inspiration to reality: ceremony aisle

I held onto this inspiration photo for a long time in the hopes that I would be able to implement either the lace on the back of the chairs or the crystals hanging from the umbrella.

Well on a lucky thrift store shopping day I scored a HUGE bag of lace for $6.  I used that lace plus some ribbon bought at the dollar tree to dress the back of the ceremony chairs.

As for the fabric flowers strewn down the aisle... honestly I have no idea how that all came about.  I remember I was having a hard time grasping the price tag of real rose petals and I just couldn't see silk petals working with our theme.  So as I discussed in this post I just started sewing up fabric flowers and I couldn't be happier with the results.  

And last but not least the reserved seating signs!  Here they are in all their glory...

Kellie -- I purchased the gray straws from a vendor on Etsy, her shop is called 62 Cards {www.etsy.com/shop/62Cards}. There are many vendors out there for the paper straws, I was under time constraints so I went with her shop. I guess my point is you may be able to find a better deal?

Anonymous -- Not sure what to do with all of those flowers just yet :). I spent a lot of time crafting them, in fact I watched the entire "Nip Tuck" SERIES on Netflix while making them. Who knows maybe there will be a roundy rounds etsy shop next! Thanks for asking though.

Please post a comment if you decide to open an etsy shop for those. If the price is right, I could be interested!
