wedding wednesday :: screen printing

The cute table display in the first image caught my eye while flipping through an old copy of Martha Stewart Weddings and used it as my inspiration for my Indie I Do booth display. Although, it may not work well for a large wedding, it would definitely be eye catching for the head table or as decoration for smaller events leading up to the wedding. This may also work well if you have a small kids table at your event. Just leave a pack of crayons and the kids can go crazy during the speeches prior to the start of dinner!

Here are some more handmade touches that we incorporated into our booth…

Using a blender pen, we transferred our logo onto old book pages.

Paper cuts. I loved how this turned out! Sorry to any librarians that may reading this!

Here is another interesting idea found via Martha Stewart for those interested in screen printing and adding a unique touch to their seating plans!
