Shameless Plugging

Guess what I did tonight?? I entered our chocolate escort cards to The Bride’s Guide’s wedding favor contest!! Today’s the last day for submissions and I don’t really know what possessed me but yeah, I went ahead and did it. 😯

Now comes the shameless plug– if you so choose, you can go and vote for us :-) . You must be signed in to the Martha Stewart website in order to vote. C’mon peeps, pleeeaase send some love our way! 😛 You can view all the submissions over at MarthaStewart.com’s gallery. Thank you all in advance!

Below is my submission:

Double Duty Favors
DIY personalized chocolates served as escort cards and favors for our guests. It was a big hit and became extra snacks during cocktail hour. The front label showed each guest’s name and table assignment; while the back had our monogram and our little trivia behind the table name (named after places significant to our relationship) . We kept all our colors, fonts, and graphics consistent with the rest of our wedding paper goods. This helped pull all of our day’s elements together beautifully.

  2. Petite Tote Bags with free monogramming (Ballard Designs)

Tutorial: Eco-chic Chandelier

Planning an outdoor wedding or dinner party? Here’s a simple DIY garden chandelier tutorial from Ecologue. What a great way to reuse those little glass jars you may already have at home!

What you need: a circular gridded cooling rack (just reuse if you have an old one); some wire; some beaded chain; one big S hook; and a dozen or so little ones.

Watch the video here or download the PDF guide here.
