Sweet Signage: DIY Mini Paper Garland

diy mini paper garlands

I think it’s pretty much guaranteed that if you take any wedding day detail and scale it down to a miniature version of itself, you instantly get super sweet results. And that’s exactly what happened when we took inspiration from all the great wedding banners out there, including those in the Weddingstar lineup, and created a DIY mini paper garland cake topper for an editorial in the latest issue of Weddingstar magazine. As soon as the charm of the handcrafted came together with all things tiny, we knew we had created something special. For all of you that would agree, here’s the step by step on how to recreate the look, including a couple alternate versions, because we just couldn’t resist the opportunity to make more!

Look #1 – Pattern Fun

The Supplies

  •  mini kraft paper pennant garland 
  • craft paper with pattern designs of your  choice. We used two different patterns and alternated them.
  • fabric ribbon (available at most craft specialty stores)
  • mini letter stamp (to create a monogram)  and blue ink pad
  • skewers
  • scissors and glue gun

The Step by Step

diy mini paper garland how to - steps 1-3

Step 1: cut two separate pieces of garland, 6 pennants in length each, or more if you’d like a longer banner.

Step 2: cut a piece of fabric ribbon into the pennant shape shown above and stamp on your monogram.

Step 3: cut your craft paper pennants, just slightly smaller in size than the pennants on the banner. The banner has three different sized pennants and we covered the two largest ones with a dedicated pattern each, leaving the smallest as is.

Step 4: glue your craft paper pennants onto your banner, alternating your pattern as cut, then connect each separate banner strand to either side of the fabric ribbon pennant. Let dry.

Step 5: when completely dry, attach the completed banner to the skewers.

The Supplies You’ll Need for This Look:

To get this look first decide on the length of your banner, then attach a globe charm to only the largest pennants and finish off the ends of the banner by gluing on satin ribbon garlands. To create the ribbon garlands simply cut a few strands of ribbon in both colors, then cut those in half for a thin and delicate finish, create two bunches and tie at the top to hold together.

DIY Wedding Wednesday: Paper Flower Decor

diy paper flower decor

Who wouldn’t want a beautiful backdrop adorned with an abundance of flowers framing their head table on their wedding day? Um, I know I would! Unfortunately the average wedding budget just can’t accommodate such extravagant setups. That is unless you’re willing to roll up your sleeves and get crafty! If you’re game than you’ll want to bookmark this post because we’ve got a much more cost effective way to get the look without compromising an ounce of pretty. The secret? Trade in real blooms for everlasting paper versions. Take a few oversized paper peonies, blend with some gorgeously detailed paper dahlias and dainty paper apple blooms, and voila, you’ve got yourself a beautiful backdrop on a budget. Here’s the step by step on how to create these lovelies for your event.

The Supplies

diy paper flower - supplies

  • paper peony, paper dahlia and paper apple blossom. The total number of flowers will depend on how small or large you’d like your backdrop to be. Ours took two peonies, three dahlias and three apple blossoms. For a more full backdrop, increase your count and display the blooms closer together.
  • skewer and rounded pencil for curling petals
  • glue gun

Paper Flower #1: The Apple Blossom

diy paper flowers - apple blossom

The Step by Step

paper apple blossom how to - 1

Step 1: take one of the flower’s layers, any one will do as you’ll repeat this step for them all, and begin by creating your petal details. Crease each petal in half, about 3/4 of the way down, toward the center point.

Step 2: once all petals have been creased, with creases facing up, collapse the flower’s center point such that it creates a dip and your flower is no longer flat.

Step 3: bring the petal with the jetting out flap together with the petal beside it and glue them together such that the flap is now covered.

Repeat Steps 1-3 for All of the Flower’s Layers.

Step 4: begin gluing together your layers from largest to smallest. Alternate the positioning of each layer, rotating as you go, such that they do not overlap and each layer remains visible.

