Quick and easy photo booth props and banners :)

We are currently building a photobooth wall (SO EXCITED) to look something like this. I’ve got a few old hats and other accessories, but it ain’t a photobooth without a few moustaches, right? So I found these free printables, printed them on heavy cardstock, and glued them to some dowels I found in the floral section of Jo-Anns for a few bucks. ImageI’ve also seen those adorable thank you photos like this one:

And I wanted to do that too. I printed them on the same heavy duty card stock, punched some holes in the top, and threaded through some blue and green ribbon. Now we will have cute thank you pictures. I was on a roll, so I made one for my card table too – I put scrapbook paper backing left over from my invitations on the back to make them stand out, since they would be up against a white table. If you want either of these printables, just let me know and I’ll send ’em on over. ๐Ÿ™‚



Our goofy take on table numbers!

Remember that whole “I love photographs” thing? Well I am incorporating them pretty much everywhere possible, and I got a great idea of taking photos with the table numbers from this website,. However, I didn’t love how the couple was just holding a piece of paper with a printed number, so I decided to go a little bigger. I bought 10 pieces of black posterboard (about $5) and cut out large numbers, enough to make all the numbers up to 21.ย  My fiancรฉ’s mom took our photos, and the photos are very accurate to how goofy and odd we are. I got the frames from craiglist for $20 from a bride who had previously used them at her wedding, and printed the photos in black an white ($3 from Walgreens). To make the numbers stand out a bit more, I outlined them in silver glitter puffy paint ($3 from hobby lobby). Voila – table numbers for around $31. I love them ๐Ÿ™‚Image

Cupcake tower!

We decided to go the route of cupcakes, and found a great hometown bakery to whip them up for us: Gwen’s Catering. Her cakes are AAAAAAAMAZING. We went in for a tasting, and I’m not sure what the proper protocol is, but we practically licked our plates clean after each generous slice of cake. And, even better, her cupcakes were very affordable and included a standard 6 inch cake on the top of the cupcake tower for us to cut the cake. Anywhoo…I had no idea how to distinguish cupcake flavors from each other, so I whipped up this little document and threw it in a garage sale frame. I’m meeting with the caterer in a week, and will be coloring the cupcakes to help people find the flavor they want. Yay! If you want the document, just let me know and I’ll email it to you! I literally spent 20 minutes looking for cupcake clipart that was cute enough…I’d hate for anyone to have to do the same. ๐Ÿ˜‰Image
