Wedding Projects

Or, at least some of the things I made for my daughter's wedding.  I tried not to get too carried away with making things.  I wanted to enjoy the journey to the big day, so I limited myself to small projects that were easily done and finished well in advance. Carrie also limited herself to making the guest book.  Yes, she is a fantastic bookbinder!  You can see the process of making the book and the pictures of the finished book if you follow the link above. 

I thought you might like to see some of my handiwork, so without further ado, I'll share some pictures of my contribution to what was a beautiful day!

The bridesmaids' and flower girls' necklaces along with the tags holding the necklaces.


Packaging for the flower girls.

Packaging for the bridesmaids.

The table favors.  A collaborative effort between the father of the bride (the labels) and the mother of the bride (the bows).  By the way, the favors were jars of strawberry jam!  Yum!!

Well, these are some of the little things I made.  I have some tags and the necklace that the bride wore along with the box to keep it in.  But, they're for another time. 


  1. It was all beautiful. I really appreciate all the stuff you did!

  2. Beautiful gifts and favors. I think you were so wise to limit yourself (because it would be so easy to go overboard and become overwhelmed) and that you were determined to live in the moment and enjoy it all. Congrats mama!

  3. WOW you kept it simple? Awesome packaging and Jam as a favor how cool is that!


I love to hear from you! Let me know you've been visiting.
