ugh, I know I promised to show my decoration for my ceremony…I have recovered a few..the photographer only took a few…and I didn’t bring my camera…waaagghhh…
Anyway… I will share what I have…like my menu chalkboard??? :) It is only a canvas that I bought on sale for 2.50 at Michael’s and spray-painted black…the chalk wrote very well on the canvas!
This penant flag was created my daughters! :) we cut them out from card stock…on the blue we drew the stars with chalk! This hung above the food tables across the pavilion!
The flowers were hand-picked at the park and put in mason jars for the tables…we created the tags from scrapbook paper…we cut out the saying and tied them with ric-rac ribbon to the jars.
These are cupcakes! So delicious…they were made by an army wife ! :)
Between the posts of the pavilion we created a vintage clothesline of memorbilia from our real wedding and generations in our family that have served the in the military, as well as medals and awards my husband received recently!
Oh yes! And we added a few LOVE letters from dating and deployment! :)
“I like you” one of my favorite vintage children’s books! So of course I had to impart some of it’s charm…..here in scrabble letters !
Jars were filled with vintage looking candy, paper airplane gliders in vintage paper, and metal yo-yos, ect… Lots of fun!
This was my guest book table….my letters from my soldier, I spray-painted this once hot pink LOVE to use as a paper weight on the guest book! The napkin….a keepsake from our wedding 15 years ago!
My friend and I made six cherry pies…with star-shaped centers…and a vintage sign! There was a pie for each table.
I found this plate at a thrift store for a buck –fifty! I was so excited…this was perfect for my little patriotic ceremony, this also had some sentimental meaning…as my mom used to give a turn with the plate on birthdays, ect. I’m happy to share the tradition with my kids…I think it’s great to use on days we just need to remind our children that they are special!! :)
I LOVE my vintage photo props…these were made from bbq skewers (I spray-painted red) , felt, and a hot glue gun. We had lots of fun with these!
I might have went a little crazy with the chalkboard signs…but they’re just sooo cute!
Actually….I think I’m just addicted to chalk!!! :)
Yay for no sew bow ties!! These were fun to make and at a cheap price of 3 bucks for five bow ties…you cant beat that! The paper pinwheels were super easy to make and I loved how they all turned out!
I will be posting more decor soon….:)
