I really wanted to make my own save the dates. I wanted them to be simple, yet reflect a touch of my own creativity.
This is what I came up with, pre-full assembly: I just designed the layout on Microsoft Word. I downloaded various fonts and bought laurel images to tie eveything together. Pictures were easily developed from Costco.
I have been looking up videos and reading up on doing your own wedding flowers and it always looks so doable and easy to me. Even so, I know I had to actually try it out and see how it turns out in reality.
I finally paid a visit to a flower shop. The selection there could have been better and have more variety, but I picked up what I thought would work together and would go with the colors I have in mind.
This is what I left with: some eucalyptus leaves, wax flowers, hydrangeas, & roses.
This is what I ended up with:
It isn’t exactly what I want for my bouquet, but I’m pretty happy with it. I might give it another try with different flowers and I also found out I do not like the smell of wax flowers so I probably won’t be using it as a filler next time.
I have been saving a lot of jars for the past year or so because I knew they were going to be used in my wedding.
I started glittering some of them this past weekend! So fun!
I used painters tape that I cut a scalloped design on to tape around the jars. Mod podge was used to adhere fine glitter onto the jars. Tada! I’m still deciding if I should/want to put on a waterproof sealer on top of the glitter as flowers/water will be filling these beautiful jars.
I was searching the Internet for the perfect way to ask my sisters and friends to be apart of my wedding next year. Searches mainly lead to Pinterest and etsy and I found a lot of cute things and ideas, but nothing really caught my attention.
I wanted to make something special and cute. Thanksgiving was coming up when the perfect idea came to mind…
I put together little things I was thankful for…
Underneath all those little things was a card that said…
And then I stuffed everything into a box…
Can’t wait to make things for the wedding!
Finally starting a little blog to compile all my/our interests, hobbies, and loves into one place.
This little outlet was named kandjhappydays because these entries will most likely incorporate both Kevin and I. Originally a hashtag (#kandjhappyday) was created to collect pictures on Instagram related to our wedding, but I’ll like to believe our happy days are not limited to one…thus the creation of this little blog!
More than likely entries will be about our dog, Ava, whom we really think is one of the best dogs in the world. Sometimes it might just be a picture of her…but sometimes those are the best.
I will also be sharing the meals have together, as we eat predominately paleo, because it has changed our lives and hope that it inspires others to eat healthier and more mindfully. We also crossfit together, which I’ll probably not talk too much about because you’ll probably not enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing about it. But, it has not only improve our lives and health individually, but has made our relationship grow stronger,which naturally happens as a couple do things together.
Another big reason I wanted to start this blog was to record all the DIYness that will go into our wedding. I am so excited!
