There’s no doubt that our wedding is going to be a kid-friendly event. With eight little ones ranging from the ages of 3 to 10 in the wedding party, how can’t it be?
Mr Yorkie’s three nieces and my cousins’ combined three daughters and two sons will form the petite parade that will lead us down the aisle, setting a light-hearted and joyous tone for our beach-side ceremony.
In hopes of keeping these special little guests happy (and out of trouble) during the reception, I’ve been collecting ideas for fun activities to provide at their table. One of the things that I’m planning to do is to make custom coloring books out of digital photos of Mr Yorkie and me with our family and friends. I’m sure that the kids will get a kick out of seeing themselves in a coloring book. Heck, I’m excited about it, and I’m almost 31! On a recent trip to Target, a single pink enameled pail on a shelf in the $1 Spot caught my eye. Immediately, I knew that this lonely little bucket was going to serve a purpose in my wedding… housing colored pencils, of course! Because the shade of pink doesn’t quite match the fuchsia color that has become prominent in our details, I came up with the idea of helping it fit in by decorating the pail with what has become our “official logo”.
With a few supplies that I already had on hand, I was able to complete this simple DIY project in under 15 minutes! All it took was a print out of our digital silhouettes scaled to size, a small piece of black adhesive-backed vinyl (I used ProvoCraft’s Cuttables for the Cricut), a craft knife with a new blade, and some tape. Here’s how it all came together…
All it needs now is a fun grosgrain ribbon to dress it up a little more. Polka dots, perhaps?
