    Thanks, you have no idea what a huge inspiration you were to me.  I was almost disappointed when you wedding day came b/c I knew your planning thread was soon going to be finished.

          Will do and thanks for all the info you provided in the Grand Sirenis thread.  Our group is dropping by our house this afternoon to pick up their tickets so hopefully it will be an opportunity to get everyone really excited !

                Great idea.  I saw some luminaries on here that I loved and didn't even think about making them on my own. Duh!  :-)

                These were super easy to do once I figured out what size I wanted them to be.  Using left over invitation paper I cut the colored paper into strips and folded them in half and printed names on the cream colored paper, cut them into rectangles and glued them onto the cardstock after that I just stuck on a starfish or a sand dollar.

                I picked up these unfinished frames from Michaels for $1 each and painted them.  Using burlap I had left over from the napkin rings I glued that to the insert and then printed off the table listing and glued them on.  The starfish on the corners are paper using my craft punch.

                I had some vellum paper and had no idea what to do with it so I started looking at luminaries and thought I could make these.  Another trip to the dollar store for some vases and a little playing around in Word to get the right size and I have table numbers.

                 

                More to come,

                  Thanks for sharing - I may just have to try to DIY some luminaires myself now!  Everything looks fantastic!

                    Today my mother, aunt and myself made cookies for the In Flight Snack Packs that I'm giving out at the airport (only 2 more sleeps!).
