Wedding DIY: Table Decor

Along with the help of a fabulously creative family friend/designer person, we're doing our own table decor for the wedding. Every table will be slightly different and we're going with kind of a vintage theme using silver and glass and flowers and ivy.

So I've been rummaging through my mom and grandmother's kitchens and doing stocktake of their stuff! It's been fun! Here are just some of the things I found... (And anything with a tag on is from my mom's recent wedding decor shopping spree!)




Yes, our fabulous family friend can even make spoons look like decor items! (Who would have thought...)

And, uh, we'll obviously remove the biscuits from the cookie jar and figure out something marvellously creative to do with it. (And those flowers were from our we've-been-dating-for-FIVE-years anniversary last week! Soon we'll have to start counting from zero again ;-) )

DIY decorations can be just as pretty as the expensive designer ones. And it looks like you are off to a great start.

DIY decorations are the best - so much more personal and creative - and it looks like you've got some great stuff :)

I love DIY projects, and your vintage theme is a great one. Glass and silver, it's going to look beautiful!

You've got the makings of some gorgeous decorations there! And you will start counting from scratch again, but you'll most likely still count your years together too. That's what we do. :-)

Oh, very fun. Loving the decorations, you have good taste :)

On a side note. I finished Gaurdian and loved it. Planning to do a post with a review on it. Just wanted to ask in person if it is okay to use your cover in the post (of course it will be credited to your site here unless you want it done differently).
Chat with you soon!

How lovely... so classic and sweet. I love the fact that you are using vintage family treasures. There is a history in them and they will give you great joy. The love is passed from generation to generation.

As a designer, I make a point in using many family pieces to make their space personal and warm.

Congrats again Rachel.

Everything looks so nice! I really like the designs of it. There is a certain sense of classical that adds to the touch!
