Green & Gold Spring Wedding Inspiration

Simple Spring Centerpiece and table arrangement

Spring Centerpiece and table Arrangement

We love nothing more than the chance to collaborate on styled wedding inspiration shoots with some of our favorite vendors. In this design, bold greenery against a white and black table setting adds a pop of color to this beautiful arrangement. Some extra little green and gold accents really bring out the fresh feelings of springtime.  Vintage touches in the glasses and candle holders give the table a little something extra. This elegant table arrangement is perfect for any outdoor or spring wedding.

Luggage Tag Wedding Favors

Image

Luggage tags for wedding favors would be a great idea for a destination wedding! So creative and unique, and definitely something people would use again. Get them made in your wedding colors with a quote on them, a lyric from your first dance song or something memorable about you as a couple and the date of your wedding.

Big Fringe Garland

Image

Here is an idea for a party or wedding that could be hung as garland, used for a photo booth, behind a desert table, or anywhere you see fit. It is easy to make and adds a huge impact!

You will need: Folds of crepe paper, scissors & tape

Step 1: Cut the roll of crepe paper in half.

Step 2: Take the roll of crepe paper, with another persons help, and pull until most of the stretch is gone. Then, fold the paper together.

Step 3: Begin cutting fringe halfway through the fold, leaving some space in the middle.

Step 4: Turn over and begin cutting the other side of the fringe, making sure not to cut all the way through.

Step 5: Using tape, attach one side to the ceiling letting the other side fall to the ground. Twist the bottom to create twists in the crepe paper… and you’re done!

This is a creative and unique idea for a fall wedding, shower, halloween party, or even Thanksgiving decor! Hollow out a large pumpkin and place a similar sized metal bowl, or gallon bucket inside, fill with ice and stick your wine or beer bottles inside. Easy as that, and truly adds a fun touch to the theme that your guests will love! What other creative DIY projects have you done with pumpkins?

Wedding Table Numbers

This is a great idea if you are having water (or wine!) on the tables.  The bottles can double as the table numbers.

This is a creative and unique gift for a bridal shower or wedding if you want to give the couple a gift that is not on their registry and is super cute!

This is a wine basket with 6 bottles of wine with a poem attached to each bottle for the couple to drink for first events in their lives. Wedding night, first fight, first anniversary, first christmas, first baby, and first dinner party.
