I’ve had so many different projects going on lately, it’s been hard to keep up with everything! Most notably, J and I are getting married in a little over a month, so a lot of my work lately has been geared towards producing wedding related items. I always like to think about making things myself before I let someone else do it for me (i.e., buying pre-made things!), but I realize that from time to time, it’s a better investment to lay down some money and let someone else who has honed their craft skills do the work.
For example, I know we want to add some color and visual interest to the reception at the wedding. So far I’ve been working on making a slew of fabric flags to brighten things up, but I wanted something to hang from the trees. We had considered paper lanterns, which would be beautiful, but for some reason I hadn’t moved forward with that idea. Then I came across these party poms, and I knew that this was the burst of color I’d been looking for! I can’t wait to see how they look hanging from the trees.
