Planning a Party?

With holidays around the corner, there is plenty to celebrate! To help spark some ideas of your own, here are ways customers have used wire card holders at their parties:

Adysen's birthday Celebration - wire card holders

These photos are from 2-year old Adysen's birthday party. Whatever the event you're celebrating, wire card and photo holders can add some fun decoration or direction for your guests.

If you’re featuring a main dish, desserts, or drinks as a theme to your party, consider decorating your table with buffet labels for the variety of the featured refreshment. For example, if you’re having a hot chocolate party, label peppermint hot chocolate, vanilla hot chocolate, and caramel and honey hot chocolates, etc. Or if you’re having pies for dessert label the banana cream pie, the pumpkin pie, the pecan pie, etc.

These star and heart card holders were used to label the homemade ice creams offered at Adysen's Party. Decorate your wedding or holiday party buffet table with labels and wire card holders for the dishes and desserts you offer.

Unique Handmade, Handcrafted boutineers and wedding flowers Tutorial - Wire Home Decor Weddings

Use ribbons, beads, and feathers that correspond with your wedding colors and the outfits you've picked for your groomsmen and bridemaids.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Tools: scissors, hot glue gun
  • Materials: ribbon, feathers, beads, felt, and your choice of clip for however you decide to incorporate your flowers,whether it be a hair clip, a boutonnière pin, headband, clasp, etc.
Unique Handmade, Handcrafted boutineers and wedding flowers Tutorial - Wire Home Decor Weddings

(1) Cut a small circle from your felt. (2) Using the hot glue gun, adhere your feathers to the felt in a circle, each pointing outward. (3) Next, create a few loops with your decorative ribbon to your liking. and glue them to the back of your feathers. (4) Flip your flower so that the felt piece is facing you, and glue your beads over the felt. (If you buy a strand of beads, keep them on the string while you place them into the hot glue and snip the ends once the beads are in place. Otherwise, you can sprinkle the beads to cover the glue and shake the excess from the flower.)

Now, depending on how you’ll be using your flower, the final step is to glue it to the clip of your choice or grab a boutonnière pin to stick it with. If you’re using a hair pin or plastic/metal headband, consider wrapping the pin or band in ribbon to created a more finished look.

And, since this is more of a girly flower, I’ve also included instructions for this simple boutonnière.

(1) Shape your ribbon into an accordion and glue the loops in place. (2) Add some small detail with a line of beads. (3) incorporate the tips of 2-4 feathers behind the ribbon (4) and add a little accent ribbon to complete the flower.

Note: After reading through my suggestions, maybe they will spark some ideas of your own. Get creative! Use whatever materials you think would look good! You’re definitely not limited to the materials I suggest.

What makes great table centerpieces?

Wedding Reception Area

Table Decorations

1. Entertaining but not too distracting – It isn’t long before guests have finished talking about the weather or asking people nearby how they know the host. Decorations can be entertaining and invite attention. They can even engage guests to discuss other topics or reflect on their own memories and experiences. However avoid going too far. Remember your guests likely did not come to see and play with your table decorations.

2. Multi level – adds dimension however don’t go too high that it interferes with seeing other things and not too wide that you cannot adequately sit and converse around the table. This of course depends on the size of your tables. You also don’t want it to be too small or too short because it wont have an impact and is otherwise not worth the effort.

3. Matchy Matchy - You want the decor to match the atmosphere and environment that you are trying to create at your wedding or event.

4. Inexpensive – Too valuable and it wont just be the silverware that you need to worry about guests walking off with. Now this isn’t a likely problem but it is like dressing for the occasion, too much or too little and your guests might feel out of place.

5. Unique – A unique table decoration sets itself apart from other events that guests have likely gone to. Worst case would be to have the same decorations as at a previous wedding. You easily have the same theme and even use some of the same props but make it entirely unique for your wedding or event.

6. Same theme but with character – What I mean is that you want your table decorations to all follow a similar theme or design. But at the same time you want each table to be slightly different from the next which creates character. Character is of course natural when using hand crafted items. Think of a bouquet of flowers. The florist will use the same flowers and pieces but maybe varies the design or a slightly different design. Another great example is pictures in a photo holder. It would be best to use similar pictures but different shots for different tables making it fun and exciting to mix and mingle.

These are six quick ideas. Please tell us what you think. Have these or similar ideas been helpful for you? What else would you recommend?
