Reels and reels of ribbons!

I've recently got quite into "all things ribbony"! 

I have a huge box full of different colours shapes and sizes that I really must use up and so have been looking at different wedding ideas with ribbons. 

I've recently made a ribbon wall and ribbon bouquet with streamers. 
I've used scraps of ribbons to recycle glass jars into vases and lanterns - an easy project which has an amazing impact when lots of them are used together.
Here's some pic's of ways I've used ribbons at weddings...
and also some pics that I've pinched from Pinterest on projects to do...


Decorate glass jars with remnants of lace and ribbon for 
a pretty vintage effect



Ribbon walls are becoming more and more popular in the UK -
excellent for outside or festival themed weddings as well as a good cover up for
unsightly wallpaper etc. or just to add a fun backdrop to a photo wall! 
Be warned though - to make a successful one you will need about 200 meters of ribbon!!

Just a simple contrasting ribbon on a satin chair sash makes a 
clean and simple statement



Thread a garland with ribbon or lace as an alternative to string or cord. 


I love this use of ribbons, to add accent colour to a satin table runner.

Steam trains, beer and an allotment wedding!!!





Jen and Wayne, who married today have a love of Steam trains, beer and their allotment! 
All feature in their lives and we wanted to use these items to personalise their wedding. 



Real Ale bottles were sprayed gold and filled with gypsophelia (which I think is like the froth on beer!) and also rosemary from their allotment - the room smelt fabulous. 




Jen also had rosemary from their allotment in her bouquet of deep burgundy with some brights to "lift" it and some gold "frothy" pearl spray. 

Wayne had a beautiful burgundy cala lily, gold "froth" to match the beer bottles and a sprig of rosemary. 


The table plan was made using vintage suitcases and a wonderful 1930's Hornby Station, all the table names were vintage train stations and on the top table a Hornby steam locomotive pulled two trailers of flowers. Hope you enjoy the pictures... 

 Place names were luggage labels that invited the guests to get them clipped at the bar too receive a free drink.


Table runners were burgundy satin and each chair had an organza double sash of burgundy and gold.



Many thanks to Lisa Millership for all her help today and to 
Ruth from Precision Wedding planners who kindly lent the wonderful Hornby items xx

Lacy Doggy Wedding Bandannas???

Made Mr Harry Grimwood a new bandanna today... 
just wondering now if there's a gap in the market for lacy doggy wedding bandannas 
or maybe one with a bow tie on???!




Recycle your wedding dec's!


Vintage is still pretty big on the wedding scene at the moment, and I must admit it is one of my favourites. 

The vintage look can be achieved so cost effectively and I just wanted to share with you some ideas...


So for all you DIY brides out there here is how I recycled some old tin cans and glass jars into vintage looking candle votive s and vases at a next to nothing cost.



These look absolutely amazing going along the full length of a wedding table - we are doing a wedding that is having these on their top table later this year, so please pop back and see the pics.
Get your family and friends to collect them all for you and maybe even share a bottle or two of wine with friends one evening and encourage them to help make something towards your wedding.

You will need: 
tin cans, glass jars, spray gun, vinegar, spray paint, glue, lace, broken jewellery


Fill the spray gun or water pistol with vinegar and spray the surface of your jar/tin with a fine mist. Now spray paint on top of it straight away. The vinegar resists the paint which gives a crackled, speckled look to the glass. 


When a candle is placed inside - it looks great - trust me!







I then cut out some copies of vintage labels and stuck one on each side of the tin/jar

Added a scrap of lace and broken jewellery to pretty it up 
et voila! 


If you want these for your wedding, but don't have time/the inclination to make them yourself - we hire them from just £1 each  at:
Pop by our page and take a look at more cost effective ways and fun ideas  to decorate your wedding
