Wild Wedding

Last Friday, I promised that I would share how to get a really dirty tub clean.  You know, the kind that hasn’t been cleaned in years and you don’t know who has been in it.  The kind where you demo the shower door and there is all sorts of treasures underneath.  Well, I had planned on posting that “how to” today.  I usually plan my posts out for the week each weekend.  There is one little problem.  I  misplaced my phone.  My phone has the pictures.  So plan B was another post on my guest bathroom. I sat down ready to post and then I realized I left the camera in the car the Hubs has today.  We went to a wedding this weekend and I took the camera.  My job has me working really late tonight so that post would get out today if I waited until I got home….so plan c.  Thanks for being flexible.  Everyday in the summer, at work, I am surrounded by 400 kids age 7-13 and about 130 college-aged staff.  I am sorry I might be a little sporadic.  While there is no way around being a little sporadic for three months know that  my goal is to be consistent.  I don’t want to neglect my faithful readers by not posting or giving poor content.  So please bear with me, I am so sorry.

So Plan C’s post is inspired by my recent trip to Arkansas for a wedding.  I realized I had not finished a few posts about the wedding that I decorated a few months ago.  It was a lot of work, a lot of fun, and it proves you can do a lot with a little money and a lot of help.  Todays topic:  The flowers.

A Vintage Wedding

Yesterday, I couldn’t keep my eyes open.  I was exhausted from wedding week.  Last week was filled with 6am-3pm work hours so I could get off work and focus on wedding.  I sewed, hot-glued, thrift store shopped and rummaged through friends/family of the brides stuff.  Saturday I showed up at the venue at 7am and didn’t leave until 11:30pm after it was all cleaned up.  Thank goodness it was a golf club and had locker rooms for me to get ready.  Today I want to show you the goal and outcome and in the weeks to come (with some house rehab posts mixed in between)  I will show you how I did it all.

The Theme:  Vintage Wedding on a serious budget

Needs to accomplish:

  • furniture  ( all types of vintage furniture)
  • old trinkets, vintage books
  • tables
  • tablecloths
  • Flowers
  • Mason Jars
  • Serving platters for sweets table and cupcake table
  • Table Runners
  • Dance Floor on a budget
  • Candles
  • Mood lighting
  • old doors
  • Photo booth (DIY)

Our little community is great.  I borrowed tables from a local camp,her brother  built stuff,  sewed stuff,  borrowed mason jars from the brides friend (who just got married), her aunt volunteered to pick wild flowers, I used left over flowers the florist had from the bouquets and corsage, we collected and borrowed old doors, I hot glued,  spray painted, and moved a ton of furniture…all in a matter of three days.  This is how it all turned out…

The reception was indoors and outdoors.  Here is the outside part:
