Pinwheel Paper.

I’m stuck. I’ll admit it.

I can’t figure out which papers I want to use for the pinwheels. Ack!!!

We’re going to get them from Pinwhirls. And they have a srsly silly amount of options.

My absolute favorites are under the Monster tag … but there’s like, A BAJILLION options.

Le sigh.

Bouquet, Bunting and Veil … Oh My!

Kath has been hard at work on some pretty awesome projects that are essential to what I have in mind for the wedding. Like … essential essential.

She’s making the bunting to go around the tables. And … of course … they’re polka dots!!!

And the veil.

And, finally, the brooch bouquet!!!!

Kath, you’ve outdone yourself. Thank you so much for all your hard work. It’s so greatly appreciated. I can’t even tell you how much.

Here’s a vague idea of what the reception will look like

The tablecloths will be white, but I figure maybe some colorful pennant banners will help spruce them up?

They’d go well with balloons and pinwheels, no?

Gimme a P! Gimme an O! Gimme an M!

What does that spell? POM!!! And, no, I’m not talking about the term for Brits. I’m talkin’ Craft Poms, yo!

The more I see … the  more I looovvveee. They’re so fun and colorful and child-like!!! Wahoo!! And, there’s soooo many ways you can use them:

And come in all sizes and colors:

You can even make a hamster!!!

Anyone got any better ideas?

So, I’ve been thinking about ways I can spruce up the reception site without forking over the arm, leg and half a soul it would cost for the professional decor job you see in movies. And can I just say … for someone like me, those frou-frou, hoity-toity gilded numbers are shit. Not the shit, just shit.

So, we’ve already been over the wonderful, fantabulous, splendiferous need for tons and tons of color … but, well … how? I was stalking my favorite bridal blogs today, and decided to click on over to the Broke-Ass Bride — who herself has a penchant for color — and discovered these two wonderful ideas:

Yes. Craft poms. Love.

She even mentioned filling a clear cylindrical vase with these bright beauties. Brilliant.

Let There Be Light

I’ve been considering various options for lighting for the reception, and aside from the *der* obvious tiki torches, I’ve found some other options.

Up up and away!

I love this idea. And the hotel said they’ve never had someone use balloons for most of the decorations. Cheaper than flowers, way more fun to look at and you don’t have to deal with wilting … as much.
