Ah, another Thursday with no tutorial from me! I have the photos for one, but instead of writing a tutorial yesterday, I turned this:
Yes, I made a set of cornhole boards (the legs are just folded up and out of sight in the second photo). I’m going to paint them up, have them for entertainment at the reception, and then give them away. I don’t know yet if I’ll be successful, but I’m going to try to put the emblem for Papi Chulo’s submarine on one of them. Not only will most of the guests think it’s pretty cool, but it should ensure the winner wants to take the set home without delay! They’re nice enough, but we really don’t have space to hang on to them.
This week I’ve also returned to cutting paper flowers. A couple months ago I started cutting them out by hand, which resulted in me destroying the grips on a new pair of scissors! Since that time I’ve purchased a Silhouette Cameo and it’s made my life much easier. The flowers are going to be stung into paper leis and hung from a bamboo arch (that we’ve yet to make).
I’ve also picked up a couple of additional items, including this mold for chocolate shells to decorate the cake with.
We also got this sort of silly cake serving set. We like it, though, and it fits.
Lastly, these are WIP fish that I may or may not use as a cake topper. We’ll see.
I’ve talked to a few people who thinks it’s really weird we didn’t hire a wedding planner and are doing everything ourselves, but I’m pleased with our decision. Quite honestly, the average amount people pay for wedding planing services in Oahu is more than we’re spending on the whole thing! I’ve worked at well over 100 outdoor weddings over the years, and I have a pretty good idea of what I want and don’t want. Besides, I’ve been having too much fun getting everything ready myself to want to hand the project off to someone else!
I hope everyone’s having a great week and I look forward to sharing more soon. =)
