Eat, Drink, and Be Married

This was our wedding theme.  I used vinyl on tubs I found on clearance at Bed, Bath, and Beyond at the end of the summer.  We used them for various jobs at the reception.

The same design and vinyl was used to resize and apply to foam huggies.

More vinyl + etching cream + time =

A little bit of white gulf Sanibel sand....
Viola' !

Wine charms the colors of the tablecloths.  Each table was a different tropical color.

Wine charm on glasses at the tables.

These were made from shrink material.  The tags were cut at 3" then written on with silver calligraphy marker and shrunk.

I used beading thread to string a few little plastc and glass beads.  On the bamboo ends of parasols (from Oriental Trading) I screwed in small eye hooks.  I tied these through the eyes and then sealed the knots with clear nail polish.

Every lady had one for the beach sun.

Probably the most memorable activity was taking your photo in front of the painted backdrop.  I drew on then painted in the two palm trees and included plenty of leis, coconut bras, and even grass skirts.  Some just were happy to smile for the camera.    My beautiful step-daughter and her grandmother.  Then there were others....

A good time was had by all!
