Not only is it six months till my soldier comes home, it’s about six months till we have our church wedding! I have been a bad bride – because I haven’t spent a lot of time planning. I’ve been pinning on pinterest…not exactly productive though….
This past weekend, I’ve decided that I will now buckle down and start getting all the details together. I have the church and the venue. I also have the photography part reserved. I have been executing on the “beer bottle wrapped with lace” idea for the centerpieces in the last couple of weeks. A couple weeks ago, I bought a couple of yards of lace with a friend. I’ve also bought a couple of six packs…haha.
Here is what I pinned initially on pinterest.
It doesn’t have the lace wrap, but that’s the general idea of the centerpiece. Here are pictures of my creations so far!
I just measured the circumference of the bottles and cut the lace accordingly. I used tacky glue to hold it in place and it worked perfectly! I just needed a couple dabs at the ends. it dries clear and has a good secure hold!
I was thinking of having four bottles on each table, which means I need about 50 empty bottles. Right now, I’ve created 8…so it seems like I’m on track! I will have round tables and I wanted to put the bottles in a small crate with moss inside. I’m going to make the crates and then buy the moss from a wholesaler (it would only be about 20 bucks or so!).
Imagine the beer bottles inside the crate with just a handful of moss placed in between the bottles. I’m pretty excited to get all of this done!
