Wedding Signs, Sweetie Bag Labels and a Decorative Tree

Isn't that a catchy title?!  This is the last of my wedding craft related posts - phew!  I've grouped the outstanding bits into this post, and then we'll hear no more about it!

*I've linked to the products I used - if they've got an asterix then they are an affiliate link.  If not, then they're not.  You don't pay anything more for using an affiliate link - I would just get a few pennies if you did buy anything.  (I think I would, anyway - I wouldn't really know as I've never earned anything so far, in the very very rare times I've tried using an affiliate link!  But that's fine by me - I'm just a hobby blogger!)

I made a couple of signs for the wedding.  One to go with the guest book...

Wedding Guest Book Sign

I printed on the same hammered card I used for all the rest of my wedding crafting (hard to see the texture in the photo, but it made it look a little fancier!) and put it in a box frame with a gold bow.

The gold bow picked up the gold on the guest book and the pens.  I made crepe paper peonies to go with them as a bit of extra decoration.

The other sign was for the sweet table...

This was the same style box frame as the other one.  I just had these at home - bought from Homebase years ago.  I printed on the hammered card again and used an aqua bow this time - that matched all the place names and menus.  The colour scheme of the wedding was aqua with touches of pink and a bit of gold.

I made labels for the sweetie bags.  I ordered the bags from Amazon - links below - and designed my own labels that I printed off and stuck on.

And finally, I decorated a white decorative tree with aqua, pink and gold bows that I made from ribbon.  I firstly wrapped it in tiny wire fairy lights, that I already had from a couple of Christmases ago.

This went on the sweet table too.

Aqua Ribbon (I think it's this one - I bought it in store)
The pink and gold ribbon was also from Hobbycraft, but I'm not sure which ones.

Here was the sweet table on the day...

I don't think the lights on the tree were switched on yet - as they were only put on when the evening guests arrived and the sweet table was made available to all!

Sweet Jars * (they were plastic)
Sweet Tongs - I bought them from ebay, but the seller appears to have been removed from ebay!  There are plenty on Amazon, though - like these * which look the same as the ones I bought.

And I do believe that is it on the Wedding crafting front!

  1. I missed the sweet table! Cannot believe that! Looks very pretty though, and

  2. Oh no - you missed all that sugary goodness!! xxx

  3. Oh no I don't think I signed your beautiful guest book!!! 😭 I saw it and thought to myself, I better think of something clever to write in that ... and then I forgot!

    In reality though, it's probably best I didn't write anything. Because I'd probably end up drawing something ... 😜 xx

    1. p.s. I kept one of each of the pink and blue treat bags! I just couldn't not. And snuck a third bag full of treats back to my room in The Shining later that night.

    2. Not that many people did write in the guest book actually. In hindsight, I don't think it was worth having one! Everyone gives you a card with a message in - writing in the guest book as well is probably overkill! Ah well, you live and you learn. (And talking of drawing something - someone actually did!!! One of Rob's friends we assume!) Aw, I'm glad you kept a couple of the bags - and had a full bag to keep you company as you battled to survive the night!
