If you’ve been following along with my BIG DAY Pinboard, you’ve probably noticed a theme… succulents and gold. Succulents are earthy, gold is glamorous… together they are wedding decor perfection as far as I’m concerned! Of course I would love to claim 100% originality for this theme, but of course that’s not true. Each one of these pictures represents a specific craft or DIY project I’ll be doing in the next few months. Let me explain…
Sequin Table Runners // My mom and I bought 6 yards of the most amazing quarter sized gold sequin fabric last weekend. We’ll be creating table runners for our long farmer tables.
Glitter Mason Jars // I really wanted to avoid mason jars in my wedding… It’s so over done, and I’m not into the “shabby chic” look. However, our venue requires a specific candle holder size, and it happens to be exactly the same size as a mason jar. I’m hoping that with some gold glitter we can glam these jars up a big.
Gold Leaf Terra Cotta Pots // One of the easiest projects on my list is to paint some gold leaf on plain old terra cotta pots!
Mini Succulent Favors & Place Cards // Each of our guests will have a little plant (in a gold leafed terra cotta pot) on their place setting. I’m also going to create a flag with their name on it so they’ll know where to sit!
Wooden Box Centerpieces // My mom and I found a guy in an ally downtown that will make us 50 of these beautiful wood boxes for a bargin! Then we’re going to fill them ourselves with plants.
We better get busy! Thank goodness for moms, dads, fiancés and bridesmaids!
