many more pictures on the fabulous cakies blog. And as the stickers say – enjoy!


I know this idea will be a painful one for a lot of book lovers, but I think its such a fabulous project! The talented Lindsay of Living With Lindsay posted the tutorial for these paper wreaths after seeing them at a garage sale, but if you aren’t feeling very crafty she also sells them in her Etsy Store! These would be adorable hanging on the doors of a church, or maybe even a smaller version on the back of the bride & groom’s chairs at the reception. And as Lindsay clearly proves, they will look lovely hanging in your house after the wedding! {Found via Creature Comforts}


Hand Painted Teacups

April 15, 2010

This hand painted teacup tutorial on Etsy is such a cute idea! It would be a great way to personalize a gift for your tea (or coffee) loving bridesmaids, and it could even make a really fun shower activity. The paint has to dry for 24 hours, but if each guest painted a cup and saucer for the bride and groom, they would be all set!
