DIY Love Notes Piñata

A piñata is pretty straight forward to make, but it’s such a fun idea to use in weddings! Vanessa from Alchemy Fine Events tells us how to recreate this darling wedding piñata with “love notes”:

Blow up balloon (oversized balloons work best), soak newspaper strips in water and glue, then cover the balloon in them. After the balloon dries, cover it in the cut music sheets. Pop the balloon and cut a small section to fill up with the love ‘notes’. Reattach the cut piece and cover it with the music sheet strips.

From Cortnie:

The menu sang it’s own love song with items labeled… To Drink: Love Potion #9 “I didn’t know if it was day or night, I started kissing everything in sight” – The Clovers; To Eat: Cheeseburger in Paradise “Heaven on earth with an actual onion slice” – Jimmy Buffet; For Dessert: Cherry Pie “Tastes so good make a grown man cry, sweet cherry pie” – Warrant

A rustic teak trough on the side of the table was propped on a moss covered frame and served as the wine bucket. A decanter was perched on a sea of beach rocks and filled with strawberry wine with a hand written love ‘note’ tied with twine around the neck that read “My first taste of love oh bittersweet, green on the vine, like strawberry wine” – Deana Carter

And since Valentine’s Day is coming up this Sunday, how about some gift ideas?

Gift for Him: make a piñata out of old music sheets! Really play up the love ‘notes’ theme by having him channel his inner child and hit the piñata until actual love notes flutter to the ground! Love was literally floating in the air with this gift. Handwritten notes like “will you be my valentine?”, favorite love song lyrics and inside jokes will make this the most personal and thoughtful gift you could give, while allowing your sweetheart to channel his inner child. Ren and Kiptyn could not contain their giggles as he wore a pink velvet blindfold while blindly swinging.

Gift for her: Her heart was fluttering as gave her a key box with a note that said ‘you’ve got the key to my heart – pull here’. At the end of the pink velvet ribbon she found her gift, a gorgeous vintage bracelet. (see Part I here)

Wild Seaside Garden

This unbelievable “Love Notes” photo shoot designed by the hugely talented ladies from Canvas and Canopy and Alchemy Fine Events was dedicated to Valentine’s Day, but it can well be envisioned as a wedding. Brace yourself, because you’re in for a day of swooning over these images!

How much do you love the bride’s dress? I had the pleasure of meeting the designer behind that chic blush wedding dress, Alisa Benay. I have to tell you that I got all giddy wanting to try it on, it looks even more delicious in person.

Cortnie, of Lollipop Events & Designs shares how the inspiration came to life:

The Beatles said it best with “All you need is love, love, love is all you need.” Whether you are dating, engaged, or getting married, it is all about sending the right message with good old-fashioned love notes. Hit even higher notes by playing on love notes by infusing musical lyrics into your sweet Valentine’s weekend. We created a play on Love ‘notes’ by handwriting actual song lyrics throughout the day.

The Setting: For this Valentines Day Soiree we created a romantically wild seaside garden with overgrown roots, driftwood and birch wood in a forest of twisted trees overlooking the pacific blue. This was truly a sweetheart table for two. The white washed wood and birch leg table was covered in anemones, spray roses and dusty miller leaves. Simple candles, sticks, shells and skeleton keys were placed in the center for a dreamy, romantic effect.

A Book of Love was also propped on the sweets table, with another love ‘note’. “I love it when you read to me and you, you can read me anything. I love it when you sing to me And you, You can sing me anything The book of love is long and boring And written very long ago It’s full of flowers and heart-shaped boxes And things we’re all too young to know But I love it when you give me things And you, You ought to give me wedding rings And I, I love it when you give me things And you, You ought to give me wedding rings” – Peter Gabriel, Book Of Love

Cake table – Another love ‘note’ made an appearance with “How sweet it is to be loved by you” – James Taylor. The table was adorned with a peach cake accented with textured flowers and an antique silver pitcher filled with a wild gathering of peach and rose toned blooms. Also making an appearance were sweet little bumps on a log made of gourmet chocolate truffles.
