They call those under plates "Chargers", and seriously... I LOVE yours!!! How did you keep the spray paint from getting globby or runny? Did any of them turn out bad?
This is one of the best ideas I've seen in awhile... and I'm totally snagging it for my mental library of things I'd like to do <3

table decor -- you could do simple flowers... candles --- fish bowls and do red and white fish (just thought)

I'm getting married August 14th 2010 -- we're doing wild flowers and probably some little tealite candles -- simple simple simple is my motto right now!
Good Luck

We have our center pieces all figured out! We bought red silk flowers (marked down 75%), dried decorative grass and my fiance made beautiful wooden decorative sticks with dowel sticks and branches that were cut into discs that we spray painted with red spray paint. For vases we are using Bavarian Beer Glasses (75% cheaper than glass vases) and they work perfectly!


My fiance busy spraying his handiwork.


And yesterday we MADE our wedding rings from Art Clay Silver! I made Johan's ring and he made mine! It was a totally awesome experience - one we will never forget!
Check it out!

Preparing the venue the night before. Took a little longer than we anticipated (from 20h00 - 22h30), but everything looked great afterwards!

Congratulations!!! Everything turned out so lovely! I love the before and after of the restaurant... it really turned out so perfectly! I can't believe you made your dress, too! It fits perfect! And it looks like the weather gods were smiling on you, also!
