Fabric & Lace Ceremony Backdrop
I used a lace tablecloth and two bed sheets for the backdrop. Just cut everything into strips, iron the fabric and tie to a rope. I found the paper flowers in the $1 section at the craft store but you could also make paper flowers.

Yarn Poms
These don’t take much time at all to make + the possibilities are endless. This tutorial shows how to make them!

heart lace

I went to every thrift store near my house and picked out random vases in random sizes, just whatever I thought looked cool. Then spray painted some of them to go with my color scheme. I love how they look alone and I love how they look with flowers too.

Bride and Groom Signs
Just take some thin cardboard, draw out the letters, cut them out, paint them with craft glue and dip in glitter. Hot glue them to your twine, done!

Little frames
Some of the frames I found in the $1 section of my favorite craft store, some are from The Organic Bloom. I just put some fabric inside to dress them up a little.

Embroidery Hoops
Pull some fabric through your hoops and then get creative. I stamped the word love with some red paint in one hoop, I even made a bunch of pink rosettes and then glued them on the fabric. The sky is the limit!

Thumbprint Guestbook
You can easily make your own thumbprint guestbook! I used canvas paper and sketched the VW love bug by hand. I found a frame (which I spray painted red) w/ pink matting at the thrift store.

Your Local Thrift Store
Remember to check out your local thrift store for lots of cheap finds! I thrifted the china, table cloth, pink antique window, embroidery hoops, colorful doilies, the pink quilt used as the photobooth backdrop, the pink frame used in the photobooth and the pink cake table there.

Thanks so much to all these vendors for sharing their talents today!
