Handmade Oregon Wedding

Rustic Weddings

Sara and Josh’s wedding shot by Anna Jaye Photography is just about the perfect blend of masculine and feminine elements — wooden details mixed with lush pink and orange floral arrangements from Lamb’s Palisades Floral. One of my personal favorite aspects of this wedding is that bride Sara allowed her personality to shine through in her reception dress, opting for a bright coral number to match her maids!

From the bride, Sara: We envisioned a fun laid back event where our family and friends could celebrate with us on our big day!

I really loved coral and wanted bright festive colors to go along with that color! It was too hard to narrow down to two colors so I had many colors including: red, yellow, orange, blue, and kraft brown. Some DIY projects included: poms, table runners, napkin rings, banners, and CRANES! We folded 1000 cranes to honor my Japanese heritage. The tradition states that it is good luck to fold 1000 cranes so Josh and I folded many and it was great how so many loved ones volunteered to help and brought together everyone to contribute a little something to our special day.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Don’t lose perspective. It is easy to be overwhelmed by the hundreds of things on our “to do list” to prepare for the wedding that we forget why we are melting down over something as silly as napkin colors! At the end of the day, we are still marrying the love of our life so just enjoy it!

DIY Polka Dot Bottles

DIY Projects

We have been on a polka dot obsession lately. So much that this project popped up while finishing our preparations for our table for the The Cream Event NYC. Using masking tape and a paper punch I had in my drawer, I gave old bottles a new life. What better way to shake things up than with confetti? You can try this on pretty much anything that’s in need of some polka dot cheer!

If you’re painting the interior of your bottles like I did, start by pouring paint in your clear glass vessels. Shake them to cover the interior and let them dry upside down. Though it would look just as fab with clear glass :)

DIY dotted bottles

While the bottles are drying, start punching holes in the masking tape. You can anchor the end of the tape on the edge of your desk while you work on your polka dot. No need to follow a pattern – just punch holes randomly. Once the bottles are dry from the paint in them, wrap the dotted masking tape and cover the rest of the bottle with solid tape. Spray paint. Let it dry for a few minutes and gently peel the tape away. I was able to reuse the masking tape a few times on other bottles, so as long as you can remove the tape without ripping, you can definitely use the same dotted strip again.
