DIY: Honeycomb Garland

10th December 2014

If you’re anything like me, you buy all these fancy decorations and then don’t really know exactly what to do with them placement-wise to make them look as spectacular as you would like. This idea from the clever folk at Oh Happy Day! is brilliant! I love how putting all of these honeycomb decorations bunched up together in one impressive garland creates a fabulous statement.  It frames the food table perfectly, and would also work for a sweets table adornment, behind the bridal party table, or as a photo booth backdrop. You could select colours that tie in with your…

DIY: Wish Bone Wedding

28th November 2013

In finding this fun little DIY, I recalled the time my mother diligently collected actual wish bones in the months leading up to my cousin’s wedding. That’s a lot of cooked chook and coleslaw family dinners, my friends! //// It was also a lot of discipline between us kids, because we all usually fought for the privilege of being on one end of the pull-apart with a chance to win that wish. Hey, it was the early 90’s, we didn’t have an iPod Touch to amuse ourselves!  So the plan for these wish bones was to have them cleaned up,…

Your wedding day will be one of the longest days of your life.