Paper Flower #2: The Dahlia

diy paper flowers - dahlia

The Step by Step

paper dahlia how to - 1

Step 1 (image 1 & 2): begin by creating your petal details. For the prettiest bloom, tightest in the middle, we recommend using a thin skewer to curl the petals on the first two smallest layers. Curl in the sides of each petal, working towards the middle.

Step 2 (image 3 & 4): for the balance of the layers we recommend using a pencil for curling, again curling in the sides of each petal, working towards the middle.

Complete All Layers Before Moving onto the Next Step.

Step 3: for each curled layer, overlap the petals onto one another.

Step 4: in the palm of your hand or using your fingers, twist the overlapped petals such that a tight cone shape is created. Repeat step on all layers and line them up from smallest to largest.

paper dahlia how to - 3

Step 5: begin building your dahlia by starting with your largest layer. Unravel the cone and flatten out the layer, leaving just the sides of the petals curled. Continue onto the next layer and begin gluing your layers together. As you work your way up from layer to layer flatten each one out less, leaving the first two (the smallest two) in tact.  As you glue alternate the positioning of each layer, rotating as you go, such that they do not overlap and each layer remains visible.

Paper Flower #3: The Peony

The Step by Step

Step 1: select your largest or smallest layer and begin creating your petal details using a pencil to curl the edges. Curl each individual petal on the sides, inward. Repeat this step for all the flower’s layers, curling your top,smallest layers more than the larger bottom ones.

Step 2: glue your layers together from the bottom up, largest layer to smallest. Alternate the positioning of each layer, rotating as you go, such that they do not overlap and each layer remains visible.

DIY Wedding Wednesday: Signature Drink Station How-To

signature drink station how to

It’s the holiday season, which just so happens to double as the best time of year to work through some trial runs for your wedding day details. From perfecting place settings, to trying out centerpiece concepts, now’s the time to test and put your ideas to good use. In the spirit of strategic celebrations, today we’re sharing a how-to for a guest treat sure to be a hit at any holiday party or wedding, the Signature Drink Station. Whether you make it a mocktail or a cocktail, sweet refreshments perfectly presented will no doubt be enjoyed by all. Here are all the elements you need to pull off your mini bar.

 The Supplies

signature drink station supplies

The How-To

drink dispenser cling

Step 1: confirm with your venue that they’ll accommodate a specialty drink request (most will) and ensure that a bartender can be dedicated to servicing your drink station. If you are going with a non-alcoholic beverage you can skip the latter and treat your station as a self-serve option.

Step 2: come up with your signature drink recipe. Go with something that acts as an homage to the two of you, your favorite drink recipe for example, and if possible, have it color coordinate with your overall event color scheme. For our main recipe we went with a simple and delicious mix of cherry vodka and cranberry juice.

Step 3: come up with a name for your signature drink and have customized signage created to display it. We went with an Expressions Cling which fit perfectly onto the dispenser.

Step 4: flash forward to the day of and get set up! The first and main component is of course your drink, which should be featured in your dispenser. You can keep this as a non-alcoholic mix, so that even little ones can enjoy, and have your bartender mix in the alcohol to order. If you’re sure that everyone will enjoy a pre-mixed cocktail, then have all your ingredients added to the dispenser. Finish with ice to keep the mix cool.

paper straws mini martini

Step 5: have a few pre-poured drinks setup as part of the overall presentation. Setup should occur just before the start of your cocktail reception, to ensure drinks are served chilled. Poured drinks should include all the trims, i.e. sugared rims and color coordinated paper straws. Rest should be poured and served to order.

Step 6: enjoy!

