I have been busy embossing the Reception Cards today....24 and counting....

Inside of the pocketfold. I have 111 completed but I think I might need more, so of course I need more paper. :-)
These are the belly bands. These took me most of the week. I have 120 completed.
This is my first draft of the invitations. Notice my fixed spelling error :-D. I need to finalize the time before I print them out and take them to staples to get cut. Our names were blacked out for privacy.
These are really similar to Heather's Aqua Invites, but I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them on her blog. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? :-)

I started blogging back in April when I got engaged at weddingbycolor.com. I had a lot of fun talking with the other brides on the site, but the formatting and layout of the posts were not really enough for trading DIY instructions with pictures. So now, here I am! Plus this will be better to keep up after we're married.
So here are the instruction and materials you will need to make the table luminaires
1) Glass Cylindars ~ Purchased from flowersandsupplies.com
2) Vellum Paper ~ Michales
3) 1/4 " Lavendar Ribbon ~ Michaels
4) 1/8" Black Ribbon ~ Michaels
5) Super Tacky Tape ~ Michaels
I printed the table numbers using microsoft publisher and my home printer. I used ambiance BT swash (thanks again Heather!)
This is the cylindar plain. I washed them first before anything to get some of the cardboard dust off.
This is a shot of the back of the vase. For a few I needed to cut a small strip of vellum to add to the back of the vase. The red is the tacky tape for the lavendar ribbon
