The Birdie Wedding Project


Hello all! Welcome to my first ever blog! It is about a wedding and some birdies. I was recently married in March...Yay! It was an amazing day that could not have been possible without all of the support of our friends and family. I ended up creating all of the wedding paraphernalia at home from random scraps and stuffs. It was tedious at times, but it was all worth it. I just wanted to see the smiles on my loved ones faces. I chose to create everything around one theme...Love Birds!!! I guess I could also call the theme "That is the cutest thing I have ever seen!"
That is the reply that I received the most for this one...our cake topper.
It is pretty cute. I made these two love birds out of scrap fabric and lace. The legs are made of wires and the eyeballs are old "Bedazzler" pieces. I have finally found a use for those previously useless things. Below is our guest book.

This book is quite special. A very special friend handed this wooden portfolio (handcrafted by her grandmother) to me a while ago and said "I know you can use this for something." I figured I would since wooden found objects are my favorite things to paint on. So, I filled the book with paper and slapped a pair o' birds on the cover. The birds are made of scrap fabric and the legs and heart are painted on with acrylic paint.

This is a look inside the book. "Guests, please sign" is stamped on the opening page with a stamp of two birdies on the bottom of each page in the book. Below is a bouquet that I handcrafted for each of my six bridesmaids, completely crafted out of scrap fabric.


Below is my husbands "Button-eer." I created one of these for each groomsman as well.
They wore them on their shirt pockets.


Below is a pic of Susan. She kept interrupting the photo shoot. She wanted to make an appearance on Kasleberry Blogfest.

These jars below are the wedding favors. I tried to make as many as I could, hoping that at least each family attending the wedding would get one. They are recycled jars from our Trader Joe's shopping spree. Each jar has a one of a kind drawing inside of two birds in love. I was so happy to see that all of these jars were gone before the reception was over. What can I say...people love birds.

This jar below is my personal favorite. I wonder who got this one???

Good bye for now! We will be back soon!