Wedding Planning Essentials: 10 Tips for Successful Wedding Budget Management

wedding budget management tips

I don’t think I’d be the odd woman out if I said that wedding budget management is not fun. In fact, it’s a major pain. But it’s also an absolute necessity, a top priority in the wedding planning process. As difficult as it is to muddle through the business of managing your wedding spend, it would be downright impossible without a guiding framework. And we’re not talking about anything fancy. Just an outline of the total amount you’re able and willing to dish out, and how you want to allocate those dollars. So in the spirit of a fresh week and getting things off on the right foot, we’re sharing our list of top tips for successful wedding budget management.

Tip #1. First Things First

This may seem obvious but it’s so critical that it’s worth the mention, and the top spot. Setting your wedding budget should be the first thing you do when you set out on the wedding planning journey. Before you book anything, before any of the planning stress sets in, before you even set a date, your first task should be to sit down and map out your maximum total spend.

Tip #2. Where to Start

wedding reception venue

You may be in complete agreement that a budget is essential, but theory isn’t worth much unless put to practice. And here’s where most couples get stuck. They want a controllable budget. They just aren’t sure how to set one. The short answer is that there is no magic formula applicable across the board. Every couple’s budget is bound to look different. There is however a pretty solid rule of thumb you can go by: take your projected venue / reception spend, double it, and the result is an estimate for total average spend.

Tip #3. Be Realistic

dove release

When setting your budget, and throughout the entire planning process, remember that everything comes with a price tag and unless you have an infinite budget, you can’t have it all. You may find it helpful to list out your ‘must haves’, the event details that matter most to you, and your ‘nice to haves’, the extras that you can do without if necessary. For example, a dove release is lovely but not an essential element of a meaningful ceremony. Leave the booking of the extras to the tail end of your planning/spend, and be prepared to make compromises if necessary.

Tip #4. Team Work

Tips 1 to 3 make for a solid wedding budget foundation but unless worked through by both bride and groom, cracks are inevitable. Make sure you’re both comfortable with the total spend set out, and that your list of ‘must haves’ is a shared one. If not, you may find yourself in a tough situation later on down the wedding planning road, at a time where changes aren’t easily made.

Tip #5. Less is More

The number one, fail-safe way to stretch your total spend is to reduce your guest count. It’s simple math. The same total spend will do a lot more for a group of 50 versus for an event hosting 150. And although it may seem like common sense, the challenge arises when tradition, culture and overall community are taken into consideration. So although it’s an easy  concept to understand, it’s a lot harder to put into practice, but an important consideration for budget management nonetheless.

Tip #6. Bring on a Pro

Potentially the most challenging aspect of wedding budget management is the time it takes to get it right. The easiest way to ensure you get it right from the get go, and that you stay on track, is to enlist the help of a professional wedding planner. An experienced planner can handle the process on your behalf, based on the parameters you set together.

Tip #7. Cut Backs

 

Next to your reception venue budget (including food and beverage), floral expenses are likely to be next in line for highest potential spend. Depending on your overall budget and your ‘must haves’, you may find you have to make major cut backs to meet your bottom line. One way to make the cut without impacting on overall ambiance is to replace floral arrangements with a flood of pretty candlelight.

Tip #8. The Time Factor

To aid in spend management, don’t be afraid to ask your wedding vendors for  payment plans. Most would be more than willing to accommodate you with a well spaced out schedule that helps to avoid an influx of major spend all at once. But be prepared to make all final payments approximately two weeks prior to your wedding day.

Tip #9. DIY it

What’s the easiest way to control the cost of a given aspect of your event? Do it yourself. Granted, not all aspects of a wedding can be DIY’d, but those that can are guaranteed to bring down spend. That said, make sure to leave yourself enough time to manage whatever parts you’re taking on, and never do it alone. Now’s the time to turn to a wedding planner, your bridesmaids, and close family members.

Tip #10. Check In

When it comes to a budget, there’s no such thing as too much checking in. The budget management process is a constant one, which should be updated with every single spend as it happens, so it doesn’t get missed. And always remember that nothing, other than your bottom line, is set in stone. So shuffle around on an as needed basis.

Speaking of DIY’ing it
