Little Touches

Posted on: Wednesday, November 7, 2012

This post gives you a glimpse into a number of the little decoration details I worked on and accumulated to make the day a little more fun, a little more pretty, and yes, a little more sparkly. I spent a lot of time on Etsy and Pinterest, getting ideas and ordering little things; with some I had a specific plan for, other things I thought "buy now, make it work later," especially since I was gathering all of the decoration down in Texas, and couldn't possibly envision exactly how everything would be used in the old PA farm. I warped some ideas I saw about the internets, and came up with some on my own as well. The farm is a big place to fill, and it has a lot of character on its own, so I didn't feel I had to fill every open space with something.  My aim, rather, was for there to be little some larger points of focus, and other little touches that some people would care about notice and others might not. I received many compliments on all of the little details I put into the decoration, and it really made me feel good that people appreciated and enjoyed the fruits of my frenzied wedding planning labor! I am usually one of those people who, if I want something done right I will just do it myself, but luckily I had my ladies and mom to help set up a couple days before the event, and they came up with some great ideas for where to place certain things, helped poof the tissue paper flowers, and overall made the daunting decorating process go very smoothly. The farm looked wonderful, I just couldn't get over it.

PS- I will try to source and give info on where I got everything at a later date. I don't have time to right now, but it may be a winter break project!
