DIY Wedding Table Number with Free Printables

DIY Wedding Table Number with Free Printables

As part of my recent wedding story for HGTV , I got to play with spray paint and create my very own mini pedestal stands.

As promised last week, I'm sharing today the tutorial on how I made my Rustic Log Cake Stand .

DIY Crepe Paper Flower Pomanders Party Decorations

I created this tutorial a while back for the Get Married website, but forgot to post it here - Tissue Paper Flower Pomanders ! These pomanders make for really nice centerpieces displayed under a glass cloche like I did here or you can glue a piece of ribbon to each pomander and make stunning hanging decorations!
