Wedding Wishes!

Good Morning!  I hope your Monday is going well and that you had a wonderful weekend.  Last week I said I would share the things I made for my niece's wedding with you.  First I just want to share a beautiful picture of my niece, her new husband (can not believe it has been over a week already) and their three gorgeous children.  I wish them a blessed life together as they begin this journey.

I made table numbers, place cards and favours for her. The colours that she chose were orange and pink.  All card stock used is orange and bright pink from Recollections and the patterned paper is an orange and pink swirl that I found at Michaels.  And all other supplies were bought at Michaels as well ~ fall leaf and candy corn embellishments, ribbon and cello bags.  Let me warn you, there are LOTS of pictures to follow in this post so it will be a long one.

First, here is everything I made all together before I packed it to send:

It was a reasonably small wedding so here are the four table numbers:

The circles/scalloped circles are from Accent Essentials Cricut cartridge cut at 3 and 3 1/2".  Numbers are from Lyrical Letters cut at 3 1/2".

The place cards:

These were 4" squares folded in half with the orange/pink swirl at 1 3/4" x 3 3/4".  The names were computer generated on the bright pink card stock.  A pop dotted Fall leaf gives it a little pizzazz.

There were going to be a few children there so they had their own special favours:

The scalloped circle was again from Accent Essentials cut at 2 1/2".  The sentiment which reads "Thank you from Steve & Alisha Oct. 8, 2011" were computer generated and punched out with a 2" circle punch.  Candy corn bling and the ribbon which says "Happily Ever After" complete the look.  Although you can not see it in the picture the actual lollipop is shaped and coloured like a piece of candy corn as well.

And onto the other favours:

The popcorn box was cut from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More at 3 1/2" in bright pink.  The same circles were used for the front of these as on the children's favours.  Boxes were filled with white basket fill and then candy corn, placed in a small bag and tied with the same ribbon.

This is how they looked at the restuarant on the table along with another favour my niece had added:

It was a fabulous day and I enjoyed making these for them so much.  If you like what you see here and you or anyone you know are interested in handmade invitations, favours, etc for your celebration of any kind please e-mail me or get in touch with me through my Facebook page. 

Thanks for dropping in today and hanging in there until the end of this long post.  Have a great day!!!
