      @shanandcal- Thanks they were really fun and easy to make, probably one of my favorite things I made!

       

      @skygirl- the white shells we didn't supply, they actually came with the cake, and yes were white chocolate and really good :)

          Here is what I accomplished this past week:

           

          Our ceremony program fans

          My hands do sure hurt after cutting out all of these petals, but it was totally worth it.  I found some great white shimmer cardstock at Michaels craft store (and of course used a coupon) and used the shimmer cardstock for all the white petals and for my menu's (see below).  Unfortunately the picture really doesn't do it justice, the shimmer makes a huge difference and is really easy to print on.  I had a template from another BDW bride and changed the colors and style to fit our theme.

           

          Our reception will be at a nice beach resort just a few miles from Lindquist Beach.  We are having a buffet lunch, just because I couldn't decided what to eat :)  We wanted a very relaxing and laid back lunch.  Here is the picture of our reception area at Sunset Grille

          Sunset Grille.jpg

           

          Menu's

           

          Lunch Menu angle.jpg

          I used Microsoft Publisher to create the menu's and printed them on the same white shimmer cardstock as above.  I bought the Martha Stewart sand dollar punches and used that at the top of each menu so the underlying cardstock would show through.  I then couldn't decide whether to mount them on the turquoise or sea foam green cardstock because the seahorse background is a really nice light green and matched the green cardstock perfectly, but all of my other projects I had used the turquoise cardstock....So I decided to do half green and half blue and will have them alternate colors around the table. 

           

          I couldn't resist making these really cute cocktail stirrers.

           

          Coctail Stirrers up close.jpg

           

          I used some of our existing logos that I had made and used that for one side of the stirrer.  I created these again using Microsoft publisher.  I printed them on full sheets (8.5x11") of shipping labels, this made it so I didn't have to use glue :)  I just wrapped them around the stirrers and then just cut out the triangle to make them look like flags.  Here is how I picture them on the table

          Now of course I had a lot of extra paper and scraps that I didn't use for projects so I used my Martha Steward punches and made confetti for the ceremony and to decorate the tables during lunch.

          I'll be working on OOT bag items and sand dollar escort cards later today, so I will be sure to share them with everyone!

          Absolutely love the stir sticks! and making confetti, so resourceful

            Sorry should have switched the right and left shoe around so it read "I do" and "Do I"  guess I was too excited.

            Since our dog, Yoshi could not be with us, I made sure we still have a reminder of him on our wedding day :)

            Sadly the pictures just don't seem to do them justice, the colors are so much more vibrant in person.

             

            Until next time!


             

            These look fabulous!

              I love the yellow bucket against pink background. Pulls out all the colors in your shoes
