1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / attaching garlands to tables? on: July 15, 2011 03:04:19 AM
I'd been planning on attaching a string of vintage postcards to the dessert table at my wedding.  Unfortunately, with the wedding coming up shortly, I realized I have no idea how to do it.  I've seen a lot of pictures of things like that, so there must be a proper way to go about it.  If anyone has any idea how it can be done and wants to share, I'd be incredibly grateful.

I usually keep a matchbook on my coffee table to have it near for candle lighting.  I thought they were rather ugly, and I had scraps left over from other paper crafting projects, so I prettied some up.  These are a few of them.

My wedding is vintage, black and white, and dove themed.  This unusual combination means I've been doing a lot of handcrafting as well as thrifting and gathering things for it.  I wanted some doves to incorporate into my reception decor.  I thought I'd nest them in fanciful objects, so I used a lot of vintage things.

For the tall dove, I took apart some artificial flowers and put them back together into one big flower.  I used this is the the base for the nest.  It's perched on top of an old wooden candlestick I painted black.

The vintage urn is filled with Spanish moss, and has streamers of beaded trim and new and vintage lace.

The teacup, which I think I might modify a little still, was done largely the same way as the candlestick.
