Apparently it’s wedding season. I wouldn’t know, because this year we have not been invited to one single wedding! This definitely gets an exclamation point, because as exciting as they are, they’re expensive. Especially since most of our family and friends are in other states. I love you all, but maybe you should consider a Northern California wedding. I mean, could you get a more beautiful destination? Okay okay…Hawaii is definitely more beautiful. And quite possibly the only place in the US that would cost more than Northern California.
If you’re about to attend someone’s wedding, I have a DIY to share with you. For the past two family weddings we have attended, I have picked up a few things at the reception, and made them into ornaments for the bride and groom. This past year, it was wine corks. As pictured above, I took three wine corks from the reception, added their wedding date in glitter (everything is better with sparkles), hot glued them together, and added a hanging bow.
The year before, I took flowers from the centerpiece. I traveled with them across the country (I should definitely get an award for this. Or at least a back pat.), and put them in a glass bulb ornament for the bride and groom. Tie a little ribbon to the top and voila!
Both ornaments were well-received, and now they have something to hang on their Christmas trees from their wedding day.
