Decorations

I'm working on our receptions decorations right now.  I've bought a bunch of lanterns, which was the one thing I knew from the very beginning that I wanted.  I found a fellow Knottie who had the same colors as me, so I snapped them up!

 These are the smallest sized ones.  There are two other bigger sizes.

Now lit up using these little LED party lights I got at Michaels:

 

An idea that I like that I saw at a flower shop:

 I also love this idea with the poufs and branches with mini poufs.  I'm thinking maybe the branches with mini poufs for the windows, not centerpieces.  I also think we're going to put the poufs in the trees for our ceremony.

My practice poufs! (the aqua one ripped- I guess I need more practice!  :)

 I want to hang some of these on shepherd hooks leading up the aisle.  Maybe two at the back and two at the front.  For those, I like the look of hanging them with ribbon, like this one.


Centerpieces

I've also been working on our centerpieces.  I knew that it wasn't in the budget to have flowers in our centerpieces so I've been slowly working from there.  I got some vases from a friend of mine and also got some more at the Dollar Store.  We also picked up some vellum and voila!  Centerpiece!

These are just the vases and I think we're going to use the two colors above, possibly with the ribbons, not sure yet though.  Also not sure if we are going to use the polka dot fabric or vellum for tea lights.

 

Table Mock ups:

These are just mock ups, I'm still not 100% sure on if I'm going to add vellum to the vases on the green fabric or to the votives on the pink fabric.  But it's the general idea of what I want.

  Some of the tables will have this.  The others will have this:

Favors

 We weren't even sure we wanted favors (it was a money issue) but then we saw Easter M&M's and realized that they had all three of our wedding colors- green, pink, and aqua!!  

One bag fills up two bowls with our colors and one leftover with Vikings colors!  :)  I also saw that the kisses were the same colors!  Score!  I waited until the day after Easter and then hit the 50% off sales.  I present to you, our favors (one bowl of M&M's and one bowl of kisses at each table)..
