What we ladies really notice . . .

. . . are the details, right?  No matter what the event is.  Big party or small gathering.  Whether we are invited to a fancy gala or a barn party or just over to the neighbor's house for potluck, what we look at first are the details.  Our eyes just naturally seek out to see what is new, what is different and, truth be told, what ideas we can recreate in our own homes.  This is true if you are like me.  And I know you are all like me.

If it is details you desire, then you came to the right place today.  

Behold!  ~ the wedding details ~.
(at least some of them)

Half of the tables had centerpieces that included dried hydrangeas in my white McCoy vases.

On chalkboard trays with 'love' quotes.

On burlap placemats.  
(BTW, do you know how hard it is to get a perfect rectangle shape out of burlap?  Impossible!)
(AND BTW again, do you spot the fancy, schmancy jello mold I posted about earlier?)

The other half of the tables were decorated with vintage vignettes.

Everything used was from 'stuff' we already had.  
Needless to say, I had many empty shelves, table tops and spaces in my home!

There was a 'thank you' on each table so the guests knew how much we appreciated that they came.  

(The issue of RSVPs will be discussed in a later post.  After I cool down a little.)

There was either sheet music, ledger paper or dictionary pages as foundations for the centerpieces.

And each vignette sat on a vintage doily.

We made muslin wreaths . . .

and oodles of different (you'll see other kinds later) paper flowers . . .

and blinged out bottles.

In the back of the stage were huge frames, with chalkboard inserts, that held huge fluffy wreaths.

And of course we had to add a little bling to each one!

Did you get your fill of details yet?  No?  Well, stay tuned.

There are just a few (dozen) left to show you!  lol

And I'm planning a surprise!
