We decided on a dessert bar and we obviously used my mismatched dessert china to serve it! We had an assortment of cookies, assortment of cheesecake bites, brownie bites (made with love from my aunt Sharon), and cream puffs. We were going to have lemon tarts as well-but we unfortunately left those in the fridge at home. A little oopsie.
The timing couldn't have been better! My parents had an old outhouse attached to their barn (made out of barn wood) which they decided needed to be removed. Not sure if it was for the good of the wedding, or if there was another reason for its removal, but nonetheless, I would have my barn wood.
The bad: someone had to remove it. The good: I got legit barn wood for my signs.
I never knew Damon had it in him-but his sign making ability was astonishing!
I did the finishing touches to the table numbers and vases. I added the stickers from Michaels and added the pearls. The only thing left to do was to add the candles. I also pinned the lace around the mouth of each of the mason jars.
I was inspired by Pinterest with a similar bathroom sign idea, but wasn't sure how I would execute it. I gave two pictures to Damon's dad and gave him little direction. Viola-Damon's dad came through! I added some scrabble letters and the bathroom signs couldn't have been more perfect.
I have managed to collect a TON of hankies, but for the life of me could not figure out the way to best display them. We tried a wooden crate, a basket, a tray-you name it. They all looked stupid and really didn't display all the beautiful patterns and detailed fabric and embroidery. After some discussion and another 12:30 am epiphony I had the idea of putting them on one of our shutters. It turned out awesome. We simply put tacks through a strand of lace and hung the hankies by itty bitty clothes pins.
*MY hankie came in handy-seeing that I couldn't keep it together walking down the aisle. :)
You'll have to wait for the wedding photos to see all of it come together.
