As I try to taper off my search for inspiration, I couldn’t help but notice this picture in the Weddingbee DIY section:
There is something so simple and sweet about the little hanging ampersand between the two chairs. And, it would match perfectly with our table numbers. We aren’t having a bride and groom sign on our chairs, so I thought it would be a new way to still designate our chairs, but without having to make the signs, since we all know the crafting gene escaped me.
So, I decided to head to Anthropologie and see if I had any luck finding the beloved ampersand. Well, I walked in, got distracted by the sale room and the lovely scent of their signature candle, but I somehow found my way over to housewares, and there it was, sitting and waiting for me. I picked it up and gasped at the $18 price tag for such a simple thing, but I decided to purchase it anyway knowing that if I didn’t want to use it, I could always return it and find a million other things in the store I would want to buy.
I still can’t decide though: is it worth it? Will it look silly hanging between 2 chairs? Do I really want to keep a metal letter for $18? So, I’ve come to you all. Do I scrap the ampersand idea or keep it?
