made well with love...

my pal amy merrick from an apple a day has a very darling d-i-y tutorial, made with love on design sponge. her first two posts would be very easy to translate into wedding fanfare.

how sweet would this be to have banners of old love letters hanging over a table, with blank stacks of paper and ephemera for folks to sign and add to the garland? like an ever-evolving banner of love that increases as the night progresses?

*bonus points for stringing up on your anniversary, as suggested by one of the commenters.

and i want to learn how to do this with my wedding bouquet? any ideas how? i'm nervous to go and experiment with it. how can i preserve the most special flowers from the best day of my entire life? i need to know.


  1. You could dry them and then decoupage them onto small, thick edged canvases, painted in the color of your choice and hang them as a little cluster.

  2. Pressing flowers is sorta tricky if they're already dried. Have you tried to press one or two in your flower press? I don't think you'll be able to keep the flowers in the original bouquet if you press them. I don't know, let's discuss!

  3. Oh, wow, these ideas are simply wonderful. Love them.

    Be sure and pop by & leave a note!
