I know this is a home blog, but please bear with me for the next 2 months as my house has been overrun by DIY wedding projects! I promise I will be making lots of time for house projects as soon as our snow melts... I have a garage full of furniture to be redone and accessories to be spray painted once it's warmer.
Anyway...... back to the wedding. I decided to use my silhouette to make toasting flutes for the bridal party.
I just couldn't see spending a ton of money on engraved glasses that say "bridesmaid" when they'll probably forget to keep them anyway! So I bought these plain glasses from Target. 8 for the bridal party and 2 larger ones for me and future mr. hubby.
I set it up on the silhouette using one of my fonts from here and one of the free frames that silhouette provides you with. It took about an entire 2.2 seconds to finish.... can I just say I love this machine?
Here's what I came out with. I did not use the transfer paper because I'm not a great direction-follower and tend to skip steps. But it worked just fine!
Here are the bride & groom glasses. Our colors are black and hot pink, so I think this will look great at the head table!
Here are the groomsmen. I decided to do their initial instead of "groomsman" or "bridesmaid" because who really wants a glass that says bridesmaid? I mean really, when are you ever going to use that again?
Here they are with the napkins. The rest of the tables are going to have hot pink napkins in their glasses, so I'm just using paper napkins for these. I don't think it makes much of a difference. These are the luncheon sized napkins for 2.50 at Walmart.
So one more thing checked off my wedding to do list. My goodness ladies, being a DIY'er is stressful when it comes to wedding planning!
Thanks for stopping... I'll be partying here this weekend:
