I'm sure you are wondering what's up with this title right? Well, sweet little Carolyn of Draffin Bears tagged me today and I decided it would be fun to play along. After all, she was tagged by Sares of Loveleigh Treasures and the game just keeps going and going so let's keep it going just a little longer.
So here goes...I'm supposed to go into my photo files, click on the 6th file and post about the 6th picture. Why do I have to post about the 6th photo in the 6th file? Heck I don't know but it was fun going back and reminiscing because those photos are well over a year old and before I even started blogging!
This photo was a little snippet of the items I created for a wedding for a dear friend's granddaughter. Starting from the left, I made:
*bookmarks for the guests, custom printed with the couple's engagement photo and their favorite quote
*Thank you cards for each table
*I beaded the wine glasses for the wedding party
*I made the white satin cones with silk flowers (there were 2) to hang on the front doors of the church
*I printed the invitations on striped card stock
*I printed the reception menu for each table setting
*I wrapped all the utensils in napkins. I punched a fleur de lis on black card stock strips for the wedding party tables. I printed the Harley Davidson logo for the groom's table and the black & white floral ones were set for all of the guests.
This was a LITTLE snippet of what all I did for the wedding as it was all a gift from me. I decorated the reception hall and I hosted her bridal shower at my home before the wedding! Like I said, it was for a dear friend Rose, who's first granddaughter was getting married. Rose was my (late) Mother's best friend so I thought Mom would be mighty proud of me and wished she were there to help me. Well, she was there in spirit because I don't know how I had the energy, the creativity nor the time to do all of this!
I made the table centerpieces in the crystal vases above and printed everything needed for the reception hall, food and tables.
I just love those beaded wine glasses!
ooohhh the wedding topper was gorgeous!!!
and if you are wondering, NO. I did not make either of the cakes! :)
I must stop because I could go on and on.
