Hiya there *waves*
This post is a little different to what I have posted in the past, I am feeling brave and as usual any feedback is more than welcome.
I am always trawling other people’s blogs and Facebook pages for ideas and inspiration or just to be plain nosey! I thought I should make the most of my trawling and note down some of my favourite things I come across… so here goes…
Today, I have been looking into decorations that can be used for any of your upcoming events, be it a wedding, party, family meal or christening party, literally anything! Not only are they adaptable, BUT, you can do them yourself. I will be linking you to the creators’ blogs which have DIY instructions, enabling you to have a go at home! Fantastic stuff, yes?
1. DIY Doily Table Runner
I came across this idea whilst flicking through a booklet that came through with my You and Your Wedding Magazine Subscription. The doily table runner would be perfect used in any wedding design, be it modern or vintage as you can dress the table according to your theme and use bright white doily’s or coloured one’s for a modern theme in comparison to grandma’s vintage doily’s for a vintage theme.
If you would like to know how make these yourself, pop on over to Under The Sycamore for a list of instructions. It’s so simple and effective!
2. DIY Floral Letters
Now, I don’t know about you but I LOVE this idea, I want to go out right now and create a set for my house… just because!
I think, it really goes without saying that this idea is 100% suitable for any event in any theme. You can never have too many flowers, right?
For the DIY instructions for this make, pop along to Honestly Yum. (psst, I have just bookmarked Honestly Yum, Fabulous blog!)
3. Mini Message In a Bottle
Well, aren’t these just adorable? They are mini bottles with lovely touching messages inside, that would put a big smile on anybody’s face… I envisage these being great for a beach wedding or a garden / barn wedding; it’s all in the way you display the bottles. They could also double-up as escort cards too!
For the step-by-step instructions on how to create your very own message in a bottle, pop over to Living Well Spending Less.
4. Framed Table Number
This is such a pretty DIY make and oh so effective. I have chosen a vintage styled option, but really the options are endless with this type of creativity. You could literally fit the framed table number idea to any event decor you have in mind.
You can find the instructions over at Project Wedding.
5. Herb Napkin Ring
I have to say I am completely in love with this idea, I can just imagine the smell of the fresh herbs drifting around the venue and can picture myself sat in front of fresh rosemary, waiting for my roast lamb to be delivered to me! This is honestly, such a simple make and very effective, in a subtle way.
For instructions on how to make the herb napkin ring, pop over to Gardenista, and have a look.
So, there we have it, my top 5 DIY wedding decorations, that would add the finishing touches to any of your events. I would love, love, LOVE to see how any of you get on if you decide to have a go at creating any of them, please do send me a picture and as always feedback on my blog posts are more than welcome. I want to hear from you!
