Cake Forks

I stumbled upon these darling forks over on Etsy and thought they would make a great addition to your cake cutting ceremony, they would also make a great wedding gift. Priced under $20 what a great deal!

Easy, Inexpensive Photo Frame Centerpieces

When I got married, I desperately wanted to incorporate our dogs into our ceremony, for us, that wasn’t going to happen. So I needed a great, easy solution to incorporate our dogs into our weeding. Martha to the rescue!

The directions were easy enough- Disassemble three like-sized frames, setting aside their fronts and discarding their backings. Paint or stain wooden frames desired color; let dry. Upload or scan photographs into a computer. With editing software, make the images black and white, and resize them to fit your frames. Print them onto vellum paper with an ink-jet printer. Slip the images into the frames. Using cloth tape, hinge frames together to form a triangle. Stand frames around a candle in a protective glass holder.

Supplies I used: Ikea Ram Frames (available in store only), Orange Paint, White Crackle Paint, Kota, Cheyenne, Vellum  #29 from Paper and More, Medical Tape, Battery Powered Candles (not my favorite, but outside in the wind, real candles weren’t going to stand a chance)

Models: Kota as groom, sporting a shirt and tie, and Cheyenne as the bride, wearing a veil. We tossed a sheet over the dining room table to serve as a back drop, dressed up the doggies, and took about 150 shots.

I followed the directions per Martha’s Instruction. And loved the finished product, still three years later, I still love them and they adorn my desk.
