My sweet niece, Lauren, is getting married this weekend. It is wonderful to see the beautiful, kind, talented woman she has become. But I think I will always think of her as Lolo.....that precious freckle faced red headed baby with a raspy smoker's voice. What a doll! I am thrilled for her, and love to see her so in love and happy. I consider it an honor to be able to help with her wedding in any way I can.
I made these simple monograms to cover the ribbon seams on these beautiful square glass vases. Imagine them filled with split peas and gorgeous blue hydrangeas. I think these centerpieces will be perfect.....simple, yet elegant!
I made these rosettes for her bridesmaids. The wedding colors are chartruese green and navy blue.....I adore this combination! In real life the green on these rosettes is much brighter. I think they will add a great pop of color on the girls' navy blue dresses. My sisters and I got together a couple weeks ago and made 80 of these to pin onto the chair sashes. We pulled a late nighter, but we finally got them all done. Oh, and did I mention that the ones we made for the chairs were twice this size?
Tonight was her bridal shower and I really wnted to make something special for her. Since her wedding colors are also the colors she wants to decorate with, I decided to incorporate navy and green into my gift. Again, the lighting makes this green look dull, but it is so pretty in real life.
I used a scrap of canvas drop cloth to tie up the sign. That is my newest use for all the fabric remnants I have lying around. I love the texture and this natural color goes with absolutely everything. It's a nice alternative to your standard bow.
I also made her a personalized Christmas ornament for their first Christmas together. I used a leftover monogram label on the front of the box and tied it up with green toile ribbon.
