I got my Craft on!

There is nothing like putting a wedding on with basically a very small budget.  I became the queen of HL coupons, Michael's  coupons...etc.

I had seen some of these banners on Pinterest, so I got out the glue and used stuff from my stash.  This banner only cost the price of the large letter stickers.

I also made the reserved signs and place cards - all from "scraps"


The flower girl, my gd, decided at the last minute she wanted a corsage.  All the others were already ordered, so I put this one together.  It was sooo cute, even if I say so myself!


The centerpieces were goblets upside down on mirror tiles.  At the wedding we put candles on top, but the wind would not let them stay lit.  Some guests turned the glasses over and put the candles inside and lit them.  It worked, but now I have some dewaxing to do!


This is my banner.  We took it off and had pictures of them holding it...I hope they turn out cute!


Here is the set up...before we had to lay the cups over because of the wind.

Ok, I hope I am not boring all of you with wedding stuff....but this was a big event in our lives.  I am still a bit giddy that it all turned out pretty and everything went smoothly.  The Lord answered our prayers....some that I won't share, but trust me....some big prayers answered here.  And thank you to my blog friends who said some of those prayers!!

Be careful! You could become a wedding planner at this rate. Beautiful work on everything, which all looks so festive and beautiful.

Everything looks great, Ceekay! Love how crisp and pretty the red and white looks. You did a great job on the banner and the little corsage is adorable. Love the sweet little dress you tucked in!
God is so good and it's wonderful when we can see His hand working.
