And Lastly, the Decorations

The last pics from Ben and Keren’s wedding are the decorations (and a few of other things). I reused many a things once again to create the centerpieces and ceiling decor and it came out beautiful!

Hanging from the ceiling
She wanted a garden feel, so we added butterflies to the centerpieces and also the lanterns.

Bride and Groom's head table
Head Table. Keren bought the tux and dress favor boxes at the Dollar Tree. I suggested adding the little details to make them more festive. She glued a small flower onto the tux and tied a ribbon around the dress and glued a flower in front on that ribbon.

Cupcake Tower Table

My mom made the cupcake tower out of styrofoam. Then glued on beaded trim, then glued lace on top of the beaded trim at the top edge of each layer. She then cut pieces of wrapping paper to go around each layer.

    Hello. I just discovered your blog as a link off another’s and IMO your creativity is wonderful and inspiring. I love the little bits of making things work on a small budget — a cupcake stand made of styrofoam and decorated with beads?? Incredible! I’m saving you to my bookmarks! :o)

      I don’t remember the building, but I know it was in Downtown Hagerstown, Maryland. From what I remember, they don’t have many places to rent, so it should be easy to find :)
