Tie It In with Ribbon
Perfect for showers or a creative cake option at your reception, these petite layer cakes are topped off with fondant and embellished with flowers. Cut these tiny delights from sheet cake using round graduated-size biscuit cutters. For clean edges, freeze the cake and thaw slightly before cutting.
Use a Unique Vase
Incorporate brown into your scheme by adding beautiful ribbon and patterned paper. Whether it's on a menu card or invitation, the ribbon detail adds an elegant touch without your having to spend big bucks.
Add Special Spark
Bring character to your centerpiece by incorporating beautiful vases. Whether it's a collection of your own or borrowed vases from friends, this unique look will be loved by all.
Include Your Initials
Light up your wedding table with a votive candle creation. Place a votive candle atop a sprinkling of colorful beads, candies, sand, or miniature shells to create a warm, romantic glow.
Place a Vase within a Vase
Make the initials with flower petals wired or glued to a wire form. This look is easy to make and can be used at home for a smaller wedding, bridal shower, or reception.
Show Off Your Menu
Start with an inexpensive clear fishbowl vase. Place white candies in the fishbowl to hold a second, smaller vase in place. Use the narrow interior vase to holds a few inches of water and a bundle of flowers tied with a ribbon.
Craft Easy Invites
Providing a menu card is a special perk for your guests. To create this look, place a stunning menu card under a clear glass plate for a distinguished look. First measure the size of the plate well. Size and print the menu onto vellum. Use a circle cutter to cut the menus to fit the plate wells. Punch a hole in the top of each menu and loop a 12-inch-long ribbon through each hole.
Create a Unique Cake Topper
Incorporate your colors into your invitation with unique paper. To make this simple retro invitation, print the words onto vellum. Attach to cardstock with brads or ribbon. Voila -- instant invitations!
Personalize Your Favors
Use a lightweight wooden vase with a small display of roses to make a one-of-a-kind cake topper. Work with your baker to be sure your cake can support the weight of any topper you choose.
Make Use of a Tin Bucket
Favors are the perfect way to add your personal touch. For this easy DIY project, small green-and-white boxes serve as wedding favors and place cards. Cover craft boxes in scrapbook paper and top with silk flowers and a sliver of coordinating paper with the guest's name.
Renew Your Place Settings
Use a tin bucket to add a bit of country flair to your centerpieces. This inexpensive look is great for outdoor weddings. Let your guests take the arrangements home with them at the end of the night so they can continue to enjoy your arrangements while you're on your honeymoon.
Grass Name Card Holder
Accessorize your place settings by slipping a green menu card into a napkin. Menu cards aren't necessary but are an easy personal touch for your guests.
Dress Up Your Bouquet
Use a circle of pristine turf to hold guests' table assignments. Color is subtly infused into the arrangement with rose petals. Use a yellow ribbon to wrap around the base of the sod.
Add a rhinestone butterfly to a golden yellow and peach rose bouquet. Bold bouquet jewels, like this butterfly, or subtle accents, like petite pearls, are simple ways to dress up an arrangement.
Include Elegant Candles
Create paper butterflies by scoring, folding, and gluing to a corsage pin (with a pearl head). For an extra touch, attach them to realistic pear candles. Purchase custom-printed ribbons or try hand-stamping your message onto the ribbon.
Drink Up a Signature Cocktail
Decorate short, medium, and tall glass hurricanes with ribbon sleeves and monograms and then fit with white pillar candles -- easy and elegant.
Be Creative with a Favor
Incorporate your color scheme into your cocktail hour with a signature drink. Sugar-coat the glass rims to complement the taste of pomegranate martinis, or try versions flavored with orange and apple juice.
Make a Modern Touch
Brown-pattern paper makes a beautiful wrap for this recipe card favor. Layer bands of cream and brown ribbon along with a brown-and-cream paper monogram to hold the envelope closed.
Use Pretty Paper
Inexpensive and easy-to-make chrysanthemum balls are eye-catching floral touches for the ceremony and reception. Make chrysanthemum balls by wrapping 3-inch foam balls with chicken wire and inserting the flower stems.
Choose stylish solids for your wedding stationery wardrobe. These beautiful invitations are paired with a chartreuse envelope for a simple but elegant look. Coordinate ribbon to give a personal touch.
Incorporate a Bold Ribbon
Iced with the bride's and groom's initials, these colorful confections make the perfect favor. To master the piped-on initials, first trace computer fonts on printed paper and practice before lettering the cookies.
Wrap your bouquet in a beautiful bold ribbon to incorporate your color scheme. Don't be afraid of using a larger ribbon for a dramatic effect -- think of it as another accessory.
