We had the pleasure of helping decorate a wedding of our dear friends, Karina and JR in Homestead, Florida. Their wedding was a fun DIY wedding with paper flowers and pinwheels in teals and oranges.
The bride made paper flower bouquets for the bridesmaids and herself..
We made big paper flowers to decorate the wedding ceremony and reception….
We created a bright and fun “Love is Sweet” Candy Bar. We mixed our vintage candy dishes and jars, wood crates, cake dishes and rustic metal shelving unit with the bright colors to create a fun and fabulous candy bar. Our pictures don’t do it justice, can’t wait to see the photographer’s photos.
First thing we made was the DumDum Lollipop tree. We glued a round styrofoam ball to the top of a wide top teal candlestick. Then arranged a big bag of DumDums into the styrofoam ball. It turned out so bright and pretty.
For the backdrop we made pinwheels and Mod Podge signs. We found the instructions for both crafts on Pinterest.
The pinwheels were made from scrapbook paper in bright colors.
Our daughter made Mod Podge signs to say “Love is Sweet”. She used backgrounds to create the letters that had significance for the bride and groom: Polka dots in their wedding colors, bible verses and music from a song the bride loves to sing, appropriately “Mama, I’m a big girl now”.
We gathered an assortment of candy in bright colors, especially teal and orange.
Purchased some lollipops and teal and orange candy (gummies, rock candy, gum balls and chocolates) from a candy supplier…
Candy necklaces were a big hit!
The rest of the candy was from Sam’s club and I have to tell you that candy was gobbled up in minutes,
faster than the pretty colored candy… Skittles, Hershey’s, Almond Joys, Reeces, Kit Kats and Jelly Beans…
It was bright and pretty and a fun and yummy favor for guests. A great way for the bride and groom to say thank you to their guests.
Congratulations to Karina and JR!!!!!!!!!!!!
