Kevin Gets Married PLUS Table Decor in a Jiffy

Pin It!
Remember my darling nephew Kevin?
I've known & loved him all his life,
& this weekend I had to give him to another girl . . .
 Luckily, I'm crazy about her too -
so it wasn't quite as hard as I thought it would be! 

Isn't she lovely?

AND they're perfect for each other.
The wedding was so beautiful.
Check out these *amazing bridesmaid's shoes* . . .
And my favorite bridesmaid, my beautiful niece . . .
The wedding took place far from where I live.
I wanted to help with some simple table decor
at the wedding dinner, 
BUT since we traveled by air--
it was tricky.

Here's what we did . . .
Walmart really saved me on this one!
{Everything is from Wallyworld unless otherwise mentioned.}
I knew whatever we had in stock at my local store
would also be available where the wedding took place,
so I shopped here at home--
then had a couple of hours to shop
& pull off: four simple centerpieces,
a "table runner" & candy favor bags for 30.

Here's my "team" that helped me . . . 
Hunny, me, Jeffrey, & Christian

I knew the restaurant was using 
burgundy cloth napkins 
& I really liked the idea of blue with the red.
The "table runner" is a glitter wrapping paper,
cut down the center.
This was my favorite element. 
It was so beautiful & sparkly in in the evening light. 
And some thought it was fabric.
These little glass vases were only about $4 each.
They held up so well despite being dropped
in the parking lot & rolling around in the back
of my nephews truck!

{Remember to keep your centerpieces short
for conversations across the table.}
The little blue birds are clip-on ornaments 
from the Christmas section. {Only $1 each.}

Tip: it's more simple - & it looks elegant too -
if you just keep all the flowers the same.
{Especially if you're pressed for time.}
 At home,
I found the picture frames, above, at the thrift store -
spray painted them,
& made the signs on my word processor. 

They have little bird ornaments 
hanging from them also.
 Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Lunt.
May you live "HAPPILY AFTER AFTER".
Welcome to the family Trisha!

  5. My dear Sis, thank you so much for creating the absolute perfect table decor for our kid's rehearsal dinner. Everyone commented on how beautiful it was, and of course, I couldn't help but brag about my sis taking it off my plate. Literally, no pun intended! ;) Once again, I must say, "I don't know what I would do or be without YOU in my life." Kevs & Trish truly are a perfect couple, and we are a blessed family!
