I've decided that Fridays will be my wedding update day over here on the 'ole blog. Excited? I figured you would.
So, I knew I wanted to do something creative for table numbers. Tim tried to convince me that the table numbers our venue provided were enough, but let's be honest - that's a little too easy, I needed a project. So, I had this great idea to buy these 99 cent frames from Ikea, and 'spell' out the numbers using buttons inside the frames on burlap. See how cute (and reasonable!) the frames are:

Handmade weddings), where I ordered yellow numbers! Easy peasy.
Army of bottles:
They turned out pretty fab, if I do say so myself (and I do)! I'm not sure if we'll fill them with water, or maybe something colored (maybe lemonade?). I hope older guests are not confused and aimlessly wandering looking for their tables. But I'm really happy with how they turned out. Ikea is still a winner in my book. And I promise not to drop Ikea like a hot potato once we can afford better furniture.
