One of the problems with having all my bridesmaids out of town is that I have no one to guilt into helping with the enormous amount of projects I have taken on.
Fortunately for me, I have some of the best friends ever here in town. They’ve been more than helpful.
Recently, I held the first of what I hope will be several successful Wedding Crafting Parties. My girlfriends here came over and helped me finish a few projects, and start a few new ones.
Remember this fabric?
I was feeling very bored with my centerpieces (I know I haven’t shown them to y’all yet, I will, promise) and decided I needed something to spice up our tables, to add some color. I started looking at table runners and squares online and decided I was not going to shell out that kind of money. So, I decided I would make the darn things myself. I cut the paisley fabric into 18″x18″ squares. I cut the celadon satin in 6.5″ strips.
Here’s my good friend BebeMoochi designing the first table square.
And here’s what we ended up with:
I’ll admit that the paisley and the satin don’t actually “match”, but they coordinate nicely, and frankly, my dears, I don’t care.
Here’s a close up. You can really see that the colors don’t quite match. You can also see the touch of blue there in the paisley. I wish I’d have thought of that color earlier on, as it would have made a lovely addition to our already extensive color palette.
