With all of this we got a BBQ feast from a local restaurant - Bound'ry, 2 drinks per person (we used tickets to monitor who got what), the venue, ipod hookup for music and a dance floor! That didn't leave a whole lot for decor, but I think I did pretty well with what we had!
Most supplies were found from my high school days, or from the Dollar Tree. I made the photo collages with photos from our yearbook, and added in a few colorful extras for fun. Photo booth props came from my wedding (we did the Harlem Shake), as did the vases.
I made these fun guys from vases I had (6x6 squares) and used burlap ribbon and satin blue ribbon (2 rolls for $4.99 each of the burlap, and 2 rolls for $2.99 each of the satin - I used coupons on some) and wrapped each vase, using hot glue to secure. I wrote in gold paint pen I had around the center. The insides were blue crepe stuffing and assorted sunflower versions from Dollar Tree. The berries were originally red but I spray painted them blue with Short-Kuts paint for $2.29 (don't use regular, I made that mistake and my berries got ruined). I used about 4 cans to do all berries really well. 4 ribbon bows at the end completed the main table centerpieces.
These were even simpler! I just picked up blue flowers (4 in each stem) for $0.99 each, and cut them to size. I had the vases and stones already, so all I had to do was add a floating candle to each - $3.99 for 8 from Party City.
I also ordered various other decorations, you can see them on Friday's post of the finished project!
