Pom-Pom Stamped Bunny Tags : a Fun Last Minute Easter DIY

Now, I know this is a wedding blog - but I had so much fun working on this DIY project with my daughter this week that I wanted to share with you before the day ends. This idea can of course easily be swamped out with other imagery for any type of event - maybe an engagement ring with a rhinestone added for the diamond?

I decided to go the framed route for my bunny {for our Easter place settings} - but these can easily be made into tented place cards, gift tags, cards - the ideas are endless. Simply cut out the bunny template your selected and you're left with an empty bunny - this becomes your stencil. Select the patterned paper of your choice and trim it to fit in your frame or whichever size tag you wish to make. For my frames, I cut off the outer plastic layer so the bunny could have a puffy cottontail. Simply stamp away on top of the cut-out bunny, covering the entire area in white. Slowly lift off the stencil {the darker the paper, the better the bunny will look}. Then I added in a pink nose, a little pink in the one ear and a black eye. I added a xyron glue dot where the tail would be and attached a pom-pom to it. The hold is super strong and there's no waiting for glue to dry with these dots. I placed the finished bunny in my frame and it's now the perfect finishing touch to our Easter Sunday dinner table at my parents house. I'm now off to make more . . . hoping everyone has a wonderful weekend. See you back here on Monday.

Memorial Accessories - Remembering Our Loved Ones

Memorial accessories are a thoughtful way to remember loved ones who have passed and cannot be present on your wedding day. According to Daisy Days, the most popular items are floating candles which typically have the following message engraved on them, "In Loving memory this light shines as a symbol of a life and love remembered". Personalized photo frames are a great way to show the faces of who is being remembered. And, bouquet charms are a beautiful way to keep someone special close to you throughout your wedding day.

Veronica Sheaffer Wedding Gowns and Chamomile ... the edible flower

Today I have a few of the latest gowns from the "Little Blue Bow" Collection of wedding gowns for Fall/Winter 2014 from Veronica Sheaffer {all handmade in the USA}. Each of the gowns are priced under $2,500 and include lace, silk, gold and even completely custom options. With this collection you have the option of adding on coordinating tops to further personalize the look. When I saw the gorgeous rustic bouquets of chamomile flowers being held by the model I couldn't help but smile as I wore these little flowers in my hair on my wedding day :) Since these flowers are edible, I thought it would be fun to also share a few recipes that incorporate these flowers into them {seen at the end of this post after the gowns}.

And, now for the yummy chamomile recipes {which would also be perfect wedding treats for your guests}  . . .
