Back in Business!

Hello! I'm back from my wonderful girls only bachlorette weekend AND I have my camera. :) So need less to say, no more babbling posts about projects past. I'll be sharing some bachlorette goodness later this week once I receive some photos from the other girls but I'll sum it for you with three little words DIRTY GOOD FUN. ;)

So let me jump right in with some wedding projects:

We made 25 hotel goodie boxes. As the theme is sweets we wanted them to look like bakery boxes full of yummy surprises.

The boxes are filled with champagne splits, plastic champagne glasses, almond rocha, cookies, crackers, biscotti, coffee and a whole host of other goodies.

We also wrapped the bridesmaids gifts:

The paper is a metallic pink and very difficult to photograph. I am loving that ribbon though and my tags came out quite cute as well. I love sweet shop colors!

We also glittered 48 votives for a glittery snow like effect:

They should sparkle quite nicely I think. We are winding down on wedding chores. Only programs and petal cones for the chairs in the ceremony room.

Now that I have my camera back I'll be doing a lot of catching up. I have loads of thrifted items to share and tomorrow, I'll finally be able to show you the wonderful ribbon hanging/banner made for me by Heidi!

Wednesday is the send out date for the Pink and Brown swap, if anyone hasn't heard from their swap partners please let me know!

ciao - Rebecca

Wow. I don't know what you were talking about last week about not do enough of the crafty projects that you wanted. Those boxed gifts for the hotel are amazing. Glad you had a good weekend, and I can't wait to see your recent thrift finds.

What a great idea on the bakery boxes! I'm sure your guests will be thrilled! The ribbons and cards are adorable, too. No wonder you are burned out! You've been doing a ton of wedding work.

ALl your wedding stuff looks so yummy! I can't wait to pictures of your day! It's going to look like something out of a very pretty candy shop! I love the bakery box idea! I will have to tell a friend who's daughter is getting married next year to check it out!

Those boxes look great! Given where you live and are getting married, I can even begin to estimate how much they would run (along with all the other cool stuff you are doing) if you had to pay to have it done. It's a good thing you are crafty!

Awww... ok. Granted, you don't know me, but still! You didn't invite me to the party!! That looked like so much fun (all the good shtuff yall put together) - and I'm dying to see your wedding pictures too. So hurry up and get married already! *giggle*

Adorable! Everything is so cute--and color-coordinated. Love those icy candles.

Oh, those boxes look lovely. Looks like everything is well under control. I LOVE the wrapping on the bridesmaid gifts. If you need an international stand-in bridesmaid at any point may I be front of the queue?!!!

It all looks great Rebecca! I'm sure you're guests will appreciate all your crafty hard work.

You are on the ball! The guest boxes are so neat! I had little bags which I was a bit disapointed in because they ended up being a bit smaller than I wanted. However, my guests loved them, your guests will be blown away! It really is thoughtful!

I hope *Martha*doesn't see this or she will be jealous! I think you should go into the party business! Your guests are going to feel so pampered.
